California Beauty: 1990 HONDA RC30


This post is in our archives. Links in this post have been updated to point to similar bikes available to bid on eBay.

For Sale: 1990 HONDA RC30 VFR750R

Collectors rejoice! Another example of one of – if not THE – most coveted motorcycles on the pages of RSBFS has just hit the open market. For those with the wherewithall (i.e. large piles of cash) to make something like this happen, read on! For the rest of us, read on and drool with great jealousy! We seem to be in a season of glut for these fabulous machines lately, but I don’t anticipte hearing any complaints! So without further ado and without the usual banter, behold the gilded chariot:

From the seller:
For sale is my RC30, Please look at the pictures and you will see this bike is in extremely Good condition, the tank, rear seat cowling, upper fairing and front fender have not one Ding or dent, the bottom fairing has a couple blister bubbles from the heat of the engine, those Of you that know RC30’s know this is an issue with every RC ever made, other than that it runs Perfect, I recently had Jim Grainger clean and tune my carbs in Los Angeles. About 3 months ago. Oil was changed with Mobil 1 synthetic, new tires with maybe 100 miles on them, this bike was stored with the fairing off and stored indoors, the bike wrapped indoors in warm southern California climate.

No paint fading or wear anywhere. I have the tool kit, manual, 2 sets of fork seals (jic) 2 extra fairing screws, original bike brochure, braided front brake lines (never installed) 3 Rc pictures, clock, rc30 collectors pin, magazine, 2 keys, Rothmans racing decals, (never applied) 1 rear new wheel washer . 1 new oil filter and 1 set of agv leather gloves barely used.

If you buy the bike with the buy it now you will get the arai rx7 Freddie Spencer helmet and agv riding jacket size 42, the helmet is $700 alone and has removable interior cushions for washing, and the helmet is close to perfect as the Bike is also. All with only 1025 miles. P.s I have the original rear tire also.

Nice to know that RC30s tend to fall into the hands of fanatical collectors. I’m not sure how much value the original rear tire adds to the package, but I’m sure there is someone out there that wouldn’t consider this a complete deal until all the original parts were together. At least somebody enjoyed 1,025 miles on this homologation special before the collector vibe kicked in. Still, there is no doubt that this is a presentable machine.

Presented in Riverside, California (doesn’t Malcolm Smith have a dealership down in that area?), this RC30 is being offered with an opening bid of $23,000. That will just get the party started. The real noise doesn’t start to happen until you reach the $33k BIN number. Asking prices for these gorgeous machines has gone as stratospheric as their tachometer numbers! Your chance to buy into the big leagues is now: click the link and jump over to the auction. Don’t forget to tell ’em you found it on RSBFS!



  • I’ll never forget the first one I saw in 1990 at a Honda dealership in Ephrata PA. I knew it was special then but could not afford the (gasp) 12,900 dollar price tag! I would have sold my sister for a good price if I had known how collectible they were going to be.

  • In today’s dollar that’s about $25k so not so great an investment. You really should have sold your sister in 1990, invested in microsoft the next day, then bought this bike today with enough left over to buy your sister back.

  • Russ I checked the inflation calculator and it’s about 21,000. Still a piss poor investment as are almost all vehicles IMO

  • rc30 for restoration.i have it in my barn for 19 years frame # is one of 300 imported from japan to usa,is for sale.
