Intersting

Its a bit steep isnt it?
I suppose it a metter of what some nutter is willing to pay for it.
If it was 50K id be tempted.

Yeah but.....

1. If Foggy retired on it, it's also been into the fence at P.I at around 130mph :p

2. Bikes have come a long way in those six years, would be a tad embarrassing watching a current roadie go past at your first track day :crying: :crying:

3. Does it come with a team of sleezy italian engineers to help make the farking thing run??? We all know that regular dukes are tempermental, I can just imagine a tuned one :2cents:

you're kiddin

I remember chatting to a Duc spanner man at 97 SBK at Sentul.
The longest they;d ever got 1 to run was 50 minutes.
Foggy basically had a new engine for every leg of each event.
Even some of the factory stuff ( Corsa) came with a recommended rebuild of 500 km tops. And thats a complete crank balance/re shim ...the whole 9 yards.

Still be a nice bike to have in the living room. but thats about it:D

It would be nicer to have that much money in a box in the living room:squid:
