My brother in law is in South Africa, and was gifted a near showroom condition 1996 750SS. No mods, 4000km. He's curious how much it is worth here in the USA. Apparently it sat there for 20 years, garaged, and with just a new battery it cranked right up and runs fine. He's lucky like that.

Anyway, anyone mind saying what they think it would go for?

Thanks.

less than a like-vintage 900SS and probably less than the cost to ship it here. do a search of the bike classifieds here, on ebay, and elsewhere for mid-90's 900SS.

If you're looking for one for yourself, drop the approximately 5K+/- on a stateside unit. Shipping will negate any savings you think you'll see. That is unless your bro-in-law gives you the bike, then there's always the customs our poor Uncle will nail you.

Not as much as he would get almost anywhere else (SA, Europe, Australia), especially since it's the 750SS. I'd say $4500 if it's gone through and running right.

That was going OUT of the United States. Do that shipping something INTO the United States and get caught. The C&BP folks don't like that, you'll never get your stuff, or if you do you will pay a very hefty fine.

Agree with 944SS, if he is not in a hurry to sell he can probably get as much as R40k ($5k) in SA, there are not many of those around here.

Got a mint 99 with 5500 km's for R40k from DucSA recently.

If it sat there for 20 years, that would make it 2016??
Oops. Not sure what happened there. :)

I'm not actually buying it, but this is all good info, thank you. By the way, a friend of his down there gave him a new BMW 1200 S to ride for a month. He says its a great bike, but mostly he just whines about how it is just not ALIVE like his 750, and other ducatista nonsense. :)

Yeah coming in would be diff, cancel that last order. The Tax would be high coming in? Its worth what a person would pay, hard to find in S.A. maybe would go at a higher price?
