1993 Ducati 888 Superbike For Sale in Kansas

I'm always a sucker for the early Ducati superbikes and I'm keenly watching this market. Here's an eBay listing for a 93 Ducati 888 Superbike:

1993 Ducati 888 SPO For Sale in Kansas1993 Ducati 888 SPO For Sale in Kansas1993 Ducati 888 SPO For Sale in Kansas1993 Ducati 888 SPO For Sale in Kansas

quote from seller's eBay listing:

I can't say enough about this bike. It has been a great bike but unfortunately has made it's way to the back of the garage and this bike deserves to be on the road or shown in shows or as a museum piece. I've never ridden it in the rain and it hasn't been ridden much at all in the past few years. I've had it on the Dyno within the past two years and it was still pumping out 100 horses. Great running bike and has the best transmission of any Ducati I've ever owned.

Bike has had several upgrades, such as tinted windscreen, Corbin saddle, O-Ring Chain, Upgraded EPROM, Carbon Fiber Tank Protector, Carbon Fiber Front Fender, Carbon Fiber Rear Hugger, Newer Style Pegs, Vented Clutch Cover and front sprocket cover, almost new tires. The cannisters have been "cleaned out" a bit and the bike runs and roars like a true Ducati should.

I will also send with the bike the Pitbull Rearstand, original front and rear fender, and extra rear "box" that has been cut down, and all other original parts that I can find. I believe I still have the original EPROM, Seat, Rear Fender etc. If I have it, you'll get it.

A few years ago the bike do fall over on hot pavement (Kansas summer heat and fresh asphalt). It didn't do too much damage, but did tweak the left clip-on (I ride it this way with no issues), scratched the back of the mirror and rubbed the part of the fender by the front left-hand turn signal. It is an easy fix with a little filler and some paint. The bike's paint on the side panels were redone before the show to have the AGIP stickers put below the clearcoat along with the black along the bottom to make it look like a factory racer. All other paint looks great for a bike of that age as does all the other parts. In 2000 this bike won the Ducatifest at Eureka Springs, Arkansas. It was a great event and very well attended.

Looking at previous 888's listed on this blog, the buy-it-now price on this bike $8k seems about right. The listing is very honest about condition and it sounds like it is well sorted with common 851/888 modifications. Starting bid is $5k, so there is quite a margin in between. I'll be curious to see where it ends up.

1980 Ducati 900 SS For Sale in San Diego

quote from seller's Craigslist post:

I am the second owner of this beautiful 1980 Ducati 900 SS and have owned it since 1983. It has 17xxx original miles, and is in exceptional condition. It has the "speed kit" installed, which consisted of 40mm del orto carburetors, Conti mufflers and a larger front sprocket. I am including various extras, such as a solo seat, several factory tools, brake pads, oil filters, s&w shocks with two sets of springs (the original marzzochi's are on the bike) a Haynes owners manual and more. I also have the original turn signals, but they are removed for appearance sake.

I couldn't really speculate on this market, but I know it jumped off the page when I opened the link. Any early 900SS owners out there that want to comment?

Check out ducatinewstoday.com for all the best Ducati coverage

I recently stumbled onto Ducati News Today, which is a new blog covering all things Ducati, new and old. Some reasons I've become a big fan:

Ducati News Today

  • Timely news on racing events
  • New model coverage
  • Coverage of older models (my favorite!)
  • Regular Ducati Wallpaper Entries
  • And it's written by a motorcycle roadracer with 25 years of riding experience
  • ^^ who's still authoring the blog after a nasty spill which messed up his shoulder pretty good

That last point takes the cake. I mean seriously, I'd probably let all my blogs go dormant for the foreseeable future if I had an off like that! Keep up the good work Mike, and everyone reading this should subscribe to his blog (right after they subscribe to mine!)

quote from seller's Craigslist posting:

This is another piece of rolling history, a 2007 Ducati Team USA Limited 999S Superbike. There were 150 of these bikes produced, all of them sold only in the USA. None were exported. This is the write up from Ducati on the stock version of the bike.

Ducati Xerox 999R #58

Ducati Xerox 999R #58

quote from seller's Craigslist posting:

If you have not been to visit our warehouse, this Ducati Xerox 999R, #58 with 1387 miles, is another reason you should drop by soon. Another rare slice of modern motorcycle history is now being offered for sale at Automania. The 2006 999R XEROX Ducati Superbike is the customer homologation replica of Troy Bayliss' FO6 World Superbike Championship Motorcycle that he used to dominate and win the 2006 WSB championship.
It has fundamentally the same specifications as the standard 999R but with the special XEROX badging and a few other mechanical differences

I'm really not knowledgable about the values of these bikes. But they are obviously collector examples that will command some premium in the market. Which one would you pick as best value?

1990 Ducati 851 Loaded With Expensive Upgrades

I sometimes forget about the Ducati 851 because Ducatisti stop in their tracks over an 888. But the 851 is a fantastic bike in it's own right, and this example is really packed with thoughtful upgrades. Check out this 1990 Ducati 851 For Sale in California for $5k:

1990 Ducati 851 For Sale

quote from seller's Craigslist posting:

There is nothing like the sound of a 90 degree Italian V-twin. I have for sale a beautiful red 1990 851.This bike has been meticulously kept in running order by Nichols Manufacturing in Milpitas and Moto Forza in Escondido. While being serviced by Nichols, I had them install their CNC Machined 6061-T6, lightened flywheel which removed approximately 3lbs 5oz of rotating mass which greatly enhanced its ability to rev quickly and to take advantage of engine braking. I also had them install their motor mount bolts, which go through the engine block and are tightened at each end which significantly stiffened the chassis. I added the Technomagnesio Rims front and back which shaved off a few pounds of un-sprung weight which made it accelerate harder, stop quicker, and turn into corners with minimal effort. I also added Steel braided brake lines and Ferrado brake pads to assist in slowing this Duc down. I moved to Southern California in 2003 and had the bike serviced by Moto Forza. At that time I added the Nichols Mfg, CNC Machined, 6061-T6, lightened clutch basket and Barnett racing clutch which removed 3.5 pounds of rotating mass. What a difference! coupled with the lightened flywheel this thing revs quickly and accelerates hard with plenty of torque. Other enhancements on the bike include the front forks which are Storz GCB racking forks and clip on’s, Storz steering damper, Ohlins Rear shock, K&N Air Filter, Gio-Ca-Moto high pipes, vented clutch cover, Billet foot pegs, bar end mirror, carbon fiber front and rear fenders, and a carbon fiber gas cap. This beauty has never been crashed or on the track and all of the paint is original. There are some small scratches on the left hand side, but for a bike with only 17,000 miles, this is truly a gem and surely to be a collectors item. I will also throw in the original white Brembo wheels and rear stand for free!
You will not be disappointed in the attention this bike receives. There are thousands of repli-racers all over the place, but when you show up at Alice’s Restaurant, the Duck pond at Laguna Seca, Mt Wilson, or Palomar Mountain, watch how this bike draws a crowd.

It's sacrilege to even suggest it, but parting this bike could probably turn a tidy profit. Of course that would be a shame because this bike looks so well sorted, and for $5k it'd be a real pleasure to the ride balls off of it!

1993 Ducati 888 SPO: Yep Another One!!

Here's another rare sportbike out of the San Francisco bay area; another 1993 Ducati 888 SPO for sale on Craigslist:

1988 Ducati 888 SPO For Sale in San Francisco1988 Ducati 888 SPO For Sale in San Francisco1988 Ducati 888 SPO For SaleDucati 888 SPO For Sale

quote from seller's Craigslist listing:

FOR SALE: A beautiful 1993 888 SPO with 13,700 miles. Your chance to own a piece of history, the last of the hand built Ducatis and the father to the 916. 1 of 200 imported into the USA in 1993 to meet homologation requirements for AMA racing. A truly special machine that helped Ducati win the World Superbike Championship in 1991 and 1992, hence the #1 on the tail section.

Purchased in 2000 with 5,200 miles. Service records since then for major service intervals i.e. belts, valves and throttle body synch done by BCM Ducati in NH as well as by Desmoto in San Francisco.

Bike is stock and in excellent condition. Some minor scratches and chips from riding it. Runs perfectly and is very clean. Has factory rear stand included. Sadly it must go since I only have room for one Italian mistress in the stable.

Please call or email me for more details and pics. Pipes and front discs on bike in photo are not stock and not included.

With a $10888 asking (clever), this is one of the more expensive triple eights to be listed on this blog. While most Ducatisti will agree this where they should be, I think this seller may have a long wait before finding a buyer considering what other examples here in the states have been going for.
