Price: £5 950 ≈ $7366 ≈ €6786
Item location: Mansfield, Nottinghamshire, UK
This is my very special Ducati 748/853.
Built by Neil at Cornerspeed Ducati it was his personal bike for 10 years. He bought the bike back last year and I purchased it from him.
Before collection in November last year the bike had a major service:
BeltsValve ClearancesClutch serviceBrake fluidOil and filterAlso fitted a brand new old stock top fairing as original was stone chippedNew battery
The bike is now ready to ride for this year. an impending house purchase means I have put up for sale a couple of bikes from my collection this being one of them.
Specification as follows:
Later Showa front forks with 65mm caliper spacingOhlins fork springsOhlins aluminium bodied rear shock (rare)Ohlins steering damperForged Magnesium Marchesini wheelsRenthal sprocket and carrierBrembo cast iron fully floating discsBrembo 65mm 4 pot gold calipersBrembo radial brake master cylinderBrembo radial clutch master cylinderLightweight rear discCornerspeed clutch slave cylinderOpen clutch coverDucati Corse Slipper clutch (just serviced)Ducati Corse rearsetsCarbon airboxCarbon heel guards Carbon Exhaust coverCarbon chain guardLong Titanium Termignoni cans 50mm half systemSingle seat unit included
The engine was built by Neil and is his specification to 853cc. it has a lightened and balanced crank. flowed heads. +1mm valves. T1 SPS cams and numerous other mods to provide a reliable and free revving motor. Fuelling is taken care of by an FIM chip and race air filters.
The bike is in excellent condition but is 16 years old. it has all the right parts including a very special engine and it worth more in parts alone than the value of the bike.
Having just been serviced by Neil you can be assured it is ready to ride and any work that needed doing was done.
I'm open to sensible offers but to build a bike to this spec would cost thousands. dealers are asking upwards of £7k for bikes this specification and less.
I don't want any part exchange so this is a straight sale only. bike will only be released once funds are cleared or it is paid for in cash.
