Post-Sale Update: After 21 bids on eBay, this Ducati 900 MHR sold for $19,400.

Reader Paul W. has just let me know about his Ducati 900 MHR that’s for sale on eBay, and this beauty is worth sharing. As you may know, the Ducati 900 MHR (Mike Hailwood Replica) was built to commemorate Hailwood’s success in the 1978 Isle of Man TT.

Paul has had quite a motorcycling history, including starting with a Bultaco Metralla – what a first bike! Years ago he just missed out on a Ducati 750 SS, and so when this MHR fell into his lap, he had to snag it up. Now he’s looking for someone who will take care of it and appreciate it.

In Paul’s words:

“This 1983 Ducati 900SS Mike Hailwood Replica is a Japanese edition purchased in Tokyo in 1984 by a US Military worker stationed overseas. Brought back to the US in 1985 it was lightly ridden, even including a little touring from Arizona into Colorado, until in the mid-1990s the owner stored it (along with a Laverda 750 and a Cagiva 650SS Alluzurra) in favor of BMW touring bikes. Last year he decided to let all of his Italian bikes go to new hands.

This is arguably one of the nicest ‘83 Hailwoods on the planet. Tank and bodywork in outstanding shape. Beautiful paint. All bright work looks incredible. New: Pirellis front and rear, new brakes, new cush drives, new battery hold down, tank hold down, battery tray. New rebuild on the rear master cylinder. New fuel lines (correct green) and clamps. New alternator harness. New steering head bearings. New turn signals. Petcocks reworked. Carbs looked over at Ducati Phoenix. The carbs were rebuilt by the Woods Bros in Cal in an earlier workup. Conti pipes. All services just completed. EFX clipons installed. This bike has the optional factory big cams.”
