Bridging the Gap: 1990 Ducati 750 Sport for Sale

1990 Ducati 750 Sport L Side FrontThe Ducati 750 Sport was an interim model introduced in 1988 that followed on the heels of the F1. Ducati owners Cagiva hoped to capture the spirit and style of the vaunted 750SS, but buyers weren’t having it, and the bike was replaced by the long-running 900SS of the early 1990’s. 1990 Ducati 750 Sport R SideThe F1 was relatively expensive to produce and the 750 Sport was a definite attempt to cut costs. Lower-spec suspension, along with brakes and 16” wheels came straight over from the Paso and were a step backwards: by 1990, manufacturers were moving away from the 16” wheels towards 17” and this made it difficult to get the latest and stickiest rubber for serious riding. 1990 Ducati 750 Sport Tank1988 was the first year Ducatis featured the rear cylinder flipped around to locate both intakes in the center of the “vee” and allowed the use of the automotive-style carburetor arrangement that plagued the Paso. This required some revisions to the F1’s frame to accommodate the larger airbox and bulky carburetor. As with the Paso, this set up was not ideal and the conversion to a dual-carb set up as seen on this example is definitely a very desirable modification that should improve both rideability and power. 1990 Ducati 750 Sport CarbsThe bike does have a dry clutch with a vented cover, and it’s interesting to note the earlier location of the clutch slave on the right side of the engine.

Only 153 750 Sports were made in 1990 before the bike was replaced by the heavily revised 900SS the followed and remained in production until 1998.

There’s not all that much information over at the original eBay listing: 1990 Ducati 750 Sport for Sale

 A 1990 Ducati 750 Sport it’s a rare bike  great condition

$6,500 with just a couple days left and no bidders as yet. That’s no surprise, as this really isn’t the most desirable Ducati, but it is very rare and is in excellent condition. Parts should be relatively easy to source and the belt-drive Ducati twin is endlessly tuneable. If you want a relatively modern motorcycle that combines reliability with a more classic look and relative rarity, this might be the Ducati for you.

1974 Ducati 750 Sport For Sale on eBay


quote from seller’s listing:

Up for your consideration is a incredibly original and unrestored 1974 Ducati 750 Sport. It is one of Ducati’s most iconic motorcycles and was designed in an era when the Ducati factory was winning the most prestigious races in the world and making timeless, rare motorcycles for the enthusiast. This motorcycle is a jewel.

The engine number matches the official tag on the head stock and will be provided to the winner of the auction. The line boring numbers also match as expected(192). It has a clean and clear title issued in 1977. This is one of the very special Ducati round-case bevel twins that do not come up for sale in untouched form very often.

Please feel free to ask any questions or if there is an area of the motorcycle that you want more detail I can help.


1974 Ducati 750 Sport (1 of 200 imported to the US)

Numbers matching

3,135 Original miles

Extremely complete, correct and in beautiful original condition. Runs and rides beautifully.


All original bodywork with correct gel coat on fiberglass pieces. (front fender, rear fender, tail and side panels)

Tank showing typical paint condition of an original Ducati of this age. It still retains the original Ducati water transfer decals.

All Chrome is original and in very good condition. (The headlight Bezel was refinished very well and Aprilia numbers still visible)


Starts on first or second kick, no smoke, original points and “Ducati” stamped condensers.

Idles and runs smoothly. An excellent running engine. SOUNDS LIKE A SYMPHONY.

Transmission shifts smoothly through all gears and clutch functions properly.

All lights and switches work. The run/stop switch is reversed. It came like this from the factory.


The only replacement items are the licence plate bracket and the fuel lines.

The Engine still has the original lead seal with the Ducati Logo as it left the factory

Original Ducati Coils and KLG plug boots

Original Alpina painted spokes with correct “A” stampings on both wheels

Original Aprilia Horn Switch

Original Aprilia Fuse box and wiring harness

All bolts appear original and I would say 95% of them have not been turned by a wrench since leaving the factory.

Original Marzocchi shocks

Original Cable splitters, cable connectors, brass valve caps for the tires. (tires are new, vintage Dunlop K81 TT100). The details are incredible and well preserved.

Original Orlandi petcocks

Original Conti Silencers

Original Conti Clamps

Imperfections to Note

Please note the picture of the underside of the rear fender showing a repair done to fix the loose metal tabs that hold the wiring for the rear light. The hooks were fixed and given a thin brushing of resin. It is still clear and transparent so you can see there is no bodywork or cracks. You can still see the original pieces of numbered paper the factory laid in the body work.

Please look at the pictures of the Tank, I tried to show the paint condition and I think the pictures show it accurately. There is the typical mosaic look in the paint that you see on most of the rare original pieces of this era. There are imperfections purely due to age. There is no rust or dents.

1990 Ducati 750 Sport One Owner In Mint Condition With 10,850 Miles

This is a one owner Ducati 750 Sport in mint condition with 10,850 original miles.  Located in Bridgewater, Massachusetts is a 1990 Ducati 750 Sport with 10,850 original miles.  I’ll let the seller–who is the owner’s son-in-law–explain the bikes condition and history:

The bike is SPOTLESS. It really is more of a collectors piece than a daily driver…This Ducati has been PERFECTLY and METICULOUSLY Maintained since it was new. My father-in-law got this bike imported from Italy and, in fact, still has the end of the original shipping crate with all of the factory info and numbers on it!!! The crate end along with all the original manuals, documentation, magazine articles, and tool kit are on hand and will go with the machine. It has NEVER been down and NEVER been abused.  He hasn’t really ridden it that much in several years although he puts just a few miles and fresh gas in it every year to keep it running at its best. It is in driveable ready to go condition. It is in need of nothing. All Paint and Plastic are in perfect condition too. Tires are in excellent shape and it even has a new battery last season.  The bike is currently configured with “DELORTO PHF 36MM Carbs” and K & N Filters. Also, it has Stainless Steel Silencers in like new condition. It has a few other “extras” such as F1 turn Signals and Front and Rear Ventilated Racing Type Clutch Cover from Pro Italia. ALL original factory parts are on hand and in new condition, and will go with the bike, so, if you choose to, you can reconfigure it back to the original specifications.

The 750 Sport features the same motor as the Paso with a frame similar to the 750 F1 but, with a modified front section and the wheels are 16″ front and rear.  The bike features conventional Marzocchi 40mm forks, a Marzocchi swing-arm, a 421lb weight wet and a liquid-cooled L-Twin producing 74.5hp.  This bike isn’t as sought after as the 851 that it shared showrooms with at the same time but, I believe this is a solid collectible from the time that could hold it’s own with the competition.  The asking price is $5,495 which doesn’t sound outlandish given the history, condition, and the prices that the F1’s are going for.  See it on Craigslist here.
