Flashback. The 1957 Ducati 175 S.

The Ducati S/T were produced from 1957 to 1961. Engine is a four stroke, single cylinder, SOHC, shaft and bevel gear driven. 175.4 cc/10.7 cu inch with a 4-speed transmission. Front and rear brakes are full aluminum Drum, 180 mm front 160 mm rear.

Leopoldo Tartarini’s and Giorgio Monetti’s trek around the world on a Ducati 175s, an extraordinary adventure in the history of Ducati and in international motorcycling as well. The goal of this incredible, pioneering trip, lasting an entire year (September ’57 to September ’58) and hitting the roads of all the continents, was to advertise the Ducati brand and to build a network of dealers in countries where Ducati was still unknown.

    175cc = 107ci?! I don’t think so!
    Beautiful bike though.

    My God, just look at that craftsmanship of the fuel tank. Now everything is plastic and mass produced look and feel. It is true they just don’t make them like that anymore.

    I wonder what it cost then, and what the average income was.
