2003 Honda RC51 For Sale!

2003 RC51 VTR 1000 For Sale on eBay!

Don’t you all think I look pretty good on the VTR? Yup, I was ripping it up that day during the photo shoot . . . had on my new Joe Rocket suit and my custom Shoei lid along with my Miguel DuHamel custom gloves. 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:

However, since the RC51 and Nicky are forever synonymous- I have have a nice picture of Nicky for you to look at while viewing my write-up

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.

1994 Honda RVF 400 For Sale!

Stumbled across this Racing Vee Four 400 while eating my crappy rice and beans lunch. It looked a little lonely so, I thought “Why not show it some RSBFS.com love!”
These are always well received on the site and this one looks to be in pretty good shape with less than 8,000 miles showing.

From the seller
One of a handful in existence in the United States! Get in on this opportunity to own something extremely rare!

Pretty impressive description and pictures eh? I know, I think the pics leave a little to be desired too. But, the upside is this mighty machine is it’s located in eastern PA sort of between Scranton, Allentown and near the little town of Nazareth. We could stop in Allentown and say “Hey!” to Billy then head up to Scranton to see Dwight and then back down to Nazareth to visit my buddy Michael and pick up a hand crafted 6 string. Road trip anyone?


This picture gives me the best insight into the condition of this machine. You can see it has not be restored and does have some of the typical JDM corrosion. It also looks to be bone stock!

Check it out here!

Anyone seen this machine in person? If so, let us know your thoughts in the comment section below.

I took some liberty and searched the site for past Racing Vee Four posts. If you’d like to compare this one to a few others feel free to check them out here!

Cheers!

Featured Listing – 2000 Honda CBR929RR at Seattle Used Bikes !

Update 11.30.2021: SOLD to an RSBFS reader! 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

Superbikes were ultra-competitive in the late 1990’s and Honda got only two or three years out of each re-design of their CBR900RR.  The SC44 generation of 2000-01 gave away a lot of displacement to Yamaha’s fresh R1, but the CBR’s compact and lighter weight design proved their mettle.  RSBFS’ friend Seattle Used Bikes has a super-sharp CBR929RR with a refreshing lack of mods and a long ownership and maintenance history.

RC Wannabe – 2006 Honda CBR600RR with 877 Miles !

Not generally clearing the rarity bar at RSBFS, this CBR600RR caught our eye since it’s for all intents a new bike.  Maybe you’re thinking lighter and would like to sample the state of the supersport art in 2006.

2006 Honda CBR600RR for sale on eBay

Honda brought a host of technical achievements to the CBR600RR, some came with the original 2003 model – like dual stage fuel injection, Unit Pro-link monoshock, and a casting method that reduced the thickness of the frame elements to just 1/10th of an inch.  For 2006 there were new inverted forks ( with radial brake mounts ), revised chassis, and somehow, 22 less pounds.  The fairing, exhaust, and swingarm are patterned to looks like its inspiration, the RC211V GP bike.

Offered by a specialty shop nearby PA’s Susquehanna River, this CBR looks excellent but not perfect.  A bonk or two from the garage elves might lead to a new fender and turn signal, probably still available from big red.  The owner states it’s been brought to running condition, so just a quick rubdown and the new owner will be ready to go – or maybe stay.  Just a couple of notes in the eBay auction:

Only 877 miles !  All original ! 
 
This is a one owner bike that has never been modified. Even the tires are original with nipples, showing how little the bike was used. It has recently been serviced and has been ridden enough to have everything checked out. 
 
Clean and clear, original title in hand. 

To keep team costs down, Supersport rules generally are less flexible on modifications, but something about the way they boiled out made the Honda dominant in World Supersport and Formula Xtreme, if not AMA Supersport.  Chassis tuning got high marks from reviewers in 2006, and most mention the diminutive size of the package, better for younger jockeys perhaps.  Maybe it’s been on your shoulda-woulda-coulda list since real life intervened back then, if so you’re not likely to find a better candidate.  And the Make Offer button is available.

2001 Honda CBR929RR Erion Racing Edition with 525 Miles !

Credit where due, Honda presented an Erion Edition after the race team won back to back AMA Formula Xtreme 600cc Championships in 1999-2000.  Thinking way out over the horizon, this Fort Meyers owner parked this CBR after just a few fill-ups, and it’s ready for the next display opportunity.

2001 Honda CBR929RR Erion Racing Edition for sale on eBay

 

 

 

 

With its third engine change since the FireBlade was introduced, the 929 was even more overquare, fuel injected, and boasting 152 hp at almost 11,000 rpm.  The all-titanium exhaust included Honda’s volume tailoring HTEV system, stretching the torque band.  New for 2001 were USD forks, and a longer swingarm, smoothing out the handling under  power.  A new 17-inch front wheel fit into the revised fairing, which reviewed as a bit less exciting than its rivals.  Though growing from the original 900, every opportunity was taken to keep weight under control, and inch it toward the middle of the machine.

Though a twenty year old superbike priced at a hair less than a brand new one might only be for a superfan, the owner seems to have kept this one beautifully.  With little history to tell or worry much about, the comments are as bold as the graphics in the eBay auction:

ERION RACING EDITION
BONE STOCK
525 MILES
NEVER DOWN OR ANY ISSUES
COLLECTOR QUALITY
ALWAYS STORED IN CLIMATE CONTROLLED BUILDING
COMES COMPLETE
ORIGINAL OWNER’S MANUAL
ORIGINAL TOOL KIT
HONDA EXHAUST RED SCOTCH BRITE PAD

MY COLLECTION IS GETTING OUT OF CONTROL 
NEED TO DOWN SIZE A BIT I HAVE SOME VERY SPECIAL LOW MILE BIKES
I KNOW THIS ISNT FOR EVERYONE BUT IF YOU WANT THE BEST HERE IT IS
BIKE IS SERVICED AND READY TO GO OR MOTHBALL AWAY
 

Erion had some great years with many bold faced names aboard, like Nicky Hayden and Ben Bostrom.  Not sure if the Erion edition was anything more than a graphic exercise, but the 929 needed a little extra help in the showroom during the R1’s run for glory.  Looking forward to this seller’s other auctions if they are all as nice as this.

1992 Honda NR 750 RC40-

1992 Honda NR 750 RC40 For Sale!

Full transparency- This one was tossed around the RSBFS.com headquarters as to whether or not it was a legit ad. When all was said and done, Mike and Donn took a step back and William . . . well, William was too busy looking for the Desitin to really get involved so, they threw the new guy to the wolves.

Is it Live or Memorex? I know some of you are too young to know what that is, but the majority of you will get it. Why am I asking that silly question?

Here is the info from the eBay listing:

From the seller:
For sale is HONDA NR 750 IN RED

YEAR 1992

For serious interest only.
Listing will be on for 7 days : if you are interested Please send messages.

A touch vague for a super rare motorcycle don’t you think? But wait there’s more . . . The seller has zero transactions on eBay. No worries- we all started at 0 on eBay. Right? Okay, maybe not 0 and selling Honda’s Holy Grail. The other interesting thing to note is normally these types of machines attract huge “watched” numbers, but this one is currently flying under the radar because (we assume) of the way it was listed/categorized on eBay.

Nonetheless! Let’s get this show on the road-

In 1992 Honda decided to flex it’s engineering muscle and finally produce a motorcycle with their long researched oval piston design. Obviously, such a task isn’t for the weak of heart or weak pocket books. It’s my understanding that Honda had been working on the oval piston design since the mid-seventies, but for whatever reason, never really pushed it for a production unit. That is of course until 1992 when they released the NR750 RC40 powered by the oval piston V4. Honda went all out with the NR750. Not only did it have oval pistons, it had titanium valves, and 2 titanium connecting rods per cylinder. If I’m not mistaken, the NR750 was also the first Honda equipped with “upside down” forks on a production unit. All of that wizardry didn’t make the NR750 the fastest or the lightest at almost 500#’s. However, that Honda wizardry did assemble one of “THE” most sought after motorcycles in the world. All of my exhaustive searches placed it in the number 2 spot of most desirable and collectable motorcycles- only being eclipsed by Martin’s beloved Britten V1000.

It is literally “Once in a blue moon” when these pop up for sale, but yet, here it is.

Did any of you all notice it’s missing the mirrors? I’m guessing those aren’t easy to locate so, I’m hoping the seller removed them as a precautionary measure.

This machine is the reason RSBFS.com exists.

Check out the unobtainable here!

Cheers!
