6800 Mile Kawasaki GPZ900R Available in Chicago

1984 Kawasaki GPZ900R Ninja 900 For Sale

It took a lot of effort not to title this one Danger Zone or Top Gun but now that it’s out of my system, this has to be one of the cleanest Ninja 900’s I’ve seen in a long time. The seller includes dozens of high quality, close up photos for inspection as well as a very detailed description at the auction listing. Bidding has been steady and is currently showing $5k reserve not met.


1984 Kawasaki Ninja 900 for sale on eBay


excerpt from the seller:

The condition of this machine is highly original and un-restored. The frame and engine numbers are factory correct and original. It is the 900 cc engine. The gearbox is also original to the machine. This Kawasaki is completely original, has never been apart, and has never been modified or wrecked. I believe I am the third owner from new. It is a fantastic original 28 year old machine that deserves to be ridden and preserved.

This machine has been in my collection for some time, is started on a regular basis, and ridden about 200 miles per year. When I purchased the bike, it had been owned by another collector and ridden occasionally. At the start of every riding season, I do a sympathetic re-commission of it by checking all of the major engine, transmission, and braking components for wear and safety. The gas tank was cleaned when I purchased it, and the carburetors were inspected, cleaned, and re-installed and the air filter checked. All fluids are changed, and both front and rear brakes were checked, as new brakes were installed a few seasons ago.

First a Haga replica, now a Bol D’or: 2007 Aprilia RSV 1000

Frequent contributor Marty/dallaslavowner spotted this Aprilia Bol D’Or on ebay and wrote the following:


The bol d’or may be the same mechanically as the standard RSV but it is definitely more eye catching than the standard black RSV of the era. Last one seen on RSBFS was back in April and at the time, Ian wrote “I’ve seen them listed from $12,000 (practically no miles) to $8,500 (a few thousand).” So even though price is above IKBB it seems to be inline given the fact that its one of only 300 produced with this commemorative color scheme. Plus the seller indicates he will listen to offers so perhaps its time to add this one to someones garage…

Haggle for a Haga Part II: 2003 Aprilia RSV1000r Haga Replica #138

Update 11.27.2013: Previously seen this past April, this Haga rep is back on eBay. Auction ends on Thanksgiving though, so get it before Black Friday! Links updated. -dc


As is often the case, no sooner do we find a rare machine that is generally difficult to come by, another comes right along behind it. This feast or famine deal would be amusing if it were not quite so predictable. Of course the upside is that we all get to see another example of a great bike. In this case, you are looking at the doppelganger of the Haga Replica #105 we posted earlier this week.

2003 Aprilia RSV1000R Haga for sale on eBay


This Aprilia, in addition to the Haga Playstation livery and limited number status, includes BST carbon wheels. The stockers are also included in the auction, so as to preserve the value of the complete package. There is some apparent damage to the exhaust can on the the right side, but with only 500 claimed miles I can’t imagine much is wrong with this machine.


From the seller:

Has BST carbon fiber rims mounted est.value 8,000.00 with micheline pilot power rubber. Some extras not many. Have stock rims and tires, never used. all included in price


Whereas the earlier Haga we posted was a BIN affair asking $15,000 OBO, this particular bike is being auctioned off. The opening ask is a reasonable $10,000, with reserve in place. How much do BST wheels add to this deal? Is the lower mileage that enticing? If you’ve been wondering what a Haga Replica is worth these days, click the link and jump over to the auction. We’ll all find out together!

One Owner 1986 Honda VF1000R with just 7500 Miles!

1986 Honda VF1000R for sale

And the hits keep coming! Today a one owner VF1000R in Texas that has reportedly never seen inclement weather, never had a wrenched turned on it, and until recently never had any replacement parts fitted. Needless to say it will need some reconditioning before it will be safe to ride, but even looking through those horrible photos you can tell it’s incredibly clean. Bidding is brisk and already passed reserve at $6300.


1986 Honda VF1000R for sale on eBay

from the seller:

This bike is part of an estate sale. Bought new in 1986 the owner was an older gentleman that would not ride it for long. It has been stored in a climate controlled building for many years. With only 7611 miles it is like new. Never dropped, touched up anywhere or had a wrench on it (except for the first battery replacement last week). The tires as like new and all engine components sparkle like new. The bike should probably have the fuel system serviced prior to starting. We have NOT touched this bike with a wrench. I do believe that should be the second owner’s privilege.

As you can see in the pictures this is truely a remarkable find for the right collector. This bike has NEVER been exposed to weather and has a clear one owner Texas title.

1986 Ducati 750 F1 for sale

This off season we’ve certainly been treated to many low mileage examples to be tempted by. This Ducati 750 F1 has just 1472 miles from new and one owner. It was treated to a full service last year and has some thoughtful upgrades and it sounds like stock bits come with as well. The current bid is $11,500 with reserve not yet met and 6 days to go. How high will this one go or do you think it will be sold offline?


1986 Ducati 750 F1 for sale on eBay

Offering for sale a one owner low mileage example of the Ducati 750 F1 the year is 1986. This bike was originally sold from
Duc Pond Motorsports in Winchester VA. It’s always been kept in ideal garage conditions and used sparingly over the last 27 years. The Ducati 750cc Pantah based engine emerged in the 1980s to much acclaim regarding performance and modern design .


Up grades on the bike include the Brembo gold calipers and an open racing exhaust system.
Included in the sale are the extra Marvic wheels in modern 17″ sizes and an Ohlins shock too. It’s in excellent working order. The shock was recently tested : no leaks or damages and set with correct gas pressure by an Ohlins service center. The Verlicchi alloy swing arm is a nice add on.
The stock center stand and stock front brake calipers along with the stock muffler are all part of the sale . The countershaft sprocket cover is something extra and the engine crankshaft turning tool makes for easier service .

In 2012 this motorcycle was serviced throughout. All valve clearances are spot on. Timing belts are new.
The tires are new Avon Road Runners. The battery of course is new.
The carburators have been cleaned and renewed with new brass and rubber parts including new accelerator pump parts. The pump discharge has been set correctly. The gas tank is clean the fuel lines and petcock valves are new. The hydraulic brake. calipers were cleaned inside re assembled no sticking or odd feeling .The master cylinders were completely field stripped and renewed using new pistons and seals .

2 Owner 1991 Suzuki GSX-R 750 with just 6000 miles!

1991 Suzuki GSX-R 750 For Sale

As the seller notes, in 1991 the GSX-R 750 was one hot ticket and most of the good ones are long gone. This example is advertised as mostly original with the exception of the missing steering damper and signals, aftermarket exhaust, and upgraded pod filters. The pictures provided are very high resolution and reveal a well kept motorcycle. Bidding has stalled near $4500 reserve not met, but alot of eBay bikes are being sold offline so we wish the seller luck and hope they’ll share the result with us.


1991 Suzuki GSX-R 750 for sale on eBay


from the seller:

I am selling my 1991 SUZUKI GSX-R 750. I purchased the bike from the original owner for my collection of GSX-R’S almost 4 years ago. This GSX-R is really in amazing condition and with only 5,920 miles on it. Never been down or abused, been garaged since new and never seen rain. This bike is very close to flawless. There is one very small ding on the right side of the tank, under the U and it’s about 1/4 inch round or the size of a pinky nail, A few light scratches on the right rear fairing from getting on and off the bike, front fender has an area where paint has been rubbed away, and the seat has a few areas that have started to split along the edge… None of these things are really noticeable, I just want to point out any imperfections. When I purchased the bike it had aftermarket turn signals which I removed, Was missing a steering damper which I never replaced since I never intended on really riding the bike, The stock exhaust system was replaced with a Yoshimura system and the stock airbox was replaced with K&N filters. So, no signals, no steering damper, no stock exhaust or airbox with this sale. These GSX-R’S are very rare & hard to find in this condition and mileage. This was the hottest bike to have in its time and for that there are very few left that haven’t been crashed, junked, or just plain ridden to the ground. Especially in blue and white factory team color scheme. I do start the bike and take it for short ride’s once a month or so and it is in great running condition and starts and rides as it should. Don’t miss the opportunity to own this beautiful piece of Suzuki history. I will also include a very rare 4to1 Yoshimura Duplex system for this bike that I purchased off ebay years ago and never got around to installing it on the bike. I had the header pipe and mid pipe refinished at Yoshimura USA. The carbon can does have some surface scratches which can be seen in the pics
