Additional photos of this Ducati Scrambler 350 are available here for your perusal.

Back in the 1960s, American importer Joe Berliner was managing to bring in so many Ducatis that he had garnered some sway with the Italian manufacturer’s corporate big wigs. At the time, dirt was all the rage here in the states, so when he asked for a do-everything option fit for younger riders, Ducati happily obliged. What resulted was the Scrambler 250, a dual-sport based on the road-going Diana which Berliner had converted for dirt track competitions.

A few years later, that had evolved into the 350 you see before you. While some early models were sold with the narrow-case Sebring engine shoved into a 250 frame, Ducati eventually released a series of ‘wide-case’ Scramblers in 1968 — bikes with frames that were widened to fit the new engines. That same year, Ducati also introduced a 5-speed transmission and a set of 35mm forks. Even though the 350 did not receive the infamous desmo valve train, they were still quick enough, as the 336cc engine produced 24 horsepower.

This example is VIN: 05601. The seller notes that it is a “first year wide case model.” He acquired it two years ago from Holiday Cycle in Alamogordo, New Mexico.

During his ownership, he has covered roughly 100 miles. The odometer shows 10,937 kilometers (6,795 miles).

The seller reports that “the chassis has been powdercoated” and that “the engine rebuilt from the crank, with new bearings, both top and lower end, machined valves and seats.” Furthermore, the “wheels have new chrome and stainless steel spokes, new scrambler tires, and polished hubs” and the “fork seals, chain and rear shock absorbers are also new.”

Finally, the seller notes that “bike runs on stock magneto ignition and it is not wired for lights, handlebar light switch included.”

Sealed beam headlight.

Inside of the tank:

It is riding on Shinko SR41 tires with date codes of 1821 and 2521.

Cosmetic Blemishes: please see the album up top for all known cosmetic blemishes. Here is a selection:
“Minor paint defect on left headlight bracket.”

“Small dent on rear rim, functionality not affected.”

Currently located in Phoenix, Arizona, this Ducati is offered on a clean Arizona title with registration current through November 2023.
