Low mile Ducati 851 in PA on Craigslist
It might be a 1991 but doesn’t this Ducati still look the business? A reader found this nice example hiding on Craigslist in PA. It has roughly 12,000 miles on it and some tasteful upgrades. The 851 was Ducatis’ first step back into racing dominance and 1991 was the last year of the 851 before the release of the 888. It combined four valve heads, liquid cooling and electronic fuel injection into a package that we still lust after today.
From the seller:
This is the motorcycle that began 20 years of racing success for Ducati. This beautiful RED Duc. has 12K miles, runs perfectly and had recent full service w/belts replaced. Extras incl. GioCaMoto Hi-Exit Carbon pipes, Carbon frt. fender & rear hugger, Ohlins shock, new Mich. Pilot Powers. Aesthetically very good to excellent
Unless there is a flood of these on the market the price sure seems in the ballpark. It is a little below book and who would raise their nose at an Ohlins shock and a couple of carbon bits? Take a look at it here on Craigslist.
Here is a little race action from 92 between Falappa (remember him?) and Fogarty on a couple of 888 you couldn’t buy. Doesn’t it just sound good in Italian?
