Re: Question about Ducati Motorcycles

I've seen the BST wheels before - incredibly nice Probably a bit on teh steep side though....

It looks like wheels from the 999/749 should fit, so if I find the bike I want then I'll start searching ebay.

Re: Question about Ducati Motorcycles

After rebuiding a Guzzi motor, gears only to later have the crank break and experiences with Ducati tune up prices and parts. Then having a Buell S1 which anyone can work on made since to me. I also of course had worked for a short while at a Harley dealer. Took some Harley classes and knew about the jetting, tuning and so on. Plus Harley parts are easy to find. I do not have it anymore due to finacial times but it was my favorite. Would diffenently have one over any Ducati and their prices. At idle you don't have to downshift all the torque you ever need. Of course I am not a racer or go fast boy, so depends on your riding if you really need a Ducati. But you might want to check Ricardo prices on them if your not set. A Duke has to go to the shop a Buell can go in your garage and is a do it yourself repair.

Re: Question about Ducati Motorcycles

One of my Guzzis I bought new in CT back in '85, and brought it with me when I moved here in '86, has 95k miles at the moment, the other (an '86) I bought as a wreck in '91 to put a sidecar on, that one has 115k km.

I never broke a crank, but I do have a broken crank from my friend's R90S motor sitting in my office.

Harleys are expensive here, and make Italian bikes and parts look cheap by comparison (though I do get some Guzzi and Ducati parts from the US, especially used stuff).
