Featured Listing: 1990 Honda CBR400RR

Update 4.9.2018: SOLD for $5,500! Congratulations to buyer and seller! -dc

Greg at Deftone Cycles is one of a few friends of the site who consistently manages to curate a stable of top-notch grey-market bikes. This 1990 Honda CBR400RR is no different, and is being offered at no reserve.

1990 Honda CBR400RR for sale on eBay

The bike wears Honda's signature red-white-blue fairings, which have survived their 28 years and 9,000 miles with just a few blemishes. The biggest issue, a small crack in a lower fairing, was repaired before the bike was put on offer. Aside from some aluminum oxidation here and there, the unrestored machine is otherwise very clean.

From the eBay listing:

Honda CBR400RR NC29. *** NO RESERVE *** 9,352 Miles (15,052 Kilometers) Completely original and unrestored. Sporting the rare White Red & Blue colors. Mechanically Sorted. All fluids are fresh. Shifts and revs to redline perfectly. Starts effortlessly every time. Very Honest Bike. Very few scratches overall. Lower right fairing is a small crack. I reinforced it with fiberglass as not to worry about it spreading. Windscreen has hairline crack near mirror, hardly noticeable. Please see Images. Fuel tank is Rust Free. Factory white wheels are excellent. Has Vin Matching State of Ohio Title. NC29-1003** “Buyer is responsible for their own State Requirements.” Imported into the States through all legal channels. Sold as is. Buyer responsible for shipping. Thanks for looking. Please email any questions.

The CBR400RR managed to survive a kind of odd place in Honda's lineup, wedged between the truly insane, 20,000-RPM CBR250RR, the special-feeling, V4-powered VFR400R and the CBR600. Still, in the markets where it was available from new it sold in bushels, thanks to being license-friendly, faster than the 250, cheaper than the VFR and blessed with the poise and marvelous engine Honda made its name on.

This one is nice enough to end up in a collection or be used daily. We'd probably land somewhere in the middle, reserving the beast for weekend blasts and perhaps the occasional track day.

Reserve met: Pristine 1996 Honda CBR900RR

The Honda CBR900RR is a bucketlist bike for me. Everything about the machine speaks to me, from its status as a genre-definer to the styling and panache that come from being built when Honda was still an innovative powerhouse.

1995 Honda CBR900RR for sale on eBay

The '90s were still heady times for Big Red, as the marque spat out mind blowing racing machines and sold facsimilies thereof to the general public. When the CBR900RR came along, it didn't betray the family tradition, bringing 600 supersport size and literbike power.

This 1996 Honda CBR900RR wears the iconic Erion Racing livery, celebrating the team's success aboard race-kitted versions. It still has its original Bridgestone tires on, and the torque marks on the rear axle show the tires have never been off. If you want one of these for your collection, this is your machine.

From the eBay listing:

I'll tell you right up front, It's a pretty good bet that this is the most original, lowest mileage CBR900RR in the US. Others may say it, but this IS THE REAL DEAL. It's in unbelievable condition on top of being graced with the highly desirable Erion Racing scheme of US Honda's 90's racing dynasty. It was a dream bike for me after having a 1995 new back in '95, and just months later wishing I had waited a few months after they released the Erion scheme with the larger motor of the '96.

Completely original and never molested! This is as close to the condition it left the factory in December 1995 as you may ever find in your life time. While others may glaze over their mileage, aftermarket exhausts or modifications, there will none of that. No tricks like professional studio type photos or 100+ hours of complete disassembly and detailing to make up for what it cant offer.

Having only 2,905 miles helps cut through the smoke and mirrors of elaborate photographic and detailing exercises. Zero incidents, no tip-overs, just an honest bike in unbelievable condition. No excuses...you WILL NOT find a nicer original bike than the one I am offering to you today.

You can know this bike has only seen 2,905 miles since it's still on it's original Bridgestone BT56 Battleaxe tires Honda installed in Japan when it was built in December 1995. Note the tire picture showing the 1995 date codes (9501 = first week of 1995) as well as it still having unbroken axle torque proof marks from when they were installed at the factory. While the tires are not something you would want to hit the road on, they go to the bikes authenticity so you can feel 100% confident this is a true survivor and the mileage is legitimate. If plan to collect and to store / display her, you are golden.

Other rarely seen items you may note in the photos of this gorgeous bike outside its obvious condition which speak to originality:

It's factory exhaust
Full fender with matching VIN decal
All warning decals.

Essentially you are looking at a time capsule from the mid 90's heyday of sportbikes when the CBR was king of hill. It turns heads today like it did over 20 years ago. I have been asked more than once if it's new from those unfamiliar with the 900rr's.

I'm the third owner and have had it for several years. All owners were older. Now that several years have past, health and age have changed, so I have to be honest that my original plan to have it forever is not realistic for my situation. As hard as it is, I hope someone else will enjoy the opportunity to get that dream CBR they've always wanted.

Disclaimers:
Please ask questions, and If you are local, feel free to set up a time to see her in person. It shows beautifully in the photos, though its nicer in person due to using a standard older camera. I hesitate to say mint as its so over used, but its pretty darn close. The only flaw I am aware of is a pinhead chip in in the small red decal on the front fairing and small scratch in the white 'o' decal that is part of the 'Honda' name on the bottom fairing. It comes with an original correct OEM Honda red upper decal should someone wanted to change it (few minutes). I did not in order to present it as authentically, but I bought it years ago just in case they ever stopped being available. The tank pad is a Honda original accessory applied by the dealer in 1996 at the request of the original buyer.

The bike may be offered locally, I reserve the right to terminate the auction for local sale.

 


The reserve has been met at $5,400, so this bike will sell. If the bidding stays anywhere near that price, this CBR will be a cheap, high-pedigree addition to someone's collection.

Turn of the Century nudist: 20-mile 1999 Suzuki SV650

On its face, this bike is neither rare nor a sport bike. Suzuki made somewhere north of one billion SVs between 1999 and 2008, and if you include the Gladius and the newly-minted SV, those numbers take another jump skyward. Still, their versatility, low price, buttery, non-threatening torque curve and not-too-shabby performance figures have meant SV-650s have been club race and new rider darlings since their inception.

1999 Suzuki SV650 for sale on eBay

This 1999 Suzuki SV650 has to be the lowest-mileage, cleanest example of its breed on the market, having covered just 20 miles since its birth 19 years ago. With a new set of tires, this thing will be as fresh and ready to roll as it was when Limp Bizkit's "Nookie" ruled the airwaves and you could still buy an Oldsmobile. The seller says it got something of a refresh when it was awakened, and it sits ready to go to a new home.

From the eBay listing:

This bike has been sitting in the garage for 18 years. It was dusted off and has a new battery, carburetors were professionally cleaned and it is ready to go to a new home. It is running like a new bike and the body work is clean and not oxidized. The paint looks great. It is fast and loud. Look at the pictures.

Somehow, the bike has not attracted any bids at a pretty attractive $3,800 opening. We expect that will change as the few remaining days wind down, and it will be very interesting to see what the bike finally enters the 21st century for.

Race ready: Deus-restored 1973 Yamaha TD3

As a road racing icon, the Yamaha TD series really needs no introduction. The internet is positively lousy with rhapsodic accounts of its achievements on a racetrack in the hands of big names and amateurs alike. Not just screamingly fast, the 250cc parallel twin TDs were reliable as the sunrise, which made them very hard for contemporary iron to top.

1973 Yamaha TD3 for sale on eBay

They're still darlings of vintage racers, aided by simple air-cooled architecture and widely available parts. This 1973 Yamaha TD3 has been made race ready by Woolie's Workshop, an arm of the Deus Ex Machina classic bike franchise. It has been updated with a front disc brake and an Ohlins steering damper to edge it closer to modern spec.

From the eBay listing:

Fresh from Deus’ Woolie’s Workshop

c.1973 Yamaha TD3 250cc Racing Motorcycle

The mainstay of 250cc and 350cc class racing at national and international level for many years, the twin-cylinder two-stroke Yamaha well deserved the title of 'privateer's friend'. The 250cc TD2 arrived in 1969, replacing the TD1C, and immediately proved capable of winning Grands Prix, privateer Kent Andersson triumphing in the German round at Hockenheim that year, one of Yamaha's most significant classic victories. The giant leap forward from the TD1C had been achieved thanks to a comprehensive redesign that saw the porting and exhaust system updated, superior Mikuni carburettors adopted and the chassis, suspension and brakes greatly improved. Looking like a scaled down Norton Featherbed, the TD2's chassis was a development of that used for the RD56 works racer. Kel Carruthers on the works Benelli 'four' denied Kent Anderson the 250cc World Championship in 1969 but the following year the TD2 came good when Rod Gould, riding a works machine entered by Yamaha Motor NV of Holland, took the title.

The TD3 was an evolutionary step forward in the long line of successful Yamaha air-cooled two-strokes, and as it happens it would also be the last in its line. Released by the Japanese marque in 1972, the TD3 benefitted from a horizontally split crankcase, which holds the 247cc internals, producing about 50bhp and a redline in excess of 10,000 revs, which can propel the diminutive little racer’s 230 pounds to blistering racing performance figures with incredible reliability.

Fresh from Deus Ex Machina’s “Woolie’s Workshop”, this 250cc Yamaha 2-Stroke screamer was built to be competitive. Like all the builds out of Woolie’s Workshop, it has that ‘final 5%”, which is always the most assiduously earned and separates the great bikes from the mere good ones. Every component was addressed, rebuilt, refinished and restored with Woolie’s exquisite attention to detail, including engine, gearbox, and all cycle parts. Upgrades include the Ohlins steering damper and disc front brake. Built to race, but with no track time since the build, this is a fantastic opportunity to own a custom purpose-built race bike to be a class winning AHRMA machine. Tuck in, hold on, and safety-wire your bum to the seat….

Sold on a Bill of Sale.

The bike has been run but not raced since it was finished, so it is just waiting for a vintage racer to give it the neck wringing it so richly deserves.

Two stroke restomod: 1986 Suzuki RG500

The problem with owning classic sportbikes is that even in their best shape, they perform like they would have 30 years ago, which can be a terrifying affair if you're used to modern suspension and tires. Couple that with a take-no-prisoners 500cc two-stroke powerband, and you're really playing with fire. This 1986 Suzuki RG500 has had those concerns addressed, with mods to allow it to run modern tires and reworked suspension and brakes.

1986 Suzuki RG500 restomod for sale on eBay

The work was done by renowned RG500 tech Rick Lance, and the seller says no stone was left unturned. The bike was taken down to the chassis and gone over from top to bottom. The forks have been rebuilt and the anti-dive bypassed, and the engine has been treated to a mild tune, including a rare set of aftermarket expansion chambers.

From the eBay listing:

1986 Suzuki RG500 Gamma. Full Rick Lance Gamma build "resto mod" from the frame up, in excellent condition, mods inc 17 inch wheels, GSXR brakes, Fox remote shock, upgraded forks internals, anti dive block off, plus all the usual Lance Gamma mods, filters, taps, clutch. Rare Tommy Crawford expansion chambers, motor has stock bore with mild tune, lightweight bodywork with single seat with excellent stock style paint scheme, less than one thousand miles since full build including the engine, suspension, gearbox, etc etc, as you would expect from a Rick Lance build it runs and rides perfectly, carburation is spot on pulling cleanly from idle to the red line.

Hard to find these now especially in this condition with everything being practically new, gets lots of attention where ever it goes, sounds amazing, from an era when GP bikes were 2 strokes and four cylinders there will never be anything like it again, own a piece of history!

Clean GA title in my name, located in North Georgia USA Can assist with shipping

The price is an eye-watering $26,500, which is staggering even as the price of nice stockers is climbing. That said, if a modern-style two-stroke superbike is your thing, we doubt you could build your own for cheaper.

Featured Listing: Zero-mile Laverda 750S

When a mid-nineties Ducati just ain't cutting it as far as style, panache, build sheet, rarity and dubious build quality are concerned, it's hard to do better than a contemporary Laverda. Sure, you could go Bimota and snag Japanese reliability with the sex appeal only Italy can muster, but you couldn't be too much more obvious.

1998 Laverda 750S for Sale on eBay.it

Today's Laverda 750S solves all of those problems, with a reputation for millimeter-perfect handling, pretty Paoli squishy bits and a proprietary, fuel-injected 750cc parallel twin. The bike appears to have covered just eight kilometers from new, and is supplied with nearly enough spares to make an entire new bike.

From the seller:

I’m interested in selling my 0 miles Laverda 750 S (the bike + spare parts of a 15.000 km sister bike: engine, electric system, forks, wheels. No frame, no fairings).

Top shelf components:

Brembo brake system;
Marchesini wheels;
Paioli forks.

Only two items aren't original: the carbon look mirrors, coordinated with other true carbon details, and the electric system (a more common and reliable Ducati Monster's electric system is on).

The bike has always been stored in a warm and dry garage, it's is maniacally well cared, the original tires weren't in good conditions, hence I switched them with the twin bike's 5.000 km ones. The bike is ready to roar tomorrow, then it would be a nice deal for collectors and/or users targeting not an ordinary ride. A gorgeous sound and the extreme rarity put the user under the spotlights even on a sunny day.

In case of further need of spare parts, I can put you in contact with "3C moto" company, managed by a former Laverda technician and big lover of the brand who withdrew all the original Laverda parts (or you can straightly contact www.3cmoto.it).

My target price is 5.600 euro (a bike and half, it seems a fair price for a ready-to-use exotica, isn't it?).

The bike is located in Varese, Northern Italy. I can arrange a worldwide delivery at the purchaser's cost (air or sea, according to buyer preference). Any precaution and delivery terms (insurance for the transport included) will be agreed according to the destination.

Contact Stephano with your interest: da3112.sa0202@gmail.com

The Laverda 750S represents a throwback to a time when there were still companies that very much felt like they were screwed together by dedicated enthusiasts in a small shop. Japanese bikes are great for obvious reasons, but they all carry just a whiff of their manufacturers' roots in heavy equipment manufacture.

If you can swing the 5,600 EUR pricetag and import fees, this is a great way to set yourself apart from the crowd.
