Collection

We don’t just work on Ducatis, we’re also passionate about the history of the company and the engineering behind the objects.

Below are some but not all of the items we have collected, and if you would like to see them in more detail just click on the image.

We have in the collection something from every decade and manufacturing field by Ducati. The collection includes important items such as Manens, Duconta, Raselet and Dufono. It also contains rare two stroke Ducatis, stationary engines, boat motors, push and pull rod singles, bevel singles, bevel twins, belt two valvers, and belt four valvers.

We’re also currently slowly restoring a 350 Scrambler, 350 Shotgun, 350 Vento, 450TS, another E750 Elefant, a TT1, NCR 900 as well as a 9hp stationary diesel engine and a few other bits and pieces. The slow part is – they happen as we get money. All the bikes and pieces are self-funded and don’t come out of Belt and Bevel income.


Starting from the beginning, Ducati produced radio and electrical components. One of the best known early Ducati products was the Manens condenser.

Here are three examples in our collection including one unopened in its original packet. Note the SSR marking on the top.

 The Manens condensers were used in radios, so it was a natural progression for Ducati to build their own. Here are some of Belt and Bevel’s radios.

The Raselet was produced by Ducati before World War Two and typically came in black, white, or ‘red’ which was more of a maroon brown colour. Some Raselets were branded with GM for General Motors.

Here are the adding machines that Ducati created as there was nothing similar available at the time.

The early unit is mechanical, and the slightly later unit has the Magnetti Marelli motor on the back.

And here are the Post World War Two items, when Ducati started with engines and later motorcycles.

The Cucciolo was designed to be bolted onto a pushbike chassis along with controls, fuel tank and pedal set to motorise the bicycle.
