 lovely little single cylinder wide case ducati spotted in the entrance hall of the auction room at race retro, anyone know what the tank is? dangerous is a font of all knowledge when it comes to the ducati meccanica racing singles having made a good fist of racing one to a very high standard in the early sixties and he had never seen this before, what's more exciting is that everyones favourite dress wearing, sheep-bothering and bearded welshman, the former #42 now #24, top mz racer, [this next bit to be shouted like that american bloke who announces the boxers at the big fights], 'misssssttter desssssssss daviesssssssssssss' has actually bought one and it's currently residing under a blanket in his shed, a quick phone call from des and it's booked in for the loveless 'treatment', des being des then say's, 'when you've done it you can get dangerous to parade it or you can race it if you want boyo....'
