2008 Honda CBR1000RR Corona Extra Honda/Jake Holden Race Bike

If you had the chance to purchase a two year old CBR1000RR AMA Superstock bike for the price of a new one, would you?  Located in Los Angeles, California is a 2008 Honda CBR1000RR from the Corona Extra Honda team ridden by Jake Holden.  Here is what the seller says about the bike’s current set-up:

Super Stock Build Motor with a milled head, cam timing and undercut transmission. 350 miles since rebuild. 157 RWHP on SuperFlow with a well worn slick = Approx 180-185 RWHP on DynoJet with a newer DOT. Mapped for Sunoco 260 GTX 98 Octane. HRC ECU Power Commander III Power Commander Quick Shifter Ohlins 25MM Fork Cartridges (1.0 Springs) Ohlins TTX Shock (115 Spring) HRC Headers FMF Full Exhaust Quick Turn Throttle Vortex Rear Sets Vortex Case Cover Vortex Clip-ons Taylor Made Clutch Cover GPR Steering Damper Galfer Steel Braided Lines Front & Back Hotbodies Bodywork Hotbodies Speed Screen Stomp Grip CRG Folding Brake & Clutch Levers Vortex Fuel Cap Fully Safety Wired Spare set of Hotbodies body work in Corona Extra Honda livery included with purchase. Suspension set up for 200 lb rider. Never dropped or crashed.

This bike appears to be fairly the same as when it left the team just over two years ago.  It would be interesting to know the bike’s history with the AMA team but, it is known that this bike finished 8th in the 2008 Macau Grand Prix with rider Jeremy Toye–The Macau GP photos can be seen here.  This bike is priced at $12,000 putting it just above comparable amateur/club CBR’s which would be correct based on this bike’s history and it’s additional, big name, parts.  This is a race bike from a prominent team but, it’s at the point in it’s life where it’s most useful for amateur and club racing but, if a collector can snatch it up before someone who will actually use this bike in anger it should last like it is for some time.  See the Sport Rider article on this bike here.  If you’d like an AMA Supersport bike to call your own, see this one on the WERA forum here.

2006 NCR (Ducati) Millona R #14 Of 30 In Arizona

What to do if you’ve grown bored of Bimota’s and Ghezzi-Brian’s, I would think a NCR Millona should do the trick!  Located in Scottsdale, Arizona is a 2006 NCR Millona R with 2,373 miles.  NCR is an Italian company known for outfitting Ducati riders with everything from aftermarket rear wheel nuts to full titanium frames.  NCR started in 1967 producing parts to improve the Ducati 250 twins then went on to produce parts/bikes for Mike Hailwood to win the Formula 1 World Title on and Ducati’s WSB effort.  In 2005, the Millona became the first bike that NCR designed and produced to enter production.  The top shelf Millona, the One Shot, weighs in at an unbelievable 264lbs.  Here is what NCR has to say about the Millona:

MILLONA aims at a specific market niche. It is meant for those who can appreciate a unicum, a high-class article, for those who love owning art or particularly precious watches, but most of all it is meant for those who share a passion for mechanic and technique in their purest form, for race lovers who get on the track to race like their idols, who have Ducati and the “desmo” in their DNA: they are the Ducatisti.

Each MILLONA is entirely hand built, by NCR technicians, with utmost attention and care for the smallest detail and particular.

NCR managed to built the only, true, thrilling racing bike.

Here is what the seller has to say about this particular example:

Air cooled 2 valve Desmodromic 1100 cc Ducati L Twin
All bolts/fasteners titanium
Big bore kit with 1078cc Pistal pistons
Ducati Performance race cams
Heads ported, polished, flowed
Crank lightened, balanced
Light weight flywheel
Ducati Performance WSB Close Ratio Gearbox ($4,500 upgrade)
EVR slipper clutch
Sand cast magnesium timing case cover
Vented magnesium clutch side case cover
Carbon fiber airbox with carbon fiber ram air snorkels
Titanium clutch cover

ChroMoly trellis frame by NCR
Handmade aluminum swingarm by NCR (weighs 3.8 kg)
Triple clamps from billet aluminum by NCR
Carbon fiber subframe
Carbon fiber faring, gas tank, seat cowl,
Carbon fiber oil catch can, front fender, belly pan
Carbon fiber wheels by BST (racing version, not DOT street wheels)
WSB Brembo Monoblock calipers from billet w/ titanium pistons ($5,800 per set)
Brembo 2 titanium piston rear caliper from billet
Braking Wave rotors 300mm front, 200mm rear
Titanium / Aluminum Rearsets
Titanium / Aluminum Clip-ons
Dunlop NTec Slicks (med front, soft rear) new
Ohlins forks black anodized (same forks as 1098R)
Ohlins shock
Quarter turn throttle
Selection of sprockets to cover all ratios.
MyChron dash

The seller does mention that there are some slight imperfections that are hardly noticeable but are there such as light rock chips and light scratching.  The Millona R is the mid-level bike, essentially, the “S” version as Ducati would have it.  The asking price is $37,000 which isn’t bad compared to the original price of over 65,000–And yes, that’s a R7 in deprecation.  A Zard full titanium exhaust system is also available for an additional $3,300.  The seller states that this bike has been meticulously maintained.  See the NCR website here.  See the Pro Italia information for the Millona here.  Lastly, see the actual bike listing on here.

1984 Yamaha RZV500R In California

Available in California is a RZV500R; the lightweight, domestic market, version of the RZ500.  Located in Salinas, California is a 1984 Yamaha RZV500R with no mileage listed.  This bike has no paperwork and lacks any in depth description other than that it “…is near showroom condition.”

The RZV bested the standard RZ with an aluminum frame,  different forks, aluminum clip-ons and some other additional items bringing the weight down to 20lbs under a stock RZ.  However, everything wasn’t rosy with the motor also de-tuned for the Japanese market and limited to only 64hp.  The asking price for this example is $9,995: Putting it solidly in the middle of what we’ve seen for standard RZs.  However, this bike would be one very special two stroke if you could remove the limiter (new exhaust perhaps) and find the title for it, then I’d expect to see the asking price moving with a strong upward trend depending on mileage. See this bike on Craigslist here.

Honda RVF400R Track Bike In Colorado

This is a seriously modified RVF400R finished in Rossi Repsol colors.  Located in Aspen, Colorado is a Honda RVF400R that is set up for race use but does look to have lights even though it isn’t titled.  It would probably be best to let the seller explain this bike:


This motorcycle was built from the ground up to be the fastest, lightest, best handling RVF400 in the USA. Purchased as a Japenese import from GPC Moto in Sacremento, CA in Fall 2003, this bike was completely stripped down and rebuilt by BRG Racing (also in CA). In a colaberative effort by BRG Racing, RLR Motorsports of England, and Jack Silverman Racing of Aspen, this bike took two race seasons and a total of six years to perfect.

-One of only three HRC Labratories Factory motors in the US. Purchased new in crate from Jack Silverman Racing, proffesionally broken in at BRG Racing, then tuned using many trade secrets and custom go-fast bits from RLR Motorsorts. ALL ENGINE INTERNALS HAVE BEEN CRYOGENICALLY FROZEN FOR DURABILITY.
-This bike was used as the prototype to develope the first and only reliable 1mm overbore kit for the RVF, which added 8hp and noticable torque.
-With over $50,000 invested, there is way too much to list, so please e-mail with questions and picture requests.


Now, this bike does sound to have some serious kit in it that I have no knowledge of so I’m not in a position to comment.  However, I can confirm that when you start making one off race parts the bill ads up quickly so it isn’t a surprise that the seller claims to have so much into this bike.  Sadly, the bike isn’t titled.  The asking price of $12,500 is  far higher than we’ve seen any RVF at but, again, this bike includes some very serious aftermarket parts and a substantial spares package.  If this project interests you, see this very beautiful RVF on Craigslist here.

1996 Honda RS125

1996 Honda RS125 racer

Okay so you don’t have a spare $6,000 lying around for the perfect 98 RS125 that I posted yesterday. How about $4,000 for another great looking RS125? This one gets two thumbs up and extra bonus points for an awesome paint job. Anthony “Go Show” Gobert would be proud of this tribute bike as it is painted to match his Suomy helmet design. Shouldn’t this bike’s number plate read ‘420’ instead of 944? Hmmm…. oh never mind…

Have a look:

Pretty sweet eh? Although this one doesn’t have an extensive spares package it has plenty to get you going. It is being sold with the following spares:

Wheels/Rains/Warmers, Stands, A kit body/Airbox, Dbl Bubble Screen, Dunlops w/ one wknd. and more. I will also include original bodywork and a custom folding spare wheel stand (pit stand)

This one was listed for $4,500 a little more than 2 weeks ago and has since been lowered to $4,000.00. Don’t delay if you’re on the hunt for a sweet track bike. It looks like the owner is a detailer so you have to assume it’s squeeky clean. Owner states that he needs it gone to help pay for a new house so if you can help a brother out, jump on over to the USGPRU classifieds and give him a shout.

Since we’re talking ‘Go Show’ I figured I would complete it with a video tribute to him. Here he is on board the Muzzy ZX7rr battling with John Kocinski on the Ducati.
