Emulate ‘Mike the Bike’ astride this Ducati 900 Hailwood replica

Mike Hailwood’s abundant character and enormous talent (nine motorcycle World Championships between 1961 and 1967) has inevitably led to many replicas of his bikes being built in tribute. This commemorative Ducati 900, currently for sale in the Classic Driver Market, is one of the better examples…

A memorable moment in motorsport

Manufactured in tribute to Mike Hailwood’s sensational comeback victory at the 1978 Isle of Man TT, this original UK-market Ducati 900 Hailwood replica is currently listed for sale by Classic Driver dealer Samuel Laurence, and is reputedly in lovely condition. The 13,000-mile, 1980 example is modelled on the 900SS on which ‘Mike the Bike’– aged 38 and after an 11-year absence from racing – made history by winning the Formula 1 race at the Isle of Man.
