You'll never get me to agree it was a reasonable price Mike if they are "useable but need rechroming or powder coating". All that means is that they are in one piece, if they are bad enough to need a surface treatment to recover them, they don't warrant that sort of money imho.

I don't think Adam's price is much at all. in fact, there is a set online right now for 600 USD so Adam was asking 25% less due to the exchange

I bought and sold parts to Adam, I think he is more than reasonable for unobtainium parts

General Discussion / Where did all the enthusiasts go?
« Last post by lordmoonpie on December 13, 2017, 01:57:37 PM »
I bought the first MH900e I ever owned about 6 years ago and then the old forum was alive. Having joined, I quickly sourced the DP extra parts I wanted through helpful fellow enthusiasts either giving me links to parts for sale or selling the ones they no longer wanted and at a fair price too, being a fellow owner, forum member and MH900e enthusiast. In return I took my bike to a carbon fibre manufacture and left it there for six months on the other side of the country so they could use it to pattern and mould carbon parts from it for a group buy. I was happy to help the forum members get the parts they wanted, I got the part I wanted too and we all got a great deal so it didn't matter to me that I lost a summer's riding. I even spent months re-vamping the registry and updating owner lists across the globe for the benefit of the forum members.
Fast forward after the sale of that bike, several bikes in between and I bought a second barn find MH900e. It needed TLC and was standard so I thought I'd fire up my forum membership. In doing so I arranged, brokered and completed an X-bracket group buy for some of the guys on here. I already had one so no benefit to me other than to help the guys in the same owners group and make things better in the community I joined.
Looking for the few parts I'd like to add to my second MH900e and the parts have become very scarce. Worse, there are owners on here stockpiling parts they already own several times over, buying up all they can get their hands on and advertising the same wanted ads on Ducati forums all over the globe, grabbing as many parts as they can. You can only fit one set to your sole bike right? This isn't to help their fellow forum members and marque owners though, it's so they can empty a niche supply base and sell on at vastly inflated prices and turn a fast buck. They also seem to have very little knowledge about the bikes, the engineering or the value of the parts, they are just collecting them up and flipping them for the biggest mark up they can manage. I've seen X-brackets offered for $1000 when the better machined ne ones are $440, Termignoni systems sold for over $6000 when I bought mine 6 years ago for $1800 and you can get a bespoke identical copy made in Ti today for $2500. Refinished Carbon dream seconds kits bought unfinished and cheaply in recent years and then lacquered and sold on for $5000+ - every one of them with the flaws that led to them being marked as seconds and unfinished in the first place. Damaged mirrors selling for $650, scratched clutch covers for $350.... Whatever happened to the camaraderie of a single make and model forum like this where the people who visit, help the collective owners group instead of joining the forum and sitting like vultures ready to pounce on any relevant part purely for their own benefit. We used to help each other keep our bikes running, healthy and looking good, it was a fellowship with common goals, shared ideals and experiences and it was a great place to hang out and a great community to be involved in. It seems the world has taken a turn for the worse in many ways and the stockpiling of parts by the greedy few, denying the pleasure of the many is now the norm. I for one have the resources to make what I can no longer buy because of the hoarders sat on their rotting treasure and if I can make for other genuine enthusiasts I will, at no profit to myself and I hope that fate catches up with the hollow, shallow and greedy few leaving them with a horde of parts that people refuse to pay their exorbitant prices for. You reap what you sow in this life, karma is coming for you...

Unfortunatly I paid a lot for these items.
More then I should have but what can you do.
I cant give them away. I can take a little loss.
That's what I would like to get but open to reasonable offers..
I have sold thousands in SC parts on .ms and .org and locally on kijiji.
many happy buyers.
More so open to a trade for another DP item or part of the bike I don't have then expecting that amount. Lowered the price.

$750 CAD for mirrors that need fully refinishing? Are you having a laugh Adam? I can see why you are always touting for parts if you resell sub standard bits at prices as ridiculous as that! This is a single make forum for like minded individuals not a source of victims to profit from. Whatever happened to helping your fellow enthusiast with a good deal to further the collective longevity of the marque. Seems you sold out, they don't call it mean green for nothing... >:(

DP mirrors for the MH900e (Ducati part # 9710004H)

They are usable but not in showroom shape

Not in perfect shape but can be re chromed or powder coated or whatever.

$600 Canadian or best reasonable offer or trade for other DP parts you have.

Your OEM one Chris? No, not bothered with that, once the Ohlins went on I couldn't ever go back to the OEM one.  ;)
