1996 Kawasaki Ninja ZX7RR N1 Homologation Special- For Sale

1996 Kawasaki Ninja ZX7RR N1

Location: Mississauga, ON, CA
Mileage: 27,538 kil / 17,100 miles
Price: $7,500.00 Update 10.19.2011: Now Reduced to $6000 CDN!

Up for your consideration is a very nice example of Kawasaki’s last 3/4 sized homologation super bike.

I’ve always been a fan of Team Green and the N1 is tops on my list of bikes to own- someday.

From the seller:

For sale is an almost perfect example of the ZX7 N1.

For those who don’t know, the N1 was the ZX7 homologated for superstock racing and came with a wide array of race-oriented features out of the box. Just 20 of these bikes were imported into Canada!

The N1 is very different from the standard ZX7R, featuring
– RR Forks
– RR Rear shock
– 6-pot Nissin calipers
– Adjustable swingarm pivot
– 41mm Flatslide carbs
– Close-ratio gearbox
– Solo seat

Also note that the ZX7 comes with a slipper clutch. This N1 is entirely stock except for a very aggressive sounding Hindle carbon fiber full system exhaust which helps the bike breathe better and shed 10 pounds. Furthermore, for the collectors out there, this bike’s VIN ends in 748 which is also the displacement of the engine 🙂

Now, being a race bike the N1 shines at high speed. Everything from the twisting the throttle to dropping into corners is surgically precise. A sunday blast in the back roads or on the track is exactly what this bike was made for.

This bike runs smooth/strong and has been meticulously cared for. You will be hard pressed to find a regular ZX7 this clean, nevermind a N1 so I won’t sell it to just anyone.

And there you have folks- I would like to add a few things about the N1.

1. These also have adjustable steering heads
2. They have steel gas tanks whereas the K and M models had aluminum tanks.

#2 isn’t such a big deal, but #1 was only offered on the 1996 N1’s. I would also like to add it required special race kit parts to do it.

While horsepower was relatively unchanged across the three models of Kawasaki homologation bikes the N1 represents the culmination of all things that had been learned. The N1’s were as trick as any in 1996 with the slipper clutch, adjustable swing arm and steering head angle, huge brakes, 41mm flat slide carbs and close ratio transmission. Heck, you’d be hard pressed to find any motorcycle in today’s offerings with those specs.

Have a look-

If you’re in the market for a collectable homologation special don’t hesitate because this one is priced right and won’t last long.

Good luck with the sale!

1994 Honda RVF RC45 Homologation Super Bike For Sale!

1994 Honda RVF RC45 Homologation Super Bike For Sale-

Location: Anaheim, CA
Miles: 7,548
Price: $26,900 $25,900 no reserve!

Update 4.19.2011:Due to a non-paying bidder (aka scum of the earth), this RC45 is back. Links and price updated. Hopefully she finds a new home this time. -dc

Que the Angels and release the White Doves-

For me the 45 is the pinnacle of Honda Homologation Super Bikes and I’m well aware of all the debate that might ensue from the 30 guys. I know 30’s won more races, I know they have impossible to get hand laid fiberglass bodywork, Ti con rods etc… I still like the 45’s better 🙂

RSBFS.com knows a little history on this bike as it was part of the Seattle Homologation Super Bike Collection at one time. We know the current owner and we know he is sad to see it go. You’ve seen several of his bikes grace the cover RSBFS.com over the past few years. Those bikes have included a couple NSR’s and a sweet ZX-7RR

Like most collectors, pride of ownership was taken seriously with this one and you can certainly tell it by looking at the pictures. These don’t come around as often as the 30’s (flame suit on) and when they do you can usually expect the price to be in the high 20’s to low 30’s for the good one’s. The best of the best usually hit mid 30’s. The cheapest one I know of was a super low mileage salvaged title bike with carbon bodywork and it sold for 18ish(?). I think this one is priced spot on and would look great sitting next to my 94 NSR. I’m about $26,599.00 short can anyone help a brother out?

From the seller:

LOW MILES AT 7,548 AND RUNS PERFECT!!

NO ENGINE MODS HAVE BEEN DONE TO THIS BIKE AND IT HAS NEVER BEEN DOWN.

THE FOLLOWING THINGS HAVE BEEN DONE
-REAR FENDER WAS CUT FOR MORE A SPORT LOOK.
-THE TURN SIGNALS WERE ALSO REPLACED FOR MORE SLEEK LOOKING ONES. FOR THE COLLECTORS OUT THERE I HAVE THE OEM TURN SIGNALS AS WELL AS A OEM FENDER THAT IS BRAND NEW SO THE BIKE COULD BE 100% STOCK

IT HAS A VERY STOCK LOOKING TWO BROTHERS SLIP ON EXHAUST THAT MAKES THE BIKE SOUND GREAT!! I ALSO HAVE THE STOCK EXHAUST I THINK BUT NOT 100% SURE

LASTLY THE BIKE HAS THE STOCK WHEELS ON IT. FOR 1,000 MORE I WILL INCLUDE THE ULTRA LIGHT AND SWEET LOOKING MARCHESINI WHEELS (ON BIKE CURRENTLY) IF NOT I WILL PUT THE STOCK WHEELS BACK ON THE BIKE.

THIS BIKE IS TITLED AND REGISTERED IN CA UNTIL FEB 2012!! SO ITS GOOD TO GO!!

Yesterday was a good day for homologation collectors when it was published that Honda might be producing another LE Super Bike. Other than Ducati’s yearly LE offering and the 2006 Yamaha R1 LE it’s been a long, long time since we’ve seen a real Homologation offering from the Big 4. I for one would welcome the new bike and I would have to believe it would only help the value of the previous LE offerings.

If you’ve been lurking and waiting for one of these to come along now is your chance. As I mentioned before- these don’t come around that often and there aren’t that many in the first place.

Good luck with the sale-

1996 Kawasaki ZX 7RR N1 Homologation Muzzy Special

1996 Kawasaki ZX 7RR

Location: Anaheim, CA
Mileage: 5,835
Price: $8,500.00

What better way to follow up yesterdays 91 ZX 7R post than to post the final chapter in Kawasaki Homologation Super Bike production models.

For me the N1’s represent the ultimate in the Homologation era. I know they didn’t receive all the glitz and glamor like the RC’s, OW’s and GSX-RR’s, but I’m Team Green through and through. There’s no better color combination than Team Green and purple. I used to flip through the rags and drool over these. Someday before I’m old and crusty I will own this particular model of ZX 7.

On with the show-

This is another one of Nathans bikes up for sale and as usual he tells me it is in perfect shape and running order. I think the pictures tell the story and if not just hit Nathan up and ask all the questions you want.

The highlights of the N1’s include
-Adjustable steering geometry
-Adjustable swing arm pivot
-41mm Flat slide carbs
-Close ratio gearbox
-Solo tail section
-6 pot front brake calipers

Although, the N1’s didn’t gain any horsepower from the factory with the larger carbs they certainly had more potential under a set of knowledgeable hands such as Rob Muzzy’s. The N1’s also carried a few more pounds over the previous homologation models, but had upgraded suspension to handle it.

From the seller:

Yep you are seeing right!! a 1996 Kawasaki ZX-7RR Muzzy special edition!! There were only 500 of these made ever not just in the USA but total I am told as they are numbered. This is one of the most sought after bikes of this time.

This bike has 5,835 miles only!! It’s in PERFECT shape!! Thats right it gets no cleaner than this. This bike also runs perfect.

Even look at the seat cowl pad its perfect!!

Things that have been done to it are tail section chopped for way more aggressive look

Put in brand new LED rear brake light that has the turn signals built in as well you have to see looks so awesome at night!!

LED front signal light flush mounted to look cleaner.

Now for you collectors out there that want a stock collector bike that is no problem cause with the bike comes with a brand new OEM fender if you want to make it stock again as well as the stock rear light and of course the stock signal lights which can all be put right back on if you want it to be just like it came off the showroom floor.

No trades please I am only selling because I have hurt my knee and can no longer ride without pain.

I’m saddened that I have to let this one pass me by, but I’m sure someone who likes them as much as I do will pick this one up. If you’re interested give Nathan a call and he’ll be happy to answer all of your questions.

Good luck with the sale!

UK Kawi Homologation Specials: 1992 And 1994 ZXR750R’s

UK Kawasaki Homologation Specials: 1992 And 1994 ZXR750R’s

Here are a couple beauties courtesy of my Aussie hook up Chris.  Why couldn’t that red/white/green 94 be a little closer to home?  Me like.  Looking back through the RSBFS computer files here at RSBFS Plaza, we have had a nice steady stream of clean ZXR750R’s over the past year.   These two continue that tradition.  The 92 is a low mile bike, the 94 is higher mileage but carries that very unique paint.  I’m a Suzuki guy through and through but this is one of those bikes that I’d jump at the opportunity to buy (just need it on the same continent).

——————————————————————————————————

 

Man, I wish the Japanese manufacturers would get back to making homologation specials.  Maybe they will never come back since a lot of race series have been steadily moving to production based bikes.  Their race features were a waste on the street  but who would turn their nose up at a chance to have one?

I bet this is what you are after, right?  I’m kind of partial to the aluminum tank.  Women like shoes, I like tanks.

 

 Details, details:

Here we have a genuine Kwasaki ZXR750 M1 1994 m reg: 121 BHP. This is Kawasakis version of the rc30, 0w01, rc45, gsxr750k, Comes as standard with the flat slide cr carbs, alloy fuel tank, close ratio gearbox, high compression pistons, race cams etc etc, Fitted with a muzzy exhaust, good tyres, These zxr750 are now becoming a collectors bike and this particular machine would look good in anyones collection, Also comes with lots of reciepts old MOTs original factory workshop manuel, UK bike not an import, Bought from Daytona motorcycles in London, Part exchange welcome.

Good looking behind!  It has just over 30,000 miles on it but you sure don’t see that color scheme often.  The bike is listed as a classified ad and the asking price is roughly $7,500.  .

—————————————————————————————-

The more common green/blue/white but it still has those classic ZXR good looks.  This is a slightly older 1992 but it has only covered 9,500 miles.  I think they need some larger license plates in the UK.  I can’t quite see that…..from space.

A little salesmanship:

This is a rare and incredibly well kept Kawasaki K1, which if you know your bikes is a very Special and Collectable bike. It was introduced for Homologation in to the World Super Bike Series, which of course it Won against the likes of the fabulous Honda RC30.

  

What set the K1 appart were the following changes, which transformed an average bike into a Razor Sharp Racing Machine:

  

*Flat Slide Carburettors

*Revised Camshafts

*Fully Adjustable Suspension

*Magnesium Engine Covers

*121 Brake Horse Power

*Single Seat only 

*Close Ratio Gearbox

*Hand Welded Aluminium Fuel Tank

  

Recently fitted with Diablo Corsa 3 Tyres and new Front Brake Pads. No dents or scratches present but a couple of small chips on the rear wheel. Not much in the way of service history but plenty of old mot’s to confirm the mileage. If you wanted one of these machines for your collection, and you want the best then this is it.

 

How does roughly $6,400 sound for this one?  Sounds like a price where I’d be making more room in my garage.  This bike is also listed as a classified ad and you have the option of making an offer. .

Now I need some help from some UK readers.  Both bike ads say they have previous MOTS.   Why are old MOTS important?  Are they showing past maintenance on the bike?

1992 Ducati 851 For Sale Very Low Miles

1992 Ducati 851 with Less Than 2000 Miles!

Update 8.9.2010: SOLD!

Comments from the seller:

All original -except for the addition of the booming Gi.Co.Moto twin pipes for that wonderful “Sound of Thunder” music from the Desmo V-Twin engine.


1988 Bimota YB6 For Sale Perfect Condition

1988 Bimota YB6

Update 8.9.2010: SOLD!

Comments from the seller:

(oh….this one will scoot alright!!).

Growls like a mean-ass junk yard dog.


1988 Bimota YB4E.I. For Sale

1988 Bimota YB4E.I.

Comments from the seller:

Take a look at this sexy thing……probably my favorite Bimota of all time. This thing is such a work of art. The 1988 YB4E.I. model released after Bimota took the last ever TT-F1 title in ’87.


Graves Yamaha AMA Formula Extreme R7-1 For Sale

Graves Yamaha AMA Formula Extreme R7-1

Update 8.9.2010: SOLD!

Comments from the seller:

Graves Yamaha AMA Formula Extreme R7-1 raced by Damon Buckmaster (AUS). YEC factory kit EVERYTHING from frame to swingarm to bracing to chassis to radiator to engine and every part on it. Adjustable swingarm pivot, steering stem, ride heights, etc.

Stroker 1080cc full-on SuperBike factory engine and every special YEC Kit factory item from the Yamaha WSBK team. 190hp and the best SBK chassis available back when Superbikes were Superbikes (and not warmed-over street bikes). This thing is light and goes like a missile.

The R7-1 was actually BANNED from AMA competition after it laid waste to the Formula Extreme class back in the days before the AMA series scuttled the class because the FX bikes were faster than the 750cc SuperBike Class (headliner) machines.

Have a ton of the press articles on the bike from magazines (and web
magazines) of the day.


{Still kneeling right?}


Yamaha FZR750RR OW01 For Sale

Yamaha FZR750R OW01

Comments from the seller:

Beautiful condition, all original with 2,700 miles. Only 200 of these produced and they’re getting harder

and has a aftermarket exhaust canister installed for a little more of that V-4 sound.


Bimota Vdue For Sale

Bimota Vdue

Comments from the seller:

Still in all original condition. 360 kilometers. Has the usual Vdue “issues” with the engine fueling -but can be sorted out.
(I’ve got another bike exactly the same that has been sorted and runs great.) This bike has stayed in original condition
though and has not had any modifications done to it.


So here’s my question: How do you choose? This is my favorite era of SportBike and seeing a collection like this is exactly what I’d like to have in my own stable some day. It would be like that corner spot in the Barber Motorsports Museum with all the great ones:

Interested parties better hurry because come Thursday after my $175mil PowerBall lotto ticket hits, I’m just going to buy them all!

If you have questions about the model specifications or history, or just want to chat about the collection, please post a comment below — the whole RSBFS team is going to keep an eye on this thread and will be happy to answer questions! Qualified buyers, I am acting as a proxy for the seller. Please send your inquires to dan@motoringblogs.com for additional details.

An unbelievable 20 Homologation Super Bike collection being auctioned

20 Homologation Super Bikes for sale!

A HUGE thanks to Matt for submitting this to RSBFS.com. I’m not sure how he found it, but it is a Super Bike Collectors dream come true. This auction consists of 20 factory homologation Super Bikes that cover the past three decades and a WSB winner to boot. Depending on what your cup of tea is there is something for every homologation fan. There are four 888 SPO’s, three regular RC30’s, a RC45, a 916 SP3, Desmocedici RR , three OW01’s, a ZX-7R K2, a 996R, a RC51 done up in Castrol racing colors and it has Colin Edwards signature, R1 SP2006 and a uber rare all white RC30 that is said to be 1 of 30. The bad part about this post is that this auction is taking place in the United Kingdom. I know there are some collectors that follow RSBFS that are probably chomping at the bit if they weren’t already aware of this auction. Some of these bikes are basically unobtainable by all standards, but yet here they are for the taking.

What I find crazy about this auction is that none of the bikes have bids on them yet; so either this auction is being kept relatively quiet or it’s a sealed bid type of auction. Whatever the case may be pull up a chair and grab your favorite adult beverage because you’ll be here a while. I think I’ve looked at it no less than 5 times in 4 hours. I just can’t get over it.

Check them out and lets see some comments:

One of the nicest collections we’ve ever had on RSBFS and you can view them all here.

Cheers!

1988 Ducati 851 Homologation Tri Color with B.I.N $25,000.00

This appears to be a super rare 851. I did a quick search and there is one for sale in Australia as well, so at the time of this posting, 2 are for sale at the same time! Pretty cool eh?

document.write(‘Super rare 851 on ebay‘);Super rare 851 on ebay

21

Quote from the seller:

This is one of the approximately 50 bikes imported into the U.S. “for racing use only”. it was titled and registered, and ridden (street only!) a bit more than 2800 miles by the original owner. The only deviations from stock are the modifications needed for street use. These include swapping the slicks for street tires, adding a mirror and turn signals (mid 60’s BMW bar end), a horn and a speedometer (digital bicycle speedo). In addition, an air filter element was fitted on top of the open airbox (in order to preserve internal organs!). The wheels were repainted (when the stock Marvic paint began to fall off!) with custom matched PPG Durathane. The brake and clutch fluids were changed 6 months ago, the oil and filter last week, and the timing belts were replaced last winter.

Vehicle Condition

The bike is in as close to new condition as can be expected for a 21 year old with 2800 miles. It has lived in a heated garage under a dust cover, and is mechanically and cosmetically excellent. There a few very minor defects consistent with it’s age and mileage, photos available on request.

I went to the Ducati site and looked in the Heritage section and it does show a bike just like this one, but doesn’t offer much information regarding a limited production kit bike. I’m sure some of our Ducati fans will set me straight and give us all of the 411 on this beauty. When produced Ducati outfitted these with Marvic wheels and racing exhaust. This one still has both and shows very well in the pictures. I am guessing this is a very desirable Ducati for any collector.

dd

Update: Just as I suspected Mark Morrison would be able to tell us all about this super rare machine. Mark left the info as a comment, but it won’t show up for everyone to read so I thought I would edit the post to help.

Quote from Mark Morrison – Ducati Expert

Only 10 of these bikes were brought into the states in 1989. They had European VINs and were for race track use only. Street legal 851’s began to arrive in June 1990. This is a nice bike being the first model and is actually if I am correct, an 851 kit. These bikes were the homologation model with 120bhp and 17″ Marvic rims instead of 102 bhp and 16″ composite wheels. They were supplied new with slicks and a headlight and tail light but no mirrors or indicators.

Cheers

Mark

Thanks for the info Mark!

Ultra Rare 1986 GSX-R 750 “Limited” Homologation Special For Sale

Check out this amazingly rare and immaculate 1986 GSX-R 750R Limited (GSXR750 RG) for sale on eBayMotors:

1986 Suzuki GSX-R 750R Limited GSXR750 RG For Sale1986 Suzuki GSX-R 750R Limited GSXR750 RG For Sale Dry ClutchSuzuki GSXR 750R Limited GSXR750 RG For Sale

quote from seller’s listing:

Suzuki took the GSXR750 and added trick bits; the forks were very high tech for their time. They had what was called “Anti-Dive” technology. They were electric activated, telescopic, coil spring, oil damped, spring preload and were four-way adjustable. The rear shock was just as special with a gas charged remote reservoir and was aluminum bodied. Racing tail section that was hand laid fiberglass with a custom solo seat. Custom colored wheels. Racing clutch lever and dry clutch. This made swapping out clutch plates at the track a faster and cleaner job as well as keeping the oil free of clutch plate materials and they run cooler. The clip-ons were wider. Front brakes were upgraded. The engine got a magnesium cylinder head as well as sprocket covers to save weight. The front brakes had speacial-designed hoses. The fairing had additional cooling ducts as well as quick release fasteners. Even the emblem on the side was bike-specific. And finished with a gold plated chain with an all-aluminum chain guard. All this and it weighed in six pounds less than an off the shelf 750.

Don’t you just love homologation specials?! The very best of everything and no expense spared. And when they’re nearly 25 years old and never raced, AND hardly even ridden, they’re truly a rare find. This one is currently at $12k (appears reserve has been met) with about 4 days to go.

And here’s a quick video I found on YouTube of a limited being revved up (not the bike in auction):
