1973 Vincati 1200 1200

This is a very rare motorcycle; one of only six in the world. It is a classic hybrid of the famous V-twin Vincent engine in the mid 1970s excellent-handling 750 Ducati frame. It has updated modern features with a classic motor and frame. Some have described it as “Engine by Shakespeare, chassis by Michelangelo”.

The bike was originally silver and red and had been “mocked up” by its previous owner. The motorcycle had never started or run. Ziggy was able to modify pistons and cylinders, exhaust and install a starter system, and now she runs. After we knew the bike would start, run and ride, it was taken apart and repainted with gold anodized wheels and black paint. Beautiful, rare beast. It most recently won the Spirit of Innovation Award at the 2016 Quail Motorcycle Gathering in Carmel, California.
