More for Paul Smart Week at Ducati.net...

If immitation is the sincerest form of flattery, this should make Mr. Smart smile. On offer in the upcoming Monaco RM auction from the Carlo Salterelli collection, it's constructed from period parts quite similar to the original Imola machines of which only 7 were constructed by the factory.  (The photo of the glass transporter Ductalk ran earlier this week shows the 7 bikes)   To read more on this bike check out the incredible digital catalog of the entire collection (click the headline above for the link to the catalog)
