Contact us to see if your bike qualifies for a Featured Listing! -dc

Make: Honda
Year: 1992
Model: VFR400 NC30
Location: Dover, Delaware
Mileage: 11,782
Price: $12,000
Contact: Steve at 302-672-7223 or steve@speedwerks.com

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-

Every Part From The Catalog: Harris Modified Honda RC51 SP1

For many years the RC51 was flying under the radar.  Only a few diehard fans were burning the flame whole the RC30 and RC45 got all the attention.  Well those days are well and truly over.  As they have transitioned into a collectable realm demand has increased massively.   While traditionally people shopping for a collectable are focused on finding the cleanest, lowest mileage and most original example they can fine, this can leave out amazing period built modified bikes like this Harris Honda RC51.

Modified when new by the legendary Harris Bother to showcase their line of products it is claimed the modifications cost more then the new bike did.  The best of everything available at the time was used to reduce weight, increase the braking and improve the already excellent handling.  The laundry list of top tier comments is an eye watering collection that would be almost impossible to replicate today.  The large diameter AP Racing 6 pistons calipers hung on Ohlins superbike forks are instantly recognizable as a bike that means business.

Harris is well know for producing frames and offering an extensive catalog of upgrades for a wide range of motorcycles.  They have raced in the premier class of almost every form of motorcycle road racing.  Over the years they have partnered with OEM manufactures and been granted access to factory race parts to develop.

From The Seller’s eBay Listing:

Fastline Superbikes are pleased to offer this stunning and unique, only one ever made, Honda VTR1000SPY Harris SP1 Special. Built by the Harris Brothers in 2000 at a cost of £17000 then. Full listing in original catalogue of exotic parts, Ohlins forks, Ohlins rear shock, Marchesini wheels, Harris yokes, AP brakes, Goldline steering damper, Harris rear-sets, Harris high level exhaust carbon silencers, carbon Kevlar fairing and rear seat, carbon hugger, carbon front fender, quick shifter, Harris carbon frame protectors, Harris screen stay, Harris clip-ons, crash bungs and many more parts listed. Was owned by travelling TT marshal Fred Hoggett in regular mature owners heated mancave. Fully serviced and ready to go. Will come with all manuals, 2 keys, Honda owners manual. Very rare exotic bike.

It would take hours to really pour over all the little details of this build.  The asking price is eighteen thousand Pounds Sterling, or about $25,000.  Anything this custom and unique is hard to price, but it is safe to say there is no way a passionate RC51 fan could ever hope to collect these parts and a clean base bike for that sum of money.

This would make an amazing period correct addition to a garage of someone that wants to experience the best of the best out on the road.

Paging Dr House: 2007 Honda CBR1000RR Repsol

It often seems like Honda has been making the CBR series for millennium.  A staple of every years sport bike tests and features.  Rarely taking top trump in any one particular category, it has always been regaled as an extremely well rounded machine and praised for being easy to extract the potential performance contained within.

This eight generation CBR1000RR is one of the special Repsol editions.  The package was meant to celebrate Honda’s on track success in WSBK and MotoGP.  Race replicas like this had once been much more common, but by 2007 the trend was fading, a shame really as they added a pop and flair to an otherwise bland dealership floor.  This bike was also a long time feature on the hit TV show House.

The OEM package was mainly cosmetic, but the standard 180hp bike did not really warrant much extra.  Honda did not number the edition, so total production is unknown.  From release, these have always been sought after and command a premium over a similar standard bike.  This example appears to have a couple of period correct and desirable add ons.  Chief among them is the Akrapovic exhaust that without a doubt sounds amazing.

From The Seller’s eBay Listing:

2007 Honda cbr 1000rr repsol edition, last 5 of the vin are 00093
Motorcycle is like new for its age, very powerful with zero issues, starts on touch runs very smooth, lots of upgrades Dino jet tuned super fast, all of her miles came from riding trough Georgia and Carolina mountains motorcycle has always been kept inside and ridiculously cleand. Never abused or raced. Has all new brakes EBC, racing brake lines, tires,. All carbon fiber trim, everything up-to-date. I will also include all of the stock parts that are been taking off, Feel free to ask any questions or for videos.

Opening bid of $6499 has yet to be made as of writing.  It has been a while since one of these has been listed in a real auction format.  Normally we see these with much higher Buy It Now prices, so this could be a chance to snag a deal on a fun motorcycle.

Listing claims a very clean bike, but the left side frame bobbin does raise a question.  Mileage is nothing to worry about as these fully live up to the Honda reliability reputation.

Ooh La La! 1982 Honda CB1100R in France

Behold the mighty Honda CB1100R – designed for Europeans as an homage to European-style endurance racing. That makes this bike’s location in Europe – the southern area of France, to be more specific – all the more fitting. For it was here that Honda participated in the 6 and 12 hour events that begat this homlogation machine, along with victories in the Southern Hemisphere events in Australia and New Zealand. The CB1100R was built for a purpose, and from those homologation roots rapidly developed into a stunning street bike.

1982 Honda CB1100R for sale on eBay

There were three distinct models in the CB1100R line, one for each of the three years the bike was in production. This is a “C” spec machine, as the “B” was released in 1981, and the “D” model in 1983. And while the CB1100R line appears to be the same across the years, there are many differences and several non-interchangeable parts between series. Such is the pace of race bike development. While the original model had but a half fairing and exposed engine, the “C” model (as seen here) and “D” model had full fairings and aluminum fuel tanks. But even then the fairings were not the same, and were not interchangeable. The dash layouts were different, and incorporated different mounting elements as well. To find an original CB1100R in stock spec that is correct for its year can be difficult – especially considering the few numbers produced (just 1500 worldwide in 1982).

From the seller:
CB1100R C TYPE
VERY GOOD CONDITION WITH GENUINE EXHAUST
RUNS PERFECTLY
New service including carbs cleaning
I CAN HELP FOR SHIPPING WORLWIDE

Despite being designed as a racer, the CB1100R is no featherweight. Expect the reported 115-120 HP to push at least 515 pounds (dry) of weight around. That number goes up considerably with the addition of enough oil to fill the large sump, and just shy of 7 gallons (!) of high octane fuel. With 10:1 compression and an aggressive cam, this bike relies on good fuel. Engine bits that are gold in color are actually painted magnesium to save weight, and the whole package rides on 18″ Comstar wheels with period technology dual “piggyback” shocks in the rear. This was a tour-de-force in the day, and remains a classic collectable today.

Based in France, this 1982 “C” model CB1100R is looking for a new home. There is not a ton of detail from the seller, but the pictures show a very well presented example of the breed. The ad states “11,300” for mileage, but it appears from the photos that the odometer shot shows 20,000+ KMs. That should equate to 12k and change in miles, if the maths work out correctly. We don’t see these all that often, and when we do come across one they seem to be a RSBFS fan favorite. So check this one out here, and then jump back to the comments and let us know your thoughts. Does this one get a “Vive La France” from you, or is it just stinky cheese? Good Luck!!

Since none of you believed that, I will have you know I did rock a Joe Rocket suit and Shoei lid back in the day 🙂

You might be asking “Why did dipshit doug use a stock photo for this listing?” I have your answer- because old man Doug’s’ World Wide Web skills let him down on this one. I couldn’t grab the auction site images and place them in a neat, story like fashion for your viewing pleasure :sadface:

There you have it- the inexperienced and throttle junkies need not apply! Oh no, no, no . . . this one has been reserved for a select few. Is this one reserved for you? Are you up for the 135 ponies this DooKattee Killer serves up? Can you still fit into your old Nicky/Joe Rocket 1 piece suit? That last question rules me out because I’m sure I’d pop the zipper and look like a potato on tooth pics! Lord help me.

Again, my apologies for lacking the proper picture skill set and for rambling on about Nicky, Joe, zippers and tooth pics, but the boss has a word count rule or minimum something or other we have to follow- Pfffft!

You’ll need to click the hot link (above) in order flush your mind of the image of me with a busted zipper. Trust me, it’s well worth a look. It’s a nice RC with a really nice Remus exhaust system installed.

Don’t delay because this BIN ends in 1 day and a few hours.

Go on now and Git!

Featured Listing – 1982 Honda CB1100R

Update 12.15.2021: This bike has SOLD to an RSBFS reader! Congratulations to buyer and seller! -dc

Always a fan favorite, this 1982 Honda CB1100R Featured Listing is being brought to us via RSBFS reader Paul. This bike has been in his stable since 1985, and has been relocated to the US and titled in Illinois. That makes this rare homologation model even more rare, as we scarcely see them in the States (the last example that appeared on RSBFS was over a year ago). Values for these models remain strong, and given the age, few number of bikes built over a 3 year period and legendary Honda quality, one can expect values to remain strong for a long time to come.

The CB1100R is an interesting model to be sure. Feeling familiarly like the “F” model released in the States, the R is a very different animal. Sure, the bone structure may be similar, but the CB1100R was built to go racing – endurance racing at that. In the multi-hour segment of racing reliability is favored over outright speed; as the old adage goes, you first have to finish in order to finish first. However you also need power, handling, and a platform that can take good care of the rider for long periods of time. Power – about 115 ponies worth – came from bumping compression and cam timing on the air-cooled, inline four. Engine internals were lightened and blueprinted where possible to ensure longevity on those long, full throttle runs. Handling was aided by what was cutting edge of the day – multi-adjustable front and rear suspension (twin shocks and anti-dive front fork components). The engine was rigidly mounted in the frame in the manner of race bikes as well – great for stiffness, but not ideal for the buzz-free, touring set. Braking was another area of focus, with twin piston calipers up front gripping innovative cast rotors with internal venting. Tank size – as expected for endurance racing – was quite large at just under 7 gallons. Overall the package was a significant success for Big Red – and the bikes are coveted to this day.

From the seller:
1982 Honda CB 1100 R – titled in Illinois

I have owned the bike since 1985. I bought it from a local Honda dealer
who was selling it as a goodwill gesture for a friend of the shop owner.
The owner had brought it from England I believe, titled it here, but
wanted a “new” bike so was selling this one.

More from the seller:
The bike has a total of 11,500 or so miles on it. It has had the front
forks rebuilt, the complete brake system taken down and rebuilt,
replacing any needed parts with original Honda parts. It had the wheels
dismounted and new tires mounted about 6 years ago, on which there is
maybe 700 miles. The chain was taken off, soaked, and reoiled. It comes
with a rear wheel lift, the original tool kit, the original owner’s
manual, copies of the manual (which in reality acts as a shop manual as
it has all the torque values for everything on the bike), a parts manual
for the CB 1100 R models, listing Honda’s part numbers. Some cross over
to American Honda parts, some need a place like David Silver to get
parts. It has just come back from a local dealer who deals in sport
bikes, where the carbs were rebuilt as when I went to start it, it
started, but the carbs poured fuel out from the gaskets. Handle bars
have a ratchet system that allows 0.5 degree adjustments to up and down
setting, and obviously infinite adjustment to front and back setting, to
fit the rider.

More from the seller:
There were only 1500 of these made in 1982 and another 1500 in 1983.
These were the minimal numbers Honda had to manufacture to homologate
them for endurance racing. I very much doubt there are more than 4-5 in
this country presently, since they were never officially imported by
Honda. Per the rules of the day the bike had to be a two seater, and two
screws can be removed to remove the rear tanneau, revealing the rear
seat. There are also rear foot pegs. The exhaust is original although I
have repainted it.

The mechanical condition is excellent. It has been gone over by Honda
guys several times in the time I have owned it, with no defects found.
It is not pristine; there are some “battle” marks on the left side of
the fairing. Otherwise it is intact.

Asking Price: $18,500

The Honda CB1100R tips the rarity scales pretty close in line with other popular homologation models (i.e. RC30). This is simply because all homologation bikes are built with a limited number target in mind (usually just the minimum number of street bikes to qualify the bike for racing). But with the CB1100R that is further limited by the lack of US distribution (Europe, parts of Asia, Australia and New Zealand). Todays 1982 Featured Listing has a long history with the current owner, and looks to be in great condition for the age. If you are in the market, you would do well to give Paul a shout and strike up a deal. This one probably won’t last long. 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

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.
