1990 Honda RC30 VFR750R #58 For Sale.
Location: Tempe, AZ
Price: $20,000.00 with no reserve
Nothing will brighten your day more than finding a low mileage RC30 while snooping around eBay on a rainy Saturday morning. It looks like this one is going to bring smiles to the faces of other RC30 owners because with a mere 173 views (at time of writing this) there were 16 bids with 9 days and 12 hours left. The smiles will come because this one will help raise the ‘market value threshold’ for the hoarders… er… collectors.
Pretty darned nice if I do say so myself. ‘Clean’ was the first thing that I noticed about this particular machine. Obviously, the owner has taken very good care of #58 and it shows in the high quality photos. They also have disclosed a few ‘imperfections’, but I can only find 1 of them while viewing the photos.
At first read I was a bit surprised at how fast this one jumped up, but then after admiring it several more times my opinion was put in check. Read on and then we can debate it in the RSBFS.com discussion section.

I can certainly appreciate how clean it is and wouldn’t expect much less from a machine of this caliber with such low miles. As I mentioned, this one has really grown on me and I now understand why it has better than average activity on it. I never claimed to be quick so hold the comments please :).
The original tires, original brake pads, toolkit, all the stickers are in place, no modifications, near perfect windscreen and the overall clean condition really make this one special in my mind and no, I didn’t forget about the respray of a few parts. The repair work looks to be excellent and well done and if you can’t live with a few ‘picks’ then check out our featured ad that has a set of brand new OEM RC30 bodywork listed for sale which is simply amazing in itself.
Yes, I imported every picture for your viewing pleasure. I’m going to sit back and watch how this one unfolds, but one thing is for sure- this one will sell and should fit nicely in any collection. Now where is the RSBFS.com ‘WANT’ button?
Interested in placing a bid?
Let me just say that I love my wife and would do anything for her, but it would be a cold day in hell before I let her ride my perfect, collectable machine on a 3,000 mile journey! (psst, don’t tell her I said that)
