Update on Bay Area Collection For Sale

Here is an update from Rory on the remaining inventory in the collection -- with pictures!

Update 1.20.10: I got another update from Rory, and he tells me the RC45 and 888 are both sold now.

We've been a bit surprised by the great response through your site and been scrambling a bit to keep up with the inquiries. Invariably, people have been asking for details on bikes that we haven’t pulled out of storage to work on. And, as you already know, a real enthusiast from the East Coast struck a deal for 5 of the bikes, redirecting our focus for a time. A fellow drove up from LA on Christmas Eve to take the Ducati F1, and we have someone coming from Reno today to look at the Honda RC45.

We've at least rolled all the remaining bikes out to take photos and determine general condition and mileage. Anyone can contact us directly for more info.

Here is what is remaining as of January 5th:

’04 Benelli Tornado Tre - This bike has only 2 miles showing on the odometer and looks as though it has never been on the road.

’00 MV F4 - 426 miles The VIN# on this bike ends with 100000. While we can’t be absolutely sure, I spoke with someone at MV USA who believes that this probably the first F4 in the country.

’98 Ducati 916 SPS - 6059 miles. I’ve ridden this one around the block – great bike.

’93 Ducati 888 SPO - 2031 miles. Next on our list to get running.

’06 Yamaha R1 Rossi replica - 17 miles.

’06 Yamaha R1 Special Edition – 0 miles. No photo, but it’s the traditional Yamaha yellow and black paint scheme.

’99 Yamaha R7 OW02 - 3646 km.

’94 Honda RC45 - 3718 miles. Has two 1” diameter paint scuffs on side and rear panels but otherwise good shape. This bike is running now.

’72 Norton 810 Dunstall - 1983 miles. A very nice example and also now running.

Please contact Rory at vtauto@sbcglobal.net for further information about the remaining bikes available for sale in the collection. I'm still tempted to get a second mortgage and get a big trailer for most of them!

If you have a special bike or collection that needs attention, email us at web@raresportbikesforsale.com. We'd be happy to consider your submission for regular posting, or we can provide a feature service for a small fee that will promote the listing on every page of our site.
