From the seller:
For sale is my RC30, Please look at the pictures and you will see this bike is in extremely Good condition, the tank, rear seat cowling, upper fairing and front fender have not one Ding or dent, the bottom fairing has a couple blister bubbles from the heat of the engine, those Of you that know RC30’s know this is an issue with every RC ever made, other than that it runs Perfect, I recently had Jim Grainger clean and tune my carbs in Los Angeles. About 3 months ago. Oil was changed with Mobil 1 synthetic, new tires with maybe 100 miles on them, this bike was stored with the fairing off and stored indoors, the bike wrapped indoors in warm southern California climate.
No paint fading or wear anywhere. I have the tool kit, manual, 2 sets of fork seals (jic) 2 extra fairing screws, original bike brochure, braided front brake lines (never installed) 3 Rc pictures, clock, rc30 collectors pin, magazine, 2 keys, Rothmans racing decals, (never applied) 1 rear new wheel washer . 1 new oil filter and 1 set of agv leather gloves barely used.
If you buy the bike with the buy it now you will get the arai rx7 Freddie Spencer helmet and agv riding jacket size 42, the helmet is $700 alone and has removable interior cushions for washing, and the helmet is close to perfect as the Bike is also. All with only 1025 miles. P.s I have the original rear tire also.
Nice to know that RC30s tend to fall into the hands of fanatical collectors. I'm not sure how much value the original rear tire adds to the package, but I'm sure there is someone out there that wouldn't consider this a complete deal until all the original parts were together. At least somebody enjoyed 1,025 miles on this homologation special before the collector vibe kicked in. Still, there is no doubt that this is a presentable machine.
Presented in Riverside, California (doesn't Malcolm Smith have a dealership down in that area?), this RC30 is being offered with an opening bid of $23,000. That will just get the party started. The real noise doesn't start to happen until you reach the $33k BIN number. Asking prices for these gorgeous machines has gone as stratospheric as their tachometer numbers!
