1973 Ducati 750 GT for Sale

1973 Ducati 750GT L Side Rear

The early “round-case” Ducati twins are among the most usable and collectible classic bikes around and, with SS and Sport models spiraling ever upwards in value, it’s getting harder and harder to find early Ducati twins that don’t require a second mortgage to own.

The iconic 750 “L-Twin” Ducati’s were redesigned in 1974 with a much more angular style that extended to the look of the engine cases.  The restyle was not very well received by many Ducatisti at the time, and the earlier “round-case” models have become more desirable, decades later.

The slightly less valuable GT’s are still rising in value, and their more humane riding position and higher bars may make them that much more appealing to those who can afford them.  And you still get the tower-shaft and gear-driven over head cam twin for which Ducati has long been known and loved.

Chrome and stainless steel parts are in excellent condition, as are the rims. The spokes are stainless steel. Original instruments and panel, speedo reads somewhat high. The exhaust has some dings and scratches, but sounds great. New Contis are available from BevelHeaven.

Steering angle to the left is very restricted to avoid the forks touching the tank. The combination Brembo master and Lockheed caliper results in very short brake lever activation.
