Here is a completely original 1974 Ducati 750GT. This GT had
sat in a Colorado warehouse since 1975, until 3 years ago,
when it went up for auction. Has not been ridden since 1975,
and shows 2,353 miles on its original OD.

This bike went for $16,000 at auction. That figure did not
include the 10% auction fee, or the shipping on it.
