It seems as though there is a never ending supply of Ducati's out there that need my attention. I found a lovely '82 900MHR recently that I just had to have.

She will arrive here by the end of the month and hopefully be on the road in time to enjoy the remaining Spring and Summer months to come.

As a sacrifice, the 750 Katana and the 1150GS BeeEm had to go to make way for the new addition, but I have had my fun with them and it was time anyway.

Some photos (hopefully:-

The tank looks pretty good with only some minor "age" related scratches...very minor
Image

Seat unit too is pretty tidy with only minor issues.
Image

Kick start only on the '82. Engine looks tidy with no discolouration due to oil leaks.
Image

Right side doesnt show any major issues.
Image

Likewise the left is pretty good...save for the decals that will have to be removed...and repainted of course.
Image

Only mods are the inclusion of Ohlins rear shocks and braided brake lines front and rear.

I am reliably informed that this will be my last(?) motorcycle...we cant really fit any more in the garage at the moment. My response. Time for a bigger garage.

Cheers

You can make your own decision on which item to rent :thumbup:
I'm not making the choice for you :fart:

Perhaps I didnt make myself clear Higgy,

The choice was to either keep the MHR or sell it (her), not the wife.

Prices seem to run around 20k this side of the pond :thumbup:
I am sure they are much higher in your neck of the woods :beer: :beer:

Perhaps the flag and the name go "hand in hand" so to speak.
:zip: :zip:

Good examples are in the $25-$30k range here. This one will arrive considerably cheaper than that.

The Bevels have always been my favorite. True works of art. Wish I had kept my 74 GT. Was not a Desmo but still there was always something special with those old designs :thumbup:

A keeper for sure and a great find :beer: :beer: :beer: :beer:
