    new to me 748

    Been after one for a while, wanted a nice honest early one that's not be messed about with, and I like the Ducati logo's on the sides better than the later ones with only 748 on the side.
    It is in good company

    It also resides with a 1957 Austin Healey 100/6 and a 1981 Suzuki LJ80 !

    That takes me back, very nice.

    I had an early 748, one of the first in the UK, exactly the same colour scheme and Termis; my last sports bike before moving Harley and GS.

    I have been looking out for a yellow 900 Superlight but they seem to be going up in price.

    I bet that sounds epic ! One of the nicest sounding bikes ever the 748 with termi's.

    Completely agree, the early ducati logo is class, had 2, biposto and 748 sp, lovely piece of history, class from tamburini.

    Pal of mine had a 749 , such a focussed bike and great to look at with its clothes (fairing) off.

    Lurvely - much more fun than the 916 - engine spins up quickly and sounds a treat with the termi's. A keeper me thinks.

    Of course as is customary on Ducati forums - pity you didn't get it in the faster colour in the Senna Grey (like my 748s).��

    Had an 851 before this and the 748 is just such a more rewarding bike to ride - and even relatively comfortable in comparison as long as you keep moving. Hope you get as much enjoyment out of it as I do - and joking aside in the red scheme you have just a stunning bike to look at even today. The 916 style was just so right.

    I had a 748 that was exactly the same and after I'd sold it I constantly regretted it

    I'd buy another but it'd need to be a yellow SP and they don't come cheap

    Bought from Lincolnshire? Looks a lot like my mate's old one. I was thinking about having that, nice bike and didn't miss a beat at TT this year...
