The other day we were down in Gowanus, checking out a possible bike purchase, when we stumbled upon this incredible Ducati 900 GTS…
A different type of Ducati: Ducati 900 GTS
Released in 1978, to replace the Ducati 860 GT, this model boasted an air cooled, a stress-member frame (engine is a part of the rigidity), and one of the best looking tanks around. Couple that with the Ducati heritage for race bikes, and you had one hell of a bike.
The bike, in this form, was only released for 2 years. The slight changes from the earlier 860 GT, and a motorcycle market soon to move toward cruisers and early sport bikes, made this a short-lived dream.
The folks over at Silodrome have a great example of this bike, done up right with plenty of aluminum. Check it out HERE:
