Homologation Heartthrob: 1990 Honda RC 30 in Texas!

Warning!

This post is in our archives. Links in this post have been updated to point to similar bikes available to bid on eBay.

For Sale: 1990 Honda RC 30

For such a rare motorcycle, RSBFS readers have been blessed with a relatively large supply of RC30s as of late (check out the latest RC30 written up by Rem HERE. But rather than question why, I prefer to simply oogle and enjoy the bounty. While often placed behind the younger brother RC45 in the performance department, the RC30 remains one of the iconic motorcycles of the homologation genre. That probably explains the constantly rising prices on these bikes.

Located in the Great State of Texas, this VFR750R looks to be as original as they come. Having traversed a paltry 6,894 miles since new, this bike defines the category of “rideable collectable.” Purists will always search out a zero mile example, but here is one that has few enough miles to still be considered relatively new, but not so few miles that it cannot be ridden. And after all, isn’t that the *real* draw of these uber rare steeds?

From the seller:
This is completely original and perfect, less one small rub spot on the fairing from transportation. It is a very small spot on the right side in the light blue area. Please check the detailed picture of the right side it is just below the end of the handlebar. This is not a restoration it is original. New O.E.M. tires, includes the rear stand, tool kit (missing 2 sockets), owners manual and several magazine articles and road tests.

The value of an RC30 has been often discussed on these pages (search RC30 on RSBFS). The floor starts in the $20k range and extends up above the $30k mark (way above that for some optomistic sellers!). This particular bike is sitting at $15k with minimal bidding a reserve firmly in place.

These bikes may peak in price sometime in the future, but that is not going to be any time soon. Until then, this is as secure an investment as anything on two wheels, and probably will out perform real estate and the average 401k to boot!

  • Very interesting. There are at least 4 very good condition RC30’s in here Houston. 2 have come out of hiding, this one is for sale, I expect if this bike selsl for a good price the other one out on display will go up for sale as well.

    These guys have held onto their bikes for a while now, so cashing in while the market is hot is not a bad thing I guess.

    Will watch this one with interest.

  • Stock turnsignals with white bodies?

  • Good eye JasonB….interesting.

  • I own an RC30, so that caught my eye and had me wondering. Obviously not a big deal, but I’ve never seen that one before- must be an owner customization.

  • again, jasonB is right.

    sick bike, would love to own one if they weren’t so overvalued.

  • i had one of the 300 no engine and no mufller this for sale in puerto rico nice for restoration almost everything.
