    Great bike,is it an SP or has it just the sp seat on it?

    Oops, poor word choice. Wasn't disparaging bevels, I meant dripping wet from riding in the rain.

    Not an SP, just a regular one. Had the tail section painted after some moron bicyclist ran into it when it was parked on the side of the road. Still has some minor scratches on the lower I never bothered to fix. Only time it ever went down. It has a few upgrades I did way back, Ohlins fork & shock, Termi exhaust & custom chip, cast iron Brembos rotors, Marchesini 5-spoke mags. I club raced it too for about a year or two. Never given me any problems other than the 2 phase regulator early on.

    I love this bike and I don't think there is enough money to buy it off me. This Ducati very much changed and defined my life over the last 22 years.

    I think those early 916's and 748's were the most beautiful motorcycles ever made since the Norton Commando. Magic to ride too. Too bad they changed from that classic style script for the graphics in 1998.
