1993 Ducati 900SS Superlight!

Now this gets me excited - a rare 1993 Ducati 900SS Superlight with 42,000 miles for sale in Sacramento.

I have a preference for Ducati's Supersport (over the Superbikes) as they make better "real world" street bikes with a good dose of old world charm and character from the air-cooled lump.  Of the Supersports, the two most desirable models are the 900SS FE Final Edition as it is the most refined of the air-cooled SSs; the other is the first year (1993, for the US at least) 900SS Superlight, with the signature white frame and 2-piece Marvic wheels:

1993 Ducati 900 SS Superlight, one of 300 that were imported for sale by the orginal owner for only $5,000. This bike has been well cared for. It has Fox shock, forks revalve by Aftershocks, stainless steel brake lines, Corbin seat, has only 42,000 miles. This bike is in excellent shape.

I think the 1993 Superlight is one of the best looking Ducati's ever, and at $5000, it's a lot cheaper than other SL's on the market.  Granted, the mileage is quite high on this one, but if the bike is in good condition then it would be a nice addition to any collection.

Check out previous 900SS SL listings on RSBFS.  Oh, here's the link to the ad: 1993 Ducati 900SS SL for sale in Sacramento. Enjoy!

1998 Ducati 900SS FE for sale in San Francisco

Bargain 1998 Ducati 900SS FE (Final Edition)!

My first post on RSBFS was a 900SS FE and I have always liked the classic lines of the old air-cooled Supersports.  For most people and for most street riding, these bikes are more than enough to get that stupid grin on your face without getting into too much trouble.  And $4500 will get you this very nice 1998 Ducati 900SS FE Final Edition (#30 of 300) for sale in San Francisco:

Final Edition #30
10670 Miles
All Stock except for AFAM front & 39tooth Rear Sproket (1k miles)
1k miles on brakes and tires
Magnetic Tank Bag
Battery Tender
2nd Owner
Minor Cosmetic scratches and rear light lense cracked

So there are some cosmetic scratches and the rear lense is cracked, but what do you expect for a 12 year old bike?  And for the bargain asking price, I can easily over look the minor details.  FEs have been hovering around the $5500 - $6000 range, so this one's a steal.

Also check out Ed's 900SS/FE website - chock full of good info.  If you end up getting this or any other 900SS FE, don't forget to get your bike in the 900SS FE registry as well!

Finally, just to show that Supersports can be Supersexy as well, see this tricked out 900SS FE special done up by performance parts dealer Motowheels complete with BST carbon fiber wheels, carbon fiber tank, Rizoma goodies... hmm....

2001 Ducati 748S With 960 Original Miles!

This is a 2001 Ducati 748S with only 960 original miles!  Located in Escondido, California is a completely stock 748S looking to be in perfect condition as it should with this low mileage.  The bike comes with the original bill of sale, a clean title, owners manual, and service manual.  As standard, this bike has the five spoke Marchesini wheels, Showa suspension, the motor is a derivative of the earlier SPS motor, and the "S" line features a different exhaust system.  The asking price is a very fair $6,000.  It would be possible to ride this bike for five thousand miles and still loose hardly in depreciation.  As long as regular services have been done--If you wish to ride it--I say this bike is a win!  See it on Craigslist here.

2002 Ducati Monster S4 Fogarty Edition with only 2400 Miles!

I didn't even realize they made a special edition to honor Foggy, but here's one of 300 made for sale in Fresno, California on Craigslist. It looks really well preserved and ready to rock for $9500:

2002 Ducati Monster S4 Fogarty Foggy Edition For Sale

quote from seller's listing:

2002 Ducati Monster Foggy Edition with 2,408 miles. Number 87 of only 300 made! Termignoni exhaust, carbon fiber, not a scratch on the bike.

I had to do my research on this one on the Monster Forum and other websites, and from what I've gathered:
- these were all special order.
- only 300 in the world!
- the Fogarty package was only applied to the S4 model (which has the superbike motor and uprated suspension)
- It sits a little taller than the standard S4 (20mm)
- and of course the graphics and plaque are unique to this special edition

I tried to find a Foggy Monster video but to no avail. The closest I could find was the S4 with the high mount Termi cans:

With an original sticker of nearly $15k, this looks pretty good at $10k with only 2400 miles. It's not even broken in yet!

Bimota DB4 in North Alabama

Well, I guess it's Friday - because there is a 2000 Bimota DB4 for sale in North Alabama!

<4k miles
Complete MotoCorse kit (exhaust, carbs, tank, etc.)
Factory ½ fairing
Custom tri-color paint
4-pad calipers
Marchesini forged Mg wheels
Brembo radial master cylinders (forged, both sides)
Enlarged rear storage area

The DB4 shares the same engine as the air-cooled Ducati 900 SS but with Bimota's own alloy trellis frame, handled by Paoli forks up front with an Ohlins shock in the rear.  The DB4 in standard trim is already a very nice handling and fun bike - with all the super desirable (full Motocorse kit [!] and forged Marchesinis ... oi!) go-fast goodies added, this DB4 will for sure be one wicked ride!

Just for reference, here are some other tasty DB4s:

Full Carbon Dream carbon body work, lots of titanium bits and Motocorse goodies, Ohlins forks, Marchesini wheels... the best DB4 I've seen so far!

An early version (I think) of Japanese Bimota specialist Motocorse's own DB4C

Motocorse's version of their "production" (production meaning only 50 were ever made) Db4C with 944cc big bore kit, FCR carbs, titanium full exhaust system, forged wheels, suede leather seat...

Personally, I would have preferred the Carbon Dream version or Motocorse's DB4c, but considering this one has the full Motocorse kit AND the Marchesinis, I wouldn't kick it out of bed for eating crackers either!  Standard DB4s have been floating around the $9000 range, so this one at $10,000 is definitely a good deal (the seller was asking $15,000 only a little over a year ago).

If you have been wanting to join the Bimota brigade, now is the time!
