quote from eBay listing:

This is a street titled 2004 RS-250. It is a converted cup bike. Everything has been upgraded to exact street standards as they sell them in Europe. Harness, bodywork, lights, et. It has a clear Michigan title. You will not find many of these here in the USA. They are super nice light bikes that handle like razors. There is a bit of rash on the right side panel, (I bought the panel that way) and a small rash on the left swingarm as you can see in the picture. This is a low mileage bike, and it runs fantastic. I listed it not long ago for eight grand. It didn’t sell, and I’ve now priced it to move. The pictures don’t look half as nice as it does in person. Woodcraft Rearsets New DID 520 X-Ring Chain

Loving that shot of the rear tire!

1997 Suzuki RGV250 For Sale with Lucky Strike Bodywork

I love this paint scheme! Here's the link to the Forum Post on usa2stroker.com and the eBay listing for this Suzuki RGV250:

1997 Suzuki RGV250 Lucky Strike For Sale1997 Suzuki RGV250 Lucky Strike Tank1997 Suzuki RGV250 For Sale

quote from eBay listing:

I bought this bike about 2 years ago and did a minor restoration. The previous owner had rebuilt the motor completely about 2500 miles before I got it. I have only put about 500 miles on the bike since I've owned it. That's part of the reason that I am selling due to little time to ride and maintain. The motor pulls very strongly and brings the front wheel off the ground in 1st and 2nd gear if you wish it to. The bike is jetted for Northern California and though I am in SoCal, I've never rejetted as I'd rather be on the safe side.

Even though this bike does have a California title, I think the lofty starting price of $10200 is a bit higher than market considering the mileage and wear. The bodywork does look really good and it has some nice upgrades. If you've been waiting for a Lucky Strike RGV, maybe your wait is over.

2000 Aprilia RS250 For Sale: Titled and Low Miles!

Arguably the sexiest 250 2 stroke of it's era, the Aprilia RS250 is at the top of my wish list at all times. This one looks like a good bet with less than 4k miles and a Washington title! Take a look at this 2000 Aprilia RS250 on Seattle Craigslist:

quote from Craigslist ad:

2000 Aprilia RS250 street plated race bike, registered through April 2009. 3k miles runs and looks great, starts on first kick, as a matter of fact it starts so easily you can kick it over with your hand! Top speed of aprox 135mph, handles better than any other sport bike out there,2 stroke street bike weighs only 280lbs! Cruises on the freeway nicely. Has after market Arrow exhausts that increase power band. Some minor scuffs from transporting but excellent condition otherwise. Never been raced.
$8500

$8500 is a bit on the high side in my opinion, but if I could almost justify it, I'm sure someone else who actually has funds ready will snatch it up.

quote from CL ad:

Pros:
Very Rare
new gold chain
new Metz 1
new tune up
new brakes pad
new cpu from UK
runs excellent

Cons:
Speedo out

$4k is pretty cheap for any decent gray market bike, let alone with a title. If mileage and history is good on this one, I wouldn't think twice.
