1992 Ducati 900ss Black on White!

I’ll admit it….. I had to ask Dan if this was, in fact, a rare Ducati worth posting. And for all of our Ducati fans who already know about these, Dan’s answer was an astounding “YES!”; of course, he attached the “only if it’s real” disclaimer. But, you can be the judge as to the authenticity of this Ducati.

162345

Quotes from the seller:

This Duck is unmolested less a couple modifications I made when purchased new “yes I purchased this bike new in 1991.” I have been told that today as few as 3 and as many as 13 of the Black on White Café Racers exist. What I do know for certain this is the best example with the lowest miles.

This beauty has a starting bid of $3,000 and a B.I.N price of $8,900. I checked our archives and couldn’t find any “Cafe Racer” 900ss listed. I’m not that familiar with these, but the BIN price is as high as anything we’ve posted in the past. I would love to hear some comments to back up what the seller is stating and that there are only 13 of these in the world? That seems to be far fetched considering they are only asking $8,900. I would have to believe if there were only 13 of any Ducati in the world the price would considerably higher.

1996 Ducati 900 SP #973 of 1000

 900ss sp #973 of 1000 on

2

13

I know we’ve had several SP’s recently, but here is another one for everyone to drool over. 

  • 1996 Ducati 900SS SP # 973 0f 1000 made. Bike is showroom mint with only 5451 miles.   Always stored in a heated garage.
  • All steel braided lines for brakes and clutch.
  • Brand new Pirelli Corsa tires.
  • Micron exhaust.
  • K&N modified air box.
  • New mikuni carbs with stage one jet kit.
  • Black hollow spoke Brembo wheels.
  • Oil cooling jets for pistons.
  • Full floating front brakes.
  • I have the factory exhaust the tools and stands all included in auction.

 
This one has a very low 5451 on the clock and has some very nice mods.  I am particularly fond of the black Brembo wheels on this one.  The seller has saved the stock parts, tool kit and rear stand which is always nice when considering a purchase of a limited production bike.  At $9,250 it seems to be a fair price, but having just completed a check of previous 900SS posts on RSBFS they might be hanging on this one for a while.  It seems the market won’t support the asking prices of most SP owners.  I’ve seen several stall around 5 – 6k this year.

1998 Ducati 900SS FE – bargain!

Before you check out this Ducati, please welcome Phil to Rare Sport Bikes For Sale as this is his first post. He has been a subscriber and regular with site submissions — so much so that I had to just invite him to contribute directly when I couldn’t keep up with his emails anymore! He’s a big time Bimota fan and is blogging from Hong Kong for us, which I think is extra cool. Welcome aboard Phil!

Hi, it’s my first post contributing to RSBFS, so if I made any boo-boos, please bear with me.  So, with that out of the way…what we have here is a nice example of a for sale on eBay.

The FE stands for “Final Edition”, the last batch of monoposto air-cooled super sports before the new injected version. There are only 800 of these world wide, with 300 of them for the US market.  FE’s share similar running gear to earlier Superlights with higher exhaust, carbon bits, and single seat.  Each FE has a number metal plaque on the top triple clamp and this one is #283.

Here’s what the seller has to say:

DUCATI 900 SUPERSPORT FE #283

Bike comes with: FULL RAISED EXHAUST SYSTEM (ALSO HAVE THE ORIGINAL EXHAUST SYSTEM) , DUC PERFORMANCE STEERING DAMPER, BRAIDED BRAKE LINES.

Very low reserve………………The bike is EXCELLENTE CONDITIONS!!! Real awsome RIDE!

CRATING, SHIPPING and DELIVERY to any US STATES (Except Alaska and Hawaii) for only $450.00.

New tittle from DUCATI NA, bike has never registered …MSO.”

FEs have been averaging around 5500, so this one at 3500 is an absolute steal!  The bike looks clean and have some aftermarket bits on it as well – someone would be very happy with this (I know I would be)!

Two Nice Ducati’s to Wake Up To: 851 Strada and 900 SuperLight

I can’t say I’ve ever seen a Strada for sale in the U.S. before. Check out this (21k miles, $1050 reserve not met with 5 days to go):

Ducati 851 Strada For Sale

quote from the eBay listing:

This 1991 Ducati 851 Strada bike is 1 of 225 imported. It is a strickly stock bike except for the Corbin seat and stainless steel braided brake lines ( both nice improvements!) It is in EXCELLENT condition for age( marks here and there, a “6 footer” ); REVS, RUNS AND RIDES beautifully! I really hate to let this great bike go.

–> ONLY 21, 660 miles! DESMOQUATTRO ENGINE STARTS, RUNS, and REVS LIKE NEW! This year 851 Ducati is one of the best in many ways: Ohlins front and Showa rear; both fully adjustable! Had 20,000 mile service. Electrical systems work fine. Clutch is typical Ducati. Tires are in good shape also! It is an Italian bike and rides like one; stiff but ready to rock and roll when necessary. At a stop light or parked, always gets noticed.

In some ways more fun to ride than later Ducati Sportbikes! ( at a fraction of the cost!)

And here’s a sexy yellow (19k miles, $4k reserve not met with 4 days to go):

Ducati 900 SS/SL Superlight For Sale

quote from seller’s listing:

1993 Ducati 900 SS/SL Superlight

* Superb condition. Runs beautifully.
* 19,059 miles.
* BCM 944 kit
* High-tensile head studs
* Recent valve job
* New battery.
* Marchesini wheels
* Dunlop Sportmax tires – 170/60 ZR17 rear, 120/70 ZR17 front

* Original mufflers
* Original saddle
* Eclipse touring bag
* Tank bra
* Weather-proof cover

The one thing that strikes me about both bikes is that they’ve been ridden, and I applaud that! Two exceptional enthusiast rides that deserve to be ridden even more!

Black on White 1995 Ducati 900SS

The factory black and white Ducati 900SS is a very rare combination and highly sought after because it’s a dead sexy combination hardly ever seen in the wild. Unfortunately it seems only the 1992 model received that treatment from what I can research. Nonetheless, it looks very well looked after and worth a look for $4300. It’s in Everett, Washington on Craigslist:

black-on-white-Ducati-900ss-for-sale

quote from seller’s Craigslist posting:

1995 Ducati 900 SS/SP in very good conditio with 10961 miles. Within the last 1500 miles it has had new tires, chain and sprockets, belts, tune up, carb cleaning, clutch cylinder rebuild, and oil and filter change. The only thing that might need attention is the rear brake that squeals at low speeds.
I’ve desided I need a bike with a more upright riding position, so I’m putting this one up for sale.

1993 Ducati 900SS SuperLight #661

Located in Miami, Florida is a 1993 Ducati 900SS SuperLight with 13,591 miles.  This is a two owner bike with new tires, timing belts, battery and fitted with Marvic wheels.  Bike was sitting for some time and looks like it could use some clean up to become quite nice.  Seller states it has some minor scratches and cracks to the bodywork.

1993 Bimota DB2 in San Fran for $10999

I thought Alex had found all sweet Bimotas for sale in the country in last month’s Bimota Friday post. But this one looks like a fresh addition. A 1993 Bimota DB2 on San Francisco Craigslist:

1993 Bimota DB2 For Sale in San Francisco

quote from seller’s listing:

Rare offer- 1993 DB2 Bimota-Mint condition. Red and white- full faring. Adult owned and professionally maintained. Many mods.
Only 1800+ miles. Never in an accident or dropped.

The Bimota DB2 borrows the Ducati 900SS running gear of the same era, but that frame, bodywork, and trick suspension isn’t! I’m pretty sure that gauge cluster is the exact same one in my 750SS though!

Read an excellent summary of the Bimota DB2 on motorcyclespecs.co.za
