  1. Found this beauty at a mate's place this afternoon.

    1973 Ducati 750 Sports fully maintained in original condition using only original parts.

    Love the riding position!

  2. What a beaut..... nice find Rod. Will your mate let you play with it? ;-)

    Riding position? Classic "cafe racer" style...... you might appreciate this baby I had in Pattaya a few years ago.

    281045=11594-1200cc%20H-D%20Sportster%20Cafe%20Racer.%20Sept%202005%20001.

    No, not a Duke but I'm sure I'll be forgiven as we're talking riding positions!
     
  3. That is the most beautiful bike ever made and the bike that started my addictive love of Ducatis ,i actually rode one for 3 months in 1982 lent to me by a mate who wanted to borrow my Norton Command and Harley Sporster !!! if it goes to Auction in Europe or USA it will fetch $75,000 -$120,000 in that condition
     
  4. beautiful bike,lets not get carried away here with the price monstaman ,a good one will go for about $40000-$45000 in aust.Its not a 750 supersport green frame with desmo heads, its a 750 sport with valve springs.still a very ,very collectable bike and i would love one in the shed.If he ever wants to sell it let me know.cheers Greg
     
  5. i saw the faired race model sold at Bonhams Auction in UK last year for £69,500,and a few months ago a 1974 750ss desmo came up in Florida auctions at $120,000 my friend Wayne still has his in NZ he bought it new in 1975 in UK and shipped it to NZ in 1991 its had 6 rebuilds and has covered over 170,000 miles , he reckons its worrth about $60,000 US.But I doubt he will ever sell it .
     
  6. Wow that's in beautiful condition Rod. I worked in a Ducati dealership around 74 in Rockhampton Aus and the head mechanic had one, no chance a pimply faced teenager would be able to take it for a spin, but the boss had a 860 GTS as a demo/shop bike.

    I was always in trouble for taking 30 or 40 minutes to get the morning smoko but the road to the top of the local mountain was beckoning.
    The boss was a great guy, and obviously didn't believe me when I would tell him the bakery had run out of pies and had to wait for the next batch! I guess the huge grin on my dial was a dead giveaway!
