1973 Ducati 750 Sport

In Italy, Sport by AbhiLeave a Comment

A highlight of Ducati’s historical lineup, the 70s 750 Sport was a primary inspiration for the ahead-of-its-time 2006-2010 Sport Classic 1000 line up. Here’s one that’s been on display for years and has been recently serviced so it’s ready to ride.

Ducati released the 750 GT at the 1970 Paris Salon, but sales weren’t great. Fabio Taglioni decided to make a sportier version, revealing the 750 Sport at the Salon of Holidays in Tornio in November of ’72. Before Ducati would begin deliveries in mid-late April, Paul Smart would pilot a Desmo 750 to victory at the 1972 200 Miles of Imola – something that started a wave of demand for fast Ducatis and cementing the 750’s place in motorcycle history.

This example (VIN: 753019) has just under 9,000 miles and it’s offered with a Texas title. The seller (Big D Cycle) states that this Ducati was on display in a collection for years and has been serviced (including a carb clean). The “seat, sidecovers, and fenders are factory gelcoat/paint”, though it appears that the tank has been repainted. Modificatiosn include dual front brakes with AP Lockheed calipers and Conti mufflers.
