Seattle Homologation SportBike Collection For Sale

A collector and friend of RSBFS is thinning the herd and offering the following fantastic homologation specials for sale {please kneel}:

Get the goods on each bike below:

1992 Ducati 851 For Sale Very Low Miles

1992 Ducati 851 with Less Than 2000 Miles!

Update 8.9.2010: SOLD!

Comments from the seller:

All original -except for the addition of the booming Gi.Co.Moto twin pipes for that wonderful "Sound of Thunder" music from the Desmo V-Twin engine.


1988 Bimota YB6 For Sale Perfect Condition

1988 Bimota YB6

Update 8.9.2010: SOLD!

Comments from the seller:

A beautiful old school collector for the Bimota enthusiasts.

Yamaha 1000cc engine with Keihin flat-slide carbs
(oh....this one will scoot alright!!).

Growls like a mean-ass junk yard dog.


1988 Bimota YB4E.I. For Sale

1988 Bimota YB4E.I.

Comments from the seller:

Take a look at this sexy thing......probably my favorite Bimota of all time. This thing is such a work of art. The 1988 YB4E.I. model released after Bimota took the last ever TT-F1 title in '87.


Graves Yamaha AMA Formula Extreme R7-1 For Sale

Graves Yamaha AMA Formula Extreme R7-1

Update 8.9.2010: SOLD!

Comments from the seller:

Graves Yamaha AMA Formula Extreme R7-1 raced by Damon Buckmaster (AUS). YEC factory kit EVERYTHING from frame to swingarm to bracing to chassis to radiator to engine and every part on it. Adjustable swingarm pivot, steering stem, ride heights, etc.

Stroker 1080cc full-on SuperBike factory engine and every special YEC Kit factory item from the Yamaha WSBK team. 190hp and the best SBK chassis available back when Superbikes were Superbikes (and not warmed-over street bikes). This thing is light and goes like a missile.

The R7-1 was actually BANNED from AMA competition after it laid waste to the Formula Extreme class back in the days before the AMA series scuttled the class because the FX bikes were faster than the 750cc SuperBike Class (headliner) machines.

Have a ton of the press articles on the bike from magazines (and web
magazines) of the day.


{Still kneeling right?}


Yamaha FZR750RR OW01 For Sale

Yamaha FZR750R OW01

Comments from the seller:

Beautiful condition, all original with 2,700 miles. Only 200 of these produced and they're getting harder
and harder to find here in the States.


Honda RC30 VFR750 For Sale

Honda RC30 VFR750R

Update 9.13.2010: SOLD!

Comments from the seller:

Wonderfully clean example with only 2,950 miles on the odometer. All original and unmolested condition.
Has all the manuals and tool kits and everything else it came with from the factory.


Honda RC45 RVF750 For Sale

Honda RC45 RVF750

Update 9.13.2010: SOLD!

Comments from the seller:

Very clean example with 6,975 miles on it. Has the HRC PGM wire modification done to it (more HP)
and has a aftermarket exhaust canister installed for a little more of that V-4 sound.


Bimota Vdue For Sale

Bimota Vdue

Comments from the seller:

Still in all original condition. 360 kilometers. Has the usual Vdue "issues" with the engine fueling -but can be sorted out.
(I've got another bike exactly the same that has been sorted and runs great.) This bike has stayed in original condition
though and has not had any modifications done to it.


So here's my question: How do you choose? This is my favorite era of SportBike and seeing a collection like this is exactly what I'd like to have in my own stable some day. It would be like that corner spot in the Barber Motorsports Museum with all the great ones:

Interested parties better hurry because come Thursday after my $175mil PowerBall lotto ticket hits, I'm just going to buy them all!

If you have questions about the model specifications or history, or just want to chat about the collection, please post a comment below -- the whole RSBFS team is going to keep an eye on this thread and will be happy to answer questions! Qualified buyers, I am acting as a proxy for the seller. Please send your inquires to dan@motoringblogs.com for additional details.

  • If you could pick only one, which would it be?

    I’ve been battling with this fantasy question myself while authoring the post, and I think it would have to be the OW01. I remember seeing a new one at Ron Tonkin in Portland years ago while I was still in high school. I knew it was special as it had the extra R on the bodywork and the twin filler caps on the tank, but learned later how special that encounter actually was when I went to research it. What an opportunity!

    dc

  • How about the radiator on that R7? I wonder how much that thing ran in the kit catalog. I’m not a Honda guy but I’d take that RC30 in a heartbeat. Just a pretty bike.

  • Hmmm… Only one? I’d take either of the RC’s, but would prefer the 45. I know the 45 doesn’t get the respect that the 30 commands, but I just think it looks racier. As for the Bimota’s.. I know Phil is in line for the Chinese Powerball as I type this. Good luck Phil and if you win throw me some of your scraps so I can pick up one of the RC’s.

    I know one guy can’t fully enjoy so many bikes so maybe I could be a little Bike Bitch and help keep all of them top running condition? Of course I’d have to ride them around the block a few times.

  • Asking prices would be helpful.

  • Darmah Bum,

    I understand but I think this is one of those situations where if you have to ask… Not trying to be rude, but the seller would like to keep this information limited to qualified buyers at this time.

    Thank you for your understanding.

    dc

  • What an awesome collection. I wonder how long it is until they’re all sold? I would take the RC 30 followed by the OWO1 & then the RC 45. Someone is going to be very stoked.

  • Last time we posted a large collection, it took about a month to sell most of them. So many people want a crack at these rare birds; they just don’t come up for sale that often!

    dc

  • Really? the old “if you have to ask” comment for the prices. The top bike here is under 30k. They are great bikes don’t get me wrong. I have a little collection and would be interested in the YB6, but come on, we’re not talking Hemi cudas here.

  • I’m going to respectfully disagree on this one. A few of the bikes for sale are the ‘Hemi’s’ of the sport bike world.

  • Bottom line for me is that I feel very fortunate that the seller is listing his bikes here and I’m respecting his wishes to reveal pricing to qualified inquiries only.

    dc

  • Well since sportbikes don’t appeal to the general masses the way cars do 30-40K is the Hemi Cuda convertable just on a smaller scale. In my opinion the RC30 is more like the 250 GTO, Daytona Cobra or dare I say Super Snake of bikes, I love Hemi cars as much as the next guy but they are easy to copy and thousands were available.

  • I think you guys misunderstood me. All I am saying is it is very hard to decide if you want to talk to someone about buying a bike, you would like to know if they are on the same wavelength as you. for example, RC30’s go for the mid 20’s typically. f the seller was looking for 40k there would be no reason bother contacting them and wasting anyone’s time. As for the cuda comment ,I was only trying to say that anyone with a decent job could afford one of these bikes if they were commited. Maybe after the first few sell we could get some prices on the holdouts. By the way, I love this website. I will be listing my NS400r and my ZX750K model on here soon. NS will probably be 7k and the zx about 5500.

  • please contact me about your k1/2 doug@raresportbikesforsale.com Thanks!

  • Terry Jasper I agree with your comments 100%. I mean Bonhams, an auction house, will even list targets so I agree that it’s actually a detriment to the selling party NOT to list asking prices especially on these nouveau types of semi-common motorcycles. Those who have been collecting for more than a day have a propensity to know the true values anyway and where all the very rare bones are buried. To suggest that “if you want to know what the cost is; you probably can’t afford to purchase” is cliché and rather naive. So be it ,,,

  • Hey Darmah Bum, I take it you own a Ducati Darmah. Me too, I have that and a bevel SS and the Darmah is one of my favorite bikes ever.

  • Sweet Terry! A fellow bevelhead. I knew I liked something about you 🙂 Here are a couple of classic bevels for sale.

  • How is the sale going? any luck? I would think the OW01 and the RC45 would be gone first, as they are super sought after and very rarely pop up. i would have said the Vdue, but since another one was just for sale (total coincidence for only 19k, that might have slowed it down.

  • I inquired about one of these bikes and got no reply.

  • It would be excellent if prices or an expected bid range by bike could be provided by the curator, trustee or agent?

    Hard to compare to the available in the market without a starting bid range.

    Thx

  • I think what it comes down too is that most of these bikes are sold to people that are looking for them and know what they want to pay for them. So if u are willing to spend atleast 25k on that RC30 then u should contact the seller but i’m guessing if u want to buy it for 20k then dont contact anyone.
    Someone with a collection like this one knows what they have and will probably sell it for a fair price and wont give anything away. If he was having money issues u could bet there would be a price on everything posted for you to see

  • Hi,

    Really interested in the R7-1, would you kindly email expected price?

  • Hello i am from norway ,and i wonder if there any rc 30 for sale ,and what is the price .
