1987 Ducati 750 Laguna Seca, Lucchinelli Replica
The Ducati F1 was complemented by a series of hand-built limited-edition race replicas Montjuich, Santamonica and Laguna Seca the last being named in honor of rider Marco Lucchinelli's Battle of the Twins victory at the famous California track in 1986, commemorated with a likeness of his signature on the gas tank. Like the Montjuich, the Laguna Seca came with bigger carburetors, stiffer compression ratio, bigger valves, less restrictive exhaust and straight-cut primary gears.
There were some changes between the two bikes, namely in the Laguna's adoption of parts from the new Paso roadster. The delta-spoked Oscam wheels came from the Paso, as did the wider front fender. Other changes included a steel gas tank, different exhaust system, revised footpeg bracketry and a plastic rear sub-fender attached to the swingarm.
As seen here on the Silverman Laguna Seca, most models came with a solo seat, though there was a two-up option available. As with the Montjuich, only 200 Laguna Secas were produced, making it then and now an exclusive, highly prized motorcycle.
