1995 Aprilia RS250 Reggiani Replica

1995 Aprilia RS250 Reggiani Replica with only 2,336 miles on the clock and a starting bid of $5,000 with the reserve still on.

UPDATE: bike sold for $9,000!

The owner is stating that this is not a converted cup bike, but rather a 🙂 🙂 🙂 17 digit VIN # street bike. 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 Okay, so now that the important stuff is out of the way lets move on to my thoughts.

These are probably my favorite RS250's, but are followed very closely by the all silver versions. The day is drawing closer and closer for me to pull the trigger on buying one of these. But, for now I'll just have to watch video's and dream.

This one is chalk full with extra niceties such as new smoke windscreen, new carbon front fender, new brake pads front and rear, new Pro-Tek clipons, new woodcraft rearsets, new Ohlins steering damper, new DID gold -X chain and a set of Jim Lomas stainless steel exhausts with carbon fiber re-packable cans. As it sits it looks like you would just need to add gas/oil and a grin. I can't imagine sitting at a stop light and observing all of the stares while riding a 2 stroke in the states. The average person would have to think "WT* is that guy riding? It sounds like a weed wacker." Of course they'd be saying that and coughing at the same time because they'd be inhaling eau du Toilette 2 stroke parfume.

When these come available and are posted on RSBFS they usually go pretty quick. If you've been lurking, but are like me and haven't pulled the trigger yet this one might push you to do so. It looks to be in very good shape and as mentioned has some tasty upgrades to boot. You can check it out

Here are the pictures:

Quotes from the auction:

If you are looking at this bike you know that this bike with a 17 Digit VIN does not come up for sale very often. This is not a converted cup bike, but is actually a factory 17 digit street bike.

Here is the ultimate cornering machine, very light and one of the last street legal two strokes here in the USA. The bike is in excellent mechanical and cosmetic shape. It has a V-Twin two stroke engine manufactured by Suzuki for Aprilia along with a set of Jim Lomas Stainless steel pipes. The carberator jetting is spot on. All the lighting works and is NYS inspected. The bike was purchased by me in May 2006 and had 1700 miles on the clock. The bike was purchased by me from a well known Aprilia Forum member who is very familiar with these bikes. It now has 2336 miles on it as I have other bikes and have not ridden this bike very much. The reason that I am selling is that I am thinning out the stable. This bike always draws a crowd and you will not see another one like this at any bike night.

And there you have it- Super low miles, well taken care of and complete with go fast stickers.

Cheers!

1994 HONDA CBR 400RR (NC29), MINT !!!!

Wow, and I mean "WOW". Talk about a clean example of one of my favorite little bikes, here it is! I had an exact copy of this bike back in 1998 and absolutely loved it. I don't want to sound like a salesmen but this thing looks dead nuts new and with the price at $5200 it's a steal. Only a handful of gray market 400's in this country exist and once you weed out all the "not so nice" ones you narrow your search dramatically for impeccable ones like this. These bikes are super dependable and use the same type motor as our US imported CB-1 (NC27) but have hotter cams and more compression. Located in So. Cal the owner makes a nice article on Craig's List, I'm proud to post such a great well cared for example. Click here for the jump.

The ad reads:

Hi! I'm selling my GREAT RUNNING, SUPER CLEAN 1994 Honda CBR400RR (aka NC29).

This is a “grey-market” bike imported into the US in 2000. They are very rare in the US and even more so in this condition. Compared to the US versions CBR F2/F3 of the same vintage these bikes were light-years ahead. Features include an aluminum frame and gull swing arm, 14,500 redline (makes you feel like a MotoGP star) folding passenger foot pegs and some actual storage under the seat.

She has 7700 Original Miles, has always been garaged, never raced, adult owned and is in excellent condition! She starts, runs and rides great! Everything works – idles smooth and runs strong. This bike is best suited for carving tight canyon roads and always draws a crowd. I’m constantly asked if it is a current model and love watching people’s jaw drop when I tell them its 15+ years old! I know I’m going to regret selling it but I am looking for something I can do some touring on…

I have the CLEAR California title in hand. Registration is CURRENT and is good until May 2010 – it will cost about $70 to renew the registration in CA – don’t know about other states. These bike are very hard to get registered in the US!!!

Upgrades: (All New parts were installed over the winter and have about 500 miles on them)
• NEW Bridgestone Battlax BT014 Tires
• NEW OEM Rectifier
• NEW AFAM Sprockets & 520 Regina Chain
• NEW Front Brake Pads & SS Brake Lines, Rebuilt MC / Front Calipers
• NEW Battery
• NEW Fluids – Oil & Filter, Radiator Coolant and Brake fluid all flushed over the winter
• Nassert Basic Exhaust
• Coerce Rearsets
• Haynes Manual and Some stock parts / spares will be included
• Carbs were recently removed and cleaned. She is ready for the summer!
• Tank is rust free!

Downgrades:
• Typical Honda pitting on the Fork Lowers. I had planned on removing them and have them refinished but never got around to it…
• Very minor Dent on the right side of the tank. I got a quote from Dent Masters to remove for $100.00 but never got a chance to do. The tank would have to be removed and cleaned with a degreaser before they would work on it. It’s very minor and hardly noticeable (see pics)
• Minor nicks and scratches typical of a 3 or 4 year old bike (certainly not typical on a 15 year old example) The worst is a rub mark on the right side near the passenger seat and some scratches on the front fairing – left side (see pics) I want to disclose as much as possible so there are no surprises but I promise you will not be disappointed!

Warranty: This is a used motorcycle and is sold “as-is” with no warranty expressed written or implied from the seller. The seller will make every reasonable effort to disclose any known defects associated with this vehicle prior to the close of sell. Seller assumes no responsibility for any repairs required. Buyers are encouraged to come inspect the vehicle in person but no test rides unless you have cash and a motorcycle licence.

So, if you've read this far and still haven't bought this bike, you're crazy! Anyone got $5200 for a perfectly good kidney??

Yamaha TZR250 1KT With Low Miles In California

This is a very nice, original, looking TZR250 with less than 1,000 miles on it!  Located in Orange County, California is a Yamaha TZR250.  The seller doesn't state much other than that the bike "1kt low miles almsot perfect condition(sic)".  The seller does include "1KT" which indicates that this is the Japanese domestic version and not the U.K. market bike (2MA).  The bike does look to be in very good condition and completely original as per what the seller is claiming.  The seller makes no mention of a title or registration but, with the asking price of $6,500; I would imagine it is titled/registered.

These early TZR250s are 249cc liquid-cooled, parallel-twin,  tw0-strokes producing 50hp driving around 308lbs!  This is the beginning of the TZR line that was very expensive for a 250 of the time but was race bred from Yamaha's TZ experience.  If you're a collector looking to fill out your Yamaha or two-stroke collection, I wouldn't hesitate to have a look at this one!  See the bike on Craigslist here.

Rare 1998 NSR80 in Las Vegas

Rare 1998 NSR80 in Las Vegas

Like you need another excuse to visit Vegas.  While hanging out in the plush RSBFS offices I came across this nice little NSR80.  Definetly something you don't see everyday and keeping my streak alive of finding little two strokes looking for new homes.  Of course the seller left out the most interesting part: is the bike titled for the street?  I notice it does still have its' turn signals and license plate holder on.  

Take a look:

 

The seller didn't include much in the ad at all except that it's a NSR80 and he is asking $3975.   This one will require some detective work to find out if it is worth that much.  Check out his ad on Craigslist here.

How about a short visual history.  I'll take the Repsol one please:

1984 Yamaha RZV500R In California

Available in California is a RZV500R; the lightweight, domestic market, version of the RZ500.  Located in Salinas, California is a 1984 Yamaha RZV500R with no mileage listed.  This bike has no paperwork and lacks any in depth description other than that it "...is near showroom condition."

The RZV bested the standard RZ with an aluminum frame,  different forks, aluminum clip-ons and some other additional items bringing the weight down to 20lbs under a stock RZ.  However, everything wasn't rosy with the motor also de-tuned for the Japanese market and limited to only 64hp.  The asking price for this example is $9,995: Putting it solidly in the middle of what we've seen for standard RZs.  However, this bike would be one very special two stroke if you could remove the limiter (new exhaust perhaps) and find the title for it, then I'd expect to see the asking price moving with a strong upward trend depending on mileage. See this bike on Craigslist here.
