This is a 1973
production year of which only 746 were produced - see Ian
Falloon's excellent book - “The Ducati 750 Bible, pages 74-75”
on VIN numbers. “The 1973 750 Sport was a very elemental
motorcycle, the lightest of all the 750s and totally
uncompromised.” Page 76. I can attest to this statement as it is
a no frills, takes no prisoners and is raw & visceral
this 1974 titled Ducati 750 Sport since March of 2007. It is in
beautiful and extraordinary condition with 12,019 kilometers on
the clock! I have the history of the bike from December 1995. A
gentleman in Massachusetts purchased it December 1995 and later
sold it in May 2004 to another gentleman in Massachusetts. He
kept it until I purchased the bike in March 2007. The bike has
only covered 591 kilometers (366 miles) since December 1995. The
bike sits in the garage, covered up and only ridden a few miles
each summer. It has always started on the first or second kick
even after not being ridden for months. I have photocopies of
the previous titles listing names, dates and odometer
statements, which may be inspected and are included with the
Veglia instruments with only 12,019 Kilometers (7,451 miles).

As you can see
from the pictures, there are two gas tanks. The one on the
ground plus 4 additional pictures is the original fiberglass
tank. Due to ethanol mandated by Colorado, I never put gas into
that tank. Other than a slight lifting of the decal (see photo),
it is in excellent condition. It’s been stored in my office
since I took ownership.
The tank that
is on the bike is a reproduction. I purchased that tank from a
well-known Ducati specialist (name not disclosed but receipt is
included) that was supposed to be ethanol resistant.
Additionally, Caswell coating was used but the ethanol gas still
affected the tank. It has bubbled on the side but is fully
serviceable for everyday ridding – there are no leaks or seeping
Rear wheel is
unmarked so there are no “Borrani” stampings. That is the way I
received the bike and I have no clarity on whether this is the
original or not.
are old with plenty of tread and no cracks. However, the tires
are hard and for safety reasons, you may want to consider
replacing them if you plan on riding it any distance. For static
display or occasional short rides, they are perfectly fine.
Rear shocks –
the bike was delivered (to me) with Koni shocks, which were
tired, and in need of replacement. I purchased a brand new set
of IKONS. The Koni’s are included in the sale of the bike – see
Parts – there
are a few additional parts which are included in the sale. They
include the two plastic velocity stacks, an exhaust wrench, and
2 used Koni shocks. (See photo section). There are additional
bits and pieces but not material to the sale.
