1994 Ducati 750 SS. Has been off the road since 2002 and in storage. In 2002 it had just been serviced. including new cam belts. when it crashed at very low speed on a road that had just been "resurfaced" with that shingle-like stuff poured on top of a layer of some sort of tarmac glue that the moronic council seem to love using. The front fairing nose section. mirror and RH fairing were damaged. and were subsequently removed. The bike was then used for a while longer un-faired before being laid up. It rode the same after being dropped as before. and as can be seen only has minor cosmetic damage. However. the real issue is probably that it has been unused for about 12 years. There is the obvious matter of some surface corrosion. mainly to some of the fixings that were never plated very well/at all. and the engine casings. It seems that these models suffer from this anyway so it's probably typical of the average mid '90's Ducati. The less visibly obvious issue is the engine/electrics. If I were to put it back to roadworthy condition. I think it would require a new battery. cam belts. carburettors flushing and checking. a full engine service. new tyres. brake service. and whatever else is found wrong once the systems can be made live. Of course ideally it would also have the fairings repaired and refitted. and the scruffy engine casings vapour blasted or repainted. It would then be a super example of the model. Maybe it will be fine with a levels check. some fresh fuel and a new battery. but that's up to the new owner to choose.  I've tried to show the worst case scenario and expect it'll actually be a nice simple job for the right person. Maybe an ideal winter project for a Ducati collector. certainly a great opportunity to acquire a genuine low mileage 750SS. becoming rare now and going up in value.
