Mediterranean Delicacies for Enthusiasts

 DUCLASSIC was founded in 2016 to trade and prepare classic Italian motorbikes. As part of our work, carefully selected motorbikes with the Focus Ducati are acquired largely from collections. The vehicles are subjected to a thorough inspection and then repaired and reconditioned in our specially equipped Ducati Classic Center in Artstetten. The aim is to restore them to their original condition as far as possible.

Company founder Karl Rappersberger

After the apprenticeship as a mechanic and the following masters's certificate, Karl Rappersberger worked as application engineer for industrial lubricants at an oil company. In 1998, togehter with Andi Loidl he founded the company Desmo (repair and sale of Ducati motorcycles) in Prinzersdorf, Austria. The current models at the time - Super Sport and 748 / 916 - have been maintained and repaired primarily by Karl Rappersberger in the workshop at Desmo. At that time the enthusiasm sparked for these models.

2001 Karl Rappersberger started working in surface technology and was looking after industrial companies in the field of coating machines. After a thorough training on the job, he was able to dedicate himself to the passion for converting Ducatis.

In 2006 his Ducati 860 Roadster received an award at the motorcylce fair Bodensee. This success was follwoed by additional conversions, racing motorcycles as well es custom-built machines based on Ducati (more details under Articles).

The pronounced passion for Ducati sport bikes led to the foundation of the company DUCLASSIC in 2016, which focuses on trade, preparation and refining the models Super Sport, Superbike and other classics.

We invite you to share our enthusiasm for classic motorbikes. Arrange a viewing appointment with us, we look forward to your visit.
