After it first debuted at the 1985 Sydney Motorcycle Exhibition, Ducati’s road-going race replica — the 750 F1 — proved itself to be an instant hit. While this was partly due to the successes enjoyed by Mike Hailwood, it was also because the bike was a brilliant machine. So much so, in fact, that Ducati quickly expanded its lineup to include more approachable versions (the F3 350 and 400) in an attempt to cater to markets focused on smaller displacement offerings.

For the power plant, the F1 utilized a 748cc L-twin engine derived from the 1984 750 TT1 racer. When paired to a five-speed gearbox and a pair of 36mm Del’Orto carburetors, the bike made a respectable 80hp at 10,000rpm — enough grunt to take the svelte sub 400-pound package to a top speed of 161mph. One of the most impressive features of Ducati’s creation, however, was its inclusion of a mono-shock; in combination with the tubular trestle frame, the suspension made a marked difference on the ride quality.

Only 2,501 total units of the F1 were produced from 1985-88 including different versions such as the Laguna Seca, the Montjuich, as well as the Santa Monica. Many motorcycle enthusiasts consider the 750 F1 to be the last of the “true Ducatis” as its introduction predated the eventual Cagiva takeover.

This example is VIN: ZDM3AA3LXFB000495. Please note: The seller states that this bike features a frame that was leftover from Ducati’s 1985 production run. Accordingly, it bears two VIN stampings: the original on the headstock as well as the subsequent assigned (current) VIN on the plate.

The seller acquired the bike earlier this year from a longtime friend and motorcycle collector. He notes that this 750 F1 is a restomod tribute that was built by Commonwealth Motorsports over a five-year period and completed in 2013. If you’d like to see a quick build clip, check out the following video:

He states that, since the project was completed, the bike has seen approximately one hour of run time (some of which was on a Dyno). However, true mileage is unknown.
