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 ?

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.

2001 Ducati 748RS Original Factory Race Bike

The 748RS bikes were sold for privateer race use and this one is still in unused condition!  Located in Riviera, California is a 2001 Ducati 748RS.  The seller states that this bike has no track use since he acquired it and it looks to have had very little prior to that.  This bike still shows original bodywork–excluding upper fairing because of a tip over–and looks to be in very good condition.  The bike included the original MagMar dash, Ducati Corse rearsets, factory manual, parts catalog and extra sprockets.  The motor has been blueprinted by Jeff Nash.  The RS is a stripped down version of the 748 with lightweight bodywork, race wiring harness, exposed cam belts and Supersport spec engine internals.  If you’re looking for an ocassional track day bike or living room piece, this would make a very rare–and interesting–addition to any collection.  The asking price is down to $12,500 and includes an extra set of body work.  See the bike on the Speedzilla forums here.

2002 Ducati MH900e Mike Hailwood Evoluzione for sale in Brooklyn, NY

2002 Ducati MH900e Mike Hailwood Evoluzione (#0754 of 2000) for sale in Brooklyn, NY

The MH900e Mike Hailwood Evoluzione is  limited edition bike and only 500 units made it to the US, so they are not a very common sight.  I was already quite excited to find one (#1267 of 2000) for sale in CA, but I found yet another for sale in Brooklyn, NY!  This time it’s MH900e #0754:

This MH900e only has 631 miles on the clock, and judging from the photos, it leads a pampered life.  I’ve always liked the MH900e and even though the riding position has been described as “crippling”, I definitely wouldn’t mind having one of these to flog around the streets of Hong Kong.

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.

Check out previous 900SS SL listings on RSBFS.  Oh, here’s the link to the ad: 1993 Ducati 900SS SL for sale in Sacramento. Enjoy!

1998 Ducati 900SS FE for sale in San Francisco

Bargain 1998 Ducati 900SS FE (Final Edition)!

My first post on RSBFS was a 900SS FE and I have always liked the classic lines of the old air-cooled Supersports.  For most people and for most street riding, these bikes are more than enough to get that stupid grin on your face without getting into too much trouble.  And $4500 will get you this very nice 1998 Ducati 900SS FE Final Edition (#30 of 300) for sale in San Francisco:

Final Edition #30
10670 Miles
All Stock except for AFAM front & 39tooth Rear Sproket (1k miles)
1k miles on brakes and tires
Magnetic Tank Bag
Battery Tender
2nd Owner
Minor Cosmetic scratches and rear light lense cracked

So there are some cosmetic scratches and the rear lense is cracked, but what do you expect for a 12 year old bike?  And for the bargain asking price, I can easily over look the minor details.  FEs have been hovering around the $5500 – $6000 range, so this one’s a steal.

Also check out Ed’s 900SS/FE website – chock full of good info.  If you end up getting this or any other 900SS FE, don’t forget to get your bike in the 900SS FE registry as well!

Finally, just to show that Supersports can be Supersexy as well, see this tricked out 900SS FE special done up by performance parts dealer Motowheels complete with BST carbon fiber wheels, carbon fiber tank, Rizoma goodies… hmm….

1991 Kawasaki ZX7R K1 Ninja

Located in Eugene, Oregon is a fantastic 1991 Kawasaki ZX7R Ninja with 9,900 original miles.  The seller states that this bike is completely stock except for the windshield.  As standard this bike has 39mm Keihin, flat-side, carburetors; unrestricted engine, close ratio gearbox, aluminum tank, adjustable front and rear suspension, single seat and 5kg lighter than the standard version.  This bike comes with the Kawasaki books, repair manual, battery tender, cover and also comes with a new battery, exhaust gaskets, hoses, chain and more.  This bike is very close to me and I’d love to have it, but, hopefully one of our readers can help the seller out!  The seller’s asking price is $4,000.  See this bike on Craigslist here.
