3 owner bike, known ownership history from new. Very interesting race history, a 900SS that was used for what it was designed for. Full Service records back to 2007. Routine services done by owner and DK Design. Bike runs great, only selling because I don’t ride it enough and I need the $ to pay for house repairs. Needs tires (front tire wear level OK, but newly installed front fender rubbed tire initially; rear tire near to wear bars). Front signal stalk chrome is pitted, all other chrome in good shape. Bike is very clean and in very good shape. It is an excellent bike for someone who wants to ride their beveldrive and not worry about putting miles on a Classic.

You get the bike as you see above, and it is sold “As Is/Where Is”, with a Clear California title and current registration in Owner’s name. No warranty expressed or implied.

Asking $24,000 USD      SOLD    SOLD    SOLD
