2005 MV Agusta F41000 Ago

Another week goes by and another Ago has appeared on Ebay.  You know, the styling on these things hasn’t changed much over the years but when you see nice clear detailed pictures like these you realize just how pretty these bikes are.

From the auction:

FS:  2005 MV Agusta Ago in exceptional condition with  6,914 miles, all services up to date by Renassaince Cycles in Tucson. Currently fitted with RG3 performance exhaust, mid-pipe and EPROM.  Factory ‘Kit’ including; Certificate of Authenticity, Ago cover, Rear workstand, Grip cover set.

Additional MV SP Carbon rear hugger and tinted windscreen.  Owners manual has autographed signatures of both Claudio Castiglioni and Giacomo Agostini. Standard exhaust and all other stock parts included.  I am the original owner.

This is number 279 of 300 that were built worldwide.  Less than 60 of these were imported to the United States.  A true collectors peice as it a commemorative model built to honor the great champion Giacomo Agostini for all his world titles with MV Agusta.


The bidding has already started but you.

1990 Honda RC30 VFR750R

1990 Honda RC30 VFR750R

Location: LA, CA
Price: 22,000
Mileage: Low(!)

It never ceases to amaze me how owners of such rare bikes don’t take the time or put little, if any, effort in to selling them. Point in case is today’s CL find.

Have a look:

Low mileage CA bike, one owner, ready to ride. Low serial number.

That’s it folks! You want to buy it?

You can make contact here.

Oh but wait.. there’s another one for sale in San Francisco with no pictures, but the seller does offer a phone number. I don’t think it’s the same one, but it sounds very similar in specs.

2006 Aprilia RS125

2006 Aprilia RS125

Location: Pensacola, FL
Miles: 1,450
Price: $6,500

Stumbled across this little diva while trolling CL for RSBFS. I’d say it fills our needs pretty well and the ad says its ‘street legal’ so I assume it has a title of some sort. It’s a little on the pricey side, but for the most part a title is worth 1,500 to 2,000 clams on any given day which would put this one right in the mix.

Aprox 1,450 miles – Street legal
Showroom Kept
Many extra’s added

I definitely prefer this scheme over the orange Spanish one..

The ad is a little scarce on info, but you can contact the seller via the CL ad here.

1989 HONDA CB1 400

1989 Honda CB-1 400cc

Location: Lake Geneva, WI
Mileage: 10,976
Price: $1,850.00

Never heard of a CB-1? Well get in line because most people haven’t either.. These were largely over shadowed by the Hawk NT-650 and the mighty FZR 400 back in the day. Like all stateside 400’s the CB1’s lived a short life due to American’s “bigger is better” attitude towards motorcycles, but they have quite the cult following. These little CB’s pump out 55hp and make for a great urban assault ride.

Honda CB-1 400

My wife saw me writing this and said she really liked the color. She’s been itching for a small bike to putt around on and this one would surely fit the bill. Lake Geneva is a great little town full of energy and fun things to do. If you decide to pick this one up I recommend picking it up in person and making a weekend of it.

So it has an intermittent Tach, needs a new pair of shoes and a set of fork seals. This is a great bike being offered at a super price.

Here is some info on the CB-1 400

1988 Ducati Paso Limited In Georgia

1988 Ducati Paso Limited In Georgia

We’ve had a few of these rare Paso’s on RSBFS lately and here is another.

From the ad:

 1988 750cc L twin Ducati Paso LIMITED. Very rare one of 50 imported into the USA and suposedly to Ducati enthusiasts only and it is unlikely that all are remaining. The bike was special for its unique white paintwork but it was also documented the engine build received special attention at the factory. Approx 5500 miles pretty much all orginal however the original fiberglass bodywork has some stress cracks in several places. This bike is valued higher than other Pasos and is highly regarded in the Paso global community. The bike needs nothing and can be ridden without any work required. Tires and brakes are good. Comes with clean GA title and factory manual. Little has been written about the Limited but from what I understand that the Limited is the single most rare “customer” Ducati produced in the 80’s. Frame numbers were nos 25-75. Mine is nos. 65. $3995 obo

 If you are wondering what makes the Paso Limited different I found this list on a Ducati forum.  I can’t vouch for how accurate it is but it does kind of follow what the seller has in his ad.

The mechanical differences include:
1) Ported Cylinder Heads
– Including special tapered Valve Guides
2) Flat-top Pistons (same compression ratio) allowing unique Combustion Chamber
3) 40mm Exhaust Header
4) Special “Off-Road Only” Silentium Silencers
5) Different Spec Webber Carb

Check it out on Craigslist Atlanta here.

2002 Ducati 998s Bostrom race replica

2002 Ducati 998s Bostrom #59 of 155

Mileage: 4720
Price: $12899
Location: Reading, PA

Submitted to by it’s owner is this fine piece of Ducati exotica. Oozing with Carbon Fiber, Ducati mystique, racing heritage and Ben Bostroms signature on the tank.

It looks to be in great shape and well cared for. The Bostrom 998s is on my short list of bikes to own and I’ll be searching for one of these right after I own a 2 stroke for a year or two. So, if you’ve already owned a few of your dream bikes and the Bostrom 998s is the next one on your list now is your chance. Jami has it priced fair at $12,899.00 (why not make it 12,998? 🙂 ).

The seller also has a few other Ducati’s for sale and has made a nice video on youtube.

You can view the CL ad here

No, I didn’t forget to embed a Youtube video of Ben working his magic on board the L&M Ducati during his glory days..

And for the fun of it…. Here is were old Ducati’s go after they’ve been retired and their racers go back to AMA..
