No Reserve: 1987 Ducati F1 750

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

This 1987 Ducati 750 F1 is a road-going derivative of the brand’s 750cc Formula 1 motorcycle of a few years prior, and is the final Ducati superbike to be designed prior to takeover by Cagiva in 1985. This example reportedly moved from California to Washington in 2010, and joined the current owner’s collection in 2013. Power is provided by a 750cc Taglioini V-twin with desmodromic valve drive which is coupled with a 5-speed transmission. The bike has been off the road for seven years and in preparation for sale the seller replaced the battery. This Ducati is offered by the selling dealer on behalf of the current owner at no reserve with a clean Washington title.

Development of the 750 F1 began with the 600 TT2 Formula 2 bike of the early 1980s, which evolved into the 750cc Formula 1 bike in 1982, and ultimately into the road-going 750 F1 for the 1985 model year. The bike had a dry weight of just under 390 pounds, and the bodywork on this example is finished in a tricolor scheme over a red steel trellis frame. The seller notes hairline cracks around the Dzus fasteners, and plastic-welded repairs around the rear turn signal extensions.
