Ducati 350 SC
The 350 Sport Corsa (or SC) was different mechanically from the
production street sport bikes. The engine included sand-cast
crankcases with either 250 or 350 SC and an engine number stamped on
the left crankcase near the cylinder. It was designed to accommodate
the double cradle frame. The cylinder head was sand-cast 350 F3
type, with shorter camshafts than the Mach 1. There was also a
close-ratio, 5-speed gearbox that was unique to the SC. Only a half
a dozen 350s were built during 1965.
The Sport Corsa Desmo (or SCD)
although obviously related, was more than a Desmo version of the SC.
One can assume that each was indeed bespoke, certainly hand
assembled one by one and not necessarily in the Ducati factory
itself. It is extremely difficult to establish a specification for
the series. Even the frames differed from bike to bike – this
example has a special twin down tube frame, not the single down
tube, which was more common. It has the usual Marzocchi 35mm forks.
The 350 Desmo motor is just over square with a 76mm bore and 75mm
stroke (as the street motor) and pumps out a quoted 41hp at 10,500
