'01 750SS questions

ok guys, I have a chance at getting a 01 750 SuperSport for a real good deal. I have a few questions first..

1. what should I be looking for (read: common problems)?

2. any suspension swaps I can do to make it 2disc front brakes?

and..


3. is the Ducati world something I want to get myself into?






1997 Chevy S10ss (sold)
1995 Eclipse GS-T (sold)
1998 Yamaha Zuma(retired)
1978 Honda CB750four (project cafe-racer)
1990 Silverado Z71 White Lightnin!

"young kids... old school." a mans outlook on Chris (Xx954HxCafexX) and I pulling up on the old (yet still very badass) Hondas.

1. Has the 6000, 12,000, 18,000 or what ever mile serv. been done?

2. One front brake on that bike is OK. one more would just be extra waite.

3. Only you can make this call. If you have to have it.
Good luck.

cool mang. thanks for the help.


a couple more questions though...

The bike is straight from italy, shipped by a guy in the military. A friend of mine bought it from him and never got a title? Does anyone know how I would go about titling this bike in Florida?

Also needs a new tank and seat. Will the Monster seat/tank work? Any other parts (fairings ect.) that are interchangable?
