1977 Ducati 900 SS For Sale SOLD
A Survivor - 6409 miles from new

I purchased the square case from GP Cycles in San Diego in 1996. As far as I know, the bike had been purchased from or taken in trade by the original owner, so depending on how you look at it, I'm the 2nd or 3rd owner. Although I can't quite remember, I seem to remember riding the bike back up to my home in Los Angeles. I gave it a wash, did a little straightening up, then put it on its stand in the living room. It's moved around the house, but always stored inside. Ridden very occasionally, I've always maintained the bike in running condition, carrying out general routine maintenance and keeping the general function of the machine nominal. I do all the work on this, and all my bikes. I've probably put a couple thousand miles on it since I brought it home.

During the pandemic, the bike was not ridden and sat for upwards of two years- in preparation for sale, I've re-tyred the bike with Dunlop D404's (proper original sizes), had Steve (owner of Bevel Heaven) rebuild the front calipers, replaced rear pads, fresh oil change, cleaned up the carbs and rebuilt the pumpers. If properly primed, the bike will always start on the first kick.

Engine and frame numbers seem to line up. The original lead seal is on the case, so it hasn't been apart or so I assume. Mileage seems artificially low, but the odo has always worked since I got it so you never know.

Transparency: I changed-out the front master cylinder almost immediately upon bringing it home, as the original was leaking and taking the paint off the inside of the right front fairing. I also changed-out the rear shocks for a set of Works. I have the original shocks and they are provided with the bike. The bike has a Lucas-Rita aftermarket ignition setup - not surprising- that sits on the aft desmo gear housing- where a "gazer" would be". The original headlight bezel was painted black when I got it so I recently had it re chromed.

Frame is almost certainly original paint. The tank and glass are so nice it's hard to imagine they weren’t repainted, but, again, hard to know.

So, there you have it - a pretty nice example of a near-original un restored square case.
