For me the 999 was the new sport bike when I was a kid. The 996 was nice to look out, but was outdated and old.
On the collector market it is about connection. The current generation of buyers has a strong connection with the 999.

Personally I think they have aged VERY well.
Ouch! I was a kid when the Z1 was the new sport bike.

I remember when the CB750/4 came out. That was the bike that I REALLY wanted, but it was too expensive for me. Held onto the 450 for around two years, worked two jobs and saved up enough to buy a used (and dropped) 750/4 for cash. For some reason, I just stuck with them for years before finding a Ducati 860GTe propped up beside a house of a mate. That bike began my Ducati love affair.

Been lazy in the shop. Mostly due to the weather being decent for riding, or relaxing in the pool.

This pile needs a new home. I have had my fun with it, but not using it enough to justify keeping it around. Would rather use the space and funds for something different.
PM for deets.

Did spend some time in the garage with the funny front end thing.
Had ordered the wrong cam cover gaskets, so that held up some progress. Belts are in, and adjusted. Valves were checked and confirmed to all be happy.
Now it is time to smash everything back together.

Knocked into a roller a lot faster than I thought it would!
Everything has been degreased, cleaned, shined, waxed, and talked dirt too at this point. Once everything is tight and in the proper spots I will try and get some proper glamor shots.
Really is cool to see all the little details on this bike.

Celebrated with a nice lunch.
