Unrestored 1976 Ducati 900SS only 4 kms from new “Non Omologato” model. Only the first 600 750SS and 900SS models were Non Omologato, as homologation rules meant these machines had to be sold with 32mm carbs and Lafranconi exhausts, instead of the 40mm Dellortos and fire breathing Conti exhausts as standard. It is almost impossible to find an early Ducati 900SS square case in NOS condition like this one, as they were ridden when they were bought new, almost never kept unridden in museum condition. There are only a handful examples like this in the world, so this is a unique classic motorcycle investment opportunity. The patina is typical of Ducati’s finish of the period and the motorcycle has been so well preserved and yet displays a patina commensurate with the finish from Ducati of this era. After the 1975 Ducati 750SS and 900SS, the 1976 is next rarest in this series and sits perfectly alongside the green frame. The Non Omologato is definitely the one to go for and this is probably the only new old stock example in existence.
Rare classic Ducati
This rare classic Ducati is one of the best examples we know to exist and offers classic motorcycle investors a fantastic opportunity. The 1976 Ducati 900SS Non Omologato has unique engine stampings and frame stamps which help to set it out from the rest of the small production numbers of this important year for the Ducati factory. This example comes with the original factory tool kit and the lead seal is still in tact on the motor, as you would expect. The motorcycle is exactly what you would have found when you went into a Ducati dealership in 1976 and offers a great insight into the machines of this magical era. Never again will motorcycles be manufactured in the way that the Ducati factory made these machines during this great time of engineering prowess. The Ducati factory took half a day to build these bevel drive motors, when new during 1976. They lost money on every motorcycle they sold until 1985 and the Italian government just wrote their debt off, so Ducati owners were subsidised by the Italian government to own and ride their Ducatis at this time in history. This particular example has been featured in Ian Falloon’s book about the Ducati 900SS bevel drives and is known to be a genuine example. There are very few times in a lifetime when such a great opportunity presents itself and this is one of those times. Once this example has been bought, it will be a long time before another such example comes to the market. I only know of one other such example to exist, although I am sure there are a few more but certainly not many
Excellent Italian classic motorcycle investment
This excellent Italian classic motorcycle investment comes with free UK delivery and a one year unlimited mileage warranty, should you wish to ride it. However, it would greatly devalue the motorcycle to ride it, as it really is a museum grade example of this rare Italian classic motorcycle. This is a great opportunity to own a very rare piece of motorcycling history, as nearly all Ducati 900SS have been restored by now and there are so few NOS examples like this one anywhere in the world. The 1976 Ducati 900SS was a direct pre-cursor to the motorcycle which Mike Hailwood won the 1978 Isle of Man TT on and when you ride one of these wonderful classic motorcycles, you understand how he won the TT on one of these. The classic motorcycle pedigree of the 900SS, especially this year model, in unparalleled and offers investors guaranteed returns in the coming decade or so. This is a unique opportunity to own a very rare piece of motorcycling history.
