I've done a pretty good job in avoiding buying rare Z1 parts lately... but still, I should really probably pare down my parts stash in preparation for moving back to texas.

Still need to sell the GS750
I always advertise good parts as "I will take" not "I'm asking". You can put a lot of those hard to find bits in a box. When do you move?
Did you have it for sale last spring or were you screwed by lock downs?

I should be moving around the end of May/early June. A house I really like popped up for sale yesterday, so if it's still for sale by next friday I'm going to drive 14 hours down to texas to take a look at it and put an offer in.

I've had the GS for sale since the summer, both on here and on the local facebook marketplace. Not a whole lot of interest to be honest... other than one guy who wanted to trade a water buffalo engine for it.

$6k US, I don't know if that is a good price. It is in the middle of nowhere so shipping isn't going to be cheap.

That is interesting. I have seen a couple others, which made me think it was production, but I can't actually find any info to confirm it.
It's limited numbers don't mean much if it's not original.

IMHO if there's no info found on the 'net about it, it can't be all that special.

EDIT: Ok, so I was reading that all wrong. The seller doesn't seem to be claiming it's a 749 Fila edition, he's just saying the 749S is rare. Whatever. It's worth less than a stock version in my mind because it's been modified. So find whatever the Canadian version of the Blue Book value for a 2006 749S is, and take some off due to not being original

FWIW 245 isn't all that rare for a Ducati superbike broken down by model and year.

The 749s might be rare. But it isnt sub 250 rare.

Rare, or not, in my opinion the Tamburini 999/749 is the ugliest Ducati sport bike..... even more hideous than the Paso. The Diavel? Well, THAT’S a whole ‘nother story.
