700 Mile Ducati 750 F1 available in Colorado

1986 Ducati F1 for sale

The Fay Meyers dealership seems to frequently source unobtanium bikes such as the Modial Piegga, Ducati Supermono, Honda NSR and now an ultra low mile tricolor Ducati 750 F1. The last 750 F1 listed on rare sport bikes for sale back in January and went for a cool 18k. This one has lower mileage (1140 kilometes = 708 miles) but seems a bit more nicked up than the one listed back in January. With 3 days to go, it will be interesting to see if anyone adds it to their collection.

Stunning 1987 Ducati 750 F1-B in Texas

1987 Ducati 750 F1-B for sale

Stunning is one of those moto-journalism catch all keywords isn’t it? But I can’t help it when the the early tri-color SuperSports come up for sale, especially in the condition this one is in. It’s littered with thoughtful upgrades and includes spares to return to stock as well. With what looks like an honest 11k miles bidding has been brisk and already passed the reserve, currently at $18k with 4 days remaining.


1987 Ducati 750 F1 for sale on eBay


from the seller:

You’ll have to look long and hard to find a nicer F1-B than this one. Here’s an extremely clean and low mileage example of one of Ducati’s most beautiful creations. This particular model has the addition of a Verlicchi aluminum swing arm and an Ohlins rear shock. Almost all of the engine and chassis nuts and bolts have been replaced by stainless steel equivalents, most of the zip ties on the bike are wrapped in shrink wrap as to not scuff the paintwork and the bodywork hardware has o-rings under them to keep the bare metal off the paintwork. There’s also an extensive inventory of spare parts and all take off parts are included. It’s not only cosmetically beautiful but the engine has has a complete tune-up, replacing the belts, spark plugs, valves properly adjusted, carbs balanced, brakes bled and new tires. This bike needs nothing except a loving owner. I’ve had the bike for just over 10 years and I think now’s the time to share the enjoyment I’ve had owning it with another interested enthusiast.

2006 Bimota DB5 R For Sale in North Carolina

Update 6.2.2013: SOLD!

Update 3.24.2013: This stunning DB5 R is being relisted for consideration after previously being listed last March. Owner has included a more thorough description and is selling directly. Good luck with the sale Chris!

Chris emailed to alert us that his gorgeous DB5 R is now available from his private collection. Only the R models got the tri-color paint scheme and under that paint scheme is a carbon fiber fairing also exclusive the R. The lightweight OZ wheels are also part of that package.

We’ve posted a handful of DB5 R’s previously and the $19,995 asking price is in line with what we’ve seen historically. And in keeping with the usual Bimota theme on RSBFS, this bike sports a mere 2900 miles.

The seller’s quote:

2006 Bimota DB5-R

Like new original condition in pearl white, red and green Tri-color. Bone stock with no modifications or enhancements. Bimota registry number 77

All original paint in spotless condition without a mark or scratch anywhere. Laser cut 3M protective film covers most of the bike and can be easy removed if desired. Brand new Metzeler Sportec M5 Tires. Always garaged and covered on a battery tender and exercised every 6 weeks.

I have all the books, documentation, certificate of origin and extra un-used key as well as the original silk Bimota factory cover.

I am a long term multiple Bimota owner and collector. This is a very rare piece and will not be easy to find in this condition. I have taken very good care of this bike for about 3 years

We have many more detailed photos that we will be happy to send or provide any specific photos that you may be looking for.

Miles: 2,663

Cliff notes on the DB5 R:
– utilizes the 1000DS V-Twin from Ducati, which is good for about 90hp. Not a lot but only weights 370lbs!
– designed by Roberto Commini who also penned the V Due.
– adjustable Ohlins suspension.
– nearly $40k new.

Good luck with the sale Chris!

1988 Ducati 750 F1 with Just 4000 Miles

1988 Ducati 750 F1 For Sale

I don’t know about you but spring fever is coursing through my veins and beautiful modern classics like this suddenly have me checking account balances. This 88 750 F1 has just 4k miles and an opening bid of $7500 reserve not met. While it’s criminal she hasn’t been ridden more, now is your chance to make that right!

1988 Ducati 750 F1 For Sale on eBay


quote from the seller:

Here is an incredible example of the “Last of the Real Ducati’s”. Taglioni’s last Ducati. Per my correspondence with Ducati, there were only 134 1988 F1 750 USA models ever made. Making it rarer than the F1 specials and even the infamous green frame. This one has been in my collection for 6 years. It is exactly how it left the factory! Unaltered in anyway, right down to the last bolt and sticker. Even the plastic ties on the frame are where the factory put them. Included in the sale is the original tool kit in mint condition and the original owners manual.

Modified and Beautiful ’91 Ducati 851

Location: Pacific Palisades, CA Mileage: 14,500 Price: Auction

'91 851

91 851

Update 1.7.2013: This 851 failed to meet reserve when first listed last month at $6900 but is now relisted and seller notes a lowered reserve. Links updated. -dc

The Ducati 851 is one beautiful bike, one of the best in the Ducati all time line up. This bike is a stunner in the looks department and seems to have upgrades galore, so should be fun in the riding department too. We don’t believe this to be a factory tri-color, but it’s very well presented anyway!

Here’s the seller’s description with the list of aftermarket goodies-

1991 ducati 851 near perfect condition with lots of hard to find parts:

Giacamoto spaghetti exhaust

high comp pistons

sps cams

light flywheel

barnett clutch

magnesium wheels

white stock wheels available for sale as well

aluminum rear subframe

brembo GP masters

ISR 6 piston calipers

floating rotors

magnesium side case

new battery

sato bars

evoluzione clutch slave cylinder

single seat tail

Approximately 14500 miles, the speedo was disconnected when the new magnesium wheel were mounted about 1000 miles ago. there is also a small scratch on the swingarm that is visible in the pics.

Otherwise the bike is in near perfect condition and remains a well cared for member of a collection of exotic italian sportbikes.

$500 deposit required upon winning the auction, remainder to be paid in person.

Pickup and delivery will be the sole responsibility of the buyer.

Please contact me with any questions that you may have.

And pics-

This thing looks pretty darn clean and depending upon what you like, the parts may or may not please you. The mileage isn’t super high and hopefully maintenance has been done along the way. Not much else to say.

So if an 851 is something you’ve been wanting under the tree, here’s a chance. And just think, after you get it you can ask for Ducati cologne as a stocking stuffer! To make your Christmas wish come true, make the jump!
