1979 Ducati 900 Super Sport For Sale  SOLD
* 6,658 mile bike *

1979 Ducati 900ss 6,658mi. you are looking at one of the nicest original unmolested Ducati’s I have come across. AT 1am en-route for late night Chinese was first time I opened this baby up over 70 over the Manhattan bridge… nothing like a 900ss over the bridge at night.. nothing looks sexier.. Acquired from the 1st owner, who was nice enough to not to take the air box’s off or the original tires and, so save every little bit and bob as he put the 6k mi on her…..Very fast, very smooth.. feels NEW

Paint details: Absolutely amazing original paint, this is of the time where Ducati would use a older style water transfer sticker on paint, when you run your hand over the decals they are super smooth. NO raised vinyl aftermarket stickers, pure vintage perfection. The decals are cracked, and should not be touched. Normal wear from minimal use.

Frame: Excellent 9++ out of 10

Wheels: Perfection, no dents, dings chips or marks — Original Pirelli Phantoms, no rotting- after a warm up they grab nicely.

Electrical details: The later Super Sports had pretty decent harnesses, and this one is COMPLETELY untouched, no weird hacked into circuits or strange electrical taping, I carefully cleaned all of the Molex connectors and installed a new Shorai battery. Every circuit works perfectly, and she charges perfectly. Even the original fuses are in place, I carefully cleaned the terminals and lubed them for longevity.

Riding: With the original air box in place, the Silentiums, and smaller carbs and a true choke circuit – you have a very quick, easy starting 900. In a lot of ways a lot smoother than with the 40mm Dellortos and the Conti’s - it's like 2 different bikes actually. With the more restricted set up you get a smoother more refined bike. I’d say only after 90MPH do you really feel like you want the bigger carbs and Conti’s. Its just a different flavor, and for city riding Id say its my preference. I have ridden So many 900's at this point, it amazes me how different they all can feel. this motor is SMOOOTH as glass, starts on the first kick every time….. Well, at least for me.

Disclaimer: Every single bike I buy and sell, I personally go through—-not someone else, I am the owner operator of my small business, and I take what I do very seriously. I work on the bikes, I ride the bikes. I have been working on this lovely Italian crap for a long time, I know the differences between the bikes, how they should work, the history etc.. If you are serious about buying true collector piece from someone who not only has a passion for these bikes, but works on them, rides them, collects them – then call me. Jokingly people say to me, “these bikes don’t seem so rare as there are so many in your shop” well….. I consider myself a custodian for these machines, they should go to people who will love, and appreciate them..
