Question Ducati 860 900 Mille Book

I'm looking for a new or used copy of Ian Faloon's Ducati 860 900 Mille Bible. It's currently out of production from the publisher.

Any ideas regarding where I might find a copy?

Thanks.

Amazon is your friend
http://www.amazon.com/The-Ducati-Bib...rds=ducati+860

but at $6685.88 you might want to keep looking

(try contacting the seller and point out his typo)

There's another one out there that's around $13,000 USD. I don't think they're typos...

I've contacted the publisher and am hoping to get a handful of copies, sell them for silly money, and retire on the profit. Based upon the current asking prices, it oughta be a piece of cake.

Find someone that owns one and take the damn thing to Kinkos. It's out of print so I don't think the publisher would care.

Seriously, you think that the price is accurate? It's not a first edition Bible, signed by God. What could possibly make a book so valuable?

Amazon. It's part of this weird pricing algorythm deal they have. Last year iirc there was some obscure bug theis that was for sale for like half a million bucks.

But you do know that copying a book like that is in fact theft. Even if it is out of print.

For $13,000 and the level of risk involved, I think I could live with being a thief.

Im sure you're aware of it by now but I post it for completeness. "The Ducati 860, 900 and Mille Bible" is now available in ebook versions for a proper price.
