1993 Moto Guzzi Daytona 1000 – Rare 4 Valve Bike

If you visit George Barber's stunning museum you will be able to see a yellow Moto Guzzi Daytona, that is how special these are, after all there were only 283 produced in 1993.  This bike has a 4 valve head which later became a key part of the MGS-01 and the power it could put out.  It was not until the recent crop of Guzzi's that the 4 valve head again became part of the production bikes.  If you are intrigued by the Guzzi Daytona then this site is a good reference.

The seller has the following to say about this lovely bike:

This 1993 Moto Guzzi Daytona 1000 is a fine original and unrestored example. The original owner kept the bike at his Arizona home where he spent the winters. Thus the very low miles and superb condition. Recently serviced and tuned, the bike is ready to ride ,show or display in your private museum. The very low production numbers for this bike and it's provenance thanks to "Dr. John" makes it an excellent investment opportunity. Steady appreciation!  RIDE YOUR INVESTMENT

GOOGLE 1993-94 Moto Guzzi Daytona 1000 for the history, facts and numbers regarding the linage.
Please ask questions before bidding.
Reserve is fair market value.
Additional pictures upon request.
Transportation and export services available.
Thank you

Link to eBay Auction can be found here so you can start your bidding!

As for price that can be tough.  These bikes though often fetch close to $10k when they come up but finding a recent sale price is difficult and lets face it KBB doesn't work for such a collectable. So if you fancy something that will stand out at your local bike night you should look no further.

1997 Moto Guzzi Daytona RS 1100 In Alabama

A rare Moto Guzzi Daytona RS on eBay!

Bike:  1997 Moto Guzzi Daytona RS

Location:  Foley, Alabama

Mileage:  6,200mi

Price:  $9,000 opening bid with reserve and $13,000 BIN.

The seller states that this bike is museum quality with the majority of the 6,200 miles put on by them.  The bike is cosmetically and mechanically perfect with a recent major service including valve service, fluid flush, and new Michelin Pilot Power's.  The pictures reflect the claims and this bike looks fantastic.  The seller states that the only modifications from stock are a FI re-programming and polished head guards.

The 1997 Daytona RS is a continuation of the 1996 model which featured the 1100cc motor and chassis tweaks compared to the earlier RS'.  This bike has a claimed output of 102bhp with 71lb-ft of torque which results in a top speed of 145mph.  The suspension is comprised of WP suspension with Brembo brakes.

The Daytona--and 1100 Sport--is easily my favorite road going Moto Guzzi.  It may be because I'm younger and these came out in my formative years but, I still find these dead sexy compared to what is usually released from Lombardy.  I imagine the odd V-Twin and shaft drive was never attractive to anyone who wasn't a Moto Guzzi fan already--making it difficult to convert new buyers.  If you think 900SS Ducati's are too prevalent, I'd absolutely consider one of these gorgeous machines.

1981 Suzuki RG500-VI On eBay!

This is a draw dropping RGB500MK6 on eBay!

Bike:  1981 Suzuki RGB500MK6

Location:  Camano Island, Washington

If you're into motorcycles, it doesn't get much more serious than this!  According to the seller, this bike was purchased new from Heron Suzuki in 1981 and run at Daytona & other U.S. National events.  It'd be nice to know more details but, I'm sure you can contact the seller and he could speak of this bike's history for sometime.  This bike has just been fully restored using all OEM parts and comes with an extensive spares package.  This bike has been restored to Heron Suzuki GP colors and looks fantastic.

This bike looks ready to go and hopefully the spares package can make it feasible (22 pistons included!) to run the bike at an event or two through out the year.  Unfortunately, I do not know the market on these big Suzuki's but, the asking price of $50,000USD doesn't sound completely unrealistic based on condition but, I'm sure the history will play into it's value depending on who has ridden it.  If you can provide any insight into historic values of the RG/RGB series, we'd love to hear from you!  See the RGB500 that Doug posted previously that had a $60k B.I.N. here.  See the seller's TZ250A on eBay here, too.  See this RG500 on eBay .

2002 Triumph Daytona 955i Centennial Edition in IL

2002 Triumph Daytona 955i Centennial Edition in IL

Here is something a little different.  1 of 200 made.   The CE edition differs from the standard 955i in several ways:

Aston Green color which is was only availabe on the CE

Some carbon bits including a hugger and tank inlays

Single sided swing arm

Forged steel crankshaft and connecting rods and forged aluminum pistons.  Result is more hp compared to the standard 955i

 

This might be a nice opportunity to pick up a limited edition bike with some nice upgrades at a very reasonable price.  The seller is asking $4700 and the bike is listed on Craigslist.

Rare 1994 Harley Davidson on ebay

1994 VR1000 with only 120 miles is up for grabs on ebay.

Now, before you all go waving your arms and shout: "Harley don't make sport bikes!", please read up on the VR1000 as listed on the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame website.  Or check out another VR1000 listed on here previously.

With that knowledge in hand, I present you a :

The 1994 VR 1000 was the first pure racing motorcycle Harley-Davidson ever built. Every other Harley racer, from 1915 through 1993, had been a modified production machine. The VR was purpose-built from the ground up.

Milwaukee has never been comfortable with the concept of purebred competition machines. Eighty years earlier the founders had 'been dragged mumbling into the racing game, convinced of its necessity only after Indian had captivated the sporting enthusiasts of the 1910s and 1920s.

But once installed in the Milwaukee hierarchy, the racing department proved itself a continuing resource of team spirit and public good will. People rode their motorcycles to the races, and supported their favorite riders and manufacturers.

Harley-Davidson had maintained its support of dirt tack, the traditional American fairgrounds racing, and built a few XR 1000 production-based roadracers. But nothing on Milwaukee's menu suited the demands of Superbike racing in the 1990s. At the upper outposts of "street bike" competition, the track-wise roadsters weigh 375 pounds (170kg) and produce 150 horsepower. Handling and braking factors are tuned to millisecond response margins. All of which is enormously expensive to achieve.

With some money in the bank, Harley decided to build its second eight-valve racer, with an American engine, chassis and brakes. Engineer Steve Scheibe headed the team, and called in experienced help from NASCAR and Indy Car racing. The project took five years and produced a double-overhead-cam, 60-degree V-twin, with 4-valve heads, Weber-USA electronic fuel injection and liquid cooling. Power went by gear to a multi-disc dry clutch and through a 5-speed transmission.

The first bikes used a Penske inverted fork and Wilwood six-piston brake calipers. The road model carries an Ohlins fork with titanium-coated stanchions. The body work is constructed of carbon fiber, and the factory listed the dry weight at 390lb (176.9kg). The production schedule was set for 50 copies of the VR 1000, the price of each listed at $49,490.

The VR first appeared on the racetrack for the Daytona Superbike race in 1994.

There were few illusions about the early chances, and teething problems were anticipated, but the motorcycle handled remarkably well. Top speed was not at the level of frontrunners, though rider Miguel Duhamel turned in good results on some of the tighter circuits. Results for the 1995 season were disappointing, and rider Doug Chandler had difficulty coming to

terms with the machine. National dirt track champion Chris Carr was also on the team and showed a quick learning curve.

Rumors circulated during the offseason that management disputes in Milwaukee cast doubts on the future of the VR 1000. The factions split as they had a half-century before; the economic rationale perceives big-league factory racing as large expense versus small return. The sporting enthusiast segment says racing pays huge dividends in public relations, and puts the company logo on television. And wins hearts and minds.

This is a great example of 1 of the 50 motorcycles built to homoligate the VR-1000 for the AMA race circuit.

Now, I am probably one of the last Harley fans on earth, but I must say the VR1000 is one special Harley that I would not mind having - and I didn't even know that only 50 were made! Any serious collector should have one of these in their collection (0r museum)!
