Hi Nick,

Welcome to wonderland. What was the Sport like when you first got it; just interested to see what $1000 can get you?

GuinnessDave, I had a TRX for a couple of years, swapped it about 4 months ago for a 1980 Moto Morini Sport 500. The TRX was pleasant, but it is no Ducati, was glad to pass it on.

Cheers,

Fraser.

Welcome to the site. the only home for the Sport on the Web. Looks as though your previous owner(s) spent a lot of time on your bike, though they didn't change too much, besides paint and exhaust pipes. Looks good so far. How's it ride?

Cheers, Phil

The bike was not looking like that when i got it, was in pieces and the fairings had been damaged. The motor, however, is in great running order with the exception that the countershaft has worn splines which is obviously a problem.
I have done the brakes, welded up the swingarm and so on. It was not THAT much of a bargain, but a good chance to get a Ducati and i really love riding it.
It has got a nice new Dunlop rear tyre.
