1996 Honda NSR250 MC28

Located in Fort Pierce, Florida is a titled 1996 Honda NSR250 MC28 with only 1,099mi, but is in need of some attention. The sellers description reads:

Up for bid is a 1996 REPSOL NSR 250, Never sold in the US. This is a factory reproduction of the REPSOL GP race bike. Built in very low numbers. This bike has a clear Florida title.But i would check your own state laws as in registering it before you bid. This has the one sided swing-arm and the Credit card ignition key that whould make it a great collectible. aftermarket plastic. This bike cranks rite up and runs but has issues with the PGM that controls the power-valves and WILL need to repaired before it will Run as it Properly.

The last sentence of that quote is the most important. The seller doesn't delve too much into what the issue is, only saying that a race mechanic told him the PGM-IV card was bad. There have been sellers in the past that have advertised the cards for sale but most have been the original, restricted, cards. Also mentioned is that the bike has aftermarket plastics (eBay plastics?), so it could be a SP or a retrofitted R/SE. The running issue could be an easy fix or become very expensive because of the PGM-IV card. With that in mind, the bike is currently at $3,200 with just over 4.5 days left and the reserve not met--definitely a bike for someone with some resources. See the eBay ad here.

2004 Honda CB50R

Located in Sterling, Colorado is a very cool and very rare 2004 Honda CB50R.  Honda sold these as collectors items to remember their small displacement race bikes of the sixties; unfortunately, they also weren't street legal.  This example shows zero miles with the only known defect to be a moderately sized scratch on the front fender.  This bike would make a very cool pit bike, mini track bike, or piece of garage art.  This little bike is probably a blast to ring out on a small track.  Kelly Blue Book puts these bikes at $3120, but, let's see what the market decides--shame on the scratch.  See the eBay ad here

EDIT: Did not meet reserve at $1,852.09 on 06/19/09.


Now available in Lexington, Kentucky is another zero mile CB50R showroom new, with no defects.  See the eBay ad here.

2008 Honda CBR125R (3)

Located in Fargo, North Dakota is your choice of three 2008 Honda CBR125Rs.  Located at a dealership, the seller claims to have three CBR125Rs that are able to be registered in the U.S.  I have no idea how they were able to import, and then once sold, register three bikes but that is what they say they can do.  I would obviously confirm that these bikes can be legally registered before purchasing--and aren't in the same boat as the 2009 Aprilia RS125s.  If these bikes are somehow U.S. street legal it would be a very cool, brand new bike, for only $2999--less money than a Ninja 250.  Supposedly the fastest 125 in production and with factory equipped with fuel injection, these 125s are quite trick.  See the eBay ad here

1995 Honda RVF400R NC35

On a tip from Victor, we have a 1995 Honda RVF400 NC35 located in San Diego, California.  This is a California titled and registered example with some cosmetic damage but nothing that would prevent it from being ridden proudly.  If you saw the recently restored example from Florida recently advertised at $9k, this California registered example looks quite good at a reasonable asking price of $6500.  See the Craigslist ad here.

1992 Honda NSR250 MC21

To mark our 100th post, we have available in Cumming, Georgia a very nice example of a 1992 Honda NSR250SP MC21, Rothman's Edition.  This bike has recently (two-hundred miles ago) been gone through with, as the seller states, "New Crank, Seals, Pistons, Rings and all necessary gaskets. Carbs were cleaned and jetted properly."  The seller also states about the bikes originality as: "90% original except: Aftermarket exhaust chambers and tips, HRC reed stuffers, Carbon fiber reeds, HRC Delimiter." and in regards to overall condition, a "...9.5 out of 10."  The one fly in the ointment as always for these bikes is the title, and this one suffers from only having a bill-of-sale.  Selling with only a bill-of-sale, this bike needs someone who, doesn't care, or can get it titled and registered.  In pristine condition it sounds like a great deal at the asking price of $7000, but obviously at that price I'd like to get a title too.  See the Craigslist ad here.

Honda NS250R

Available in Seattle, Washington is the precursor to the NSR250, the NS250R.  From an astute reader, Terry C., we have learned that "This is an NS250R, the precursor to the NSR.  The MVX 250F was the precursor to this bike...The MVX is a V3 with cast iron barrels and the NS 250R is Honda's first V-twin, but is totally different than the NSR engine."  The bike is titled and registered in Washington.  This driver condition rare Honda is, I would say,  priced fairly at $3250. Thank you for the information Terry, greatly appreciated.   See the Craigslist ad here.
