I can't sell this Ducati, I'd only get 7K, I'd miss it everytime I went to the track...
Note: Concours never ridden in rain, only used on Sundays to go to church....

Never exceeded 5000 RPM?

Ken, is any part of your ad serious?

That's a legitimate question about almost everything I say or write. However, in this case:

The bike does indeed exist.
It is for sale for $1,200.00.
The accessories listed are on the bike.
It runs great and looks super.
YOU CLAZY YOU NO BUY MY BIKE TODAY!

Oh, there it is! Yep, I would have bought it.

This site is hard to read at work sometimes. Not everything makes it through.

FWIW, I bought a '92 with 53K miles for $1900.

You get the DL?
 
Emailed you with a quote. Don't know where you stand on the DL but the quote is solid. If you need something different call me and I'll hook you up with one of the companies I rep in GA but can't sell in FL.

I wish it were true. But my 99 that I said wasn't worth enough to sell has more farkles than Mr. T dressed as a pimp on Halloween. I could go on for paragraphs but Rick Mayer saddle, Progressive suspension shock and fork springs, gold valve kit, stage 1 jet kit, fork brace, etc. etc. etc. But never reved above 5K, that part is true!:)

... the more fancy vehicle is worth less. My '85 Blazer that I sold in 1998 was a Silverado and it listed at $200 less than the basic Blazer without the fancy doodads.

Accessories done badly can really hurt resale. If you do add accessories be sure to save the stock parts for resale. I'll pay more for a stock used bike than I will for someone else's idea of a "custom".

Sarnali has never learned this lesson and his hacksaw "customizations" always cost him at trade-in time. Spool front hubs and stock handlebars "custom" bent with a length of pipe don't work out well these days.

don't forget my "Poor Boy Custom" iron rod through the baffles exhaust modifications.......

Opens them babies right up, by gar!!

I'll trade you three 3 & 1/2 horsepower B&S minibike motors, a vintage VZ24 BRNO Mauser in 8mm, 2500 cans of assorted long-term shelf life low acid foods (the Y2K survival kit. Includes such favorites as spam, pickled eggs, & potted meat). A WWII US Army generator powered by a small (750cc) opposed 4 cylinder Lycoming aircraft engine, A solid-Ox welding kit, complete with oxygen pellets. Four WWII MIII gas mask, and my Daughter's cat Moonbeam (who is quite the mouser I might add). And no, I didn't just rip-off an Army Surplus store...
