Hi there from Texas
New here, going to look at a 88' Paso later this morning.
Dellorto setup, 31k miles, dusty from sitting, all bodywork appears original and in good shape, I'm told everything works including the clock , extra new seat and timing belts, clean title, been sitting for some time. If it starts and runs well is $2k in the ballpark? Ive had several ducatis and have always liked the Paso design.
Hopefully some of you will respond in the next couple hours, lol.
Thank you,
Dean

Nice bike. Hopefully! Don't run it long or rev it on the old belts and don't trust the "new" belts unless you can prove the Year of manufacturer. They last for maybe four years on the shelf in unbroken packaging at correct temperature. Once fitted, they can be OK for three or four years on a bike that is ridden regularly all year round. If the bike is stood for any more than a year or two, then the belts are knackered.

Good luck

Sounds good to me, price wise to.
If it looks good, it most likely is (engine is almost bullit proof, just change frequently the oil, every 2.000 miles).
Love the aircooled Paso 750 engine.

Buy yourself a set of new tyres: Shinko SR880/881 (only tyre in the correct sizes available) and have fun!

Good luck and show us some pics if (sorry, when) you buy it! :thumbup:

prices in the US range from 750 to 2500. 1200 would be a typical average price for a bike that runs but has been sitting. 2500 would be a pristine low mileage( under 10,000 miles) price

I picked up my 88 750 for 750.00 Had been sitting for years needed the typical laundry list of repairs. battery, belts, oil, fork seals and front rotors. Some rust on the exhaust but no where else.
