I just bought a new toy! After wanting a duck forever I finally found one! A fella in Denton, TX had this beautiful 1974 GT 750 for the last 10 years.
The motor was rebuilt by Sid In Florida and updates with better pistons, higher compression, electronic ignition, ect!
If you’re not familiar this model was the beginning of the twins for Ducati. At the time, no twins were really being built since Vincent other than Harley Davidson. Taglioni said it was one of his favorite designs and has stood the test of time as a great one!
The old girl had been sitting for 4 years with the gas left in the tank and carbs! I took them apart piece by piece and there are a pile of little bits, washers and springs there! Metal Rescue cleaned the rust out of the tank perfectly! After that she fired right up!
The Red beauty in the background is Bryan Heidt’s that builds at the shop on projects. He had Joe repaint it recently which looks great!
