1991 Honda NSR250 MC21

Since becoming an author on RSBFS, I have become more interested in 2 strokes.  I have always been a huge fan of the limited production 4 stroke race bikes, but I can see myself picking one of these up real soon.  

MC 21 on with no reserve and a starting bid of $3200.

MC 21 1MC 21 4MC 21 2MC 21

With 12,584 miles on the clock this one is used and ready to ride.  The pictures show some wear and tear, but I did a quick search and the starting price seems to be market correct when considering the condition.  The plus is this one appears to have the ever elusive registration that was current up until yesterday.  The seller posted a lot of pictures on ebay that show some of the age marks; you can  to view them.  This one is not a garage queen so it can be ridden without fear of someone scratching it.

The seller didn't have much to say about the bike so I won't post up any quotes, but the one thing I did notice about this particular MC 21 and that is it comes with the aftermarket "go fast stickers!"

1985 Honda VF1000R 100% original

Although, I'm not sure this counts as a rare sport bike, it does make me appreciate 1985 HRC cutting edge technology.  I also couldn't help myself, but to chuckle a little bit and to think of those pioneering road racers who raced these beast.  Take a close look at the pictures and look at the early "vented disc brakes" on the rear.  Is it just me or do those bolt together rims look a little flimsy?   

VFR1VFR2VFR3VFR4VFR5

This 1985 Honda VF 1000 R shows very well and appears to have been taken well care of.  If you notice in the pictures, it has all of the original stickers still on it.  The last pictures shows the chain adjustment sticker still in tact.  I always thought if I removed those stickers I would be saving weight and thus go faster; if nothing else I would look fast sitting still!  All joking aside this is one nice bike that is on the verge of being an antique (gees, I'm getting old). 

This one is located at a dealer in Midlothian, IL

All original Honda vf1000r Interceptor.  The bike is in the all original red, white and blue racing colors and has 9,010 original miles. This bike is all stock and as original as they come.  Every sticker from the chain guard to the frame are intact and in perfect condition.

 
I hope you appreciate it as much as I do.  Just looking at it makes me feel patriotic.

1987 Honda CBR250R Hurricane For Sale in California

This submission is from Chris for his very rare 87 CBR250R. This bike has seen considerable love from Chris and Garage Company. Check out his Craigslist listing for full details on the work on this bike to make it perfect:

quote from Craiglist post:

1987 Honda CBR250R Hurricane (Code name : CBR250RH) , made only 1 year and only sold in japan. Somehow the bike arrived in the US and I bought it registered and titled.....so it is street legal.

Just a brief history, it has a 250cc , 16 valve, 4 cylinder, 4 carb, twin cam engine that runs on cam gears. Bike also has an all aluminum frame and goldish colored headers which I was told could be titanium..not sure. These headers only came on this model CBR250 and had the largest ports so they were most popular. Sounds amazing and redlines at 18,250 RPM. This bike was engineered by Shoichiro Irimajiri.....Honda's most famed designer of the CBX

[...]

When I bought the bike it was painted all black, and it took me a year to collect all the original fairings and I found a new "Old stock" tank out of japan. I took the bike to Yoshi, owner of the Garage Company, La's top vintage restorer. He had just finished a bike for Michael schumacher, and had a few rare honda's in the showroom so I thought he was best for the job. We put new tires on the bike, chain & sprocket, intake manifolds, rebuilt and oiled the front forks, rebuilt carbs, valve adjust, tuned and jetted. Bike runs like a top. Pics and video's taken with the contour HD. This bike sold for $6k new in 87. $8500obo

He also includes this video that features the awesome sound of that 250cc four all the way up to the 18k redline!

Thanks for the submission Chris and good luck with the sale!

Now updated with new link and lower price ($6500!). 9.28.09
