Yep, did you see how I snuck that in there? I’ve started a new site just for cafe bikes and conversions for sale. I can’t deny that I’m on the bus and love what they represent. But for the most part, we try to only post original or lightly modified machines on both Rare SportBikes For Sale and Classic SportBikes For Sale. So I figured why not make another site dedicated to these great rides and show off some of the better looking cafe’s and conversions for sale! Here’s a taste of some recent picks:

RSBFS Spring Updates 2011!

First of all, we hope you enjoyed our April Fools fun last week. We had a blast putting it together and I think everyone enjoyed it for the most part. Anyone pick up one of those beauts?

While here in the Pacific Northwest spring has yet to really make an appearance, I know proper riding weather is returning to most of the country as we speak. The guys have already posted some fantastic examples in the past couple of weeks to fill empty garage space and we look forward to seeing what else pops up in April and May — which are historically the most active months on our website.

Back to our regular Italian program – a truly rare 1982 Bimota SB3 with history!!

Ex-Malcolm Forbes owned 1982 Bimota SB3 with Suzuki GS1000 engine!

Having answered some of our readers’ request for fewer Italian bikes (well, Ducati specifically), I posted a Honda RVF750R RC45 race bike and a Honda NR750 that generated some interesting comments.  However, I am still an eye-talian bike kinda guy and so before long I find myself Googling “Bimota” and this is what I found:

The motorcycle has been in a private collection since new. The bike is almost 30 years old and in beautiful condition, as it should for remaining in a climate controlled environment for its entire life. This is an exclusive and gorgeous exotic thoroughbred. Its craftsmanship and design will grace any collection. The motorcycle was purchased by Malcolm Forbes new, and is being sold from the Forbes collection. It has been maintained meticulously, even being taken back to Italy for a complete renovation at the Bimota factory. Mr. Forbes had a specially equipped 727 for carrying motorcycles; he transported motorcycles all over the world regularly. Here is an article that came out when he bought the Bimota [see photo above].

Look closely at the technology and engineering of this machine. The SB3 showcase’s some radical thinking; particularly in the frame design. The chromoly frame is assembled around the engine and uses aircraft style conical joints to connect the front and rear halves. It also has a perimeter swing arm, which pivots exactly at the transmission sprocket axis, eliminating the need for chain slack. Its modular bodywork and top of the line Italian components made it one of the most, if not the most expensive motorcycle you could buy in 1982. The engine, a Suzuki GS-1000, has been increased in power by adapting a 4 into 1 type exhaust system. Its standard suction chamber [I think he meant the air box – ph] has been replaced with 4 K&N filters on the carburetor horns. Only 402 were made during its production; this bike being a late production model (number 390).

Included in the auction are all of the service records, receipts and paperwork. This Bimota has been ridden regularly over the years; there are not any issues because of the bike sitting for an extended period of time.

The SB3 (like the very collectible SB2) has a modular steel tubular frame joined together by conical joints (you can see this in one of the photos above of the right hand side of the frame) – a very unique and innovative feature even by today’s standards.  It weighted 20kgs less than it’s donor bike (the Suzuki GS1000) and was 20 km/h faster – it even set a time of 1’02″40 at the Monza circuit where 55″ was the record for GP bikes at that time.

There were only 402 SB3s produced in total, with most of them being in a silver grey with paint stripe paint scheme.  Only 9 were offered in white with red speed blocks which makes this one even more rare. Now Suzuki engined Bimotas aren’t particularly collectible (with the exception of the SB2), but with its unique frame structure, colour scheme, combined with the interesting ownership history, I bet this SB3 will be sold for good money when the auction ends.

Italian Connection: Rare bike collection for sale in Italy!

For Sale: Ducati TT1 F1 NCR 900ss 998R NCR Evoluzione 888 916 Honda 250GP CBX RC45 Lambretta

RSBFS was recently contacted by an Italian entreprenuer who was putting his collection of rare racebikes and streetbikes up for sale. And what a collection! Above witness a Honda 250 GP racer (left) as prepped by HRC and ridden by Stefano Caracchi, a Ducati 888 NCR Superbike (middle) also raced by Stefano Caracchi, and a Ducati 916 that won the 1995 San Marino GP in Monza with Pier Francesco Chili aboard! And that is just the start of this amazing private museum.

If you like the racebike them but are more intereseted in street legal machinery, then how about this flawless Honda RC45 – better known as a RVF750R to some. Developed by Honda as a homologation bike to qualify for the Superbike World Championship, the European versions were good for a reported 118 horsepower!

If Ducati is more your speed (pun intended), how about this NCR Ducati 998R. According to the seller, this bike was the number 1 996R. It was used by Ducati for internal testing and media events. It was then sent to NCR, and was transformed into the original and unique 998R NCR Evoluzione.

What collection would be complete without the iconic Ducati 900ss? This particular bevel twin was prepped by NCR specifically for endurance racing and includes bigger valves, bigger carbs, a Conti silencer and Campagnolo alloy wheels.

According to the seller, only 7 of these Ducati TT1 F1 NCR exist! These were first produced for Mike Hailwood, and the initial 2 bikes were delivered directly to Hailwood (to commemorate his Isle of Man TT victory and the World title). This particular bike is the third one built by NCR.

In a collection of this caliber, this CBX looks positively pedestrian – although it is certainly a rare and desirable bike. This bike just does not quite have the same racing history as the others in the collection. It is in fully original condition and looks perfect.

And if all of the above beasts are too much bike for you, then here is a wonderful little Lambretta Innocenti Li125. This 4-speed scooter was introduced as a 1959 model.

From the seller:
My business activities require my full commitment and I have very little time to dedicate to my passion and to take care of my unique collection. In addition, my family does not share my same passion for motorsports and has other interests. Therefore, in order to avoid the risk of having to witness the slow but inexorable decline of my “creatures”, I have decided to sell my collection. I hope that you will take care of my “precious” masterpieces.
