1996 Honda NSR 250 MC28

1996 Honda NSR 250 MC28

Location: The OC CL
Mileage: Not stated
Price: $6500.00

Up for grabs is yet another NSR 250 and it was submitted to us by it’s proud owner- Rob.

Rob’s NSR is tricked out with some nice TYGA upgrades such as pipes and dashboard. Although, I’m usually not a huge fan of aftermarket paint jobs and add-ons, I’m really starting to warm up to the idea when it comes to 2-strokes. I can only imagine pulling up to the meeting spot for a Sunday ride or a bike night on a 2 stroke; especially in my neck of the woods. And lets not forget the wonderful musical sound of a dry clutch 🙂

NSR 250 For Sale

What makes this bike special is how exotic it it. It has Single-sided swingarm (aka Pro-Arm), Dry Clutch (with carbon fiber cover) and very unique “credit card” programmable ignition switch.

It’s got aftermarket plastic (brand new) with a really good fit, and Tyga Stainless steel GP exhaust. I also added a Tyga Carbon Fiber dashboard, rear set pegs (not reverse shift), new factory clip-ons and lots of other trick bits.

As you can expect from any 14 year old bike there are a few dings and a repair or two to speak of.

Bike has small dent in tank, but I even know where to get a stock painted matching factory replacement tank. This tank is coated inside though, carbs fully cleaned and petcock and air filter replaced.

Be sure and check out the photo showing the superb welding on the TYGA expansion chambers. There could be a picture of these in Websters for the explanation of “Perfect”

Good luck with the sale Rob!

1987 Yamaha FZR1000 With 6,000 Original Miles In California

This is a mint FZR1000 with 6k original miles!

Bike:  1987 Yamaha FZR1000 Genesis

Location:  Fremont, California

Mileage:  6,000mi

Price:  $2,800 USD

This was the Bike of the Year for 1987 and this bike is, supposedly, in mint condition with only 6k miles.  The seller states that this bike has new Bridgestone’s.  At $2,800; I call this a great price if the condition is accurate.  You’d be unlikely to find a decent example for less than $2,500 let alone a mint, 6k mile, one.  Give this seller a call!  See the bike on Craigslist here.

1995 HONDA NSR 250 MC28

1995 HONDA NSR 250

Location: San Francisco, CA
Price: $8,000.00
Mileage: Unknown

Not too much information about this one, but it looks really nice in the CL photos. These seem to be popping up on a regular basis nowadays and I for one am not complaining. Of course it’s for purely selfish reasons like I want one so bad, but don’t have 8g’s lying around to buy one. Anyone want to trade their NSR for my FZR 400?? Bueller, Bueller, Bueller……. I didn’t think so, but you can’t get what you don’t ask for right?

Here’s the NSR pics:

Qutoe from the listing:

Well taken care of bike with lots of extras FULL JHA GP Pipes with Carbon Canisters
Stock HRC Card and 030 HRC Card and lots more

My buddy Joe, who is a good friend of RSBFS, has told me that the JHA pipes on this bike are a rare piece by themselves. He also tells me that although SS expansion chambers may look good the stock mild steel ones perform better. My ignorant response to him? They look good and fast so they must be just that 😉

Hopefully, we’ll continue to see a steady flow of nice NSR’s and maybe, just maybe I’ll find one in my range. But, if you are currently in the market for one of these baby’s you can click here for contact info

1990 Kawasaki ZXR 400

1990 Kawasaki ZXR 400

Location: San Francisco, CA
Mileage: 29,000
Price: $5,500

Kawasaki ZXR 400

Since I’m a huge fan of both Kawasaki and 400cc motorcycles this one really does it for me. The pictures don’t do much for it, but is typical for a CL post and should be expected. But, if you have an interest in a bike like this, you owe it to yourself to check it out. Because the opportunity to pick one of these up doesn’t come around very often.

These have roughly 60hp, came equipped with USD forks, a 6 speed transmission and generally rank higher on the “Trick” scale when compared to a 90 FZR400. If I could have my druthers I’d pick the ZXR400 over my beloved FZR, but since the ZXR’s weren’t offered state side we were never afforded the choice. I think I can count on one hand how many of these we have seen on RSBFS and a few of those were across the pond.

From the CL listing:

Up for sale is a rare kawasaki zxr-400, this is is 1990 H2 model with red/black/ silver paint. You will not see this one around very often. This bike has a clean title, and california registration. The current registration is paid up till next year.

Background about this bike:

The current mileage is 47,xxxx km or 29,xxxx miles, I am the third owner of this bike and have barely ridden it since i owned it. Because of the rareness of this bike I have been riding it less than ten times a year. The carburetors have been serviced and runs really well. Under my ownership, the bike has not been down, but the first owner has had low speed downs once on each side and everything has been repaired. The second owner never rode it and kept it in the living room as a trophy bike.

2000 Ducati 996R With 953 Miles In California

This is a very nice looking 996R with less than 1k miles in California!

Bike:  2000 Ducati 996R

Price:  $14,500 USD

Location:  South Lake Tahoe, California

Mileage:  953 Miles

This 996R looks to be completely stock as a bike with under 1k miles should be!  500 of these were made for 2000 and, as the seller states, came equipped with Ohlins suspension front & rear, Marchesini wheels, carbon bits galore, Brembo’s, and a trick Testastretta motor among other things.

We’ve seen these 996R’s and SPS’s go for varying amounts but, this one seems reasonably priced with less than 1k miles and an asking price of $14,500–See our other 996 content here.  If you’d rather have a real homologation/race replica bike over a stickered up, brand-new, R1; have a look at this 996R on Craigslist here.

2001 Ducati 996R With Two Original Miles In Texas

This is another 996R but this one is being sold as-new with only two miles on the odometer!

Bike:  2001 Ducati 996R

Price:  $22,000 USD

Location:  Austin, Texas

Mileage: 2 Miles

This bike is being sold as new with even the shipping covers and stickers remaining on the headlights and turn signals and license plate mount uninstalled.  The seller states that this bike has never been started–other than when it was at the factory–and has always been stored in a climate controlled office/home.  The bike was purchased through BCM Motorsports and includes uninstalled 102db Termignoni silencers but does not mention other items included with the bike when new–I’d expect they’re included but ask the seller.  The asking price of $22,000 doesn’t seem completely outrageous given what you’re buying (The self control of the seller).  If you missed out on these 996R’s in 2001 or foolishly rode the one you did get, have a look at this one on here.
