OK, here goes. I'd like to sell these bikes to finance another bike, so take these off my hands, Please. No reasonable offer will be refused. I'll deliver within 100 miles of Portland, ME.

SOLD First to go: 1996 Ducati, red, 900SSCR. awesome bike, ex-larry hayden. New Corbin seat, new tires (about 800 miles ago), full tune up at 9400 miles by moto milano, newish battery, comes with manuals and CD. I replaced clutch slave, and a few other small items. Bike now has about 10,200 miles on it. The bad. larry low sided it slowly before I got it, and my wife knocked it over with her Volvo, so it's got some wear and scratches. [not the wife or the volvo--the bike] Stock exhaust. Cheap. Buy it for $2200.00. (Talk me down to 2K and it's yours)

SOLD 1970 ish CB350. Ex BFD. What can I say? It runs great, drum front, I got rid of the air box so it runs filters, OK tires, I installed clubmans, all lights work. OK Suzuki exhaust pipes. Rough tank and side covers. Easy to turn into a race bike. $500.00 or BO

3. 1968 ish 250 Ducati race project. Beautiful stock big valve engine done by BCM. Champ knows most about this, he sold it to me. Rolling frame, minus front wheel/brake. (I have an old wheel to go on it., but I need the front brake) Clip ons, rearsets, Ducati vintage racing exhaust megaphone. No carb. Stock tank, nothing fancy. New tires (Avon race compounds) to go with bike. $2400.00.

If you buy all, three bikes, it'll be a bargain for a reduced price of $4,400.00 AND I'll throw in my Giro bike, for FREE, a 1966 YL1 Yamaha TWINJET 100cc 2-stroke screamer.

Let me know. If there is enough interest I'll post photos. It'll all go on ebay next week.

Hey....that looks like a kick ass Clever Dog front brake on that Ducati....jeez that couldn't have been cheap :)

It is going on the "other" new race bike.
i should have given you the 2 grand... nice bike, unfortunately... thoses things 900 ss cost ya around a grand a season with tires and valve adjustments etc etc.... i put 10,000 on mine in a season. i will get one someday soon...

nice marzocchi shocks on the duc......

where did you get those?

make an offer on the 250. I need the dough. A lot of stuff goes with it. Another head, (In perfect condition) and I'll throw in another frame. Parts alone could be ebayed to pay for the bike.

she even let me put it inside the house.
And you think you got frustrated with your 175...wait till you spend a year racing an MT.
You have sat on it right?
Very cool little bikes.

Cool bike. Learning how to jet if fun AND expensive!
It's actually longer than the 175, and fits OK. The best part is that I have 2 years experience on sitting on a little bike, so I know what it's like already.
problem with the 175 honda was no brakes and a NFG engine.
They have some balls for a small bike...and that six speed tranny is real nice. But I've helped Yannerilla with his now and then. Engine parts are a bitch...although he's anal as hell so it might not be as bad as it seems.
But like most pipey small two strokes...they don't take kindly to heavy riders....although I remember a guy at Mosport passed me down the back straight on one...he had to be 250 lbs.
That's a tough class to play in though. Marty or Turk show up and the 1st is theirs. And Marty runs about 1:29 on his...that's about 4 seconds a lap faster than me...but then he weighs 130 lbs and his bike is 40 lbs lighter than mine....and has about 4 more hp. Turk can run in the 1:28's on his.

Ruffo used to go fast on his...and he's a big they will do it.
Great thing about them...not much to do...they are born a race bike.

not looking to win. I just, for once, for a little while, wanted a production race bike. We'll see where it goes, If anything, it is a great reason to lose 20lbs in the Spring. should always be looking to win. It will never find you by accident....well, unless Frank C. is the only guy in front of you.

I rememer seeing Fritz Augustine win ULWSV a couple of times on his TA...yes..6'4" 250 lb Fritz on a TA. So anything is possible.

( was Kevin Cameron's old TA)

Is the 250 Ducati strictly a race engine, or is this streetable?

stock, rebuilt by BCM. Champ says it's a stonkin engine, but we'll see. Currently not for sale.
