Déjà Blue 500

$ 0.00



Cook Neilson shocked the AMA racing world with his win in the Superbike Series at Daytona in 1977 on his special modified Ducati 750SS ‘Old Blue’. A replica of the iconic racer was commissioned by the Barber Motorsport Museum in 2008 – the Déjà Blue. We’ve created our own homage to Cook and his team with a street-legal version, the Déjà Blue Ducati 500.

This one- of- a- kind motorcycle was designed, built and test driven by Barn Luck’s own Chief Engineer Rudy Schachinger, feared back-to-back Florida State Champion in the vintage motorcycle light & heavyweight classes.
