I'm sure I'll get some flak for this statement---But there is no Ducati in the freeking world worth $160,000.00. Sorry but it's true

A couple of years ago I built a road registered 1198RS with Ti frame etc & it weighs 149 Kg with 1 Lt of fuel. I don't like to keep count on $s but it would have cost in the vicinity of A$150K so the above $160K seems reasonable

Just because someone builds a bike and spends lets say $150k. on the build does not mean that the bike is worth that much---It may be worth it to you since you spent the $$$ but everyone else may think you are completely nuts or just have more money then brains. This is not aimed at any one just a general statement. I see customers all the time that build a custom BMW motorcycle--in fact one of them was in my shop yesterday--he wants to sell a bike he built--he has spent a bit over $25k on the bike, but if he sells it the best he will be able to get is around $7500

There are a couple of "worths" in building a bike. In my case the resale value was not & still is not a consideration. It was a project that developed as we went along & it had a couple of iterations along the way,
It started off during a quiet Sunday night involving beer & Ebay where I bought an Ti NCR frame from a guy in New York & went on from there over a few years. The worth in my case was building something with some friends that is reasonably unique & getting it road registered which is a bit of an achievement here in Aus.

Justus, I haven't any photos of how she is now as I have fitted a CF subframe to her but a couple attached for you.

Well in my case since I have a shop, I have to look at everything as what is the profit margin once I'm done with a project, Now my Race bike that is an example where I'll not be able to sell it for what I have in it -but with that I also have to consider the fun factor I have when racing so that offsets the cost. But what I am saying is just because someone builds something that twist's their cork and they spend crazy money to complete their dream bike, that may be their dream and it's not to anyone else ---the amount of $$$ spent does not = worth. and like you you started a project with friends over beer and you guys had a blast building it, I understand that fun times were had by all lol but again I have too look at everything as dollars & cents

Morning Weed. Nice bike. Interesting clutch slave cylinder setup. The gear changer looks like itís going to hit the alternator cover. Why is the horn on the left? The dog doesnít seem to show much enthusiasm.
