The Ducati 900 Mike Hailwood Replica was introduced in 1979 to celebrate Hailwood’s Isle of Man TT win in ’78. Based on the standard 900SS this factory produced limited edition ran until 1985 and proved so popular that some 7000 units were produced. During this time the bikes evolved into different series with the modifications being largely cosmetic, but the early series 1 examples such as this with the one piece faring have proved to be the most collectable.
Registered 25th August 1980 this bike has had 4 former keepers, the last acquired the bike in 1997 at which time it had covered aprox. 11,500 miles. Over the next few years he restored the bike using it only on good days and as such it shows 15,195 now. It’s current condition can only be described as excellent, a beautifully presented example it goes as well as it looks, the engine in great running order, sounding the only way a bevel drive Ducati V Twin can sound through its original Conti exhausts. This really is a fine example and a must for any serious collector. It is supplied with the UK V5C logbook and MoT until May 2015.
