THIS BIKE'S STORY

This 1974 Ducati 750S was purchased from the original owner in Northern California, it was then completely restored to the highest standards by second owner who owns a restoration shop. 

The bike has been in private collection since 2015 and is now Available for sale.

Approximately 30 sports have been in and out of my shop in the last 9 years and this one is one of the finest "restored" bikes I have seen and ridden. When the bike came in, I called the shop owner in california and complemented him on his work. I took a spin down to Red hook.

The 750S was the second 750 twin Ducati put out after it introduced the platform in 1970 with the 750GT.

That first Gran Turismo model was more restrained in its styling, available in either solid red or black, came with upright bars for a comfortable riding position, and a decently sized pillion seat. The 750S got none of that nonsense—bright yellow paint, a humped solo seat and low clip-on handlebars. Minus the passenger peg supports, it does share the same basic chassis as the GT—and that’s a good thing because the super stiff frame is a highlight of the breed.

DISCLAIMER

Every single bike I buy and sell, I personally go through—not someone else. I am the owner operator of my small business, and I take what I do very seriously.  I work on the bikes, I ride the bikes.

If you are serious about buying a true collector piece from someone who not only has a passion for these bikes, but works on them, rides them, and collects them then call me. Jokingly people say to me, “these bikes don’t seem so rare as there are so many in your shop” well... I consider myself a custodian for these machines, they should go to people who will love, and appreciate them.
