1993 Ducati 900SS SL Superlight for sale in Barrington, RI

First year 1993 Ducati 900SS SL Superlight #814 of 900  for sale on ebay. The bike is located in Barrington, RI.

We’re having our new year holidays here in Hong Kong, so I have lots of free time to surf and found a bunch of rare Ducatis for sale.  So here’s the first of a long list of bikes coming up – a first year 1993 Ducati 900SS SL Superlight (but with a broken engine):

Absolutely Beautiful Ducati 900SS Superlight. Second Owner, I bought this bike from Ducati Dealer in Salt Lake City where it was on consignment sale. I looked long and hard for an immaculate bike and this was it. I bought the bike with about 3,000 miles on it.

The bike was serviced one year ago by Ducati dealer in South Kingstown, RI. I think they did something wrong with the desmo valves (but won’t admit it) becuase I rode the bike for 12 miles before the engine seized a few blocks from home. It sounded like a rod let loose at 6,500 rpm. The bike has sat for a year. I was going to either drop a replacement engine into it, or have em look at it and do the repairs.

The bike has been sitting in my heated garage since last august 2009. I have absolutely no time to ride this bike and it would be a great deal for someone. The only flaws are a broken exhaust bracket (shown). Bike has termi carbon exhausts, super low miles, no corrosion or rust etc anywhere. Just a 9 out of 10 show bike I was going to keep forever, now wasting away with a broken engine. The bike is absolutely original down to every carbon part and Marvic magnesium hub wheels. Will not ship, best offer wins. Please email with any questions. Comes with custome Ducati Bike cover and battery charge lead for battery tender.

Please check the listing for the full description as the seller has posted quite a bit of information in addition to the above. .

Some of our regular readers may know how fond we are of the 2V air-cooled Ducatis, and the first year Superlight with the 2-piece Marvic wheels is definitely high on our list.  This sample seems to be in pristine condition with the exception of the broken engine (I’m guessing it’s a dropped valve), which could potentially turn out to be a costly jobs.  However, for the more mechanically inclined Ducatistis among our readers, it’s a good opportunity to pick this up for a good price, fix it up for chips, and have a superb Superlight in your collection!

1993 Ducati 900SS Superlight!

Now this gets me excited – a rare 1993 Ducati 900SS Superlight with 42,000 miles for sale in Sacramento.

I have a preference for Ducati’s Supersport (over the Superbikes) as they make better “real world” street bikes with a good dose of old world charm and character from the air-cooled lump.  Of the Supersports, the two most desirable models are the 900SS FE Final Edition as it is the most refined of the air-cooled SSs; the other is the first year (1993, for the US at least) 900SS Superlight, with the signature white frame and 2-piece Marvic wheels:

1993 Ducati 900 SS Superlight, one of 300 that were imported for sale by the orginal owner for only $5,000. This bike has been well cared for. It has Fox shock, forks revalve by Aftershocks, stainless steel brake lines, Corbin seat, has only 42,000 miles. This bike is in excellent shape.

I think the 1993 Superlight is one of the best looking Ducati’s ever, and at $5000, it’s a lot cheaper than other SL’s on the market.  Granted, the mileage is quite high on this one, but if the bike is in good condition then it would be a nice addition to any collection.
