I was told a '74 Ducati 750SS went for $160K and a later 900SS went for $140K.

That's just stupid.

...anyone want to buy some old Ducs?

I was told a '74 Ducati 750SS went for $160K and a later 900SS went for $140K.

There were 3 750SS's. All of them were immaculate (museum quality) and went for huge money. One of them had less than 400 miles.The green frame models are very sought after. The 2 900SS's sold for around $40K not $140K

I wanted to bring this home. Only $7K

Not everything was outrageous money, there were some good deals there.

I know a guy with an 851 in pieces; can’t convince him to put it together or sell it to me!

I watched last night's TV broadcast of the Friday action and noticed that they cut the footage of the on-stage handlers dropping a vintage Harley bagger on the turntable. The crowd let out a very loud "Oooohh!" when that happened. One guy folded down the rear stand but didn't get the bike rocked back onto it completely to lock it in place and then he just walked away as the bike slowly tipped over onto its side. The auctioneer said later "It's OK, it's still a good bike".

They also didn't air my TV time when the guy right in front of me won the '65 Harley for $25K :whatever:
