Flogged it Friday! Cagiva Elefant Brake Discs New.

‘What even is a Cagiva Elefant?’Cagiva Elefant Brake Discs

It is one of those bikes that upon reflection was actually ahead of the time. A Cagiva and Ducati parts bin mash up that resulted in a 900cc V twin off road style bike. Nowadays you can’t move for bikes that occupy this sector of the market but back in the late 80s and early 90s, the ‘Adventure Bike’ market was still a way off down the tracks.

Cagiva Elefant Brake Discs‘How did you even identify these discs?’

This pair of front brake rotors were in a mountain of Ducati parts recently purchased from a Ducati dealer that was shutting up shop.

The more I’ve processed for sale, the more odd bits of Cagiva parts keep cropping up. At first I wasn’t drawn to these discs, instead I feasted on sorting the Ducati bling bits. Having handled and moved them a few times I noticed a hand written part number on a grubby sticker. I tapped it into Google and hey presto, I had all the info I needed to take them to market.

‘Narrow market that, surely!?’Cagiva Elefant Brake Discs

Yes, that was my gut instinct. I haven’t seen an Elefant for decades! But somewhere out there, there’s got to be a buyer for them.

Thankfully there was! A £100 plus postage appears the going rate for new old stock discs!
