2002 Ducati MH900 on ebay

Check out this 2002 Ducati MH900 with only 3 miles on eBay!

That's right only 3 miles and this thing looks to be better kept than most house pets. Located in Suffolk, VA this MH900 looks to be all its said to be and then some. These bikes are a perfect blend of classic looks with modern sport bike amenities. Originally, sold on the internet only, these sold out very quickly during their first production run. If my memory serves me correctly it was within hours of going on sale. I'm sure some of you will let me know that the 02's aren't as collectable as the 2000 model year, but this one only has 3 miles on the clock!! Only 3 miles!!! There I said it again. These types of low mileage bikes always seem to amaze me. They amaze me that the owners had enough self control to go out and spend thousands of dollars on a piece of rare Italian art and not even take it around the block 2 times. It simply amazes me to no end.... Enough babbling about my inability to understand the mind set of a collector. Here's what they have to say.

"Mike Hailwood" edition 2002 Ducati. This is a numbered series and is bike #1740 of 2000. Only 200 of these bikes were imported into the U.S. I hav all the books, plaques and even the tee shirt (unworn) that came with the bike new. It has a Vermont title( clear) from the original owner.

I would have at the very least been pimping around in the T-shirt hoping someone would ask me "do you own a MH900?"

Right now I only have one picture of the bike. Its in the house and that's where it's always been.

I tried to research what these originally sold for when new, but had no luck. The owner is asking That seems a little high based on the other 2002's we've posted on RSBFS, but with only 3 miles on the clock it will fetch a premium price.

I found this really cool looking MH900 on Youtube that has been chromed out in a sick way. It has Termi's on it and it sounds wicked when he takes off. Give it a look as I think you'll enjoy it.

Cheers!

Update on Bay Area Collection For Sale

Here is an update from Rory on the remaining inventory in the collection -- with pictures!

Update 1.20.10: I got another update from Rory, and he tells me the RC45 and 888 are both sold now.

We've been a bit surprised by the great response through your site and been scrambling a bit to keep up with the inquiries. Invariably, people have been asking for details on bikes that we haven’t pulled out of storage to work on. And, as you already know, a real enthusiast from the East Coast struck a deal for 5 of the bikes, redirecting our focus for a time. A fellow drove up from LA on Christmas Eve to take the Ducati F1, and we have someone coming from Reno today to look at the Honda RC45.

We've at least rolled all the remaining bikes out to take photos and determine general condition and mileage. Anyone can contact us directly for more info.

Here is what is remaining as of January 5th:

’04 Benelli Tornado Tre - This bike has only 2 miles showing on the odometer and looks as though it has never been on the road.

’00 MV F4 - 426 miles The VIN# on this bike ends with 100000. While we can’t be absolutely sure, I spoke with someone at MV USA who believes that this probably the first F4 in the country.

’98 Ducati 916 SPS - 6059 miles. I’ve ridden this one around the block – great bike.

’93 Ducati 888 SPO - 2031 miles. Next on our list to get running.

’06 Yamaha R1 Rossi replica - 17 miles.

’06 Yamaha R1 Special Edition – 0 miles. No photo, but it’s the traditional Yamaha yellow and black paint scheme.

’99 Yamaha R7 OW02 - 3646 km.

’94 Honda RC45 - 3718 miles. Has two 1” diameter paint scuffs on side and rear panels but otherwise good shape. This bike is running now.

’72 Norton 810 Dunstall - 1983 miles. A very nice example and also now running.

Please contact Rory at vtauto@sbcglobal.net for further information about the remaining bikes available for sale in the collection. I'm still tempted to get a second mortgage and get a big trailer for most of them!

If you have a special bike or collection that needs attention, email us at web@raresportbikesforsale.com. We'd be happy to consider your submission for regular posting, or we can provide a feature service for a small fee that will promote the listing on every page of our site.

2008 Ducati 1098R #98 of 450

I always drift off to Ducati fantasy land when I find one of these for sale... Visions of Stoner rolling on the throttle coming out of turn 4 at IMS, and lifting the front wheel. Wishful thinking I could have been on the back of the D16RR with Randy Mamola going 200 mph on the front straight or me posing for the post hot lap photo

But, then reality sets in and I realize I'm stuck with my 1989 FZR 400. Nonetheless, If your in the market for a pristine, broken in by the book 1098R this is your lucky day. Take a look at the photos I've imported and then and check out the rest. This is one BAD AZZ bike screaming to be bought and then promptly flogged on the track. Would I take it to the track? Damn Skippy I would because if I could properly afford one of these I would have two! 1 for show and one to trash at the track.

New/Used 2008 Ducati 1098R with 369 total miles. The 1098R model has all the goodies including carbon fiber bodywork, full race Termignoni exhaust, hand built sand cast engine, Marchesini forged aluminum wheels, slipper clutch, carbon fiber and magnesium parts everywhere, traction control, the list goes on and on. The bike is 1098R stock, except for a Motowheels clutch cover and CRG quick adjustment levers. This bike is #98 of 450 made. The auction includes the bike, set of keys, data port analyzer and a CD service manual. The serial number is: ZDM1XBHW58B015439. I purchased this bike new from Salt Lake Motorsports in 2008. After the purchase, I had Salt Lake Motorsports break it in on the dyno as advised from Ducati, 50 miles. After that I rode the bike two times to my house and back to the dealership where it currently sits on display (total of 369 miles, 50 of which are from the dyno break in). The bike has been on display for the past year. It sits on a display box, with a battery tender and is started occasionally to keep the seals wet. This bike has NOT been titled. I have the original clean title from Salt Lake Motorsports in hand. I never registered the bike as my plan was to keep it as a collector’s bike. The warranty is still active on the bike until 05/23/10. This bike is absolutely spotless. There are no scratches, tank rash, fall-overs, etc. You can see in the close-up photo of the tires, the nipples and writing are still intact.

Since the owner didn't leave much for to say about the bike all I can say is does it get any better for a Super Bike fan, than a sexy beast in a blood red cloak?

Cheer!

1993 Ducati 900 Superlight

Ducati 900 Superlight located on the Long Island, NY Craigslist, that is part of a larger collection and might even be part of the same collection that Alex posted up a few days ago. These mid 90's Ducati's are moving up on my list of "bikes to own", but this one is probably out of my reach for now (or later). This one only has 1,000 miles on the clock and has a hefty $13,300.00 price tag, but considering the condition could be worth every penny. Dan is a big fan of these and usually post up every Superlight he sees, but since I needed to get on the board this month, I couldn't bring myself to pass it over to him 😉

The owner didn't elaborate much on this bike or his other collection pieces that he is looking to move, but did kindly list his phone number for any would be buyers. So if you were expecting a Ducati 900 Superlight decked out in "look at me" Yellow and didn't find it under the tree; jump on over to CL and give this one a look. It looks like a Million bucks!

Happy New Year!

Private Collection in New Jersey

I haven't see this website before but, Motorcycles For Sale Classic, is apparently a broker for a collection of motorcycles out of New Jersey.  It looks to have been recently updated but has some obvious errors--make sure to contact the seller by phone to confirm anything on their site.  Anyhow, these are some of the bikes that are still available that I found interesting:

  • 1977 MV Agusta 850SS with 1,791 original miles.
  • 1977 Ducati 900SS with 2,500 original miles.
  • 1986 Suzuki GSX-R750 Limited Edition with 2,358 original miles (Vance & Hines exhaust fitted).
  • 1985 Suzuki RG500 with 385 original miles.
  • Yamaha TZR250 with 22,245 miles.
  • 1984 Yamaha RD500 with 31,600 miles.
  • A second Yamaha RD500 with less miles.
  • Aprilia RS250 with 610 original miles.
  • 1995 Cagiva Mito.

These aren't all the bikes listed on the site--and more appear in the background of photos--but again, I would caution anyone against acting too quickly.  The website listed features errors and older dates but, I haven't seen these photos featured anywhere else and they all look to be correct and from the same location.  Titles and registration isn't mentioned and only a few bikes have asking prices.  Regardless, take a look at the site as it may be an undiscovered mine!
