Italian classics continue to rise in value, with once affordable exotica increasingly fetching eye-watering money. Case in point is this beautiful 1980 Ducati 900SS scheduled to go on the block at Bonhams’ Las Vegas auction Thursday. Bonhams’ pre-sale estimate on this bike, fully restored with 28,031 miles showing on the clock, is $38,000-$42,000. Likewise, an earlier 1975 750SS is expected to fetch $40,000-$45,000, while a coveted 1974 750SS “green frame” — rattled canned red by an owner in the 1970s and needing recommissioning — is expected to bid to $65,000-$85,000.
