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.

1990 Yamaha FZR400 in Medford for $2500

This is a pretty good looking example for only $2500. Oh yeah, it only has 5k miles too! I know there are a handful of Pacific Northwest followers in here, not to mention Doug is an owner, so naturally I had to post right away:

1990 Yamaha FZR400 on Medford Craigslist

quote from the listing:

1990 yamaha fzr 400 only 5k miles, with aluminum delta box frame AND swingarm. only imported for 3 years and the 1990 is the only year with a delta box swingarm. very rare and unique bike. rated best ultra lightweight superbike of all time… even by todays standards. $2500.

The black plastics on this one remind me of my old FZR600 from college. Good memories and I’ve always heard the 400 was more than a match for the 600 with the lighter frame. I can practically feel the Citibank cash advance jumping out of my wallet right now!

1986 Suzuki GSXR750 LE for sale

This is probably the first, of what we know as sportbikes today, homologation model produced.  This one is for sale on

1
42

If my memory serves me correctly, about the only differences between the LE and the regular US version is the dry clutch, LE graphics and the solo seat tail section.  The European versions received Flat Side Carbs for this year. 
 

THIS ONE ONLY HAS 4400 MILES AND IS IN GREAT SHAPE FOR ITS YEAR. PAINT IS ALL ORIGINAL WITH A FEW MINOR BLEMISHES BUT NO CRACKS WHAT SO EVER. 

COMES WITH FACTORY MUFFLER AND YOSH SYSTEM.

The seller states that this bike has Dymag Magnesium wheels and if that is the case all of my research says they aren’t OEM.  If anyone has information regarding this let me know and I’ll update the post. 

These early GSXR’s had a whopping 106hp and used 18″ rims on both the front and rear.  One fun fact is the FZR 400’s used the exact same tire size (even larger than the same year FZR 1000’s, but I’ll save that tid bit for another post).  This one looks to be in great shape and is located in Swansea, Massachusetts.  I know these have a huge cult following so I am anxious to see what it sells for.

3 Ducati D16RR Desomsedici’s for sale

 Following on the heels of Alex’s great post of 3 AMA Superbikes for sale, I felt compelled to post the badest production homologation bike on the planet.  I know, I know that can be debated, but can’t be denied that these babies are bad to the bone!

First D16RR is located in Kalamazoo, MI and is the cheapest of the 3 on .

Kalamazoo

Owner says:

2008 Ducati Desmosedici D16RR Team Edition #190/1500 This bike is in Excellent condition! Adult ridden, properly broken-in. I comes with all the goodies from Ducati that came with the bike. Cover, the unused GP Replica Sticker Kit, both exhaust systems and ecu’s, rear stand. Bike also has the optional Ducati rear hugger. Please email me with any questions.

This one has 3,300 miles on the clock and like I said before is the cheapest of the three at $45,000 with no reserve.

===============================================================================

Next D16RR is located in Seattle and is on as well.

Seattle

Owner says:

It is #678 out of 1500.  

It still has the included service plan and warranty and all accessories that came with it.  It is the Team Version.  The decals are included but have not been applied.  It has had the Ducati Service Bulletins performed by the local Ducati Dealer in Seattle (improved valve return springs and wiring harness protection).

It includes the optional carbon fiber rear hugger.  The motorcycle has the factory included racing exhaust kit installed.  The stock kit comes with it as well

 
This one is priced in the middle of the three at $57,000 with no reserve.  The owner is also including a little bonus if you buy his bike.  You’ll have to to get all of the details. 

================================================================================

Finally, the 3rd D16RR for sale is located in Portland and is for sale on just like the previous 2.

Portland

Owner says:

2008 Ducati Desmosedici D16RR Team Edition #869/1500

This bike in Great shape and only has 758 miles. Unfortunately money is tight and I need to sell this amazing machine.

 
This bike has a ton of upgrades (I thought Ducati already had the good stuff on it?) which are extensive and tasty.   

 I have had quite a bit of upgrades installed and they are as follows:

  • Titanium Race Exhaust
  • BST Carbon Fiber Wheels
  • Brake Tech Carbon Fiber Brake Rotors
  • Ferodo Carbon Brake Pads
  • Yoyodyne Titanium Hardware for Rotors
  • Dynojet PCV(5) Powercomander
  • Dynojet Quickshifter and Shift Rod.
  • Ducati Performance Rear Hugger
  • Vented Clutch Cover
  • Zero Gravity Rosso GP Replica Windscreen (shown in pics on bike)
  • Ducati Performance Double Bubble Windscreen
  • Casey Stoner Grips
  • Anti Vibration Handle Bar Inserts
  • Rizoma Bar ends
  • Ducati Performance Brake and Clutch Resivoir Covers
  • AFAM Rear Sporkets
  • Carbon Fibre rotors, Carbon Pads, Carbon Fibre wheels…..  Would love to see this bike in person and throw a leg over it.  I can only imagine how this thing sounds with the Titanium Exhaust cranked up to about 10,000g.  Just the thought of it makes my hair raise. 

    ================================================================================

    So if you’ve ever had an itch to pick one of these bad boys up now is your chance.  Silly season is in full swing and the rare bikes are plentiful.  The D16RR’s had a $72,000 price tag when new (someone can correct me if I’m wrong) and these are priced well under that.  The last one has a lot of expensive bits on it and I can’t even begin to guess what they cost in addition to the bike.  Hope you enjoy looking at these as much as I enjoyed posting them.

    1992 Suzuki GSXR 1100 w/ only 9,000 miles!

    I know, I know not a super rare find, but an extremely clean, low mileage classic liter bike.  I appreciate a bike that has been well maintained and taken care of as much as I do the super rare ones.  Of course I can only appreciate them because I am a freak about cleaning and maintaining my own scoots. 

    123

     Looks to be in really nice shape and well taken care of.  This gem is located in Texas and would make for a great conversation piece at your local bike night.
     

    1992 GSXR1100 that has not been raced, Wreck, Dropped, or painted. This bike has been garaged kept its whole life and is in great shape.

    The bike does not have any damage other then a few MINOR nicks from the road here and there but is a 9 out of 10 for sure. Runs and drives perfect.

     
    The only modification I can see is the tail end is delete of the stock mud flap.  It has an aftermarket exhaust as well, but is not pictured due to being taken off for polishing.  In my area of the world, most sportbikes bottom out around 3,000 to 3,500 regardless of age or size, so for me a super clean 1992 GSXR 1100 at $2,800 is a steal!

    1989 Yamaha FZR 400 Mint Mint Mint!!!

     

    Title says it all boys and girls.  If you’ve ever wanted to own the best handling sport bike ever made buy it now! 

    1989 Yamaha FZR 400 on Toronto Kijiji for $4,000

    Owner says:

     

    1989 in Mint Condition with only 18,131 kms or 11,266 miles.

    Bike is completely stock and has been garaged always and pampered in every way by 2nd mature owner who has had the bike since 1992.

     

    I can speak from personnel experience when it comes to 400’s.  I’ve owned 7,000 mile mint ones, raced them and currently own a 89 bone stock one that needs some attention.  This one is it!  I’ve found four 400’s for sale this week and haven’t posted them on RSBFS because I didn’t think they were good enough, but this one is worthy.  I will tell you that if you find one, that is all 100% original, it 9.9 times out of 10 will not be in this condition.  I have way more than 4g’s in mine and I’m not finished yet.  I know I’m crazy for putting that kind of money in a 20 year old half liter bike, but I can’t help myself when it comes to 400’s.  These things sold for right at $3,000 when new and have only gone up in value.  I have to imagine it is one of the very few mass produced Big 4 Japan bikes to have that honor.  If I didn’t have my current 400 you wouldn’t see this posted on RSBFS because I would own it.  Someone buy this gem and enjoy it.

     

    FYI – All RSBFS Post viewer comments will now be available for eveyone to read.  So if you have something to say about a particular bike, good or bad, feel free to leave a comment.

    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.

    1985 Yamaha RZ 500

     

    Yes, another one..  it seems there are a lot of these for sale as of late.  Maybe the price of 2 stroke oil is on the rise and there is a unified mass sell off.  Whatever the case maybe, these are way cool and they are available for your viewing or purchasing pleasure.

    This one is all stock with the exception of the “go fast while sitting still” stickers.  The owner had the following to say about his prized bike.

     

    I have had it for 15 years.  I bought it in Florida.  Bike has 21000 mile on it.  I would say the bike is a 7 from a scale of 1 to 10. All stock besides the new metzler tires.  Motor was rebuilt 8 years ago.  Bike runs and drives well.

     

    This one is offered at $6,500, which is the cheapest we’ve ever posted on RSBFS according to my research.  You can verify for yourself here.   

     

    Is it just me or are the front turn signals facing the wrong way on this bike???
