Beautiful, you won't regret it.

I have a '95 900SS carb model that I have owned for 10 years and it is brilliant - and don't believe the rubbish about reliability. I usually do all my own mech work but entrust shim and belt on the SS to a local specialist - Carl Harrison , he is a Ducati genius and highly recommended.


I generally do all my own repair and servicing work, but, for now, my knowledge of desmo motors is limited.
And seeing as the bikes last service was 1999, I felt a specialist going over the complete bike, bringing it all up to date and checking practically everything, it should now be a simple case of keeping on top of it with timely servicing.

The doubling up on bikes is now over, and they're off to pastures new, one by one..... Crying or Very sad

13k for a Strada? Shocked Maybe in the future they'll be worth that, but not yet, as far as I'm aware.
