    Lets bring the price war down and keep our bikes on the road and out of the collectors vacuum bag long term storage never to be seen again world of people that collect wine that is already well out of date.

    Spring is around the corner and lets go for a ride

    Guy, come on now lets be sensible, no sp4s is worth 40k, I've had mine from new, have spent almost as much on it as I paid for it in 1992, therefore it is not 100% original, however I would like to think that I could get half that for mine.

    I guess he is not looking for a buyer ... just putting it on his list like he did before on his old site. And perhaps there is someone who would pay 40k for it and than he has a good deal

    So what you're saying Nux is that the seller is one of those prima donna dealer-type tossers?

    Thumbs up Sp4s

    Yep,

    He actually sounded a little bit like a confused child in a toy store when I spoke with him on the phone.

    We down under call them a ANAL.

    I had a e-mail conversation with the seller and he said and I quote " 40 d if you want to deal you have to visit me. But don't think it's your lucky pricy day. reg marc"

    Sadly it won't be his lucky pricy day (sic) either!

    Clearly something is worth what someone will pay for it but bearing in mind they made a 100 SPS's I reckon a good one is worth 20K. An SP3S on the other hand, of which they made 16, may well be worth 35K if you could find an original one!

    Correct Jack,

    The SP3S was a cracker & as you stated only 16 examples were pushed out the door of the factory.

    Most guys are un-aware that this was the case, would like to know where they are just now, and how many have survived the race track.

    Wish my pick up was there to collect one of them at the time of production.

    Default Sp3s

    In July 07 the very knowledgeable Mr R said he had never heard of a SP3S, well neither have I, anyone got any info/pictures, I am sure there would be a lot of interest.

    Have a look at the same post, that Steve said he had never heard of the sp3s;

    http://www.ducati851and888.com/showthread.php?t=266

    There is a photo of Simon Le Bon's sp3s (looks like a sp3 with a carbon tank - it even looks like it has standard Brembo wheels - now if I had paid what ever they sold for back then I would least expect some Mag!).

    All this talk of sp3s and sp4s for 25 grand, 40 grand making me feel very poor!
