1995 Ducati 916 with only 18 miles for sale!

Well H E L L! Take 2! It’s back for more, screaming with a vengeance and with a $60,000.00 B.I.N. price tag this time around.

1995 Ducati 916 with only 18 miles for sale!

It appears to be in the same 27 year old and untouched condition just as it was back in December. The December auction ended early and the last bid recorded was $14,000. I doubt that’s what it originally sold for, but you’re free to let the imagination run on this one.

Ciao!

Well, H E L L! I had this one almost ready to go, then our server decided it was time for an update. That little delay caused me to delay posting it this morning only to return to finish the post and find out the auction was pulled. I think it’s still worth a post so, here it is-


18 mile 1995 Ducati 916 For Sale on eBay

Well, well- what do we have here? Do you think Massimo would be proud to see this or shake his head in disgust? I’m going with the later because I know he painstakingly engineered the 916 to Carl Fogarty’s standards and he rode and beat on his 916 like it owed him money. Okay, cool your batteries, we all know that Massimo didn’t design it for Foggy- that was just some dumb stuff I made up. But, I know we all have some fond memories of Foggy on a 95′ 916. Right?

From the seller
Ducati 916 with 18 original miles, The exterior paint, plastics, seat, exhaust, plastics are perfect (headlights are foggy but clean up). This bike needs a few hours of detailing and possibly replacement of a few small parts to be museum quality. This bike was placed into storage in a barn that was not properly conditioned and humidity affected some of the metal parts. 4 of the dzuz fasteners towards the bottom of the fairings have oxidation, Some of the bolts on the front rotor and the rotor itself have oxidation. The metal fittings on the front brake line also display oxidation. There is a small bubble on the clutch cover where the paint is peeling and another bubble hidden behind the back shock area that is difficult to photo. There was a very, very small spot on one of the wheels that I cannot find again but I know it’s there somewhere because I noticed when I bought the bike. All of the electronics, engine, transmission work properly and I have video of the bike running. This bike is part of my collection which I am starting to sell.


I think this image tells the story of this low mileage 918 916- It shows how it was improperly stored and it shows that it is a real deal 18 mile machine.
Like some, but not all RSBFS.com readers, I find low mileage machines, of any age, very intriguing. I think I find them intriguing because they make me wonder “why?”. In this case, I ask “Why did someone mothball a second year base model 916?”. The naysayers will scream “It’s a base model and doesn’t belong on your site!”. My threshold is simple- Can I find another one? Therefore, I clap back with a resounding “NO!”.

More from the seller
I hate buying and selling because the internet is full of idiots. I have tried to give the best possible description of the bike. Again, it is not perfect but with very minimal effort it will be.

Preach it Brother!

I intentionally sat on this one for a few days because I wanted to see how much action and price it would command. It currently sits at $14,000 with 8 bids placed and the reserve firmly in place.
What’s it going to take?

I know it’s a dead horse and I’m sure you folks are tired of reading it, but PICTURES! PICTURES! PICTURES! If the paint is perfect- show it! If the wheels are perfect- SHOW IT! I suspect this machine would attract a few more dollars with a proper detail and photos.

What do you all think? Let’s discuss it.

Ciao!

Doug

  • and it’s gone.
    best guesses for actual sale price?
    $22k?

  • I wonder if they fogged the cylinders before storage otherwise they look like the brakes. NO

  • It’s back up. He pulled it out of his storage unit and took some different pictures, then revised the listing with a 60K BIN. That bike is a largely worthless, very expensive project…so yeah, the current market should snap that right up.

  • Could be the same seller, but the eBay ID’s are different from the first go around

  • $60k? It is crazy to me how our economy is on the brink of a very significant correction yet people are still partying like it’s 1999.

  • I think that’s the point. Guys with large sums of worthless fiat dollars are buying up anything and everything to park their wealth in. When the buck goes Weimar, they want to be holding as little paper money as possible. Also, inflation is making it cheap for foreigners to buy up a lot of stuff. Just ask Iconic Motorbikes how many of their auctions go straight onto a boat afterward.

  • LOL, please, where do I line up to pay this kind of stupid money for a mediocre, common bike? Better check my crypto ‘investment’ portfolio…….

  • Wow, $60k! Firmly in Desmosidici territory. I know which I would rather have.

  • maybe if there was a V in the vin number, you knw, for Varese… where the first 900 or so were built before the factory burned down and they had to move production…. but there is not… I have a 2500 mile one of those sitting behind me as I type this..
