Only the best rated aftermarket parts were used in her build, obtained from Motowheels who supplies only "Top Class" products and is world renown for their specialization in Ducati, specifically offering the best quality carbon fiber on the market!
In an effort to better describe her chosen paint scheme, one may see the influence of the Ducati Senna in my design, with some additional, slight variences. She is painted in a dark metallic grey, with her "number boards" formed by clear coating over the carbon fiber core. All of the non-painted carbon fiber has also been clear coated in order to obtain a uniform look and for overall protection. This work was carried out to completion by "Jason Haskins Hot Rod Shop" which specializes in award winning show car design. Additionally, the bi-posto tail displays a custom upholstered passanger seat in order to match the painted plastic.
Less then 2.5k since top end rebuild performed by Certified Ducati Dealer (including ALL NEW ROCKERS!) as well as 6000 mile service (with NEW BELTS)!!!
Less then 8k since bottom end rebuild performed by Certified Ducati Dealer.
***While the motorcycle's chassis and gauge register 26,952 miles, it is important to note that as almost the entire motorcycle has been rebuilt or parts replaced, these miles do not accurately depict the age or condition of the bike. Instead, potential buyers should compare this motorcycle to others with 8k working miles and 2.5k miles since initial service... one including both new belts and all new rockers!!!
Clear Title... No lienholders. Bike has been purchased and built with cash, not loans.
This bike was has been used for pleasure throughout ownership. It has NEVER been tracked and was ALWAYS well cared for. All services have been performed by Certified Ducati Dealers. In addition, every 3k miles I personally performed an oil change using Ducati recommended products. I am a 31 year old, adult male, with 8 years of riding experience... all on Ducati motorcycles. I am the ideal previous owner.
This bike has BOTH a Carbon Fiber Mono-tail as well as a Custom Painted and Upholstered Bi-posto Tail. Switching between the two can be accomplished in as little as 3 minutes. So you can always be prepared whether you are looking to add that lovely unexpected passanger or want to show off the carbon beauty running solo!!!!
While it has never been "DOWN", it has suffered a tip-over in storage. This has resulted in a few cracks in various places of the motorcycles farings. Firstly, in the nose fairing (located above and to the left of the most forward DZUS fastener point, where the nose fairing covers the left air runner). Secondly, at the base of the nose fairing (under the left headlight) another crack is revealed. Both of these are without a doubt repairable. Additionally, there is a crack located just above and below the left side frame slider in the left side mid fairing. It should however be noted that due to their location, these all go fairly unnoticed by anyone other than those who are inspecting the bike. Photos of these have been included in the photo album.
Separate from the fairing, I wish to also mention that there is also a crack in the left upper "nose" fairing support (arm) and a crack on one of the gauges plastic covers.
Regardless of the disclosed faults, all one needs to do is look at the abundance of modifications done to this motorcycle to understand that parting it out alone would bring the new owner a healthy return on his or her purchase. That being said, I could never bring myself to perform such an act as it was my pleasure to create her, and while it causes me great pain to let her go at this time, I do not hold any interest in dismantling her.
I am opening a new business and am in immediately need of redirecting my assets. I am therefore offering this motorcycle, along with the stated modifications, at a price below KBB for a 2001 Ducati 748 Bi-posto in “stock” condition. I do so in order to process a quick sale!
*She is presently available for viewing in Citrus Heights (suburb of Sacramento), CA. You are also welcome to email me with any questions or to request additional photos.

Due to a very serious head injury, including internal bleeding of the brain, after an attack and theft, I have been left out of the loop for sometime.
Therefore, I wish to update that Gia remains available.
