Thanks for the pics, Jim.  I love that pristine Ducati Regolarita- you simply never see those bikes.  Very cool.

I recognized most of those bikes, but what is the yellow bike in the foreground of the first picture?  I can't make out the placard.

Placard reads "TWIN TRACTION 500"
It's a Trail Partner Twin Traction 2x2 model made by Tredwell in Canada, very rare little Rokon-like bike.

Trail Partner Twin Traction 500, made in Prince George, British Columbia, Canada between 1968 and 1971. Full time 2WD from a 5hp Briggs and Stratton side valve. They made them in this 2 wheel version as well as a 3 wheel trike and a three wheel with a second trailing rear wheel. Company went bankrupt in 1971, very few are thought to survive. I may make an offer to buy it and restore it. The tires are the same as used on an Argo. This one came from a power line service company in northern British Columbia. Like a Rokon but small wheels and much simpler.

Itís a real cool Ducati, the owner has restored two of them, this blue one and its red twin found in a barn in Saskatchewan. It took Mike years to find all the NOS parts. I am always amazed what members in our local vintage group keep dragging out of barns and sheds around here.

That is a most impressive array of bikes.  You seem to be in a hotbed of dedicated collectors and restorers!
