Original Equipment – 1993 Honda CBR900RR

Nabbed by another buy-it-now overnight, push “See original listing” to check it out… -Donn

Honda designer Tadao Baba wanted to make the best performing sportbike for 1993, without crossing over the fuzzy GT line.  This Indiana survivor’s owner has nudged it toward the showbike area but has left some options for the next owner.

1993 Honda CBR900RR for sale on eBay

Rather an up-sized supersport, the original CBR900RR reported just under 900cc and 122hp, thanks to 11.0-to-1 compression, and 38mm flat-slide carbs.  The alloy chassis left nothing to chance but carried nothing superfluous, and the 16-inch front wheel weighed less and turned in easier than a seventeen.  Even the conventional forks were chosen because they offered no clear handling advantage, but a bit of a weight savings.  Fairing panels were perforated to allow the wind to slice through the FireBlade, or vice-versa.

Just 11 miles shy of its 23rd thousand, this CBR seems to have had lots of attention but not to every part.  The chassis spars and swingarm are polished, but the windshield stays which should be easy to remove and powdercoat look like heck.  Maybe send the headers out to Jet-Hot and they’ll come back shiny too.  Comments from the eBay auction:

In the iconic red, white, and blue trim, this bike has fantastic presence.  Extremely clean, bright, and shiny.  Recent extensive detail and complete mechanical maintenance.  The frame is polished and there are many aftermarket parts, like the windscreen, seat covers, muffler, turn signals, and left rear set.  Paint, decals, tank and bodywork are perfect other than some light scrapes in the blue part of the right lower fairing.  Starts right up.  Runs very strong.  There is a small amount of front brake oscillation and head shudder/looseness.  Tires are older.

Though not a natural fit for any FIM racing class, the FireBlade was a great meld of sport and road requirements, and had a following in stateside endurance and Formula races.  This example may have been a riding restoration, interrupted but looking like it could easily be put on course.

A Super-er Supersport: 1999 Ducati 996 SPS

In the evolution of Ducati specials, the SPS name tag is one of a bygone era. Supplanted in later years by the “R” model, the “Sport Production Special” was everything a top level Ducati Superbike should be – faster, more powerful, more expensive and more exclusive than any of the more lowly models. Fast and more powerful thanks to an upgraded engine that produces 10+ HP over the non-SPS example (unlike the 916 SPS, the 996 SPS did not include a larger capacity engine), more expensive thanks to upgraded components such as a trick Ohlins rear shock and special 5-spoke Marchesini wheels, and more exclusive due to the price AND the limited number affixed to the headstock.

1999 Ducati 996 SPS for sale on eBay

From the seller:
1999 Ducati 996 sps number 25 in the US. 2500 miles. Amazing bike or collectors item.

The 996 SPS was really the apex of the 916 line at the turn of the century. And while the world was set to party like it was 1999, the party would not last long. The new millennium brought with it the “R” model (for Race) which replaced the SPS, and in only another two years the entire 996 line was supplanted by the 998. Such was the pace of rapid development by Ducati, as they continued to chase WSBK greatness and showroom supremacy. Today the 996 SPS is a highly desired collector bike. The last of the SPS breed, it has everything that is great about the 916 and kicks it up quite a few notches. There were but a limited number of these motorcycles built for the worldwide market, giving an instant aura of something special.

Today’s 996 SPS example does not have a lot of info surrounding it. The seller’s text is rather sparse for such a special machine, and the photos are few. The eBay advert (you can check it out here) has many of the photos in a non-standard orientation, making easy identification difficult. Finally, the auction itself lists the bike primarily as a Ducati Supersport, meaning that you have to dig to determine it is a rare SPS. That hasn’t hurt the run up too badly, however, as there are a few bids and a large number of watchers on this one. Bidding is up to $8,800 at time of writing with reserve still in place. The B.I.N. number is a cool $18k – which is fair money for a SPS but perhaps a bit optimistic from what I see in the photos. What are your thoughts? Good Luck!!

Legend: 1985 Yamaha RZ 350

Every iconic bike tells a story. In the case of the RZ350 – the last of the factory imported two strokes into all 50 U.S. States – the story is one of evolution. The RZ (or RD350LC as it was called in other markets), was an evolutionary beast that began with the RD series of the early 1970s. But the RZ took the parallel twin two stroke concept much further, by adding liquid cooling and a trick exhaust port power valve to widen the power band (YPVS), not to mention the catalytic converters in the pipe trick. This particular bike has a story as well. And far from some adverts we see where the owner says (or knows) nothing about the bike in question, today’s seller has written a ton. I will let him pick up the story.

1985 Yamaha RZ 350 for sale on eBay

From the seller:
Step 1: The purchase
My desire for a top of the line RZ350 started years ago, but in early 2014 one came up for sale 800 miles from home. My wife and I jumped in my truck and arrived in Missoula MT to pouring rain and freezing temps. “perfect bike buying weather”. The seller was short on words, the bike was complete but the wheels were seized from sitting and the buyer all of a sudden “couldnt find the paperwork.” Are you kidding me? After we drove 3 states to come buy it? So i said I’m paying you 300 dollars under asking until you can find the title, long story short, he blocked me and I never heard from him.

More from the seller:
Step 2: Contract the builder
Reach out the best 2 stroke tuner/builder I know at the time. His name is Troy Gessner out of Bellingham, WA. If you’re ever curious, go look at 125GP records, his son John, had all of them. His dad is a 2 stroke genius and was a meticulous engineer type mechanic. Never cuts corners, never says “that should be ok”. While every other GP125 would have some sort of a mechanical or seizure, John and Troy went 2 years with 2 mechanicals, and both were electrical related, not catastrophic mechanicals. At any rate, I reach out and he says tell ya what… You get that RZ, and I’ll do a frame up, cases up build for you, at half what the shops would charge. Deal. He’s recently retired, and excited to work on a 2 stroke bigger than a 125GP Honda. We talk about the best route and without going into politics, WA state is real bugger on VIN/No title issues. So we result to buying a frame and title off of Ebay from AZ. Frame arrives to Bellingham, i take paperwork to DOL, we get title in my name, the DAY we recieve the proper title, clean title, Troy got to work. Please note, we are building a true Spec II Racing version of the RZ350. Spec II oem bodywork, Spec II windscreen, Spec II crankshaft rebuild and weld up, Spec II pipes. THIS IS A NON-MATCHING FRAME/ENGINE. Since this is a fun Spec II Yamaha version, the vin on the frame and the vin on the engine should absolutely not matter. It surely didnt to us. This is an aftermarket build with todays components and goodies almost everything upgraded to be better.

More from the seller:
Step 3: The build.
When I tell you that this was a nut and bolt restoration, I’m not saying it was “kinda taken down and slapped together with new top end and pistons” I”m talking every wear item, every nut bolt seal was ordered through Yamaha. We paid hundreds of dollars to have oem fasteners, nuts bolts springs, seals, all OEM. Here’s the short list. You will recieve with the bike, a build book. See final photo, its 1 page of your build book where Troy outlines every detail from every day he spent working/building the bike.
Entire bike disassembled down to nothing. Everything in the engine was in working order except the cylinder head showed some bad gas pre-detonation wear, so we waited for a month for a perfect OEM Cyl head to pop up on ebay.
Crankshaft sent to Spec II Racing to Gary for rebuild and welding.
After tearing everything down we realized after talking to the painter, the only way to get that specific decal kit to look right, is if its on the bike. Trevor Beckman at FlexiGlass in Vancouver Canada, needed the bike almost like it was going to be done. So the only way around this was to put the bike back together, without the engine and drive the entire bike to him across the border. Troy did just that. The Spec II edition decals were applied to the bike on top of the white paint but underneath the clearcoat, just like it should be. the paint/clear looks like a factory job. After paint was done, Troy went to pick it back up, and carefully disassemble it, and put the bodywork off to the side. Ducati red and bright white. Are those factory colors. Nope. Do they look correct, yup.

All holes in the frame were cleaned and die tapped. The frame recieved new head bearing races in the frame (and bearings upon reassembly)

More from the seller:
The internet says that the rear shock is “not repairable” Troy brought the rear shock to KFG Racing. You may have heard of them, they’re the #1 suspension shop on the westcoast. KFG drilled/tapped the shock, recharged it, and resprung for a 200lb rider. No more saggy bike with worn out 35 year old shock for a 140lb rider. Even better, when you buy the bike, if in 10 years it feels soft. KFG can service it again for you, like a current day sportbike shock. The front forks were torn down by Troy personally and rebuilt with new internals and oil. The calipers were nasty. He tore them down and rebuilt them with new parts and new brake pads. The wheels and calipers were in great shape. The bike only had 15k original miles.

When Troy reassembled the transmission, all the small washers, seals, springs, pins, bearings were replaced. Everything reassembled like a tech would in 1985. Shifts like a new bike.

Engine wise, the engine is stock. No crazy porting. No changes to compression. Troy says “we want this bike to last. We want it to run prime, and behave on the street.” So I agreed to that for sure. We decided to install VFORCE3 reed cages for some added mid-range power. Rebuilt oil and water pump. New bridgestone tires.

Things not restored: seat/seat cover, wheels, calipers, tachometer cluster, bar end mirrors kept.

Amsoil Dominator 2 stroke race oil injector used for break-in. Coolant topped off, Yamalube oil for trans. Bike runs like a dream, pulls hard, shifts hard, sounds great. Has a nice crackle to the pipes 🙂

More from the seller:
Lastly……Step 4: The negative. (small stuff!)
Ready for the bad news? (I told you. No surprises. Thats not how I sell)
Upon getting the bike back together, I went up to Troys house and he says well Darren the bike is back together go ride it. But we do have a ever so slight (a drip an hour) leak near the petcock. so we wipe the drip and go for a ride. Bike is great, I pay troy for his time, and i’m on my way home. I get home unload, go ride it again, I go for a 35ish mile ride, I’m as happy as a clam. All the electrical works, bike pulls, corners, shifts, and brakes, like a bike 20 years, 30 years newer! The gauge cluster still has a small chip out of the lower right side. very minor, see photo. I’m all smiles…. Until the next morning. I head out and the shop has a strong gas smell. I find a grapefruit sized puddle of fuel on the ground. I realize the tank leak is a bigger issue than I first realized. I touch the area up UNDER the bottom of the tank, if you know RZ350’s, they have a section of a half an inch that is LOWER than the petcock. A horrible design as all RZ owners know. I didnt catch it, Troy didnt catch it and VERY sadly, the painter/sander, did not catch it 🙁 Now we have fresh paint, fresh decals from australia, on a tank that needs some sort of a repair. I am no body guy, but i did what I could to try to fix it. i used an exacto knife on the fresh paint up under the tank maybe 1″? (i know, teeth gritting to read that) and I applied a thin line of JB weld. It was a temporary fix that worked for a few months, but it didnt fix it. I rode it 1 more time. I’ve had the bike entered in 2 motorcycle exhibition shows, and it one that gets the looks. And now the embarrassing part. A small dribble lead to the bike being parked and “i’ll deal with it later.” Its 2021. I opened Troy’s book to read off some of the meticulous notes, and it starts off with “15 May, 2014″….. I just shook my head. I have a family now, and I’ve decided to split ways with the bike. So you know the entire story. You’re getting the best of the best, frame up, engine up, suspension up type bike. You’re getting bodywork that is as rare as a white unicorn, a windscreen that is no longer in production, and pipes that are hard to find. BUT you will need to repair the slow leak gas tank. At this point you will need a new battery. The bike has approx 50 miles on it.

The long and short of it is that RZ350s are money these days. Non running junkers are going for what great riders were going for less than a decade ago. Today’s seller spent a lot of time (and money, undoubtedly) to build a very clean example of a neo-RZ – keeping to the original theme, but making some interesting and cool modifications. Clearly the Spec II parts and pieces approach works from a period-correct perspective. The pictures show a bike restored to a very high standard, but the tank leak is definitely unfortunate. So, too, is the damaged bezel given the overall condition of this machine. Which brings us to the asking price of $15k. That is big money, although a completely restored stocker might pull it off. The seller appears to be open to offers, so check out all of the details here and give it some thought. Good Luck!!

Gen. 2 – 1997 Honda CBR900RR FireBlade

Mid-1990’s Honda heard footsteps and made a major update to the CBR900RR, keeping weight in check with a healthy power increase.  Here’s a Tennessee survivor that has been somebody’s baby.

1997 Honda CBR900RR for sale on eBay

One millimeter increase in bore gave the new FireBlade 918cc’s, and a claimed 80 percent new engine resulted in 130 hp.  38mm constant velocity carbs from Keihin remained, and the first four gears moved around a bit ratio-wise.   The chassis kept most dimensions but was made lighter but more rigid, leading to reviews of a solid ride.  Magnesium valve covers and lightweight alternator helped keep the pounds in check.  House forks and monoshock had internal improvements, and a noticeable rise in the bars and seat height gave riders a lighter feel.

This CBR has a light 13,414 miles and shows very well, with only one apparent blemish, maybe a trailering mishap.  Sounds like a comprehensive service was done last year, and it has new Battlaxes and newly cleaned fuel system.  Except for the exhaust, mods are hard to see.  Details from the eBay auction:

A few weeks ago I had new tires put on this bike. (Bridgestone Battlax S21 Hypersport )

Last week this bike went to Honda and had the entire fuel system cleaned including carbs. ($1,200)

I change the oil every other year and last year performed a full tune up including:

– OEM spark plugs
– OEM oil/filter
– OEM coolant
– Motul RFB brake fluid
– Ballistic EVO2 Lithium battery
– OEM choke, clutch, throttle cables

This bike has the many custom accessories including:

– Two Brothers can with fiberglass insulation wrap on the exhaust
– Stage 1 jet kit
– BMC air filter
– Custom undertail
– Galfer steel braided brake lines
– Tinted windscreen
– Valentine One Radar detector wiring with remote screen (wiring and remote screen only – radar detector is being sold with another bike)
– The brake calipers have been powercoated black

I am including the following with the purchase of this bike:

– Honda Shop Manual
– Rear stand (see pics)
– Front stand (see pics)
– Ballistic Battery Charger
– Handle bar strapping harness
– Shoei large helmet
– lots of small powder coated parts

Though its in-between engine meant it wasn’t a racebike equipped for the road, the combination of pretty good power and light weight did the FireBlade well in Formula Xtreme and Formula USA.  And won many media shootouts.  At half the cost ( or much less ) of a new sportbike, this ready-to-ride survivor might again bridge the supersport to superbike classes for a new generation, or one returning to the hobby after a long delay.

National: 2012 MV Agusta 1090RR Brutale America

Let’s just pretend that you’ve got your Super Dave Osborne stunt costume hanging in the closet with no place to go. Or, if you’re from another generation entirely, how about some Evel Knievel stars and stripes on leather? If so, we’ve go the perfect bike for you. Boisterous and bad in a user-friendly sort of way, the Italian-born MV Agusta 1090RR Brutale in rare “America” livery is the ideal accompaniment for those fourth of July rides in full regalia.

2012 MV Agusta 1090RR Brutale America for sale on eBay

The heart of the Brutale 1090RR is the famed MV Agusta radial-valve inline four similar to what is found on the F4 series – but punched out to a larger (1078cc) size. With a sophisticated Weber-Marelli sequential multi-port fuel injection system, the aforementioned 4 valves arranged in a radial manner (thanks to Ferrari F1 team engineering) and a 13.0:1 compression ratio a rider can expect nearly 160 robust horsepower at the ready. Coupled with a chrome-moly trellis style frame and a huge aluminum rear single-sided swingarm, the Brutale strips down the essence of the F4 1000 much like the Ducati Monster stripped down the respective Supersport and Superbike models. With an upright seating position and not much bodywork to speak of, the Brutale is a standard motorcycle on steriods; a powerhouse of style and substance.

From the seller:
This is for a MV Agusta 1090 RR Brutale America.
Original Owner bike is Mint showroom condition
Extremely Rare only 7 brought into USA

Sale comes with a brand new tank to be used with ethanol. The new gas tank is worth $3500.
A GREAT COLLECTOR BIKE Ready to show , put in a collection , or Ride .
No tech specs given , a true MV fan knows.

Everything on bike works as new . NO issues! ORIGINAL TIRES
Mint Condition NO dings dents scratches rust or corrosion .
ORIGINAL DOC ORGANISER PLUS A MV ENGINE CD AND A MV FRAME CD
THE FIRST SERVICE HAS BEEN DONE

Thank you for purchasing a really cool bike!

Say what you will about the livery, but the Captain America coloring book approach really stands out. The Brutale tends to become invisible in the more common black scheme, and even the plain white lacks any great visual panache. But this star-spangled banner approach ensures that you are seen as opposed to simply being heard. Again, match up your very best Evel or Super Dave outfit for maximum effect. As for rarity, there is no denying that for a factory paint job this ranks up there. Has anyone reading this RSBFS post ever seen one in the wild? Unfortunately rarity of color scheme on what is not exactly a hotbed of collector activity does not automagically turn this beautiful Italian supermodel into an RC30 or NR750.

There is scant time available on this auction, and with a Buy It Now just a hair shy of $12k, it remains to be seen if this very cool bike will find a new home. The market has been strong in the first quarter of this year, so it will be worth watching. Check out all of the details here, and Good Luck!!

Rare Ghost: 1987 Suzuki RG400 Walter Wolf

From the wilds of South Carolina comes this tasty little morsel of forbidden fruit. Long regarded as the grayest of the gray market imports, the Suzuki and Yamaha four cylinder two strokes plagued the dreams of US riders with blue smoke and a peculiar sound. These were imported into the United States – usually over the boarder from Canada – and registered for street use. Today most of these pass through the 25 year rule for used motorcycles, but in some states registration continues to be impossible (here’s looking at you, Cali).

1987 Suzuki RG400 Walter Wolf for sale on eBay

While the 250cc Suzuki two strokes made due with a parallel twin, the RG400 and RG500 were full-blown twin-crank, square four affairs. Disc valve was used for induction, and liquid cooling was an accepted feature to help quell the seizing nature of the beast. And while the RG500 was the more potent of the two, the 400cc version was no slouch with 60 HP on tap (stock) and a dry weight below 350 pounds.

From the seller:
1987 Suzuki Rg400 · Driven 4,400miles

1987 SUZUKI RG400 GAMMA ORIGINAL CONDITION WALTER WOLF MODEL
1987 Suzuki RG400 gamma
Only 4400 miles or 7200km, miles new tires, good original condition, everything works good. 4 cylinder 2 stroke moto gp replica that only goes up in value. Bike is all original except for Sugaya exhaust ( excellent sound and performance) and pod air filters with carb jets changed for filters and pipes. original OEM body work is very good. ALSO INCLUDED IS A NEW SET OF WALTER WOLF AFTERMARKET BODY WORK

Walter Wolf was a Canadian businessman, entrepreneur and devoted fan of both motorcycle and automobile racing. His WW livery has adorned race bikes and F1 teams. And the WW variants of the Suzuki RG range are some of the most visually pleasing liveries adorned to these bikes. There are two primary colors – the deep blue/purple and the silver we see here today. Beneath the skin there is really nothing mechanical to distinguish a WW from a standard Gamma. Just bodywork and the WW-specific instrumentation.

These Walter Wolf RG400s are very rare in the States, which tends to draw a premium price. This particular RG shows as good, but appears to be well used. Not sure why the fairing lowers are not mounted, although they do appear as separate in one of the photos. The seller is including an aftermarket set of bodywork, however this is the alternate dark blue scheme. No notes on maintenance or whether the crank seals have been done, but this should be considered a necessary item on a 34 year old two stroke – despite the relatively low mileage. The seller is looking for $15k for this example – that is not out of the ballpark for a Walter Wolf RG, but does represent a pretty big investment for a rider. Check out all of the details here, and Good Luck!!

Nyellow – 2003 Buell Lightning XB9S

A world away from their earlier tube-framed generation, Buell introduced their Lightning XB9S.  Today’s Buell is a 2003 model with just 5,718 miles.

2003 Buell Lightning XB9S for sale on eBay

Buell packed a helping of their design paradigms into the XB9S, starting with the alloy chassis whose spars held 3.8 gallons of fuel, the “tank” housing the airbox.  Harley’s 984cc twin resided under the frame, and delivered 92 hp.  Showa usd forks worked well up front, and the alloy monoshock held the dry sump’s oil supply.  The rim-mounted 375mm front brake theoretically allowed the wheel to be built lighter, reducing unsprung weight.  After slinging the exhaust and rear damper under the engine, not much mass was left to de-centralize.  Sunny day bodywork included short fenders and a body-color fly screen.

As dealers often do, no history is offered for this great-looking Lightning.  The presentation is lightly used and undamaged, and levers have had a nice upgrade.  Summer yellow bodywork is a lighthearted color for such a rumbly streetfighter.

With Harley’s production engineering help, Buell pushed a few over a thousand XB9’s out the door each year,  over its seven year run – with a couple of special editions to boot.  They asked a premium price and Buell’s advanced ideas made it worth the upcharge.  This example doesn’t appear abused or neglected, and doesn’t ask much of a premium for good looking copy.

1/2 Pint Performer – 2000 Cagiva Mito 125

This Mito sold while we were preparing the post, but might be a good warm-up for a Featured Listing next week !  -donn

If all you had was a 3/4 front view from across the street, it would be easy to mistake Cagiva’s Mito for a lovely red 916.  Quite a bit rarer than it’s full-sized inspiration, this 125 has had some serious attention, just a handful of miles, and boasts California reg.

2000 Cagiva Mito for sale on eBay

Introduced in 1989 for the European junior market, Cagiva had great competition success with the Mito, which had 34 hp on tap in the 2000 model year.  Legendary designer Massimo Tamburrini re-styled the bike in 1994, giving it a knife-edge fairing, winged tank and monoposto seat fairing reminiscent of the Ducati superbike.  Sales of the Evo II generation weren’t hurt by the 6-speed transmission, 17-inch Marchesini lookalike wheels, asymmetrical alloy swingarm, and 40mm usd Marzocchi forks.  Even the brakes are adult-sized at 320mm, but just a single front disk.

This collector bought his Mito new and didn’t leave well enough alone, but made some significant upgrades to the powertrain.  Condition is immaculate and shows just over 1,200 miles.  A great explanation of the engine work from the eBay auction-

This 916 Ducati look alike is a Cagiva Mito 125 2-stroke, the same type of motorcycle that Valentino Rossi started his racing career on at a young age. Back in the day they had a 125cc class of highly modified 2 stroke street bikes for upstart racers in Europe. Cagiva was the bike. Cagiva even sold an entire massive hop up race kit to convert these little rockets into race bikes. I was able to obtain many of these upgrades and incorporate them into this bike and maintain its street legal style. First thing I did was update the cylinder. I purchased a Polini 160cc kit. Now the Italian company Polini is famous for their products, but there 160cc Cagiva kit lacked a little quality. I sent the cylinder to England to my old friend Stan Stephens. He stripped and re-plated the cylinder with a more quality ceramic plating using the proper tolerances that Polini seem to lack. He then lightly cleaned up all the porting and milled the head for the larger displacement. I added a larger manifold to install a 34mm Dellorto flat side carburetor with carbon reeds. Stock Carburetor was a 28mm. Installed the Cagiva racing kit pipe along with the fork conversion, racing kit clutch springs, Carbon carrier disk with Titanium bolts, 415 chain conversion, aluminum sprockets, racing wind screen, Steel braided brake lines, Tail Tidy, Carbon Front Fender, and kick starter. This bike came with electric starting but I removed it to save a massive amount of weight of the starter and the big metal gear attached to the flywheel. The race kit comes with a kick start shaft and gear with a removal kick starter. But to sell it I put the electric starter back on, but still have the backup kick starter installed. I then powder coated the rims white from their original ugly colour. Added Michelin pilot tires.

Performance wise the 160 Polini kit didn’t really give it much more top end but a lot more torque. I’ve had it to around 115 mph with maybe a few RPM’s to go. Depends on the gearing, weight of the rider, outside temperature, wind, etc.. It will get up to 100 mph remarkably fast for a bike its size, and corner like you’re on a rail.

This bike only has 2,000 original kilometers or 1,200 miles on it and is 21 years old !  Maybe half of that since all the upgrades. The bodywork, cases and metal look like brand new. Bike never been in harsh weather. Stored in a climate controlled garage in sunny California. All the electrical such as lights, turn signals, horn, work without an issue. Oil injection is still intact. Just put in a new battery and did a fluid flush. Included with the bike is a new Polini 160cc top end, additional gearing and the stock exhaust.

Not many riders can keep the Mito on the boil to make the pace it’s capable of, and less might be inclined to sink the slighty-used-superbike ask into a 125.  But it’s a collector’s joy, a total rarity, impeccably prepared and ready to rock.  If that collector is you, we’d like to hear about it.
