1983 Ducati 864cc Mike Hailwood Replica
Registration no. A159 RWW
Frame no. DM900R 984269
Engine no. 096509
A landmark model that kept Ducati afloat during the 1980s, the Hailwood Replica owes its existence to Mike's legendary Isle of Man TT comeback victory in the 1978 Production Race riding an ex-works NCR machine entered and prepared by Manchester-based Ducati dealer, Sports Motor Cycles. 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 glassfibre tank and racing seat. In fact, on the very earliest examples the 'tank' hid a steel fuel reservoir, glassfibre being illegal in the UK for tanks. 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.

First registered overseas, this example was imported into the UK by the private vendor in 2013 and registered here in 2016. The machine benefits from new fork seals, Avon tyres, regulator/rectifier, and a rewound generator (all fitted in 2020) and is described by the owner as in very good condition throughout. Bills for the aforementioned parts are on file and the machine also comes with a V5C document.
