Pasta Run! 1982 Ducati 900 Supersport


31 years away from being new, this 1982 Ducati is a classic bike that still looks great. Reported as original paint and sitting just shy of 24,000 miles, this bike offers traditional cafe racer styling with loads of collector bike appeal. With an air cooled, desmo L-twin engine, this model was one of the last of the bevels ahead of the stunning Pantah.


From the seller:
Classic extreme machine! original paint has some body scuffing on the tank and light nicking along the inside edge of the front fender, otherwise for 30 year old paint its awsome! this machine dont look 5 years old!.runs drives like new. prestine collectors bike. near showroom condition.

letting the pics do the talking,,,,,,


This bike is available right now in Massachusetts. Since winter is finally over and the time to ride has come, why not ride something cool and different? This beautiful 900SS certainly fits the bill. Bidders are slowly turning out for this one, with the current bid at $12,600, no reserve in place, and several days left to play. Click the link and check it out here. Good Luck!

Darwinism? 1978 Ducati 750 Super Sport

Located in Darwin, Australia, this 1978 Ducati 750 Super Sport is looking for a new home. While not the famed green-frame model – nor the desired later year 900cc machine – this bike looks good from the single picture offered by the seller. If you are in the market and know what you want, this could be your opportunity. For North American-based readers, this bike is a long, long way from home.


From the seller:

Stored for 7 years, will require fluids flushed and replaced, tyres, battery and general maintenance and servicing as one would expect for any vehicle sitting for this period of time, it gets turned over weekly.

Stainless spokes, Koni shocks, have original shocks. V2 big end, motor is re-sleeved with original bores when rebuilt, the motor was also balanced. Spares include, manual, original aluminium velocity stacks, original rear sets, original air filter canisters, tail light, blinkers, cables, cogs ect. Also included, fibreglass Imola tank and front and rear guard moulds.

These bevel Ducks have become very collectible machines over the last decade, but history and documentation is what will ultimately bring the big bucks from speculators. Not much info on this one other than the picture and a starting bid of $35,000 USD. No takers yet, but things can happen quickly at auction. Check it out here, and let us know what you think.

1982 Ducati Supersport Super Sport

For sale: 1982 Ducati Supersport Super Sport bevel drive

This classic Ducati Super Sport has, according to the seller, spent most of its existence in a museum. In some ways that is a shame; these 900cc bevel-drive Ducati twins are long-legged beasts that deserve rambling stretches of road. On the other hand, thanks to collecting souls who save such bikes, this fine example continues to exists in amazingly pristine condition.

From the seller:
This Ducati has lived in climate controlled museums for the last 20 plus years, first in Willie’s Motorcycle World Museum which was located for years in Daytona Beach, Florida. When Willie closed the museum in 2002, I purchased this bike and several others from the collection. This bike was restored in the black and gold color scheme in Germany prior to being shipped to the Daytona Beach museum, where it was displayed for the entire time the museum was open. I don’t think the bike was ever started while it was there.

I brought the bike to my museum and rebuilt the carbs, replaced the fuel lines, cleaned the fuel tank, replaced the plugs, and battery and completely cleaned the entire bike. I have ridden the bike only occasionally since I’ve had it. It still rides and runs just like it looks. This is one of the last Bevel Drive Super Sports. The bike’s speedometer is in kilometers instead of miles, since the bike was originally sold in Germany. The original kilos are shown. The frame vin # on the frame is 91360. The engine # is 93627. For all the Ducati gurus out there; if you check pages 81 through 85 of Ian Falloon’s book “Original Ducati Sport and Super Sport” you will find these numbers are correct for the ’82 Super Sport. This is the definitive book on authenticating these bikes.

This is a beautiful museum quality investment Ducati that has been pampered for years. You can ride it, show it, or just sit and look at it. The pictures are representative of how the bike looks in person. This is NOT a “photo restoration”. I have decided to reduce the collection of bikes, and am selling those bikes that I rarely ride, or that I have duplicates of the same bike. I will include a couple of shots of the museum so you can see where the bike has lived for the last 10 years.

Take a look at some of the many photos as provided by the seller. The early 1980s Super Sports were not nearly as loved as the earlier “green frame” 750s, but with graceful lines and striking black and gold paint, this bike is still a looker.

The going rate for these classic machines is certainly going up. Bidding has been spirited on this one, and with No Reserve on the auction this beauty is going to a new home soon. and see if this is what you need for your collection!

1995 Ducati 900SS/SP With 870 Original Miles On eBay

This is a low mileage 900SS on eBay!

Bike:  1995 Ducati 900SS/SP

Location:  Cincinnati, Ohio

Mileage:  870mi

Price:  $6,750USD OBO

This bike is fitted with a used FBF/Forza with some scratches, is re-jetted to match, and features a hideous fitting tank bra.  The left fairing does feature some scratches (Why no picture of the left side?) from the previous owner but is supposedly perfect, otherwise.  The seller states that they are the second owner of this 900SS.

I’ll admit, this bike sounds a bit interesting based on the sellers description; Namely, why would you purchase second hand FBF/Forza slip-ons for a 870 original mile bike?  Anyway, this is still a 870 mile bike that should be worth a look and buy barring and major mechanical/cosmetic or historical discrepancies–I would think that if you’re spending $6.7k on a bike, a $200 budget airline round-trip ticket isn’t too out of line.

No matter who you are, $6,750 is a lot of money for a 900SS/SP–and that’s including the lightweights and final editions.  The seller has ruined the fun by only offering a BIN; if/when this bike sells, we won’t know if it went for the BIN or a number considerably lower.  Regardless, make an offer that you’d feel comfortable via eBay but, I think it’d be best to view this bike in person and make an in person offer.

Would I like to have a full fairing 900SS with less than 1000 miles?  Absolutely, but not for $6,750.  See the bike on eBay .

1992 Ducati 900SS With 3,782 Miles In Charcoal/Metallic Black

This is an early Supersport in Metallic black which was only available in 1992.  Located in Stockton, California is a 1992 Ducati 900SS with 3,782 original miles.  We’ve seen one other example of this color scheme before which caused quite the discussion and can be seen here.  This color was only available in 1992 and only 13 of the half-fairing bikes made it to the U.S. but, I’m not sure on how many full fairing examples made it in.  Anyone know Ian Fallon?  Regardless of how this color is viewed, this is a low mile example of the early white frame Supersports.  This bike isn’t entirely original as it has been fitted with Fast By Ferracci exhaust in carbon and a Dynojet stage two kit to match.  The stock exhaust is included with the bike.  The bike is also fitted with Dunlop D208’s.  The seller also mentions that a full set of gear comes with the bike–useful if you’re the same size and share the same taste as the seller.  This bike looks to be fitted with the correct seat and decals which one would expect from a bike with this low mileage.  The asking price is $6,500 which is $2,000 less than the other black ’92 we saw that had 4,000 more miles.  If you like your Ducati’s black but like something a bit more vintage, see this bike on Craigslist here.

Private Collection in New Jersey

I haven’t see this website before but, Motorcycles For Sale Classic, is apparently a broker for a collection of motorcycles out of New Jersey.  It looks to have been recently updated but has some obvious errors–make sure to contact the seller by phone to confirm anything on their site.  Anyhow, these are some of the bikes that are still available that I found interesting:

  • 1977 MV Agusta 850SS with 1,791 original miles.
  • 1977 Ducati 900SS with 2,500 original miles.
  • 1986 Suzuki GSX-R750 Limited Edition with 2,358 original miles (Vance & Hines exhaust fitted).
  • 1985 Suzuki RG500 with 385 original miles.
  • Yamaha TZR250 with 22,245 miles.
  • 1984 Yamaha RD500 with 31,600 miles.
  • A second Yamaha RD500 with less miles.
  • Aprilia RS250 with 610 original miles.
  • 1995 Cagiva Mito.

These aren’t all the bikes listed on the site–and more appear in the background of photos–but again, I would caution anyone against acting too quickly.  The website listed features errors and older dates but, I haven’t seen these photos featured anywhere else and they all look to be correct and from the same location.  Titles and registration isn’t mentioned and only a few bikes have asking prices.  Regardless, take a look at the site as it may be an undiscovered mine!
