2007 Ducati SportClassic Sport 1000S – one of a kind!

One of a kind 2007 Ducati SportClassic Sport 1000S for sale in San Diego.

The Ducati SportClassic Sport 1000, while a very nice bike, is not exactly what I would call rare (the Paul Smart LE rates a little better), but this fine example is an exception to the norm.  And with the SportClassics being entirely removed from the Ducati lineup for 2011, perhaps they will become rare and collectible in the future. Who knows. In the meantime, have a look at this one:

Up for sale is my pride and joy, 2007 Ducati SportClassic Sport 1000S , Truly one of a kind.
It started life as a regular 07 Sport 1000S and got a FEW upgrades and extras, which include but probably are not limited to;

-Ohlins Steering damper.
-One of 10 fender eliminators in the world (most sought after and disc.)
-Termignoni exhausts , race ECU and K & N performance air filter.
-Adjustable front forks , new , take off of a 2007 Sport 1000DS.
-Gold painted Marchesini wheels off an ST – extremely light and nimble.
-Lower Full fairing (have half fairing securely packaged away.)
-black/red pazzo levers.
-Paul Smith fork guards.
-JC PakBikes license plate relocator.
-GTRossi short rear hugger

The rims are shod with Michelin Power and probably have about 200 miles on them.
The mileage is approaching 7000mi , with scheduled maintenance done at 600mi , 1500 mi and oil and filter change at 4500mi.
The tail has been signed by Cook Nielsen #31 of Ducati Old Blue/New Blue fame and was clear-coated afterwards.
The bike is literally too beautiful for wards and really has to be seen in person.

I am asking $9000 for this red rocket and when you see her in the flesh , you will see why.
you can text or call 858-3367700 or email above for questions , hi-res pics etc.

Considering that an almost brand new Paul Smart LE we listed earlier sold for $9723, this Sport 1000, with all the extra bits added on, doesn’t sound too far fetched. But it isn’t a limited edition like the Paul Smart is.  Whether the “LE” label is worth a few hundred extra is anyone’s call, but one thing’s for sure – this Sport 1000 is a rider and not a museum piece.  And that’s not a bad thing.

Paul Smart Replicas: 2006 Ducati Smart LE W/40 Miles & 1980 NCR Smart Replica

Paul Smart Replicas: 2006 Ducati Smart LE W/40 Miles & 1980 NCR Smart Replica

Well, are you a modern sort of guy or retro minded?  The thickness of your wallet might sway the direction you lean.     

 _______________________________________________________________ 

   

Let’s start with the modern.  Another Ducati, another bike hardly ridden.  I don’t know,  maybe 40 miles counts as never ridden.  Either way you have a shot at basically a brand new bike.  I wasn’t too impressed with these bikes when they first came out but they have definitely grown on me.  There is one part that hasn’t grown on me though.  Can you guess?  Who the hell designed that exhaust pipe?  How can a company that designed the Desmosedici design that?  Did someone call in sick the day the exhaust was supposed to hit the CAD?  I know, I know, almost everyone replaces them anyways.     

The details on this bike:    

 Bone stock, 2006 Paul Smart 1000 LE, one of a limited edition of 2000. Never dropped, dinged, or really even driven. Currently the bike has 36 miles on it, Always stored indoors, showroom condition. All the little stickers, factory registration marks, etc are intact and present. Original manuals, papers, keys. Clear title in hand, sold by original owner. Vin # ZDM1WABP36B000935
      

 If you are looking at this, then I probably don’t need to tell you about this bike, Paul Smart, the racing, the limited edition. A very rare, quintessential Ducati. The sound of this bike alone is intoxicating. Throaty, low and resonant, with a sharp bite. coupled with the classic dry clutch.       

Please inquire if you are serious. No low ball offers please, I’ll hold on to it if it doesn’t sell for a fair price. What is a fair price? This bike listed new for 14,995 and as a limited edition, was not discounted.       

Local inspections welcome. All payments must clear before bike can be released. Cash or PayPal preferred. All other arrangements must be made in advance and vetted with me, the seller and owner of the bike. I can assist in shipping, but shipping arrangements are the responsibility of the buyer. A deposit of $500 is required within 24 hours of auction end. Fly in, drive out welcome.       

 

Right out of the showroom or living  room:     

   

 

 Considering the original MSRP, the lack of sales tax and the incredibly low miles on the bike I would think there would be a little interest in this bike.  Be sure to as there are more pictures of the bike available to view. 

————————————————————————————————————-   

   

I’ll admit right now I don’t know a whole lot about older Ducati’s but this darn thing just oozes cool.  I bet it has the sound to match.   From the look of the photos this is a recent replica build done to a 1980 Ducati.  I’m sure most Ducati lovers have heard of NCR as they do a lot of high end Ducati builds.  I must admit defeat though, I really couldn’t find any info on this particular bike so I defer to any RSBFS readers who would like to comment with more info on this bike.  I wish I had more info because this  baby isn’t cheap.  $25,000 big ones if you choose the buy it now option.  I have a feeling you’d be the only one with one of these at the next Ducati gathering you attend.   

From the auction:   

 RARE 1980 DUCATI  900 SUPER SPORT ,PAUL SMART REPLICA ,BUILT BY NCR ,BEAUTIFUL TIME WARP RACE BIKE ,WITH 40MM DELLORTO CARBS ,JET COATED RISERVATO EXHAUST SYSTEM ,GEAR GAZER ,IMOLA TANK WITH SEE THRU STRIP .ALL STOCK PARTS  INCLUDING MINT COMPLETE CONTI EXHAUST SYSTEM ,STOCK TANK ,STOCK FAIRING ,STOCK DUAL SEAT ,STOCK GAUGES  WITH ALL WIRING ,BIKE RUNS INCREDIBLE ,MAY HAVE IMOLA CAMS ,I DO NOT KNOW THE RACE HISTORY OF THIS BIKE ,IT HANDELS FANTASTIC ,DRAWS CROWDS, ALL BOLTS SAFTY WIRED ,RACING VEGLIA TACH ,IMOLA LIGHTS ,GREAT BIKE TO VINTAGE RACE OR SHOW ,EASILY CONVERTED TO STOCK BUT WHO WOULD WANT TO ? WE AT BUYERS EXPENSE CAN SHIP WORLDWIDE ,THESE 900 SS DUCATIS ARE NOT GETTING CHEAPER ! THIS BIKE IS IN INCREDIBLE CONDITION AND ALL NCR PARTS ARE GENUINE ,BIKE HAS CLEAN CALIFORNIA TITLE ,BID TO WIN ,REASONABLE RESERVE ,,DONT LET THIS ONE GET AWAY !!   

And the good stuff:  

   

This is another one you need to check out on Ebay if for nothing more than the photo’s.   .

2006 Ducati Paul Smart Edition with only 375 miles!

I know this guy who almost bought one of these a couple of years ago. We were at the Seattle Motorcycle Show and stopped by Ducati Seattle on a whim. They wheeled out this Paul Smart Edition:

Somehow after dozens of rounds of beer and whiskey that night, we weren’t able to convince our friend to buy. He’s regretted it ever since.

Check out this

2006 Ducati Paul Smart 1000 LE For Sale

quote from sellers listing:

This is an “as new” limited edition Ducati Paul Smart Edition. This is one of only 500 motorcycles available in the US. This is one of two purchased by this owner and has been kept in a climate controlled environment since delivery. Motorcycle has less than 400 original miles. This is a rare and important motorcycle.

While I realize these aren’t as rare as the MH900’s (though as well!), they are limited editions and evoke all the right emotions when you see them in person. Here’s your chance to get an almost new one 4 years later.

2006 Ducati Paul Smart 1000LE For Sale in Orange County

Here’s a really sharp and practically untouched Paul Smart with less than 300 miles on Craigslist for $14000:

2006 Ducati Paul Smart For Sale

quote from seller’s listing:

Collector quality Paul Smart with only 298 miles. Come with all books, keys, bike stand, bike cover, original exhaust, original rear license plate fender. Not a scratch and as new. Never been registered.

Price is a little stiff considering these aren’t too hard to find, but it’s tough to argue with the miles.

2006 Paul Smart 1000LE For Sale in Lynnwood

I spotted this bike for sale on DesmoNorthwest. While not exactly what you’d call rare, they’re definitely not commonplace either. And for $9700 I think you do a lot worse if looking for something special.

2006 Paul Smart 1000LE For Sale on Desmo Northwest

quote from DesmoNorthwest post:

OK guys, I’ve got to trim the herd of bikes in the garage. You know you have too many bikes when you have to start bugging your kids to store your bikes in their garage. Up for sale now is the Ducati. This one is going to hurt. The bike resides just north of Seattle.

This is probably the sexiest machine you’ll ever wrap your legs around.

The bike is basically stock…. because stock is pretty friggin’ impressive. She’s suspended with Ohlin’s suspension and has a nice throaty growl from the stock exhaust.
