Slab with Spares: 1987 Suzuki GSX-R 750

As age takes its toll, even bikes that were fairly commonplace are getting rarer and rarer, a fact that is amplified when the many examples of the model in question were victims of racetracks, inexperience or bad hack jobs. The result is that bikes like this 1987 Suzuki GSX-R 750 are becoming more desirable and expensive, even in their most pedestrian guises.

1987 Suzuki GSX-R 750

To be fair, there isn't much that can truly be called "pedestrian" about one of the first bikes in the ongoing repli-racer wars, with around 100 horsepower out of an air/oil cooled inline four pushing about 450 pounds. The lithe perimeter frame, and stout brakes and suspension make for an impressive-if-dated ride.

This third-year Gixxer has covered just over 12,000 miles across three owners, and reportedly was stored in a living room for some of its life. Whatever the case, it has obviously been well cared for by all three people, as it shows just a few small blemishes and wears what appear to be brand-new tires.

The seller notes a list of spare and original parts that will come with the bike, including the stock airbox and exhaust.

From the eBay listing:

PLEASE DO YOUR RESEARCH ON VALUE OF THIS BIKES!!

1987 GSXR 750 in very good original cosmetic and running condition, please see pictures for the condition of the bike. fairings have minor nicks and scratches from normal use, NO Clear Peeling just normal aging. ike is good running strong condition and looks very nice overall.

COMES WITH;
STOCK EXHAUST,
REAR GRAB BAR,
STOCK AIR BOX,
SUZUKI REAR STAND,
PARTS BIKE W/TITLE
AND SOME MISCELLANEOUS PARTS.

I’ve owned various GSXR’s since 1987 so i’m very familiar with these bikes. I’ve had this bike since 2013; it’s been a pleasure to have it as it gets a lot of attention due to it’s condition as it’s a pleasure to ride it. from what I was told I’m the 3rd owner and the bike sat in the 2nd owners libingroom for over 18 years, I have put less than 50 miles on it as I only turn it on periodically, it’s stored covered in cool dry place.

Clean and clear California title. Please ask any and all questions before bidding!

With almost a week to go, the bike has attracted little activity with a $6,500 opening bid. The opening bid is toward the high end of what we have seen other bikes like it sell for, but with values of the limited edition bikes more than doubling this ask, it's not totally unhinged.

Stored indoors: 1985 Honda VF1000R

The 1985 Honda VF1000R answered a lot of prayers when it finally came to the States, after the press and public here had for years praised everything Honda threw a V4 at, but clamored for the serious sportbike Europe got. The VF1000R was the first Honda V4 outside of a full-on racebike to have gear-driven camshafts, and differentiated itself from the slightly less sporty 1000F with full fairings.

1985 Honda VF1000R for sale on eBay

The big motor made well over 100 horsepower, and the bike could nearly hit 150 mph in street trim, even though it weighed north of 600 pounds with a tank of gas on board. A truck by today's standards, the VF1000R at the time was a hard-nosed weapon, at least until the GSXRs debuted the following year.

The seller of this 1985 Honda VF1000R has kept the bike inside, in what looks like the living room, not the garage. The condition looks great from the small pictures, though the bike is not a low-mileage garage queen. The upholstery and bodywork look to be in top condition, and the bike appears to be mostly, if not all, original. Per the seller, the tires are new.

From the eBay listing:

1985 Honda VF1000R. Excellent condition. Runs amazing, everything works, newer tires. This bike is so nice I have it in currently inside my home. Really don't want to sell it. But am thinning my collection to make a move to FL. This is a serious collectors bike. Call with any questions. If you have a 0 rating you must call me before bidding or I will cancel the bid. Serious bidders only please. Shipping is the responsibility of the buyer. Todd 913-927-8806
I will not disclose reserve. So please don't ask.

With a couple days left in the auction, the bidding has been slow, and the bike has not reached its reserve.

Spawn of Sausage Creature: 2014 Ducati 1199 Superleggera

This 2014 Ducati 1199 Superleggera has barely covered its break-in period, and comes complete with a boxful of accessories and two Akrapovic exhaust setups. And, if you're so inclined, the option of a two-year warranty. On a 200-horsepower, 400-pound Scud missile. With a license plate. And turn signals.

2014 Ducati 1199 Superleggera

It is nigh on impossible to avoid cliches when describing the 1199 Superleggera, as writers have been trying to come up with ways to describe ever lighter, ever faster, ever more mind-bending bikes since Harley and Davidson strapped their first thumper to a Safety Bicycle. Weapons analogies seem appropriate, though, as a race bike handled carelessly will have the same effect on you as any of Beelzebub's evilest creations.

Even with three years under its belt, the 1199 is an amazing machine, carrying all but the final, infinitesimally small and expensive tweaks that Ducati's WSBK steeds do. Though it will pass emissions and safely indicate a turn, this bike has very little business on a public road, needing only its first two gears to land you squarely in jail, or turn you into Hunter Thompson's aptly-named creature.

The bike seen here comes from a dealer in California and is, for all intents and purposes new. Judging by the size of the chicken strips on the tires, it has rarely, if ever been ridden in anger. It comes from smack in the middle of the Superleggera's production run, wearing number 294 out of 500 examples.

From the eBay listing:

2014 Ducati 1199 Superleggera RARE SUPERLEGGERA - PERFECT

Extended warranty for 12, 24 or 36 months available at a discounted rate.

WOW! We are proud to have this rare piece of motorcycle history available for sale. The 1199 Superleggera is exactly what its name translates to in English – Super Light. Ducati's performance recipe of lightweight and more power, and designed a machine that creates over 200 horsepower and has a dry weight of just 341.7 lbs., which is the same as Ducati's WSB racer. Ducati created 200 new parts for this most exclusive slice of exotica, including a carbon fiber seat unit, titanium fasteners, a feather-light 700g lithium battery and revised electronics.

Ducati outfitted the 1199 Superleggera with a lighter, tungsten-balanced crankshaft, titanium con rods, and a lighter flywheel. Ducati also used aluminum cylinder liners instead of steel

With these enhancements, the 1199 Superleggera produces more than 200 horsepower. To tame this type of power, Ducati incorporated a host of electronics, including Ducati Wheelie Control (DWC), Ducati Traction Control (DTC) and Engine Brake Control (EBC). These systems are optimized “with new automatic calibration of rear-tire size and final transmission ratio.” Ducati also added a race-derived, handlebar mount to easily adjust the levels of these systems on the track.

Here is the chance to own the rarest motorcycle in the world and still save 1000's.

Stock #: R1697

We offer very attractive long - term financing and leasing on all of our pristine vehicles.

Shipping nationwide and worldwide is available with our trusted transportation partners.

Please contact us if you have any questions about this vehicle. We are looking forward to hear from you.

RARE SUPERLEGGERA IN PERFECT CONDITION / Collectors item / 2nd exhaust included

Extended warranty for 12, 24, 36 or 48 months available at a discounted rate.

The $45,890 Buy-It-Now price for this brute is closing in on Desmosedici RR territory, though this bike is nearly as rare, just as powerful and arguably more usable than its hand-built and directly GP-derived sibling.

Throwback Thursday: 1974 Norton Commando Fastback

In the mid-20th Century, Norton occupied rarefied standing in motorcycling, making itself legendary among racers in Britain and Europe, taking home Manx TT trophies and trading wins with other big names on the continent and in the Isles. Its big-bore engines and revolutionary vibration-isolating frame designs made the brand wildly popular, cutting edge and fast.

1974 Norton Commando Fastback for sale on eBay

By the 1970s, Britain's notorious knack for corporate mismanagement and reliability woes had hit the company hard, and as it tried to make its Commando - which had debuted in the late '60s with yet another innovative suspension setup - all things to all people, it was being outgunned by Japanese rivals.

The Norton Commando Fastback had helped debut the badge, and by 1974 was essentially just a sportier-looking seat and fender setup for the popular-but-flawed platform.

The 1974 example seen here is in excellent condition, and carries a raft of modifications to the parallel twin, including a displacement bump, big carbs and a high-compression RH7 head from an earlier Commando 750. We dig the era-appropriate copper-bronze paint, the overstuffed seat and simple, purposeful stance.

From the eBay listing:

900 CC.. BALANCED WITH LIGHTER SOLID STEEL FLYWHEEL.. 80MM BORE.. 36 MM MK2 CARBS MATCHED TO A RH7 HEAD.. BIG BORE EXHAUST. CLOSE RATIO GEARBOX WITH QUAIFE SHELL.((( MOSTLY FOR DOWN SHIFTING TO LESSEN GEARBOX STRAIN))) BIKE HAS NO ISSUES.. LOOK INSIDE MUFFLERS TO SEE HOW CLEAN IT RUNS..STARTS WITHIN 2 OR 3 KICKS AND WILL IDLE AT 500 RPM. EVEN WITH BIG CARBS... E MAIL FOR MORE INFO. E MAIL FOR PHONE NUMBER AND WILL CALL BACK IF SERIOUS. OTHERWISE PLEASE DONT WASTE MY TIME

Rarer than Japanese bikes of the same era, albeit a lot more temperamental, the big Norton is a time capsule to the end of the era of British manufacturing might, rendered in the brutal simplicity that made the breed famous.

Nice mods, Freddy Spencer paint: 1990 Honda VFR400R

The Honda NC30's handling leaves little to be desired as it left the factory, but everything can be improved, especially after a long parade of years and technological advances.

1990 Honda VFR400R NC30 for sale on eBay

The current owner of this 1990 Honda VFR400R left well enough alone with the engine, but brought its suspension, brakes and rolling stock into the 21st Century. The most obvious change is a set of USD Showa forks from a builder in the U.K., capped with a set of radial Brembo brakes.

To keep up with advances in tire tech and modern sizing standards, the original 18-inch rear wheel was replaced with a freshly powder-coated 17-inch item. The bike now wears a decent set super sticky of Pirelli Super Corsas.

From the eBay listing:

This is a very nice and very rare (in the U.S.) 1990 Honda VFR 400 R (NC30). It comes with a clean California title and street registration transferable into the new owners name.
The bike has undergone a mild restoration with some very tasty bits of up-grades and equipment mods. The bike runs perfectly, with no know issues.
1. New bodywork painted like Freddie Spencer's G.P. winning bike from that era.
2. Front Showa USD forks and billet Triple trees from Rick Oliver (from the U.K.)
3. Brembo Billet brake calipers (front and rear)
4. G.P. style rear brake caliper hanger.
5. New drop-down style, clip-on handle bars.
6. New chain and sprockets w/520 conversion.
7. Wave rotors front and rear.
8. New brake pads.
9. Freshly powder-coated wheels.
10. New Pirelli Super Corsa tires.
11. New aluminum radiators with blue silicon hases.
12. New turn signals with clear lens.
13. Billet gas cap.
14. All fluids drained flushed and replaced.
15. Recent tune-up including new spark plugs, air-filter, oil-filter, etc..
16. Steel braided brake lines.
17. Rear wheel changed to a 17 inch to accommodate todays better choice in tires.
18. Rear linkage (Dog-bones) changed to correct rear ride height.
(also includes all stock parts that were removed, forks, rear wheel, rotors, etc..)

Can help with shipping, but up to the buyer to make all arrangements.
I reserve the right to end auction early as I have it listed for sale locally also.
call w/questions (650) 322-2211 -joe-

The price of the bike is commensurate with the cost, time and extent of the mods, which pushes it well past the cost of entry for a modern 600, which would still be the faster machine. With this NC30, you for sure will be paying for the panache, rarity and street cred.

Dusty Project: 1982 Ducati 900 Mike Hailwood Replica

This 1982 Ducati 900 MHR has certainly seen better days, but if the seller is to believed, it comes with an interesting international history and has met the family and friends of its iconic namesake.

1982 Ducati 900 MHR for sale on eBay

Let's swing back to the whole "better days" thing right quick before we go much further. The engine appears to be in pieces, though the bottom end is in the frame. Apparently, a noisy gearbox bearing prompted a teardown, but a fly-by-night mechanic seems to have halted progress immediately thereafter. The seller says all the parts are safely stored, but they'll need a thorough inspection before they get stuck back together.

Still, if the layer of dust is indeed just a layer of dust, and the parts have been stored properly, there is no reason to shy too far from this project. It is still pretty far from being a basket case, and in good condition these bikes are truly glorious.

The engine is the 863-cc unit from the contemporary 900SS, in this guise fed by two 40-mm Dellortos. The 1982 bikes were the second iteration of the MHR series, which was born in 1979 to commemorate Hailwood's 1978 win at the Isle of Man TT.

From the eBay listing:

Here is your chance to buy an extremely rare Ducati that simply does not come up for sale very often. I have owned this bike for over 25 years including back in Australia and brought it to the USA over 15 years ago. I never bothered to title it here as it was in my personal Ducati collection and I rode it very rarely, it had a noisy gearbox bearing on 5th gear so I gave it to a friend who was starting his own European bike repair shop and he was going to take his time and replace the bearing and freshen it up a bit...5 years later I had to take it back in the condition you see it here, I have all the parts safely stored in a plastic tote and it is complete, and the engine covers etc have all been polished. This motorcycle was invited to a special event of hailwoods held at daytona speedway where I got to meet nobby Clarke, Pauline and David hailwood and they all signed my tank, sadly those signatures have all faded but there is pics on the internet somewhere of the meeting and then signing my tank, I also got to ride this bike in the procession lap on the banked track where I got to open her up..I always swore I would never sell this bike and if I don’t get the money I’m asking I doubt I will.this is a matching numbers bike.. I have taken pics of the bike before I cleaned it...it has been in my air conditioned warehouse for the last 10years and will need a good going over, new Tyres etc...cleans up extremely well..

With a $30,000 starting bid, this machine demands the attention of a well-heeled and very dedicated collector, but should be worth a thought if the sale price stays fairly close to that mark. Let us know in the comments if you think we're taking crazy pills.
