1992 Ducati Superbike 851 Custom for sale on ebay.
You need to read the full ad to understand what this bike is. Located in Tucson, Arizona is a 1992 Ducati 851. Now, the frame defines what make & model a bike is. The Arizona title and registration of this bike states that it is a Ducati 851 however, it is a complete custom bike that has been pieced together from some choice bits. The frame is supposedly a Superbike race frame obtained from Fast By Ferracci with a long dead 851s VIN stamped on it. The engine is from a 2001 996. It has a Ducati Corse fully adjustable shock linkage, a Ducati Corse aluminum fuel tank, custom made F1 two into one exhaust, Ohlins rear shock, 17″ Marchesini five spokes, Showa Gold Nitrade forks, Brembo four-pots, Corbin seat and numerous carbon bits.
It will be interesting to see what this bike will sell for, at this point it’s very hard to value. There are numerous custom 851s but, this one does have some–very possibly legitimate–Corse items; specifically, a titled Superbike frame. What do you think this bike is worth? Is it worth more than a stock bike as it has some very rare bits bolted on or, will it sell for about the same? Custom bikes are very hard to value because: If this were a Fast By Ferracci Superbike race bike, determine a value based on that, and if this was a bone stock 851 we could easily determine a value.
One thing I have no doubt about is that the buyer of this bike needs these parts history verified and documented prior to sale. If a World Superbike frame is what you’re paying for, it needs to be proven. If this bike seems interesting, and it should, .
