Nick Anglada, of Black Label Meccanica is offering this 1993 Ducati 900 Superlight. This example has been mechanically sorted by Nick and is ready for the next riding season. Note I said riding season and not permanent storage in your man cave. This example has over 33k miles, and while it has some wear that is pointed out in the pictures, overall it represents far better than the odometer would suggest. It’s also a first year Superlight, so it has the white frame and trick Marvic wheels that are absent on later model year Superlights. Best of all, most SL’s we see available on the market now are over $10k. Nick has wisely priced his bike at $8,995 and I expect it won’t last long.

We’d like to thank Nick for helping to support the site with a Feature Listing, and good luck to buyers and seller!

awefwafwscv

from the seller:

I am offering this collector’s classic in amazing survivor condition including the original owner’s manual and original tool kit. This bike has been extensively gone through mechanically but not restored cosmetically. This bike is #778 of 953 built between 1992 and 1993. One of only THREE hundred ever imported into the US. research Ducati Superlight registry online and this will confirm the number as will reading Ian Fallon’s book on the Ducati supersports. This model was only available in yellow in the US and only for one year. The only year superlights were ever available with a white frame, Marvic-Akront magnesium hub with aluminum hoop wheels and lightweight clutch cover. Later years (only available abroad) were only available in the gold frame. They were also downgraded to have the heavier brembo cast aluminum wheels and did not have full floating brembo cast iron rotors. Enough with the history lesson on the Superlight now on to the specifics of this bike.

This bike I purchased last July and have acquired interest in other bikes since then. Cosmetically is have done nothing more than to wash the bike, that’s it! This superlight does have some cosmetic flaws as shown in the pics more detailed pics are available on our facebook page or by email. Mechanically I have done the following as the bike sat for over for almost a year from the previous owner.

1. Clutch slave cylinder was rebuilt due to a leak
2. New cam timing belts were installed
3. All filters were replaced and oil was changed
4. Valves were adjusted properly and shimmed to manufacturer’s specs
5. Most of the hardware was replaced with new yellow zinc plated hardware as they were from the factory
6. Had the carbs serviced by the dealer and the bike tuned. tank was drained and treated before instaling a new fuel pump and filter. Fresh fuel just added on 12/30/14.
7. new SpeedCell battery (lithium) instaled04/01/15

What’s NOT original on the bike??

As I am not the first owner I can only provide you with what I have done or what you see in the pictures.

1. Original handlebars were replaced with Helibar risers
2. Original air filter was replaced with a K&N unit
3.Clutch and brake lines were replaced with aftermarket steel braided units by the previous owner
4. Obviously the tires are not original but I highly recommend that the new owner replaces them as they are over 3 years old

7. carbon fenders are either aftermarket ot have been recently refinished

Ducati Superlight for sale

We’ve seen a fair number of 900SS/SL’s this year and in fact we’ve seen this particular bike as recently as November of last year. At the time of that writing it was showing a $10,900 buy-it-now. This time around it has met reserve at $9100 with a little over a day to go. The seller has updated the listing a couple times with additional details and states that this in fact a 1992 model and the wheels came with the bike, making it a MK1 version which has proven more desirable.

Ducati Superlight for sale on eBay

$_63543

from the seller:

This is a very nicely-maintained 1993 Ducati 900 Superlight, #857. It is a very desirable “MK 1” first series Superlight, with the composite Marvic wheels. It has very low miles (5153) and is in very nice original condition. It has a full Fast by Ferraci exhaust and runs smoothly and flawlessly. The paint is only flawed by minor cracking around the seat mounting screws.

A Corbin seat is installed, as are after-market carbon timing belt covers, chain guard, sprocket cover and dash/instrument cover. Original seat, belt covers and sprocket cover come with the bike, as does the original exhaust. This bike came stock with a carbon front fender and rear hugger, which are in excellent condition.

MK 1 Superlights are rare, especially in this condition, with such low mileage.

This bike I purchased recently and have acquired another since then. Cosmetically is have done nothing more than to wash the bike, that’s it! Mechanically I have done the following as the bike sat for over three years from the previous owner.

1. Dissambled the engine to repaint and check neccesary maintenance items an check for deffects,
2. Clutch slave cylinder was rebuilt due to a leak that caused the paint to peel on the engine cover and left side engine case
3. New cam timing belts were installed

3. Original Bar end weights were replaced with aftermarket bits from the previous owner
4. Original air fileter was replaced with a BMC unit
5. Crank case breather box was removed and replaced with a K&N breather. I have the originals in a box with the correct breather hoses and clamps
6. Ferracci decals on the side panels were applied by the previous owner because the bike had a ferracci exhaust which he kept to apply to another Ducati
7.Clutch and brake lines were replaced with aftermarket steel braided units by the previous owner
8. Tank breather check valve hose was replaced with a yellow unit, I also have the originals in a box and bagged so they do not dry rot
9. There is a very nice support that one of the previous owners built for the rear seat section so it would not crack. And it worked!
10. Obviously the tires are not original but I highly recommend that the new owner replaces them as they are over 5 years old

I have taken extensive picture of any of the work I have performed and I am more than willing to share those with any interested parties. I also have documentation of the previous purchase from the former owner including the following.

SuperClean SuperLight: 1993 Ducati 900SS/SL

Carmel Valley, CA – 5,045mi – $16,800 OBO

 93900SL_2

The Ducati 900SS/Superlight is one of my favorite Ducati’s. It not the fastest Ducati ever built, or even the lightest for that matter. It is however one of the best looking with its bright yellow paint and white frame. It is just really hard to beat that combination. And it did seem to thrown gas on the fire of the ever-unlimited limited edition craze for the Italian manufacture. The SL’s featured more carbon fiber bits, and Marvic aluminum/magnesium wheels to help bring the bikes weight down. They were also one of the first Ducati’s to be given the numbered plaque on the triple clamp.

93900SL_10

The seller highlights everything you need to know:

If you collect and respect the history of Italian Brands and pure Italian Design you would have to say that the limited edition production of the Ducati 1993 Superlight has to been one of those watershed moments in classic Italian Motorcycle design.

Manufactured to celebrate one of their greatest sport models, only produced in 1993. There were a total of 952 units produced for worldwide sale. Only 300 were sent to the United States… This is number 669and is a perfect factory example of this icon bike.

Characterize by its competition Yellow Body Work, White Frame, Special Carbon Fiber Parts, Two-piece Marvic/Akront 17” Rims. The only period upgrade made to this perfect motorcycle is the period correct Ferracci exhaust. This high performance exhaust system adds the perfect deep and throaty sound that this bike was meant to have, verses the large oversized, heavy and bland sounding USA mandated mufflers.

Historically these bikes have been so over-ridden and modified that they have become as rare as“Hen’s Teeth” for Ducati collectors.

In my opinion, and many others enthusiasts, the last of the Classic Modern Italian Motorcycle Designs before Ducati joined the worldwide futuristic look that most motorcycles sadly look like today.

As amazing as these bikes are to look at, they do have a few weak areas that most examples and owners have not taken care of…. NOT THIS BIKE.

The Rear Tail Sections of the body work had way to much pressure on the mounting points, so the correct fix is to build a custom bracket under the seat to take that pressure off the tail section… and this tail piece is perfect.

The Swing Arms historically would crack, but this bike has had a factory replacement swing arm. And lastly the head bolts were weak and broke; this machine has the factory replacement head bolts.

The last piece of this extraordinary Ducati is the Original Injection Molded Seat and Seat Back…these stock parts are impossible to find, and rarely in good shape, as they will deteriorate just by themselves… in my case they have been kept and stored in my Show Garage and are close to perfect. I have the Corbin Period correct aftermarket Seat on the bike, and only use the original for shows.

I have a collection of motorcycles and this bike is only ridden around 100 to 400 a year, it only has 5045 miles on the odometer. The bike comes with the original Tool Kit, Manual and U.S. DOT Reflectors as well.

93900SL_4

There you have it, a super clean example of a sought after Ducati. The last one of these I saw for sale had slightly less miles, but was in a little rougher condition. That bike sold for $9,200 and we usually see clean examples of these go for $10k-$11k. This bike is being relisted due to a buyer falling through. Asking price is very top of the range, but it is a very clean and almost stock (exhaust) example. I would say this bike could push low teens if someone wants it bad enough. Check out the ad here and make the decision for yourself.

1993 Ducati 900SS Superlight #802 For Sale!

Richmond, VA – 4,263m – Currently $3,500 No Reserve 

93900SSSL_1

I have said it before, and I will say it again; seeing a yellow Ducati with a white frame is like an ice cold beer on a hot day. Refreshing. Ducati has a knack for releasing limited edition bikes, and the Superlight is one of the coolest. The SL’s featured more carbon fiber bits, and Marvic aluminum/magnesium wheels to help bring the bikes weight down. They were also one of the first Ducati’s to be given the numbered plaque on the triple clamp.

93900SSSL_11

This SS/SL is number 802 of the bunch and has some interesting qualities about it. First of all, bar risers are now installed, however the original clip-ons come with the sale. The same goes for the up-toothed rear sprocket (original included). Also the swingarm had cracked at the pivot point, but has since been repaired. Corbin seat looks good and keeps it comfy.

93900SSSL_2

From the seller:

I am the second owner. I purchased the bike from the original owner in Vermont. Bike was purchased in 2003 with 3,049 miles. It now has 4,263 original miles. The tires were installed in 2003. The bike has a Corbin seat that was on it when I purchased it. The bike has heli bar risers and I have the original clip-ons. Rear sprocket is 39 teeth; I have the original 37 sprocket. It has the stock mufflers. The carburetors have a Factory Pro jet kit installed and I have the dyno readout. The swing arm cracked at the pivot shaft and has been repaired. Bike came with the 1992 two piece Marvic wheels. No frame cracks at steering head or anywhere else. All numbers match. No reserve, title is clear. I can take additional specific pictures if interested. Buyer will have to arrange shipping.

We have seen these go for the $6-$7k+ range given the condition and miles. The nice thing about this bike is that it is mostly stock and/or can be returned so fairly easily. The Marvic’s are still present and the exhaust is stock. This auction has No Reserve, so it’s going to sell. I will be keeping an eye on this one for sure. Jump on over to the auction here!

1993 Ducati 900 Superlight #916

Do a quick search for previously listed Ducati 900SS/SL’s (Superlight) on this website and you’d swear they’re more common than SP’s! We’ve seen quite a few listed in the last 18 months but here’s another beauty. This one isn’t concours quality and has some miles on it at nearly 32k, but the seller is honest about the condition and has pictures to show what you’re dealing with. For $5500 buy-it-now, it’s right in the realm of a good quality SP or FE, but with the added cache of being a Superlight.

1993 Ducati 900SL #916 on eBay

The cliff notes on the Superlight include: high swept pipes, thinner frame tubes, lightweight and exotic Marvic rims, and the solo seat with numberplate. This one has lots of upgrades and maintenance history. From the seller’s listing:

1993 Ducati 900SL Superlight, s/n 916. This is the second Superlight that I have had the privilege to own; time for this bike to be enjoyed by another enthusiast. I purchased this bike in December 2009 from its third owner in Phoenix, Arizona. The bike was given a good cleaning (any reason to camp out in the garage for a few days with the new machine, cleaning out accumulated dirt on the lower triple clamps with a Q-Tip and replacing all of the zip ties with new white pieces….), and then taken to Renaissance Motorcycles (Tucson, AZ) in January 2010 for Belt Replacement, Valve Adjustment, and a good look-over. The bike moved with me from Arizona to New Jersey where I quickly discovered there were not as many twisty mountain roads as in Arizona, go figure. The bike lived in my office in NJ for the past year. This bike has been ridden and enjoyed since 1993. The motorcycle looks excellent but is not what you are looking for if you require a machine in “concours” condition. I have included pictures of the small defects in the paintwork that have occurred over the miles and years. As you can see from the photos, this is a very clean motorcycle. It takes a close eye (and Macro Setting on my camera) to illustrate the signs of use and age.

While I owned this motorcycle, I replaced the front and rear c/f fenders with new Ducati units (originals were looking tired), installed c/f belt covers, added a c/f tank “bra” from Geelong Carbon Craft of Australia, and installed some nice bar end mirrors (not seen in all of the pictures, the original mirrors were droopy). Other goodies installed on the bike include: Termignoni C/F High Mount silencers, Fren Tubo brake and clutch lines (not certain if these are stainless steel or kevlar), and K&N air filter. Battery was replaced in July with a new unit. Tires are Pirelli Diablo Strada and are in good condition.

The engine on this bike runs very strong. I have owned many Supersports over the years and was very pleased when I rode this machine. While I have done nothing to the power plant other than changed the oil and have the belts replaced and valves adjusted (600 miles ago), I have many receipts (going all the way back to the original Bill of Sale) that show the purchase of and installation of high compression pistons, Barnett Clutch, and Nichols Clutch Basket. I cannot confirm these are in the bike, but I can tell you she is a strong runner.

The Marvic wheels are in excellent condition. No signs of the bolts between the spokes and the rim ever being loose or elongating. Full floater Brembo disks rattle nicely when backing up. Not certain if the seat pad is original or not but it is in good condition and looks right.

This is a very nice example of the Superlight. I bought it because it was not so perfect that I would feel guilty riding it; even so, when on display in my office, many people were amazed by its condition that it was a bike built in 1993. If you are looking for a Superlight, this is a great opportunity to put one in your garage for less than a premium price (and actually ride it vs. dust it).

While this on has a tiny bit of patina, it looks pretty well presented for the asking price. Not to mention you wouldn’t be afraid to ride it as such!

1993 Ducati 900 Supersport/Superlight

1993 Ducati 900 Supersport/Superlight with 944 Big Bore kit and that classic Cagiva lettering 🙂

UPDATE: bidding stalled at $5,600 with the reserve still on.

We’ve had a few SS/SL listed on RSBFS lately, but it’s never to late to show another one eh? and a reserve firmly in place is this latest offering. This one is showing a mere 5,598 miles on the clock and has had a 944 big bore kit installed at some point. It also looks as though it has some tasty upgrades that include Arrow carbon fiber exhausts and a snazy yellow pin-striped Corbin seat. This one though has a very unique problem that doesn’t include the swing arm. Yes, the seller states that the swing arm has been replaced due to the classic swing arm crack. Apparently, the magnesium spokes wiggled their way loose and caused an oblong hole where they attach to the aluminum rim. There was an attempt to repair it, but from the sound of it, it wasn’t the correct fix. Have a look at the pictures and look closely at the rear rim and the alignment of the spokes on the rim. You can see that the spokes aren’t in the middle of the two depressions in the rim (not sure how else to describe it).

History:

The only issue with this motorcycle is the rear wheel. Please see the picture. The motorcycle came to me with the bolts that hold the composite spoke assembly to the aluminum wheel loose. The holes in the wheel had elongated. I had the holes welded shut and the wheel centered and re-drilled a few inches away. I was told the weld was not structurally sound and could not be re-drilled in the same location. Later I was told they could have been electron beam welded and would have been sound enough to re-drill in the same location. They also said it could still be done and the new holes welded shut so the wheel would be as new. I have not pursued this and cannot say it is correct.

Okay, so it’s the only issue, but it’s a pretty major one in my book. It’s such an issue that for me it significantly discounts the bike. I may be wrong, but I can’t imagine it’s going to be easy or cheap to find a 1993 superlight magnesium wheel lying around. I’m sure they’re out there, just not easily found.

Will be interesting to see if and what this one sells for.

Cheers!
