So I have the chance to go to an vehicle auction. I see that there are 2 Ducatis on the pre-sale list. One is a 2002 998 2157 miles red. The other is a 2001 Monster 750 Dark 12250 miles. The catch about this auction is that only authorized dealers are allowed in and I luckily have a friend who is a dealer. The book value of these bikes is now the "trade-in" value. Does that make sense? Dealers selling to dealers. Anyway the book value of the 998 is around $10,000 and the Monster is $3,800!!! That means I could get the bike for a little less than both of those, probably. Neither of these bikes have a salvage title. I currently own a 99 M900S with lots of CF.

My question is, how much do you think I could get for the monster? I figured something like 4,500 - 5,000. Its got a lot of miles and its 2002. That would give someone a chance to get on of our badass bikes at a low price!!! I might buy both the 998 and the monster and sell my monster and the other monster. Then "upgrade" to a 998!

My next question is, how many of you would "upgrade"? Notice "upgrade" is in quotes!

Buy both, sell the monster that you buy at the auction, keep your monster and the 998. ;D (if thats an option). If not sell both monsters, then keep the 998. Then after a while of riding the 998 you can give it to me. 8)
