The red bike to the right is a 1977 900GTS and a bike that runs like a freight train. Not fast, but the motor is wonderful and has enough torque to put a grin, ear to ear on any face.
This was my first vintage bike and the true beginning of the passion and desire I have developed for Ducati.
The Story of this bike is a great one and describes the passion and truly how small the hobby of Ducati's really is. I found this bike online, about 10 minutes after it was posted by a wonderful guy named Doug. He told me about the bike and within an hour (this is New York City) I was in front of the bike and within two hours I was riding it home with a ear to ear grin.
Now what makes the story better is that Doug told me he got the bike from a friend in Long Island, New York ... no big deal, right? Well 6 - 8 months later I am speaking with a guy in Vancover Canada for the first time ... and the subject of what type of Duc's comes up. He says, one bike I loved and sold to a guy in New York 10 or 15 years ago was a red 900GTS with a little ding on the top of the tank.
