The Ducati 750GT was the first of Ducati’s venerable V-twins, and its lovely lines set the stage for classics like the 750 Sport and 900SS. This is a custom build that is meant to evoke the prototype that started a legend.

Ducati 750GT Custom - Original Prototype

The 748cc twin produced 60 horsepower, which was good enough to push the 407 pound (dry) bike up to 125 miles per hour. Original MSRP was $1,995. Want to learn more? Check out a lengthy write-up here on Motorcycle Classics about what makes the 750GT special.

This specific Ducati 750GT custom has 21,150 miles and received extensive work to make it look like this. Work includes a rebuilt engine with lighter valves, short skirt sport pistons, Carillo rods, 36mm cards, and more. Outside of the engine, this bike has a Grimeca 4LS front brake, Borrani rims, Bitubo adjustable shocks, rechromed Conti exhaust, custom side covers and decals to look like the prototype, and period Aprilia switch gear. The one flaw seems to be that the rear brake switch does not work.
