2000 Italjet Dragster 180cc, heavily modified

Hi all.

Ever wanted a pit bike or 'around town' scooter that can keep up with your MV? Well, they don't exist. But this one comes close.

2000 Italjet Dragster 180 Ďsuperleggeraí

This build started out as a stock 2000 Dragster 180. I purchased it from the original owner in Washington, who had been using it as a pit bike. Iíve always loved the Dragster, and wanted to make it into something even more unique. If you arenít familiar with the Dragster, it was designed by Miguel Galluzzi (of Ducati Monster fame) with hub-center steering designed by Elf. It is a liquid cooled 180cc 2-stroke. Only a handful made it to the states through the grey market.

The following is a list of modifications, but as itís been 3 years in the making Iím sure I am forgetting something (or a lot of things). It is the fastest, lightest, most fun to ride scooter Iíve ever had the pleasure of owning. Clear Texas title and Texas inspection good through 2015.

BODY:

Full Carbon Fiber bodywork
-Front fairing
-Rear fairings
-Front Fender
-Transmission cooling scoop
-Flywheel Cover
-Pillion seat cover
-Radiator Grill
-Expansion tank cover
-Legshield Panel
-Front Brake Scoop (currently not installed)
-Nut Cover
Frame modified to remove floorboard brackets
All plastic fairings removed
Battery relocated to under seat
Smoke indicator lenses
Custom made aluminum belly pan
Custom made bars and steering assembly
Custom Tail Tidy
Custom front headlight bracket
PM Tuning Footpegs
Oury grips
Electronic speedo
Custom seat (Alcantara)
Powdercoated:
-Swingarm
-Steering assembly
-Gas cap
-Wheels

BRAKING AND SUSPENSION:

Paioli Corsa adjustable shocks (front and rear)
Brembo Radial Master Cylinders and levers (from a Ducati 900/SS)
Heidenau K61 tires with 500 miles on them

ENGINE AND PERFORMANCE:

PM Tuning 172cc Stage 2 kit (not pictured, just installed 100 miles ago)
PM Tuning X-Tech full exhaust ceramic coated (Carbon can) with PM59 TSAB
Boost Bottle Chamber
Dellorto 30mm Carb
Carbon Fiber Reed Valves
Malossi Clutch springs
PM Tuning pro-street clutch bell
PM Tuning pro-street variators
Transmission case polished
All seals and bearings replaced
Electronics re-wired and re-routed, all connections cleaned
Oil injection disconnected (changed to pre-mix) but can be re-connected easily
Silicone Hoses


Between the stock bike and modifications, I have about $15k into this bike (and all receipts). Finding a stock 180cc in the states is hard enough, you wonít find one like this.

As I said, Iím sure Iím forgetting something. With all of the modifications, itís pushing 36hp at the rear wheel. Iíve had it up to about 120mph (indicated), and it had a bit of room left. Iíve also taken it on 400+ mile trips, and itís been super reliable. Reason for selling? Frankly, this bike is scary. Stupid scary. So Iím looking to go back to something a little more tame (like a Brutale, heh.)

Feel free to ask any questions you may have. Bike is currently located in Philadelphia. Additional photos can be found here: http://s117.photobucket.com/user/Gle...ljet%205-10-14 . I can also take additional photos upon request.

Asking $6k or best offer. Would also consider trades for a Brutale 910/1078, or another interesting bike.

It looks fricken awesome! I'll be jealous of whoever picks this up.

Any idea what the weight of it is?

Not sure, I've been meaning to weigh it and haven't gotten around to it. Stock weight (dry) was claimed at 239lbs, and I've probably dropped 60+ off of that with the modifications.

So it has more power than my 250 race bike and weighs 100 lbs less... It's so beautiful.

Just went for a ride with the 172 kit installed, it's even more a beast than before.

Price reduced to $6K. That's a ton of bike for the money.

Still for sale. Now located in Denver. Just installed a new Lithium Ion Battery ($400) with power management system, which makes a huge difference (and also saves some more weight).
