My 1996 Ducati M900 Monster is back

Some of you may remember my 1996 Ducati M900 Monster that I sold to gain capital for the 05 Gixxer 1000 purchase.


Old pic, new ones will be posted later.

New pics






I really didn't wont to sell it when I did and swore I would find another later. Now I don't have too.
Due to my request at time of sale. The bike was offered back to me. The past owner is getting a newer version of same bike. I gladly bought it back.
He even made some slight changes. He added a clear tail light, new bar ends, new rear tire, break pads, new fork seals and had the 30k service done. He only added another 2k miles over what was already on the clock and I got it all for just $200 more than what I sold it for.

Good thing I hadn't sold the stands that the wife bought me just for this bike.

The Monster has always been my favorite Standard/ naked bike. I don't always need the power of the Gixxer.

That's awesome jeeps! However I thought your significant other limited you to a certain number of bikes? In order for you to get a new one you had to get rid of one right? OR did she not have a policy about buying an old bike back?

Sounds like you made out on the deal tho!

I don't have to worry about that right now since I am still single. I buy what I wanna buy and don't have to ask anyone.

The only purchases I discuses (ask permission) are the ones that require financing.

Living like hermits on welfare while we paid for the house helped allot. Back in those days. I only had one old bike, old beater truck while she drove a old car given to her by her parents. We hardly ever went to the movies or out to eat. After we got the house paid off. It was time to enjoy life.
