  • That Beemer is hardly broken in at 80k

  • The RC30 is Hislop’s 89 Macau GP bike – I would LOVE to have that one and would consider it if it were already in the US. It’ll sell well enough over there that I don’t see it being worth the hassle/expense of bringing it to this side of the pond. But just in case, does anyone wanna give me $40k for my nice stock RC30 🙂

  • Crazy what these RC30’s are getting up to these days. Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s great but wow are the prices going crazy lately. I had one locked down and the guy backed out after Mecum, really bummed me out as it was a lock but that’s ok as another one came around. OW’s are next, you watch!!

  • Motoman, who was the guy selling the RC30? Just wondering if it was same guy who approached me about a sale. Why’d he back out and what was he offering it for.

  • These RC30 prices have been getting crazy. I’ve got two bone stock RC30’s that are pristine and that Jim Granger has been through thoroughly. Up to date service wise and all fresh oil, plugs, etc, etc. One’s a 3k mile bike and the other is 15k but you wouldn’t be able to distinguish the two. I sold one here on RSBFS a few years back and regretted it. BUT these prices have me thinking. Should I consider selling some of these homologation specials?? Current stable includes an Rc45, gsxr750rk, 1997 916 sps, 888 spo, 998r, d16rr…

  • I’m not one to sling mud but a buddy of mine found him. I’ll say this, he’s in central CA coastal area, leaving his main career to start his own motorbike repair shop. All I can say is that’s a bad start if this is the way he does business! It wasn’t cheap either, it was a super clean with lower miles for $32k and that was asking so I said what the heck. After mecum when I was supposed to drive up and get it, he said deal is dead unless I want to throw in the NSR250 I had for sale… yeah, no thanks! It was only ever ran on race gas of that rings a bell w the one you were offered.

    Kevin, if you don’t need to sell you shouldn’t man. In my opinion, you won’t be hurt hanging onto them! You have some pretty special bikes on that list. If you end up moving any of them…do a “featured ad” on here, I’d definitely be interested in a couple although I have many of those already!

  • Motoman, sounds like you have an insane collection! Mine pales in comparison. I’ve been filling up the stable lately with newer bikes. I go back and forth between old and new but enjoy all of them. The new stuff is great fun to ride but the older stuff holds its value so much better and there is a coolness factor that the newer bikes can’t touch. Incoming Speciale later this week. Wonder if the RC’s can keep up??

    btw, here’s the link to the RC30 I sold on here through a featured ad. Should have never sold it, but luckily I was able to replace it with a lower mileage example. 🙂

  • Thanks Kevin. Yep, I have quite a few, in the process for opening up a place to show them all…details will follow soon for members of the site, just secured a nice building. Beautiful RC30 bud, just checked her out, wish I could of jumped on that one for sure! My new one is literally a 10 mechanically which is great as I like to ride most of my bikes but not super low miles…low enough for me though. I’ve been changing my tact lately, not shooting for zero or super low miles like I used too…I just have to ride them all. Stay in touch brother and look forward to hearing more about your collection one day. (Adam)
