Engineering Art: 1975 Honda CB750 Yoshimura Endurance Racer

cb front If a bike like this can’t get your heart beating faster I don’t know what will.  You don’t even have to be into race or vintage bikes to appreciate the attention to detail and engineering excellence here.  We use the term “engineering art” with Bimota alot but this Yosh/Honda just stepped up to the top of the podium as far as that is concerned.  Hats off to the seller for providing some beautiful shots of the bike and the story behind it.

Just a bit of the story on it (there is much more on the auction):

The collector who owned this bike for the last 37 years related to us that it was professionally built in 1975 from the frame-up by Yoshimura North, with no expense spared. It is believed that it was built on commission for a privateer race team that wanted to compete in the Bol d’Or 24 endurance race in France, as well as the LeMans 24 hour race. But the team’s efforts never materialized and the bike never went to Europe. Instead, the bike was immediately purchased by the aforementioned collector and drained of all its fluids. It went directly into his extensive art collection and was stored in his living room as a prized piece for the next 3 decades.

From what we were told, Yoshimura built the motor to their full race specs. They fitted their aluminum racing tank and racing saddle. They equipped it with authentic Honda CR750 CR31 carburetors, the CR750 megaphone exhaust and CR750 tachometer. They fabricated a custom aluminum oil tank, used aircraft style oil lines and a heavy duty oil cooler, and fitted an ARD racing magneto. They chose Ceriani forks and triple trees up front, and a Dresda swingarm with Koni air shocks in the rear. The bike rides on amazing Kimtab magnesium wheels and Goodyear racing slicks. Stopping power is provided by Hunt plasma-cut triple discs. Many of the parts on the bike, especially the carburetors, tach, and magnesium wheels are now extremely hard to find and worth quite a large sum in their own right. The bike is fitted with high powered Marchal headlamps, as well as a low-mounted Cibie spotlight on the right front fork. The fit and finish is exquisite, down to the perfectly braided safety wire on various nuts and fasteners.

Yeah, it is that nice.

Be sure to check out the auction as the seller provides a good read on the history of the CB750 race engine.  That must be a beast to kick start.

It’s not an ultra rare CR93 and it’s not dripping with parts from one but damn it, this thing has just enough ‘cool factor’. From the sound of it, it’s not even a finished project so you can still have a little say.

The Ignition system has never been completed so the Machine has never been started.

Can be viewed at my Michigan location by appointment only. Shipping is the responsibility of the Buyer. Pickup only at my location, but will work to assist loading etc.

I know, this isn’t as bonerific as a CR93 engine. The real deal made under 20HP and had a red line of 13,500.

It sounds like the Holy Grail for collectors of the CR93 is the street version. Known to few people at the time, they made 20 street versions.

Track Day Heaven: 2004 Bimota DB5 race bike


For those who participate in the occasional track day, a little masking tape and the removal of mirrors is enough. For others, a dedicated track day bike – usually an inexpensive or well-used model with track-specific changes – is in order. Take that one step further and consider a full blown race bike. If money were no object, would this be your track day weapon of choice?

2004 Bimota DB5R racer for sale on eBay


Starting life out as a DB5R – considered one of the best handling of the air-cooled Ducati chasis available – and fitted with a hi-po, 1178 cc Hypermotard engine built to the hilt, this particular bike is a “cost is no object” excercise for racing. And race it did, purportedly winning several championships. And what better way to ease this mount into retirement than as a spirited track-day ride worthy of envious stares and buckets of drool?

The seller claims to have spent upwards of $100k on this racer, which just goes to prove the adage: If you want to make a small fortune in racing, start with a large one. Fortunately for you buyers out there, nothing depreciates like last year’s (or last decade’s) racer. This bike is on the block for a cool $55,000, or best offer. If you want what looks to be the best of everything, this might be a good place to look. Check it out and let us know what you think! Good Luck!

Cups With A Different Mission: 2000 And 1998 Aprilia RS250’s

rs right

cup right

I’m not convinced that RS250’s get that many “ew’s” and “ah’s” from the RSBFS masses any more but there is no doubt they still sell. I’ll admit I’ve been shocked by a couple of the selling prices (as in high) for titled RS250’s. As for the untitled cup bikes, well, they are a nice inexpensive way to get out on the track on a two stroke. Both ends of the spectrum are represented on Ebay right now.

rs left

The 2000 looks to be a converted cup bike with the paper work to get her off the track. It looks well cared for and has some nice upgrades.

rs right front

I’ve seen that light set up on a few converted cup bikes. If you ever get caught out at night, I wonder if it actually points light where you need it?

From the seller:

00′ Aprilia RS250 Super rare, ultra trick, street legal, twin cylinder, two-stroke street/race bike. Carbon fiber exhaust, steering stabilizer, Brembo brakes, steel braded lines and much more. The Aprilia RS250’s single crank V-twin stroker makes you work for your reward. It hits perfect pitch at 10,500rpm, delivering 55bhp with a sweet punch! The RS250 is simply one of the very best, least-compromised GP style sports motorcycles money can buy! Super light weight and one of the most fun bikes to ride!!!

rs mufflersI know they are Lomas pipes and I’m pretty sure those are the stainless versions. If you’ve ever tried to keep mild steel chambers clean then you might like this upgrade.

This is an extremely rare opportunity to showroom condition fully built 2008 CBR600RR race bike. The list of upgrades and modifications exceeds $30,000.00 there is a full detailed list invoice/receipt from Erion Racing. No expense was spared during this build mainly HRC Honda Racing parts used in the build. After the build the bike was drained and prepped for “long term” dry storage and shipped back to it’s home in Paradise Valley, Arizona where it has been stored in a climate controlled environment.

This is a beautiful machine showroom condition everything is brand new!!

cbr mufflerI don’t think you can argue about the quality of the upgrades but what is she worth?  The BIN is $13,500. I know racing equipment ages practically overnight.  There is an interesting story out there in the world of amateur motocross though, there is a kid racing a 1985 CR250 against all the 2013 equipment and doing quite well. Hmm…..

Replica, Shmechlica: 1992 Harris Yamaha YZR500

God only knows how many hours have been spent by RZ500 owners around the world trying to turn their rides into an all conquering YZR500.  Looks wise, some have come pretty close.  Mechanically, well YZR unobtanium isn’t usually found on Ebay.  Apparently this time it is.  A mere 75,000 GBP can make you the owner of a 1992 Harris/Yamaha YZR500.  It is about as close to works YZR500 you can get without breaking into Wayne Raineys living room.  If you are scratching your head, these were the grid fillers of the early 90’s.  Harris and ROC were provided YZR500 engines to stick in frames of their own designs.  Harris 500’s were produced in much smaller numbers than the ROC versions.


Tell me the story:

 No smoother big bang engine here my friends.  It should be more than enough to wad yourself up by the third turn.

Rapp Attack! 2006 Kawasaki ZXR636 Attack Performance AMA racebike


Listed as Steve Rapp’s Attack Performance Kawasaki for the 2006 season, this Kawasaki ZXR636 might just be the perfect track day weapon. The seller reports that this machine remained in as-raced AMA condition with the expection of a new Attack motor.


Steve Rapp is known for his ability to race practically anything. And although he has only experienced spotty success, his continued effort to his craft is highlighted by his ascention into the CRT level of MotoGP (although he is equally at home on such diverse machinery as the TTXGP electric racers).


From the seller:
A genuine Steve Rapp ATTACK KAwasaki ZXR636. Purchased at the end of ’06 season. Received bike with a new ATTACK motor and many extras. They left all the AMA trick parts on this machine, with papered Dynoed 124 horse power on the ground. (With only premium gasoline in the tank). More horse power available with racing fuel. Bike was on TV, racing in the AMA. Only ridden 8 track days since purchase! EXTRAS: Olius front fork intervals, steering stabilizer, rear sets, Arrow titanium pipes (from motor to end of exhaust pipe/only 2 lbs), spare front and rear wheels (identical to those on bike now), spare ATTACK body work, Dyna Jet pc3 ignition module and quick shifter, Olius rear shock, front brake fade adjuster, spare counter shaft and rear wheel sprockets, quick change rear tire and other quick release items. Originally purchased for $14k back on ’06.


This bike is located in Bakersfield, CA. The opening bid is set at $5,000 with a BIN set at $6,500. I would imagine the reserve is set somewhere between the two. Click the link to check it out here, and then let us know your thoughts. Is this a historic collector’s bike, a cool track day machine, or just no interesting? Hit the comments below and let us know!
