Ducati 750 GT

Ducati 750 GT
I’ve always thought the early 70s Ducati 750 GT was a looker. That silver frame, the flat seat, the hint of metalflake in the paint and the upswept exhausts: it’s the archetype of the classic retro style so popular today. The ‘round case’ GT was designed by Fabio Taglioni, and was also the first Ducati to feature the now-familiar L-twin motor. The images here show a 1972 model; after being restored, it spent ten years in a shed, unridden. A few days ago it was wheeled out, the dust was brushed off, and it was taken to the Toulouse studio of French motorcycle photographers Guerry and Prat. As you might expect, they’ve done a superlative job. Enjoy.
