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.

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.
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.
were a total of 200 Montjuichs produced.
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
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.
