1983 Ducati Mike Hailwood Replica

If you ride a motorcycle and have never heard of Mike “the Bike” Hailwood then you’ve got some explaining to do. Hailwood is considered by some to be one of the greatest motorcycle racers of all time having won 76 Grand Prix victories, 14 Isle of Man TT wins and 9 World Championships. In short, the man is a bona-fide two-wheeled legend. When I began riding bikes back in the late 1980’s names like Kevin Schwantz, Doug Polen, Phil Reed, Freddie Spencer and Mike Hailwood were the guys we talked about. Their achievements were awe-inspiring, and for us “squids” we simply wanted to be associated with them in some way. Fast forward to the 1983 Ducati 900SS “Hailwood” replica you see here on eBay. This bike was created to celebrate Hailwood’s win in 1978 at the Isle of Man TT. The owner states that it’s covered just 12,750 miles, has been completely gone through and is running in top-notch condition. By today’s standards this thing handles and accelerates like a dump truck, however if you’re looking for a stunningly beautiful ride that’s highly collectable, then look no further.

    ooh i love pics from garages like this it gives me an oportunity to play identify the car. i recognised the volvo 1800es, the Austin Healey sprite (or mg midget), lt1 black cab, what looks like a isuzu trooper though i am not sure. but i cant identify the 30-40’s looking car you get a glimpse of in the first and third pic id like to say it looks like a bugatti but that split front grille makes me think it could be a early bmw
