About the item

“The ultra-rare Pantah-engined super special. In the 80s this was the holy grail.” -Adam Lindemann Ducati’s 1982–84 TT2 and the later 750 cc TT1 racing bikes were among the most successful of their time and still are considered among the best racers ever built by the famed Borgo Panigale firm. In true Ducati style, the racing bike would make its way to the road, following in the footsteps of the legendary 750 Super Sport and 900 Mike Hailwood Replica. And so, in 1985, a new model was introduced: the 750 F1. The 750 F1 was significant in that it was Ducati’s final air-cooled superbike before the company was taken over by Cagiva near the end of 1985. Derived from the highly successful 600 TT2 racer, the larger 750 cc engine made the F1 eligible for Formula TT motorcycle competition. At the heart of the bike, the striking and functional steel trellis frame suspended a powerful stressed member L-twin air-cooled engine. Only about 1,800 of the original F1A and F1B were produced. Ducati also released three limited-edition F1 models all named after famous racing circuits, the Montjuich, the Laguna Seca, and the Santamonica, named after the Autodromo Santamonica in Misano, Italy. To knowledgeable enthusiasts, by far the purest and most desirable was the Montjuich, such as the exceptional example offered here, named after Barcelona’s legendary racetrack. Only 200 were ever produced. The engine of the Montjuich was revised with larger ports, hotter cams, higher compression pistons, 40 mm Dell’Orto carburetors, and a Verlicchi two-into-one exhaust, which produced an intoxicating sound. This resulted in an impressive 20 hp increase over the standard F1. This extra power was transmitted through a lightweight clutch and straight-cut gears. Lightweight 16" two-piece wheels used Marvic/Akront magnesium center sections and Brembo provided the large state-of-the-art full-floating Goldline disc brakes. The aluminum swing-arm and fuel tank were Verlicchi units and the overall lightweight nature of the bike’s design kept the catalogued weight to 341 pounds. This incredible example, acquired by Mr. Lindemann from a collection of important Italian motorcycles in Connecticut, has been sparingly used and presents in absolutely stunning condition, showing just 2,334 miles when catalogued. Ducati achieved the highest state of tune and incorporated the finest components in these very special race replicas, truly marking the end of a glorious era. This fantastic, low-mileage example represents a rare opportunity to acquire one of the 1980’s rarest and most exotic motorcycles.
