About

We scour the internet looking for publicly posted classified advertisements of rare and exotic sport motorcycles. We post the best finds on this blog.

Please note we do not represent the seller's of these vehicles. We highlight rare, collectible, and survivor sportbikes from the 80's and 90's as they become available online. Consider subscribing by email or .RSS in the right column of this site.

As a practice we re-host images and ad copy to preserve the listing for future reference. If you would like additional attribution for your work, or wish to remove your listing from our site, we are happy to accommodate. Please email me at dan@motoringblogs.com

I caught the motorcycle bug around 5th grade. I stayed with dirt bikes until college and that is when I knew I had to have something different I began reading about "grey bikes". Of course an RG500 was at the top of my list to own. I still haven't fulfilled that dream. Of course I was a Schwantz fan so I set my sights on a RGV250. I did own a Lucky Strike RGV250 (VJ22) before selling it in a moment of weakness. I currently own a 1996 RGV250SP (VJ23) and am rebuilding a 1990 GSXR400R. I definitely favor anything that you have to use premix with but am a fan of anything different and exotic. When I'm not slaving away at the RSBFS corporate headquarters I am video editing a cable news network


Mike - Contributing Author

Mike has been riding on two wheels since the age of 4, and his first streetbike was a Kawasaki AR50. He still has that AR, in addition to several other sportbikes - two of which were found on RSBFS! Hobbies include trackdays and spending time with his wife (who rides as much as he does).


Rem Nivens - Contributing Author

Rem's first bike was a CBR 600 Hurricane he bought in college. But then he took a long break from motorcycles (regretting it ever since) and got back in the saddle in 2007 on a SV 650 and since has added a 2003 VFR 800. He's also a huge fan of MotoGP and of racing in general. Rem works in government and also plays drums in an occasional band.


Jared Schafer - Contributing Author

I have always had an interest in performance vehicles and racing. This is my first riding season and I have been learning on an SV650 and hope to get my own bike very soon. I am also a huge MotoGP fan and enthusiast. I also enjoy classic BMWs and anything from the motorsport division.
