The Appeal 

Ducati’s Paul Smart 1000 LE was designed to pull at the heart strings. With good reason: it celebrated the racer’s win at Imola in 1972, a race that changed the maker’s fortunes. 
Combining beautiful vintage styling with thoroughly modern, knee-dragging performance, the Paul Smart is much more than a retro special edition. Ask contemporary reviewers: they were fully won over by its looks and ability.
Just 2,000 were sold worldwide. This must be one of the nicest, a two-keeper, low mileage example that has been fastidiously looked after through its life. Always garaged and regularly serviced, it comes to market in very good order. 
The vendor has invested in a comprehensive service prior to sale, including timing belt, brake fluid, battery and other fettling. It also has a recent Gutachten, the Austrian technical inspection, which is valid to March 2025. 
This is a great example of a highly evocative and very capable bike.
