1993 Ducati 900SS Superlight MKII For Sale on eBay!

1993 Ducati 900SS Superlight For Sale!

Make: Ducati
Model: 900SS Superlight
Location: Verona, Wisconsin
Mileage: 9,424
Price: $11,700.00

More sticky than a fly strip is this Wisconsin Cheese colored Italian Stallion with a special Ducati Limited Edition brass number plate on the triple clamp.

#865 is up for your Friday viewing pleasure. What do ya’think?

“Son, what’s it gonna take to put you in this yellow solo seat today?”

Whatever the deal is I’d ask for a heat gun, a plastic razor blade, some Goo Gone, isopropyl alcohol wipes and a bottle of Wizards Wax Master to aid in the prompt removal of those go fast stickers. Don’t misunderstand me- I’m a sticker guy through and through, but I never and I mean never put stickers on any painted surface. I know- to each their own!

From the seller
Bike #865 by the tag.
This bike has only 9424 miles on it. In around 2018, the bike received a complete service. New tires, cam belt, valves set, rebuilt carbs, new battery, new fuel pump, changed all fluids. Was tested and then the fuel tank was drained along with the carbs. It was set for storage in climate controlled storage until fall of 2021. The bike received new Interstate battery, change oil & filter, fresh fuel & ran & driven. The tires still have the tips on them.


 

The bike was made to look like the Fast By Ferracci bike of that time. There is a scratch on right silencer. The bike looks to have been tipped over as there are small paint touch up on the left & right lower & upper fairings. The rear seat cowl does have small cracks around the seat mounts as they all do if anyone sat on them.

This Ducati has a K & N air filter & the air box has been modified. The rear sprocket has been changed, but comes with the original. It comes with a set of Carbon Fiber exhaust silencers and a Corbin seat.

I recommend an inspection to make sure this is the bike for you and you know what you will be receiving.

You are welcome to come view the Ducati Suplerlight or even have someone else inspect it.

I can email more pictures of the Ducati. I have many with the body panels off as well as close detail pictures. And I have a quick video of it being ridden.

All things considered, I think this Superlight presents very well. I’d like to see a close up of the scratches from the tip over, but the seller is open to pre-buying inspections. I checked the RSBFS.com way back time machine and the asking price on this one is about the same as they were 15 years ago. In my feeble mind- that seems like a pretty good deal!

Interested? Check out this SuperFly Yellow Ducati here!

Ciao!

Featured Listing: 2006 Ducati PS1000LE

Update 1.6.2022: This bike has SOLD to an RSBFS reader! Congratulations to buyer and seller!

If you have a bike for sale that would benefit from this kind of exposure, contact us for a Featured Listing. -dc

Even by Ducati’s impressive standards for special editions and factory customs, the 2006 Ducati PS1000LE is a masterstroke. It is, in a way, a special edition within a special edition, as it prowled showrooms at the same time as the Ducati Sport Classic line, which kicked off a wave of retro-look machines that has yet to crest.

The PS1000LE was extra special for Duc, as it celebrated Paul Smart’s historic win at the 1972 Imola 200 aboard a 750SS. The paint scheme apes Smart’s machine, and Ducati had Pierre Terblance pen the neoclassic machine to pay exacting tribute.

The exposed trellis frame, toaster tank, bulbous rear cowl and dustbin-style bikini fairing are brilliant touches. Under all that pretty is a 992 cc L-twin that put out just south of 100 horsepower. Never designed as an out-and-out rocket, the PS is still no slouch, as the torquey mill has less than 400 pounds to shove around. It’s all kept rubberside down by adjustable Ohlins front and rear.

From the seller:

2006 Ducati PS1000LE
I have owned this rare beauty since new. The Termignoni full exhaust system sound is music and the best sounding bike in my collection. Other mods are a Ducati performance racing ECU, open clutch cover, dark shield and clear belt covers and carbon fiber hugger. Original parts will go with the bike with the exception of the original exhaust. Included are two black keys, one red key & key Code Card as well as the Ducati owner’s manual. I have every receipt since it was purchased and it has only been serviced by authorized Ducati dealers. The bike also comes with the Ducati tank cover and tank bag.
These bikes were only made one year and they were limited to 2000 units. This bike was made as a tribute to Paul Smarts win at Imola 200 in 1972 which jump started Ducatis racing successes. The popularity of the limited production bikes led to the popular Sport Classic series.
The bike is a 992cc air cooled Desmodromic 2-valve L twin with 92 HP @ 6,000 RPM and a claimed 399 pounds day with a fuel capacity of 4 gallons with a top speed of 129 MPH.
Price $18,500

These Paul Smart bikes will only go up in value, and while this one might not have the stock exhaust, it is priced to reflect that and is a beautiful example of a timeless bike.

99′ Aprilia RS250 Challenge Cup with only 450 miles!

How about this hot AF Italian smoker for your Thirsty Thursday viewing pleasure?

I’m gonna come clean on this one . . . When I first saw it I was 110% stoked and thought it might be the Holy Grail survivor of RS250’s, but then I watched this at :28 seconds in.

I’m guessing that’s not going to buff out! Looks like someone had a rough day at the track and threw it down the road. I hope the rider was okay.

But, the show must go on and like we always say “Smoke’em if ya Got’em!”

I’m a RS250 fan boy and I’m digging all of the spares and low miles, but wait-

◽ This one sold for $16,800 in September: Iconic RS250

Actually, it sold for $17,976.00, but I’m not squabbling over a few Benjamin’s. I like them both, but would have liked this one more without the raspberry on the tank, but the mileage is super low, but the raspberry on the tank, but it’s really clean, but the raspberry on the tank, but it’s all original, but the raspberry on the tank, but it has (what promises to be) an extensive spares kit, but the raspberry on the tank. . . Ooops! Did I really just type what’s in the grey matter? Sorry!

What do you all think? Worth all the money or a pubie too high?

Wingman – 2002 Triumph Daytona 955i

Triumph’s Daytona brought Hinckley back into the sportbike arena with many innovative design solutions.  This 955i has been restored to a beautiful level and benefits from the exotic Centennial Edition colour.

2002 Triumph Daytona 955i for sale on eBay

Though not going nose to nose on the racetrack, Triumph saw possibilities in the superbike market and used their “modular” engine in its three-cylinder form.  Updates to the valve train and compression ratio coughed up 147 hp, squarely in the liter ballpark.  Subtle changes to the oval-tube alloy chassis made for a slightly shorter wheelbase and seat height, in the interest of quicker handling.  45mm right-side-up forks remain, but the additional power would soon make a new double-sided swingarm a requirement.  The updated fairing begins with a two in one molded headlight, and made room for three more liters of fuel.

As a tribute to an injured Army buddy, this owner stuck with the refurbishment of this Daytona when many would’ve faltered.  Just about the asking price was put into its resurrection, but life has its own ideas and sometimes the toy has to go.  Looks great in the detailer’s photos, and though too long to post here, the owner shares every work order as well as these notes in the eBay auction:

The bike starts quickly, without a fuss, and is always itching to be ridden. It gets up speed really quickly and is a blast. The substantial horsepower of the large displacement engine allows for the rider to get to where they want to go while in traffic. The engine consistently pulls. Such power is ideal when encountering unwanted traffic scenarios where you have to get out of harms way quickly. The brakes are new so they work very well bringing the bike from high speeds to a stop quickly and confidently. The weight of the bike adds to its stability on the highway. And though it is a heavier bike it is still sporty and flickable. 
 
The bike wields lots of power and decent torque for a seasoned bike. 
The suspension is fully adjustable making for a smooth and dialed in experience. The Scorpion exhaust has some growl but sounds really nice. 
The bike will ship with its OEM exhaust as well. That being said, I always use earplugs on every outing. This bike is a great way to experience the road. 
I have taken great care of it while in my keep. In fact I had it ceramic coated in early spring and just had a full detail and wax performed on it before winterizing it and putting it away for the winter season.
 
Nearing the end of the season I noticed a couple of issues that will need to be addressed –
1) A throttle mapping service may be in order
2) The speedometer fails intermittently (Though a new speed sensor was installed in the Spring 2021)
3)  A new rear blinker assembly is needed
4) It is in need of a coolant flush and coolant replacement
 
The Centennial Edition’s subtle take on BRG was to celebrate Triumph’s 100th anniversary, and the Daytona provided at least a viable alternative to the mainstream.  The 955i superbike was succeeded by a more manageable 675 until 2016, and has recently been revived as a limited edition with the 765cc spec engine for Moto2.  Hinckley Triumph has made an epic go of it, with the 955i as the second generation of their first superbike.

Cruella de Magni – 2001 Moto Guzzi V11 Sport TT

Late 2001 the Guzzi importer had a thought to increase U.S. sales with a contrasting paint scheme for the V11 Sport.  Today’s Goose has a rare Magni fairing and very sharp presentation.

2001 Moto Guzzi V11 Sport TT for sale on eBay

As ever, Guzzi designers kept some classic elements along with up-to-date driveline tech.  Approaching 1100cc, the V11’s longitudinal twin used fuel injection and sported 91 hp with a handy 69 ft.-lbs. torque.  The chassis is the classic backbone – but red, with matching alloy sideplates.  USD Marzocchi forks are paired with a parallelogram monoshock and a retro semi-exposed driveshaft.  Chassis geometry and big Brembo brakes add to the trademark stability and a newly designed smoother six-speed.  Not a small machine, but the V11 offers adjustable bars to accommodate.

The two valve goose is easy on the maintenance budget, and this one is nicely accessorized, and the classy Magni fairing works well with the two-tone TT livery.  This owner has apparently added just 1,000 or so miles, and she looks ready to rumble, as the exhausts confirm in the owner’s walkaround – here -.  Comments from the eBay auction:

One of a kind V11 sport. You wont find another as unique a collectors item as this one. One of 15 V11 Sport “TT”. Clean Titled as V11 Sport TT. Excellent condition. Always garaged. 15k miles. Fresh service. Everything operates as it should. Runs and drives perfect! Battery is only a year or so old. Tires are great. Corbin seat. MASS Moto reverse cone carbon fiber exhaust. Has the desirable Magni cafe fairing. Sale will include stock Lafarconi exhaust, stock seat with cowl, service records, promotional materials, and various spares.

Moto Guzzi has long-lived models and the V11 ran from 1998 through 2006, and could be said to be one of the sportier recent Guzzi’s, since their current imports don’t include anything Le Mans derived.  Ready to shake off the polishing cloths and rack up some miles, this example has quite a few watchers and Make Offer button.

1993 Kawasaki Ninja ZX7R M1 w/ 6600 Miles For Sale on eBay!

Tim has asked we keep the comments closed on this post. While readers may be disappointed that this option is available to organic listings. I’d prefer to respect a seller’s wishes rather than not have this post on the site at all — especially an example this nice. Good luck to buyers and seller. -Dan

Now that we have the corporate attorney locked in the closet- Let’s roll!

You guessed it! It’s time for another addition of dd’s “90’s dual headlight and neon splash graphics homologation corner”.

1993 Kawasaki Ninja ZX7R M1 Homologation Super Bike For Sale!

Solo tail section, aluminum rear sub-frame, aluminum fuel tank, fully adjustable forks, remote reservoir rear shock, flat slide carbs, close ratio 6-speed transmission and an adjustable swing arm pivot. Did I miss anything? Oh wait, this M1 comes complete with a period correct Muzzy’s full header, Ohlins remote reservoir rear shock, Ohlins steering dampner and a crystal clear factory wind screen.
Hell, I’d bet the wind screen alone is worth $24,999! Okay, not really, but you get my point.




A few years back, I had a K1 and I loved it! Don’t even ask me why I sold my dream green machine. I’m still kicking myself in the ass for that bone head move!
I’ll come clean and tell you I did try to buy this one before it went live on our site, but for whatever reason, Tim, the seller, wouldn’t accept my abysmal $10,000 offer. Go figure!

From the seller:

I have decided to sell my M1 ZX7R. This bike is in exceptional condition runs great and is actually friendly on the street. If you are looking at this then you know, this has the flat slide carburetors, aluminum tank, and adjustable suspension, solo cowl. This M1 however is really well dialed in. I put a featherweight Lithium battery in it, it has a full Muzzy exhaust (loud, like the best way to hear one of these), Ohlins rear shock, Ohlins steering stabilizer, factory OEM windscreen (rare), and the fairings are factory Kawasaki. I also have the OEM factory exhaust for it as well. This is a rare bike and only a handful were brought in for homologation purposes to race AMA. I have a passion for collectible sport bikes but this one is not being ridden. Clear California title and registration in my name, come look at it in person, send a friend. Currently registered until January 2022. I will try to post up some pics of the exhaust but its been in storage in a cardboard box.

You see that extra hole in the fairing right next to the frame mounting point? That’s to make easy work adjusting the Keihin Flat Slide carbs without removing the fairing- Something the previous K1 and K2 models didn’t have (just a small tidbit of info).

Interested? Make the jump here before it’s gone!

Cheers!

Featured Listing – 2010 BMW HP2 Sport ABS with 7,908 Miles !

Update 11.20.2021: This bike has SOLD! Congratulations to buyer and seller! -dc

With a long list of “firsts” for BMW, the HP2 Sport was the pinnacle of flat-twin sport generation that began with the R1100S in 1998.  RSBFS reader Bill’s example is immaculate, hiding even its low miles.

2010 BMW HP2 Sport ABS for sale – Asking $20,000

With specs reading like a shopping list for any BMW fan with a racetrack handy, starting with the 1170cc engine.  Four valves were finally aboard each cylinder head, and blueprinted for the HP2 with larger valves and more robust pistons.  133 hp are expected at 8,750 rpm, sent to the rear wheel via close ration gearbox, quick-shifter and paralever shaft drive.  The list continues with Öhlins dampers front and rear, Brembo monoblock brakes with ABS, tuned for the track and even de-selectable.  The all-stainless exhaust is tucked tightly to allow more lean, and warms the integral carbon seat sub-frame.  A run of just a few hundred, with build quality every manufacturer could aspire to.

Bill’s HP2 looks to have been wiped down after every ride, and ridden only on nice days and freshly swept streets.  It’s consigned to EuroCycle in Sonoma, and here are their comments:

2010 BMW HP2 Sport ABS in absolutely pristine condition for the BMW Motorrad enthusiast. This motorcycle is so clean you can eat off the engine! Only 62 of these motorcycles were brought to the US market in 2010. The motorcycle was serviced by San Diego BMW in 2020 where the valves were checked, a complete fluid change, and a new battery was installed. This motorcycle has been garaged, covered, and impeccably maintained since new. Never dropped or down and in perfect mechanical and 100% original cosmetic condition. BMW made an iconic engineering statement with the HP2 Sport by building a very limited production, hand-crafted “factory special” featuring DOHC radial valve heads, exotic internals, and carbon fiber bodywork from an F1 constructor (signed by the technician who built each piece).

The result was the highest performance BMW boxer twin ever made (136bhp), featuring sublime handling, ABS brakes, a factory-installed quick shifter, and the first carbon fiber subframe on a production motorcycle. This bike sparkles with carbon fiber valve covers and tail light assembly, milled-from-billet foot controls/clip-ons/upper triple clamps, Motek MotoGP-style instrumentation (with programmable displays and lap timers), Magura levers, forged aluminum wheels, BMW’s patented telelever/paralever front/rear suspension with fully adjustable Ohlins shocks and Brembo radial-mount monoblock calipers. The best components available were used in constructing these machines. The bike comes with a perfect owner’s manual, tool kit, and the original 2nd set of lower race bars.

Bill asks $20,000 for his HP2 Sport.

The HP2 Sport was delivered ready to drop at the race prep shop, with spares and adjustments galore.  But luckily a few missed their fate and were preserved for an advanced road mission or carpet runner.  Bill’s beauty could go right to the head of the next coffee run or remain a showpiece, hopefully a little of both.

1994 Yamaha TZR250 SPR 3XV For Sale!

1995 Yamaha TZR250 SPR 3XV For Sale on eBay!

The TZR250 SPR was the culmination of all things before it. The SPR’s have braced black frames, triple 32mm power valves (to skirt the regulations of the day) that consisted of both guillotine and cotton reel designs. The beauty of this design was even though Yamaha downsized the the valves from 36mm to 32mm they were still able to keep the horsepower at 40. That’s not a lot of HP by today’s 4 strokes power output, but it was plenty for Yamaha to eventually win the Suzuka 4 hour endurance race with the SPR.

Here’s what the eBay listing has to say.

Absolutely fantastic example of the last of the 2stroke 250cc Yamaha super sport bikes! Incredibly rare bike that was never sold in the US market during production. Powered by the proven single-axis crank 90-degree V-twin engine that adopted “Triple YPVS” for finely tuned exhaust control, a new type of carburetor (during the 90’s) and a cassette-type wide-ratio transmission. This bike has been on display in a high-end collection for about a year and a half and is ready for a new owner. The bike has recently been started and run for the first time since it was imported

Here are some key features of this bike:

-Fantastic visual condition for a bike that is nearly 30 years old
-Starts easily, and runs great
-Clean PA title! Very rare for this bike to have a US title.
-Fuel tank is spotless
-All lights and horn work properly
-New battery
-Temp gauge or sensor may need to be addressed as the needle did not move during my test ride.
-Only 9513 KM = 5911 Miles
-Tons of tread left on the Rosso II tires
-Minor scuffs on each fairing, small paint repair on edge of front fender and one paint blemish on frame near swingarm pivot

I don’t disagree with the sellers evaluation and description of their machine. I would like to point out that all of my research, friends and GoDuckYou translator tells me SPR’s weren’t produced until 1995. Not that it matters, because it really is a non-issue since SPR’s were never brought stateside. I am very pleased to see it’s titled and ready to roll, but should you pull the trigger on this one I recommend you tread lightly! Parts for these are scarce to non-existent.

I also wanted to mention that I think it’s worth every penny of the asking price because these are rare as rocking horse poop and this example is finer than frogs hair.
