The last two bikes I have owned I have bought salvaged, then put new parts on and sold them for a higher price, making a profit on the bikes. Parts for the japanese bikes are easy to find and are not overly expensive.

What about Italian bikes? Can anyone shed a little light on the subject of how difficult if would be to buy a salvaged ducati 749D and replace parts enough to put it back into good condition? Is it even worth it to try and replace the parts?

Has anyone done this that could offer advice?

I am not talking about serious repairs, just a salvaged motorcycle that needs things such as new fairings and perhaps mirrors and such.

Thanks for any help.

New Ducati parts are very expensive. I don't think we could answer your question without seeing the bike and knowing piece for piece what it needs.


I'd guess if you don't know Ducs intimately you probably shouldn't get involved with it if your looking to turn a profit. The bikes - and the buyers - are a very different market that your typical Japanese sportbike customer.
