I only have four bikes to deal with and two don't need anything, unlike you.

Thanks, 2 spot. The bike is really nice. A work in progress.

Jim.

By the way I have trashed the UGLY stickers. Now is white like a pearl!!! with the Luck explorer stickers...
I rode one that I retrieved from theives in 1994 (Jean-Christophe Wagner's machine)
That one was a Marathon and had 6 speed .
Are you sure this one has 5 speed?

How to get a Cagiva 900 Marathon

Where did you buy it, how much, when?

Is it possible to get a Cagiva 900 Marathon right now?

(I right now own a KTM 950 Go!!! , but this machine could get me to reconsider, I think

Wink Marathon

Ch racing doesn't sell Marathons anymore. Actually back in the 90s, they were sold mostly to European privateers that wanted to race the African competitions.

You can still find some in Europe. They are rare. The problem is the fact that most of them raced in several competitions so that they are beaten up pretty bad. It is very hard to find one that was never utilzed in such competitions. When it came out it costed almost 40 millions liras, which translated at that time in 22-25K dollars.

I agree with the fact that the bike is mostly a collectible therefore how worth is it, it all depends on what you want to do with it. I had the opportunity to buy it and I went for it.

I bought the Marathon in France (Alsace) more than a 16 months ago. The bike has only 3K miles, all done on pavement.

How much I spent? 7k euro but I was extremely lucky to get it at that price. I drove there, pick it up and brought it back.
