Should I buy a Paso

I have always been intrigued with the body style of the Paso and have found one that peaks my interest. It is a 92 907IE with only 3300 miles on it, has some goodies like Feracci exhaust, speed chip, Corbin seat, luggage set, tank bag, original exhaust, and seat. Looks to be in pristine condition.

Asking price is $3K and it is a thousand miles away and would cost about $700 to get it shipped here.

I fully understand that with this mileage it will probably need a FULL service even though the owner says it is in pristine condition so toss in another grand for that, or two with tires etc.

So adding it all up and assuming the worst, is a like new 92 Paso worth $5700 ? They are super neato bikes but have not seemed to hold their value well.

OK there we go using that worth statement again, hmm I kind of want it.



So talk me out of it or talk me into it.

That's sounds like a lot of coin for a Paso. On the other hand, if you love it then get it.

One 1990's Ducati SBK and one early 2000's Ducati SBK. The big ones.

Always thought that was the best looking year and color scheme. And at 3k miles, it is really a new bike,... Wonder if it is in Phoenix,AZ ? That bike looks like it has had a very pampered life away from snow and ice.

It is back east but appears and talking with the owner seems to be in very good condition. It is a lot for a Paso but I think it would keep my pristine and cherished 94 900SS/CR good company.

I have a thing for original condition that is still in good kit.

It would have to live along side of this. I think they could get along just fine.

Could get a lot more expensive that that if it needs tweaking and you're paying somebody to do the work. Or upon examination you begin to discover repaired damage.
Would a dealer work on this?
Agreed, if you want it, go for it but I sure wouldn't buy one of these sight unseen.

Well, I have a 1993 907IE and it is one of my favorite bikes. Soooo Comfortable, and enough power to still have fun. And if you think it won't perform for you...there is a guy in the new Mclemore (sp) video doing a full stand up wheelie for a couple of blocks on a 907IE! That is something I would never try. If you do buy it (I paid more for mine BTW), I would buy your the Ferracci pipes from you in a second to help reduce the cost of the overall transaction. I would love to have a set of those on mine. Good luck, but if it were near me, I would have bought it already. I actaully spoke to the seller when he had it on CL last year. He was asking $4500 then.... GO FOR IT!

Thanks for all the advice all. After trying to reach the seller for weeks he finally emailed me back and said he sold it. I think he just got sellers remorse or thinks he can get more out of it. Not from me he wouldn't.

So I went out and got a Hyperstrada instead.

Tonered and I were in your neighborhood yesterday and I assume it must have been you we passed going the opposite direction. If, indeed, it was you, yours is the first Paso I've seen. We were the two guys on STs.

I did not have the Paso out, but you found a good place to ride....HWY203 and the Snoqualmie Valley Highway is a great ride this time of year....all the color in the trees and none of the crud on the road!
