1975 Ducati 750 Super Sport
Ducati’s first ever twin cylinder sports bike, the now well-famous 1974 750 Super Sport (Greenframe), has achieved immortality through its stratospheric rise in value and exclusivity of ownership. Sought after by serious motorcycle collectors and shrewd investors alike, Ducati’s first ever Super Sport has recorded sales in excess of $350,000AUD ($240kUSD), largely based upon the model’s limited build number and because it was Ducati’s first race-replica, an uncompromised production race bike, unrestricted or diluted in any way, shape or form, nor did it include anything to satisfy regulatory requirements of the day; a true ‘race bike with lights’, a motto that would become synonymous with Ducati’s highest spec sports bike from 1974 to present day.
Whilst the Greenframe is the holy grail of the Super Sport range, collectors and investors are slowly awakening to the fact that the 1974 SS was not the only purist racer to roll out of Bologna. The 1975 750 Super Sport was identical in specification the 1974 Greenframe, but far viewer were produced. Whereas 401 Super Sports were built in 1974, only 249 were produced in 1975, making them significantly rarer. Astute collectors and Bevel aficionado’s acknowledge the uniqueness of the 1975 Super Sport (both 750cc & 900cc) as only they and the 1973/4 Greenframe were built faithfully to Taglioni’s original design & race-specification, completely without compromise to the fast approaching environmental controls that would begin to soften the SS range in years to follow. While Ducati has maintained the ‘race bike with lights’ philosophy with all their Sports bikes, only the 1974 & 1975 SS’s were genuinely true to the ethos.
This particular example was first delivered in Australia by Norm Fraser Motorcycles (Sydney), and unlike most all 249 built this one’s excellent provenance confirms it was spared the rigors of racing by all of its six owners. In preparation for selling the owner commissioned renown Ducati historian, Ian Falloon, to examine and authenticate the originality of this very rare motorcycle. The ‘Falloon Report’ provides amazing detail about the 1975 Supersport, revealing why things were done, the reasons Ducati made particular decisions at the time, events of the day that steered the direction of this tiny factory that would go on to dominate motorcycle racing across the globe. The Falloon Report is not only an enormous cache of information about the 75SS, but Ian relates that intimate knowledge to the subject, leaving the reader in little doubt that they have before them an opportunity to buy a spectacular example of one of only 249 Super Sports ever to roll out of Bologna in 1975, quoting “As a quality example of a restored 1975 750SS this is extremely good.” “it appears to be one of the better examples I have come across”.
A sealed copy of Ian’s 24-page report is included with the sale.
