To make a long story short.... I've got to sell my 998s/FE.

You all know the bike. I paid $21,000.00 out the door last September and I’ve put another 6 or 7 grand into it. I need $19,500.00 to get out from under it. I have lots of extra stuff to go with it. If you'd like to see a list of the mods and some pics, I can e-mail them to you.

It's a lot of money, so it probably won't sell anyway.

Life goes on.

Mental - so sorry to hear that the bike may have to go. I know it's your passion. Wish I had the cash to buy it, but good luck.

I wish I had the scratch to buy her (the FE that is)! I'm sorry to hear you have to part ways. Hopefully someone will give her a nice home. I always looked forward to reading/seeing the mods you did her.... I will miss that the most.
(I'm sure others will too.)

I have noticed less posts from you than usual. If you really are going to sell it, you probably should part out the aftermarket pieces. If they are on the bike, people expect them for nothing, but sold alone they will pay lots.....like those ten spokes for example.

How soon do you need to part ways with it?

I don't need the money, so I don't have to sell it.

I'm selling it for other reasons.

It is cheaper than losing a passion !

Re: F/S Mental's 998s/FE (throttlehead)

Always figured no reason was good enough to give up my bike....
the only one I could ever think of is "its dangerous" and thats why
God invented life insurance to insure lovedones are paid for
should I get hurt.

Bum deal - love the FE.

Sucks you have to sell the bike man. I may be in a similar situation soon. Do you have any extra body work you would sell? Buddy just lowsided his Bayliss.

Thanks

Re: F/S Mental's 998s/FE (Mental998)

that is a bummer to hear. it obvious you are a serious ducati junkie
! If you are committed to selling it i agree that you should put it back to stock and sell off all your bling
parts sperately. I am sure there are plenty of folks on here who are eager to score more ducati
upgrades, and selling a stock FE should be super easy! Let us know what you end up doing. I do hope you keep it though!

Layne sold off quite a few parts during the construction phase of his bike.

Sorry to hear about this Layne, but I can understand. If you don't tell your wife I'll let you take mine out for a spin.

Well technically, there are alot more women out there than there are 998FE's ................


Im sorry to hear you have to part with your bike Layne , working on it got you through some very tough times but I guess you have to do what you have to do.
Hope it all works out for you in the end.
