We've seen this bike before, in January in fact when we first spotted it. What's new is that the blacked out frame treatment has been reversed and underneath is what appears to be the factory satin finish with minor imperfections. While I speculated the previously noted black frame was likely covering up an unsightly blemish, the pictures show a very good condition frame and swing arm. The other major notable is the revised buy-it-now of $8500.
from the seller:
For Sale: A CA street titled Aprilia RS250 Chesterfield Edition 2 Stroke (1996). The bike is in EXCELLENT condition mechanically and cosmetically. The top end was just rebuilt and has under 150 miles on the road; new pistons and new rings- runs beautiful!
This RS250 is not a converted cup bike. It is imported from Italy with 17 digit VIN number. It has never been raced or tracked - a true collector's dream! The bike has the original street fairing with Jolly Moto pipes. All original parts are available including rear passenger seat and foot-pegs. My asking price is $8500.00 firm. The reason for selling the bike is that I no longer ride the bike so I want someone to enjoy it! Currently covered and garaged.
