Sortalight – 1993 Ducati 900SS Superlight #874

Ducati made a some purely sporting mods to the 904cc Supersport which eliminated the pillion and a added a few lighter components.  A previous owner undid some of the weight savings but this is still a quite original and very good example.

1993 Ducati 900SS Superlight for sale on eBay

With all the goodness built in from the 900SS, the Superlight’s single seat and higher exhaust were the icing on the cake.  Air-cooled 78 hp accompanied improved braking and adjustable Showa suspension bits, and Marvic wheels with aluminum rims married to magnesium hubs reduced mass in the right places.  Carbon mudguards and clutch cover imparted extra lightness.  Sure can’t argue with the race number prep on the tailcone and edition number plaque on the triple tree.  Chrome yellow paint controverted Ducati rosso purists.

With a shade under 30 years and just over 26K miles, this Superlight has a few imperfections, but looks all together and original in places where many aren’t.  Presuming the previous owner wanted wider rear rubber, the next owner will want to keep an eye open for a correct rear wheel to go with new tires.  Notes in the eBay auction wander a bit but hit all the important points –

I’ve had it for a few years and barely rode it, I mainly just stared at it. LOL   This is a beautiful bike and an absolute head turner when it’s out. They are rarely seen out and about.

Here’s the service history since I’ve had it, all work done by one of the great Ducati 900SS experts in the country, Bobby Weindorf. He has extensive experience from working at Pro Italia and as a mechanic and curator for the Moto Talbot collection and more. 

June 2021

  • -Check valve clearances- all good
  • -Install new belts, check tensioners and rollers 
  • -Flush and bleed brakes
  • -Flush and bleed clutch
  • -Replace spark plugs
  • -Clean and adjust carbs, clean jets, clean out idle circuit

June 2022

  • -Disassemble carbs, cleaned all jets
  • -flush front brake system, installed braided steel lines

Fairings are in really great shape and yes they still have the black spongy lining on the inside. I believe this lining is original. This stuff is so brittle it flakes off to the touch, I’m not kidding, it’s a mess when you touch it, but I’m not removing it because I understand some collectors want that intact for originality.

Some of the bolt holes on the seat fairing have “spiderweb” cracks from a prior owner over-tightening. See pics. Common but unfortunate. I’ve seen body/paint shops lightly touch these up to hide them. I’ll leave that up to you.

Tank looks gorgeous, no dents dings or scratches, one very small touch up paint spot.  Probably a few minor nicks here and there, as expected for a 30 year old bike.  The engine/metal parts could use a thorough cleaning with some q-tips and a good cleaner to get into the crevices.

The front wheel is the original Marvic. The rear wheel is not. Previous owner swapped for a wheel off a 1997 916. You may be able to find an original replacement on eBay or overseas, I’ve seen them come up for sale.

Bike fires right up, I mean really fires up! First touch of start button! I’m happy to send you a video.

Probably the Make Offer will get some action on this Superlight, with its miles, recent maintenance and appearance asking for a bit more attention.  Superlight worldwide production looks to have been just over 1,300 in 1992, then a little over half that in 1993-95.  Since the profit engineers stepped in after the first year, earlier bikes are choice.  This example checks a lot of boxes and hopefully the next owner will buff it up to a high lustre.

Back To Our Regular Programing: 1996 Ducati 900SS SuperLight (In UK)

Seems as if the UK has had a couple of really interesting motorcycles come to market recently.  On the heals of a post trying to make a case for a Bimota DB2 over a standard 900SS this SuperLight really complicates the situation. Sure the DB2 is appealing, but is it too niche?  Maybe a Ducati 900SS SuperLight is a better fit.  The SuperLight was to be the ultimate version of the first generation SuperSports.  A light, simple, fun machine.  In the end Ducati created a cult classic from the start.

The single seal SuperLight was treated to more than just a unique numbered plaque on the triple tree.  The special yellow and single seat configuration make the bike pop and stand out.  Some carbon extras reduce weight and increase the visual appeal.  In some markets lighter wheels were used.  Many small details come together to create a wonderful package.  Low production numbers mean that you are unlikely to run into another at the local bike night.

From The Seller’s eBay Listing:

Ducati 900 Superlight MK IV, 1996/N, I’m only the 3rd owner, 42438 miles, MOT 12th June 2022 (Can put full MOT on the bike for new owner), Comes with 2 x original keys, a thick stack of service history (Belts changed at 40974 miles), Carbon cans, clutch cover and front & rear mud guards, Superb to ride, sounds lovely, Great original condition for age & mileage, HPI Clear, Possible part exchange? Collection Norwich, I may be able to deliver, £5250 NO TIME WASTERS as I just don’t have the spare time!!! Genuine bike so only genuine buyers please!!!

With the rise in popularity of all things 90s it is hard to think of a more Rad way to spend 5250 Pounds Sterling.  At the current exchange that price would have buyers lined up around the block in the UK.  One would think that there could not be that much of an imbalance on opposite sides of the pond.  Would love to hear from some of our UK readers on the topic of valuation and comparisons to US based recent sales.  Mileage is a fair bit higher than others that have been listed, but these robust motors are know to last.

1993 Ducati 900SS Superlight MKII For Sale on eBay!

1993 Ducati 900SS Superlight For Sale!

Make: Ducati
Model: 900SS Superlight
Location: Verona, Wisconsin
Mileage: 9,424
Price: $11,700.00

More sticky than a fly strip is this Wisconsin Cheese colored Italian Stallion with a special Ducati Limited Edition brass number plate on the triple clamp.

#865 is up for your Friday viewing pleasure. What do ya’think?

“Son, what’s it gonna take to put you in this yellow solo seat today?”

Whatever the deal is I’d ask for a heat gun, a plastic razor blade, some Goo Gone, isopropyl alcohol wipes and a bottle of Wizards Wax Master to aid in the prompt removal of those go fast stickers. Don’t misunderstand me- I’m a sticker guy through and through, but I never and I mean never put stickers on any painted surface. I know- to each their own!

From the seller
Bike #865 by the tag.
This bike has only 9424 miles on it. In around 2018, the bike received a complete service. New tires, cam belt, valves set, rebuilt carbs, new battery, new fuel pump, changed all fluids. Was tested and then the fuel tank was drained along with the carbs. It was set for storage in climate controlled storage until fall of 2021. The bike received new Interstate battery, change oil & filter, fresh fuel & ran & driven. The tires still have the tips on them.


 

The bike was made to look like the Fast By Ferracci bike of that time. There is a scratch on right silencer. The bike looks to have been tipped over as there are small paint touch up on the left & right lower & upper fairings. The rear seat cowl does have small cracks around the seat mounts as they all do if anyone sat on them.

This Ducati has a K & N air filter & the air box has been modified. The rear sprocket has been changed, but comes with the original. It comes with a set of Carbon Fiber exhaust silencers and a Corbin seat.

I recommend an inspection to make sure this is the bike for you and you know what you will be receiving.

You are welcome to come view the Ducati Suplerlight or even have someone else inspect it.

I can email more pictures of the Ducati. I have many with the body panels off as well as close detail pictures. And I have a quick video of it being ridden.

All things considered, I think this Superlight presents very well. I’d like to see a close up of the scratches from the tip over, but the seller is open to pre-buying inspections. I checked the RSBFS.com way back time machine and the asking price on this one is about the same as they were 15 years ago. In my feeble mind- that seems like a pretty good deal!

Interested? Check out this SuperFly Yellow Ducati here!

Ciao!

Worth Saving – 1993 Ducati 900SS Superlight

1993 Ducati 900SS Superlight on eBay

Ducati900SS_topview

The 900SS falls right in the middle of an interesting period for Ducati.  The SS was subject to years of continuing refinement rather than any dramatic changes, however they were very capable machines by the end.  This 1993 900SS Superlight is perhaps the peak of that refinement.  By this point, it had inherited better brakes from the 851, better Showa suspension, carbon fiber bits all around and a solo seat.  There were only 700 Superlights ever made and reportedly only 300 of them made it to the U.S. so it’s a rare bird for sure.

Ducati900SS_leftside

This one isn’t in the collector condition like some of the ones listed for sale recently, so hopefully that makes the price more attractive for somebody looking for a little bit of a project.  The seller states that this IS a barn find and it needs TLC.  There is some damage to the fairings and tank and I would expect replacements to be all but impossible to find.  Repairing them might be the only option.  However, given the rarity of the Superlight, I think it’s worth saving.  You can read more details from the seller’s auction found here: 1993 Ducati 900SS Superlight on eBay

1 of only 300 imported into the US and number 690 of 700 in the world. Some of these vintage Mk1 Superlights are titled 1992 and some are 1993. This one is a 93, probably because it is a late production bike. 949 original miles, yes nine hundred forty nine miles, maybe the lowest mile Super Light in the country.

This was a modern “Barn Find”, it was covered in a Los Angeles back yard for 18 years, unloved and un-ridden. She is mostly complete and original, the only aftermarket parts are grips, bar-ends, windshield, rear-sets, exhaust hangers, rear sprocket and brake lines. She has all of the Superlight parts still intact: high pipes, carbon fiber front and rear fenders, vented clutch cover, single seat, Mavic wheels and cast iron front rotors.

2 Owner Ducati 900SS Superlight #857

Ducati Superlight for sale

We’ve seen a fair number of 900SS/SL’s this year and in fact we’ve seen this particular bike as recently as November of last year. At the time of that writing it was showing a $10,900 buy-it-now. This time around it has met reserve at $9100 with a little over a day to go. The seller has updated the listing a couple times with additional details and states that this in fact a 1992 model and the wheels came with the bike, making it a MK1 version which has proven more desirable.

from the seller:

This is a very nicely-maintained 1993 Ducati 900 Superlight, #857. It is a very desirable “MK 1” first series Superlight, with the composite Marvic wheels. It has very low miles (5153) and is in very nice original condition. It has a full Fast by Ferraci exhaust and runs smoothly and flawlessly. The paint is only flawed by minor cracking around the seat mounting screws.

A Corbin seat is installed, as are after-market carbon timing belt covers, chain guard, sprocket cover and dash/instrument cover. Original seat, belt covers and sprocket cover come with the bike, as does the original exhaust. This bike came stock with a carbon front fender and rear hugger, which are in excellent condition.

MK 1 Superlights are rare, especially in this condition, with such low mileage.

While many know Nick for his amazing customs, he is also a Ducati specialist. This early Superlight still has all the goodies and also has some nice upgrades that any Supersport enthusiast would appreciate. This example has less than 12k miles and looks stunning to this SS owner.

1993 Ducati Superlight for sale on eBay

$T2eC16d,!y0E9s2S7)LPBSB7gzZZNQ~~60_3

from the seller:

I am offering this collector’s classic in amazing condition including the original owner’s manual and original tool kit. This bike has been extensively gone through mechanically but not restored cosmetically. This bike is #680 of 953 built between 1992 and 1993. One of only two hundred ever imported into the US. These are real numbers not something someone buddy told them over a few beers. Research Ducati Superlight registry online and this will confirm the number as will reading Ian Fallon’s book on the Ducati supersports. This model was only available in yellow in the US and only for one year. The only year superlights were ever available with a white frame, Marvic-Akront magnesium hub with aluminum hoop wheels and lightweight clutch cover. Later years (only available abroad) were only available in the gold frame. They were also downgraded to have the heavier brembo cast aluminum wheels and did not have full floating brembo cast iron rotors. Enough with the history lesson on the Superlight now on to the specifics of this bike.

This bike I purchased recently and have acquired another since then. Cosmetically is have done nothing more than to wash the bike, that’s it! Mechanically I have done the following as the bike sat for over three years from the previous owner.

1. Dissambled the engine to repaint and check neccesary maintenance items an check for deffects,
2. Clutch slave cylinder was rebuilt due to a leak that caused the paint to peel on the engine cover and left side engine case
3. New cam timing belts were installed
4. New later issue Ducati cylinder heavy duty head studs were installed due to the fact that before 1995 the studs were made of satinless and prone to breaking
5. All gaskets ,seals and filters were replaced including base gaskets
6. Valves were adjusted properly and shimmed to manufacturer’s specs
7. All bearings were checked for wear
8. Oil pump was replaced for no other eason than it is 20 years old and why take a chance??

What’s NOT original on the bike??

As I am not the first owner I can only provide you with what I have done or what you see in the pictures.

1. Smoke rear brake lense, I have a stock one That was not available to be at the time these pictures were taken
2. Windscreen was replaced by the previous owner , stock ones are still availabe from Ducati for a cool $163
3. Original Bar end weights were replaced with aftermarket bits from the previous owner
4. Original air fileter was replaced with a BMC unit
5. Crank case breather box was removed and replaced with a K&N breather. I have the originals in a box with the correct breather hoses and clamps
6. Ferracci decals on the side panels were applied by the previous owner because the bike had a ferracci exhaust which he kept to apply to another Ducati
7.Clutch and brake lines were replaced with aftermarket steel braided units by the previous owner
8. Tank breather check valve hose was replaced with a yellow unit, I also have the originals in a box and bagged so they do not dry rot
9. There is a very nice support that one of the previous owners built for the rear seat section so it would not crack. And it worked!
10. Obviously the tires are not original but I highly recommend that the new owner replaces them as they are over 5 years old

I have taken extensive picture of any of the work I have performed and I am more than willing to share those with any interested parties. I also have documentation of the previous purchase from the former owner including the following.

1. Sales order from the dealer
2. Auto Tarder ad showing teh sale price when he bought it in 2001 previous to that it was owner by the dealer who sold it as a personal bike
3. Paper tag issued at that sale
4. Original owner’s manual in good condition
5. Original tool kit

All the work was performed by me. A short history of who I am can be found on the internet by searching my ebay screen name. I have built countless custom bikes, my work has been featured in over 100 magazine articles internationally, televison as well as having guest wirtten tech articles for motorcycle magzines in the past 16 years .

More Super Lightness: 1993 Ducati 900SS Superlight MK1

sl right sl tach

It’s apparently time to sell yellow Super Lights this month.  Number 827 is currently looking for a new garage to call home.  This one has a Canadian accent and has been breathed on a bit.

What’s the story you ask?

Up for sale is my Limited Edition 1993 900SS Superlight Mk1.  Bike # 827 out of 952 units produced worldwide with only 300 sent to the USA.  This is the geniune article and the most desirable of the Superlight that came to North America.  Only the Mk 1 bikes came with a full spectrum of upgrades directly from the factory that include full floating Cast Iron front disc brakes, Two piece Marvic/Akront 17″ Rims, Vented Clutch Cover, Carbon Fibre Front Mudguard and Rear Hugger, Carbon Fibre Slip-On Exhaust.  In addition to these very desirable factory exotic parts, the motor on this bike has been upgraded with High Compression 944 Big Bore Pistons fueled by a pair of Kehin flat side Smooth Bore Carbs.  Ohlin Front Fork Springs, Ohlin Steering Damper, Oberon Clutch slave Cylinder, Upgraded Master Cylinders with Aluminum Caps, Billet Aluminum Rearsets, Carbon Fibre Dash, Leather Corbin Seat, Zero Gravity Tinted Windshield, brand new Prirelli Corsa Tires and much more.

This is a bike that has been totally sorted out with an impressive array of performance upgrades and improvements over the stock bike.  This bike rewards riders who appreciates mechanical perfection; you would want to ride this one and not just admire her beauty.  The body work on the bike is a 9.5 out of 10 and the bike has been maticulously maintained and tuned.  This is the fastest air cooled 900SS I have ever ridden and she runs, sounds and handles as good as she looks.

sl left

Help me out Ducatists;  I keep reading that only the 1992 (MK1) Superlights had the cast iron brakes, vented clutch cover and two piece Marvics yet it seems every 93 (MK2) I see has them as well.  Did North America get them a year late?

sl engine

Hmm, it doesn’t weigh much at all and it has  more go compared to stock.  That should make for a lot of smiles on a twisting road.

sl right rear

Sign me up;  a limited edition, light weight, some extra go and classic Ducati styling.

Check out the auction here.

1993 Ducati 900SS Superlight #802 For Sale!

Richmond, VA – 4,263m – Currently $3,500 No Reserve 

93900SSSL_1

I have said it before, and I will say it again; seeing a yellow Ducati with a white frame is like an ice cold beer on a hot day. Refreshing. Ducati has a knack for releasing limited edition bikes, and the Superlight is one of the coolest. The SL’s featured more carbon fiber bits, and Marvic aluminum/magnesium wheels to help bring the bikes weight down. They were also one of the first Ducati’s to be given the numbered plaque on the triple clamp.

93900SSSL_11

This SS/SL is number 802 of the bunch and has some interesting qualities about it. First of all, bar risers are now installed, however the original clip-ons come with the sale. The same goes for the up-toothed rear sprocket (original included). Also the swingarm had cracked at the pivot point, but has since been repaired. Corbin seat looks good and keeps it comfy.

93900SSSL_2

From the seller:

I am the second owner. I purchased the bike from the original owner in Vermont. Bike was purchased in 2003 with 3,049 miles. It now has 4,263 original miles. The tires were installed in 2003. The bike has a Corbin seat that was on it when I purchased it. The bike has heli bar risers and I have the original clip-ons. Rear sprocket is 39 teeth; I have the original 37 sprocket. It has the stock mufflers. The carburetors have a Factory Pro jet kit installed and I have the dyno readout. The swing arm cracked at the pivot shaft and has been repaired. Bike came with the 1992 two piece Marvic wheels. No frame cracks at steering head or anywhere else. All numbers match. No reserve, title is clear. I can take additional specific pictures if interested. Buyer will have to arrange shipping.

We have seen these go for the $6-$7k+ range given the condition and miles. The nice thing about this bike is that it is mostly stock and/or can be returned so fairly easily. The Marvic’s are still present and the exhaust is stock. This auction has No Reserve, so it’s going to sell. I will be keeping an eye on this one for sure. Jump on over to the auction here!
