1977 Ducati 900 SS ~
* 2757 mile bike *
'My wonderful example of a 1977 Ducati 900SS in authentic
original silver and blue paint.
This bike has been recently renovated by renowned North East
Ducati specialists European Cycle Services of Middletown NY and
the bike remains with them to be viewed.
The engine was refreshed with new gaskets, seals and bearings
where necessary, the chassis received new steering head
bearings, the entire braking system was disassembled and
received new pistons, seals and fluids in both master cylinders
and calipers, the fuel system was flushed, fuel lines were
replaced and both carbs received a thorough cleaning with jets,
floats and valve adjustments. Both speedo and tach cables were
replaced and new key ignition tumbler installed along with new
tires and tubes and a new battery. Although the bike presents
very well and looks great, itís important to remember the
condition of the paint is original and has the usual nicks,
small scratches and surface imperfections of a bike of this age.
The bike has been thoroughly overhauled for safety and reliable
performance and is ready to give you Ė as it has given me - the
ride of your life.
Riding impression of the engine provides classic Ducati vintage
stride with train like pulling power of an engine running
effortlessly with perfect primary balance. The chassis offers
remarkable cornering stability on new tires with quite excellent
brakes and acceptably comfortable ergonomics provided by the
choice upgraded rearset kit and clip-on handlebar changes over
stock. Clutch and throttle mechanisms work seamlessly with the
left side shifter, all cogs engage positively with no false
neutrals or dropping out of gear. Gearing is stock and chain and
sprockets are in good condition as are wheel bearings, original
Borrani rims, hubs and spokes.
Acceleration is brisk, stopping power predictable Ė the bike
corners with a deftness of touch that can only be described as
sublime Ė I believe the bike will give you many years of riding
pleasure as it appreciates in heirloom value and high
