Pocher 1/4 Ducati resuscitated
« on: August 02, 2020, 07:55:18 PM »

Hi all I decided to resurrect this model. Not sure which way I'm going yet, tricolour, rat bike or maybe another custom job.
I actually quite like how it looks with the covers off and dusty it kind of looks naturally neglected

Amazing, I was looking at buying one of these a while ago, but my wife knows you can get a running full size motorbike for the same amount (not a ducati, unless you are really lucky)
Did you add any details to the exhaust system? I was thinking the welds looked pretty realistic.

these bikes are a work of art, to allow it to get into the state it is in deserves a hand slap. Never mind, it will not take long to get it pristine again. I could never have afforded  Ducati, the desmos were just coming in when I stopped riding. I cannot help comparing the simplicty of a vertical twin to the modern bike of today. nemesis

Probably a similar size is this single cylinder sidevalve. Its pretty simple. Quick for a generator. Lol. Not exactly as nice looking as the Ducati.
I look forward to seeing this project, whatever direction you take it. Cafe racer?
