Featured Listing: 1994 Honda CBR900RR from Gary in Utah

As our regular readers have likely figured out by now, Gary in Utah has an incredible collection of rare and fast Japanese iron, and it's all in perfect or close-to-perfect shape.

1994 Honda CBR900RR for sale on eBay

The 1994 Honda CBR900RR you see here is no exception. The first year of the more modern-looking "foxeye" headlight design, this bike wears its years very well. It did not escape a garish only-from-the-90s magenta, purple and white paint scheme, but I have always been a sucker for the needlessly and unapologetically loud schemes that decade wrought. Bikes like this have lights and license plates, but they're not practical, and they needn't look too classy and buttoned down.

The bike has done 13,000 kilometers, or about 8,000 miles, and was not originally a U.S. market machine, as all the gauges are metric. The machine is largely stock, but does have a period Yoshimura carbon can and a matching header-back exhaust system.

As with all Gary's bikes, it has good tires, fresh fluids and is clean enough to eat off. There are a few blemishes and scratches, but no cracked fairings or dents.

From the eBay listing:

Up for auction to the highest bidder with NO RESERVE is a 1994 Honda CBR900RR Fireblade with only 13,087 kilometers (8,131 miles). This bike is one of my favorites. It is in premium condition with only a few scratches, chips and handling marks throughout. The left middle cowling has a piece of fairing that has broken off the tip. No cracks in the fairings or dents in the tank. Fairings are 100% genuine Honda. Motor is stock. Bike has been tastefully upgraded with a Yoshimura carbon fiber muffler and full system header, steel braided brake lines and aftermarket windscreen. Factory original muffler and header included in sale (buyer to pay for shipping). New tires have less than 300 miles on them. Bike runs like the day it was new. Just serviced with new fluids and new battery. This bike rips! No disappointments with this one. Selling cheap! Everything must go! Not sure what its worth or where the market is on this one so I'm going to sell with NO RESERVE on this Honda Fireblade.

Bike comes with Utah State title and is titled as a motorcycle for road use. $500 deposit due immediately after auctions end thru PayPal. Balance due in 5 business days via Check, bank wire or cash in person. Please text 801-358-6537 for more photos or any questions.

Happy bidding!

The auction is no-reserve with a few days left. With this bike's condition and provenance, it's a sure-fire classic and definitely one to watch.

Green Flame: 1996 ZX7RR (N1) in Calgary CAN

A poet once wrote that in the spring a man's fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love.  Fortunately for us here at RSBFS, spring is also the time when some nice bits of unobtainium start to appear for sale and here is one such example; a 1996 Kawasaki ZX7RR N1.

1996 Kawasaki ZX7RR (N1) in Calgary CAN

The ZX7RR was built to meet homologation requirements and was quite a different beast from the standard Kawasaki ZX7 machine.  Also known as the N1, the 750cc Kawasaki came with lots of track-oriented pieces such as an adjustable steering head, upgraded front forks, larger flatside carburetors, an upgraded rear shock, a close-ratio gearbox, 6 piston Nissin brakes instead of the standard Tokico, lots of carbon fiber bits (including an airbox) and no passenger pegs or seat.

Its not really surprising Kawasaki only built about 1000 units of their street legal racer (this low production number was the minimum required to meet requirements for use in Superbike racing).  500 were designated for the USA with another 20 going to Canada.

NOTE:  Interested buyers in the US may want to check whether this is a US or Canada designated bike and if there are any import restrictions/requirements.

This particular ZX7RR looks to be in truly excellent shape, especially given that it is a 20 year old bike this year.  There do seem to be a few bits of non-OEM/aftermarket, including the exhaust, chain and a few mudguard stickers.  Also the reflectors seem to be missing off the lower fairing join screws but other than these items, the bike looks to be complete.

Here is what the seller has to say:

  • in great overall condition.
  • has just over 16,300kms/10,150 miles on it
  • has been regularly maintained
  • recent new spark plugs and air filter. I
  • close to all original condition aside from a chain/sprockets, stainless steel braided brake lines and a titanium Akrapovic full exhaust system

Its nice to see that the seller avoided some of the late 1990's trends such as chopping the rear mudguard, aftermarket mirrors or bar end weights and/or replacing the turn signals with flush mounted units.  I  do wish the seller had posted pics of the odometer and there is no mention of tire condition or ownership history which is a bit of a concern.  Still this is a really nice example of a pretty rare bit of late 1990's sportbike history.

What is this lovely bit of late 1990's homologation history worth?  Well prices for these seem to vary depending on whether the bike was ever raced.  A search through RSBFS previous posts seems to show street versions with an opening bid of around $6000 a few years ago, although we did see a basically New-Old-Stock/NOS be bid up to over 17,000 USD last year.

Given the condition of this one and the location, I would expect reserve prices to be around $8000 USD but I wouldn't be surprised if it goes for over $10,000 USD.  I do think this one will attract both collectors and nostalgia-oriented riders and will probably move fast if the seller is accepting bids outside of ebay.

Hungary for action: 2002 Aprilia RS250

For Sale: 2002 Aprilia RS250 in Hungary

After whiffing on my XR1000 post (I *still* think those bikes are rare, but I concede the sporting nature is a bit lacking), I was determined to find something rare, cool, fast and desirable - who would have guessed that my search would take me to Hungary? Yet located in that post-Eastern Bloc country is this fantastic Ape RS250, which is certainly the antithesis of the aforementioned XR.

In case you have not been paying attention, the RS250 and its variants have been posted here on RSBFS many times (search RSBFS for Aprilia RS250). Heck, even the Boss man rides one! If this bike can't pull me out of my XR funk, then I'm not sure what can.

Powered by a Suzuki-derived 90 degree v-twin, this 250cc two stroke smoker is bolted to a thin-walled aluminum chassis complete with trick banana swingarm. Beefy Showa forks and Sachs rear shock handle suspension duties, and the whole package stops via a trio of Brembo discs. The RS250 was manufactured between 1995 - 2002, but none were imported for road use in the United States. We do see quite a few Cup bikes and track-day only bikes from time to time, and I can only imagine that it might be less expensive for North American enthusiasts to wait for one of those to come through rather than importing from Hungary. Be that as it may....

From the seller:
Aprilia RS250 2002 for sale from original owner in mint condition.

Here is the story what I want to share with you how did I get to this point since this bike was one of my dream and I have never wanted to sell it,serious.
The bike was purchased by me in 2002 Padova,Italy from Aprilia dealer as brandnew.
I put 2500Kms on it first year then it was sitting for 3 years (started in every 3-4 months).Then I have start using it again and put an other 12000Kms in the next 3 years.
In 2009 I have opened my motorcycle shop and service and I had no time to ride it.Now we're on baby project so it looks like this bike needs a friendly new home.
The bike was always garage kept at room temperature,now she is sitting in my showroom covered.
This bike was serviced in every 4000Km along to the factory manual by me.First 1000Km it was running on AGIP Racing 100% syn. after that I have allways used Motul 710 (600).In colder season I was using NGK BR8ECM sparkplugs in hot BR9ECM.There is Motul Transoil 10W-40 100% and Prolong gearbox additives in the trany (made it very smooth)and Motul Coolant in the cooling system.
During the years I have installed the following upgrades on the bike.

- GPT 3000 Series Gear Indicator
- Anodized Preload Adjuster knob on the forklegs
- Jollymoto Full Sytem Exhaust
- HELL front brake line kit
- Custom rear indicators
- Motografix Aprilia Tankpad

The following parts are negotiable for separate sale:
- Bitubo Side Mounted Adjustable Steering Damper
- Carbon Front Fender
- Carbon Rear Fender

I never had issue with the bike since I gave my best allways to this Aprilia (Power Valves Cleaning,Fork Oil change,etc.)
There is only a smaller scuff on the right side of the front panel when I went to close to the wall.
It was never on the track and when I have jumped on it I rode it at least 20Kms each time.
This bike needs nothing but a good carb clean and a little vake up,what I'll do to the new owner before he takes her.

The bike is located in Hungary.

If you have a line on a reputable shipper that will take care of things for you for cheap, going European might be a great way to snag one of these desirable two strokes. I'm not sure how licensing will work out (i.e. sorry Californians), but it might still be worth pursuing if you are lusting after an APE. For RSBFS fans living on the continent, this one is a much closer find than most!

This auction is underway, with an opening bid of only $3,000. There is a reserve in place and ZERO bids as of the time of this writing. As the opening ask is not out of line for the bike (especially one with tasteful mods), I'm guessing that the location is this auction's stumbling block. Tread carefully, ask lots of questions, and be sure and let us know if you happen to snag this great looking bike! Jump to the auction here.

1993 Honda CBR900RR in Highly Desirable Red, White, and Blue

Gary in Utah is back with another stunner in this 93 900RR with just over 10k miles. His ad states it's a reverse import as it is a U.S. spec bike that was imported to Japan and now back in Utah. As with most of the bikes he has sold from his collection, this one shows very well.

1993 Honda CBR900RR for sale on eBay

Back in 1993, the 750cc class was king of the sales chart and Yamaha, Kawasaki, Suzuki all battled it out on the streets and in dealerships to have the best 750cc bike. Meanwhile Honda seemed content to play more in the sport touring segment with its excellent VFR750. But what almost no one outside Honda knew was that Honda was developing a bike that would scramble all the segments and eventually cause most manufacturers to exit the 750cc segment. That bike was the the Honda CBR900RR/"Fireblade".

Formally launched in late in 1992 and appearing in dealerships in 1993, the new 900cc Honda was simply astonishing; sized like a 750cc, powered like a 1000cc, and only a few pounds heavier than a 600cc. (Note: the CBR900RR was 75 pounds lighter than the Yamaha FZR1000, 114 pounds lighter than the Suzuki GSX-R1100 and an astonishing 144 pounds lighter than the Kawasaki ZX-11).

from the seller:

Up for auction is a gorgeous 1993 Honda CBR900RR with only 16,962 kilometers (10,540 miles). Bike is almost in mint condition except for a few scratches in the red decal on the left side gas tank and a few handling marks, However, this CBR is ultra clean. No dents in the tank, no cracks in the plastic, no scratches in the muffler, no scratches on the engine covers, no rips in the seats and no rust. Bike has been very well cared for. I imported this bike last year from Japan. It is a reverse import. (U.S. spec bike that was imported to Japan). All fairings are 100% OEM factory Honda. The white color in the lower fairings have been professionally re-sprayed. The lower and mid fairings along with the fuel tank have been professionally re-cleared to bring out the glossy color and bring back the new appearance. Bike has new OEM mirrors and new OEM turn signals to give the bike that new showroom look. (Original mirrors and turn signals come with the sale). Also installed, new OEM grips and bar ends. Also included with the sale is a Vance & Hines SS2R slip on muffler. The bike looks like a million bucks and is correct right down to every nut and bolt. Bike runs like new. Just serviced with new fluids, new fuel filter, new battery and new Bridgestone Battlax tires. Comes with Utah state title.

Featured Listing: 1989 Kawasaki KR-1R or 1990 Kawasaki KR-1R – buyer’s choice!

Update 5.11.2018: Based on his latest eBay listing, the 1989 is still available. Our original write up from November is shown below. Good luck to buyers and seller! -dc


When RSBFS last listed this 1989 Kawasaki KR-1R on our pages, we considered it to be a bit of a world exclusive. That should tell you the rarity of what we are talking about. But how do you describe TWO KR-1Rs in the same collection? Unicorn doesn't quite cut it. You are looking at two examples of what has to be the rarest of the 250cc two stroke set, both in amazing condition. Utah collector Gary has certainly amassed himself a magnificent cadre of bikes - and RSBFS has been honored to help him list many of those bikes on these pages. But this particular event takes the cake: pony up $20,000 USD and take your pick of either one of the amazing R bikes listed here.

The KR lineup is a bit of a dark horse in the quarter liter sport bike world. Never as popular as the NSR/RG/TZR set, the Kawasaki offering provided a solid chassis and a very powerful parallel twin. In fact, a KR series bike held the 250cc land speed record at Bonneville thanks to that Kawasaki power. Outside of Japan, the KR is relatively unknown, although it was exported to the UK and AUS/NZ in limited numbers. Even the aficionados who are aware of the KR-1/KR-1S/KR-1R family have likely never seen one in person. And while some will be quick to point out that the KR-1R model is really just a 1S with slightly bigger carbs and more power, the value of the model has evolved well beyond the cost of the parts. These are rare, coveted machines and will remain at the sharp end of the collector scale for the foreseeable future.


1989 Kawasaki KR-1R D1 for sale on eBay

From the seller:
The bike came from a Kawasaki collector in Japan. Motor is all stock. Stock carbs,
stock airbox, stock heads, ect all confirmed OEM Kawasaki. Fairings 100% OEM.

Previous collector has cosmetically customized this KR-1R with Kawasaki OEM green
front fender, Beet rear sets and Beet exhaust and mufflers. Some suspension
components have been polished.


1990 Kawasaki KR-1R D2 SOLD

From the seller:
This 1990 KR250-D2 is completely stock and has the black front fender. It has had the rear cowling and the lower cowling professionally re-sprayed. The upper and the tank and all other components are original. New tires, fork seals, braided front brake lines and chain complete the refresh. Comes with Utah title. Runs and idles like new. Bike has been tuned and has new engine fluids. 25,290km’s on the odometer. Bike came from a Kawasaki bike collector in Japan. It is very solid and runs surprisingly well for the mileage.

In case you have not noticed, it is not 1989/1990 anymore. The KR-1R - already rare when it was first introduced - has become a very exclusive tile in the two stroke collector mosaic. These were built by Kawasaki as sports production racers, and as such many (most?) were thrashed and cast aside. Those that survived often fell victim to sea air and corrosion common to the Japanese home market. In short, a clean and loved KR-1R is a rare survivor of a rare species. Here at RSBFS we always recommend that if you are in the market you should seek out the best example of a collector model that you can find - but how often can you find more than one example to compare? Today you can find TWO of these remarkable KR-1R models in pristine condition in one place - all you need to do is pick the one you want. Kawasaki isn't building any more of these, and the world's supply is low and getting lower. Resto mods and parts bikes may be available sporadically in the future, but you are not going to find bikes in this condition often. If a KR-1R is on your bucket list, you might want to act before these jewels appreciate even more. Contact Gary at rmurangemasters@aol.com to seal the deal. Good Luck!!
