On the Dotted Line – 2007 Ducati PS1000LE Paul Smart

Warning!

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

One could say that the vintage craze has crested, but the ground-breaking Ducati SportClassics are still more popular than when they were introduced. The Paul Smart commemorative is the pick of the litter and this signed example is spotless with low miles and recent maintenance.

2007 Ducati PS1000LE Paul Smart for sale on eBay

Using the now-classic DS1000 air-cooled engine, the Ducati SportClassic foretold the retro market that followed shortly.  The fuel-injected L-twin was good for 92 pretty reliable horsepower.  The Paul Smart wears the blue-green frame and silver fairing of the original 1974 Super Sport 750, and this one has the desirable fairing lowers.  Mechanically, the PS is pure oughties, with adjustable Ohlins and 320mm Brembo front brakes.  The monoposto seat keeps the rider focused on the task at hand.

 

Holed up for the winter in Boise, this LE is super-sharp with only 1250 miles.  Upgrades include Termignoni exhaust and LED brake and front signal lights.  Planning for the worst case, it comes with a spare fuel tank in case of swelling.  Again thinking ahead, the seat fairing was clear-coated after being signed by Paul Smart.  From the eBay auction:

-One-Off LED fleda brake light. 
-Flush mount blinkers 
-Paul Smart’s Signature. (I have a photo of him signing the cowling). 
-The cowling was signed with a paint pen and then was professionally cleared coated. 
-Termignoni full exhaust and ECU. Dealer installed. 
-Lower #16 fairings. 
-I have ALL the stock parts including the exhaust and ECU to put this back to its factory original setting. 

 

For the rider, the flexible DS1000 powertrain and adjustable suspension are reigned in by the low clip-ons and monoposto seat.  Likely a little too nice to ride much, this PS1000LE seems destined for a collection.  It has a little of everything – reference to racing heritage, great retro colors, modern ( but vintage looking  ) mechanicals, and a brilliant design by Pierre Terblanche perfectly executed by the factory.  Hoping the reserve isn’t too far over the horizon…

  • Gorgeous bike and nice upgrades.

    Shame about the seller’s poor eBay rating, especially with regard to misrepresenting the condition of the bike in a previous sale.
