Year: 1992
Model: VFR400 NC30
Location: Dover, Delaware

Steve Says:
This Honda NC30 is from our clients estate collection. We took care of the more modern machines and are very familiar with this bike in particular.
Imported recently, he had us install the Tyga exhaust and jetting work. We also upgraded the radiators and cooling lines. New Chain and sprockets along with a complete service and detailing. This NC has steel braided brake lines front and rear.
This is one of the nicest looking and running NC’s we have had come through here.
Legally imported with all documentation,this machine was not registered before he passed. At 25 years old and with all import documentation, it is ready to be titled in the new owners state and name.


Tyga states their full exhaust system coupled with their Maggot silencer adds 7hp bumping it to 59hp and reduces weight by 50% over the stock exhaust. If 59hp isn’t enough for you, I’m quite certain the boys have a few gallons of leaded Power Mist Fuel to help you reach 60hp. 🙂
As mentioned, you can see the new sprocket, chain and braided rear brake line.


This one hasn’t been out much and only showing 18,962km or 11,782 miles on the odometer.


Dressed in Honda Ruby Red, an 18″ rear wheel takes care of the party end while the 17″ front paired with 296mm dual discs handles the business end.

As you can see by all of the high-res images- this little VFR is in excellent condition and the boys at the shop have it ready to roll. As a matter of fact, this one is so nice it may be better served posted up on a race stand in the toy room.

FREE nationwide shipping is included in the $12,000 price.

Reach out to Steve at 302-672-7223 or steve@speedwerks.com if you’re interested.

Later-

Trackday Tuesday Feature – 2012 Ducati Monster 1100 EVO Race Bike

Ducati packed a host of worthwhile changes into the 4th Generation Monster, and RSBFS reader Jonathan has modified his extensively for the racetrack.  With its Paul Smart style fairing, NCR look belly pan, and custom race-prep for just about everything else, this Monster race bike is ready for this season’s Battle of Twins.

2012 Ducati Monster 1100 EVO Race Bike for sale

Ducati massaged the air-cooled desmodue and achieved 100 hp for showroom machines, and was able to stretch valve adjustment intervals for the dual-spark motor.  Accompanying the big power was a heavily triangulated trellis from headstock to engine, and a cast aluminum subframe holding the single-sided swingarm.  Its high gear ratios are a natural for the race course, and the 43mm Marzocchi forks can handle the force of the 320mm cross-drilled brakes.  A plastic fuel cell hides under the tank covers, and the stock seat fairing has a remarkably similar shape to the racing seat.

Jonathan works in a Chicago motorcycle shop when he’s not practicing his AHMRA or BoT craft, and has raced and wrenched many different bikes.  The Monster has had the engine done by MotoCorse in Fort Lauderdale, and shows a dyno sheet with 90 rwhp.  There’s a long list of mods for the track, with a custom exhaust and seat subframe.  Here it is single-spaced:

2012 Monster 1100 EVO BOT1 Bike with PS1000 style fairing, Custom Aluminum Fairing Stay, Custom Aluminum Subframe Mounts, Custom exhaust, NCR style belly pan, race tail, and blueprinted engine from MotoCorse.

Has the following components and modifications:

Yoyodyne Slipper Clutch
Andreani Fork Cartridges
Penske Shock
Ohlins Steering Damper
Rapid Bike with Quickshifter
Zullo ECU Flash
Woodcraft Rearsets
Woodcraft Clip-Ons
Woodcraft Lever Guard
Aim Solo2 Aux Power Cable and Mount (Lap timer NOT included)
Throttle Tamer Tube
Brembo GP Mk2 Front Brake Master Cylinder
GP routed Brake lines (ABS deleted)
Shift Tech Muffler with Custom exhaust
BST Carbon Fiber Wheels
Brembo Supersport Rotors
Keyless Fuel Cap
Woodcraft Clutch Cover Guard
Pro bolt Race Spec Caliper Bolts
MotoCorse Performance Adjustable Camshaft and Layshaft Pulleys
Spare OEM Wheel Set with Rotors

Jonathan asks $22,000 with BST Carbon wheels and Brembo super sport rotors, or just $19,000 with stock wheels and rotors  He can be reached via email here – Tecnicomoto729@gmail.com

A short corner exit video shows the torque –

20220115 2012 ducati monster race bike on track

Especially with the carbon wheel set, the Monster road racer is up-to-date gear for a track day or club racing.  Race bikes always need more maintenance than their road cousins, but the 1100 dual spark is as reliable as they come, and apparently free of any major mishaps.  Spring is on the way and the calendar is already filling in.  Contact Jonathan to discuss this special Monster – Tecnicomoto729@gmail.com

Featured Listing – 1989 Suzuki GSX-R 1100

Update 1.17.2022: The buyer couldn’t get this worked out when it sold so it’s been relisted. Links updated. *edit: just a few hours after we posted the bike sold. Congratulations to buyer and seller! -dc

The RSBFS faithful will undoubtedly know Chris Perkins from GSXRonly.com. Chris has listed some amazing builds on this site, complete with the requisite photography and honest descriptions. And today’s bike is no exception, except that instead of a perfect resto or a mod-rod hammer style big bore build up it is more of a very clean survivor / rider example of the classic liter bike monster, the GSX-R 1100 in beautiful blue & white.

1989 Suzuki GSX-R1100 on eBay

Featured Listing – 1989 Suzuki GSX-R 1100 for sale on eBay

The GSX-R line should require no introductions on these pages, as Suzuki’s revolutionary race bike for the street bowed as a 750 in 1985, introducing light weight and race-spec components that redefined performance for the 750cc class. The 1100 model followed the next year, and similarly made existing liter bikes obsolete. But nothing remains static in the competitive arena of competitive motorcycles, and by 1988 the original 750 had already been upgraded in several areas, including a more robust frame. 1989 introduced similar changes to the 1100 (including a bump in displacement), resulting in the best handling and fastest big Suzuki to date. The 1127cc inline four – still cooled via a combination of air and 2 high-flow oil pumps – churned out 143 HP when new, could rip a quarter mile in the very low 10s, and nudged 170 mph flat out on the top end. Heady stuff for the 1980s.

From the seller:
1989 Suzuki GSX-R1100

15,600 miles
New Michelin tires
Yoshimura Duplex Exhaust
Repainted Rear Wheel
Great brakes, clutch and chain/sprocket
Cleaned and rebuilt carbs, new needle valves, ‘O” rings fuel lines and seals for the fuel delivery to the bowls
Lowers have been repainted due to tip over cracks and scuffs. Plastic welded and repainted with PPG products
Rear tail panels have had a few of the mounting nipples repaired.
Small crack left ear near the mirror on the upper fairing
Small crack (repaired from inside to stabilize) on right rear tail,
Small crack on left rear tail
Small crack on front fender
Scratches on the tank
Original white pearl paint is yellowing, as is typical for these bikes.
Metal is very nice, small scratch on right side of swing arm behind pipe
OEM reflectors, rear fender , rear tire hugger
OEM directional’s and mirrors

Running bike, Add fuel. Very fast, somewhat loud, but a lot of fun. If you are looking to have the rest of the bodywork painted, we can make that happen. I have the complete decal kit in hand. Otherwise, ride it as it is.

I try very hard to advise of all known defects so there is no confusion as to the condition, many times I am overly critical, but I have made a trip myself to get bikes, and have been disappointed at the description.

More from the seller:
This 1989 Suzuki GSX-R 1100 is a really nice, mostly original example of a survivor /rider that is in need of a new pilot. Clean Florida title in my name. Ready to assist in shipping, but it is the buyers responsible for making arrangements. Any question or offers, please call.

Asking price: $11,500

Today we are seeing earlier generation GSX-Rs evolve into true collector bikes. Time has been kind to the style and the legend that is the Gixxer, but so many of these models were not treated kindly in return. Therefore simply finding a serviceable example of one these bikes from the 1980s is a feat unto itself. And when you find one, you have work to do. Potentially a lot of work, depending upon the condition and how recently it was used. Today’s Featured Listing 1989 Suzuki GSX-R 1100 has already had a pretty thorough going over by the sounds of things, and Chris is very open as to the overall mechanical and cosmetic shape of the machine – in both pictures and words. The period correct Yoshimura exhaust and Lockhart tinted screen is just icing on the cake! If you have lusted after a classic GSX-R and are looking for a rider or if you seek a platform to build the bike of your dreams, check out all of the great pictures and then give Chris a shout and strike a deal. Good Luck!!

Featured Listing – 2009 Honda CBR1000RR Repsol Edition

Update 12.11.21: SOLD in less than a day! Congratulations to buyer and seller!

If you have a bike for sale that would benefit from this kind of exposure, contact us for a Featured Listing. -dc

Though it can be considered a 10th generation FireBlade, the CBR1000RR is really it’s own animal, a no compromises superbike.  RSBFS reader Rod has a pristine low mileage example with extensive upgrades and amazing cosmetics.

2009 Honda CBR1000RR Repsol – Priced to sell at $9,999

Honda had re-designed the 999cc engine for 2008, and continued with its 175 hp and 85 ft.-lbs. torque.  The titanium valves and forged pistons were shoe-horned into a more compact design, keep weight lower and more centralized.  Twin ram-air tubes make their way through the fine die cast chassis, whose segments are surprisingly thin but when heli-arced together make for a super rigid frame.  Keeping things from getting out of hand is a shared responsibility of the factory slipper clutch and electronic steering damper. ABS was an option in 2009 but not fitted to this example.  Weight saving measures included re-evaluating the brakes, wheels, and sidestand, and with a dry weight under 400 lbs, can only be considered a great success.

Here is Rod’s walkaround video –

 

Rod is the original owner and took the long view with a full paint protection kit, keeping the smashing livery looking great through the Repsol’s 2,899 miles.  He also went to town at the accessory counter, but we’ll let him give you his comments and comprehensive list of mods:

Treat yourself to a Christmas gift to remember …

You’d be hard pressed to find a finer 2009 Repsol Fireblade short of the 0 mile example which recently sold for $15,622 on Iconic.

Arguably the best of the last of the “Pure” Superbikes before the advent of Electronic rider aids. This generation Fireblade won 3 consecutive Superbike Shootouts as well as 5 Consecutive Isle of Man TT’s, proving this series to be one of the sharpest Blades ever.

Considering this 1 Owner, Low (2,899) mile 2009 Repsol Edition CBR1000RR shows in near Showroom condition PLUS over $6k in upgrades (with all OE parts retained), this could be the best “Black-Friday” deal of the season at $9,999

I’ve previously sold two other bikes from my ToyZ Story collection here on RSBFS, and this 3rd offering may be the charm!

Rod is firm at $9,999

Team Repsol certainly rates every commemorative, only occasionally out of the championship running and often fielding a three rider team.  And kudos to Rod, presenting his CBR undressed and even down to the internal fuel tank.  Last chance to put some miles on this Fireblade, in a few years it will be too nice and too classic to do much but return to stock and put on display.  Since Rod has the original parts, the new owner will have all the options.

Featured Listing – 1991 Ducati 851 SP2 Tribute

Legendary as the Ducati 851 was, the racing department made several updates which were offered in the guise of the SP2.  A previous owner and Northwest European’s present client honed their 851 into this sharp-edged SP2 replica, beautifully presented here.

1991 Ducati 851 SP2 Tribute asking $20,000

Arguably Ducati’s first superbikes, the 851 was powered by their first desmoquatro, with water cooling and fuel injection also firsts for the model.  The SP2 had well over 100 hp per liter available at 116 hp, pushing the full fairing through the speed traps north of 150 mph.  The trellis frame, single rectangular headlight and hinged fuel tank are classic now, but new then.  But it was largely the components that the SP2 was sold to homologate – a close ratio gearbox, fully adjustable inverted forks, Öhlins monoshock, and cross-drilled Brembo brakes. 

Jason at Northwest European is a friend of RSBFS, and has helped the owners of this SP2 replica preserve and maintain this excellent tribute.  Though not an 888, so many SP2 details have been up-cycled that it is a dead ringer for the unicorn.  Most evident are the monoposto tailcone and SP2 triple tree with number plate, but look underneath for the alloy seat and fairing supports, billet brake calipers, and braided lines.  The carbon rear mudguard and large diameter Ferracci exhaust are more modern upgrades.  A few of Jason’s notes from the Northwest European web page:

Visually, the overall condition of this Ducati beguiles the 30 years since original construction. Essentially every detail of this machine from the lightweight bodywork, front and rear aluminum subframe, OEM Ducati tail section, machined details, and refined mechanical features are beautifully polished, honed, and properly maintained to factory specifications. The tires, massive Brembo brake calipers, drilled disc brake surfaces, and drive chain are all in excellent condition. The engine fires off brilliantly with crisp throttle response, fantastic exhaust note, and blistering acceleration even on mild throttle. Every aspect of this SP2 tribute confirms the magic and iconic status of these original race-bred bikes.

This Ducati is accompanied by a factory owner’s manual, service manual, original tail section and subrame and a support stand dolly for the rear wheel. Also includes original exhaust. Featuring fresh fluids throughout, and less than 50 miles on the cam belts, it’s a true museum piece, or ready to ride this weekend as desired.

Asking price is $20,000 – Please contact Jason Harris at 206-355-7727 for more information on this 1991 Ducati 851 SP2 Tribute.

Rarity for the 851 is assured, with production well under 1,500 in any of its five years, though seasons might pass between SP2 sightings.  And while not sure the 37cc difference from the 888 would be easy to discern, DMV will quickly point out that SP2’s were never intended for the street, but this replica can be ridden and not only trailered to an event.  This might be a perfect compromise for a rider / collector – skillfully conceived and executed, impeccably maintained, and ready to show and register.

Check out – Northwest European’s page –  or give Jason a call at 206-355-7727 to discuss.

Featured Listing – 2008 Ducati S4RS Tricolore

Update 11.28.2021: David has just relisted three bikes from his collection: Ducati Elite 200, Ducati PS1000LE, and a Ducati S4RS Tricolore! Interested parties can contact David as follows: edinger.david@icloud.com) +1-317-908-2573. Thank you again for supporting the site! -dc

Ducati took a step away from the “Swiss Army knife” of motorcycles when they put the liter-sized desmoquattro in a Monster frame, but they generated a lot of excitement in the showroom and on the road.  The 2008 eyeball magnet shoehorned the 998cc testastretta engine into ( well, under ) the classic gold trellis frame.  David’s limited TriColore edition has lots of carbon, both factory and upgrades, and premium Öhlins suspension.

2008 Ducati Monster S4RS

At 130 hp, power from the 999-spec narrowhead engine is about all that can be used without more recent electronic aids.  Headers and plumbing that would be under a superbike fairing are smoothly integrated into the engine scoop and aftermarket radiator shroud.  The beautifully crafted single-sided swingarm could have been glorified rather “disappeared” in black, but it shows off the wide rear wheel from the right.  The one-piece tapered handlebar is all business, though some might have preferred the clip-ons used on earlier models.  Dry weight is under 400 lbs, superbike cooling woes are largely gone with the full fairing, and the bikini windscreen reviewed as much more effective than appeared possible.

RSBFS reader and collector David chose this Monster for his usual rider, and accessorized carefully.  The carbon engine scoop and Termingnoni mufflers are most evident, with the carbon tank guard and radiator shroud doing their part to hide hoses and scratches.  Almost disappearing are the Rizoma mirrors and revised signals and levers.  As tricky as it is to keep Monsters looking sharp, David has kept up with it, and he asks $9,500 for his example.  Here are his notes:

This is a two owner bike and is loaded with aftermarket accessories including, dark windscreen,
carbon fiber engine covers, carbon fiber belly pan, adjustable levers, carbon fibers radiator
shrouds, Carbon fiber front fender and rear hugger, open clutch cover, rear sets and
aftermarket blinkers front and rear.  This bike is #284 of 400.  I bought the bike from the original owner in 2009 and it was my favorite bike for 10 years and the Tricolore livery and limited number of bikes made for one year only makes this bike a collectable bike. It had plenty of good rubber left on it with Dunlop’s front and rear.  I have every receipt for the last 10 years and it has only been serviced by authorized Ducati dealership.  The bike has 15,298 miles and I am asking $10,500.

The liquid-cooled, 4-valve per cylinder, 998 Testastretta L-Twin engine features a 100mm bore
and short stroke of 63.5mm to limit average piston speed and allow increased rpm.  The result is
a staggering 130+hp and 76.6 lb-ft of brute torque.

Testastretta technology allows a reduced angle between the intake and exhaust valves resulting
in a clean, compact combustion chamber that is highly efficient.  The optimized combustion
environment and linear flame front inside the specially designed heads, combined with cutting-
edge electronic engine control technology, guarantees precise and optimal combustion
throughout the rev range.

The chassis components are unparalleled.  Fully adjustable Ohlins suspension front and rear
complemented by super lightweight Y-shaped 5-spoke wheels ensure outstanding handling,
while 320mm Brembo twin discs on the front have radial-mounted calipers with four pistons
and four pads per caliper to provide incredible race-worthy stopping power.

Beside the TriColore being a single year model, it was also the last S4 variant, with air cooled engines taking up the slack until the 1198-powered Monster 1200 was introduced in 2014.  The TriColore colors wouldn’t be seen on a Monster until the 2018 25th Anniversary edition.  The power to sensibility ratio is off the usual charts, but speaks to a skilled, adult rider.  Please contact David by email edinger.david@icloud.com.

Featured Listing – 1981 Bimota KB2 Laser !

Like its then-young designers and builders, the Bimota KB2 could delay worries of certification and conformance and focus on its chosen goals – such as 500 TT competition.  Duncan at Garage Assassins presents a very rare and special KB2.

1981 Bimota KB2 for sale asking $25,500

One look at the trellis frame surrounding Kawasaki’s 550 cc engine will let you know it’s designed for sports.  It cradles the air cooled mill from the sides, allowing easy access to the carbs and cams, and builds up to support the beefy headstock from below.  Ceriani forks have the axle centered in the fork leg.  Nor any compromises at the back of the chassis, with the drive sprocket just behind the swingarm pivot, so there’s no change in chain tension with suspension travel.  Thanks to bespoke headers and 33mm Mikuni slides, power is increased to 65 hp from the GPz550.  Wheel sizes are a racer’s 16-inch, likewise the full fairing which encloses the 4-into-1 collector.  Tank and seat fairings streamline low, with cutouts in the tank for fuel shutoff.

Having completed some preparation, Duncan from Garage Assassins has this KB2 on consignment at their suburban Seattle shop.  Pictures show the exotic details and techniques that made Bimota’s reputation.  Duncan shares these notes on the KB2:

1981 Bimota KB2 7,946 original km.
VIN# KB8200014 One of 177 units built.
Unrestored example of this special 1981 Bimota KB2, yes 7,946 original kms.
Serious buyers only please. $25,500.00 US funds, contact Duncan at –  sennaducati79@gmail.com

This has been part of a private collection for over 20 years, properly stored and maintained.  Said to be Massimo Tamburinis personal favorite of Bimota designs before he departed for Cagiva,  This 1981 Bimota KB2 Laser is the marriage of a super stiff, hand built Italian frame and a Kawasaki  GPZ550 powerplant. Just 177 of these were built. Factory gold Campagnolo Magnesium wheels in 16 inch. Brembo brakes, Marzocchi forks, the bike is light and nimble, very comfortable seating position, feels very short and compact.

Bimota started as a boutique company that outsourced engine-building to Japan to concentrate on bleeding-edge, flex-free frames. No expense was spared on parts, and as a result these bikes went for a hefty $12k in their day. Other factory mods include M1R Marzocchi forks and Brembo four pot calipers.

All the KB models had Kawasaki powerplants, the model signifying the second with Kawasaki power. Its factory rating was around 65 horsepower, but you should get a decent bit more with the upgraded pistons, camshaft and carburetor. At only 375 pounds dry, this one was said to smoke the 60 pound heavier donor Kawis in the twisties. You can see the upgraded Mikuni flat carb peeking out behind the bodywork here. This bike has been in a proper Man Cave stored dry, No Fuel in it. We have recently gone through carburetion, fresh fluids changed in motor/gear box. Complete chassis nut/bolt, body work off for inspection and set up. This bike is ready for a new owner to ride or put on display. It starts immediately, makes beautiful noise. All original, nothing weird, completely correct. Never raced,
never down, never abused. This bike is ready, to be safe we would recommend new tires as these are old, not cracked but old and hard.

Would that Bimota have been able to stay young and continue shipping chassis kits, perhaps the partnership would’ve continued longer, and racing success might not have been so intermittent.  The company grew and made cycles based on all major Japanese models, then began a great success with Ducati drivetrains, and even tried their own engines.  Models like the Tesi reinforced their leading edge designs and manufacturing chops.  But early on the stripped-down sportbikes let the chassis design shine, like this KB2.  Contact Duncan at Garage Assassins to discuss this special KB2 via email – sennaducati79@gmail.com
