URGENT: 888SP4S Value verification needed

As you know I was punted off the T8SP4S last year.
I got a letter back home today from the insurance co' saying that they would like verification of the value of the bike.
They have contacted a 'local' dealer who quoted a value a lot less than the HARTEC valuation that was done independently.
HARTEC quoted 17k in good condition, and my SP4S was in excellent condition.
Letter also stated that some dealers had not even heard of the SP4S so if I have any other information could I send it to them. They want to be as fair as possible.
I've got 8 weeks to sort it. Needless to say this is going to go global and off to Duc' Bolog'.
John Hackett has got the bike and has helped fantastically, but they obviously want another 2 or 3 valuations to go on.

I know what they are worth and I am up there re these bikes, but of course my word is diddly isn't it.
So guys, contacts, known others that have been sold and how much for, any kept adverts (there was one in MCN last year 20k), anything you can help with please do.

U2U me please.
Scott, if you read this can you contact me.
Red SPS like wise.
I've U2U'd you Gary.
Thanks Guys.

Ains.

Hi Gary, yup got it and replied.
All looking good so far. Fingers crossed.
Frame will be back in the next couple of days all sorted and in top condition.

Steve, thanks for the advert, it's the one I was looking for back home. Already sent off.
Incidentally, the bike in the ad' is identical to mine even down to the foot pegs and the two decals on the lower part of the fairing.

Ains.

Ains, I just added a link to a Japanese dealer to upnorth, they've got a few nice bits of exotica but no 888SP4S at the mo, might be worth keeping an eye on i though. There's a quick digi shot of the ad from the mag i found it in which had an 851 SP2 and a few other tasty bikes but the site also lists their current stock, it is in Japanese so gimme a shout if you need a hand, I've added an image of what the word Ducati looks like in Japanese anyway and the correct drop down boxes to click

:thumbs: Cheers Gizmo, I'll check it out.

Got an email from Livio Lodi, Ducati Museum curator confirming the valuation I've got. So the evidence is building nicely.
Cheers for now,

Ains.

Why not showing these pictures/ads here?

Ains, sorry for not being helpfull, but I have never seen an ad of the SPS, never seen one in real life.
I hope you get this fixed.

NUx, hey, no worries. Add as below.
If it's fixed by Aug ( I'm sure it will be he says tapping his head and saying touch wood) it'll be at the DSC Cadwell track day.
