Released in 1987, the Ducati 851 was a technological leap forward that made Ducati relevant in racing again. Here’s an example that’s spent some time as a vintage road racer, but it’s now street legal again for you to enjoy wherever you please.
This bike (VIN: ZDM1HB6R1MB002241) has about 6,300 miles and is claimed to be in excellent condition. Though the speedometer is currently not working and the front brake light switch has to be connected, the bike was brought back to life by the seller after it sat for a few years. The seller turned it into a vintage road racer – Ferraci race chip, restored gas tank, RaceTech upgraded forks, Sharkskinz solo seat, and more. After a couple of track days it was put on the street, and it looks good. Other extras include Woodcraft clipons, Spark exhaust, Gustaffson windscreen, the clutch plates from a 998, and more – all the original parts are included.
