FS: 1999 Ducati 748 Biposto - 11,946 mi - $7500.00

FS: 1999 Ducati 748 Biposto – 11,946 mi – ZDM1SB3R1XB011001 – $7,500.00

The original owner worked in the industry at a local Ducati shop and purchased the 748 new. He performed most of the mods himself with the help of a few Ducati experts. The second owner purchased in 2001 and continued the build out with the guidance of the original owner. Together 15 years ago, they performed a frame up build at 7,600 miles. We are led to believe the 855cc motor that was built by Mark Sutton (DucShop), but we have not found written verification. This 748 also received a full 52mm arrow exhaust and lots of tasteful upgrades, check out the build history below.

Totally un damaged, no sloppy workmanship anywhere to be found on this super clean timeless Ducati Superbike. . The 2nd owner sold the bike in August of 2008 with 10,192 miles on the clock. Current owner titled it and put approximately 1700 miles on it his first year, tabs expired, maintenance became due, life changes happened and bike was parked in his climate controlled storage since 2009. This gorgeous 748 will come with owner’s manual, build and service records, some original parts, and 1 key.

It seems that the more we stare at this beautiful 748 Superbike the more upgrades we spot! On top of the obvious ones listed and spotted like Ohlins rear, 5 Spoke Marchesini wheels and full Arrow exhaust, we also see…

998 Brembo Snowflake Front Brake Rotors
Evoluzione clutch slave
Euro headlight switch
Upgrade rear suspension strut
Nice high gloss quality carbon bits
That real not “painted” magnesium inner clutch housing is so rare it’s not even funny!

For those who are not familiar with the 748 lineage, this is the first gen 748. This really was the true little blood brother to the iconic 916 in every sense other than displacement and rear tire size. It retained all the technical features of the Tamburini designed 916 like adjustable steering head angle, dzus fasteners to easily remove the fairings, quick disconnect lines on the tank. In 2000 Ducati introduced 2 new models the 748S which stood for Sport and the 748E which stood for Economia. The S was a continued copy of the beloved 748/916 series with the addition of 5 spoke wheels and TiN coated front fork tubes. The E retained the 3 spoke wheels and gave up the coolest features like dzus fasteners and easy disconnect fuel lines. No more adjustable steering head angle option either. Great price point but lost some luster IMO. This 1999 version is the real deal, only change from the first introduction in 1997 is the Ducati logo and font.

FS: 1993 Suzuki VS800 Intruder –  JS1VS52A8P2100777 – 40,988 miles – $2150.00

This is one owner locally owned Suzuki Intruder. Purchased new at Aurora Suzuki in 93, totally enjoyed and ridden all over the PNW.  It has been well taken care of over the years, we have all of it’s service record history.  These are such a classic bike, it does come with a nice set of leather saddlebags and a battery charger.

Here’s what the reveiws said about this model;

The Intruder 800 could be considered the original modern Japanese cruiser. Introduced in 1985 as a 700, it was the first machine to successfully combine clean cruiser styling and Japanese technology. Over the years, it has undergone only minor revisions, the biggest of which was a 4.8mm increase in piston stroke which made it a 750 in 1988 and 3.3mm bigger bores in 1992, which then made it an 800. Though cast wheels were once available, it currently comes in just one configuration. The 21-inch wire-spoke front wheel which replaced the 19-incher in 1988 is now standard.

FS: 2007 Ducati GT1000 – ZDM1WABP67B005306 -10,361 mi – $9995.00

This GT came in recently for a little service, customer mentioned he wasn’t riding it enough and has decided to let us find a new home.   This particular one has had a couple of nice upgrades.  Original owner added Ohlins forks up front and added the aluminum rims from a Sport version.  Current owner did not have it for long, so we don’t have much history on it other than the work we have performed.   New belts and all fluids were just replaced by us, this bike is ready to go ride!!

Here is what the reviews said;

The shapes of the GT1000 are modern interpretations of the classic lines of the original GTs of the 70s. The rather slim fuel tank features knee cut-outs on the sides and deep sculpting that allows a comfortable riding position. Full fender front is mounted with elegant aluminium tubing braces. The trim side covers remind us of the 70’s originals, and feature small venting holes for accent. Many of the details like the top crowns, fork caps and handlebar mounts are finished in polished aluminium, and are complimented with the chrome surfaces of the wheels, instrument trim, handlebars and horn covers. Finally, the classic look is completed with chrome full-length exhaust pipes and mufflers, one per side.

The rider’s position on the GT1000 is one of comfort and control. The chromed tubular steel handlebars enables an upright riding position to be maintained. A well-padded dual seat is sewn in a classic pattern and features ’Ducati’ printed in white proudly on the back. Rider footpegs are placed conservatively forward allowing comfort and good ground clearance at the same time. The GT1000 is a true two-seater, so the passenger’s footpegs are also sensibly placed for all-day comfort.

The advanced Desmo 1000 Dual Spark engine powers the GT1000. The torquey air-cooled L-twin is the perfect match for the GT1000’s comfort and performance attributes. Alloy cylinders, with their traditional cooling fins form the classic “L” configuration, reminding us of the original Taglioni design. Slim between the legs and exposed for all to see, the latest two-valve Desmo system, fuel-injection, computer controlled engine management and Ducati Testastretta technology ensure that the 1000 DS engine is powerful, dependable and thrilling to ride.

FS: 2011 Ducati M796-abs Monster – ZDM1RANN2BB037809 – 6,703 miles – $6,999.00


We know this monster well, it came through our store last year,  It now has a bit over 1300 miles more than it did last time.  It was actually a Monster I sold to its original owner, the second owner made no changes and did no damage, it’s getting a look over by SUB moto service next week before it gets sold.  The original owner added some nice upgrades when the bike was purchased new. Ducati Performance carbon exhaust was added to improve sound and performance. It also has some tasty DP carbon bits like front and rear fenders and some trim areas on the tank.   Like last time we don’t anticipate it hanging around long, have you seen the weather report??!!

Here is what they said about this model a few years ago:
“Ducati have continued to listen to its passionate Monster owners and used their valuable feedback in the design of the new Monster 796. The riding position has been revised by reducing the 1100’s seat height by a full 10mm (0.4in) to 800mm (31.5in) and the combination of redesigning the seat shape and raising the handlebars by 20mm (0.8in) has improved posture and increased comfort. Combined with a dry weight of just 167kg (368lb), thanks to its new lightweight engine, and the option of being equipped with ABS, the new naked inspires confidence to make life simpler in the city.

Suspension up front is handled by user-friendly 43mm Showa forks, while the sporty Ducati single-sided rear swingarm is controlled by a single rear Sachs unit, with adjustable spring preload and return damping for passenger load optimization.  In pure Monster style, the entire chassis set-up is unified into a sturdy, great handling package by a bright red Trellis frame. Lightweight and with incredible torsional stiffness, the large diameter tube construction flows into the cast aluminum rear sub-frame which matches the matte black rear swingarm and footrest hangers.

Twin 320mm semi-floating discs are gripped by radially mounted 4-piston Brembo calipers to provide powerful and progressive front-end braking with rider-friendly ‘feeling’, while the rear is equipped with a 245mm disc and 2-piston caliper, also by Brembo. The Monster 796 offers the added option of ABS to further underline the model’s focus on ease of use and everyday security.
The 17″ wheels are in the five ‘Y-shape’ spoked style and produced in lightweight aluminum to keep the unsprung weight low and handling, braking, and acceleration performances high. To differentiate the 796, the wheels sport a stylish pin-stripe for 60° of the circumference of the rim which creates a full circle of red when in motion. They roll on the same 180/55 rear and 120/70 Pirelli Diablo Rosso tires enjoyed on the 1100”.

FS: 2006 Ducati PS1000 Limited Edition – ZDM1WABP96B001555 – 7604 miles – $24,000

This beautiful Ducati Paul Smart Limited Edition came out of a good friend’s private collection.   All of his bikes are generally rare hard to find models, this is one of the 3 machines brought to us to get ready to sell and find good homes for.   This bike has been in climate controlled storage since it was purchased by current owner 7 years ago.  Sadly he only rode it less than 5 miles before it went into storage.

Our lead Ducati tech Pete just performed a full factory recommend 6000 mile service while paying special attention to anything showing signs of wear or aging.  A bit over $2200 was spent making sure everything was right before it moves off to a new owner.  The plastic fuel tanks on the Ducati Sport Classic series along with a few other models are known for having issues with the heavily laden ethanol fuel we are forced to deal with in the US.  This particular fuel tank was a brand new warranty replacement, from Ducati when the owner purchased the bike 7 years ago.  At that time he had it lined with Caswell tank sealer, it was just installed on the bike for the first time when we got it ready to go.   The bike is all stock, no modifications.  At this time we only have 1 black key and the one red key.  No cover, no stand, no manual.  Once the owner gets back into town he will try and put his hands extra key and anything else he may have.

There is so much information out there about these models but here is a bit of the history.

From Wikipedia –  “The Ducati PaulSmart 1000 LE (PS1000LE) is a retro-styled motorcycle built by Ducati in 2006 to commemorate Paul Smart’s win at the Imola 200 race in 1972, a win that helped define Ducati’s future approach to racing. The bike is styled in the fashion of the Ducati 750 Imola Desmo race bike that Paul Smart rode to victory, and the 1974 750 SuperSport it originally inspired. It is one of the SportClassic series designed by Pierre Terblanche”.

“Ducati has not invented the nostalgic “retro” formula, of course. In the last few years we’ve seen the “new Beetle” and the “new Mini” cars, and in the two-wheeled world, Triumph is having a ball with their “new twins” success. Ducati’s move was kind of expected and upon seeing the first photos of the “Sport Classic” series from Tokyo’s 2003 show.  It’s a kind of a rolling memorial to a tool that showed the rest of the world how its done in Bologna but it still isn’t really the real thing, i.e. a true bevel drive Duc.  Talking about the real thing, one blood connection that can’t be denied is the fact that the air cooled belt drive mills were designed by the man himself, Dr. T, his very last engine before retiring from Ducati, the same Doctor T that was standing next to the pit wall on that great day.

Ducati produced exactly 2,000 units of the Paul Smart 1000, hence the Limited Edition moniker. That’s about twice the amount of 750SSs ever produced between 1974/78, and you can bet that they will all be gone pretty quickly. It’s not a bike that will change the fate of Ducati, but nevertheless, you can’t but appreciate the total effort, dedication, and the fanaticism with which the guys from Bologna decided to honor the past. The very fact that this bike exists and the way it taught a lesson in history did me a lot of good”.

Here is another spectacular Ducati from the 90’s for sale.  This is not a bike you see come up for sale very often.  The 907 Paso is fuel injected, comes with 17″ wheels and is a very decent handling Sport Touring bike.   Current owner has had the bike for close to 10 years and recently upgraded to a new Ducati SS.  He has taken proper care of it over the years, cleaned up aging parts like wheel paint, new rotors up front, tires and chain kit in last 2000 miles. Valves and belts last at 18K.  This 907ie is very clean, no apparent cracking or spidering on bodywork.   Comes with a set of original exhaust, a service manual and a factory wire harness he saw available on ebay.     Last year he has 2wheel Dynoworks install a power commander and they improved overall running and gained a few hp, it runs fantastic!

Here is a bit of history on this model from Ian Falloon:

After two years, the 906 Paso was replaced by the much improved 907 I.E. for 1991. This drew on the engine and chassis technological improvements of the 851, and the resulting 907 I.E. was finally a homogeneous sport-touring motorcycle that could compete with anything on offer from Germany or Japan. The liquid-cooled engine of the 906 carried over to the 907 I.E., but there were stronger crankcases with more extensive internal webbing and ribbing, especially around the cylinder support base. The clutch was also revised for 1991, with the 907 I.E. (like the 1991 900 Supersport) having a new 16-plate type. The intake system was completely revised, with the air intakes re-positioned up by the steering head, drawing in cold, dense air. Adapting the single-injector Weber electronic fuel injection system of the 851 Strada to the two-valve 906 engine provided vastly improved engine operation. The 907 I.E. received more reliable Veglia instruments, but all other electrical equipment was shared with the 906 Paso. While the rectangular-section steel double-cradle frame was that of the 906, the longer aluminum swingarm and axle adjusters came from the 851 Strada. The front suspension was the same as before, but with 10mm-longer fork legs so that the larger wheel/tire combination would clear the engine on fork compression. There were also changes to the wheels and brakes, with three-spoke Brembo (3.50 x 17 and 5.50 x 17) wheels, and larger stainless-steel front discs with Brembo four-piston P4.32d calipers. At the rear the disc was reduced in size to that of the 851, with a smaller P2.105N Brembo caliper. The larger wheels (and longer swingarm) led to an increase in both wheelbase, but the steering and handling characteristics were vastly superior to those of the 906 Paso. While the style of the bodywork was similar to the 906, the solid 907 I.E. screen incorporated a NACA duct, supposedly to smooth the airflow. The 907 I.E. continued for 1992 with only minor changes. There was a minor clutch update during the year, and the front brakes were upgraded with larger discs and gold Brembo P4.30-34 brake calipers. The 907 I.E. wasn’t as popular as anticipated, although it offered improved power and reliability, plus more sophisticated rear suspension than the Supersport models. The 907 I.E. was a very well-developed all-round motorcycle, with excellent handling and comfort, but it was discontinued during 1992. There wouldn’t be a replacement sport touring Ducati until 1997.

How do you even begin to describe this bike?  The bike that was never meant to be??   This bike was purchased in November 2006 by a collector and has been stored away until 2014 when Moto International “woke it up” for its first time.  It was taken around the block and then placed back into environmentally controlled storage again until it arrived here at SUB last week.   1225cc of Italian Thunder, one of a kind for sure.   Bike comes with rear stand, a garage cover and a spare set of race bodywork.

Here are some bits of press on this model:

Unleashed creativity breeds the MGS/01 Corsa, a Moto Guzzi with the ultimate sporting temperament. 1225cc, 90º V-Twin. Cosworth triple ring racing pistons, and nymonic valves. One-piece carbon fiber body design. Completely adjustable Ohlins suspension. OZ wheels. Aluminum box section swing arm. MGS/01’s overall stunning aerodynamic design ensures perfect agility and performance on and off the race track.

At Intermot 2002 the MGS-01 made its debut in society. The stand where the bike was displayed became one of the main attractions at th to flow into motorcycling sites, praising the beauty of the new Moto Guzzi to an extent that surprised even the design team. Market resea motorcycle buyers held the MGS-01’s styling in great esteem. This was the stimulus to go ahead – also because customers and dealers wanted the motorcycle to go into mass production as soon as p thousands of requests. All that was left was to decide the technical specifications. The MGS-01 Corsa has more than just breathtaking lin compression three-segment Cosworth pistons, ceramic-coated cylinders and bushings replaced with bearings. The power of the engine, which “pumps” right from the lowest revs, is backed by top standard mechanics. Precise entry into bends and ro swinging fork swingarm (505 mm) in box section aluminium, improving the traction of the rear wheel and transmitting all the horsepower o behind the engine, to leave room for the 15 Litres airbox. Handling is guaranteed by the weight, kept down to just 192 kg, the wheelbase measuring just 1,428 mm, obtained by integrating the gea and back. The Brembo disc brakes with radial mounted callipers are ultra-powerful. Those who have had an opportunity to ride the MGSProject development times. The project is divided into two phases: A limited series non homologated – for racing use with 122 HP power kit; and the fully homologate Passion as a mission. The MGS-01 Corsa is a motorcycle with a sporting temperament. It is also a machine dedicated to all riders who love and understand mo tremendous competition potential and could well dominate events like the American AMA Championship.

This fully restored technically “One Owner” Triumph has been lovingly restored and it is now time to find a new home for it.   I have attached notes from its owner on what was done and by whom, it is stunning in person.

Here is what the owner told us about it: .

History of
1971 Triumph TR6R Tiger GE27096
(as known to Mel)
G = June
E = 1971
Original owner licensed GE27096 in Montana. Date of purchase is not known and city of licensing is not known.  Second owner, Carl, obtained GE27096 in the mid 1980’s. Actual date not known. Carl owned Harley Davidson motorcycles and always wanted a Triumph. Carl disassembled GE27096 in approximately 1984, with the intent of painting it. Knowing Carl as a casual friend I offered to help re-assemble the bike should he need assistance. In 1987, Carl was relocating due to employment and sold GE27096 to me. GE27096 was completely disassembled. Boxes of parts, nuts, bolts, washers, tubing, wiring, etc. The motor was not in the frame and in a varied state of disassembly, the frame and wheels were disassembled, the gas tank was primer painted with minor denting, the carburetor was disassembled, the wiring was “highly modified”, and a considerable number of parts were missing or “customized”.   Carl had the signed title from the original owner in Montana, but had not changed the title to his name. Therefore, he did not legally own GE27096. I was successful in transferring the title to my name in 1988. The reassembly project began by having the frame, swing arm, air box assembly, and rear fender powder coated by a shop in Coeur d’Alene Idaho. Due to having other projects and commitments, that is far as the reassembly went for years. GE27096 was moved and stored in heated garages until I sold it in 2003 to a friend, Ryan, who intended to reassemble it. Ryan did nothing to the bike, but store it in boxes in a heated garage until he sold it to another friend of mine, Bil, in approximately 2006. Bil stored the bike in heated garages and moved it several times to different locations, but no reassembly ever took place. I offered to assist Bil in the reassembly project. However, Bil decided to sell GE27096 back to me on March 31, 2016, in boxes. Along with the boxes of parts, Bil provided the three-ring binder copy of the shop manual that I had given to Ryan.  In the binder front cover was the title that I had signed over to Ryan in 2003. Since neither Ryan nor Bil transferred the title to either of their names, I was legally still the owner. Upon purchasing GE27096 from Bil, I successfully obtained a new title as the second legal owner.  Since GE27096 had been in boxes for approximately 32 years, it did not seem fitting to just reassemble her. So, with 11,587 original miles on the original odometer, on April 5, 2016, I began a  complete restoration, using as many of the original parts as possible and in some cases with the original patina. With noted exceptions, every part is either powder coated, chrome, or polished stainless. Naturally, the gas tank and fenders are painted blue/white with gold pin striping using the best polyurethane base coat/clear coat products available. A Triumph restoration shop, Don Hutchinson Cycle in Wakefield, Massachusetts, provided the painting to factory color codes and details. The factory color scheme of black and silver/grey frame, suspension, wheel hubs, and other body work was adhered to as closely as my research provided.

FS: 2007 Triumph Speed Triple –  SMT500PK77J291034 – 30,037 mi – $4,999.00

This very green Speed Triple was brought to us to rescue.  Original owner purchased it new from Triumph of Seattle in April of 2008.  He totally enjoyed it and reliably commuted on it for the first 8 years of ownership, logging up the first 30K.  Life changes ended the need for a commuter and unfortunately, the bike ended up getting parked outside in back yard until this year.  We have service records of local service work performed while in use, including less than 100 miles on new rear tire along with the Triumph recommended routine service records.

SUB moto-service guys just went through it, replaced many cosmetic bits showing corrosion.  The original fuel tank was severely affected by ethanol laden fuel sitting in it and had to be changed. The fuel system was completely cleaned, hoses replaced,  injectors and throttle bodies inspected, along with a new fuel filter.  A complete fresh set of  “Roulette Green” OEM bodywork including a brand new fuel tank was installed.  Along with the cosmetic clean up, we also performed a medium service which included,coolant and all hydraulic systems flushed, over $2200 was spent getting it back to good health.  It’s not cosmetically perfect showroom condition but it is ready for lots more miles of smiles.

Here is what the press had to say:

Naked SportBike, All Dressed Up

Does it surprise one for a moment that the champion of streetfighters comes from the country that originated hooliganism? That English heritage dates back to the 19th century and is both a mark and a badge. While we decidedly pass on the destructive behavior, getting a little rowdy with the throttle inevitably seems to come with the territory when riding this particular high-performance motorcycle.

The Triumph Speed Triple is a motorcycle that epitomizes the streetfighting ethos. The 1050cc in-line 3 is shared with the Sprint ST sport tourer and Tiger adventure bike. But, instead of fairings and bags, the Speed Triple is seriously naked, with its 131 hp engine hanging provocatively from the tubular fare, and unapologetically bulbous twin chrome headlights showing the way. The Speed Triple isn’t just brawny; it is clearly a bit of a bully, to

Since its original introduction in 1994 the Speed Triple has become a true two-wheeled icon. Delivering undiluted attitude and a unique presence on the road, it’s motorcycling in the most direct, rawest form available, and all the better for it.

FS: 2012 Suzuki Boulevard S40 – JS1NP41S3C210134 – 5054 miles – $2995.00

Check out this good looking Suzuki S40 Boulevard!  It was a locally owned and ridden machine.  Great running order, also comes with a small windshield.   This is one of the more popular entry level bikes in the market! 650cc, easy to ride cruiser. This one just had a minor service performed less than 300 miles ago, ready to go out and play!

Here is what the press think about this one;

It may look the part of a svelte and agile cruiser, but make no mistake, the Boulevard S40 packs a mean punch, thanks to a 652cc, four-stroke, air-cooled, OHC, single-cylinder engine with a TSCC (Twin Swirl Combustion Chambers) cylinder head and high mass crankshaft, producing strong low-end power and torque. A smooth-shifting 5-speed transmission is complemented by a low-maintenance belt-drive system that’s quiet, durable, and simple to adjust and clean, while an electric starter with automatic decompression system has also been installed, allowing for quick and easy engine starting. Lastly, a precision electronic ignition system brings all the power in and out of the bike at an impeccably sharp rate.

You haven’t lived until you’ve ridden a big single-cylinder road bike. They’re flat out a blast to ride. The Boulevard S40 takes that timeless single-cylinder design and adds a shot of advanced Suzuki technology to create a bike that combines exciting performance with rock-solid reliability. One of the S40’s major attractions is its lightweight responsiveness – it’s great for cruising down the boulevard or beyond the city limits. Wherever you ride, one twist of the throttle rewards you with a blast of low-end and mid-range torque. And when you’re up to cruising speed, you’ll really appreciate the engine’s smooth performance.
