    Very pretty '75. Do you have a long history with it?

    I got it from a friend of mine about 12 or so years ago. I traded him a MH900e for it. He found it in Iran and brought it to the US. I have the original invoice from Ducati to the buyer in Iran. It had water damage in the front cylinder and some scratches on the bodywork. Apparently the original buyer piled it into the side of a trailer, or so the story goes. It only has a couple hundred KMs on it.

    I was gonna restore it myself but never found the time, so I broke down and gave it to a very good restoration guy I know. He did it in a few months and I just picked it up from him a week ago. He did an incredible job. Haven't had a chance to ride it yet and this weekend it is going to rain...

    No, you definitely don't want a soggy old bevel dripping on your dinning room floor. Glad to hear it's a rider. Have fun with it.

    Bill---For years every winter I put two Corse's and my street Corse in the house-- great to look at on a winter morning.--In the spring they were moved out of the house and used on the street and on the track. So art and riders--- So there can be a middle ground.

    95, first year, in the US anyways. One of the early ones that were made in Varese at the Cagiva factory. A lot more attention went into the Varese bikes, such as ported intake tracts. I got it new, September 3rd, 1994. First Ducati I owned.
