, guess it's time to let my SS go to a new home after 20 years ..needs to be used, enjoyed and appreciated.
I hardly ever ride it anymore , and have to face the fact I'm getting old with too many
aches and pains to pilot most sport bikes these days, find myself defaulting to the BMW but it makes me smile everytime I walk in the garage , however I still have a couple of Bevels to serve as "eye-candy"
Bought the bike new in 98 , it is #16 of 300 final editions Ducati produced of that generation of the SS (91 to 98) a great series ,
I also had a 91 and 93 super light but this was/is the nicest I've had.
To make it the best for me, (I didn't like the "fuel infection" and looks of the 99's) I took it to my friend Jeff Nash ( owner of AMS Ducati Dallas) soon after I bought it ...to massage it and work his magic
As I recall,
it was to the tune of about 9-10k dollars extra spent back 20 years ago...I'll try to remember all what's been done .
He went all through the engine, balancing /lightening/polishing/porting, and adding the higher comp/displacement 944 kit ...added Kiehin FCR's 39's ( he advised the 39's would be much smoother than 41's for street , and he was right) I added a 50mm Spaghetti / Titanium exhaust made by Akrapovic
( very hard to get that or Termi's back then) also have the K+N filter airbox mod
Ohlins rear shock , and RaceTech mod to front forks, and then the really nice/light
Marchesini magnesium 5 spoke wheels ...Custom billet pipe hangers footpegs and fully adjustable
clip on bar assemblies,
Corbin seat, recent Optima gel battery, rear stand ,tank bag ,tinted windscreen assorted extras carbon goodies etc ..
I believe I have all the original parts , and have new tires on bike.... and sitting on the shelf , new belts,fluids/filter
I haven't got around to doing this year
It's a real sweet/ smooth/strong running excellent bike...not perfect, but it's 20 years old with 8400 miles, was in Texas most of it's life , but now a couple hours west of Seattle with old retired guy.
thanks for viewing , glad to answer any questions
oh yes almost forgot ...asking 10k
for bike and goodies
( am going to try to attach some pics but my Mac is starting to make a funny noise...may have to cut an paste this for now)
