1975 Ducati 750 GT Red R Side

It’s Thanksgiving, but here you are, poking around CSBFS. You couldn’t stay away could you? Bored with rehashing family squabbles, not interested in parades, or afraid you might miss out on your dream bike? Well, if your dream bike happens to be  a ready-to-ride Ducati 750GT in red and black, you’ve come to the right place. Luckily, you can quietly slip back into the living room after you check out the original eBay listing, since there’s still 3 days left on the auction…

1975 Ducati 750 GT Red Dash

As is typical of the era, this 1975 round-case appears to be titled the year after the less-popular square-case redesign was introduced. The Ducati 750 came in SS, Sport, and GT flavors, although it’s worth noting that only the SS came with the famous “Desmodromic” valve actuation. The GT, while the most conservatively styled of the trio, was also the most practical and comfortable of the three for everyday use, and featured higher bars with a more comfortable, dual seat. The SS and Sport both had bum-stop solo seat and clip-ons: great for looks, not so great for middle-aged backs. The kind of backs that are most likely able to afford and appreciate these classics…

The seller then goes on to include a comprehensive list of updates, including a very snazzy set of Ohlins shocks that suit the bike very well, in spite of their modern look. Otherwise, the bike appears very stock, unlike the GT we featured earlier this week. That bike, though not entirely original, was very sharp.  This one is much more traditional, with more subtle paint and patina. Depending on your taste, it’s been a banner week for Ducati fans!
Enjoy your turkey.

Santa? You checking that list? 1973 Ducati 750 GT

HHhhMMmm. Somebody is about to have an excellent holiday.

1973 Ducati 750 GT For Sale on eBay

From the seller:

For sale is my 74 Ducati 750 GT, manufacture date 1973.

The GT has new paint on the tank and side covers. The frame is in the original paint with some blemishes mostly out of sight. The seat is re-upholstered and I had the original silk screen Ducati stitched into the back. The back panel can be easily replaced with a new complete new silk screened section if desired.

Smooth dependable running engine which had the heads built by Woods in California back in the late 1980’s or early 90’s. The speedometer shows 24,5xx miles on it and the GT uses no oil. Runs through the gears fine.

I’ve Por 15 sealed the tank and put in new petcocks and new fuel lines.

Ignition is through Dyna electronic and new dyna coils. Battery is new and the charging system is in good shape.

New replica Dash in fiberglass, which I feel, is better than the original plastic which cracked early on. Also the gauges have new mounting dampers installed and are in good working order with a new speedometer drive. The dash does not have the original switch but has a toggle switch which does the job.

The GT was rewired by my cousin back in the late 80’s and does not use the original Aprilia fuse block. Though I have the original Aprilia fuse block cover in excellent condition. I

The wheels are the correct Borrani and came new on the GT. Tires are like new Michelins with low miles. I put them on new last spring with new inner tubes.

The original Conti exhaust was re-chromed by Brown’s Plating and it is a great job. There are some dents in the right hand Conti and the dings were not pulled when plated because Brown’s did not know whom to recommend to fix the dings. The exhaust polished out perfect but still shows the dings. The head pipes and cross over were also re-chromed. The original Conti inscription is clearly visible and did not diminish in clarity with the re-plating.

The current carburetors are Mikuni flat slide 36mm and the GT runs excellently with them. I also have the Del’Ortos in 32 mm which I’ve rebuilt completely. They seemed to still have a problem at steady throttle on the road and I think it was the enrichment plungers of which I’ve just received a new pair. The enrichment cables and lever are on the handler bars still.  The handle bars are new Super bike bars and they give a good seating position for the bike. Very close to positioning of the original bars.

The brakes are new Brembo master and calipers. They work excellent. I do have the original Scarab caliper but it needs a rebuild.

New steering head bearings and wheel bearings checked out good. New chain and sprocket and other small bits.

There is one small section of a cooling fin missing on the vertical cylinder.

There is a scratch/dent on the front stainless finder which could be fixed and polished out I’m sure. I do not have the original side stand though I am in the process of trying to reproduce a replica one.

You can hear it run!

I think I could put the exhaust note of these older Ducatis on my iPod and listen to them all day. This bike has had a few fixes and replacements so I wouldn’t expect the final price to be at the very top.

I’m speechless.

1974 Ducati 750 GT Round Case

 

 

 

 

 

 

Classic Ducatis show up regularly on this site, and it’s with good reason.   They offer most everything collectors are looking for: exclusivity, pedigree, exotic technology, good looks, and usable performance.

At a glance, it’s pretty easy to assume that Ducati’s bikes from this era are all the same.  If you’re not really into the ins and outs of vintage Ducatis, you may not realize the classic bevel-drive twins can be broadly divided in to “round case” and “square case” bikes, but once you know, the differences are pretty easy to spot.  The earlier round case models, in addition to being rarer, are generally considered more aesthetically pleasing and therefore more valuable.

The 750 GT was reworked in 1974 by Giorgetto Giugiaro into the 860 GT and the restyle included the aforementioned engine cases, which were given a much more angular look to match the new bodywork.  The new bike was not well-received at the time and has only recently begun to be appreciated, possibly because its values compared to the earlier bikes have remained low, making the 860 a more affordable alternative for people looking at bevel-drive ownership.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Regardless, this is likely one of the last round case bikes, since 1974 was the year the square case redesign was introduced.  The 750 came in SS, Sport, and GT flavors, with the GT being the most practical and comfortable of the three for everyday use.  It had higher bars and a more comfortable, dual seat.  The SS and Sport both had bum-stop solo seat and clip-ons.

From the original eBay listing: 1974 Ducati 750 GT Round Case

This is a well maintained machine that starts on the first or second kick, it runs and pulls strong with no mechanical issue and you will not be disappointed.  A few years ago; it has been updated with an electronic ignition –

This Bike Boasts;

      Brand new genuine Contis exhausts

      New seat

      New Paoli air shocks

      New Dunlop Tourmasters which have less than 2000 miles

This GT is so comfortable to ride, and the sound of the Contis dual exhaust is pure music to your ears.

Last fall, prior to storage, we put in a new battery and new Agip synthetic oil. The future owner of this classic should be prepared to answer to quite a few questions wherever it is parked because it is quite an attention getter.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The bike is in Quebec, Canada but this shouldn’t cause too much of a headache for buyers in the States, considering the age of the bike.
