Private Collection in New Jersey

I haven’t see this website before but, Motorcycles For Sale Classic, is apparently a broker for a collection of motorcycles out of New Jersey.  It looks to have been recently updated but has some obvious errors–make sure to contact the seller by phone to confirm anything on their site.  Anyhow, these are some of the bikes that are still available that I found interesting:

  • 1977 MV Agusta 850SS with 1,791 original miles.
  • 1977 Ducati 900SS with 2,500 original miles.
  • 1986 Suzuki GSX-R750 Limited Edition with 2,358 original miles (Vance & Hines exhaust fitted).
  • 1985 Suzuki RG500 with 385 original miles.
  • Yamaha TZR250 with 22,245 miles.
  • 1984 Yamaha RD500 with 31,600 miles.
  • A second Yamaha RD500 with less miles.
  • Aprilia RS250 with 610 original miles.
  • 1995 Cagiva Mito.

These aren’t all the bikes listed on the site–and more appear in the background of photos–but again, I would caution anyone against acting too quickly.  The website listed features errors and older dates but, I haven’t seen these photos featured anywhere else and they all look to be correct and from the same location.  Titles and registration isn’t mentioned and only a few bikes have asking prices.  Regardless, take a look at the site as it may be an undiscovered mine!

1995 Honda NSR 250SP on ebay with B.I.N $10,500.00

Ah yes… I am always excited to see one of these for sale and this one has me smiling once again.

Located in Baltimore, Maryland with all the cards and manuals.

132

Information from the listing:

This is a 1995 Honda NSR250SP grand prix replica motorcycle. This bike is in excellent condition and runs great. I have babied this bike since I bought it in 2001, and it has never been ridden in the rain or left outside overnight since I have owned it. This bike is tagged and registered in Maryland and has a clear title. This bike appears to have never had any engine work or modifications, and everything is original except for the tires, chain, and steering damper. The tires and chain only have a few rides on them; the steering damper was on the bike when I bought it. A new battery was installed just before this listing was made. The tank has a small dent on the top to the left of the cap, but it is hard to show in the photos. The underside of the fairing has normal road wear, but no cracks or breaks. The sides of the fairing have small scratches on them that are visible in the photos. This bike overall is in excellent condition, and people can’t believe it is a 1995 model when they see it. Please feel free to ask questions or request more photos.
The Two Brothers stand is included. I have both of the original Honda Credit card keys and the factory owner’s manual (in Japanese) and tool kit. I am also including the spares that are shown in the photos, which include a new clutch and front brake lever, new intake manifold, new rear brake pads, new throttle housing parts, new shifter, and some used parts (which did not come from this bike).
This bike has not been derestricted or modified. The SP spec includes the dry clutch, magnesium MagTek wheels, and fully adjustable suspension, and this was the top of the line NSR made. I believe only 1500 of these were made in 1995.

These gems don’t come around that often and this one is said to be unmolested in any way, other than a small dent in the tank. The bike shows well in the pictures and is said to have 11,969 miles on it. Anyone want to buy my 98 VFR and 89 FZR 400 so I can get serious about buying a 2 stroke? Oh, did I mention the owner states he has both of the credit card keys? That in itself is pretty hard to come by much less a pristine looking MC 28.

My fellow RSBFS author Steve was gathering information about this bike when he realized I had beaten him to the punch uh……. I mean post. However, he was gracious enough to share all of his insightful info with me to make it a collaborated post. So instead of me taking his graceful post and butchering it with my Midwestern slang, I decided to put it up as he had intended.

RSBFS author Steve says:

“In November 1993, the first MC28 went on sale. The styling was only subtly changed, with the seat unit and nose fairing mimicing the factory NSR500 and NSR250 respectively. There was one major styling difference though… the Pro-Arm rear swingarm. This swingarm, originally designed and used on the RC30 for endurance racing, was the last word in styling!

The MC28 was also the first and only Honda to utilise the PGMIV, activated by the much hyped “Smart Card”, a device initially marketed as the ultimate tool in engine management! The idea was to be able to use several different cards, each with their own ignition characteristics, for any given track or weather condition. It was also the first production bike to sport a digital display. In reality however, the PGM-IV only served as a clever restriction aid introduced by Honda to comply with Japans ever increasing clampdown on power output and licensing laws. In fact, the PGM-IV makes the MC28 the costliest and hardest of the NSR’s to derestrict.

Although up on weight and down on power, the MC28 still remained the ultimate 2 stroke race-rep’, with only Suzuki’s 1996 RGV250R VJ23 trying to keep pace with the NSR’s ultra high specification.

Throughout its years (1994-1999) the MC28 remained virtually unchanged mechanically, and all three standard models were still available; the R, the SE, and the SP. The 1994 SP was again released in Rothmans colours, with a limited run of 1500 bikes, and in 1995 another 1500 limited edition SP’s were released in HRC Racing Colours.

In 1996 the R model was discontinued, and only the SE and SP were sold. Only 1000 SP’s were built, and were painted in Repsol colours to commemorate Mick Doohan again winning the World GP championship title.”

I couldn’t have said it better myself!

1998 Bimota SB6R For Sale on eBay

Not necessarily the most beautiful bike with it’s disproportionate shapes, it’s definitely a conversation piece. Italian construction with a very strong Japanese motor. Have a look at this Bimota SB6R for sale on eBay:

quote from seller’s eBay auction:

Offering serial # 007 Bimota SB6R from private collection with only 984 miles. This is the fierce Suzuki GSX-R 1100 powered model that was built in limited numbers as all Bimota models were and will continue to be a highly collectible bike. With the smooth lines only the Italians can produce and bullit proof Suzuki power, this is a beautiful & reliable masterpiece. This # 007 SB6R has a set of Moto Corse slip ons and steel braided brake lines which are the two most sought after aftermarket accessories. The bike has been on display in our museum with fuel which has resulted in plugged pilot jets which we did not address so the reserve is set very low for you to take advantage of. I rode this bike a few weeks ago, the brakes and handling are amazing and the power is unbelieveable, it just stumbles on low jet throttle position. Clean the carbs and enjoy the bargain on this rare piece of history or just do as we did and have it on display!

For a buyer with some skills or connections to a good technician, this could be a steal. Current bid is around $7k. What do you think it’s worth once it’s running properly?
