This is not a FLASHY look at me type of build. This is a very conservative looking bike built with the best parts available. It was built to perform and not to get attention. Anyone who knows motorcycles will immediately see the value in this bike but it is not obvious to those who don't know.
Parts and work done to bike we all done by the best Ducati mechanic in the USA. The 2nd to last photo shows the fit between the tank the frame mounts. As you can clearly see there is no gap so the tank is not loose and fits tight as new without that goofy spacer kit Ducati supplied to all their loyal customers to fix the warped expanded tank issue. This tank should get coated prior to regular use if your going to run pump gas, as mentioned this has only ever had race or aviation fuel so no ethanol issues. The motor was built to run on pump gas.

This bike received the BEST OF THE BEST in parts and mechanics. As you can see in the photos the intake ports were welded shut and remade to be a direct shot into the cylinders. Ducati uses long intake tracts which rob the motor of power. This modification allows the intake charge to shoot directly into the cylinder with no obstruction. These heads have never been duplicated and the guy who did them no longer does motorcycle heads. He was one of the best in the world.
The fuel has always been race fuel so there has been no expansion of the fuel tank, as you can see in the photos the pucks are tight and fit perfectly as new. Tank still has the OEM warning stickers on it.
Im not sure what else to say about this bike other than the fact that I was out riding with my friend on his Desmosedici and we did a 2nd gear roll on race and it took him 1/2 mile and he finally passed me at about 130MPH. He was shocked how fast the bike was and could not believe that it took off and pulled away from his D16RR.
Obviously the bike does not get ridden and that is why im selling it. I have a lot of other bikes that also do not get ridden and am trying to narrow down my collection to 2-3 bikes. If you have any questions please contact me. Most of the parts on this bike are no longer avaiable and they were seriously expensive to begin with. The heads would cost $7500 to duplicate alone, the exhaust was $5500, Calipers $5000. IOf you add up just the parts you have about $33000 including the head work, this does not figure in any of the 30 hours of labor which would be another $3000.
I will entertain offers but please don't insult me. This bike in stock form with 56 miles would sell for 18-20K alone. Bike has not been titled but will come with 2 black keys, one red key and the MSO ( Certificate of origin ) as pictured. There is no warranty on this vehicle. I can provide a video of it running that was filmed on 4/21/14. Belt service should be done and the belts are more than 2 years old ( I think I put new belts on 4 years ago but would for sure change them )
There are bound to be thing that i have forgotten about the bike and will not be held liable or responsible for incorrect information, omissions and or errors in this listing. The bike is for sale locally and I reserve the right to end the auction at any time.
