1991 Bimota YB8 For Sale with only 1 Mile on the Clock!

Yep, you read right.  1 mile!  In fact, the ad goes on to say it's actually only 9/10's, but you get the idea.  Seems like a great opportunity for a collector.  Here the listing on eBaymotors for this 1991 Bimota YB8:

 quote from seller's eBay listing:

Here is a used{barely} 1991 Bimota YB8,FZR1000 EXUP Power,thats right ,9/10ths of a mile.Bike is in great shape,paint is like new,a few spots were touched up or reworked.This was found in a gentlemans garage,where it sat for 12 years, Was bought at a Bimota bankruptcy auction in 1993. Bike had some damage on one of the fairings,but was fixed to stock specs. Every thing is original except for the rear blinkers{originals had a broken lense}.and it has a gustaffson windscreen{original was broken}.Tires are original{not dry-rotted}.Bike runs excellent! 

Featuring the fantastic FZR1000 motor and Italian styling, I'll bet this bike is a blast.  No idea what it's worth, but I'll update the post after the auction ends.  Currently at about $5k reserve not met, with 6 days to go.

Suzuki GSX-R Blowout Post: 5 Classic Gixxer’s on eBay Right Now!

Apparently these aren't quite as hard to find as I thought! Here are 5 great looking classic GSX-R sportbikes for sale right now on eBay:


1986 Suzkuki GSX-R 750
- This one only has 17k miles and wears the original body work that is in shockingly good condition considering this bike is 22 years old! Has a buy-it-now for $5200.


1990 Suzuki GSXR750
- Nice upgrades on this one include: Later forks, Marchesini rims, Cosworth pistons, Yoshimira exhaust and cams, Keihin carbs, and more. This sucker is loaded and the auction is about to end at just under $3k reserve not met. What a shame, although I'd be secretly thrilled if it were my bike and it hadn't sold!!


And three more GSX-R 1100 models: an 86, 87, and 89!

Have experience with an old GSX-R like one of these? Leave a comment and tell us about it!

Sharp Looking 1989 Yamaha FZR400 For Sale

I love this color scheme! The white with red graphics are so classic looking. Check out this 1989 Yamaha FZR400 For Sale on eBay.

quote from seller's eBay listing:

This is a super clean 1989 Yamaha FZR400 up for auction. Runs as great as it looks, too! A true screamer. The only non-stock part to the bike is the Vance & Hines exhaust system. This bike has been well loved and taken care of by its owner for many years. As such, it has been ridden. The clock shows just in excess of 27,000 miles. Still, the engine’s got great compression and runs just as strong as the day it was brought home. CLEAR TITLE, of course.

Less than a day to go on this one, but it's already met reserve at just over $2300. Someone is going to score a great track bike or weekend playtoy! The owner is almost apologetic about the condition in referring to the bikes age, but the pictures sure do tell another story -- it looks great to me!

1989 Honda NSR250: Another West Coast Bike For Sale

These 2-strokes are everywhere all the sudden! Here's a 1989 Honda NSR250 For Sale in Seattle that's listed on Craigslist:

quote from seller's Craigslist ad:

I HAVE MY HONDA NSR 250 TWO STROKE FOR SALE IS GREAT ON ONE PICE A COLLECTOR DELIGHT
$6000 NO MORE NO LESS FIRM ON THE PRICE.
IF YOU CALL YOU KNOW WHAT TIPY OF BIKE THIS IS HOW RARE AND COOL IT IS NEVER SOLD IN USA SOIL JAPAN IMPORT.

I'd personally want one that was a bit newer, but if it's titled, $6k sounds like a nice way into this small niche in the sportbike market.

1988 Suzuki GSX-R 1100: Clean and Recently Rebuilt Motor

I know that by definition the GSX-R isn't rare considering how many were produced, but I would say they are close knowing how hard it would be to find a survivor like this one. Take a look at this 1988 GSX-R 1100 for sale in Chicago on Craigslist:

quote from seller's Craigslist ad:

THIS IS A 1988 GSXR 1100 IN EXCELLENT CONDITION. IT HAS AN PROFESSIONALLY 1109 BIG BORE KIT INSTALLED IT HAS 2200 MILES ON IT.THIS IS AN EXTREMELY FAST BIKE. THERE IS 38mm FLAT SLIDES ,BIG BORE KIT, FALICON RODS AND HEAD WORK IN THE MOTOR. AND THERE ARE ALOT OF GREAT FEATURES SUCH AS IT HAS 8900 MILES ON THE BODY AND THIS IS A REALLY CLEAN BIKE.

Love the colors, original plastics, dual lamps and recently built motor. But that $3500 asking absolutely rocks!

1993 Suzuki RGV250 For Sale with Title

Another great looking two stroke sportbike for sale. It seems like that time of year and all the great looking bikes are coming out for sale at the end of the season. Check out this 1993 Suzuki RGV250 For Sale on eBay:

quote from seller's eBay listing:

Up for auction is my RGV250 with a street legal Florida title in my name.This is a VJ22A model. Bike is totally stock and original and was imported from Europe a couple of years ago by myself.

It has approx. 9500 miles and everything works as it should. If you know about these bikes you now how rare they are especially with a street legal title.

Bike is in very good condition for the year. It has a few blemishes on it but would stand up against any bike of the same year.

Not as flashy as some of the 2-strokers I've posted, but it's got a big plus going for it: It's titled! So if you want a bike you can ride to the local gathering and wow everyone with something they probably haven't seen on the road before, this could be your bike.
