1986 750 F1 Montjuich   SOLD   SOLD    SOLD

NOTE: This Montjuich (has been sold) by the current owner.  Bevel Heaven owner Steve Allen will be handling all aspects of this transaction on behalf of the gentleman who owns it.  Steve has known the owner for over a decade. This bike is in very good condition but is not perfect, as this bike has been ridden off & on throughout it's life, not just sitting on display...  It is not a trailer queen.  This fine example of a 750 F1 has a clean California title and current CA registration.  Below is the text that the owner has provided pertaining to this bike.

The 1986 750 F1 Montjuich was one of the most exotic hand-built race replicas ever produced by Ducati. It was named after the Montjuich Park race course near Barcelona, Spain, where Ducati had frequent racing successes, including winning the 1983 24-hour endurance race. Although the Montjuich was based on the 750 F1 road bikes, it engine was extensively revised and far more powerful than that that of the 750 F1, due in part to higher compression, hotter cams, larger inlet ports, and larger carburetors, which are Dell'Orto PHM40N's. The Montjuich engine was rated at 95 hp at 10,000 rpm, whereas the 750 F1 engine was rated between 62 hp and 75 hp at 9,000 rpm.

The Montjuich also incorporated an aluminum swingarm and an aluminum gas tank, and special 16" composite Marvic/Akront wheels of magnesium and aluminum which were much lighter than the wheels of the F1. This and other weight saving measures shaved over 44 pounds in weight from the already light F1, resulting in a dry weight of only 341.4 pounds. The brakes were also significantly upgraded compared to that of the 750 F1; the rear brake disc was fully floating and the front brakes were Brembo racing Gold Series with four piston calipers.

There were a total of 200 Montjuichs produced.

Each Montjuich has an individually numbered plaque on the seat tail section. This bike is number 104.  20 of the 200 bikes were originally sold in the U.S., but those were not street legal due to the very loud Verlicchi competition-only exhaust system and lack of air filtration to the carbs. Therefore, U.S. bikes were sold without turn signals and were stated to be for racing use only. However, this particular bike has turn signals because it was sold new in Japan: the bike was imported by Murayama Motors, the official Ducati importer at the time. The most recent Japanese owner, Makoto Shiotsu from Takamatsu, owns a Ducati sales, service and parts business called "Trestles" (www.trestles.co.jp). During the time Shiotsu owned the Montjuich, he installed a six speed transmission and rebuilt the engine with over-sized pistons and dynamically balanced the crank, all of which make this Montjuich even more potent than it was originally. In original engine specification, a Montjuich could easily exceed 136 mph.

Ian Falloon states that the limited edition series of the 750 F1 bikes are "among the most classic production Ducatis of the 1980's". Mick Walker, in his Illustrated Ducati Buyer's Guide, gives the Montjuich five stars, the highest rating, and recommends that any "lucky" owner "guard it with your life".  This Ducati Montjuich would be a rare and highly desirable addition to any Ducati collection.

It should be noted that this bike won first place in the Superbike category at the 2012 Quail Motorcycle Gathering - the West Coast's most prestigious motorcycle Concours d'Elegance.
