1974 Ducati 750 GT

This is from the site Bring a Trailer (https://bringatrailer.com/) ...

This 1974 Ducati 750 GT has been with the seller for 35 years and is powered by an air-cooled 750cc V-twin mated to a 5-speed transmission. The bike was recently pulled from storage and had the fuel tank cleaned, oil changed, and brake fluid flushed. The factory turn signals and air box have been removed, and other modifications include dual front disc brakes with drilled rotors, as well as K&N air filters. This 750GT is sold with a matching SS-style sport fairing, the removed parts, and a clean Connecticut title in the seller’s name. Finished in orange over black, bodywork shows a few scratches as well as some peeling on the front fender. Corrosion can be seen on the chrome of the front cylinder tower shaft, the headlight bucket, rear springs, and some of the spokes. Both the side stand and center stand are present and functional. A walk-around video describing some of the issues with the bike has been provided by the seller and can be seen above. The front fender suffered a dent when a water ski dropped on it several years ago. The front brakes have been converted to a dual disc system with drilled rotors. The Borrani shouldered aluminum wheels wear tires that are estimated to be 20 years old and should be replaced. The seller also recommends changing the fork oil. Controls are said to work, including the speedometer and tachometer. The 15,700 indicated miles are believed to be correct, and the seller has personally added about 4,500 over his longterm ownership. The turn signals have been removed, but the headlight, taillight, and brake lights function as intended. Corrosion is visible on the horn button housing. Power comes from a 750cc V-twin coupled with a 5-speed transmission. The engine has never been apart and still wears the lead seal applied at the factory. Considered to be the first of Ducati’s super bikes, the 750 GT was rated at 60 horsepower and good for a reported 125 mph. Factory-supplied Conti pipes show age-related discoloring, and modifications include aftermarket plug wires and dual K&N air filters. Recently the seller changed the oil, flushed the brake fluid, and cleaned the fuel tank. Included with the sale is a color-matched SS-style sport fairing. The original airbox, rear turn signals, front brake caliper, and master cylinder will also be included. A riding video can be seen below.
