1979 Ducati First Edition MHR - Good, Better, THE BEST! For Sale

Ian Falloon plans to document this bike in his next Ducati Bevel book as an exemplar of the Ducati FIRST EDITION MHR motorcycle. This is THE Mike Hailwood Replica to own. GOOD, BETTER or BEST? For the collector looking for a guaranteed investment, only the BEST will do. The FIRST EDITION MHR is an example of BEST. It has an enviable trifecta of qualities that places it in the BEST category for appreciating values, and compared to the legendary Green Frame (US$137,000) is incredibly under valued. There are 3 qualities that make any collectible appreciate in value. This machine has all three. 1. Simultaneously Rare & Popular. The driver for being popular is to be deireable as proven by unprecedented sales, yet unavailable. An example of being both rare & popular is the First Edition (Rare because a limited number were printed) Harry Potter book set that sells for $6,500, else pickup a 2nd, 3rd,... edition set for $65 of which millions were printed. It is the popularity of later editions - ubiquity that makes First Edition Harry Potter books valuable. A motorcycle example is the rare First Edition 1969 Honda CB750K0 "Sandcast" which is the originator of the iconic and ubiquitous CB. A "Sandcast" sold for US$263,725 at auction, else pick up a 2nd thru 8th edition for < $1,500. With over 400,000 follow up CB750s being made, it is this ubiquity that makes the Rare Sandcast an excellent acquisition. The First Edition 1979 Mike Hailwood Replica, like the 'Sandcast was to Honda, heralded the beginning of Ducati's most popular Bevel model. 6,000 followup bikes from 1980 to 1985 are testimony to the cachet & street cred of the original. 2. Originator of a Motorcycling category - Race Replica. Before the MHR was produced, manufacturers didn't paint their motorcycles in the colours of race sponsors. The MHR launched a new motorcycle category called "factory race replica" motorcycles. 3. Unmatched Sporting credibility and association to GOAT - Mike Hailwood. Uniquely the MHR commemorates the most extraordinary sporting "comeback" of the 20th century. After 7 years of retirement for any sportsman to win at the most gruelling venue in their field is unheard of. Mike Hailwood won the toughest motorcycle race on the planet. This machine, one of the original 200 First Edition bikes made in 1979 offers the astute collector all three of the collecting criteria described. Not only that, but this machine is rarer still. It has a special trio of features that makes it the best among the best as not all First Editions were created equally. - Exact same configuration as the prototype Milan show bike. - Campagnolo wheels as Mike raced with. Not Speedline, - Low knee cut prototype steel petrol tank, same as Milan Show Bike. Not faux fibreglass tank. - Prototype single seat assembly.- One piece full fairing. This fine example is for sale for US$59,500 International Shipping available, message me for more details.
