Modified and Beautiful ’91 Ducati 851


This post is in our archives. Links in this post have been updated to point to similar bikes available to bid on eBay.

Location: Pacific Palisades, CA Mileage: 14,500 Price: Auction

'91 851

91 851

Update 1.7.2013: This 851 failed to meet reserve when first listed last month at $6900 but is now relisted and seller notes a lowered reserve. Links updated. -dc

The Ducati 851 is one beautiful bike, one of the best in the Ducati all time line up. This bike is a stunner in the looks department and seems to have upgrades galore, so should be fun in the riding department too. We don’t believe this to be a factory tri-color, but it’s very well presented anyway!

Here’s the seller’s description with the list of aftermarket goodies-

1991 ducati 851 near perfect condition with lots of hard to find parts:

Giacamoto spaghetti exhaust

high comp pistons

sps cams

light flywheel

barnett clutch

magnesium wheels

white stock wheels available for sale as well

aluminum rear subframe

brembo GP masters

ISR 6 piston calipers

floating rotors

magnesium side case

new battery

sato bars

evoluzione clutch slave cylinder

single seat tail

Approximately 14500 miles, the speedo was disconnected when the new magnesium wheel were mounted about 1000 miles ago. there is also a small scratch on the swingarm that is visible in the pics.

Otherwise the bike is in near perfect condition and remains a well cared for member of a collection of exotic italian sportbikes.

$500 deposit required upon winning the auction, remainder to be paid in person.

Pickup and delivery will be the sole responsibility of the buyer.

Please contact me with any questions that you may have.

And pics-

This thing looks pretty darn clean and depending upon what you like, the parts may or may not please you. The mileage isn’t super high and hopefully maintenance has been done along the way. Not much else to say.

So if an 851 is something you’ve been wanting under the tree, here’s a chance. And just think, after you get it you can ask for Ducati cologne as a stocking stuffer! To make your Christmas wish come true, make the jump!

  • Bang for the buck, this is pretty good. Check the valves, change the belts, map the FI, and have fun. Track down a set up vintage ohlins forks and this thing would be awesome. I’d repaint it all red, as ’91 wasn’t a tricolor year and I never thought looked all that great on these, but that’s just my opinion.
