We just received an update from @RAF
, the buyer of the 1975 Ducati 860 GT Mike Hailwood Tribute (link
) that sold on BaT on May 2nd, 2019:
“It’s running great. I’m hoping with the new carbs I can kick start it easier in the mornings.
I picked up the bike in person with a sprinter van in New Orleans and drove to San Diego.
The seller is a great guy and we became instant friends. He has a large collection of vintage cars and bikes. I loved his hot rod early 911 and CITROËN DS. He also had a Ferrari which he listed on BAT but sadly didn’t sell.
He is a great guy and a true enthusiast. He is an architect and you can tell by his toys that this guy has a good taste.
I installed the carburetors and new Pirelli tires.
That’s a picture of the bike at UCSD parking lot where I work. Great daily, the best I have had.”
Nice choice of daily driver! We’re happy to hear that you are enjoying the bike, and that you’ve made a friend in the process! Congratulations on the win, and thanks to @Thomaskoch for listing this neat bike with us.
