    This is one gorgeous bike. I had a the same 92 in the cafe fairing that I regrettably sold; was one of my all time favorites. I especially like the font.

    My owned from new and still in the stable '91 900SS...

    There's something about the stylization of the lettering on the "pre-Texas Group" on Ducati's that really looks good. They should drop the ugly font style of the current lettering.

    Pre-TPG = Cagiva.

    Yeah. The Cagiva font looked pretty good on Ducatis.

    I know I saw a top case at least today. Check regularly. I bought side bags and mounts from a guy at work for $300. The left one was cracked. Found a left one on Ebay for $50. Paid $200 for the top case on Ebay. New the whole set would push right up against $2000.
    Also check the marketplace forum on Multistrada.net. There's a set of red Dp panniers on there now in SoCal.

    Here is a before shot, 1983 RGS1000. It has about 17000 km.

    This is after I cleaned it up and put it back together. It sat for about 15 years before I got it. It has its original patina.

    My 1997 916. It's near 960cc due to the 900SS crank and overbored cylinders with Carillo rods. I bought it from a co-worker who built it as a race bike.
