The Baja 1000 is without a doubt one of the most grueling motorsport events in the world, covering hundreds of miles of ultra-rugged, unforgiving terrain along the Baja California Peninsula. The iconic race sees a variety of vehicle types campaigned, though few are as unique – and capable – as Carducci Dual Sport’s SC3 Gera Baja racer. The machine was built by Jim Carducci for 2016 Baja 1000 Ironman Champion, Tony Gera and is constructed around a 2003 Harley-Davidson Sportster 1200, though aside from the engine, very little of the donor model remains.

This weapons-grade dual-Sportster features a modified frame, full crash protection, Beringer brakes, Woodys Excel rims, Cycra hand-guards and front fender, a one-off 5052 aluminum skid-plate, a BTR Moto exhaust with custom SST Header and a carbon fiber Leo Vince muffler, a bespoke Carducci billet “Truss” swing-arm, Trailtech headlight and speedometer, Baja Designs auxiliary lights, custom 5-gallon translucent IMS gas tank, PivotPegz foot-rests, ProTaper MX bars, a Corbin MX Control Tech hand-formed seat, and Ohlins suspension that offers 10” of travel front and back. The engine was also massaged by Gera who managed to squeeze a cool 100hp out of the 1,275cc V-Twin. Carducci is now selling one of the two prototype SC3 Gera Baja specimens for $48,000.

Purchase: $48,000
