The 851 is on the top of my list of Ducati's I'd love to own. This will be to pricey for me.

How do you keep a bike for almost 30 years and only have a little over 444 miles on the clock? Iím not saying it isnít legit but itís just a head scratcher.

I think the last one, with no miles went for about 6500ish, and was listed as a project. However, that one was not stored properly.

I think this may hit $10,000.

Yes, that is a very nice one...and will go for north of $14,000+++ I predict.... :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :shocked: :huh:

I'd love to add an 851 or 888 to the stable someday to keep my Superlight company!  I think they're one of the most beautiful Duc's made....along with the 916

The Superlight... one of only two bikes ever made that looked good in yellow.  :drool:

I think that the design of the 900 SS/SP is timeless. One of the few machines, that looks better with the full fairing, than the quarter faired CR model.

Surely you're referring to a 748 as the other!  I'd like to have one of these as well with a big bore kit and black wheels...always liked the looks of the #7 Chili bike!

I should rephrase that to say  "looks perfect in yellow".  I prefer the 748 in red.  The other yellow bike I like is this one. (this is not mine)

Woof. Seems better than 11k for an SL70 though.

Agreed that the Ducati 900 is a classic beauty. I think one of the most beautiful bikes ever made.

But with all due respect, the quarter faired CR model looks vastly better than the (beautiful) full faired version.

Eliminate the negative;
Latch on to the affirmative;

I like my 1000SS a lot aesthetically. Go's quite well to. I always wanted a red one but now I'm glad I have yellow. Red is so common and doesn't seem to age as well.

Ciao

If you're not living on the edge you're taking up to much room.
