This is a 94 M900 that has green rattlecan paint, could use a respray to look really good and a new set of hi-pipes in order to ditch the stocker cans and Spareshack hangers, which suck w/ this year's swingarm. Upjetted. Has CF front fender, hugger, windscreen, and ignition mount (all DP) and CF side panels and cowl (ebay slop, actually looks fine). Spare heel guards and LP relocator too. Has Cycle Cat rearsets, could use re-anodizing, CCat will do for free (I can have it done first if you'd prefer), runs like a scalded cat (that's good), just shy of 20k miles, had the cyl studs replaced (prone to breaking that era), just got a new chain and rear tire. It was stolen once, but clear title (not covered by insurance). It has the bigger, better, pre-97(?) heads. Never been crashed. There is one 2" long tank ding that's been ~95% filled from before I owned it. You can see it from maybe 2' away. Has the old school alloy swingarm as 94s are wont to. Scottoiler (and 1.5 quarts of scottoil!). Full factory service manual in binder too. It'll do 130 indicated w/ no real trouble. I didn't do it often though. Like twice. Okay, maybe 3 times.
Only selling as I am interested in another Ducati (851) for sale at the moment. It's never broken down or stranded me, and been a great bike. It's a runner, not a show bike, but a damn good one. Just took a 500 mile trip on it, it was great.
I can email photos.
Asking $3300.

Yeah, yeah. Disclosure. It's not like the whole bike is covered in the stuff.
Now, if anyone is interested or has any less useless/trolling commentary, feel free.

Re: 1994 M900 (Nick D.)

I suppose I should clarify in the chance that you are not some keyboard cowboy pretending to be all cool by being caustic in a way you wouldn't in real life and anyone is actually wondering.
Yes, it's from a spraycan.
The tank was filled, primed x2, sprayed x3, clearcoat x3, with wet sanding between coats.
Is it great, factory paint? No. Can I see the little elephant anymore? No. Is it terrible? No, it's not terrible either. Am I claiming it's fantastic? Also, no. Hence it being about the cheapest good running, presentable 900 Duc for sale. Without a huge tank ding even.
Sure better than the early 90s SSs with cracked plastics and rust I see for 4k all the time.

PM or post for info, questions, trolling, etc.

Nah...I AM that caustic in real life, just ask PaulST4s on this board who knows me personally. It's just that your description doesn't do your asking price any justice.



Look at this exchange this way; you will probably get all kinds of attention that a 94 rattle-can'd $3K M900 wouldn't normally get.

Re: 1994 M900 (Nick D.)

I find it hard to believe you'd actually laugh, but whatever. I'm a caustic mofo but not generally impolite. Anyhow, irrelevant.
I'd rather be honest about its faults than bill it as "custom paint" or some other such nonsense. Plus I didn't think I needed to type out the full fill / prime / paint / clearcoat w/ wet sanding. Guess I was wrong.
Now I know, and knowing is half the battle.
Besides, one could buy another tank (though not from the dealer) or have it professionally redone and still be ahead of the game. IMO. If I keep it I'll be redoing it anyhow.

No, I got a fair amount of attention anyhow. Just two weeks ago I had someone pull me over to look at it. Then they wrote down the info. Along with "Excessive speed, 90 mph" and "Order to Appear", and gave me a copy.

Re: 1994 M900 (b.rock)

Hey b.rock, just busting your balls here. Before this goes too far in the wrong direction I wanted to change course a bit. Glad you have a great sense of humor and good luck selling your rat bike (just kidding).

Re: 1994 M900 (Nick D.)

Thanks.
Now if I spraypainted the entire thing, one coat, flat black, frame and all, THEN I'd say it was a rat bike. And ask a lot less. Or Custom Paint and ask more.
