1997 Bimota SB6R rolling Sport Bike Art!

1997 Bimota SB6R

Location: Annapolis, MD
Price: $12,000
Mileage: 1400

Found this sweet SB6R today while trolling CL ads. This one looks to be in stellar shape and ready to display or properly flog on your favorite set of twisty roads. I know these have the GSXR 1100 motors and when you pair that with Bimota’s weight saving engineering it can only make this one rip!

Check it out and pick it up here

I haven’t ever seen one of these up for sale; likely because only 10 or so were brought into the US.

1997 Bimota SB6R with 1400 original miles. Kept as a show and display bike, maintained but seldom ridden.

Needs an appreciative rider, these bikes were hand built in Rimini, Italy by craftsmen, using only the finest components. Brembo brakes, Ohlins shocks, Paoli carbon-fiber forks in a hand-built chassis with scads of CF, alloy and Ti components stock. The SB6R has the water-cooler 1100 Suzuki GSXR motor that was tweaked to put out another 10% above stock, making this the fastest, quickest bike that Bimota has ever built; and it still handles like a dream.

This bike is stock and unmolested, making it very collector desireable.

1995 Bimota Tesi 1D EF With 2,689km In California

This is a Bimota Tesi 1D in California!  Located in Folsom, California is a 1995 Bimota Tesi 1D EF with 2,689km (1,670mi).  This bike is #3 of 25 and has all new rubber hoses and some small upgrades.  The seller is brief and doesn’t provide much information but, it is a Tesi and if you’re looking for one, you only need to know where to go.  This was the last year for the 1D with some stragglers still being sold into 1996.  The 1D features a Ducati sourced 904cc V-Twin, front swingarm with a, front & rear, Marzocchi shock.  I’ve included a stock photo to remind anyone who may have forgotten what a Tesi looks like.  See the ad on Craigslist here.

1996 Aprilia RS250 street version

1996 Aprilia RS250 street version with only 5246 miles on the clock

Found this super sweet RS250 while trolling CL tonight and thought I’d throw it up. I know we have a lot of RS fans that follow RSBFS and this one looks like a good one. Apparently, it is licensed and registered and the seller is looking for offers. This could be the opportunity that you’ve been waiting for if you’re in the market for a low mileage Ape RS250

Aprilia RS 250 for sale

Super rare, silver on silver, 1996 Aprilia RS250 with current CA tags (I had no problem re-registering it in my name). This bike is awesome! I bought this bike with the intention of never selling it, however, things have changed and I am heartbroken to have to put it back on the market. 5246 miles. Gianelli pipes with recently repacked silencers. Brand new tires. Please email me if you are serious. Make me an offer that will keep me from putting it on eBay next week.

If you pick this one up please let us know

1990 Ducati 851 Strada With 2,565 Miles In California

This is an excellent 851 in California with less than 3k miles!

Bike:  1990 Ducati 851

Price:  $8,000 USD

Location:  Santa Barbra, California

Mileage:  2,565mi

Located in Santa Barbra, California is a 1990 Ducati 851 with 2,565 original miles.  The seller states that this bike is perfect and and has always been cared for and garaged.

This price looks to be correct for the low mileage as we’ve seen other examples, with more miles, at or very near this price.  See the other posts we’ve had for 851’s in the past here.  See this current 851 on Craigslist here.

2006 Ducati Paul Smart 1000 LE Collector Bike

2006 Ducati Paul Smart 1000

Location: Columbus, OH
Price: $10799.00
Miles: 600

Had this one forwarded to us last night and it looks capital “A” Amazing! Sporting only 600 miles in 4 years this one is ready to continue it’s current journey of being a piece of art or you could finish the break in and hit the road in classic style.

I am selling my 2006 Ducati Paul Smart Limited Edition bike with less than 600 miles on it. It is gorgeous, bone stock and near perfect. I also have all the swag sent to me by Ducati when I pre-ordered the bike 5 years ago. Only 500 of these bikes made it to the US, and I paid over $15,000 for it new. It won’t be long before it will be going for more than that.

1997 Ducati 916 Monoposto

1997 Ducait 916

UPDATE: Sold – Sold – Sold!

Okay, so not very high on the rare scale, but I’ve always had a soft spot for this particular model. So- I decided to do a RSBFS ‘quick spot’ and show it some love.

This one has more shine than the sun and looks to be in stellar shape. I’d say in about 5-10 more years these will be gobbled up like hotcakes on Sunday morning as the now 30 year old’s start turning 40 and have their mid-life crises and say “Man, I wish I would have bought one of these when…..”

Jump to the CL ad here

Stock bike… not hopped up or customized. Not covered with aftermarket carbon fiber. Runs great. Sounds amazing. Maintenance records since new. 19,350 miles. Full service (including belts) at 18,000 miles. New Pirelli Diablo Rosso tires less than 100 miles ago. Barely a blemish anywhere on the bike. You would have to look far and wide to find a nicer early 916. 1997 was the last year with the original graphics and bodywork. Bike currently has HeliBars, a Corbin seat, and Yoshimura carbon exhausts… BUT… it comes with the mint condition stock seat, bars, and exhausts.

First one I’ve seen for sale.  Number 20 or 25 worldwide.  Give the dealer a call, they claim to have a Red Bull edition as well.  Rarity isn’t cheap: they are asking $28,000.  Here is a link to KTM’s page for the bike.  Upgrades appear to be the exhaust system and the Jeremy Mcwilliams replica paint.

Check it out on Craigslist Los Angeles here.

1989 Kawasaki KR-1 250cc 2-stroke

1989 Kawasaki KR-1 250cc 2-stroke screamer

*UPDATE – Ed tells me it sold to the first person who looked at.

Location: Miami, FL
Price: $2,600
Mileage: unknown – but, Ed kindly gives his phone # for any would be buyers to inquire about his bike.

This was submitted by Ed, the owner of this little gem, and he is only asking $2,600 bucks for it! Heck, at that price you can barely by a 49cc scooter. Make the jump to the listing here.

Rare, rare 250cc 1989 KR1 Kawasaki. High rpm screamer, 55 HP / 280pounds. Engine has been tuned, oil injection works, new brake pads, lights & signals good. Cosmetics are OK but would need full paint & polish to make it to restoration level

Bill of sale only, have info on obtaining title.

I think it’s a steal even without a title and current registration.
