Featured Listing – 1993 Ducati 900SL Superlight #826

6.23.2019: This bike has SOLD! Congratulations to buyer and seller! -dc

Everyone has their personal definition of what’s essential and what’s superfluous, but for many, the early 1990’s Ducati SuperSports had everything you needed and nothing you didn’t.  The 900SL Superlight had one less seat and several kg.’s less weight thanks to some carbon appointments and Marvic composite alloy wheels.  RSBFS reader Steve has similarly added nothing to his Superlight that isn’t required, but made a few choice upgrades.

Ducati introduced the 900SS in 1990, and though it was a solid seller, Ducati took the opportunity to make a limited edition.  Planning to release 500, the factory bowed to the market and eventually produced over 900 Mk. 1 examples, just a couple of hundred destined for our shores.  The air cooled 904cc L-twin had newer Mikuni carburettors and scored 78 hp and 62 ft.-lbs. torque.  Upside-down Showa fork and rear monoshock were both fully adjustable on the Superlight.  Floating rotors differentiate the 320mm Brembo front brakes, with Gold Line four piston calipers.  Innovative Marvic wheels used an aluminum rim and magnesium centers.  Carbon mudguards and alloy swingarm walked the weight reduction walk.

Steve has eased the 904’s breathing with a K&N air filter and Staintune exhausts.  A Corbin seat firms things up for the rider, and braided lines do the same for braking performance.  Cosmetics are excellent and belie the 16,589 miles.  A few not-installed ugrades and NOS parts are included as Steve notes in his comments:

1993 Ducati Superlight #826

This is the cherished Superlight MK1, of which only 952 were made worldwide, 200 for the U.S. market. If you’re familiar with this bike and model year, you’ll know that it’s meant to be well ridden and properly cared for as there are not many left in this condition. The bike is in great condition and still has many original parts, unless otherwise noted.

The bike is located in Northern California, always garaged and covered. The previous owner was a collector located in Texas. The bike was serviced by AMS Ducati out of Dallas, TX during that time. No significant modifications have been made, keeping it in original condition. Some minor changes are as follows:

Open airbox (see photo)
Staintune Slip-on Exhaust
Braided brake lines
Yoyodyne Clutch Slave
Corbin Seat
Motobatt Battery

Comes with a few extras:

OEM Blank Key
NOS Handgrips
NOS Seat
Upgraded CA Cycleworks Coils (Unused, not installed)

Also have some performance parts that will be made available to the buyer as well. Ohlins shock and FCR41 carbs, not included with sale.

Asking: $13,000 USD 

Going on twenty-five years old, the Superlight had the friendly handling of the SuperSport line, but with nicer appointments and a number on the triple tree.  Though second fiddle to the 916 back in the day, the Superlight’s tractable power and limited numbers have made it a very sought after SuperSport.  Steve’s has been nicely preserved and wants only a caring new owner.

Mad About Saffron: 2000 Triumph Daytona 955i for Sale

This Triumph always makes me think of that classic Donovan song: “I’m just mad about Saffron, she’s just mad about me, they call me Mellow Yellow [quite rightly]” Honestly, it isn’t exactly mellow, but the Daytona 955i does look great in this pretty wild shade of yellow. It helps that the overall styling is simple and elegant, and there are no graphics to date the bike, but it’s still hard to believe this thing is nearly 20 years old now, and I think it’s one of the best-looking bikes of the period.

Designed as a road bike first and foremost, the 955i wasn’t intended to go head-to-head with sports multis from Japan. Which is a good thing, because in the rigorous instrumented testing that has always been popular for comparison tests when bikes are new, they blew the Triumph into the weeds. But while bench-racing and dyno comparisons may help sell the latest and greatest sportbikes and do offer an unbiased way to compare different machines, they don’t tell the whole story: then, as now, the Daytona is an excellent sportbike.

Back in the 90s Triumph made the calculated decision not to pitch their bike directly against the Japanese supertbike offerings. They knew they just didn’t have the resources to develop a bike that weighed less than, make more power than, or would turn laptimes within 1/10th of a second of them, so they went ahead and just made a pretty great all-around sportbike oriented towards the road. It’s a bit heavier, the riding position a bit more humane, the powerband more midrange-oriented, and the suspension just a little bit softer. All that meant the bike wasn’t the greatest at turning a hot lap, but a higher build-quality and timeless looks mean it’s a great bike for 95% of sportbike pilots, and those remaining 5% could ride the bike well enough

The original Daytona was available in three and four-cylinder versions, but only the triple got the nod for a redesign in 1997 seen here. It was redesigned in 2001 with a single, modern headlamp and a lighter, stiffer double-sided swingarm. That updated bike was much improved, but I prefer this earlier design, with the double headlight and the single-sided swingarm. This one appears to be in good condition, but miles aren’t especially low. The bike has the very cool undertail exhaust that several companies made for these when they were new, although I understand the official factory performance exhaust upgrade was the way to go for real improvements across the board.

From the original eBay listing: 2000 Triumph 955i for Sale

This super bike is da BombDigity! It’s a real peach with only 21, 254 miles since birth. This machine is NOT for wimps or sissy-boys. When you grab the throttle on this 955cc, three cylinder throttle monster it’ll cause your ass to grab to seat OR… you just fall off. This monster comes with Triumph stock Brembo brakes on both tires. Speaking of tires these rubbers are brand new. Heck… wearing these rubbers just mike keep you safe in a Ron Jeremy movie starring Stormy Daniels. Remember what is was like to grab ahold of something and twist it and KNOW your day just got better? Well… This is the machine that will do that for you. This beast is fuel injected with an aftermarket Trident dual pipe under the seat. It already has the Battery Tender terminals attached to the batter so you can keep that battery fresh and ready to fire all year long. On a serious note though this example has never been track ridden and has only had two adult owners. This 2001 Triumph Daytona 955i is the bike that everyone wants to talk about and everyone loves to hear. 

This beast breathes through a larger, non-ram-air-equipped airbox with 46mm throttle bodies that feed a redesigned CNC-machined cylinder head featuring 1mm larger intake and 1mm smaller exhaust valves sitting at a narrow 23-degree included valve angle. New forged-aluminum pistons force a 12.0:1 compression ratio (over the previous 11.2:1 ratio), sitting atop stronger carburized connecting rods and a lighter crankshaft. This 955i pumps out somewhere in the neighborhood of 125 rear-wheel horsepower. On a dyno run that number bore with an impressive 128 hp at 10,500 rpm showing. The rear wheel is hung on a single-sided swing arm making for a killer look for sure.

The 955cc triple has no problem pulling the tall lower gears due to its stupendous amount of low and midrange torque. Big power starts at 4000 rpm (any lower than that requires a smooth throttle hand), launching the Daytona forward through the rev band like a locomotive on crystal meth; revs climb even quicker once the tach hits 7500 rpm, spinning up far faster than the old T595 ever could. The power continues to build up top, with the Triumph’s distinct exhaust timbre accompanying the blurring scenery.

The Triumph Daytona 955i can make time with the best of Japanese track weapons through the curves; it just generates its acceleration in a slightly less frantic manner. Despite the claims of a lighter crankshaft, the 955i still has a lot of flywheel effect. This can be a boon for riders less accustomed to the precise throttle control and gearbox manipulation necessary with a typical four-cylinder. Throttle application isn’t as critical, and sweeping turns where momentum is key allow you to showcase the Triumph’s stomping midrange. 

The best part of this bike is its near V-twin torque and low/midrange grunt with a four-cylinder’s screaming top end. The 955i is very deceptive in how it generates its speed. The gearing, especially in the lower cogs, is tall enough that the motor’s relatively loping gait fools you into thinking you aren’t really traveling that fast… until the next corner comes up. That tall gearing, however, when combined with the heavy flywheel effect, means care must be taken with downshifts during corner entries in the tighter stuff to avoid rear wheel hop.

If you’d like to come by and test ride this bike you must have in your possession a non-expired license with a motorcycle endorsement, you must have the full asking price of $5500USD in cash and you must let me hold the cash, your license and the keys to the vehicle you arrive in while you do the test ride.

Does anyone actually say “da BombDigity” anymore? Questionable taste in slang aside, this is a pretty great description of the bike, although the front brakes are Triumph-branded and not Brembo units. The seller does include the picture above showing damage to the tank with no explanation, and the scratch is gone in the other pictures, so it’s worth a message to the seller before bidding, considering he’s asking premium money for this one: the asking price is on the high side for a Daytona of this vintage at $6,500. Daytonas are especially appealing on the used market and offer pretty great value: they look great, have plenty of performance for all but the most hardcore road-racers, are reasonably reliable, and have been dirt-cheap for years now, although that’s bound to change sooner or later.

Featured Listing – 2006 SportClassic 1000 with Paul Smart Fairing

Update 2.15.2019: Curtis has relisted his SportClassic on eBay and is no reserve. Good luck to buyers and seller! -dc

Ducati was comfortably ahead of the game when they introduced the SportClassic series, which had great vintage appeal but modern mechanicals.  This owner has updated his first-year monoposto with suspension and fairings from the Paul Smart limited edition, and continued the look with the front fairing in burnt yellow as well.

2006 SportClassic 1000 with Paul Smart Fairing for sale on eBay

Using the air-cooled dual-spark 992 across the range, the SportClassics had a healthy 92 hp available, fuel injected for better rideability and more modern emissions.  Around the fully visible powerplant, the black trellis frame makes its way from triple tree to asymmetrical swingarm, which was used for 2006 only.  Inside the vintage-looking spoked alloys are up-to-date 320mm Brembo brakes.  The plastic four gallon ( plus one in reserve ) fuel tank is rust proof and the owner had this one lined for ethanol resistance.

The Paul Smart was only offered in commemorative silver, and though the later 1000S was available in the much faster yellow, the biposto lacked the Öhlins suspension and banana monoshock rear.  The overdone factory exhaust has given way to a purposeful Zard stainless, and the list of nice touches continues around the bike.  Maintenance is spot-on, with just over 11,000 miles, it’s halfway to its second valve adjustment, as the owner states in the eBay listing:

Zard Stainless Exhaust
Lithium lightweight Battery
Watson LED Front Turn Signals
Motobox LED Rear Turn Signals
Near New Michelin Pilot Sport Tires w/ 1,200 miles
New OEM Ducati Tank Replacement that has been professionally Caswell lined
PS1000LE Paul Smart Ohlins Forks
PS1000LE Paul Smart Rear Shock
LED headlight
Autoclave Carbon front tire fairing
NCR Titanium dry clutch cover
Strata fab fairing conversion hardware
7,500 Mile Valve service completed
Regular Oil Changes with Motul Racing Oil
Regular Chain lube and cleaning
Ceramic coated paint
Rear shock was recently serviced w/ new seals and oil

The SportClassics continue to appreciate, especially the limited editions and single year models.  This 2006 is hard to distinguish from a factory effort, except for the premium details added.  Though the SC’s didn’t break new technical ground, they have a look any Ducatisti will enjoy, with the excellent DS1000 reliability.  Curtis requests questions and offers via eBay – here – or contact by email: howdycurtis@gmail.com

Sponsored Listing: 2000 Ducati 996 Biposto for Sale!

Update 9.25.2018: This bike has SOLD! Congratulations to buyer and seller! -dc

Iconic Motorbikes is the Premier Sponsor for RSBFS. Thank you for supporting the site, Adam and team! -dc

If you have the Desmodromic Flu, the guys over at Iconic Motorbikes have the cure! And it’s a very, very yellow pill to swallow! The whole range of Ducati’s Tamburini-designed superbikes are likely at a low-ebb in terms of values, so if you’ve ever wanted one, now’s probably the time to buy in. From the 916 that was introduced in 1994 through the end of production with the 998 in 2004, the package evolved constantly with improvements to the frame, engine, and fuel system. But the looks stayed largely the same, and the Ducati 996 offers up some pretty good value at the moment.

2000 Ducati 996 Biposto for Sale at Iconic Motorbikes

The 996 is obviously the middle-child of the line: it’s not the collectible original or the best-developed of the bunch, but has improved power and reliability compared to the 916 and prices are generally lower than the 998. Handling for all of them was superlative, and if you really think you’re a good enough rider that you’ll “get bored” with the 996’s mere 112hp, more power to you. But somehow I still think there are guys who can lap faster than you on a nice R6…

Its ergonomics are famously uncompromising, but the aftermarket Corbin seat seen here which should help somewhat, and the dash is wonderfully simple: just speedo, tach, temp gauge, and a row of idiot lights. None of which should probably be completely trusted, since this is a Ducati after all. The exhaust on this one isn’t original, but I personally wouldn’t want a 996 with the stock cans and Ferracci’s bits were apparently rebadged Arrow or SilMoto parts, both of which were of good quality.

This example has under 13,000 miles on it and has been well-maintained. There are a few minor blemishes, as described, and it looks like the battery vent tube came loose at some point and a bit of acid damaged the clutch cover, but it’s mostly hidden behind the bodywork. As I’ve said before, very few bikes look good in yellow, but the Tamburini superbikes somehow pull it off, in spite of the relatively unbroken slabs of bodywork. To me, that’s always been the genius of this design: those side panels are huge and basically flat, barring a few small vents and bulges, and yet the bike still appears lithe and elegant.

From the Seller: 2000 Ducati 996 Biposto for Sale

Fully Serviced & Ready to Go! Amazing Condition!

Very few motorcycles look good in yellow, but the Ducati 996 is one of them! Pure Italian style and beautiful in person, this example is one of the cleanest we’ve come across.

Maintenance is absolutely critical for four-valve Ducatis, and this 996 has had a complete service: belts, fluids, tires… It’s literally perfect mechanically and is ready to go. As far as the body is concerned, it is in amazing condition indeed, with only 12,741 miles on the clock. Many of these 996s have a little hazing or discoloration in the headlights, but not this one: they’re crystal clear, just like new. The motor was tuned by a well-known Ducati expert, and more info is available to interested buyers. Tires are brand-new and still have the nipples, so you’re good there too!

There is one mark on the back of the tank, perhaps caused by some leathers or a jacket rubbing. But it’s a raised mark, so I’m thinking we can polish it out. I took some Mothers Cleaner to it, but it still needs a little more work. The clutch cover shows some very minor stains, as you can see from the one picture, but most people replace them anyway to expose the dry clutch and help it run cooler.

The bike is fitted with a set of carbon fiber Fast by Ferracci cans and a Corbin seat which is a must-have, as the original seats may as well have been made of wood… They are brutal.

Want to see her in person first? Fly into LAX, we’ll come get you as we’re only about 15 minutes from the airport.

The asking price is $7,390 and, although you can find examples of the 996 for as low as $4,500 you could very easily end up spending the difference to make it right. I’ve seen this bike in person and it is exactly as described: it’s not technically perfect, but it is tastefully-modified, very clean, well-maintained, and ready to go. Basically, it’s what you’d expect from a bike that’s been owned since new by a well-heeled collector who regularly rides his bikes.

LastGen – 1999 Ducati 750 Supersport

Ducati’s long history of a 750 Supersport continued from 1973 into the early 21st century but finally relinquished the entry-level side of the showroom to the Monster.  Presented here is a near-perfect example of   the last generation of 750SS, simple, lightweight, beautiful, and promising fun.

The tried and true 748cc desmodue was under the gold trellis frame, and put forth 64 hp.  Certainly serviceable, the Showa forks and Sachs monoshock are ripe for an upgrade.  Not so the excellent Brembo brakes, 320mm semi-floating front discs under 4-pot calipers, with single 245 mm rear.  The very sculptural styling was done by Pierre Terblanche for the 1999 model year, and though controversial at the time, seems to be back in vogue.

Evidently hidden away by the previous and current owners, this 750SS is immaculate.  Except for the adjustable levers it looks factory original.  From the eBay auction:

New condition 750 SuperSport. Not a mark on the bike, is absolutely beautiful, showroom condition. Averaged 400 miles per year. 

I am the 2nd owner and purchased from an older gentleman who just did not ride the bike due to the seat/handlebar racing position. I have placed less than 25 miles on the bike since owning, 10/2015. 

Has been garage kept, covered and on trickle charger. The bike is faster than I want to ride and handles beyond amazing. Images speak for the condition but glad to answer any questions by email or phone. 
Shifts perfect, clutch and brakes perform like new. Bike is in perfect condition.

20160517 1999 ducati 750 ss right shock

While the upper-only fairing is a hallmark of the Supersport, this one has the full complement of lowers, and the yellow paint which had recently been re-introduced.  Though some engine updates were still to come for the Supersports, the styling and overall vibe remained the same until the end in 2007.  Maybe there’s room for a little compromise in the next owner’s life – not quite superbike performance, but a little simpler engine.  A few years on, but no payments.  This bike’s outstanding condition and supermodel fairing are a win-win though…

1999 Laverda 750S on eBay

Update: Originally listed in February 2010, this bike is back. Thanks for the hat tip Scott! Links updated. -dc

1999 yellow Laverda 750S for sale with low miles on ebay.

Probably not many people know of Laverda (a small italian brand founded in 1873), and those who have heard of it may know only of the legendary 750 SFC and Jota. So probably even fewer know about one of their modern sports bike, the parallel twin engined 750S:

If you are looking at this ad, you know what this is.

1999 Laverda 750 S in nice condition. Recent tires, chain and lower ratio sprockets (15 vs 16 tooth front), VeniVidiVroom SS oil filter. Runs great. Periodically the tach will stop then start again, the bike continues to run fine. The tach and ignition module is the same as was in my Ducati ST2. I think there is a loose wire in the tach. The gas cap is difficult to remove, the location doesn’t help. There are a few cosmetic scuffs from prior owner moving. Too many bikes and relocation force reluctant sale. This is a great back road bike with terrific transitional handling and a power band more like a multi than a Ducati twin. 12154 K Kilometers. Stock exhaust but D&D offers alternative slip-ons which would give it the bark it deserves.

ZLVSTA106X0001732

“These bikes were outfitted with Weber-Marelli electronic fuel injection, Brembo Gold Line brakes, fully adjustable Paioli suspension (White Power on some models), state of the art hollow spoke Marchesini wheels and a modern beam or trellis frame. With 65 bhp (48 kW) available at the rear wheel and a very rev-happy engine, these bikes were nothing like traditional parallel twins. Within a year and a half, a larger, water cooled 750 appeared with a new engine in an aluminum beam chassis developed by frame specialist Nico Bakker, which boasted very fine handling and finish quality.”

Click HERE and HERE for some good background reading on the Laverda 750S.

If you want an Italian sports bike for not a lot of money (I’m guessing this one can be had for cheap) and are sick of seeing Ducatis, this yellow Laverda 750S just might be your ticket. The current price is at $2091 with 11 hours to go – I would be very interested to see what it fetches at the end of the auction.

Consider all of the up-grades Ducati put on the SL’s to make them special and then the ones this owner added and it sounds like a great bike. With 17k on the clock it’s definitely not a garage queen and would make a great weekend warrior.

Cheers!
