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

GOOD, BETTER or BEST? <br /> <br /> For the collector looking for a guaranteed investment, only the BEST will do.<br /> <br /> There are 4 qualities that make any collectible appreciate in value. This 1979 First Edition MHR surpasses even the legendary Green Frame (US$137,000) by having all three.<br /> <br /> 1. Original in every way. Restoring an item that is in servicable condition can reduce its value more than 50%. <br /> <br /> 2. Simultaneously Rare & Popular. The driver for being popular is to be desirable as proven by unprecedented sales, yet unavailable. How does that work?<br /> <br /> 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.<br /> <br /> It is the popularity of later editions - ubiquity that makes First Edition Harry Potter books valuable.<br /> <br /> 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 < $20,000.<br /> <br /> With over 400,000 follow up CB750s being made, it is this popularity that makes the Rare Sandcast an excellent investment.<br /> <br /> 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 desirability & street cred of the original.<br /> <br /> 3. Originator of a Motorcycling category - Race Replica.<br /> <br /> Before the MHR was produced, manufacturers didn't paint their motorcycles in the colours of race sponsors. The First Edition MHR launched a new motorcycle category called "factory race replica" motorcycles.<br /> <br /> 4. Unmatched Sporting credibility and association to GOAT - Mike Hailwood.<br /> <br /> 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 grueling venue in their field is unheard of. Mike Hailwood won the toughest motorcycle race on the planet.<br /> <br /> This machine, one of the original 200 First Edition bikes made in 1979 offers the astute collector all of the collecting criteria required. 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.<br /> <br /> - Exact same configuration as the prototype Milan show bike.<br /> - Campagnolo wheels as Mike raced with. Not Speedline,<br /> - Low knee cut prototype steel petrol tank, same as Milan Show Bike. Not faux fiberglass tank.<br /> - Prototype single seat assembly.- One piece full fairing.<br /> <br /> International Shipping available, message me for more details. <br /> <br /> All sensible offers considered.
