This is a street legal DOT
approved, built for the USA market Ducati 750F1 located in the
SF Bay Area with a clean and clear California title and current
There are 1968 original
miles on this 1988 Ducati 750F1S.
The 'S' model is
basically an updated 1986 model with dual seat, dual exhaust and
a front fender from the Montjuich made specifically for the USA
market. Only 84 of the 'S' model were
produced of only 1801 total
production for the 750F1.
CONDITION OF BIKE:
Just looking at the brake
rotors is enough to see that the bike is a basically unused 20
year old motorcycle. The bike starts right up and runs, it started
right up when I got it a few years ago and I rode it about 35
miles then put it back in my shop where it has sat covered up
since. There are some signs of limited corrosion here and
there, but nothing that can't be easily dealt with. The
paint is bright, the engine is very clean.......
Everything is in great shape mechanically.
This bike looks very good
from 4 feet away. Put your nose right up against it and
you will notice the patina of 20 year old bike despite the low
low miles. Some good buffing would be
in order to minimize and/or completely smooth out the scratches
that are on the bike. There is a small repair on
the top most part of the left side fairing you can see in the
photos, paint chips on the outside, inside you can see where the
fiberglass was repaired. 15 mins with touch up paint will
cure that. There are scratches on the tank [see
photos above] from the rider's belt buckle as well as other
misc. scratches on some of the body panels.
I have complete sticker
kits in my shop, paint if needed is easy and not expensive so
getting this bike into tip top shape would NOT be a difficult
proposition. Think about it. Would you rather do a
MECHANICAL restoration or a COSMETIC restoration?
Included with this bike will be the
following new parts:
*2x PHF Dellorto seal kits
*2x Dellorto #250 float needle valves
*2x Dellorto accelerator pump diaphrams
*2x PAIOLI mechanical fuel taps
*2x brand new VITALONI mirrors [correct mirror for USA market]
*1 SHOWA adjustable shock from a crashed 500mile 916 [basically
a drop in
*1 time purchase of anything currently IN STOCK in my shop [total parts
order, not just 1 item] at a 15% discount not including
shipping [to be negotiated as part of the deal or not]. Of
course if you are in California then that would be parts less
15% + tax.
*A complete sticker set for this bike is available and will add
$249 if you want it.
*1x rear BREMBO floating rotor [brand new - this is truly an unobtanium part] is available for $495 if you want it.
It revs fine, but could
benefit from a carbie rebuild as any bike that has been sitting
for a few years would. The original vacuum taps are notorious
for being junk so I planned on replacing them with mechanical
taps as well. The battery should be replaced but it does
function, it is just old. Doing a carb rebuild and
changing out the taps would be a beneficial thing to do so I
will be including the parts required with the sale of this bike
unless I find the time to just go ahead and do the work first. I would also recommend installing
new belts as it has been more than 2 years since these were
THE FINE PRINT:
I hold a clear
California title in my name with current California registration
etc – there will be no back fees only normal California transfer
fees and sales tax that the DMV will charge. Bike would be sold with a signed Bill
Of Sale "AS-IS, WHERE-IS" with no warranty expressed or implied.
What I have said is true and accurate to the best of my ability
and knowledge on this bike. I am active in the motorcycle
community as you know, and rely on positive word of mouth for my
Ducati business growth etc. Selling junk is not what I am
about. Given the low miles and parts included, the price
settled upon should be reasonable and get me out from under it
not at a loss. This bike needs to find a new home where it
will get ridden and enjoyed more than I could....
Once we agree on the price, I will
only take cash,
PayPal if you add on 3% to cover the fees or direct bank
transfer if you are not local. NO PERSONAL CHECKS will be accepted. If
your bank has a local branch to me, then you and I can go to your bank
and the teller can hand me a bank check.
Shipping the bike to your
door if you are in the USA will add $593 to the cost of the bike
[with daily direct of course]. I am willing to take
the bike to SFO airport and drop it off at your shipping broker
additional $450 [it would take a good part of the day for me to
transport it out there and get back]. I am not able to
crate it for you.
