Always a very limited edition, Ducati’s Paul Smart 1000 celebrated a race win with a retro design.  Today’s example is barely broken in, has just a couple of farkles, and is signed in two places.

2006 Ducati PS1000LE for sale on eBay

Ducati’s entrant into the nostalgia sweepstakes used the new air-cooled dual spark engine, displacing 992cc’s and pushing 92 ponies.  Marelli fuel injection ensured smooth running under any conditions, and 320mm cross-drilled brakes guarantee stopping in short order.  The trellis frame is finished in a blue-green metallic, with the gold Öhlins suspension providing a gold accent.  The long tank stretches the rider from single seat to low clip-ons, calling for the open road rather than cross-town traffic.

This Orlando PS1000 shows immaculate, with just a tank protector and exhaust megaphones that only look longer than the factory setup.  No word on maintenance, so belts and tires might want replacement, if you’re going to ride.  Notes from the eBay auction:

#837 0f 2,000 Paul Smart motorcycles made worldwide.
This motorcycle is factory original, except the exhaust.
The motorcycle has been signed by Paul Smart on both the Gas Tank and Tail Section.
This is a very clean bike, worthy of any collection.
The bike has 702 original miles currently, may increase by 1 or 2 miles during sale.

Always reviewed as somewhat more oriented toward the show than the ride, the PS1000LE may have passed out of riding-limited-edition to collector-only status, though any shopper smarting at the ask should follow the next 1974 750SS Paul Smart replica auction.  But if you’re pockets are the right depth for a nearly new, signed PS, this one fills that bill beautifully.

  • Great bike. If anyone’s interested the exhaust system is a Keihin, made in the UK. The megaphone design is not overly loud but does create a very unique sound. However unless the bike has a performance ECU it will not run well.

  • 30K!?!?!? dude. Seriously.

  • @Jim come on guy didn’t you know this is a Ducati man. And it is numbered no less. And it has a signature in two places with a genuine sharpie. Plus the real kicker, it has low miles because it is no fun to ride.

  • Yeah man, and it is like 10 times cheaper than the real thing. And who doesn’t want something ten times cheaper than the real thing?

  • “Plus the real kicker, it has low miles because it is no fun to ride.” You have obviously never ridden one, uncomfortable yes but an absolute blast to ride. I know, I own one. Mine’s signed as well, met Paul Smart at Barber a few years back. He rode his at the track and was an absolute joy to talk to.

  • Toss out all that grey plastic, respray the tank, make a new seat from a desk chair back support, chop a foot off those cans and you’ll have a nice, light cafe racer!

  • “@Jim come on guy didn’t you know this is a Ducati man. And it is numbered no less. And it has a signature in two places with a genuine sharpie. Plus the real kicker, it has low miles because it is no fun to ride.”

    LOL. What about the certificate of authenticity? Surely it has that too? And a Marti report?

  • Uncomfortable and a blast to ride??!! Hmm. I will pass.
    Wouldn’t mind meeting the man with the sharpie though :+)
