1970s Ducati 750 Sport

Ducati lots will have a few units in varying conditions. We have approximately 1970 Ducati 900 Super Sport and 750 Sport models that may need some love once they reach owners. The bikes themselves should appeal to collectors of the Italian brand and cost between AUD$30,000 and AUD$40,000, or around US$20,000 to around US$30,000.

1976 Ducati 900 Super Sport

Then there are two replica Mike Hailwood 900s (MHR900), one from 1979 and the other from 1981. Shannon estimates that the 1979 model will cost around AUD$48,000 to AUD$58,000 (about $34,000 US$41,000), while the 1981 unit is priced between AUD$25,000 and AUD$35,000, or around US$17,000 to US$25,000. These bikes are considered top-notch collectibles due to their rarity, which resulted in small production numbers. The first MHR is well maintained and restored while the second from 1981 has not been started in recent years and is in “project status”.

1979 Ducati MHR900

The last Ducati in the mix is ​​a circa 1973 Ducati 750 GT that has been in storage since 2011 and is not running. This will likely be the cheapest way to access this lot with an estimated bid value between AUD20,000 and AUD25,000 ($14,000 to $18,000).

MV Agusta Brutale 800 RR Lewis Hamilton

Taking a break with the Ducatis, we move on to Varese with MV Agusta. A more modern prize this time is up for grabs with the 2019 MV Agusta Brutale 800RR Lewis Hamilton Edition. There are only 144 of these bikes in the world, and this is number 004 in production. Shannons knows this bike is a desirable unit and he values ​​it at AUD$38,000 to AUD$46,000 ($27,000 to $33,000).

Shannons Australia Summer 2022 Online Auction – Norton Commander

1988 Twin Rotary Norton Commander

The last bike on the list is a 1988 Norton Commander P53 dual spin. Immediately the bike becomes a very original collector’s item due to its engine and the mystique and collectability of vintage Norton bikes. It’s a rarer model to see from the brand, it’s a tourer that should sell for between AUD$24,000 and AUD$30,000 (US$17,000 to US$22,000).
