A meticulously researched and thoroughly enjoyable book for both owners of Ducati 750 bevel twins and for the interested enthusiast. Well written, with only the occasional minor typo, and beautifully illustrated and layed out, it leaves the reader with the impression that the author is not only aware of the strengths of these iconic motorcycles but also that they were the product of mere mortals and, as such, had their quirks and faults. As an owner and enthusiast I was delighted to find many interesting facts that even after 30 years of ownership I was unaware of. Particulary interesting was the detailed information about production numbers and the engine and frame numbers of each production batch.

One of about 6 books he has written on Ducati, Fallon is THE authority here. He owns, supports and restores them as well as working as an author. His books compare very well to Mick Walker's which are notoriously inaccurate. Plus Fallon's books are better laid out and organized.
For general reference on Ducati motorbikes look at his "Standard Catalog" book. It sets the context for the brand and covers the entire production through publication date (about 1995±) but the articles on each model are pretty general. For detailed info on the 750GT, Sport or SS including the best information available for accurate restoration, go with this book. It also makes great bike-porn if you're just a fan of the bevel drive 750s.
