For Sale: 1987 Ducati 750 F1
Fresh from our April 1 escapades (you DID realize it was April Fool’s Day, didn’t you?) comes this fantastic 1987 Ducati F1 in classic Italian tri-colore livery. Built during Ducati’s dark days of the mid-to-late 1980s – sales were way down and Ducati was struggling financially – the 750 F1 was intended to evoke the company’s TT racing success. The bikes were fantastic pieces: trellis frames, air-cooled desmo twins, Brembo hardware on both ends and Marzocchi suspension components. But with demand way down, Ducati simply did not import many – making these rare models to find today.

This auction is current right now. The opening bid is set at $12,000, with no takers as of yet. The starting price seems a bit steep for a non-Montjuich model (which had higher performance and upgraded componentry), but this is indeed a relatively rare model and a significant piece of Ducati history. This is a no reserve auction, so the higher starting price is somewhat understandable. With a claimed 600 miles on the clock, this looks to be a relatively well preserved model ready to be ridden by its new owner.
