Bimota’d Fatigue?  Say It Isn’t So:  1993 Bimota HB3

I know a lot of  RSBFS readers have had their fill of Bimota’s lately.  I’m with you but I couldn’t resist posting this beauty, a 1983 Bimota HB3.  If you are so sick of Bimota’s that this gem doesn’t even excite you;  well you better click on over to the other site that brings you your favorite rare bikes.  Oh, that’s right, there isn’t one!  Joking aside,  I think an early model Bimota powered by a Honda engine fits nicely in the rare motorcycle category.  101 HB3’s were produced and  you are looking at number 25.

 

Simple yet exotic.  The engine is borrowed from the CB1100F which in turn was based on the CB900 lump.  One article summed it up as a smoother running version of the CB1100R’s engine.  Horsepower is in the 115 range.

 

It is simply a good looking bike.

 

What is a post about a Bimota without seeing how they sculpted the rear sets.

 

The details:

ULTRA RARE BIMOTA HB3 ,POWERD BY HONDA 1100F DOUBLE OVERHEAD CAMS 4 VALVES PER CYLINDER ,NUMBER 25 ,RUNS EXCELLENT ,EVERYTHING WORKS ,,HAS BILL OF SALE ,PAINT HAS SMALL CHIPS AND MINOR CRACKS ,OVERALL VERY NICE CONDITION ,WE AT BUYERS EXPENSE CAN SHIP WORLDWIDE ,BIKE HAS 20K ORIGINAL MILES ,NEEDS NOTHING ,THESE EARLY HONDA ENGINED BIMOTAS NEVER COME UP FOR SALE ,DONT MISS THIS BIKE

 

This bike makes a lot of the later model Suzuki powered Bimota’s seem down right common.  No need for a radiator my friends, this baby is air cooled.

 

Front suspension is Forcella Italia and the rear shock is De Carbon.  Those are new names to me.  How about the single piston brake set up on a 1000cc bike?

 

 

Don’t look for a bargain here.  The bike has a BIN of $30,000 to go along with the reserve auction.  Just for fun I looked up the HB3 on Kellybluebook.com.  They have it listed as a 1985 model and, sit down for this,  have it valued at $2,750!  Nothing like having your finger on the pulse of the motorcycle market.  If you want your email returned, I would offer something above $2,750 to the seller!

 

Here is the auction.
