Featured: 851/955 Ducati Superbike racer!

For Sale: 851/955 Ducati Superbike racer!

Unlike some pristine offerings that have been modified to appear like a race bike (such as this Ducati 1080 Supersport), what we have here today is the REAL DEAL - an honest racebike. Don't let the battle scarred exterior scare you away; at the track these are the bikes that the competition fear. The shiny bikes are for show. This is an experienced warrior with serious "go" potential - and the creds to back it up.

From the seller:
955 Superbike engine built by Fast by Ferracci
- Large Valves
- "G" Cams
- Titanium connecting rods
- Lightened and balanced crank
- Corse close ratio gear box

From the seller:
- Marvic 3 Spoke Magnesium Wheels

- Ohlins rear shock

- "LE" Front forks

- Carbon Fenders

- Brembo Cast Iron Front Rotors

- Previously owned and raced by Greg Koup

This is the kind of bike that really speaks to me. Ducati built the 851 to go racing, and previous owners have continued to modernize and enhance the basic package with some of the best knowledge and modifications avaiable. I can't even imagine how quickly this one spins up with the lightened crank and Ti rods. If you are looking for a track bike with great handling, massive torque and that fantastic Ducati booming sound, you'd better jump on this one quickly!

The seller has this 851/955 listed at just $5,750. That is not a lot of money for a bike with these kinds of mods (have you rung up Eraldo Ferracci lately and asked him what it would cost to build you a desmoquattro motor?), and replacement skins are easy to find if you prefer the show AND go. Contact DucPond Motorsports directly for this one via EMAIL or phone: 540-667-3498

Built For One Purpose….Winning: 1996 Ducati 955 SP (1 OF 50)

1996 Ducati 955 SP (1 Of 50)

This might be the rare of the rare for Duc fans.  It appears to be the real deal, a 955SP.  50 or so of these bikes were built to homologate the bikes for AMA racing.  A few survived the track and fewer never made it to the track.  This appears to be one of the latter.  Before you ask, the 955's never got stickers that proclaimed they were 955's.  To the average Joe, you are riding a 916.  Underneath though a surprise is lurking.

Hey, I don't see a plaque!  Apparently Ducati did not put plaques on them but some say Ferraci (Fast By Ferraci) did put plaques on some of the bikes.  I cannot confirm or deny.  The engines should have 955 stamped on them though and this one does.  So what is different about these bikes?  Info is scare to say the least.  I found this info from a Ducati forum.  It is apparently from the owners manual:

Your motorcycle differs from the 916SP model in the following technical features:
-Bore:mm 96
-Cylinder head gasket for 96mm bore
-Crankshaft - Main transmission- lighting

From the auction (31 bids and counting.  Must be trying find that elusive reserve):

This is a rare 1996 Ducati 955 SP.  The bike has the decals of a 916 SP but the engine has been modified to allow the maximum size for racing applications.  They only imported 50 of these bikes into the United States for racing purposes.  I am selling this bike for a friend of mine who lives in Huron, SD so please correct me if I am wrong, kustom Harley Davidson's are my game, although I am a fan of this Ducati!

The bike comes with Termignoni exhaust, Marchesini wheels and new Pirelli Diablo tires.  It was recently serviced in Palm Springs before returning to South Dakota.

The owner is an older gentleman with a fine taste for exquisite machines and takes great care and maintenance of all his possessions.  Please call for more details or information we can provide. It is on display at Klock Werks in Mitchell, SD if you would like to view it.

I'm taking a pass on the value and instead passing along some info from the auction itself.  There have been several question posed to the seller and one came from a 955 SP owner.  He valued the bike in the $15,000 to $17,000 range.  He also heard that a 1200km, dealer owned bike sold for $27,000.  You know as much as I do now.  It sure would be a nice piece of racing history to have.  .

2002 Triumph Daytona 955i Centennial Edition in IL

2002 Triumph Daytona 955i Centennial Edition in IL

Here is something a little different.  1 of 200 made.   The CE edition differs from the standard 955i in several ways:

Aston Green color which is was only availabe on the CE

Some carbon bits including a hugger and tank inlays

Single sided swing arm

Forged steel crankshaft and connecting rods and forged aluminum pistons.  Result is more hp compared to the standard 955i

 

This might be a nice opportunity to pick up a limited edition bike with some nice upgrades at a very reasonable price.  The seller is asking $4700 and the bike is listed on Craigslist.

Sales Summary – September 2017

Late Summer / early Fall is one of the best times to move a bike; you've had all summer to ride, yet the weather is still good enough to make buyers interested in purchasing an outdoor toy. Late Summer 2017 was as good as it gets - the supply of bikes was great and the general quality was quite high (with a few interesting exceptions). Whether you are a collector or simply interested in values, let's take a look back at September 2017 and see what sold and for how much. Links to the original post on RSBFS included.

Say it Ain’t So – 1988 Kawasaki KR-1 / KR250B

Dan would have to weigh in on how many bikes Gary has listed and sold on RSBFS, but suffice it to say the past year has been a great success.  Saving the best for last would be a debatable and bittersweet claim, maybe there's another container of gray-market wonders back there ?  Better to relish the KR-1 presented here.

1988 Kawasaki KR-1 KR250 for sale on eBay

Not actually derived from or intended to be a race bike, the KR-1 had a meteoric rise and quick retirement just a few years later.  The parallel twin pushed 55 hp, but peaky like no one's business, making power just between 6,000 and 11,000 RPM.  Never offered stateside, it thrilled young riders in the U.K. and the Pacific rim, and has only occasionally found its way here.  The super-light under 300 lbs. machine was over-equipped with dual disks, adjustable suspension, and 17-inch front / 18-inch rear wheels.

Gary has made presentation of gray market specials look easy, but this one is different.  Rather than doll up someone else's issues, this KR-1 was brought over restored, low miles, just about perfect.  As always, it's ready to run with legal title and registration.  His comments from the eBay auction:

Up for sale is a 1988 Kawasaki KR-1 with only 20,640 kilometers (12,825 miles). Bike is in mint condition. The collector whom I purchased it from in Japan did a full frame up restoration. Complete engine, front forks, front and rear brakes, drive train, rear suspension, custom paint restoration. I don’t normally buy bikes like this but when I saw that no expense was spared to make this bike look and run new, I just had to have it. Bike looks gorgeous and is in mint condition. There are only a few very light scratches and handling marks. All fairings and components are 100% Genuine OEM Kawasaki factory. All replacement parts used in the restoration were genuine OEM parts. Bike is completely stock. Bike runs like new. Comes with new battery and new engine fluids.

I’ve saved the best for last. The last is here.

Kawasaki saw the writing on the wall early and focused on four-strokes for 1993.  But the power delivery, quick steering, and riding position of the KR-1 are legend.  Hopefully an adult rider can keep it out of the tank slappers it destined novice riders to experience.  In a era where a successful design could be considered 100 machines ( Buell or Bimota ), or a thousand ( Ducati or Moto Guzzi ), Kawasaki saw the future on the other side of 10,000 KR-1's.  But for a fan of the green and white, there was never such a lightweight.
