As special editions to begin with, Ducati Paul Smart 1000LEs generally see duty as garage queens, left largely stock and original. This one certainly has led a pampered existence thus far, but clearly was owned by someone who did not know the phrase "leave well enough alone."
The list of additions is long, but includes a Termi exhaust, two Schedoni seats, and a smattering of pieces from Rizoma. Cosmetically the bike is immaculate, and given its ultra-low mileage, it should be mechanically sound, too, though it might benefit from a once-over to make sure time hasn't eroded its rubber and plastic parts.
In anticipation of mid-aughts Ducati nylon fuel tanks' propensity to swell in the presence of ethanol fuel, the seller is including an unused, OEM gas tank.

Being a Paul Smart bike, and one laden with aftermarket bits and bobs, the asking price is upper-echelon. With ten days left in the sale, the bike has attracted a few followers at its $29,500 asking price.
