Hi all,
my name is Sergio and i'm from Genua, north west Italy.
I have been a Paso 750 owner in late 80's, but sadly i had to split from her. Now i found one, and i bought her. I'm waitng for her to come to my home by courreer. She is from Imola, legendary town with one of the most wonderful racetracks. In Italy, years ago, we were used to put two letters on the register tab, meaning the town where the bike was licensed, and this bike has BO written on it, that means Bologna, the Ducati factory hometown.
She looks great to me, in a very good shape and condition. All original. Can't wait to hug and cuddle her.
Btw, i made a few pics, to introduce her.

Ciao Sergio,

welcome to the forum. That`s a nice looking bike and also comes with the rare race only exhaust cans.
I hope the bike is as good as it looks when it arrives. Have fun !

A couple of additional mufflers and headers come with the bike. I think they are the street legal ones. How did you ricognize the race ones?

Ciao
Sergio

this is the "race only"

and this is the standard

just compare the exit diameter.

I think the standard muffler also doesn`t have that much text stamped on it, but I may be wrong.

Best looker of the series is 750 I think. I returned to Ducati with one about 15 years ago.

Hello from Essex UK.

Cheers, Keith.

G'day Sergio,

Welcome to the forum.

That's a really tidy example, you've done well :thumbup:
The GT tyres you have are quite soft so they stick real well...but they wear fast :(

Good idea to have had the mirrors/indicators removed for transport....they are getting very hard to find now!

Enjoy her...as she consumes your days :mrgreen:

Thank you so much from the other side of the world.
Really happy for now.
I'm moving the discussion about my purchase on Paso 750 forum, and i'm planning to bother you all with a sort of rebuilding, or better a refresh, if needed, as long as we are going stright to the winter season here. Not cold where i live, but anyway shorter days and may be some rain, suggest me to stay in garage. Holiday time is gone, and i hope to find some time to spend after her.

I apologize in advance for my poor english.

Sergio

Welcome here, also there is a group on Facebook where a lot of Italian is spoken, I am not so good in that. Visit https://www.facebook.com/groups/ducatipasoists/ is you like. You have to show her there too.

Like your quote in your message "Ducati has a hart, Japanese have a chip" very good!
