This 1980 Ducati 900 SuperSport is a Canadian-specification bevel-drive model which was refurbished approximately five years ago with a black and gold paint scheme as well as period racing-style parts. Power comes from an 864cc V-twin paired with a five-speed transmission. Modifications include a chrome single-piece two-into-one exhaust system, a polished engine case and fork, Brembo brakes, Works Performance springs, a gold O-ring chain, powder-coated Marchesini wheels, and more. This 900 SuperSport is offered in Canada with Ontario registration in the seller’s name.

The frame, fairings, and handmade aluminum Imola fuel tank were refinished in black and gold with new decals, clear coat, and a vertical strip in the style of a fuel level window. A polished front fork, Monza fuel filler cap, and petcocks were fitted along with a chrome chain guard. Stainless steel hardware replaces stock cadmium-plated pieces throughout.

The fork was refurbished with Works Performance springs and adjustable preload caps, while adjustable steel dampers were fitted at the rear. The stock aluminum rear axle plates were replaced with billet single-piece slip-on adjuster sleeves. Marchesini wheels are powder-coated in gold and shod with Metzeler Lasertec tires. Braking is provided by dual front and single rear Brembo drilled discs, a Brembo master cylinder, and braided lines.

The instruments have been refurbished and calibrated, and the five-digit odometer reads approximately 38k kilometers (~24k miles). Black Brembo brake levers and Ducati grips are fitted to the handlebars. A new seat imported from Australia was installed along with a replacement windshield.

A five-speed gearbox routes power to the rear wheel via a gold O-ring chain on a custom drilled and polished sprocket. A custom “gear-gazer” with an oversized window allows the bevel drive to be seen in action. A 50-weight oil change was performed in February 2019.
