quote from seller's Craigslist posting:

1998 Suzuki RGV 250 SP
Lucky Strike
5000 Km
Perfect Condition
Washington State Title and Plate
Please, no stupid questions, or anyone other than a serious buyer who is a serious motorcyclist. If you do not know what this is, or how to ride it, I cannot sell it to you.

Pictures attached are the real deal.

$16,000.00 No offers, please.

This bike looks incredible, but the only problem is the asking price. It's $16k! It does have very low miles and a title, but this is an outrageous premium considering the market and other examples of the Lucky Strike replica's that we've posted on this blog.

Honda NSR250 MC18 For Sale

Check out this very low miles (2500!) Honda NSR250 for sale on San Francisco Craigslist for $4800:

Honda MC18 NSR250 For Sale Honda MC18 NSR250 For Sale with low miles Honda MC18 NSR250 For Sale Honda MC18 NSR250 For Sale 2 stroke

quote from seller's Craigslist ad:

Up for sale is a Japanese spec MC18 NSR 250.

Chassis: MC18-111
Bike: NSR 250-3 2stroke
Color: black/silver
Mileage: 4,276km ~ 2,500 miles (ACTUAL)

Bike runs excellent and is a great track bike. Handles like a dream. This mc18 has been known as one of the best in the entire NSR lineup (better than mc21 and mc28). Bike is not registered and is being sold for off-road use purposes. Please see pics.

With no title, this great little bike will be attractive to collectors and track day enthusiasts. As a track day bike, do you pick something like this or a new Aprilia RS125? I sat on the latter this past weekend at the Seattle International Motorcycle Show, it's amazing how beautiful it is in person...

Beautiful and Original 1986 Suzuki GSX-R 750 For Sale

I've posted several original GSX-R's on this site in the past year, but this one is a very early model and looks pristine! Check out this eBayMotors listing for an 86 GSX-R 750 with only 12k miles:

quote from seller's eBayMotors listing:

Here is a blast from the past! This 1 owner GSXR-750 has only 12,720 actual miles! This is an Excellent example of a classic sport bike. Very collectible! Not perfect but close. Runs and rides perfectly. Tires are great, transmission shifts fine! Nothing needed here. Sorry we do NOT have the stock exhaust, seats or blinkers.

The red and black is a really stunning combination and I can't say the last time I saw an 86 this clean and original. And it's not like these are going to become easier to find...

1989 Yamaha FZR 400 For Sale in Vegas

I continue to marvel at how seemingly available the FZR400 is in the U.S. I remember reading about it in motorcycle magazines and how it would've been the ideal first bike for me. But the FZR400 proved difficult to find and I ended up with the much more common FZR600, and while it was a blast, I still wonder about the 400 when these ad's come up.

Check out this 89 FZR400 For Sale on eBayMotors:

quote from seller's eBayMotors listing:

1989 Yamaha FZR-400 collector bike. Original motor, aluminum frame, fully operational, runs very well, exceptional handling. Avon tires. Up to 60 mpg on regular gas.

I used to commute to/from work on this motorcycle. Due to financial hardships, I am forced to sell this motorcycle. I am the third owner, purchased it with approx 9k miles on it in early 2006 in Richmond, VA. Currently has a CA title.

Damages you see are all repairable, a tie-down failed in the moving truck and the bike fell over/slid into the side of the truck. This bike has NEVER BEEN LAID DOWN on the road. Very well cared for, except for this unfortunate incident. Never raced. Needs a bath right now though.

The FZR400 has an aluminum frame compared to the steel frame of the FZR600, which is cheaper and heavier. Many FZR400's were snapped up by club racers and never to be seen on the street again. But apparently there are more out there ready for street duty than I thought!
