1991 Honda NSR 250SP MC21, but not really-
Location: West Islip, NY
This is an NSR250SP Fresh motor and two, yes two complete sets of body work including tanks.
One set Repsol and one set Rothmans.
Frame and Title are MC-21 and everything else is MC-28
A bunch of extras and a ton of trick parts.
Custom triple tree upper, fork brace, oil injector block off, tyga rear sets, carbon reeds and customer reed stops, reed stuffers, HRC jet kit, steel braided lines, customer front and rear brake resevoirs, , new clutch cable, carbon dry clutch cover, Kiss 1/4 turn throttle, rare magtek wheels, fresh metzlers, tyga expansion chambers and carbon fiber silencers, rear sprockets, light weight tyga meter stay, carbon meter cover, lightweight clip ons, tyga rear section, custom sub-frame, tyga battery box, I have both the keys for this the stock MC28 PGM4 credit card key and the very very difficult to get HRC race card key unleasing the extra power
I also have a parts manual, its in japanese but really helpful.
But that is not wat makes this bike unique, what really makes it unique is it is titled and registered on the real serial number and proper name. NY State title.
this is a bike I have onwed for many years and swore to myself I would never sell it. but never say never, it just doesnt fit in a family life style 🙁
Dont get me wrong this is not a show bike, this is a kickass unique race bike that is street legal. I when you go to shows, trust me everyone looks to see who’s on the dirtbike, wait thats no dirt bike!
So like I said it a 2 stroke and it doesnt stay clean too well.
Its not running right now I put a fresh top end on it and was getting ready to install a new wiriing harness from Tyga premade to accept lights and turn signals with the HRC card.
Wow, I’m not sure where to start-
Lets start with the pictures- Rothmans photo has aluminum colored frame- Repsol has black colored frame. Which is it?
If this is a SP model MC21 it will have adjustable suspenders on the front and rear along with the dry clutch and Magteks; which the seller says it has. The thing worth noting is that if it is a ‘true’ SP it has lost all it’s value because it is now a mixed SP of sorts.
True SP’s, with low mileage, can bring money close to the BIN price of this machine when there is one available- which isn’t very often. I do know where a true Rothamans MC21 that is for sale. If this is the going rate for MC’s any prospective buyer is going to miss out on a few good deals because our prices are going up… and quick! Not knocking this machine, but come on man we need to be realistic.
I understand that a seller can ask whatever price they see fit to ask and it’s up to a buyer to determine ‘what is what’. For me this is a…. You know what? I’m not going to finish that sentence because there’s no reason to. Our viewers know ‘what is what’
Back to the bike- It has plenty to offer the right buyer. The right buyer will be someone who likes to tinker and clean what we 2 stroke guys call ‘Spooge’. That’s right- SPOOGE! It always sounds better when you scream it in disgust because you have to wipe it off- again!
This one has a liberal sprinkling of Tyga dust with the rear sets, pipes, carbon reeds and bodywork. If the Rothmans bodywork is real OEM SP stuff it’s worth a considerable amount, but I’m going to go out on a limb and say that it’s probably not of OEM vintage considering the rest of the bike. A set of any OEM NSR bodywork can bring upwards of $1,000.00 in great shape, but SP bodywork, with the tank…. well, that’s another level all together.
The HRC card that is mentioned kills the lights for track use only. It’s difficult to find one and when you do it needs to be fiddled with to make it play nice with the street functions of the PGM IV. Since all NSR engines are the same, sans the wet or dry clutch, most people prefer to modify the MC21’s and not fool with the PGM IV cards. The cards have plenty of ‘neat’ factor, but have a lot more PITA factor to offer if you lose one, get it wet, step on it etc. PGM III’s are easier to modify and use regular keys for the ignition.
I wish the seller all the luck in the world in selling his beloved NSR for $12,500.00 because that will only increase the value in my 2 little guys.
