Well Presented: 1983 Ducati 900SS Mike Hailwood Replica

There is nothing quite like finding a rare and totally collection-worthy bike to post for RSBFS. This is made all the better when the seller actually takes the time to give a detailed account of the bike in question – in both words and photos. This is one such example which I think readers will enjoy. Originally released in 1979 as a commemoration of Mike Hailwood’s miracle win at the Isle of Man TT in 1978, the MHR would play to the tune of an estimated 7,000 units before production was shut down in early 1986. This beautiful 900SS Mike Hailwood Replica is the last and the best of the bevel-drive Ducatis of the era, and a wonderful collector piece. Read on!

From the seller:
1983 Ducati 900 Desmo Mike Hailwood Replica
Frame Number: 900R1 906468
Engine Number: 905728
905 Original Miles
DGM Homologation Number: 51147OM
Production: 687 MHR Electric Start Machines

When the great road racer Mike Hailwood came out of semi-retirement at the age of 38 to win the 1978 Isle of Man Formula One race on an NCR Ducati, Ducati was presented with another opportunity to market a race replica. Although it was more than 12 months before a production Mike Hailwood Replica appeared, when it did so, it was basically a cosmetic alteration of a 900 Super Sport. But the MHR had a certain appeal. It was very distinctive machine and was destined to become Ducati’s most popular model in the early 1980s.

More from the seller:
Everything on this motorcycle is original, with exception of the tires. The paint, finishes, and chrome are totally original, as is the seat, with all of the factory stitching intact.

As you can see from the photos in the photo section as well as the body of the description, the machine has had absolutely no restoration performed to any part of it. The condition is exactly what it looks like in the photos.

The fairings have no cracks or damage and have had no paint work. The bike has never been in any type of accident or been dropped at any time.

More from the seller:
The Hailwood runs and rides the way you expect a machine with this type of mileage to run. All of the mechanical components have been checked over to ensure they work properly including the clutch and brakes. The carburetors have also been re-built and function perfectly.

If you’d like any additional photos of any particular part of the motorcycle, please let me know. I’m happy to email or text it to you. And if you would like to inspect the bike or ask any questions, please email or contact me by phone or text at 630-430-3855 anytime.

I have a motorcycle collection made up of Italian, American, German, and Japanese big bore motorcycles some of which I will be selling soon. If you have specific questions, just want to learn more, or are looking for something in particular, please let me know. I’m also always looking for other vintage motorcycles to add to my collection, so if you have something interesting to share, please contact me at 630-430-3855.

This bike is looking pretty nice for going on 36 years – and the design has certainly held up well. The bodywork looks to be in better than fair condition, and there are no wild mods or other tomfoolery going on here. There are fewer than 1,000 miles on the Nippon Denso speedo / odo (yes, that was a stock item on this Italian steed), and as a result damage is not really to be found in the photos. Speaking of photos, there are a ton of pics to drool over (even more in the advert), and they all pop with the vivid red color of the frame and fairing. There appears to be some oil or other fluid staining on the right side swing arm, but other than that everything looks as it should. This is a beautiful bevel, and if historic prices are correct, should fetch many times over the current bid of $6k. There is a reserve in place, so this one will be a fun one to watch. Check it out here, and let your inner bevel geek fly. Good Luck!!

Featured Listing: 1985 Ducati Mike Hailwood Replica

Update 8.1.2019: Joe has renewed his Featured Listings. Check out all of Joe’s bikes for sale on RSBFS! Many thanks for choosing us to help move your collection! -dc

In 1978 Mike Hailwood won the Isle of Man TT riding a Ducati. This was 11 years after his last motorcycle race, the previous period during which he was firmly on the Honda payroll. Everything about the event spelled disaster – an old timer long past his glory years on a make of bike nobody really associated him with – and nobody believed he would be competitive. But this was the stuff of heroes; and heroes always win. Hailwood went on to win what can only be considered the comeback of the century. This cemented the legend of Mike “the Bike” Hailwood’s connection with Ducati, and provided for some wonderful bikes. Today’s Featured Listing – a 1985 Ducati MHR – is one such factory offering that celebrated the success of Mike Hailwood.

The Ducati MHR is a bike built in the tradition of homage; it was built to celebrate the famous TT win. But given that the TT was for street-based machinery, the factory replica was not simply a graphics package. Yes, Hailwood won in 1978. Yes, the Pantah (which introduced the next generation belt-driven cams vs. bevel-driven) was introduced way back in 1980. Then why, you might ask, was a MHR being built in 1985 and based on the older hardware? The answer is that Ducati, still a relatively small company, focused on bevel drive for the big bikes (750 – 1000cc), while the Pantah was initially offered in 600cc and below variants. The bevel-drive motors were still very much in the forefront during this time, even though they may seem slightly archaic today. So the MHR is based on the “square case” 900SS of the day – which was a capable machine in its own right. But why still offer a homage bike in 1985 when Hailwood won the TT back in 1978? Simple: the public demanded it. While the MHR was a very limited edition, it was a tremendously successful marketing effort and a strong model for Ducati. Today’s seller has some good details about this bike, so I will let him take it over from here:

From the seller:
1985 Ducati Hailwood Replica

You should know that I am a serious collector, with a large motorcycle collection. I decided to sell some of the most valuable motorcycles in the collection. These motorcycles represent some of the most iconic motorcycles of the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s. Those motorcycles are now being offered up for sale one by one. These motorcycles were targeted by me for my collection many years ago when the best of the best were available and that is what I purchased.

In general, I do believe super rare Italian motorcycle of the 1970s and 1980s are the future Ferrari of motorcycle collecting. We all know what has happened to Ferrari.

More from the seller:
The Ducati Hailwood Millie shown here was made in two series. The first one being a short fairing and only 900 cc with a kick starter and this model, the Hailwood Millie (1000 cc) with the electric starter and the large fairing; one is one of the most beautifully designed fairings ever. It is a big bike not meant for the meek. Of course, it has the electric starter and exhaust note that will thrill any motorcycle enthusiast. It is in absolutely near perfect condition. It is always on a trickle charger and ready to give you a thrill of a lifetime as you wind through the gears and open it up on an open road. This is another Italian bike that, in our opinion, can be classified as the Ferrari of bikes of the future.

This is certainly a bike for the serious collectors. For those that don’t know all the details, the internet is just loaded with information. I can only suggest that you scrutinize the pictures and decide for yourself if this is another rare Italian collector bike that will eventually become as iconic as a Ferrari. Ten years ago, I spent a long time looking for the best Hailwood Millie and believe me this was the beat of the best, hands down.

Prefer phone calls 847-774-4857. Thanks for looking at one of the best!

These second generation MHR machines are truly beautiful motorcycles. Whereas the original offering utilizes a fiberglass cover over a stock SS tank, the latter bikes use a tank that is unique to the model. The rest of the bodywork is all MHE, evoking the spirit (and the livery) of the racer. And while the underpinnings are SS items, some performance items such as the Conti exhausts are model specific. The solo seat is a non-race item; in reality it is a rear pillion cover, making this a two-seater and enhancing the usefulness of the bike. But people who lust after a MHR are not concerned with practicality – they want the booming V-twin soundtrack and the waves of torque that have made Ducati victorious and famous. You may not be able to ride with the effortless agility of Mike Hailwood, but you can still rock the livery and the sound while paying homage to the great man with this stunning 1985 Ducati Mike Hailwood Replica. Interested parties should give Joe a call at 847-774-4857. Good Luck!!

Dusty deal? 1982 Ducati MHR900

Collectable motorcycles – especially those from the late 1970s through 1980s – are on the rise. Values have been notching up to the point where many of us can remember when “…you could buy one for (insert paltry sum here)…” This is true of practically any desirable bike in recent memory; for every bike there is a bubble developing. This certainly holds for memorable Ducati models – on the ropes in the late 70s & early 80s, Ducati fought back with a replica model dripping with nostalgia. Hopelessly outgunned by the technology of the Japanese, the 1982 Ducati Mike Hailwood Replica recalled a more successful time for the Bologna factory (specifically, the Isle of Man TT win in ’78), and traded outright performance for repli-racer glorly. Today these are 5 figure collector models with a strong following.

1982 Ducati MHR900 for sale on eBay

Essentially an offshoot of the 900 Super Sport of the day, the air-cooled twin utilized a bevel drive to actuate the two-valve desmo heads. Claimed power was a reasonable 64 HP, which was decent in the day. Today this is a laughable sum achievable by entry level cycles, but there is nothing that can compete with the onslaught of time and tech. The pros of power delivery included usable torque throughout the rev range, and a very narrow profile. This was capitalized by the straight section trellis frame, enabling confident handling and impressive lean angles. Improved Marzocchi suspension and upgraded brakes elevated the original MHR from the standard SS. Additional chassi details included magnesium wheels and a model specific fuel tank feeding 40mm Dell’Ortos. Bespoke Conti mufflers completed the visual effect.

By 1982, the differences between the 900SS and the MHR shrunk down to all but bodywork and graphics. Magnesium wheels were replaced by more durable aluminum units. The model-specific gas tank survived, as did the larger carbs. But the real difference between the standard SS and the MHR was the bodywork; a large flowing fairing, tight talk section and new side panels all emblazoned with the star power of Mike Hailwood. Depending upon sources, an estimated 7,000 MHRs were built between 1979 and early 1986. Cagiva’s takeover of Ducati in 1985 spelled the end of the bevel twin and the MHR model line.

From the seller:
Here is your chance to buy an extremely rare Ducati that simply does not come up for sale very often. I have owned this bike for over 25 years including back in Australia and brought it to the USA over 15 years ago. I never bothered to title it here as it was in my personal Ducati collection and I rode it very rarely, it had a noisy gearbox bearing on 5th gear so I gave it to a friend who was starting his own European bike repair shop and he was going to take his time and replace the bearing and freshen it up a bit…5 years later I had to take it back in the condition you see it here, I have all the parts safely stored in a plastic tote and it is complete, and the engine covers etc have all been polished. This motorcycle was invited to a special event of hailwoods held at daytona speedway where I got to meet nobby Clarke, Pauline and David hailwood and they all signed my tank, sadly those signatures have all faded but there is pics on the internet somewhere of the meeting and then signing my tank, I also got to ride this bike in the procession lap on the banked track where I got to open her up..I always swore I would never sell this bike and if I don’t get the money I’m asking I doubt I will.this is a matching numbers bike.. I have taken pics of the bike before I cleaned it…it has been in my air conditioned warehouse for the last 10years and will need a good going over, new Tyres etc…cleans up extremely well..

Ducati specs vary greatly within a given model year – partly due to the relaxed attitude of the Italian manufacturer during this time frame, and partly due to the initial destination of the bike in question. For example, US-based bikes came devoid of the Conti pipes due to noise regs (thank you, Mr. EPA). Thus is it not uncommon to find some variances in bikes built in the same year – making collecting a bit more of a challenge. What is stock and original can change from region to region.

This particular seller has committed every sin that RSBFS preaches against when it comes to the advert: Pictures are few and poor, and show a bike that could use a bit of cleaning. Instead of telling us that it “…cleans up extremely well…” it would be of great help to show us – by cleaning it up and *then* taking pictures. Nobody knows what the fiberglass looks like, the condition of the paintwork, etc. It also doesn’t help to see that this is not a running bike – and may not be complete. I won’t even ask why the rear cylinder is missing when the stated issue was a bearing in the tranny (maybe a bevel expert can help us out there). These are all very important items considering the starting bid opens at a cool $22k USD. Now a clean MHR is will definitely top $20k in today’s collector market, but this one feels a bit closer to basket case than concours. I’m not sure the rarity of the model warrants a piecemeal example at this price, and thus far the internet agrees with me at zero bids. Check it out here and share your thoughts. Good luck!!

Ride it like Mike: 1980 Ducati 900 MHR

The history of Ducati racing is long and storied. And while many riders have tasted success on the booming twins from Bologna, perhaps none have matched the exploits of Mike “The Bike” Hailwood. In honor of their legendary rider and his comeback success in the 1978 TT (Tourist Trophy), Ducati created the 900 MHR (Mike Hailwood replica) in 1979 – and continued the model through the mid 1980s. Meant to replicate the racer, the 900 MHR edition had everything it needed to go fast, and nothing else. As a prime example of weight savings, Ducati omitted the electric starter and went with the lighter, old-school method of kick starting. Given the TT background, the occasional bump start would likely also be OK.

1980 Ducati 900 MHR for sale on eBay

The MHR series of bikes was the last major evolution of the bevel drive desmo twin before the introduction of the “rubber band” Pantah. It exudes all of the wonderful charismatic noises and idiosyncrasies of these early Ducatis, while offering up a rare and unique ownership experience. These bikes are not exactly plentiful as far as this era of Ducati goes, as Ducati were simply not moving many bikes period. Nor are they particularly powerful; Ducati rated the L-twin desmo at a mere 72 horsepower back in 1980. That is not a lot by today’s standards, nor was it a lot by the Japanese four-cylinder standards of the early 1980s. What the Ducati did have to offer was torque – significant amounts of lower RPM grunt, fed through a dry clutch and 5-speed gearbox. Easier to ride fast through changing conditions than the hyper-strung Japanese multis, it’s no wonder that Ducati dominated the TT (Mike Hailwood might have had something to do with that as well).

From the seller:
Ducati 900 SS MHR original 13700 KM (8600mile).
Motorcycle not Mint condition, Very good Running !.
Has crack original screen.
chips and scratch on original paint.
some surface rust.
Brake good working.
Electric works,
Please see more picture for detail.
Kick only Model.
Very rare to find Vintage Bevel Desmo Twin.

The seller has offered some good pictures on this bike, but not too much by way of information. One little bit of info that is definitely missing is the whereabouts of the factory lowers and side panels. The MHR model came with a full envelope of fiberglass, yet this bike is only listed with the upper fairing and windscreen. I do not believe the original lowers are still available from the factory, meaning that 3rd party lowers would need to be sourced to truly complete the bike. Otherwise, this Southern California-based machine looks to be in pretty good condition for a 37 year old import.

We have seen Ducati prices fluctuate wildly over the years on RSBFS. This bike has been bid to up over $13,000 USD and it looks like it will sell. It would be well-bought at the current figure, but I would expect it to go up as we get closer to the close of auction. We have seen these models listed for double this amount in years past – albeit in more complete condition. Fun Fact: These Mike Hailwood Replica machines are not exactly the Holy Grail of rarity when it comes to Ducatis; and estimated 7,000 MHRs were built between 1979 and 1986, making the MHR model the the most numerous of all the bevel-drive twin models made. Still, owning a Ducati from this period does place you in an exclusive group. It is a fantastic looking machine, and likely to fare well in the future. And it is eminently enjoyable today as something you can ride. What more can you ask for? Check it out here, and let us know what you think!

Terrific, Tiny-Tanked Terblanche TT Tribute: 2001 Ducati MH900e for Sale

2001 Ducati MH900e R Side

With all the flack Pierre Terblanche gets for his futuristic restyle of the Superbike line, it’s easy to forget just why Ducati gave him a job in the first place. And while the 999 is finally beginning to be recognized for the design classic it is, bikes like his Supermono and today’s Ducati MH900e are there to remind us that, although his designs can be shocking at times, when he gets it right, he gets it really right. Unlike modern cars [I’m looking at you, BMW and Mercedes…], the bike’s alpha-numeric name has a very clear story to tell: “MH” stands for “Mike Hailwood,” rider of motorcycles and unlikely winner of the 1978 Isle of Man TT on a Ducati. That win inspired the original Mike Hailwood Replica which in turn inspired this bike. The “900” refers to the L-twin’s displacement, and the “e” for “Evoluzione.”

2001 Ducati MH900e R Side Front

Just 2,000 bikes were built. Production was originally planned to be 1,000 in 2000 and another 1,000 in 2001, but delays meant that bikes were actually built in 2001 and 2002. Originally, construction was contracted out to Bimota, but a little hiccup known as “bankruptcy” prevented them from being able to complete the work…

2001 Ducati MH900e R Side Engine

The MH900e could be accused of being overstyled a bit, but that bodywork is meant to evoke NCR-prepped racebikes that Mike Hailwood would have ridden and that tail section and tank appear strongly Pantah-influenced. The half-fairing shows off the engine, and that tubular swingarm may be my favorite feature of the bike. Other than the white-faced Veglia look-alike gauge of course. The graphics harken back to Giugiaro’s 1970s redesign of the company logo which was fortunately more successful than his redesign of the bikes themselves… The MH900e certainly looks faster than it actually is, with around 75hp at the rear wheel from the two-valve, air-cooled motor. But with just over 400lbs dry to push around and quality suspension, it offers up real-world fun and a 130mph top speed.

Besides, performance is hardly the point here. I mean, just look at it!

2001 Ducati MH900e Exhaust

From the original eBay listing: 2001 Ducati MH900e for Sale

Better than perfect 2001 Ducati MH900 Evoluzione. This Mike Hailwood tribute bike has only 1063 miles on it. Only ridden to keep it fresh. Numbered #0279 of only 2000 manufactured. Period correct modifications – Very, very rare full Ohlins setup, CycleWorks 4.6 gallon tank, hidden battery, polished valve and belt covers, open dry clutch, relocated oil cooler, custom exhaust that sounds amazing, new Michelin Pilot tires, recent serviced and tuned by Trevor Dunne of Santa Barbara Ducati. Most period correct aftermarket parts are mostly unattainable. Have some extra parts, and wheel stand.  Also have tribute plaque. 

In spite of the wild looks, these are surprisingly competent road bikes with excellent, user-friendly handling, a killer midrange, and the usual Ducati soundtrack, although it’s pretty muted through the stock exhaust system. Just the hideously limited fuel range and modest power limit the fun. Actual gas mileage is pretty decent, but the fuel cell holds just 2.2 gallons: most of that expansive-looking “tank” is taken up by an airbox.

2001 Ducati MH900e Dash

Although I think the MH900e is probably a bit too attention-grabbing and the ergonomics too radical for a daily rider, that’s okay: these are often display pieces and ridden only rarely. Which is also okay, since these are not practical motorcycles: the fuel tank is shockingly small and the seat is very high off the ground… Unless you’re over six feet tall, expect to be rolling this one around on your tippie-toes. The seller mentions a CA Cycleworks fuel tank, which would be a very nice upgrade and allow the bike to be ridden to places with more than 100 miles between gas stations…

With the Cycleworks tank, you’re looking at a realistic 200 mile range, not including a reserve, meaning this becomes a viable motorcycle. Assuming of course that you won’t mind answering a lot of questions wherever you go.

Hail Hail: 1983 Ducati Mike Hailwood (MHR) in AZ

Joey Dunlop, Agostini, Fast Freddy Spencer, Wayne Rainey, Mike Hailwood, and Valentino Rossi, all have had legendary careers in motorcycle racing.   But only a very few were able to endure over multiple decades, and even fewer managed to do it with a break in-between.   Seriously, to take a multi-year break from racing and then return is impressive in itself, but to come back and win a major race is the stuff legends are made of.

Mike Hailwood was one of the few who managed this feat.  Mike “The Bike” Hailwood won the Isle of Mann TT race 12 times including what many historians consider to be the most dramatic Isle of Man race of all time, the 1967 Senior TT against his great rival, Giacomo Agostini.  In 1978 Hailwood returned to motorcycle racing after an 11 year hiatus and won the legendary isle of Man TT again, this time on a Ducati.  A few years later, Ducati produced the 900MHR to commemorate the event and the bike was an instant hit.

1983 Ducati 900ss Mike Hailwood Replica for sale on eBay

From a production numbers standpoint, the Hailwood replica is actually not that rare (see production info here) but it still always seems to draw interest from avid motorcycle fans.   The seller indicates that this is bike was previously in Japan and that the bike has the optional factory big cams and Conti pipes. The seller also lists lots of recent refreshes including:

  • new Pirellis front and rear
  • new brakes
  • new cush drives
  • new battery hold down, tank hold down, battery tray.
  • New rebuild on the rear master cylinder.
  • New fuel lines (correct green) and clamps.
  • New alternator harness.
  • New steering head bearings.
  • New turn signals.
  • Petcocks reworked.
  • Carbs looked over at Ducati Phoenix (the carbs were rebuilt by the Woods Bros in Cal in an earlier workup).
  • EFX clipons installed. but have original ones.

The seller includes both standard and hi-res photos as well as a link to a video walk around in the auction.  This particular MHR certainly appears to be in immaculate condition.

While bidding on this one has been minimal at this point (the reserve is still in place), the current price is right at the KBB retail limit.  Past MHRs featured by RSBFS have been bid up over $15,000 so I think this one will get a bunch of last minute bids.

Be like Mike: 1985 Ducati 900 Supersport Mike Hailwood Replica

MHR_1

One look at the paint, and you *know* this is a Mike Hailwood replica model. A quick glance at the odometer shows a mere 1,477 miles (which may or may not be accurate). The rest of this one requires careful study. Try not to get drool on the monitor.

MHR_4

Purportedly the subject of a $10k restoration, this bike looks brand new. But then again with so few miles, isn’t that what you might expect? The Hailwood models have risen in value over the years, but the ask on this one is a new high. What you are looking at may very well be one of the cleanest MHR examples in existence; and you will pay for that.

MHR_21

From the seller:
The photos — taken fresh on June 29 2013 — show the exceptional quality of this Hailwood Mille. Although the odometer shows 1477 miles (or 2363 kilometers,) because I am not the original owner, I cannot verify the original mileage.

This was a ‘barn find,’ or more accurately, a storage unit find, low mileage but ignored for a few years. Because I value exceptional quality motorcycles, I hired David Harris, a motorcycle restorer extraordinaire (more an artist in metal and mechanicals) in Point Arena, California, with instructions to restore this mechanically and cosmetically to museum quality. Apart from oil change and carb cleaning, the mechanicals are so low mileage and excellent they needed nothing (new battery, tires, chain.) Cosmetically, the way David put it last summer (20 miles ago,) this Hailwood would have taken best in class at the Quail Lodge motorcycle gathering. Dave shows some of his motorcycles there each year, and if I didn’t live so far away from Carmel, I would’ve have honored Dave’s request to show the Mille this year at Quail.

This was a frame off restoration — frame, wheels, paint, decals. No expense was spared, to the tune of $10,000 on top of what I paid for the motorcycle.

MHR_9

Some neat details on this MHR includes a glass-windowed bevel drive cover. If you’ve ever wondered how a bevel works, power is transmitted from the bottom end up to the top of the cylinder via a jackshaft. These gears mate at a 90 degree angle, transfering the power horizontally and spinning the desmodromic cams. The system works well, but was replaced in later years by toothed rubber belts which were easier to manufacture and assemble.

More from the seller:
I am selling it because of life changes that include too much travel for family and work, and not enough time to ride and maintain the large motorcycle stable. I currently own 27 motorcycles, all of them picked carefully for quality. I worked for a couple of national motorcycle magazines years ago, so motorcycles have always been a passion, not just a hobby.

MHR_10

This bike was clearly someone’s passion – given how clean it appears it would almost (note that I said *almost*) a shame to ride it. But whether you ride it or park it as 3D artwork, it’s gonna cost you. This bike is on the block for $22,500. The seller is willing to consider offers, though, so there might be hope if you are close. Click the link to jump over to the listing. Good Luck!

Own a Legendary Rider’s Replica – Ducati 900 MHR (Switzerland)

Red and green was the color of Mike Hailwood’s historic TT comeback with Ducati’s L 2 cylinder air cooled racer in 1978:

image.do

To pay tribute to him, Ducati built a series of race replica bikes designated with the “MHR” = “Mike Hailwood Replica” badge. Last in series, was this 1987 model.

ducati-mhr-900-mike-hailwood-900-ss

With less than 20.000 km, this 17.700 $ dollar bike is worth the mention because of its complete stock conditions. With its red color, black front mudguard, gold rims, round headlight and full fairing, this is a proper a race replica style of the 80s.

502056455_4_Big

As the seller describes, not only it comes with the original exhaust, air intake filter etc, but it also includes the original booklet and service history and it’s factory toolbox in the blue (at the time) Ducati bag. These might seem details but for a 30 year old bike they are not. The overall condition looks top from what we can judge by these pictures.

502056455_2_Big

From the seller:

 

Last series Ducati Mike Hailwood 900, excellent condition for an almost 30 year old bike, only 19690 km run from new.

Tested new in August last year. Completely original as delivered, including the original air filter and exhaust.

Always garaged and well maintained. Starts immediatelyat the touch of a button and runs smooths after about one minute on choke. Blombe originals still exist under the engine, original driver’s manual and tool kit in the blue bag Ducati.

More pictures on request. The Ducati can be visited in Basel.
