I took one look at the setup and immediately thought, "Ducati Cucciolo" straight out of 1949. That's where the marque started on two wheels, and only offered the motor, to be easily attached to whatever seignor was riding at the time. I've only seen a couple of them, but invariably they were attaced to a proper period Italian bicycle. Sorry, don't remember any names at the moment, my attention was on the Ducati portion.

Shows how good engineering never goes out of style.
