Here is a blast from RSBFS founder Dan Crouch’s past. Last seen in July of 2008 on the Dan Crouch Blog (a predecessor of RSBFS) this is a 1993 Ducati 888 SPO with just 713 miles since new. The last of the 851/888 line up before the introduction of the legendary 916 platform, the 888 remains iconic to Superbike fans everywhere.
Here in the States, (road legal) 888s were sold in ’93 & ’94 with the ’93 US model known as the 888SPO. Like a 996, 888s were built with racing in mind and so a prospective buyer would need to look for obvious stuff like head and base gasket leaks. Also, like any other Ducati, a prospective bike would have to have updated & fresh belts tossed in and of course, the same goes for valve adjustments, etc.
This particular bike has some non-standard graphics but the bike looks exceptionally clean and the seller includes over 100 photos which can be accessed here.
