Judging from their regular appearance and usual low miles, the green-frame PS1000 is clearly the darling of the Terblanche-styled Sport Classic line-up. Seattle Used Bikes has recently returned this original from display duty and it’s ready for a new rider.
2006 Ducati Paul Smart 1000 Limited Edition
for sale at Seattle Used Bikes
All Sport Classics use the 992cc twin-spark desmodue, hitting the numbers with 92 hp. Beside the blue-green trellis frame, the PS1000 has a monoposto body, retro bullet fairing, and adjustable Öhlins front and rear ( plus steering damper ). The colors harken back to 1974 and the #16 Super Sport 750, and Pirelli even made made their Diablo tires in a retro Phantom tread pattern to match the spoked alloys for the original edition of 2,000.
Most often seen with an aftermarket exhaust as well as some variety of low-profile turn signals, this PS1000 is all stock with no sign of damage or even dirt. Smart of the previous owner to line a brand new ( warranty ) fuel tank to prevent ethanol damage. Evidently the current owner is a collector, who added only a few miles to the 7,600 already there. From the SUB – website –
We just performed a full factory recommend 6000 mile service while paying special attention to anything showing signs of wear or aging. A bit over $2200 was spent making sure everything was right before it moves off to a new owner. The plastic fuel tanks on the Ducati Sport Classic series along with a few other models are known for having issues with the heavily laden ethanol fuel we are forced to deal with in the US. This particular fuel tank was a brand new warranty replacement, from Ducati when the owner purchased the bike 7 years ago. At that time he had it lined with Caswell tank sealer, it was just installed on the bike for the first time when we got it ready to go. The bike is all stock, no modifications.
The number of PS1000LE’s that came stateside is reported in the 1,000 range, making this a pretty rare bird. It’s a long, low ride, which could be helped with bar risers, and even though the fairing won’t allow too much, a half inch can make a big difference. It’s a clean palette for boutique billet and carbon, and fairing lowers are still available. On consignment at $24,000, Dave at SUB can be reached at (206) 535-6812 or by email – here –.
