Post My new (to me) '95 900SP
My first Ducati. I wanted a 748 or 749 but budget only allowed an older 900SP. I'm the second owner, first owner spent over $7K in upgrades and mods.....lucky me! Major mods are; rebuilt motor (less than 1,200 miles - 30k on chassis) w/ high compression pistons, ported and polished intake, custom exhaust, mods to rear suspension to fit 180 section tire, Full spec Race Tech suspension, racing airbox w/ K&N filter, 5 coats of Glasirut w/ clear over all decals/panels. I have added tons of carbon bling, custom seat w/ red leather panel (foam modified for more comfortable feel) & carbon "look" vinyl on the rest of the seat, Motorax fender elim kit & turn signals. HID lighting system and rebuilt the OEM Mikuni carbs. I think I'm ready for a track day!

Thanks for the props guys. I know I went a little overboard with the red carbon yoke, got flamed on the Ducati MS board :cry: Don't worry, I'm done with the ornamentation projects......for now. Looking forward to showing the bike and meeting some of you on Thurs. bike nights.

Hey, don't apologize for something you think is cool! It's YOUR bike do whatever you want to it, if you like it that's all that matters. Bike looks sick by the way, congratulations, now go out and RIDE!!!

Thanks! Unfortunately I'm still influenced by peer pressure in my old age. I like to think I always make "tasteful" mods to my machines with a touch of my own personal "likes" but there are always some who don't agree huh? :grin:

I would have to agree 100%. The bike looks awesome and not pimped out.

Thanks! I just racked up 3K miles on her this weekend! Why I didn't buy a Ducati earlier is beyond me! :grin:

I deliberately read the text before scrolling down and checking the pics and damn two nice rides!

The SS is well done!

Thanks! I'm falling deeper in love everyday. I think a newer 848 or 1098 mistress is going to be waiting a few more years :egrin:

How the hell did you put 3K miles on something in one weekend?

LOL, I guess I didn't clarify that statement....I meant to say I have racked up 3K miles since owning it. Riding it everyday for work and pleasure will rack up the miles quickly on any vehicle.
