• A wonderful example of the iconic Mike Hailwood Replica
• 135mph state of the art road going motorcycle

A landmark model, the Mike Hailwood Replica owes its existence to Mike The Bike's legendary Isle of Man TT comeback victory in the 1978 Production Race riding an ex-works NCR bike entered by Sports Motor Cycles. Out of top-flight bike racing for seven years and away from the Island for eleven, Mike beat the might of the Honda works team to win the Formula 1 TT at record speed. Ducati lost little time in capitalizing on this outstanding success, launching a road-going replica the following year, which kept Ducati afloat for several years.

Like the race-bike, the MHR was based on the production 900SS, but - inevitably - had much more in common with the latter than the former. Most obvious difference was the full fairing finished in red, green and white, complemented by a glass fiber tank and racing seat. Mechanical changes were confined to lighter wheels, usually by Campagnolo, and improved Brembo brakes, while the MHR's performance was pretty much the same as that of the 900SS: around 135mph flat-out.

The MHR presented here is usually nicknamed the 'Hailwood Mille', getting a 1,000cc engine, a factory electric starter and a large fairing. The bike was purchased by the vendor a decade ago while he was putting together his personal motorcycle collection. A note on file from the original owner when he was selling the machine states that it won two prestigious awards whilst in his ownership. The 1987 Judges choice awarded at the IMOC Meet at the Indian Motorcycle Museum, Springfield MA and the 2005 Most Outstanding Motorcycle (1974 – 1985) awarded at The Greenwich Concours d'Elegance. In the words of the vendor this example is one of the most gorgeous original examples offered. This machine comes from a well known car collector that 15 years ago, decided to buy what he thought were the most iconic motorcycles of the 1970's and 1980's and set out to find the ones in the best original or restored conditions. All machines are maintained by the Guzzi Doctor in Illinois and have been kept on a trickle charge ready for a warm ride, they have been stored in a climate-controlled environment set at 65F and are ready to ride away.
