Honest and Original: 1994 Yamaha YZF 750 R

Built in the days when World Superbike and AMA Superbike still controlled huge fanbases, and names like Duhamel, Russell, Stevens, Polen and Chandler lined American road racing grids, the 1994 Yamaha YZF750R sought to bring some of the sound and fury to the streets.

The bad news for Yamaha, of course, was that they found little success in either championship when compared to their rivals, settling instead for a smattering of wins at the Suzuka 8-hour during the YZF's production run. The exception was 1991, when Thomas Stevens snagged the AMA championship aboard an OW-01.

This YZF isn't exactly low mileage, but it does not appear to have been abused, and has clean, original fairings, albeit with some scratches and cracking. It comes with one OEM replacement side panel, and is wearing new tires and brake pads after a recent service. With 120 or so horses in a 500-lb frame, the bike should acquit itself well even today.

From the listing:

Yamahas Street legal Full on Race bike of the era, Won World Super Bike Races and more.

Many said this made Yamaha's old OWO1's factory racers seem Slow and Heavy.

Bought from the original owner this bike is in Really Nice Original condition, 23500 miles and just serviced from being in in storage. Oil changed, New tires, EBC rotors and pads, Just dyno tuned by Fox Motor Sports, Grand Rapids, MI.

Bike Starts, Runs, Shifts and Clutches as it should. Fun to ride pulls good up to redline.

This bike has scratches, small dents, chips and cracks in the fiberglass panels, I have located one NOS left side panel (have not changed, the original is very nice, can see new one in the pictures.

Granddaddy’s Repli-Racer: Clean 1986 Suzuki GSX-R 750

The values the first Suzuki GSX-Rs have begun their inevitable climb into the stratosphere, but it is still possible to pick one up for less-than-stupid money. They are rare and sought-after in any condition, so you cannot expect to pay Craigslist-bargain prices for them, but they're attainable.

1986 Suzuki GSX-R 750 for sale on eBay

And you want one. The boxy. tri-colored fairing could only have come from a specific era in an especially loony decade. Before the smoothed-over soapbar fairings of the Honda CBR Hurricane pushed slippery shapes into fashion, Suzuki cut and creased its way to the unique, slab-sided form-over-function fairings we see here.

The bodywork is odd and gawky, but purposeful, so it works. And if the looks don't get you, what's underneath the plastic is ready and willing to try. The bike is built around an alloy perimeter frame that straddles an air- and oil-cooled 750cc inline four.

For its time, the bike was a featherweight technological marvel, sporting anti-dive forks on a bike that barely pushed 400 pounds without fluids.

This is example shows very well, though it sports a few blemishes, and has a smattering of non-original paint. The seller notes a raft of recent maintenance, including a carb cleaning, a valve adjustment and new fork seals.

From the listing:

Original super clean 1986 GSXR750. 49 state bike with clear California title. 13,200 original miles. Cosmetically the bike is extremely clean All original fairings that have been professionally repaired (standard cracks around mirror mounts) and repainted (only the cowl, side panels and lower. The rest are original paint & condition) in factory colors. All original hardware. No dents in tank. A little bubbling of air under tank decal strips on side (see pic) No tears in seat. The engine cosmetically is extremely clean. All original and complete. Good tires. Carbs just rebuilt. Complete service and valve adjustment just done. New fork seals. Has manual adjustable cam chain tensioner. Comes with original one. Runs and rides great.

* Bike is for sale locally so I reserve the right to end auction early

The bike is at $3,500 with a single bid and five days left in the auction. Grab it before the prices soar!

Sold in 24 Hours: Yamaha FZR400RR 3TJ

Eric L. didn't even give us the chance to post this gorgeous Yamaha FZR400RR from RSBFS Premier Sponsor Deftone Cycles before he snapped it up. In keeping with our recent flood of 400s, this aluminum Deltabox'd rocket is destined to be the Yin to Eric's Yamaha FZR750's full-bore Yan.

We're humbled that our website has led Eric to four classic sportbike purchases so far, and it looks like more are in the works.

We'll let Eric explain in detail below, but he and Deftone owner Greg hit it off quickly after Eric went hunting for a Honda NSR250:

... To date I've bought 4 motorcycles from ads on your awesome website. (The four bikes from your website are the Suzuki XN85, Honda VFR400R, Honda CBR250RR and the Yamaha FZR750RU) Your in-depth analysis and unbiased posts help me to clearly understand the motorcycle being presented.

When I purchased the CBR250RR from Greg we immediately struck up a friendship as we both love an appreciate the beauty of these great motorcycles.  I soon learned that Greg had a connection in Japan and I knew then he was the man to help me build my collection of gray market motorcycles.

Recently I relayed to Greg my desire for a Honda NSR250... we discussed my budget along with the criteria and I gave Greg a wish-list of the bikes I was interested in.....after only a few days of looking Greg found me a beautiful Honda NCR250 MC18 II (See attached picture).  The bike is due to ship from Japan in a few months or so and I couldn't be more pleased with the diligence and expert advice that Greg exhibited throughout the process.

On Monday Greg shared with me his new association with Rare Sport Bikes For Sale as a Premier Sponsor.
I thought the presentation on the website was perfect and saw that Greg had several bikes for sale and one that interested me. I contacted Greg immediately and within 10 minutes I bought his Yamaha FZR400RR...which will be the perfect addition to my collection and a companion for my FZR750RU.

I'm so very pleased with everything that Greg has done for me and am looking forward to more moto purchases from him in the future.

Anyone reading this and who has a desire for acquiring beautiful motorcycles should not hesitate contacting Greg at Deftone Cycles.

Please use any part of or all of this email on your website.

Best regards,

Eric L.

Thanks for the props, Eric!

Handcrafted Performance: 2009 Ecosse Iconoclast for Sale

What's that you say? All of your bike-night buddies keep upstaging you with their Superleggeras and Desmosedicis and RC213Vs? Those crippling racebike ergos would leave you in agony the next day anyway... If you want to one-up those crotch-rocket poseurs, and money is no object, look no further than this Ecosse Iconoclast that retailed in 2009 at a cool $80,000. You are very unlikely to run into another one, ever, as only 11 were built to be sold on the 20ltd.com luxury goods website.

With today's sophisticated technology, something "handbuilt" isn't necessarily better or higher performance: more robots mean less human error. But there is undeniable exclusivity and cachet that goes along with something that was built by actual craftspeople. Even if this isn't your style, you can't help but admire the craftsmanship on display. Information is pretty sparse and road tests even rarer, as you might expect with so few built.

Keep in mind that, although that looks like just another Harley-engined custom, the engine is bespoke, an all-aluminum, 45° v-twin with 2000cc with a square 108mm x 108mm bore and stroke. That monster motor puts 135hp and a frankly terrifiying 140 ft-lbs of torque through a Baker six-speed gearbox created specifically for this application. The complete bike is no featherweight, but with a dry weight of 460lbs and with premium Öhlins suspension at the front and rear, the pretentiously-named Iconoclast can get a serious boogie on. Stopping should be no problem either, with a pair of six-piston ISR brakes up front.

From the original eBay listing: 2009 Ecosse Iconoclast for Sale
This is an Ecosse Iconoclast motorcycle that I purchased new several years ago for $80,000. It is a 2 liter twin which is equivelant to 120 cubic inches. Everything, all the parts, are of the highest quality, the attention to detail is without equal.  More information is avaiable at ecossemoto.com and by doing a search on the Internet where there are some magazine articles, etc. The bike is in excellent condition with approximately 1000 miles on it.  I have had other motorcycles during this time but due to healh issues I have not been riding for a while. The Ecosse is located in Southern California, between Los Angeles and Palm Springs. You can see it pretty much any time.
The asking price for this bit of hand-built motoring mayhem? A screaming deal at $34,995. No, an Ecosse Iconoclast is probably not really a sportbike. Sure, the craftsmanship is stunning and the performance is there, but the overall effect is more musclebike than actual road-racer. And it's definitely not subtle, but if you're looking to make a two-wheeled statement regarding both the size of your wallet and your appreciation of hand-built motorcycles and want to go fast while doing it, this is your best option.

WSBK in the USA! July 8 & 9


Next weekend the World Superbike Championship will be coming to the legendary Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. This is your only North American chance to catch the factory Superbikes in action - and what better place than sunny, coastal California! On hand will be the factory riders from Kawasaki, Ducati, Yamaha, Aprilia, Honda, and MV Agusta. There are additional satellite teams riding Kawasaki, Ducati, Yamaha and BMW hardware. This is hardcore racing with two world championship races taking place and should not be missed.

Additionally, the packed calendar will include a double round for the MotoAmerica squad. MotoAmerica Superbikes, Superstock 1000cc, 600cc Supersport and Superstock, and the young rider feeder series MotoAmerica KTM RC Cup will fill out two very solid days of racing. If you're a racing fan, here is your chance to cheer on the Wayne Rainey-guided series that aims to put America back on the motorcycle roadracing map.

RSBFS will be there, ready to hand out gear from our merchandise store. If we see you at the track wearing anything RSBFS, you'll get a gift from us. If YOU see US at the track (in our RSBFS gear, naturally), we'll be sure you get something too. Everybody wins! So pack your coolers and we'll see you at the track!
