Ducati 900SS FE For Sale

Our latest Featured Listing is this very clean and original Ducati 900 Supersport Final Edition. This was the last year for the air-cooled SS before the restyled and fuel injected models were released. These were the only Supersports to get the silver paint and they also came with many bits from the Superlight model like the solo seat, high pipes, and carbon fiber additions. The Supersports of this era don’t necessarily impress on paper but ask anyone who has ridden one and you’ll almost always hear stories of fond memories. They have enough power to get the job done quickly, handle in a very steady manner, and are comfortable enough for long journeys (I’ve done plenty myself!) If you’ve been waiting for a nice one that is barely broken in, read on to the seller’s description below and then contact the seller via email with offers over $7000.

1998 Ducati 900 Supersport Final Edition

This listing is for Ducati’s 900 Super Sport Final Edition. I’m the second owner of this collectible and limited edition example of Ducati’s classic Super sport chassis and body design. Mileage is 5800 and I took the liberty of having Northern Ohio Ducati and Triumph complete the 7500 mile service on the bike and inclusive of new battery, carb rebuild and sync, belt replacement, Ducati Performance slave cylinder, new tires, new spark plugs, check of chain tension and alignment and fresh oil and filter. You will find that the records are meticulous and up-to-date.

There were only 300 of these examples manufactured (for the U.S., 800 world wide. -dc) and this is #258 #265 as displayed on the badge on the upper triple tree. The paint is near flawless but there are a few blemishes to point out: small paint chip underneath the headlamp and another on the right cowling (only noticeable if you look under the bike to inspect). I do have matching paint from Colorite (provided by the original owner) to attend to the affected area. Never crashed or damaged whatsoever. The FE came with all the SP upgrades like carbon fiber, performance aluminum swing arm, dual floating front race brake package plus the unique single seat tail and the hard-to-find high exhaust configuration. This is a stocker example except for the dark smoke windscreen. I do not have the original windscreen but they are available. There are two fine scratches on the left muffler but non-visible at a three-foot distance.

The Final Edition has no issues with frame or swing arm complications associated with earlier model Ducati Super Sports

Bar risers would make this the perfect bike for the curves as well as extensive trips. This could certainly be an outstanding collectible Ducati for the new owner. I find myself staring at it often, weird as it sounds, but the design is a thing of beauty. I have ridden it less than 200 miles and it’s one of the most responsive, best handling bikes that I’ve ridden. Without question, it’s sound and feel is unmatched.

Thank you for viewing my listing. No disappointments here. This is an incredible find in central Ohio. I purchased the bike from AZ, sight unseen, and I’ve been thrilled with it ever since.

6-Banger Survivor: 1982 Honda CBX SuperSport with 2,000 miles


What you are looking at is one of the lowest mileage, most original CBX SuperSport you might find left around. And while a CBX is a relatively rare bird to begin with, finding one in such original condition really makes it stand out. With tons of chrome (nearly literally, as a CBX SS weighs in at 600+ lbs dry) and miles of plastic bodywork and bags, it must be pretty hard NOT to scratch, dent, scuff or otherwise harm something on this bike – even when it is sitting still!


From a mechanical perspective, the CBX is not the first in-line six cylinder production motorcycle. You can credit the Italians over at Benelli for that honor. What Honda did was turn their Engineering muscle to the task, and created a surprisingly narrow engine out of six pots by relocating everything they could behind the motor. This idea of mass centralization is taken to extreme levels by MotoGP teams today, but Honda was already well on their way with the CB-series of in-lines fours and the CBX line.


From the seller:
Up for sale, is a VERY RARE ALL ORGINAL 1982 HONDA CBX, in near showroom condition.

Collectors look no further! Many people have been interested in this bike as a regular/daily rider. We believe, and so do several other people who have looked at this bike in person, that it is entirely to nice to be a regular rider, but given its excellent condition and low miles, would be best suited as a collectors piece. It has not been restored, rebuilt, or overhauled, this bike is as close as you can get one to how they left the factory. If you want an original bike, this is the one that you want to bid on! It even has the original tires (see in pictures), which are in good condition! The seat (in excellent condition), exhaust (also factory original (6 into 2)/(3 into 1)), brakes, instruments and everything are also all original. You won’t find a finer example of one of these bikes around than this one. Pearl White, runs great, with original documentation. This bike has been stored in a climate controlled facility under a cover in West Texas (dry climate). It had been this same area since it was new.

This Bike has 1999 original miles, and is stored in a climate control facility under a cover, and is started and run just regularly enough to keep everything working and all the internals lubricated. This is a collector’s show quality bike. We have original documentation from the first owner of when the bike was purchased new. Original Bill of Sale and sales agreement from the dealership, copy of the first title of the bike, original owners manual, and the Honda Riding Tips and Practice guide from 1982. With all this documentation, this bike is ideal for a serious collector or museum.


From the seller:
It is the Pearl White, with Blue stripes, all of the original decals, has the factory side cases, faring, and windshield. Since this is a ’82 year model, it has the PRO-LINK suspension in the rear.

It is in excellent mechanical condition, everything works well, it starts easy, idles smooth and easy with no missing, runs great, and sounds great! The carbs are in good working order, and are set up correctly.

Cosmetically the bike is also in excellent condition, with no dings, and only a very few small scratches (which can be seen in the pictures), and a small section of the stripe missing on the top of the gas tank (bought it like this years ago). The bike has spent its life in a dry climate since new (West Texas, where there is rarely any moisture), and has always been garaged.

In all the years, I have not seen a finer example of one of these bikes than this one, and have looked at and owned many. Don’t want to let it go, but don’t have the space or the time for it anymore. This bike would be well suited for a collector to add to their collection.


CBX prices have been all over the map as of late. But as with all collector bikes, better examples bring better prices. This particular bike looks to be a case of go big or go home. Already over the $6k mark with reserve in place and several days left, this could set the bar for the rest of the year on these big machines. Click the link to jump over to the auction. Check out all of the pictures and details and then let us know: would you ride it or park it? Good Luck!

No Joke: 1990 Ducati 750 Supersport


This being April 1st and all, there is a tendency for some of the RSBFS staff to engage in childish shenanigans. Make no mistake, I am not above such shenanigans myself. But since Jared did such a great job on this Fiat-liveried Yamaha R1 (you DID realize what day it was, didn’t you???), I figured that would be hard to top and therefore have settled back into our normally scheduled program of bringing you the best of the best.


This 1990 Ducati 750 Supersport is a ‘tweener. It would have been absolutely top-notch and cutting edge (i.e. competitive) 5 years earlier, but by this time it was already turning into a classic; lots of good looks and noise, but lacking in contemporary performance. With the desmoquattro Superbikes right around the corner in the form of the 916 and 748, this is an era where the Supersport lineup got a little bit lost. Thankfully, time has been very kind to this model in general, and this particular example specifically.


From the seller:
1990 Ducati 750 sport. Very good condition. Not very many were made and even less were imported to the US. (Some where around 400 Units) One owner bike for much of its life. Dellorto carb conversion. Never been down. Runs great.


History has shown the Darmah-based L-twin to be a reliable and robust platform. With great torque and light weight, these Ducati Supersports are relatively nimble and very forgiving in the canyons. One of the earlier models delivered under new ownership (Cagiva acquired Ducati in the late 1980s), the modern Supersport line continues to this day.


There is not a ton of seller information on this particular bike. Pictures show a well cared for example, with relatively high miles on the clock – nice to see that somebody actually rode this one! With classic good looks and the promise of future appreciation, this Ducati represents the kind of all around performance you can enjoy for many years to come. Listed at $4,999 OBO and based in California, this bike is looking for a new home. And that’s no joke.

Brand New Bevel: 1980 Ducati 900SS Supersport


Quick! Jump in your time machine and travel 33 years back into history. Run to your Ducati dealer and put a 900SS – the baddest of the bikes from Bologna – on order. What?! You don’t have a time machine?? In that case, jump on RSBFS and check out this (reported) NEW 1980 Ducati 900ss machine. Sure, the green frames are all the rage these days, but nothing catches the light like the black/gold combination.


To get this bike, you don’t need a time machine. You likely will need a bucket of cash and a flying machine, unless you are already located near Adelaide, Australia. But flights these days are cheap, and if you already have a bucket of cash that part should be easy.


From the seller:


Ducatis have never been inexpensive motorcycles, and a 33 year old “brand new” Supersport is pretty rare. Rare enough to significantly raise the price on an already pricey motorcycle. This is not an auction, but a simple Buy It Now opportunity. What will that opportunity cost you? A mere $62,000 (or best offer). It looks like this same bike failed to sell on an Australian auction site (where the opening bid was for $50k AU) back in Feb.


How many readers have a bevel on your bucket list? If you did have the opportunity to acquire this bike would you ride it, or stash it away somewhere, keeping it new? Check the bike out here, and then let us know what you think. This is a pretty special opportunity we don’t see often. Does it fire up your imagination, or make you wonder about the rarity of Ducatis in general? Good Luck!

1992 Ducati 900SS For Sale with Just 706 Miles!

1992 Ducati 900SS For Sale

If you’ve been searching for a great looking SuperSport your wait may be over. While many will prefer the better equipped SS/SP model that came a few years later, some will agree they prefer the red on white frame combination. Personally I think it just makes the bike look more age appropriate somehow.

1992 Ducati 900SS For Sale on eBay


This example has not even really been broken in yet with just 706 miles. It appears all stock and ready for display. The owner states it runs perfectly but that even the tires are original, so I suspect it will needs some refreshing before any long rides.

Not Rare At All But Very Nicely Modded: 2003 Ducati 1000 (1080) Supersport

Not Rare At All But Very Nicely Modded: 2003 Ducati 1000 (1080) Supersport

A 1080 Ducati Supersport? Well that is where the “nicely modded” comes in. We all know a Ducati 100SS is not rare by any strectch of the imagination but I think you can argue one with these modifications and in this condition really is. Maybe best of all, I think it captures the essence of what a Ducati should be: simple and elegant. The extra giddy up is just the icing on the cake. By the way, if you are feeling your oats and want to argue I’m wrong, fire away in the comments.

Now that I’ve talked it up, lets get to the list of the goodies:

Fast by Ferracci Engine upgrade. 1080cc @ 9155 miles

PISTON KIT – 98mm 1100DS

CLUTCH – Kit, Light Pull/Lock-up Anti-Chatter

Pankl Titanium connecting Rods

Aluminum Bronze Valve Guides

Heads Ported & Crank Balanced

Lightweight fly wheel

Magnesium covers Valve / Clutch & Alternator.

Carbon Fiber belts Covers

FBF Full Exhaust Carbon

Power commander & FBF Custom Map

Brembo Race Radial Pumps Brake & Clutch

Kevlar Brake & Clutch Lines

50mm Marzocchi Front Fork with Brembo Radial Calipers

Brembo Full Floating brake Rotors

Ohlin’s rear shock

Marchesini Magnesium 5 spoke Wheels

Titanium Bolts throughout entire bike.

Sargent Seat

Custom Paint & Graphics

Built and maintained by Fast By Ferracci.

Detailed records of modifications & maintenance.

Don’t those stickers bring back good memories of booming Ducati’s in U.S. superbike racing in the late 80’s and early 90’s? Some of the items on the list of modifications had to come with a rather large price tag.

If you are thinking what I’m thinking, I agree, this thing looks damn clean. It has a little mileage on it; 16,121 miles. Has there ever been a definitive anwswer if the header wrap is worth while?

The word “sharp” keeps going through my head looking at these pictures. I think the owner has darn good taste. The bke is listed as a classified on Ebay with an offereing price of $12,499. The listing also has the make an offer option if you feel inclined.
