Long story short, after 35yrs off the road the Duke yesterday had its first 'good' run. She's a 250,non-desmo but with a race head on top, but my god it has legs. Anyway this has been a longgggg time coming (my father & myself have owned since the mid 90's). Its been sitting in boxes since the mid 70's, dad worked with the bikes owner for roughly 30+yrs. Sadly the owner died (in the mid 90's) & the owners wife asked my father if he wanted to buy it, we went 50/50.
