Marianna Gran Sport (2nd Series) Ducati For Sale

Single overhead cam Marianna Gran Sport, ex Jack Silverman collection bike and restored by his team at his Colorado museum. The late Jack Silverman was a prolific collector of bikes with a focus on Ducati, he found and restored many rare race bikes. These were the first race bikes built by Ducati, first series was 100cc, this is a second series with 125 cc.

Original Amadoro magnesium brakes/hubs with original 17" WM1 alloy rims and special Baroni 34.9mm forks.

Special 22.5 Dellorto SS1 sand cast carb (not die cast like road bike series).

All electrics and full original lighting kit fitted including generator.

I have the NOVA certificate and import duty paid confirmation so could be registered and run on the road if you are in the UK.

The restoration is very high quality with excellent paint and chrome, but also built to be used and not just hung on a wall, would be a great entry for any Moto Giro type classic event, or even a Sunday morning blast.

The bike was displayed on the Official Ducati display stand at Laguna Seca racetrack in the US.

The frame has the GS numbers but also other numbers similar to the road bike series, I have no information whether these were added for registration or for race entry reasons or indeed a replacement frame. The frame is however identical to a Grand Sport model and does have the correct swingarm, 2 position top shock mounts, characteristic and original "S" bend in rear engine mount tube and the wide rear engine mounts, unlike the narrow road bikes as crankcases are much wider on these Gran Sports. These frames are also very light in order to make the most of the 125 performance.

The tank has been remade in aluminium and seems to have been signed by Giuliano Maoggi, winner of the 1956 MotoGiro Di Italia, please see the following link:

There are race plates with the bike carrying Maoggi's race number, however this is not the Maoggi 1957 race wining bike.

Happy to assist with shipping, bike is in the UK.

Asking 15,950.00
