2002 Ducati 998S Ben Bostrom Replica For Sale!

2002 Ducati 998S Ben Bostrom 155 Edition For Sale!

Make: Ducati
Model: 998s Bostrom
Mileage: 1,487
Price: $17,777 current bid on BAT w/ 4 days remaining

As you may have guessed by now, #102 of 155 is for sale and looking pretty Evel.

The Bostrom 998s is pretty much the Ducati pinnacle for me. I’m not quite sure how it arrived at the top, but if I had to guess, I’d say it’s my love for all things Evel Kneivel and my fond memories of watching Ben letting his 998’s move around underneath him during heavy braking (see video).


This one looks to be in amazing condition and appears to be coming from a nice collection of all things gas powered. 102 does have some slight modifications, but all are period correct and shouldn’t distract from this one being worthy of any collection. A few of the BAT followers noted it has slip-on Termi’s, a carbon clutch cover and heel guards. Again, nothing crazy or too personalized.

The Bostrom 998s received upgraded Ohlins at both the front and rear and came equipped with some very tasty carbon fiber fairings. I’ve poured over all of the images and can’t find any blemishes to speak of.

I know I’m getting long in the tooth, but it’s hard to believe these are 20 years old :sadface: However, this one has been well taken care of and is looking for a new home.

Make the jump here and place your bid!

If you buy this and plan on riding it you may want to pick up a matching Suomi Bostrom replica. I’m guessing since Ben is with Shoei, Suomi can no longer call it a “Bostrom”

Ciao!

2002 Ducati 998 B Boz edition for sale!

2002 2002 Ducati 998

Location: Ellington,CT
Mileage: 4292
Price: $7,414.00 current bid with no reserve!

Yes sir-ee Bob! No reserve on the coolest LE Ducati ever made. How about that for your Saturday morning alert from your buds at RSBFS.com? Okay, so maybe it’s not the coolest LE from Bologna for some, but for me it ROCKS!


It would have been nice if Ducati could have made it a little closer to the L&M factory racer, but as it sits it’s a cool looking machine. We’ve beat the facts on these too death on RSBFS.com, but for those that aren’t familiar with the Bostroms some of the highlights include:

– Ohilns front and rear
– B Boz signature on the tank
– More carbon fiber than Phil’s shop in China
– Kewl Evel Knievelesque graphics

WIN or FAIL?? Either way, you can and get in on the action.

2002 Ducati 998s Ben Bostrom LE #25 of 155

Bostrom Ducati 998s #25 of 155 is available for the taking.

I am a huge Boz Bros fan and this just happens to be my favorite Ducati racer replica. It would have been even sweeter had they offered it in the true L&M design, but these are still sweet. I enjoyed watching Ben the most when he raced for NCR Ducati.

He seemed much looser and just happy to be there with no pressure to win because he wasn’t on the Corse factory team. But then L&M happened and he ripped off 5 wins in a row (so much for the NCR deal), which no one ever expected him to do being on the 3rd Corse team with Dunlops under him. In their prime Ben and Eric both were tenatious competitors when they had confidence in their machinery. I really enjoyed watching Eric on the Kawasaki the most, but I’ll save that story for another post. One of the stupid reasons I like Ben is because he liked Evil Knievel almost as much as me 🙂 Godspeed Evil…..

Here are the pictures of #25 for sale on the San Fran Craigslist.

Limited Edition, #25 of 155
Bostrom Autographed bike and matching autographed helmet
5242 miles, EXCELLENT CONDITION
Ready to ride or show,
$10,500, entertaining offers

I found this tidbit of info on the net.

One hundred and fifty-five Bostrom replica 998Ss will be built for North America, all signed on the tank by Ben Bostrom himself, and fitted with carbon-fiber bodywork, an Ohlins fork instead of the usual Showa, and the good four-pad Brembo front calipers, for only $22,695!

With an asking price of $10,500 and offers being considered I like this 998s considering the above listed upgrades it received from Ducati. If I had the $10g’s lying around I’d probably already own it and I would have an Evil Knievel suit to go along with it in true Ben style. Throw in a Suomy Bostrom replica helmet and I’d be set. I guess I hope these are still around when I do have a few thousand to toss around so I can pick one up.

Did anyone else have one of those Evil Knievel crank motorcycles that would do wheelies and jump the ramp that you got with it?

Heres a video of Ben from back in the day aboard the L&M Ducati. I would marvel at how he would let the bike move around under him. If you’ve never witnessed it, check it out as it is a must see to appreciate kind of thing.

Cheers!
