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.

Cheers!

1989 Kawasaki ZX-7 H1 Ninja Completely Original, Signed By Doug Chandler & Scott Russell

A completely original ’89 ZX-7 signed by Doug Chandler and Scott Russell!  Located in Wasilla, Alaska is possibly a one owner 1989 ZX-7 with very low miles.  Pretty much everything on this bike is speculative as they only definitive information is gained from the photos.  The seller does state that he has owned this bike for twenty-one years, making possible that he is the original owner.  The seller does state that this bike is showroom perfect and that the tank has been signed by Doug Chandler and Scott Russell.  Unfortunately, the seller makes no mention of current mileage but this bike does look to be completely original–with a lime green windscreen which could almost be considers stock for the early ’90’s–with either low miles or a very careful owner.  These bike’s didn’t come signed by the boys so it’s very cool especially if you’re only planning on showing this bike.  The asking price of $4,000 is a bit higher than most other ’89 ZX-7’s but, I doubt any of them come anywhere close to this bike.  The seller may have time on his side getting things together as this bike is located in the frigid–and far–north making it a long trip from anywhere but Anchorage.  This is the first year for the ZX-7, it replaced the GPX750 with a new frame and uprated motor.  It wasn’t the most radical 750 out at the time as Kawasaki chose to sell a very good road bike that could be transformed into a race bike not the other way around.  Many of these bikes were dropped, modified, or raced during their short lives so it’s refreshing to see a very nice ZX-7 Ninja alive and well.  See this bike on Craigslist here.  Note:  The ad only lists a phone number for contact so, please be mindful of timezones.

1984 KAWASAKI GPZ-750 TURBO, ALL ORIGINAL !

Ahh the 80’s….. Van Halen, Miami Vice, Parachute pants and don’t forget the “Member’s Only” jacket. I loved the 80’s and still do and in 1984 I was looking to trade in my 1983 GPZ 550 for something bigger. My neighbor, who just happened to own the local Kawasaki shop, was my salesmen. The decision was between this bike and the new GPZ900 Ninja, I really liked the Turbo but something told me he knew more than the press had lead on. He said the Turbo was great but was a bit “undecided” on when the boost would cut in, meaning that you could be in a turn and all of a sudden #$#$%^!! you get an extra 40hp you didn’t want. I took his advise and bought the 900 which ended up in 1985, Bike of The Year. This one’s on Ebay in San Antonio Texas with a “Buy It Now” of $5500, current bid about $2000 and a few days left on auction. It was one of if not THE fastest bike in production that year and got great reviews, even better then their new fuel injected GPZ1100  as it was lighter and a bit more power.

The ad reads:

1984 Kawasaki GPz 750 Turbo (ZX750E1) All original in excellent condition.

First a little background on the 750 Turbo In 1984 this was the fastest production bike in the world it was more powerful then the GPz 1100 but with the weight of a 750. Although many people refer to it as a GPz and it has the 2 engine emblems it is NOT a GPz the true name is ZX750E1 (E1 means turbo) but Kawasaki referred to it only as 750 turbo. It was basically a street legal race bike it used most of kawis racing technology with its uni trac suspension. They are digitally fuel injected and was built with one thing in mind speed… Check out the Kawasaki 750 Turbo presentation video on youtube

 I bought the bike in May ’09 and put about 200 miles on it with no problems, then decided to send it in for a tune up and whatever else it needed to isure it would be reliable and safe for years to come. The work was done at a local shop named cycle rider the mechanic was a old kawi dealer technician that had worked on the turbo bikes since new. Although the bike ran nice and strong I had the entire bike gone through and inspected and had about $2,300 on it Which included: New Bridgestone Battleax Tires front and rear, new brakes front and rear, both new sprockets, new o-ring chain, forks resealed, oil change, air filter, spark plugs, timing chain tensioner, timing chain, valves were adjusted ( these bikes require it as part of schedule maintence), high speed wheel bearings, battery and thats just off the top of my head. since the work was performed ive put over 900 miles on it and still counting bike runs great no problems the only thing that doesnt work is the fuel gauge. I have the original owners manual and tool kit and i also will include a NOS seat cover with the bike.

The bike is All original and is in very good shape for its age just wax it and it looks almost new and the bike has a modern look for its age I get many compliments on its condition and most people dont believe its a 84. The paint is not flawless theres small scratches here and there as usual and some wear on the tank where your legs rub but you have to look close to see. The only visible damage i know of that dont show in pictures are cosmedic and its a small quarter size chip in the upper shroud which can be easily fixed and these a crack in the housing of the boost gauge (no damage to the gauge) all gauges work except for gas. Mechanically i havent had any problems I start it right up and just ride wherever the road takes me the bike runs strong, engine sounds tight and she purrs till the turbo spools its plenty fast and will give u a hell of a ride. I am selling due to slowing work im a contractor and I need the money to finish my GMC Sprint.    I have a clear Texas title in hand … The bike is bein sold AS IS …..the bike is also for sale locally so if it sells i will end the auction.

Click for the Ebay link.

Conclusion; This bike looks really nice in the pic’s, at 23,000 miles it’s not really collector quality in my mind, but add the fact of how original it is does increase the price. These bikes weren’t that much new ($5500) in 1984, I believe the bike was about $4k-ish at that time. Though it is fairly in line with other cool original examples like the Suzuki GSXR’s of ’86, ’87 the decision really comes down to you. It’s not far off and if it can be had in the $4000 range I think it’s a great value that kept well, will just keep edging up in price. “God Bless Texas”.

1991 Kawasaki ZX-7R K1 model

1991 Kawasaki ZX-7R with only 8,461 miles located in San Diego and 1 of only 200 produced for that year. This bike is part of a larger collection that is being thinned out and I’ve noticed several bikes of this collection on ebay. Although this ZX-7R K1 isn’t perfect, it is still a rare motorcycle that deserves a place on RSBFS. It has a reserve, but also has a $6k seems to be the going rate for ZX-7R’s as of late. Alex posted one a few days ago and it was priced about the same so a recent comparison is available should you be in the market.

Update: bike did not sell; bidding ended at $4,450

If you look closely at the pictures that I brought over , you can see where the seller has edited the photos and circled some of the blemishes on the bodywork. I definitely like an up front seller. There are a lot more pictures on the auction if you’re interested in viewing them. I personally prefer a completely stock 7R, but I may not be in the majority on that issue. Some of the things I’ve noticed that have been changed on the bike include painted rims and an after market exhaust has been added. Considering these have Flatside carbs one can only hope it was properly set up for the exhaust. The seller also added a couple of video’s of the bike, which he has done for all of his other bike auctions as well. After you read what the owner has to say give the video’s a look as well.

Being sold to reduce size of large collection.
Getting more into antique bikes.
58 year old owner, former bike wrench and shop owner.
Every effort has been made to show condition of bike with pictures and video.
Can e-mail better, larger pictures directly , on request.
Bike in excellent condition, though no warranty expressed or implied.

In the first video you might notice the endurance race bike headlight set up with one being yellow. That is a nice touch.

Cheers!
