yes indeed, the desmodromic valve gear is clearly visible...

Glad to see I'm not the only one here to share an interest in these historic old 'tiddlers'

(Pic: 1 & 2) 1949 Ducati 60cc .. this model being the first ever Ducati motorcycle!

Pictured among a representative lineup of early Ducati singles through the years

(tasty red model is the Mach 1; my brother owned one in the early 1980s, it rode like a feather and sounded XLNT)

Moto Guzzi

(1) Any suggestions as to what this one is, in military green? Was very low in overall height

Pictures tell the story, a beautiful bike! Magnificent example of a highly regarded model, afiak an outstanding machine in their day

Thanks for providing ID to those cars (will edit this info into my original posts) and this ends my pic contribution

I think the engine block reads "Guzzi" too.

Yes a Guzzi, but I've no idea what model, mods or spec? I assume it was a single cyl but didn't look

Ahh...gorgeous cars! Always love the Italian cars the most...especially the Ferraris! Thanks for the pics.

I saw a blue 365 GTB/4 Daytona on the way home from NC last weekend, but couldn't snap a pic, as I was driving. They're pretty rare in the US, at least I haven't seen more than a handful.
