This bike was available in Europe in 250 and 350 versions as well as the 450. In 1971, Ducati released a variant for off-road use called the R/T and another street version called the Silver Shotgun. Unlike British manufacturers of the time, Italy’s Ducati was successful in re-inventing itself. It did this with a line of larger capacity V-twins, but first it went racing, on 500 cc Desmo GP bikes and the Ducati Imola 750 Desmo. In 1971 Paul Smart won the Imola 200 on the V-twin. - Wiki.

A new force is about to reach out to the stars and make waves in the universe of the endless summer. The Gods of the foaming barrel will turn their heads and vie to posses and make sacred the light from this flame. From this moment on the sun will not seem so bright. Easfull death has now been made agony by the realisation that the next flicker from this fire will be missed. Fear should fill our hearts with the knowledge that so much of our lives luck must have been consumed with the chance of just existing in the world at the same time as this being. A super surfing nova is born. Be brave, look into the light...if you dare - HERE.

At the recent Phillip Island Classic I met a lovely man call Lofty.
He is a JAWA specialist and the bikes that he has worked on are truly special. Here is his recently restored 1954 JAWA 500cc DOHC factory race bike.
Contact Lofty if you have a Jawa that needs some special attention,
he is the man.
