1995 Honda NSR250 SE MC28 For Sale in California

Our friend and fellow NSR250 enthusiast, Nathan, has written back to us to let us know that he is letting go of one his bikes. As always we’re flattered when readers think of us, especially with such nice hardware as this.

1995 Honda NSR250 SE For Sale

If you’ve come this far you probably know exactly what an NSR250 SE MC28 is, but if not, here are some quick comments from this website Nathan refers to regarding NSR250 history:

On November 11, 1993 the all new MC28 model NSR went on sale in Japan as a 1994 model. It was completely different than previous models and changed peoples thinking about two stroke technology. The new Proarm NSR’s as they became known in Japan were the ultimate 250 bike for the street. They had PGM IV technology which allowed more accurate1994 NSR 250 R – 57K for more control of the carbs, smooth operation and perfect driving manners unlike past two stroke bikes. The all new Memory card replaced the standard key and made de-restricting the bikes very difficult. The 1994 lineup saw three types of NSR’s for sale once again. There was the standard 250R type model in fighting red and Ross white. They were sold with a regular wet type clutch and non adjustable suspension. They were priced at 680,000 Yen. 1994 NSR 250 SE – 58K for full imageThe SE model was priced at 720,000 Yen and came with the fully adjustable suspension front and rear made by Showa plus the dry clutch and different colored front disc rotors. SE colors were the same as the standard R type in fighting red and Ross white but were marked SE and the NSR logo was in bright yellow. SE models also were sold in blue and white with orange accents and also were marked SE but the NSR logo was white.

If interested, contact Nathan directly at: 714 833 4993

quote from his eBay listing:

Super RARE 1995 Honda NSR SE 250 or also known as a (MC-28) It has a CA plate and registration which is very hard to get on these so it’s ready for the streets. It has very low miles 5418 KM which = 3366 miles only!! These are actual factory farings not repainted after market china knock offs this bike is in amazing condition considering the age of this bike!! The whole bike is still stock except the turn signals in the rear have been taken off and now work with the rear brake lights!! also just put on brand new tires so this thing is 100% ready to go!!

Hi-Res Gallery Exclusive to RSBFS:

With only some 3400 miles, this bike is barely even broken in — not to mention Nathan prefers his bikes only one way: spotless! I expect this bike is worth a look if it’s passed his criteria.

Good luck with the sale Nathan!

Seattle Homologation SportBike Collection For Sale

A collector and friend of RSBFS is thinning the herd and offering the following fantastic homologation specials for sale {please kneel}:

Get the goods on each bike below:

1992 Ducati 851 For Sale Very Low Miles

1992 Ducati 851 with Less Than 2000 Miles!

Update 8.9.2010: SOLD!

Comments from the seller:

All original -except for the addition of the booming Gi.Co.Moto twin pipes for that wonderful “Sound of Thunder” music from the Desmo V-Twin engine.


1988 Bimota YB6 For Sale Perfect Condition

1988 Bimota YB6

Update 8.9.2010: SOLD!

Comments from the seller:

A beautiful old school collector for the Bimota enthusiasts.

Yamaha 1000cc engine with Keihin flat-slide carbs
(oh….this one will scoot alright!!).

Growls like a mean-ass junk yard dog.


1988 Bimota YB4E.I. For Sale

1988 Bimota YB4E.I.

Comments from the seller:

Take a look at this sexy thing……probably my favorite Bimota of all time. This thing is such a work of art. The 1988 YB4E.I. model released after Bimota took the last ever TT-F1 title in ’87.


Graves Yamaha AMA Formula Extreme R7-1 For Sale

Graves Yamaha AMA Formula Extreme R7-1

Update 8.9.2010: SOLD!

Comments from the seller:

Graves Yamaha AMA Formula Extreme R7-1 raced by Damon Buckmaster (AUS). YEC factory kit EVERYTHING from frame to swingarm to bracing to chassis to radiator to engine and every part on it. Adjustable swingarm pivot, steering stem, ride heights, etc.

Stroker 1080cc full-on SuperBike factory engine and every special YEC Kit factory item from the Yamaha WSBK team. 190hp and the best SBK chassis available back when Superbikes were Superbikes (and not warmed-over street bikes). This thing is light and goes like a missile.

The R7-1 was actually BANNED from AMA competition after it laid waste to the Formula Extreme class back in the days before the AMA series scuttled the class because the FX bikes were faster than the 750cc SuperBike Class (headliner) machines.

Have a ton of the press articles on the bike from magazines (and web
magazines) of the day.


{Still kneeling right?}


Yamaha FZR750RR OW01 For Sale

Yamaha FZR750R OW01

Comments from the seller:

Beautiful condition, all original with 2,700 miles. Only 200 of these produced and they’re getting harder
and harder to find here in the States.


Honda RC30 VFR750 For Sale

Honda RC30 VFR750R

Update 9.13.2010: SOLD!

Comments from the seller:

Wonderfully clean example with only 2,950 miles on the odometer. All original and unmolested condition.
Has all the manuals and tool kits and everything else it came with from the factory.


Honda RC45 RVF750 For Sale

Honda RC45 RVF750

Update 9.13.2010: SOLD!

Comments from the seller:

Very clean example with 6,975 miles on it. Has the HRC PGM wire modification done to it (more HP)
and has a aftermarket exhaust canister installed for a little more of that V-4 sound.


Bimota Vdue For Sale

Bimota Vdue

Comments from the seller:

Still in all original condition. 360 kilometers. Has the usual Vdue “issues” with the engine fueling -but can be sorted out.
(I’ve got another bike exactly the same that has been sorted and runs great.) This bike has stayed in original condition
though and has not had any modifications done to it.


So here’s my question: How do you choose? This is my favorite era of SportBike and seeing a collection like this is exactly what I’d like to have in my own stable some day. It would be like that corner spot in the Barber Motorsports Museum with all the great ones:

Interested parties better hurry because come Thursday after my $175mil PowerBall lotto ticket hits, I’m just going to buy them all!

If you have questions about the model specifications or history, or just want to chat about the collection, please post a comment below — the whole RSBFS team is going to keep an eye on this thread and will be happy to answer questions! Qualified buyers, I am acting as a proxy for the seller. Please send your inquires to dan@motoringblogs.com for additional details.

Team Veloce Aprilia Runs a 250 Two Stroke Against the 600’s at Miller SBK Weekend

Team Veloce Aprilia with the Moto Forza Aprilia 250 at Miller Motosports Park SBK weekend

Yes it’s been two weeks since the Miller SBK weekend, but we’ve got most of our media together now and will be begin publishing the details and stories. First up is the press release from Team Veloce Aprilia:

World Superbike Event, Miller Motorsports 2010

Miller GTU Class May 30th 2010

Out of forty-three 600cc entries in the GTU Class, the Moto-Forza / Team Veloce Aprilia 250 GP bike set the pace in the first practice session at 15th fastest. That’s right: we beat twenty-eight 600’s! When all was said and done we qualified 22nd out of the 40 bikes that made the grid using the 110% rule. Starting on the 5th row was a struggle even for the two-time USGPRU Champ, Nobi Iso who fell back to 33rd by the first lap. As the pace picked up so did Nobi and he continued on an amazing stretch to pass 11 other bikes to finish an honest 22nd in a flawless performance.

Did we win the race? Well no, but that wasn’t our goal. Rather, we wanted to enjoy a good time at the best road racing course in America and to show what a 2-stroke can do. Thanks to our Veloce crew (Nobi Iso, Mike Ost, Jerry Clark, Jay Bernard, Kaleb Ground, Marc Morris and Spiros “Big Boss” Gabrilis) and Moto Forza’s own Balz Renggli, we got to hang with the our old friends with the Aprilia factory WSBK team, race, eat and add more adventures to the story book.

Grazie mille tutti (thanks alot everyone)

Team Veloce Aprilia

And here are some pictures of the team at work:

Stay tuned for additional coverage — better late than never!

1986 Kawasaki Ninja GPZ900R Time Capsule For Sale

Today’s latest feature comes from Declan in Long Beach, California. Check out this very clean and very low mile GPZ900R for sale in Long Beach.

Update: This listing has just been adjusted to $4900 or best offer!

quote from seller:

1986 900 Ninja has 1804 miles on it with a Corbin seat, Kerker exhaust, and even has the original warranty card! This bike was never raced or been wrecked and the only thing not original as purchased are the Battlax tires.

The pictures really do speak for themselves; this thing is clean!

The GPZ900R is another classic sportbike that was king of the hill in her day. The first Kawasaki to wear the Ninja namesake featuring 115hp and a top speed of 150mph. And when Maverick rocked one in Top Gun, every 12 year old on the planet, including myself, knew they would have to own one someday. With less than 2000 miles, this is about as new as you’re going to get. At only $5500 $4900 or best offer, you can relive the dream today.

1975 Kawasaki 500 H1F 2 Stroke Cafe Racer For Sale

Located in Newport Beach, California, Tony’s 1975 Kawasaki H1F 500 is our latest featured listing. With only 7700 miles and tasteful cafe racer upgrades, this is one sharp looking classic sportbike!

Update: Now Sold!

1975 Kawasaki H1F 500 For Sale

Here is what the owner tells us about the bike

Up for sale is the last and best year of Kawasaki two stroke era. A 1975 MACH 500 H1F with only 7700 miles. A true rare blast from the past!

The bike has been upgraded with alloy wheels from a KZ series bike with dual disc added upfront and lower handlebars for a café racer look. I have the orig handlebars, wheels and factory pipes to restore the bike to original condition if you like the stock look better.

The bike has a new $750 paint job which matches orig color scheme and new tires, seat, battery, grips, levers etc. The triple carbs have been rebuilt and synchro from pro mechanic shop Mach 1 in Costa Mesa, CA. Over $6k invested in this bike!

The bike has a nice set of custom “Bill Wirges” expansion chambers who was the premier pipe tuner back in the day.. These pipes are very hard to find and are worth $600-$1200 alone. They can be sold separately if someone really wants them.

The bike has a clear title with matching numbers. Starts first or second kick and idles smooth. Oil injection works and the bike runs great!

Contact Tony by email at tony.hhh@gmail.com or 949-351-6752 for more photos.

And here is a little video of Tony’s machine breathing through those Bill Wirges expansion chambers:

The Kawasaki 500 was truly the king of the pack in it’s day with 60hp and a 12.8 second quarter mile that left it’s competition in the dust. This looks like a great opportunity to get your hands on a really good looking and well upgraded example for only $4750.

Good luck with the sale Tony!

Update on Bay Area Collection For Sale

Here is an update from Rory on the remaining inventory in the collection — with pictures!

Update 1.20.10: I got another update from Rory, and he tells me the RC45 and 888 are both sold now.

We’ve been a bit surprised by the great response through your site and been scrambling a bit to keep up with the inquiries. Invariably, people have been asking for details on bikes that we haven’t pulled out of storage to work on. And, as you already know, a real enthusiast from the East Coast struck a deal for 5 of the bikes, redirecting our focus for a time. A fellow drove up from LA on Christmas Eve to take the Ducati F1, and we have someone coming from Reno today to look at the Honda RC45.

We’ve at least rolled all the remaining bikes out to take photos and determine general condition and mileage. Anyone can contact us directly for more info.

Here is what is remaining as of January 5th:

’04 Benelli Tornado Tre – This bike has only 2 miles showing on the odometer and looks as though it has never been on the road.

’00 MV F4 – 426 miles The VIN# on this bike ends with 100000. While we can’t be absolutely sure, I spoke with someone at MV USA who believes that this probably the first F4 in the country.

’98 Ducati 916 SPS – 6059 miles. I’ve ridden this one around the block – great bike.

’93 Ducati 888 SPO – 2031 miles. Next on our list to get running.

’06 Yamaha R1 Rossi replica – 17 miles.

’06 Yamaha R1 Special Edition – 0 miles. No photo, but it’s the traditional Yamaha yellow and black paint scheme.

’99 Yamaha R7 OW02 – 3646 km.

’94 Honda RC45 – 3718 miles. Has two 1” diameter paint scuffs on side and rear panels but otherwise good shape. This bike is running now.

’72 Norton 810 Dunstall – 1983 miles. A very nice example and also now running.

Please contact Rory at vtauto@sbcglobal.net for further information about the remaining bikes available for sale in the collection. I’m still tempted to get a second mortgage and get a big trailer for most of them!

If you have a special bike or collection that needs attention, email us at web@raresportbikesforsale.com. We’d be happy to consider your submission for regular posting, or we can provide a feature service for a small fee that will promote the listing on every page of our site.

2009 Seattle International Motorcycle Show Part 1: Teaser Wallpapers!

Yamaha-Racebike-Wallpaper

We just got back from the show and it was another great trip to Seattle. We nearly missed the Saturday trip out of town as we woke up in Corvallis, Oregon to freezing rain and treacherous conditions. But the temps finally warmed above freezing by about 10:00am and we made the 4 hour run up to Seattle. While the show was a bit smaller than last year, the only noticeable absences were the exotics like Aprilia and KTM, who were at the show last year.

Initial impressions:

  • The Yamaha FZ1 with the retro plastics looked really great. Too bad it’s a $1600 option!
  • Props to BMW for bringing the RR press bike fresh from a track day with shredded tires.
  • The new VFR actually isn’t as ugly as I thought when I saw it in person. But I wouldn’t call it good looking either.
  • The CBR1000RR and 600RR are pretty damn good looking in white.
  • Great older and classic bikes on display. I’ll give them their own gallery later.
  • The Ducati stunt show was awesome! Apparently they poured maple syrup and coke on the floor to make it sticky enough to stunt on too!
  • And the Ducati Streetfighter continues to surprise with it ‘s stunning looks.

I’m pretty wiped out after the drive back this afternoon, so I’m just going to post a few pictures for now. I’ve got 350 pictures to sort through and I’ll post a gallery later this week. I gave these a little Photoshop and they’re sized as 1680px wallpapers as well. Enjoy!
