Description

Additional photos are available here for your perusal.

First debuted at the 1985 Sydney Motorcycle Exhibition, this road going replica was an instant success. So much so that even the little sibling versions F3 350 and 400 were thrown into production in an attempt to cater to markets with more focus on smaller displacement machines.

The power plant is derived from the 1984 750 TT1 racer that replaced the 600 TT2 from ’81. With the momentum and attention the Italian manufacturer garnered with the success of Mike Hailwood, the F1 was was a popular model.The F1 featured a constant-mesh five-speed tranny and its 748.1cc engine made 94hp at 10,000RPM. It also featured a mono-shock, such an advancement that we still find them on our modern sport machines to this very day. That advanced suspension combined with the tubular trestle frame were a recipe for success that would be utilized for many years following the F1.

Only 2,501 total units of the F1 were produced from 1985-88 including different versions such as the Laguna Seca, Montjuich and Santa Monica.

The Laguna Seca spec commemorated Marco “Lucky” Lucchinelli winning the 1986 “Battle of the Twins” at the iconic, technical Northern-California circuit . In addition to wearing a Lucky Lucchinelli livery, the F1 Laguna Seca also boasts (a decal of) Lucchinelli’s signature on the tank of the limited edition Ducati.

The Laguna Seca’s improvements over the F1 base-model included an upgraded engine and exhaust, wider Oscam rims, and Brembo gold-series brakes. The Laguna model is very similar to the Montjuich, aside from minor changes such as different cylinder heads, a plastic rear fender, some difference in clutch mechanism, a newer muffler, and some cost cutting measures like a steel tank, instead of the Montjuich’s alloy unit. It has been rumored that only 200 Laguna Seca examples were produced.

Manufactured in February of 1987, this example is VIN: ZDM3GA3M0HB750161. The seller purchased this example 10 years ago from the second owner.
