Here’s a hot auction on eBayMotors for a 1997 Ducati 900 SS/SP with only 400 miles! With only 4 bids, it’s already showing $8100. Take a look:
quote from seller’s eBayMotors listing:
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity! The 900 Supersport SP listed is #42 out of 100 made and is possibly the nicest Supersport SP in existence on the planet with 401 actual miles on the odometer. The original owner bought it to be part of his collection and after a few years it was purchased by the owner/principal of one of the largest Ducati Dealers in the world to add to his personal collection. His over-the-top personality meant that he couldn’t leave the bike as a stock 900 Supersport SP – it had to be the best SP in the world. Here are some of the things he did:
STM Evo Slipper Clutch $3250, Clutch Plate Kit $600; STM Slave Cylinder Kit $245; Michelin Pilot Sport Tires $318; Ohlins Fork Kit with Sleeves $2715; Ohlins Shock Kit $795; Ohlins Steering Damper Kit $595; Multi Adjust Rearset System $550; Front Magnesium Wheel $1795; Rear Magnesium Wheel $1575; Headwork & Flow $1395; Miscellaneous Parts (Instrument cover, brake fluid tank mounting kit, Radial clutch pump, clutch fluid tank separate mount kit, Race braking system with brake calipers, kevlar front & rear brake lines kit, clutch tube kevlar braided, set of timing belt covers, lightweight Z14 sprocket, Racing slotted clutch cover, carbon fiber front mud guard, Left & right handle bars ST4S) $3037. 85 hours labor @ a shop rate of $100/hour.
I’m actually a bit surprised this auction is already at $8100 in this volatile economy. Even more so that $8100 is reserve not met! Seems like toys are being listed a solid 20% lower than usual, but not today!
