Paul Smart Stunt Double – 2006 Ducati Sport 1000

With Ducati Paul Smart commemoratives fetching $25K-ish, this owner has created a similarly configured bike with lot of nicer  components, distinguishable from the original only by the not-blue frame and the Mediterranean cruise you can take with the price difference.

Designed by Pierre Terblanche in the early 2000’s, the SportClassic line-up used the 992cc air-cooled dual spark engine, and had 93 hp available.  The chro-moly trellis works around the vertical cylinder and back towards the integrated seat subframe.  All systems are available for view, and on this bike have been done up nicely.  Forks by Marzocchi and Sachs monoshock have given way to Öhlins both ends.  Brakes are still unbeatable 4-puck Brembo fronts with 320mm rotors, followed by 245mm rear.  A factory Sport 1000 fairing has been added to the monoposto seat and all the bodywork painted an understated dark silver.

Presented by a San Diego dealer, there are a lot of nice touches on this one.  Those peek-a-boo Rizoma cam belt covers lead the charge, but there is a matching clutch cover, Arrow exhaust system, Acculign adjustable rearsets, and some niceties in the intake stream but out of view.  Here’s a short list from the eBay auction:

This is a 1 Owner bike.  Bike is very clean and has been built with the best parts possible.  Looks like a Paul Smart but is not a Paul Smart.  Just as good with the upgraded Ohlins and striking paint.

SportClassics can be a bit of a labor of love, since everything is visible, it’s nice if it looks good.  For its nearly 12,000 miles, this machine looks ready for a serious show.  Comfy-looking grips might push the odometer a little farther than the low bars and solo seat would indicate.  When you do arrive,  you’ll have a singular ride, all of the best attributes of a Paul Smart, and improved in many ways…

A Smart Buy? 2006 Ducati Paul Smart 1000LE for Sale

2006 Ducati PS R Side Front

Ducati’s SportClassic line made a big splash when it was introduced in 2005 and included today’s Paul Smart 1000LE. Powered by Ducati’s torque-rich L-twin with modern suspension at both ends, they were mature sportbikes for riders with a sense of history, an eye for design, and an appreciation for accessible performance. Many will complain about how “underpowered” they are, with just 92hp from the twin-plug, air-cooled twin, but there’s plenty of performance for most road-riders and the relative light weight and top-shelf suspension mean you can exploit every available horse.

2006 Ducati PS L Side
The style was never really in question though. Pierre Terblanche may have caught some serious flack for his superbike restyle, it’s pretty obvious he knew what he was doing when he designed these. Unfortunately, although demand was high at first for the SportClassic line, interest tapered off fairly quickly and only the conservatively-styled GT1000 soldiered on until 2010.

2006 Ducati PS Rear Suspension

Interestingly, that low initial demand quickly turned into high collectability, especially for the half-faired Paul Smart 1000LE that was low-production to begin with. Designed to evoke the bike ridden by Paul Smart to an unlikely win at Imola in 1972, the bike featured silver, half-faired bodywork and a blue-green painted frame. Rear suspension was unusual and looked like a classic dual-shock setup at the rear, but only from the left-hand side. It’s an asymmetric monoshock, and one of my favorite features of the bike.

2006 Ducati PS R Rear
This example appears to be fitted with a set of the correct Pirelli Phantoms that were designed for this bike to offer modern performance and classic looks that mirror the bikes themselves. It also features a set of accessory fairing lowers that strengthen the Imola-bike-connection but to me detract from the looks. I prefer the half-fairing that resembles the road-going 750SS and, if it were my money, I’d be holding out for a bike with the funky Zard high/low exhaust instead of the entirely appropriate, but fairly conservative two-into-one Termignoni pipe seen here.

2006 Ducati PS Tank

From the original eBay listing: 2006 Ducati Paul Smart for Sale

Up for auction is this incredibly clean, low mile Ducati PS1000LE Paul Smart Sport Classic. This Paul Smart comes with a Termignoni system and is otherwise stock, save for the accessory seat. The bike is in near-showroom condition and has just had the 2-year service completed…it needs nothing. And with only 1,953 it’s virtually new. This bike is 100% correct with zero issues, flaws or scratches.

We’ve had several inquiries about the tank. Currently there is no sign of warping, bubbling, etc. Tank has not been coated but looks good.

Over the last few years, the Paul Smart has become one of the most sought-after Ducatis in recent memory. Not only is the Paul Smart a competent and capable road bike that’s zestful and invigorating to ride, it’s also a stunningly gorgeous object of beauty.

Based on a Sport Classic engine/frame combination, the PS100LE was built to commemorate Paul Smart’s classic win at Imola on the fabled 750ss. The silver bodywork and blue/green frame was meant to conjure up images of the 750 race bike – only this model contains a 1000cc dual-spark lump and top-grade Ohlins suspension to compliment the single seat and clip-on bars.

The bike is styled in the fashion of the Ducati 750 Imola Desmo race bike that Paul Smart rode to victory, and the 1974 750 SuperSport it originally inspired. It is one of the SportClassic series designed by Pierre Terblanche.

2006 Ducati PS R Side

Just 2,000 Paul Smart replicas were made, and they already command serious coin among collectors. This bike is in nearly perfect condition, although I’ve yet to see a Paul Smart that wasn’t: it’s pretty obvious that, unlike some bikes that take time to establish their collectability, buyers bought these from new well aware they’d become instant classics, and have maintained them accordingly. Bidding on this example is already up to $12,300 with the Reserve Not Met. Want to skip all that bidding drama? The Buy It Now price is set at a stunning $30,000! These have been steadily on the rise, but that still stopped me in my tracks…

Lite(r) Custom – 2006 Ducati Paul Smart 1000LE

Lovely as they are, and sweet to ride, the 2006-only Ducati Paul Smart commemoratives are in a funny corner – too collectible to be riders, but the urge to customize can be irresistible.  Many times they appear after a few years on the display stand, generally asking serious bucks, this one with some premium bits and neat custom work.

Styled by Pierre Terblanche  as part of Ducati’s SportClassic retro collection, the PS1000 Limited Edition uses the 992cc 4-valve air-cooled motor generating 92 hp.  The beautiful sea green metallic trellis frame displays the dry clutch and two-into-two exhaust nicely.  Modern in the suspension department, it uses 43mm upside-down forks and rear monoshock ( on the left side of the double-sided swingarm ), both fully adjustable Ohlins.  Brakes are also worthy of the task with dual 320mm front disks and 245mm rear.  Retro spoke wheels have alloy rims.  Slim and not overweight, the long frame lends stability if not flickability to the equation, and the DS1000 injected engine makes it real-world rideable.

Hidden away with only 1144 miles, this PS1000LE has been treated to a beautiful titanium exhaust, adjustable lever and foot pegs, LED turn signals and bar-end mirrors.  The body was not ignored, as a neat tail fairing with a Corvette tail-light is installed.  An aluminum tank was fabricated in response to the expanding plastic tank issue Ducati had in the 2000’s, and the auction says it is available, seems to be pictured on the bike though not certain.  Also available are the fairing lowers with Paul Smart’s number 16.  From the eBay auction:

Features: 

  • Zard Italian made FULL TITANIUM exhaust (amazing sounding) – $3,200
  • Motor completely stock except for clutch cover (previously stated DS1100 heads was a mistake)
  • Eagle eye LED turn signals (stock included)
  • open dry clutch
  • Comfort windshield (stock included)
  • Lowering bracket for better stance (removable)
  • Carbon fiber chain guard (stock included)
  • Short “naked” fairings
  • GT front fender (stock included)
  • Speedymoto wheel sliders
  • Adjustable gold adonized hand controls (stock included)
  • Fully adjustable billet aluminum foot controls (extremely important, adjusts the bike to fit your height for comfort and control)
  • Reverse or Regular shifting
  • Tommaselli dark brown grips (I can throw in a set of retro light brown rubber grips as well)
  • All stock parts included except for rear cowl (easily found on ebay or from motowheels) and exhaust. 
  • Aluminum tank and seat with corvette taillight and carbon fiber full fairings are NOT included in sale, but available separately for an additional cost (see below)
  • Winner gets choice of titanium Zard exhaust or Termignoni dual slip-ons.

With starting bid at the low end of the usual for this model, if you’re in the market a look-see at least is warranted.  A great strategy by Ducati, the SportClassics seem more popular now than when they were introduced.  One man’s customization can be another’s remuddling though, and most of the factory parts are included or available with this bike.  And though I can appreciate it, the idea of having a fairly current non-riding road bike doesn’t really compute for me – this is a 2006 Ducati under all the retro and custom glow, it is likely a joy to take out.  Long and low bar position will make the PS1000LE a wonder out in the open but a chore around town, so the ride to the bike show must be planned accordingly.

Retro Looks, Modern Handling: 2006 Ducati Paul Smart 1000LE

2006 Ducati Paul Smart 1000 R Front

Just 500 of the classically-proportioned Ducati Paul Smart 1000LE bikes were imported to the US, with silver half-faired bodywork and a blue-green frame intended to recall the bike ridden to victory by Paul Smart at the Imola 200 in 1972, a win without which Ducati might not exist.

Modern retro-styled bikes often use their throwback looks to justify performance to match. Harley’s Sportster is obviously the worst offender, but the Triumph Bonneville, while an all-around great motorcycle, is hardly a performer when the road gets twisty. The thing is, although the Ducati Sport Classics weren’t cutting-edge sport bikes in terms of weight or power, they did feature top-shelf suspension and braking components so they are actually rewarding to ride quickly and use one of the most charismatic and long-serving engines of all time: Ducati’s belt-driven, two-valve, air-cooled L-twin. In the Sport Classic, it displaces 992cc and uses twin-plug heads for more efficient combustion across the honking big piston surface.

2006 Ducati Paul Smart 1000 L Rear

For your consideration today is this very nice Paul Smart 1000LE that features the truly lust-worthy Zard dual exhaust. Seriously, I want one of the original solo-seat Sport Classics just so I can fit one of those exhausts. They look cool as all get-out and sound amazing as well. I also love that very slick LED taillamp that cleans up the look of the rear and is almost invisible, while providing you with all the “hey I’m stopping” and turn-indicator-y-ness of the original units, but with less overtly retro styling.

2006 Ducati Paul Smart 1000 R Engine

And let’s not overlook those very trick Beringer front brakes, although I’m not sure the original Brembo units were actually lacking in stopping power…

2006 Ducati Sport Classic Paul Smart 1000 for Sale

As much as Terblanche’s Sport Classics didn’t sell all that well when new, once the initial rush of Ducatisti purchases was finished, they’ve held their value very well: bidding on this bike is over $18,000 with the reserve not yet met. Since new examples rang in at $14,000, that means that, unlike buyers of, say the MV Agusta F4CC, the original owners of the Paul Smart are just about breaking even now…

2006 Ducati Paul Smart 1000 Seat

Most riders aren’t actually capable of exploiting a 1299 or even an 899 Panigale, much as they might love the style and heritage. And you pay a pretty hefty price in terms of comfort, insurance, and maintenance if you choose the superbike style over the real-world performance of something like this.

A Sport Classic allows you to have your cake and eat it too, offering an effective blend of modern design and vintage styling cues, along with performance that is real-world fast, and enough handling to embarrass unsuspecting squids on a Sunday morning ride.

Air-cooled collector’s edition set – Ducati MH900e and PS1000LE

In one quick transaction, you could have two venerable Ducati air-cooled twins, rare and collectible with low miles.  The first of Pierre Terblanche’s tribute designs, the 2000 MH900E has only 1900 miles, with a nice selection of memorabilia.  With 7,800 miles, the 2006 Paul Smart 1000LE is signed by Paul Smart ( he may have been the original owner ) and has the optional lower fairings and Pro Italia exhaust.

These single-cam bikes are great performers in vintage costume, the 900 having 75hp and the 1000 92hp.  With the stability and wide turning radius of a the long trellis frame, they are good-handling riders.  Current upside-down forks and single-sided swingarms are on both bikes, along with three big brake disks.  While the dry clutch is a nod to past, fuel injection acknowledges the present.  The exhaust on the MH900E is tucked under the seat, and the PS1000LE has a two-into-one with a polished aluminum muffler.

From the eBay auction:

One auction price for a lot of 2 bikes.

Bike 1 is a year 2000 Mh900e, it has about 1800 miles on it and is in excellent condition.  This bike comes with the special T-Shirt with the bikes serial number which is number 30. It also comes with the matching plaque and owners manual.
 
Bike 2 is year 2006 Paul Smart 1000 LE with rare number fairings.  Even more rare is the rear fender signed by Paul Smart.  The bike has the original manual with it.  The bike was bought from Pro Italia in Glendale, CA.  It is believed that the pipe system was custom ordered from Ducati and came with the bike originally.  I have been told but I cannot prove the bike was owned by Paul Smart himself.  The bike has about 8k miles on it and runs very well and is in excellent condition.
 
We are reducing our collection and would like to see the bikes go to a good home.

Both fitting tributes, the MH900e is named for Isle of Man TT specialist Mike Hailwood, who had 14 wins there between 1961 and 1979.  Paul Smart won the 1972 Imola 200 on a Ducati 750 Desmo from which the PS1000LE color scheme is derived.  Presuming a minor amount of service to make them ready, this could be an expeditious way to an epic riding season.

Air-cooled collector’s edition set – Ducati MH900e and PS1000LE

Factory-built Tribute – 2009 Ducati 1000S

After the retro-styled MH900E of 2001-02, the Pierre Terblanche-led styling department had another epiphany in 2005.  The SportClassic series used the air-cooled 992cc dual-spark engine, and a steel trellis frame, with up-to-date brakes and suspension.  Most of the 2006-09 production was the naked GT1000, with single or dual seats.  The gem of the series was the 2006 Paul Smart 1000 LE, which commemorated the factory rider’s 1978 Isle of Man TT win.  The Sport 1000S was made in 2007-09 in relatively low numbers and while not having the cachet of the PS, it is a rare retro sportbike.

Relying on the 2-valve air-cooled 992, the Sport 1000S sends 92 hp and 67 ft-lbs. torque through a six-speed gearbox, via a smooth(er) wet clutch.  Modern 43mm upside forks are used, and the adjustable dual rear shocks ( and dual mufflers ) have a lot of retro appeal ( Paul Smart models used a single sided swingarm and exhaust ).  Brakes are dual 320mm disks in front with 4-piston calipers, and single 245mm rear disk.  The ’07-08 Sports had a dual seat, but in 2009 Ducati brought back the single seat with cowl used on the PS.

This Sport 1000S has custom turn signals, micro-blinkers smoothly installed on the front fairing, and a fender eliminator kit out back with the brake light and turn signals in an LED strip along the back of the seat cowling.  Sparks stainless steel mufflers are also added.  The fairing has the factory black with white stripe and appears excellent.

The eBay auction states:

This is the rarest of the Sport Classic range. The black Sport classic was produced only in 2009. This example is in pristine condition with all maintenance performed by Ducati Dallas, including the 7500 mile service. Includes a recently installed new Caswell coated gas tank so you never have to worry about tank expansion. Includes – Stainless Spark Exhaust, Fled LED tail light, LED Front Signals, Brown Grips, Mosfet Regulator, Brand New Pirelli Rosso tires.

Sport_1000S_1

While the world is quick to deride designer Pierre Terblanche for what he possibly got wrong at Ducati (arguments over the 749/999 series come to mind), the creation of the Sport Classic line was something he certainly got right. Invoking Ducati’s rich history with modern mechanics and the utter ride-ability and reliability of the fabled 2-valve air-cooled L-twin, Terblanche created a link to the past with these very cool modern sportbikes. The Sport 1000 and the Paul Smart draw on the glory days of the bevel, but rev it up with a dual-spark interpretation of the venerable Pantah.

Sport_1000S_11

While the Sport Classic line starts out as coveted machinery, RSBFS reader Curtis has kicked things up a notch, building a black beauty that invokes the green-framed 750, the Paul Smart Edition and even Old Blue – had it been black. While the desmodue motors do not breathe particularly well at high RPMs, they are bulletproof torque monsters…and light weight to boot. That makes these air-cooled Supersport based machines formidable street bikes, as they comprise a tidy package of compact and light weight stature pushed along by a growling and tractable 90 degree twin. Simplicity and effectiveness in one great looking package.

Selling my 2006 Monoposto Sport Classic. Ducati never made a Black Monoposto 1000S, so I took the liberty to create what I believe would live up to its name. This is basically a monoposto black paul smart. The 1000S that came out in 2007+ were all bi-posto and wet clutches.

I am leaving the country and instead of having this bike sit in storage for the next 6 months, I am putting it up for sale. All the details and particulars are listed below. I am in no need to sell it, and any low ball offers will be ignored. I am located in Orange County CA and can show the bike in person. No test rides unless cash in hand. The Tank is a black 1000s that was purchased new and had the stripes removed and recleared. It was sealed with caswell professionally by T.Markus in Hollywood so that there is no chance of this tank expanding. If you are looking for a sport 1000, beware as the tank’s expand and warp due to the ethanol in gasoline. Without a professionally sealed tank, your tank WILL expand… at a cost of $1400 for a replacement tank that still needs to be coated. Do not take that chance.

00z0z_ftgvG1kzyGP_600x450

For all the grief he received for his redesign of Ducati’s superbike, it’s still pretty clear that Pierre Terblanche had some great ideas for Ducati. Aside from the iconic but rare Supermono, he managed to evoke Ducati’s classic style in modern machinery with his line of SportClassics and, while the style of the original MH900e might have been a bit overwrought, there’s certainly no denying that it looks like nothing else on the road. Fortunately, the Sport1000, GT1000, and Paul Smart that followed were much more conservative, yet still striking and very elegant. After an initial rush of buyers, demand for the SportClassic line tapered off, and only the GT1000 is still in production today.

Today’s Featured Listing is among the rarest of the breed: just 2000 of the 2006 Paul Smart Limited Edition bikes were built, and all featured silver half-faired bodywork and a green frame designed to evoke the bike ridden to victory by Paul Smart at the Imola 200 in 1972.

2006 Ducati SportClassic Dash

The SportClassic models were all powered by Ducati’s venerable air/oil-cooled, two-valve “L” twin 1000DS engine. The “DS” signified “DualSpark” twin-plug heads that allowed efficient combustion across the relatively large surface of the pistons and, in this configuration, the twin put out a claimed 92hp, although it’s not a motor known for top-end revs and generally runs out of breath well before redline. But with a fat midrange and charisma to spare, it’s a spectacular street motor and, obviously, valve-float is never a problem on a Desmo motor…

Original versions had a wild tubular swingarm with a shock/spring combo on the left side, like a twin-shock setup with one side missing. Shotgun pipes on the right balanced the look out. Unfortunately, this configuration precluded passenger accommodations and early Sport1000 and Paul Smart SportClassics are solo affairs.

Later versions changed to a dual-seat but lost the cool swingarm, going to a more conventional dual-shock set up at the rear. Wire wheels were a clear nod to style over performance, although they did feature tubeless Pirelli Phantom tires designed with vintage looks and modern performance in mind.

2006 Ducati Paul Smart Limited Edition for Sale

Selling my 2006 Ducati Paul Smart Limited Edition – very, very, rare!

This bike is a two owner bike with only 1,000 miles. No stories, issues, accidents, etc. and has been stored in a heated garage. This bike is extremely rare and comes with the two best ‘unobtanium’ accessories:

– Factory lower side fairings (factory ~ not aftermarket knock off’s)
– Termignoni 2×1 single exhaust with up map (black powder coated to match original look)

I’ve also installed the clear clutch and belt covers for an extra clean look. No other modifications of any kind and all factory parts (exhaust, chrome clutch cover and black belt covers).

If you are looking at this bike you know that they are extremely hard to find, especially given low miles and accessories. Please note that I’m not interesting in selling the lower side fairings or Termi separately

Perfect bike for the enthusiast / collector and in absolute pristine shape. Feel free to contact me at three one zero six nine nine seven three seven seven if you are interested. Please no low ball offers, scams, etc. or text messages.

Demand for the SportClassic line petered out after just a few years, but they have held their value extremely well and all versions command very good money on the used market. The seller is asking $22,500 for this Paul Smart, which is pretty big money for a SportClassic, but the bike does feature the factory side fairings that more closely resemble the ones on the original race bikes, along with a classic Termignoni exhaust. While I prefer the truly wild Zard two-into-two pipes for the early SportClassics, you can’t go wrong with Termi pipes on a Ducati.

In nearly-new condition with just 1,000 miles on the clock, this particular example is one of the best you’re ever likely to find, so if you are looking to add a SportClassic to your collection, you can’t go wrong with this one.
