Cagiva Mito Evo 1

Located in Oakland, California is a Cagiva Mito.  This bike isn't registered nor titled but has been available for quite some time--hence why I decided to post it.  The seller doesn't state much about the specific bike for sale but from the photos it looks to have some cosmetic damage while looking to be overall very original and in okay condition.  The asking price of $4,200 seems to be high especially compared to the California Titled 2000 Evo II I posted previously.  If you'd like to make an offer, see the Craigslist ad here.

Private Collection in New Jersey

I haven't see this website before but, Motorcycles For Sale Classic, is apparently a broker for a collection of motorcycles out of New Jersey.  It looks to have been recently updated but has some obvious errors--make sure to contact the seller by phone to confirm anything on their site.  Anyhow, these are some of the bikes that are still available that I found interesting:

  • 1977 MV Agusta 850SS with 1,791 original miles.
  • 1977 Ducati 900SS with 2,500 original miles.
  • 1986 Suzuki GSX-R750 Limited Edition with 2,358 original miles (Vance & Hines exhaust fitted).
  • 1985 Suzuki RG500 with 385 original miles.
  • Yamaha TZR250 with 22,245 miles.
  • 1984 Yamaha RD500 with 31,600 miles.
  • A second Yamaha RD500 with less miles.
  • Aprilia RS250 with 610 original miles.
  • 1995 Cagiva Mito.

These aren't all the bikes listed on the site--and more appear in the background of photos--but again, I would caution anyone against acting too quickly.  The website listed features errors and older dates but, I haven't seen these photos featured anywhere else and they all look to be correct and from the same location.  Titles and registration isn't mentioned and only a few bikes have asking prices.  Regardless, take a look at the site as it may be an undiscovered mine!

Top 5 Most Popular Bikes on RSBFS for 2009

As 2009 comes to a close, it's a time that we give thanks and reflect on the year that was. In keeping with that theme, here are the most viewed bikes on the site this past year:

#5 - 1998 Suzuki RGV 250 SP Lucky Strike Replica in Washington

#4 - 1988 Suzuki GSXR 750 Slingshot: Beautiful Survivor For Sale with Upgrades

#3 - 1994 Honda NSR 250 Rothmans For Sale in Reno

#2 - 1988 Suzuki GSX-R 1100: Clean and Recently Rebuilt Motor


#1 - 1996 Honda Repsol NSR 250 SP MC28 #143 For Sale

Of course #1 had a sort of unfair advantage as it was part of a new addition we're working on for feature listings and it had a prime spot in the sidebar on all pages for several months. But that doesn't take away from the fact that it was an awesome listing!

Leave a comment and tell us what your favorite was this year or what we can keep an eye out for next year!

1986 & 1989 Suzuki GSXR’s with 15 miles total!

This is one of those moments in your life that you may never experience again. For me it is one of those things that you think may be out there somewhere, but are just unsure until you see it. All I can say is "WOW, Absolutely Amazing!" Can you believe these are being offered for sale? Can you believe they even exist in this condition? I think it is awesome that they are being offered to the public and not to Barber or kept closed in private circles. Anyone care to guess what the reserve is?

From the seller:

YOU KNOW WHAT THESE ARE, SO I WON'T GET TOO MUCH INTO DETAILS.

THE 1986 LIMITED HAS 10.5 MILES AND IS IN "AS NEW" CONDITION, ORIGINAL OWNER RODE IT 10.5 MILES AND PARKED IT. IT IS 99% PERFECT, MINUS 1% FOR SOME TARNISH ON SOME OF THE HARDWARE. THE BIKE HAS A CLEAR US TITLE.

THE 1989 HAS 5.2 MILES AND IS IN "AS NEW" CONDITION, BIKE IS 100% PERFECT, HAVING ALWAYS BEEN STORED INSIDE & HEATED. THE BIKE HAS A BILL OF SALE ONLY AS IT WAS A JAPAN ONLY MODEL

These are already rare bikes, but to throw the "as new, 15 miles total" into the mix puts them in a whole new level of collectible RSBFS.

We've posted a couple of 86' GSX-R LE's recently, but the only differences between regular and LE GSX-R's were a dry clutch and solo seat tail section. However, the RR version had numerous differences, but they were never brought to the US. Some of the differences included, but aren't limited to, 40mm Slingshot Carbs, close ratio gear box, single seat and an aluminum gas tank. Personally, I'm digging the red number plate on the tail section. I'm going to keep an close eye on the auction and I'll let everyone know how it ends.

Cheers!

1989 Kawasaki ZX-7 —— Rare Survivor

Our RSBFS Scout Jim is at it again and once again he has sent us a beauty.

A 1989 ZX-7 survivor with only 5821 miles and it looks fantastic! Located in Greensboro, NC this 20 year old gem looks to be all stock down to the rear mud flap that is still in tact.

Most of these were either trashed, bashed or crashed on the track, but this one somehow escaped the torture.

The 89'/90' (H1/H2) ZX-7's weren't produced in the 7R Homologation versions like the 91'/92' (K1/K2), but the H1/H2 represent Kawasaki's first steps into the modern Replica Racer era. Kawasaki built a winner out of the box with the ZX-7 and in 1990 Doug Chandler won the AMA Super Bike Championship in only it's second year of production.

Just in case anyone wants to know... These babies produced a whopping 84hp at the rear wheel and weighed in at over 500lb wet. Now, that is not so good by today's standards, but wasn't too shabby back in the day.

Seller says:

This bike is a true collector's item. Completely factory and in pristine condition. Must see to believe!

The owner has a lofty price of $8,999.00 on Kawasaki's first year Super Bike. That is pretty steep considering the 7R I posted, that had everything going for it, only sold for $9,855.00. Now, I know there are some die hard ZX fans that follow our site so if your collection is missing the 89' give these guys a ring see what can be worked out.

Cheers!
