There are very few things that get motorcycle collectors as giddy as an Italian motorbike – and this radically restored 1976 Ducati 900SS is a prime example of exactly why.
The 900SS is one of the most revered models in Ducati’s long history.
The bike had been meticulously maintained and served as garage queen in Germany for many years until it arrived in the US.
In 2008 the seller rebuilt the bike with its square-case 864cc L-twin and five-speed transmission. He further replaced bearings, pistons, seals, clutch plates, and sprockets.
The installation of pod air filters while maintaining the carburettor too was carried. We can also see the electronic ignition module and gear gazer.
Further, we could see the blue and silver shade repainted and the number of components like Borrani wheels, Koni shocks.
Triple Brembo disc brakes, electronic ignition, pod air filters, bar-end turn signals, a 150-mph speedometer, and a tail section storage compartment.
Some stock parts are removed, and the seller offers the 900SS with the owners manual, German registration paperwork, import documentation, and a clean California title in the seller’s name.
The 900SS comes with equipment like
- Clear windscreen
- A cafe-style tail section with a storage compartment
- Center stand and a Euro-style license plate bracket.
- Borrani wire-spoke 18″ wheels with shouldered aluminium rims wear 100/90 front and 110/90 rear Avon RoadRider tires.
- The suspension consists of a conventional Marzocchi fork as well as dual Koni shocks mounted to the swingarm.
- Brembo discs up front and a single version in the rear.
- Clip-on handlebars are mounted below the triple top clamp and feature bar-end turn signals as well as a single bar-end mirror on the left.
- The black plastic dash contains a tachometer with an 8k-rpm redline in addition to a replacement 150-mph speedometer that was fitted in 2008.
- The five-digit odometer shows 8k miles, all of which have been ridden by the seller.
- Total mileage is unknown.
- The seller performed the oil change in 2020.
- If the bike is left sitting, there are fuel leaks as per the seller.
The current bid is $35,000, and the auction will go on for six more days.
