Ducati 851 SP 3

registered /25/02/1991

Please see for sale my Ducati 851 sp3, the bike is in very good original condition, the only exception to non original sp3 specification is the sp4 carbon silencers.

This is a very regrettable sale. For me an Iconic bike, a dream bike…. but the time has come for me to let it go.

Ran it up on Friday and its very sweet and ready to go!

Please see the following breakdown of very recent work.

The bike has not seen regular use for the last five years and has been stored inside my house for all of that period with regular attention.

When I was using the bike I always changed the oil at 2k intervals

And the coolant has been changed 3 times in ten years, each time using

Silkolene blue summer coolant.

The top end was refreshed New gaskets and ‘0’ rings and valves shimmed with new guide seals, by JHP in 2002.

The bike has only done about 750 miles since all of this work was completed .

The bike starts first time with a little throttle, does not smoke at all

anywhere through the rev band, clean as a whistle.

No over heating issues the system has been comprehensively bled .

Points of note

The overall condition is very good to excellent, with no corrosion or flaking paint to the engine cases or frame.
