Of course, just like anything else, there are other options with a competitive price and that is the beauty of capitalism. I bought my GT and Sport1000 not because it was "rare" but because Ducati nailed the bodywork, it looks great, to start with! The styling and curves are all proportional. Are there stronger and cheaper bikes on the market? Of course. Should Sport Classics be this expensive? That is up to the market to decide. I live in California and the house prices are ungodly high, but like with everything, they will eventually drop. But if yall don't think SCs shouldn't be this expensive sell them at a price you think they should cost

But with a few tasteful mods I think it has a lot of potential.

I bought my GT new because I liked it.

After I finished my mods, I like it even more. Doesn't matter to me what it's worth on the open market or even if anyone else likes it, it's mine and that's what counts.

Do I even need to post a pic?

Semantics is the difference between "knowing your shit" and "knowing you're shit."

I just told him it is still the same unpopular bike and not worth double because it was only made for a couple years. People like to throw that word rare around......

......I do not know if this can be related to SC’s.....

In 1955, Rolex launched its Reference 6234 chronograph. Neither “Cosmograph” nor “Daytona” appeared on the dial; the watch was simply labeled “Chronograph.” Rolex made about 500 of these watches each year until 1961, when the reference was discontinued. The watch sold for about $200 in the early 1960s. This model wasn’t very successful, either: it and other early Rolex chronographs often languished on dealers’ shelves because other manufacturers had long since established themselves as chronograph specialists. Nowadays these so-called “Pre-Daytonas” are rare and desirable: $20,000 is merely the entry-level price for one of these hard-to-find models with a silver or black dial and stainless-steel case.
