1989 Yamaha FZR400 For Sale!

East Peoria, IL – 10,714mi – $3,549 No Reserve

89YamahaFZR400_2It’s been a while since we have seen an FZR400 here on RSBFS and that makes me sad. I love these bikes and to me they represent what RSBFS is all about. What they represent is a combination of performance, classic sport bike looks, and the rare and exoticness that people like me, and most of you, will drool over.


There is a reason that this bike is still considered one of the best handling bikes… because they are. And how does a 59hp inline-four blasting its way to 14,000rpm sound? Sounds great to me! You get all of Yamaha’s trick goodies of the day including, but not limited to, the EXUP system, widening the power band. All tucked into a lightweight package and covered in classic late-80’s Yamaha graphics.


The particular bike for sale right now looks next to as clean as you could hope for. Aside from some lower fairing issues from the bike being tipped over, it’s hard to spot any outstanding issues. I have seen lots of these that are thrashed and/or converted to track use with a 600cc engine in there.

From the seller:


This is a VERY rare find, an unmolested,never raced, lovingly cared for,garaged, 2 owner, bone stock Yamaha FZR400.

How this one never made it to the track still bewilders us, we have built and raced these bikes since the late 80′s and have a vast amount of spares along with of wealth of info and support to go along with the purchase.

*Full history and All documentation comes with bike*, Purchased new in 1991 for $4300 by an older gent, he started a binder of info and service records that are pictured. Including the original invoice and setup sheet. He sold the bike in the early 2000 to a hot Asian Med. student in Md.

She used the bike to learn how to ride and commute to Med school in Baltimore. In learning how to ride it has fallen over and shows minor scratches on the air intake of the lower fairing. Not crashed or thrown down the road,,,IT FELL OVER. The mileage is accurate and low because she lived in the city close to school.

Now a famous (still hot) Doctor she has no time ride or risk messing up her pretty little surgeon hands.

So thats how we ended up with the bike. There are no stories here it’s all documented and 100%.

It had been sitting for a while so we took care of a Full Service and safety ck, inc.

New Bridgestone tires,EBC brakes,EK chain,plugs,all fluids changed. Carbs were cleaned and rebuilt and a new battery installed. It runs as it should and needs nothing. Except a new owner.

Sold only to a good home! please no kids who are gonna try to put a 190 tire on the back or wack some flush mounts on it.

This is a collector quality piece and will make a great scoot for you or your significant other.

We typically see these bikes in similar condition for sale from about $4,000-$4,500, with the price increasing with lower mileage and more pristine condition. I could easily see this bike pushing the $4.5k mark given its current state. Let’s face it, these bikes are damn cool and they aren’t making anymore ’89 FZR400’s. If you got to have it, you can check out the auction here. But you better act fast as there is only a couple days left.

2007 MV Agusta F4 Senna


Philadelphia, PA – 7,000mi – $17,000 BIN


It should be of no surprise that I bring to you this lovely MV Agusta F4. MV represents the upper range of the high-end and most advanced sport bikes on the market. In the RSBFS employee handbook, we are contractually obligated to bring you bikes that fill such categories as “limited production” and “special editions”. The F4 Senna fills both of these spots as well as being one of the best looking bikes ever.


The Senna edition of the F4 is a tribute to 3-time Forumla1 world champion Aytron Senna. Senna tragically lost his life during an F1 race, but his legacy and his foundation still live on today. This bike is not only a tribute to Senna, but also helped fund his foundation. This F4 was treated to the most advanced MV technology of the time and it’s 1000cc engine making 174hp.


From the seller:

Time to ride again ladies and gentleman, but dont get caught out there with the same bike as 300 other riders. if it’s the sport bike you like, then it gets no better then this.

This is the Ferrari of Motorcycles, on top of that you have here the Senna addition. # 286 of only 300 made.

As long as I have owned this bike I have NOT seen another one.

This bike is in show room condition with nothing wrong. Serviced and maintained by FAST BY FERRACCI It also lives in a climate controlled building and has not seen the rain or the ground.

I am the second owner and at that time the bike had only 3400 miles on it. I have only added 4000. So you can see that this one has been babied.

I can’t begin to tell you how easy this bike handles and makes it way though the sharpest of turns.

I am selling this bike locally and reserve the right to cancel the auction at anytime.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions. I run my own business so please be patient with my response time


The BIN price of $17,000 is right in the ball park for these bikes. Mileage is on the high side for a lot of these types of bikes as people who buy them generally don’t ride them. Hats off to the owner for actually riding this beauty! I looks like maintenance and the care for this bike has been nothing short of complete. You can jump over to the auction here and check it out for yourself!

Rare late special Gixxer: 1994 750 SP (in Germany)

The Suzuki GSX-R 750 was my first Superbike. It was a 1993 water cooled model (W) and I will never ever forget it. It was fast, smoother than a Kawa and nastier than a Honda. It was also very reliable. In those years, the usual R (for Racing) code was often replaced by another: SP (for Sport Production). When it comes to sport bikes,  the GSX-R is one of the most iconic names in the business. The special versions like the GSX-R R limited from 1986, the RK from 89 and the later SP from 1994 are highly desirable bikes.

GSX-R 750 SP_3

This sample here is currently on sale on eBay in Germany. The asking price of 12ooo EUR for a bike with 31.000 km is in my opinion on the high end of the scale. The seller mentions a recent sale in UK for an equivalent model that topped 12.000 pounds which is roughly 14.000 EUR. In addition the bike was recently re-sprayed and there we go…

Anyway, it is still an SP, which means you get a different exhaust and carbs for better breathing, a close ratio 6 speed box with a tall 1st gear, improved chassis, better brakes and lighter engine parts. The SP is still a Special.

GSX-R 750 SP_1

GSX-R 750 SP_2

A few words form the seller :

The bike is an original SP (Sport Production), which was produced only in 1994, in 1000 samples, of which 800 went to Race.

Only 200 on the road in 1994. How many are left, I do not know.
Many differences from the normal GSX-R750, which includes 40mm carbs, 1100 Brakes Many magnesium engine parts. also first speed (135 km / h) + much, much more.

The bike is just invaluable for me and is just more money’s worth, and with the right buyers, many money’s worth. (Imagine … in the UK for £ 16,000, which has been sold)

An investment?
The bike is original to 99% in 2009 and was repainted in the original colors, with new decorations.
Has about 1500km driven side.
New serviced and just cleaned and adjusted carburetor so that it plays only max.

Here are the specs of the 1994 SP versus the ones of the 1993 standard version:

GSX-R 750 SP 1994
Overall Length: 2,095 mm (82.5 in)
Overall Width: 730 mm (28.7 in)
Overall Height: 1,135 mm (44.7 in)

Dry Weight: 198 kg (436 lbs)
Engine type: Water-cooled 749 cc inline-4, DOHC, 16 valves. 118 hp (86.1 kW)/ 11,500 rpm, 78,46 Nm/ 9,500 rpm

GSX-R 750 1993
Overall Length: 2,070 mm (81.5 in)
Overall Width: 730 mm (28.7 in)

Own a Legend: Stock ’87 GSX-R 1100

Location: Hudson, Wisconsin   Mileage: 15,434   Price: $4,750 BIN

Screen Shot 2013-03-06 at 5.11.42 PM

The GSX-R 1100 in almost any iteration will find its way on to RSBFS. Many have varying opinions about which generation is best and certainly some paint schemes worked better than others. I personally like them all. But I also like all things GSX-R. Regardless, the 1100, especially a slabby like this one, is undeniably rare and an important bike in the history of sportbikes.

Screen Shot 2013-03-06 at 5.11.55 PM

Early GSX-R 1100’s like this one had a giant 1100 cc air an oil cooled motor stuffed into a frame developed for its 750 cc little brother. That’s a lot of motor for this particular chassis and could make life interesting for the rider. The engines are considered bullet-proof and have been found to survive in some form or another for many, many years.

Screen Shot 2013-03-06 at 5.12.07 PM

This bike looks stock from the limited photos. It would be nice to get some more close-up shots to get an idea of the condition. It would also be nice to be able to see under the tank protector to get a sense of what the paint is like there.

Screen Shot 2013-03-06 at 5.12.20 PM

Here’s the owner’s description-

This 1987 GSXR 1100 is an 8 out of 10 with 15,484 well maintained miles and is rare in Red and Black color.  Most 1987 GSXRs were sold in the White and Blue racing color combination.

It is completely stock to include exhaust and rare plastic air intakes.  I searched for years to find this bike after owning the same model from 1987-1990.   I bought it about 4 years ago with 13k on the clock and rode it 1000 miles home.  It is extremely reliable and you can ride it anywhere.  I care about quality maintenance, and at 15k miles I had the bike completely serviced at a Suzuki dealership.  The service guys were amazed at how clean and stock this bike is!  Service included: new chain, new spark plugs, new air filters, flushing of front & rear brake systems, flushing of clutch system, transmission, fresh engine oil & oil filter.  I also had the dealer do a complete rebuild of the front forks (fluid/seals) and they operate as new for both compression dampening and rebound.  Every switch and light works to include turn signals.  There are a few minor dings that have touch-up paint.  I’m selling as is, but you will not be disappointed.  If you are a disciminating buyer, you’ll love this bike cosmetically and mechanically.  I’m only selling to raise more cash for property down payment. 

If you choose “Buy it Now” I will deliver your Gixxer for free within 100 miles of Hudson, WI (54016).  Delivering further distances is negotiable after sale.  I will also store it until Spring for free if you want to fly in and ride it home.  Although the tires have low mileage, they are 4 years old.  I will replace them with new tires at the “Buy it Now” price and include a pitbull swingarm stand.

Shipping is the responsibility of the buyer. 

Again, the photos are limited but the seller describes the bike as well maintained and completely stock. That is a rare find indeed for this bike. And for all the collector’s out there, a bone stock early 1100 would be a prize.

So if you are looking, this may be your ticket. Want to make a play? Go place your bid!

Stellar Deal: Gilera Saturno 500 (in Switzerland)

Last year we have posted a few ads of the stunning Gilera Saturno 500. This bikes was born as a child between Japan and Italy (the idea came  form the Japanese Gilera importer). The name Saturno came from the past and in particular from 1949 when the following single cylinder prototype was built:

1949 Gilera Saturno

The modern Saturno 500 is in itself a rare motorbike. This one found in a warm home Switzerland looks like a real deal. With less than 4000 km and  at a price of 4800 $ this is the best sample I came across (too bad I just invested into a 2 stroker for the summer…).



Pictures are scarce but  the bike looks in original conditions and with that mileage I think this is a top deal. The seller includes a new battery, the workshop manual and relative maintenance manual. For a real enthusiast, hurry up by clicking on the link below (fixed price sale form Swiss auction site RICARDO.CH):

Laverda March 6, 2013 posted by

Disco Italiano: 1978 Laverda 1200 Jota America


Marketed on US shores at the height of the disco era, it is hard to imagine Italian engineers and assembly personnel listening to anything other than Pavarotti during the construction of this beast. Still, singing some “Stayin’ Alive” by the Bee Gees might have helped – Laverda would close their doors by the early 1980s (only to be resurrected several times in failed attempts to bring back the magic). Piaggio / Aprilia is the current owner of the brand, but have no interest in manufacturing motorcycles under the Laverda banner.


From the seller:
The Laverda triple was a highly esteemed superbike of the 1970s even if it was rarely seen in the USA. They developed a reputation for speed, handling, and durability on the race track, winning multiple superbike championships in Britain and Europe. They blew minds when in a British magazine test it went 140MPH, making it the fastest production bike of the era. Look it up in a Guinness Book of Records from the late ’70s.

This particular Laverda, a 1200 Jota America with a build date of November 1977, is a fine rider and attracts attention wherever it goes. I have owned it since 2009, and I enjoy it on club rides and quick trips over the “Dragon”. It runs very strongly and has been very reliable for me. After I bought it I went over it, checking the valve clearances (OK) , cleaning/tuning the carbs, and fixing a slippy clutch. I replaced the plates and springs and the triplex primary chain for good measure. I checked the compression when the engine was dead cold and found all cylinders within two lbs. of 157psi. I confirmed that the cams were the coveted 4C, but I did not pull the heads to see what pistons were in it. I suspect they are higher than the stock compression.


More from the seller:
I have changed the oil and cleaned the screen several times. I am now running Mobil 1 20w50 motorcycle oil. It is fresh. It has several desirable mods: rear-sets, Jota handlebar, Jota exhaust (I suspect they may be the original ones from England- they are light as a feather with no baffles), modern four-piston Brembo calipers, drilled rotors, braided SS brake lines, SFC fairing, Progressive shocks, the 4C Jota cams, and Moto-Witt ignition. It also has the bum-stop Jota seat, but it has a small tear in it. I have owned five Laverda triples and this one is the fastest. I hate to see this rorty beast go, but my old body finds the riding position too sporty and I just don’t ride it enough to justify keeping it.

It is a fine-looking beast with tons of charisma. I had the exhaust pipes and mufflers re-chromed recently and the oldish paint is still thick and shiny but there are nicks in several places that have been touched up. She makes a very presentable rider – not a show bike. The engine and frame numbers match- it is no. 1697 and is titled as a 1979 model. I just went out to the garage and started her up for the first time since October, when I drained the carbs. She started right away with the distinctive, spine-tingling roar that is unique to these 180-degree triples.

These big triples are bikes from another era. With a classic Italian approach to performance, great looks and terrific sounds, a Laverda makes a statement to the world. It is a great piece of hardware that will not be seen on every corner of your commute, or even at most bike hangouts during spirited weekend rides.


Your chance to own this hot Italian dish is now. Bidders are turning out for this orange beauty, with the current bid up to $6,399 with reserve still in place. I’m really not sure what the value of a Jota is these days, so this will be a great bellweather for these classic bikes in 2013.

600cc Survivor! 1993 Honda CBR600 F2

Boca Raton, FL – 12,500 mi – Currently $2,550


Before the shouts of “These aren’t rare!” and “They made thousands of these!” start, let me say that I don’t necessarily disagree with the latter. However, there is a lot of support and interest in clean survivors from back in the day. Personally, I feel that finding a 20-year-old bike that was never meant to be collectible in stellar condition can be trickier than finding a more expensive bike in the same condition. These were never thought of as something to preserve. They were designed to go fast and lots of them ended up on the ground or modified beyond recognition. Those who wanted one of these when they were new but were too young/broke to afford one are now 20 years older and have more disposable income. That is why the “survivor” represents a key part of the rare sport bike market, much like the 60’s muscle car does in the collectible car market.


On to this minty CBR600F2 for sale. This bike is now 20 years old and has less than 13k miles on the clock, which is roughly 600 miles a year. The bike looks as flawless as can be and the only thing I can call out from the photos is a slight scuff on the exhaust and maybe a tiny amount of surface rust on the exhaust as well. Also, I maybe see some pait chipping on the front forks, but that could just be the lighting in the picture. Other than that, this thing looks like it did back in ’93.


From the seller:

1993 Honda CBR 600 F2 with less than 13,000 miles. Recent tune up, cleaned carburators, changed voltage regulator, battery and both tires. Runs like a dream. 100HP on paper and you can feel it. Second owner since 1994, always garaged.

The description is a little lacking, but the seller has provided some good photos of the bike. Bidding is active and up to $2,550 already. These had 100hp back in the day and were no slouch. That Honda rideability and reliability is probably one of the things that has kept this bike looking good today. Do you feel like owning a classic 600 for less than the price of a new 250cc bike? Then check out the auction here and place your bid!
