Featured Listing: Low-mile 2002 Triumph Daytona 955i Centennial Edition

The 2002 Triumph Daytona 955i Centennial Edition is a sneaky beast, as at first blush it's just Triumph's big, hairy-chested early 2000s bruiser in a smart shade of green. It takes a real Triumph aficionado to see and feel the differences between this one-of-200 special and its less exotic counterpart.

This bike has seen very little use, showing just 3,923 miles. The original owner apparently took it on some longish trips around Idaho, before moving it on to the seller. The dormant periods have served it well, as the fairings appear to be blemish free and immaculately clean. A generous handful of tasteful mods -- including ECU work, an under-tail kit and an exhaust -- add to the aura.

Hidden under the Aston Green paintwork -- a metallic hue a couple shades darker than British Racing Green -- Triumph hid a set of carbon fiber fairings. The gauges also got a smattering of the black stuff to keep the high-tech materials brief going and make sure nobody would mistake the CE for a cheaper ride.

Triumph saved the real party pieces for the chassis, where they threw on the single-sided swingarm from the previous generation Dayona, which added style at a nearly four-pound weight penalty. They also lengthened the wheelbase, but snipped off .3 of a degree of rake and nearly 2.5 mm of trail. Doesn't sound like much, but it sharpened the CE over the standard model.

From the seller:

Mostly original, with the only changes being a pipe/K&N with an under-tail kit and some handlebar/control changes to make the bike more comfortable.
I am the second owner. 49 state bike, was originally from Idaho where the owner only did a few long rides in good weather and then sold it to me in Apr 2013 with about 1900 miles, where I took the bike back to San Diego where it is at presently. Car-fax report will likely show 0 for mileage since reporting mileage on a bike over 10 years old was not required here in CA. -Please inquire for details on this. Since then I've ridden the bike only occasionally and never abused it. I had a 2009 Speed Triple but sold it after a couple years, I just wasn't much of a fan of the way it rode but always wanted to try one of these Daytonas. I was surprised by how different the bikes were. The 02 despite being older and a very similar bike to start with was quite a bit stronger running. Torquier, and the transmission shifted like a swiss watch compared to the S3. I just don't ride much anymore and would just like to see it go to someone else to enjoy. All maintenance was performed at San Diego Triumph (Rocket Cycles), and there is really nothing that needs done at this time except maybe for the tires. I put fresh ones on when I got it and the date stamp is oct 2012 so they are just reaching their in-service time even though they show hardly any wear. Brakes/chain/clutch are original and good condition. Bike has the solo tail cover and comes with the pillion saddle. Pics do not show the passenger footrests but they are available as are most of the stock parts and I've kept all receipts. Original toolkit available. General shape of the bike is excellent, with the only flaws being small scuffs that come more from just sitting in the garage than being on the road embarrassingly.

Wolf/Trident Unter-tail Kit (Original available and comes with the bike)
Wolf/Trident Carbon fiber exhaust (Original available and comes with the bike)
Aftermarket tinted windscreen (Original available and comes with the bike)
LSL Tour Match clip-ons, which I had titanium anodized (Original available and comes with the bike)
Polished, then titanium colored anodized top clamp to match the LSL parts (Original available and comes with the bike)
Titanium bar-ends (Original available and comes with the bike)
675 Daytona Clutch perch to fit the LSL bars (Original available and comes with the bike)
CRG levers in titanium (Original available and comes with the bike)
Shorai Lithium Ion Battery With Shorai charger
TuneECU programmed ECU with Julian tune. Engine idle/over-run is good. o2 sensor is used. Engine pulls clean with no flat spots.
Bridgestone Battleax BT016 Pro (Oct 2012 MFR Date)
Racetech front fork rebuild with new springs and gold valves for a 150lb rider.
Skyking fairing savers
Trimmed length gear shift lever (New OEM unit comes with the bike

I also have a spare fuel tank that is still new, in the box that comes with the bike. Original owner had chipped the paint on the original tank and bought a replacement but never installed it and I didn't think the chip looked bad so I left it. The chip is touched up and you don't see it unless your looking for it. I also have 2 extra front sprockets in the smaller, 17 and 18 tooth sizes in case you want a lower gear. Original owner bought them but didn't need them, and I didn't either with the torque the bike's got. It always did fine off the line and a shorter sprocket would probably have made it more of a handful. During my ownership, I've had problems with charging. Common on these bikes, so I installed a shunt wire with fuze to improve the charging and the bike now puts out about 14-14.4V at idle so no issues now. Also had trouble with the low-fuel warning light and an associated EML light which is a design flaw with these bikes. So a new fuel sender went in with a float stopper modification that fixes the issue. Bike now just needs a new rider.

The Daytona 955i Centennial Edition has yet to reach the upper echelons of collectability, but with so few produced and with as special as the machines are, they're likely to stay valuable to the right seller. If you're looking for a rare, special, brute-in-a-suit British sport tourer, this is your steed. Seller Joseph can be reached here and asks $5,800.

Featured Listing: 2000 Ducati 748RS track bike

Showing up to your local track day on any late '90s or early-aughts Ducati is pretty close to the best way to elevate your cred above the herds of hammered SV650s and GSXRs buzzing around each other like a mobile swap meet. To be the guy on the 2002 996 is to be the guy the pimpled youths suddenly revere. But at RSBFS, we exist to take you to the stars. Behold: the 2000 Ducati 748RS. The never seen, seldom mentioned carbon fiber-bodied race homologation version of the already serious 748R. We're bringing you this bike as a featured listing from our buddy Dave at Seattle Used Bikes. You're welcome.

The 748RS was made in insanely low numbers -- something like 50 were built -- and its engine cases were filled with unobtanium parts that made the bikes fragile, expensive and ludicrously fast. It sports thinner chromoly frame rails than the stock machine, and the chassis is bedecked adjustable with Ohlins suspension at each end. Handling the gases produced by the special mill was a 54mm Termignoni exhaust system unique to the 748RS. Slowing things down is a humongous set of Brembos bolted to featherweight Marchesini wheels. They came from the factory with stunning naked carbon fiber bodywork, though this bike has been given the proper Ducati Corse paintwork.

Into the mid-aughts, the 748RS saw success in the AMA Battle of the Twins and Pro Thunder categories. Sadly, this machine's first owner, who was campaigning it in Pro Thunder, died racing an SV650. Time and the relentless march of technology mean that this bike won't be competitive in anything but classic racing series now, but that seems more fitting than to just throw it at a few track days.

This example has sat mostly dormant since its turn of the century racing career. Its engine was overhauled and further hot rodded to 853cc in 2007 when the second owner acquired it, but it hasn't seen any action save for a break in and some dyno runs. We'll let Dave fill in the details:

This is another bike from our friends private collection of very special bikes. A very limited edition 2000 Ducati 748RS. Ducati produced a very limited run of 748RS machines (around 15 first year), which were intended as full racing machines and as such came with no road-going equipment. The engine internals and components were vastly different from any road-based Ducati, using a variety of light-weight, high-strength materials making them extremely expensive to purchase, run and maintain. The RS came with a 54 mm exhaust system and a slightly smaller size and gauge of Chromoly tubing was used on the frame to reduce weight even further.

This particular bike was campaigned in Southern California in the AMA Pro Thunder series back in the day. Sadly, in the early 2000’s, the owner of the bike passed while racing an SV650. The ‘RS sat unused for several years until GP Motorcycles in San Diego was tasked with making it ready for sale on behalf of the former owner’s family. It was purchased by our customer in 2007 as a local track day toy. He immediately shipped it to Mark Sutton at the DucShop in the Atlanta area for a freshen-up. They found the motor to be a bit tired so it was decided to build an 853cc trackday weapon out of the ‘RS motor. No expense was spared in order to create one serious package, we have full build receipts as well. . $6500 later it was shipped back to Seattle and has been in storage here ever since. Sadly never making its way back to the track. The only use the bike has seen since then was on the dyno and around the DucShop parking lot. There were some upgrades performed along the way, the previous owner upgraded the bike with an even larger kit radiator from a 996RS and the longer magnesium swingarm. Along with Superbike spec Marchesini magnesium wheels with a 16.5″, we also have a new 17″ in a box available for sale.. Also if someone is serious about tracking this bike, there is a 2nd fresh 748RS crate motor available as well, it too was completely gone through and broken in at DucShop.

If you wanna go truly fast, the same money will buy you a next-to-new Yamaha R1. But that would miss the point, and the glory of owning such a focused weapon. The bike will require the attention that only true thoroughbreds do, with new valves a necessity every 750 miles or so. Helpfully, this bike is available with a spare 748RS engine (but is not included), which should at least allow you to rotate mills at rebuild time.

The price for all this 748RS is just $14,000, spare 748RS not included. If you have the means, we'd highly recommend contacting Dave before it's too late.

Sponsored Listing: Buy a 2008 Ducati 1098R, help the next great get his start

Our buddies and Premier Sponsor over at Iconic Motorbikes are making a big effort to get a passionate and talented American roadracer his big break in Europe. The team met Brenden when they were at Laguna Seca for the WSBK round. The team,Brenden and his dad hit it off, and a sponsorship was born. Not long after, Brenden locked down a 2nd-place at Sonoma Raceway and got invited to Spain to try out for the Red Bull team.

2008 Ducati 1098R for sale on eBay

To get there, he needs about $8,000, which is a big ask for an everyday kid with big passion and big talent. Iconic Motorbikes' Adam Tromp has already got a GoFundMe up and running for Brenden's travel, and now he's decided to sweeten the pot with some of the proceeds from the sale of this 2008 Ducati 1098R. It's a fitting contribution to a special cause.

This 1098R is number 263 out of a production run of just 450, and has spent the majority of its life in a dealer's collection on a battery tender. It has accumulated just 1,770 miles in its 10-year life. That does not mean, however it has been neglected. The carbon fiber bodywork is flawless and Adam says the bike fires instantly. Throw on a set of tires and timing belts and away you go.

From the eBay listing:

**ONLY 1770 MILES**

Up for sale is our gorgeous 1098R! The pictures don't do it justice, she shines like new with no cosmetic flaws whatsoever on the bodywork. This particular motorbike is #263 of only 450 made and you'd be hard pressed to find one in better shape or with less miles.

We have over 55 bikes in our Museum / Dealership and have decided to sell some of the duplicates so seeing that we have this one and a 1098R Bayliss, this one has to go. We'll be selling one of our Fila 999R's before too long as well to make room for another collection that we've acquired.

This particular bike was in a Dealers collection for many years before we purchased most (if not all) of their collectible bikes as they needed the $ for an expansion. We've put only a few miles on it since possession over the past 6 or so months but she's now ready for a new home.

The 1098R has a full carbon fiber body, full of Ti Engine parts, gold Marchesini wheels, carbon Termignoni exhaust...the list goes on and on. For those of you that are well versed on this particular machine, you'll also note that the 1098R Ducati's were actually equipped with an 1198 motor even know the bodywork clearly states 1098....Gotta love Ducati :).

This bike was in storage for quite some time but fires right up and has been kept on a battery tender for most of it's life with a new battery installed earlier this year. Tire's are in great shape and have very few miles on them but they are dated from mid 2008 so if you're planning to ride it you may want to consider new rubber. (We offer great deals on tires too)

Here are the only imperfections:...

First, Ducati suggests a belt change and service whenever a bike sits for 2 years and the bike will flag a "Service Due" if it's not handled. That said, as soon as you turn it on you'll notice SERVICE across the dash. Not knowing if this bike with go into a collection or be ridden, we're not having it serviced prior to sale unless the new owner requires it. If that's the case, we're a full service shop and will either handle it in-house or work with a local Ducati expert that we use from time to time if we're too backed up. The Buyer is responsible for this cost and assume it's going to be somewhere in the range of 1000-1200.

Two, if you notice one of the final pictures of the swingarm, it has some type of stain on it where either some type of cleaner was left on it that stained the arm or perhaps it was a poor choice of chain cleaner of some sort. It's not terribly noticeable and I'm sure there's a way to remedy it but I've tried plexus and a few other cleaners with no luck. Again though, you have to look at it with a light to really see that it reflects oddly.

The bike is absolutely gorgeous in person, feel free to fly into LAX, we'll pick you up and you can see her in person. We're only about 15 minutes from the Airport.

A percentage of this sale of this bike will go to our fund raising efforts to get a young man we sponsor to the RedBull tryouts this October in Spain. We started a GoFundMe campaign today to take some of the $ pressure off the family so know that the sale of this bike will help fund that trip as well. It can be found by searching "Iconic Motorbikes" or "Brenden RedBull" on GoFundMe.

Thank you and contact us for any specific questions or picture requests. Also, take a look at our other bikes for sale at www.iconicmotorbikes.com. We are adding and selling bikes daily so check back often.

With a portion of the sale going to make a kid's biggest dream come true, the bike should be a win-win for anyone with the shekels to spare. When Brenden makes it, the bike will seem like a bonus compared to the being able to say you helped launch his career. If you can't swing the Duc, make a contribution to the fundraiser!

Featured Listing: Sorted Harley-Davidson XR750TT replica

9.13.2018: Now on eBay. Good luck to buyers and seller! -dc

Looking at strange beasts like the 2019 Harley-Davidson FXDR, you'd be forgiven for forgetting that Harley ever had anything to do with road racing. Or turns in general, for that matter. Years and brand image have done much to erase the memory of the 1972 Harley-Davidson XR750TT, an honest-to-God, race-winning Milwaukee steed based around the firm's venerated 750cc flat track engine.

Harley built about 10 black and orange, fully faired examples of the XR750TT in '72, and in Cal Rayborn's hands they had a bunch of success in international match racing, despite putting out south of 100 horsepower, with most relying on front drum (!) brakes. The Lord works in mysterious ways, we guess.

Today's listing is a package:  The first bike is a turn-key replica of Rayborn's mount, albeit with some poetic license taken to tame some of the sketchiness of the original. For one thing, the builder stuck on a proper dual-disc brake setup. It also rides on a monoshock C&J frame and wears suspension from Ohlins and Forcella Italia. Beyond that, though, the bike is true to its roots, with a 1993 XR750 mill swaddled in lovely, delicate reproduction bodywork.

The second part of the package is a rolling chassis that is a nearly perfect replica of Rayborn's mount. The seller had intended to swap in the engine from the first bike to make a fairly faithful replica.

From the seller:

Harley Davidson XR750 Road Racer, C&J Frame Mono Shock, XR750 engine from 1993, Forcella Italia fork, Ohlins shock, Wire Wheels, complete Body Kit incl. fairing, partly new painted, new windshield, very good condition, runs great, race ready. Harley Davidson XR750TT Replika rolling chassis, complete except engine, Forcella Italia fork, Koni shocks, complete body kit, front wire wheel 18" and 16", many parts....

The Roadracer has been built in the late 90ies, based on a C&J Flattrack frame and a factory original 1993 XR750 engine.

Road racing fork Forcella Italia, Shock is Ohlins, brakes are high quality racing stuff. Equipped with the complete XRTT bodywork and Wire Wheels. This bike was raced by the pre owner in the late 90ies to middle 2000s at GrabtheFlag races and similar events in Europe.

The engine has been recently redone by the last owner and runs very good. I bought this bike 2 years ago and  rode this bike in 2017 only one day at a small race track for practice.

Additional there is a complete XRTT Replika Chassis with bodywork, only missing the engine. This bike was equipped with a XR1000 engine and was also raced in the late 90ies to early 2000s at european classic racing events. Fork is Forcella Italia, shocks are Koni, 16" and 18" front wheel.

My intention was to put the XR750 engine in the XRTT Replika Chassis, and ending up with a fine XRTT Replika, and buy a 90ies Sportster or Buell Engine for the C&J- Chassis and having a cool and powerfull Race Bike for Classic Races.

I would prefer selling as a package, for € 29000 OBO

Bikes are located in Berlin/ Germany.

Email: oldietech@t-online.de

The bike is across the Atlantic in Germany, but is very much worth the effort to import and turn into a once-in-a-while track day mount. With a full extra chassis waiting in the wings, there's little excuse to let it sit.

Featured Listing: 1996 Honda RVF400R for sale in Canada

As the little brother to the legendary RC45, the 1996 Honda RVF400R in some ways got stuck playing second fiddle to the faster bike. That isn't exactly fair treatment, though, as the screaming little gear-driven V4 had the character and handling to make a very good case for it being a world-class standalone machine.

They have had something of a resurgence lately, as people who want the thrill of a bike whose main weapon is momentum and value mid-90s Japanese build quality gobble these up on the grey market. Were it not for their rarity, they make a true case for themselves as an everyman sportbike. They're not overly expensive, they're reliable, and they suit new and experienced riders.

This one has an aftermarket powdercoat job on its wheels, but the bodywork is apparently all original and looks to be in good shape. The seller says it currently serves daily rider duties. It has a few easily reversed mods, and the seller is providing the original pieces should a new owner want to take it back to stock.

From the seller:

I have a Honda rvf all original body panels,it's a daily rider.
The bike has a Tyga rear tale section on the bike right now.
Bike comes with all original parts, also has a HRC upgraded ECM
Tires are a year and a half old, brakes are one year old, it has HEL stainless steal brake lines.
Wheels are powder coded white not black.
Over all condition out of ten would be a 8.
Let me know if you need any other info.
Attached are some pictures
We are from St. Jacobs,( just outside of Waterloo) Ontario, Canada.
Asking $8000 US or best offer.
Thanks a Dave
Phone- 5195728811

The asking price is in line with what we see these bikes go for, despite the fact that buyers on the southern side of the border will have to contend with importing a bike that is newer than 25 years old. With the market as hot as it seems to still be for bikes like this one, that shouldn't be too awful a prospect.

Featured Listing: 2007 Ducati 999S Parts Unlimited

The Ducati 999 series has something of a mixed reputation, wrapping a widely panned design around a chassis and engine that the press universally said was the best package on the road when it debuted. The praise was followed by three World Superbike championships in its production run.

2007 Ducati 999S Parts Unlimited for sale on eBay

This 2007 Ducati 999S Parts Unlimited is a U.S.-only package that celebrated the AMA Superbike mounts of Ben Bostrom and Neil Hodgson. Just 150 of them were built, with Ohlins suspension and a couple extra horsepower to set them apart from standard bikes. The bikes all had Bostrom and Hodgson's signatures on the tail section.

This one has had a fender eliminator, some trick clutch parts and a ceramic-coated exhaust installed, and has covered just 3,700 miles.

From the eBay listing:

Let me start with some of the things that were said about the 999 when it came out:

MCN of the U.K. which called it "simply the best V-Twin on the planet", and Motorbikestoday.com, which described it as "the most desirable, most exciting roadbike on the planet" in 2004. MotorcycleUSA.com described it as "stupendous" and "the epitome of V-Twin power."

A couple things that check the boxes of a future collectable is Limited Production and Race winning history.

This Ducati 999S is in excellent condition (only 150 of these made). Equipped with Ohlins front and rear suspension, Ohlins steering damper, Termignoni exhaust, and swingarm spools. The tail section has been signed by Neil Hodgson and Ben Bostrom.

Upgrades include Ducati Performance clutch pressure plate, EVR open clutch cover, ceramic coated exhaust, and Competition Werks fender eliminator

Buyer is responsible for shipping. I will meet a shipper at a location of my choosing at a time that works for me. I have many transportation companies I have used in the past and been very happy with that I can suggest.

As the video shows, the bike is in impeccable shape and runs like the day it was new. Thirst for these hasn't reached a fever pitch yet, but there is always a market for low-mileage, low-production Ducatis of any flavor.
