So I aquired what I believe is to be a 1965 Mach 1 SC here in AK of all places. It is mechanicaly sound and needs only minor restoration in my opinion. My problem is, due to the rarity of this particular model, I am having trouble finding examples of the original bikes. I have combed the net and only found a mention of the bike here and there, but very few examples of what it looked like at the time. There has been some add ons and modifications over the years, but I need some resources to get her back the way she was. Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions? I emailed Ducati directly, and am waiting to hear back from them.
I am posting this at work, and will try and post some pics later this evening if I have time.

Found one in North Pole ak as well

I found one that is similar in the interior of Alaska. Did you ever find anymore information about it. May be a different year not really sure. Do you or anyone else know how much it is worth as is and restored.

Have a look at the casings and castings.
Be sure all parts say made in Italy rather than Made in Spain. If it's Spain then you have a Mototrans.

The photos in the second one would appear to be the Italian Ducati as designated by the 'DM' on the casting ( for Ducati Meccanica, the Spanish have 'MD' for Mototrans Ducati )

Sorry for dredging up an old post, but I don't sign on here all that often. As I'm guessing you already know, that bike isn't a Mach 1. The frame is missing lugs a Mach 1 would have, and the seat, tank, and triple are all incorrect. Judging by the triple and the lack of frame lugs, I'd say it's probably a Monza. Still a fun little project though.
