Wasnt that the "super mono" class or something. Ducati built a bike for it.
I wouldn't have the willpower to leave it parked.If not familiar with the 749R, this was Ducati’s upgraded performance version of the base 749 model. This particular 749R is 774 miles from new! Ducati 749R upgrades included titanium connecting rods, magnesium alloy valve covers, a shorter stroke, increased bore, larger valves, super...www.ebay.com
Too pretty to ride...
The dirt tracker would make a much better conversation piece in the living room, although you may end up sleeping in the garage at the suggestion. I agree, I would not want to own bikes I don't ride.I was/am shopping for a 999R or 748R.
A 749R would be cool though.
I guess that price isnt terrible for the miles. But honestly I do not value the miles at all as I have no plans to put it in my living room.
I was flipping through Mecums, Vegas and was trying to convince my wife how nice this Flying Merkel would look in the sunroom. And when people ask you get to say "it's a Flying Merkel". Perfect colour, interesting name, I still don't get what the objection is.Funny you say that.
The speedway bike might end up on display inside the house.
Last weekend I almost put the SB8K in the livingroom while my wife was out.

Not a terrible price. The real prize in that package are the brackets that bolt up to the Z1/KZ frame.Rickman fairings.

I've done a pretty good job in avoiding buying rare Z1 parts lately... but still, I should really probably pare down my parts stash in preparation for moving back to texas.Then at $450US they are a pretty good deal. Vintage stuff of quality has certainly gone up since then.
