Here is a rare chance to acquire a vehicle used in the production of a James Bond movie and now for sale with H&H Classics’ sale on December 7th at the National Motorcycle Museum.
This 2019 Scrambler Desert Sled was one of four bikes loaned by Ducati UK to the producers to be used in the making of the latest James Bond film 'No Time To Die'. It seems two were not ridden in anger, one used as a camera/stunt bike and this one, that is thought to be the bike used in the opening sequence of the film, seen chasing James Bond’s Aston Martin DB5, across a square in Matera Italy with one of the villains astride.
The Ducati Scrambler also appears to have been used in a scene, that didn’t make it into the final cut of the movie, where it was crashed through a gate and then into a pile of cardboard boxes by one of the films stunt riders. There is third party footage of the stunt on YouTube at: https://youtu.be/aDBFxq4oyxQ
The machine is still registered to Ducati UK and supplied with a full set of owner’s books, keys and a current V5C. It is estimated to sell for an estimate of £10,000.
It should be noted that in the ensuing crash the bike suffered damage to the fork yokes, wheel rims and a few more scratches and scuffs. After filming the bikes were returned to Ducati UK to be sold into the dealer network. Still registered to Ducati UK, the bike has been run recently but will need repair work to make it rideable. Supplied with its full set of owner’s manuals and keys and a current V5C, this is an opportunity to own a ‘Bond’ related vehicle.
For those motorcycling purists for whom only the best of the best will do, here is bike to make the heart beat faster. This Iconic MV Augusta 750 S has been in the vendor's hands since 1986, previously on display for many years at the Midland Motor Museum.
The mileage is believed correct due to lack of use, as it has been on display. It was purchased by the vendor in 1986 and then placed back on loan at the museum. The MV will need recommissioning before use, due to storage, but has been run from time to time. A current V5C and various paperwork, including old MOT certificates and purchase receipt on file.
Launched in 1970, the MV Agusta 750 S was hand-built, rare and priced accordingly with just 583 examples ever built, along with the Ducati 750 SS, it is recognised as probably the most iconic and sought after motorcycle of the Post War period.
The MV 750S was developed from the MV Agusta 4C 600cc. The engine was then bored out to 743cc with the additional fitting of four Dell' Orto carburettors and increasing it to 65bhp. The colour scheme was unique for the 750S painted in red, white and blue. A very desirable machine today and one for the MV collector.
If the idea of having a bike to take part in the Goodwood Revival appeals to you, look no further. It has campaigned at many race events since 2016 with some success and has raced at the famous Goodwood Revival in 2016.
This splendid Gilera Saturno has been enjoyed by the current vendor since 2014 and the previous owner David Kirby restored it to a very high standard.
There is a data sheet on file with all the current specs of the machine and set up. It comes complete with the original front wheel.
