EDITOR TERLICK SAYS: What a wonderful piece of machinery. Ducati’s long, colourful and successful history as a manufacturer of L-twin sports bikes started with the 750 Sport. It’s predecessor was the 750GT, a grand tourer which carried Ducati’s first twin-cylinder engine and was a sporty highway bike, and it’s successor was the 750 Desmo SuperSport, nowadays generally referred to as the “green-frame” and the most collectible Ducati of them all. Ducati actually sold the Sport and the SuperSport alongside one another for a year or two, with the SuperSport offering some higher spec componentry and a higher price tag. Being a 1974, this glorious bike of Rob’s will have been one of those bikes —  and very rare too, because the Sport was not a big seller; the SuperSport was the model that everyone wanted! Today, the green frames are so valuable that most have become revered museum items. Few people dare ride them, for fear of damaging such valuable merchandise. That leaves the 750 Sport as a very desirable beast indeed – a truly wonderful high-performance superbly balanced vintage sports bike whose price hasn’t precluded it from actually being ridden. And even if you ignore all of that, it’s just absolutely beautiful. Roaring art. Love it. Oh for a Lotto win!
