1999 Ducati ST2-----price---$4800
Welcome, My Ducati ST2 has 55,700 miles. WAIT!!!--Before anyone freaks out about the mileage I'd like to tell you about the bike. I bought it new in April of 99. All the miles have been highway (I have a 80 mile commute to work) and long distance touring, and if I hadn't got a new BMW I'd still be touring with it. This had been my fourth Ducati (I have a 748 now, also) and I've done all the repairs and updates myself, except for the warranty work when new. I have extensive maintance and service records with parts, accesories, labor, etc (I'm very anal in this regard). I honestly believe that it would be very difficult to find a cleaner, better running ST regardless of mileage!! Clicking on any of the pictures should enlarge them.
OK. Let's see if I can make a list of the add-ons and modifications....... From the front- back....... Michelin Pilot Road tires- fairly new--I get over 12K miles on these. Painted and clearcoated GOLD rims, full-floating superbike rotors (hardly seen on a street bike) that produce powerful stops without warped rotors! Race Tech (BCM Ducati installed) fork internals set up for 200 lb rider, that has perfect control. Tapered roller bearings in the steering head (replacing the weak ball bearings). BCM 1\2" handlebar risers. LED battery voltage gauge. Heated grips. Custom cruise control. All electrical accesories have seperate fuses and relays. Also I've installed larger battery cables to help with the starting and the headlight is run through a relay so that it shuts off during start up to save the battery, which is new.
