Last Wild Stallion: 0-mile 2003 Aprilia RS250GP-1

The 2003 Aprilia RS250GP-1 represents the absolute pinnacle of two-stroke technology and the final gasp of the format's street-legal heyday. Quite simply, these are the most advanced mass-produced street two strokes that ever roamed the Earth. Since they were never sold in this country officially, finding a decent one is a feat.

2003 Aprilia RS250GP-1 for sale on eBay

But this 2003 Aprilia RS250GP-1 doubles down on its rarity by having never covered a single kilometer. Down to the whiskers on the tires, it is perfect and all original. It was imported from Australia with all the dealer and compliance paperwork, but is being sold in California, where ever getting it plated is a distant fantasy.

From the eBay listing:

Once in a lifetime opportunity to buy an Aprilia RS250 GP-1 with 0 miles! You now have the chance to own the final and most advanced release of the Aprilia RS250, the final version of the RS 250 GP-1 replica motorcycle. This bike is sporting official Colin Edwards and Nori Haga team decals, the colors and graphics add to the bike that represents GP 250cc class racing. This is a collector's motorcycle.

The look of the 2003 RS250 is dominated by its wrap-around fairing, designed and tested in a wind tunnel. The front mudguard blends perfectly with the fairing, and enhances the Aprilia RS 250's streamlined looks, the characteristic aerodynamic tail completes the Aprilia RS 250's racing image.

The bike was only sold in Europe and Australia. The bike has completed its new vehicle delivery and prep and has 0 miles. The tires are original (complete with tire whiskers) as is every part on this bike. The bike comes with a clear Australian registration and license plate for your collection only. It has never been registered in the USA as it was intended solely for my collection. The bike cannot be registered in California due to smog laws. I have a huge amount of Aprilia dealer promotional material for the bike that would be available to the buyer. It has an Australian compliance plate fitted as well.

Another super rare 2003 Aprilia RS250 sold offline from an eBay listing last month for $11,500 with 10,968 miles. I don't know how many 0 miles Aprilia RS250's are left in the world, but it couldn't be more then a just a few.

In addition, this bike was judged the best European Two-Stroke bike at Motocarrera's famous Two Stroke Extravaganza held in 2005 in Los Angeles, California. This event was the largest gathering of two-stroke vehicles in America when it was held. The bike was also displayed at the famous Quail Lodge Motorcycle Gathering Carmel, California in May 2016.

Contact me with serious inquiries only. I don't need to sell, so I won't accept any low ball offers.

Generally speaking, I am a proponent of riding sport bikes like they have been stolen, more or less regardless of provenance. They were, after all, built to go fast. This little Aprilia strikes a different chord, though. With such untouched splendor, it should be left as is for posterity.

Better Than the Real Thing? 1980 Suzuki XR69 Replica for Sale

We don't normally like to post up bikes that stray too far from stock, but this very useable, purpose-built replica of Suzuki's XR69 seemed too well put together to pass up. And certainly, this isn’t just some GS1000 with an aftermarket fairing slapped into place with some stickers holding it together. It's gorgeous, painstakingly crafted, and fully-prepped to compete in vintage racing classes. In some ways, it's even better than a real XR69. Crash one of those, and you've destroyed a valuable investment, a living historical racing document. Crash this one, and it's just money, and significantly less money than an actual XR69.

The original XR69 was a late 70s/ early 80s four-stroke superbike, a bit like a WSBK and MotoGP hybrid. The engine was obviously based on Suzuki’s production GS1000, but power for the race engine quickly outstripped the ability of the stock platform to handle it, so Suzuki provided frames and suspension parts from their two-stroke GP bikes, and the bikes suddenly handled as well as they went. 1981 saw a switch from a dual shock setup to a Full Floater rear suspension and even better handling. Surprisingly, engines were developed by Pops Yoshimura instead of Suzuki’s in-house racing department, and the 997cc DOHC, 16-valve inline four put 134hp through the GS1000's five speed gearbox. The package was updated with a dry clutch in 1983 and top speed was 170mph, depending on gearing.

This one obviously has some minor differences. It uses a monoshock rear that would more likely have been found on the 1981 model and appears to use 17" wheels at both ends. But the frame looks pretty authentic to my inexpert eye and the overall effect is very impressive.

From the original eBay listing: 1980 Suzuki XR69 Replica for Sale

For Sale: Suzuki XR69 - A replica of the factory Yoshimura 1980 Suzuki XR69 raced for endurance racing in Europe ridden by Wes Cooley. This bike was built for the sole purpose of racing the International Challenge at Phillip Island in Australia. I have raced this bike last year and is extremely fast and performs like a modern bike. The suspension has been transformed by Dave Moss out of California and is flawless for me.

Pro mod built crank with 493 Katana rods. displacement: 1280cc. 39mm CR Keihin carbs. 31mm titanium intake valves. Stainless steel 27mm exhaust valves... extensive porting, new springs, ti retainers, hard faced cams and rocker arms. $6k in the head. No expense spared in building this engine as well as bike! All work performed by Larry Cook Racing in Portland OR.  Undercut transmission. Billet clutch hub with brand new Barnett clutch plates. Sigma Slipper clutch. Dynatek 2000 ignition with grey coils. Wego A/F gauge. Chromoly outstanding CMR custom built frame out of Canada. Custom 4:2:1 exhaust by Hindle. Brand new Ohlins rear shock with different springs. EBC front rotors and pads with unbelievable stopping power. Able to be started on the end of crank with hand starter. All making 171.5 hp. at the rear wheel with 110 fuel. There is more power to be found with different fuels!!Has tremendous power down low as well.

An extremely comfortable ride as well! Recently completely rebuilt because of top end oiling issue with new sleeves and custom pistons and tested at Utah. Perfect and Ready to go for Phillip Island with Dunlop newer slicks (1 practice session and 1 break-in session on Dyno) For all you professionals wanting to race a bike for Team USA at Phillip Island 2019 this is the one that will get you in the pointy end of the race.

What's this really worth? Well, it obviously has very minimal historic value, not being an actual historic racing motorcycle. But it is a fully-built racing machine built to compete on the vintage circuit and that $26,000 asking price seems pretty fair, considering the parts and labor that have gone into this one. The market for a replica historic racing motorcycle may be small, but this one will hopefully find the right buyer.

Dusty deal? 1982 Ducati MHR900

Collectable motorcycles - especially those from the late 1970s through 1980s - are on the rise. Values have been notching up to the point where many of us can remember when "...you could buy one for (insert paltry sum here)..." This is true of practically any desirable bike in recent memory; for every bike there is a bubble developing. This certainly holds for memorable Ducati models - on the ropes in the late 70s & early 80s, Ducati fought back with a replica model dripping with nostalgia. Hopelessly outgunned by the technology of the Japanese, the 1982 Ducati Mike Hailwood Replica recalled a more successful time for the Bologna factory (specifically, the Isle of Man TT win in '78), and traded outright performance for repli-racer glorly. Today these are 5 figure collector models with a strong following.

1982 Ducati MHR900 for sale on eBay

Essentially an offshoot of the 900 Super Sport of the day, the air-cooled twin utilized a bevel drive to actuate the two-valve desmo heads. Claimed power was a reasonable 64 HP, which was decent in the day. Today this is a laughable sum achievable by entry level cycles, but there is nothing that can compete with the onslaught of time and tech. The pros of power delivery included usable torque throughout the rev range, and a very narrow profile. This was capitalized by the straight section trellis frame, enabling confident handling and impressive lean angles. Improved Marzocchi suspension and upgraded brakes elevated the original MHR from the standard SS. Additional chassi details included magnesium wheels and a model specific fuel tank feeding 40mm Dell'Ortos. Bespoke Conti mufflers completed the visual effect.

By 1982, the differences between the 900SS and the MHR shrunk down to all but bodywork and graphics. Magnesium wheels were replaced by more durable aluminum units. The model-specific gas tank survived, as did the larger carbs. But the real difference between the standard SS and the MHR was the bodywork; a large flowing fairing, tight talk section and new side panels all emblazoned with the star power of Mike Hailwood. Depending upon sources, an estimated 7,000 MHRs were built between 1979 and early 1986. Cagiva's takeover of Ducati in 1985 spelled the end of the bevel twin and the MHR model line.

From the seller:
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..

Ducati specs vary greatly within a given model year - partly due to the relaxed attitude of the Italian manufacturer during this time frame, and partly due to the initial destination of the bike in question. For example, US-based bikes came devoid of the Conti pipes due to noise regs (thank you, Mr. EPA). Thus is it not uncommon to find some variances in bikes built in the same year - making collecting a bit more of a challenge. What is stock and original can change from region to region.

This particular seller has committed every sin that RSBFS preaches against when it comes to the advert: Pictures are few and poor, and show a bike that could use a bit of cleaning. Instead of telling us that it "...cleans up extremely well..." it would be of great help to show us - by cleaning it up and *then* taking pictures. Nobody knows what the fiberglass looks like, the condition of the paintwork, etc. It also doesn't help to see that this is not a running bike - and may not be complete. I won't even ask why the rear cylinder is missing when the stated issue was a bearing in the tranny (maybe a bevel expert can help us out there). These are all very important items considering the starting bid opens at a cool $22k USD. Now a clean MHR is will definitely top $20k in today's collector market, but this one feels a bit closer to basket case than concours. I'm not sure the rarity of the model warrants a piecemeal example at this price, and thus far the internet agrees with me at zero bids. Check it out here and share your thoughts. Good luck!!

Catalonian – 2003 Derbi GPR50 Malossi

The sight of any Derbi will bring a twinkle to the eye of the Spanish nationals among you, but this very racy Malossi replica, with title, gets these folks thinking rather impractical thoughts.  An historic Spanish company, Derbi was founded in 1922 near Barcelona, and made bicycles until 1950, then moved into motorcycles.  Concentrating on the smaller bikes, they also raced, winning Grand Prix championships in the 50, 80 and 125cc categories.

2003 Derbi GPR50 Malossi for sale on eBay

20160413 2003 derbi gpr50 malossi right

Doing a very passable impression of a larger machine, the GPR50 does it with a single cylinder and just 9 hp.  The 50 cc's are fed by a 14mm Dell'Orto carburetor, and power is transferred by a 6-speed transmission.  Suspension is modern with 35mm upside-down forks and rear monoshock.  Brakes are single disks, 260mm front and 220mm rear.  Unlike most 50's the Malossi is rideable by a 170 lb. adult, helped by the 17 inch wheels.  The full bodywork has a biposto seat and great graphics package.

20160413 2003 derbi gpr50 malossi front

This GPR50 looks super in red with checkerboard and shows just about 600 miles.  The owner is a collector and seems very knowledgeable - from the eBay auction:

You are bidding on a rare Derbi GPR 50 Malossi Replica with only 592 miles on the odometer. The Derbi 50 GPR 50 was a joint effort between Cagiva and Derbi with Cagiva designing the frame and Derbi providing the high revving two stroke engine.

Below is a list of key aspects of the Derbi GPR 50:

1) It has a clear Colorado title with all the original paperwork. The Derbi is located in Denver, CO.

2) I purchased the motorcycle from the original owner to add to my collection. Unfortunately, I have unexpectedly bought two additional motorcycles and I am now out of room and one motorcycle has to go and the Derbi drew the short straw.

2) The Derbi literally looks like it just came from the dealer's show room floor. It has always been properly stored in a heated garage its entire existence and maintenance has been performed based on time and not mileage. The battery is always on a trickle charger and is in perfect working condition.

3) The Derbi runs perfectly and absolutely everything works.

4) The original owner put two very small scratches on the bottom of the lower fairing as he was unloading the motorcycle from his truck. The scratches are covered up by a decal.

5) Despite its small 50cc two stroke engine, the 6 speed transmission will easily propel the Derbi to well over 60 MPH.

20160413 2003 derbi gpr50 malossi dash

Named for Malossi S.P.A., which makes racing and tuning parts for small bikes and scooters, the GPR  could be fitted out with engine and suspension to keep up with traffic on the freeway rather than just around town, with the known risk of shortening the life span.  Derbi survives today, having been purchased by Piaggio in 2001, and their line of smaller bikes now includes enduro and hypermotard bikes.  Since none are available here, the Derbi will continue to be a specialty, in this case an almost perfect and street legal rarity...

Feeling Foggy are ya? – 1999 Ducati 996S

1999 Ducati 996S Foggy Rep on eBay

996S_rightside

I'm going to level with you RSBFS readers... this one breaks my heart.  You see, it was for sale a mere 10 miles from me for just $4,500!  After 4 hours of text begging with the wife, I finally convinced her that this bike was a sound investment and we should take money out of savings so I could buy it.  I called and the guy said "Sorry, sold it 10 minutes ago."  My dream was crushed.  I have a feeling that I'll be crying myself to sleep when it finally sells.

OK, on to the bike itself!  The Ducati 996 was an evolutionary step forward from the legendary 916.  It retained all of the beautiful style of the original 916 but got a bump in power from an increase in displacement, two injectors per cylinder and a redesigned airbox.  This particular one has had some additional changes including the 5 spoke Marchesini wheels, Termi exhaust as well as an SPS carbon fiber airbox. 

996S_front

The seller has some maintenance information and details about the modifications that you can read that in the eBay listing here: 1999 Ducati 996S on eBay

The engine was rebuilt in 2002 under factory warranty (I have receipts for proof) by Gold Coast motorsports in New York at a cost of $5900.
At the time the bike has 10k miles. I do not know the maintenance history after this point. I cannot say if the bike was serviced or not after that point.
I can say the bike is clean, drips no oil, doesn't smoke and it runs fantastic. Obviously is sounds great with the Termi slip ons.

This one is badged #20 of around 200 996S's imported in 1999 ( the tailcone has a 996SPS Fogarty decal ). No shortage of confusion about the Fogarty "Foggy" replicas unfortunately, most information indicates that the 996 Foggy replicas were a UK-only deal ( to homologate the 996 engine ). Readily available replica decal kits didn't help matters. Perhaps a dealer-applied kit ? The U.S. received a Foggy tribute Monster in 2001.

Even Better Than the Real Thing? Yamaha YZR500 GP Replica

Update 12.31.2014: We first saw this GP replica in July when it failed to get any action with an opening bid of $26k. It's back on eBay now with a buy-it-now of $24,500. Happy New Year everyone! -dc

This Yamaha YZR500 GP Replica is the rarest of the rare, a one-of-a-kind opportunity to buy a one-of-a-kind motorcycle. Meant to recreate Yamaha’s iconic year 2000 OWK6 racing machine in the classic Marlboro livery, this bike may not be the original article, but is a hugely impressive machine in terms of the enthusiasm and money invested. Powered by a tuned 500cc V4 two-stroke engine and suspended by Yamaha R6 bits, with an authentic replica frame and bodywork, this might be the closest you’ll ever get to riding an actual GP machine.

2000 Yamaha YZR500 Replica L Front

I am no expert on these bikes, so I’d love to see the peanut gallery weigh in as to the accuracy of this replica. I’ve been next to full-on WSB and Moto GP motorcycles and it’s always interesting to me how they still basically look like motorcycles. Racing cars, especially Formula 1 machines, really look nothing like actual cars, aside from the four round rubber bits. But racing motorcycles? It’s the details that really impress, since they have the same basic silhouette as their road-going counterparts, but chock-full of amazing details.

2000 Yamaha YZR500 Replica L Side Engine

From the original eBay listing: 2000 Yamaha YZR500 GP Replica for Sale

A replica of the legendary Yamaha YZR500 from year 2000. Based on a chassi handbuilt in aluminium by Mick Costin "Costin motorcycle enginering" Sydney Australia. An exact replica but made to accept the Yamaha RD500LC 2 stroke v4 engine. Also rear sets and suspension linkages comes from Mick. This one has a 1985 1GE engine rebuilt with new bearings, oil seals, clutch, pistons, and it is tuned "TSI mods" done by Orluff racing in sweden. 1 mm overbore. Samco silicon hoses for the modified Yamaha R6 radiator, Jim lomas custom made exhausts in stainless steel with carbon silencers. New Mikuni TM28 flatslide carburettors with new K&N Filters. The bike was run in a dyno bench in may 2014 and has 99 hp on the rear wheel. Forks, triple clamps, swingarm, rims and rear brakes comes from a 2006 Yamaha R6. Rear shock and front fender in carbon comes from a Yamaha TZ250, PVM radial front brake master cylinder, goodridge steel brake hoses to tociko 4 pot calipers. Galfer wave brake discs front and rear, new galfer brake pads, Fuel tank is a heavy modified unit from a VFR400 nc30 with a Pingel dual outlet fuel tap. Fairings are copys in glasfiber made by Motoforza from a 2000 YZR500 painted in Marlboro red. Standard RD 500 tacho and temp gauge, New Regina 520 chain and Afam alu sprockets, Only scrubbed in Michelin power supersport tires, The bike has only been ridden twice since it was built. I have many more pictures taken from building this bike that i will send to seriosly intrested buyer.

2000 Yamaha YZR500 Replica R Rear

I’m seriously impressed with the dedication and money that went into creating this motorcycle, but I’m not actually sure what you’d do with this thing after you buy it: it’s not the genuine article, so it’s a tough call for collectors, and it’s very, very pricey for a track day or vintage racing junky. On the plus side: you can actually ride it, without worrying you'll crash a priceless and historic racebike.

Or maybe, if you live in a more permissive state, it can, as the seller mentions, be registered for road use… How hilarious would that be? Suction cup a little projector-beam headlamp and a bicycle taillight, a pair of LED turn signals… I’d read recently that Britain actually has a special “track bike” MOT that allows limited use of track day bikes lacking the usually required road equipment to get to and from the racecourse during daylight hours.

2000 Yamaha YZR500 Replica R Side Engine

It’s certainly a very nice curiosity, and one I hope finds the right buyer. At $27,000 with the Reserve Not Met, that’s going to be a tall order. Please also note that the bike is currently in Sweden, if you didn't notice the non-USA license plates on the cars in the background of the photographs. Regardless, there’s very little time left on this auction, so move quickly if you want to get your hands on this one-of-a-kind motorcycle!
