Good morning guys!

Here are the latest reader rides and suggestions, and it’s a packed day to say the least! My apologies to those who were missed and good luck to those still available.

Let’s kick things off with this Honda CBR400RR Joey Dunlop tribute bike spotted by Jeremy. Located in San Francisco for $6500.

Mark spotted this unusual Suzuki RG400 available in Toronto for $8900 CAD. The seller is a dealer who states they can export to the U.S.

This 1985 Yamaha FZ750 custom cafe is being offered from Noel. Normally I’d post this on one of our sister sites, but since he’s thrown in some free advertising for us on his listing you check it out. Opening bid is $2500 reserve not met and it’s located in Minnesota.

Jay W. has been loving our GSX-R 1100 posts and sent us this listing for a 1986 Suzuki GSX-R. With about a day to go it’s at $3k reserve not met and has 21k miles.

Here’s another submission from Mark, a sweetheart 1985 Suzuki RG500 in Toronto for $9000 CAD.

Joel emails us his gorgeous 1986 Suzuki GSX-R 750 survivor. With a bit over 7k miles he’s asking $6200 in Detroit. Good luck with the sale!

Eric emails us this sweet spot, a 1987 Yamaha FZR1000. This is a really sharp looking ride and appears mostly original for just $4500 in Bakersfield, California. As a bonus, the seller is throwing in a parts bike!

Shaun emails us his 1992 Ducati 851 with just 11k miles in Dallas, Texas. Good luck with the sale!

Finally Tony sends us this RZ350 he spotted on San Francisco Craigslist for $6500. Just 5k miles from an older rider according to the seller.

May 1st Mailbag — A Little Late but Worth the Wait

Hey guys,

Sorry for the delay this week but we got a ton of submissions, probably twice as many as usual. While I’ve passed on a few almost all made the cut. Thanks for your submissions and have a great rest of your week!

Chris M shoots us his listing for a 1997 Moto Guzzi Daytona RS. Just 5400 miles and located in San Diego. Good luck with the sale!

Perhaps the deal of the day (even with the goofy signals), Chris forwards the first of several sweet finds in the Toronto area. Here’s a 1996 Kawasaki ZX-7RR for just $4500 CAD. Doug needs to a leave a comment on this one!

Chris S. forwarded us this great looking 1985 Ducati MHR Mille in San Francisco. $21500, miles not disclosed.

Dan spotted this freshly imported 1989 Honda VFR400 NC30 for sale in Toronto. 27k kilometers, $6000 CAD.

By now you know I’m a sucker for mass produced sportbikes of the past that have somehow survived. This one strikes a chord with me as my first bike in college was an FZR 600. This one spotted by Louie has only 70 miles and is located in the Winston-Salem area. Seller is asking just $3400. {flame suit on!}

Gregg spotted another sharp Aprilia Bol ‘d Or RSV1000R in Reno for $9350 with under 5k miles!

Chris spotted an interesting 1992 Yamaha 3TJ FZR400RR for sale in Toronto. After conferencing with Doug, it appears it does have OEM bodywork though looks painted. For $2499 CAD might be worth a look for such a trick little machine. For those in the U.S., check out our sponsor SpeedWerks, who have extensive FZR400 experience on track.

Craig spotted this Red Bull Rookies Cup KTM 125 GP Bike on the WERA classifieds. It’s a brand new bike, never ridden, and has spares. $24k.

Adam forwarded this rare Bimota SB6 in New Haven for $9999. Rare because it’s actually been ridden nearly 9k miles!

Tim forwards us another nearly new track bike, a 2008 Honda CBR125 track bike with just 2km’s. For just $4500, this looks like a fun track day machine for a smaller rider.

Randy from BellissiMoto forwarded this incredible custom 2007 Ducati Monster S4RS with a reported $38k in upgrades!

Justin emailed us his 1989 Suzuki GSX-R 750. It has less than 6k miles and he’s asking $5000. And thank you to whomever tipped Justin to our site!

Rob emailed us from Australia and is needing to move his 2000 Suzuki GSX-R 750. He has a new baby on the way and was hoping someone locally might see this as we have a growing audience in Australia.

Finally, “Big Bubba Brush” email us this spotless 1990 Suzuki GSX-R 1100 in Canada for $5500. With just 4400 miles, this looks really good!

Reader Rides For Sale February 22, 2012 posted by

Featured Listing: 2001 Bimota DB4 for sale!

For Sale: 2001 Bimota DB4 (only $8650!)

RSBFS superfan John is offering up his stunning Bimota DB4 with just over 5,000 miles on the clock, and believe me folks this is something worth looking at! Just have a gander:

Following in the footsteps of the legendary DB1, DB4 was an unabashed sport bike powered by an air cooled Ducati 900cc vee twin. This bike was a return to Bimota’s roots, as the previous effort – the DB3 Mantra – was more of a standard/cruiser oddity than a dedicated canyon carver. Bimota skillfully selected the best artistic bits from the Mantra (like the oval shaped trellis frame), and built a true successor to the DB2. The results are a ~364 lbs package with great Ducati torque – although lowish HP numbers (a stock Ducati 900SS mill churns out around 80 HP). But with light weight and fantastic suspension and braking componentry under you (Paoli forks, Ohlins rear shock and Brembo on both ends), few bikes are as easy to ride fast down a curvy piece of road.

The DB4 offers terrific performance without some of the compromises of earlier Bimotas. The seat hight is low enough for most riders, and the seating position is pretty reasonable. Check out the multi-piece fairing which allows for easier access to internals; when maintenance is due, any Ducati shop can swap the belts and run the valves. This is an exotic that you can live with.

From the seller:
I’ve decided to part with my beautiful Bimota db4. Since I broke my wrist in September of 2010, and the two subsequent surgeries, I just can’t get comfortable in the sport-bike crouch. It is in excellent condition with just over 5k miles, the tires still have plenty of tread depth, I have the original tool kit, and I have just replaced the battery. It needs absolutely nothing. The fit and finish on the bike is flawless, and the paint work is beautifully done.

This bike is fitted with the factory race kit which consists of a pair of 39mm flat slide Keihin carbs, the FBF pipe (some came fitted with a Corse pipe), a different air box, and a new fuel cell to allow fitment of the new carbs. Performance is said to be greatly improved over stock. The tank and seat monocoque is one piece and is held in place quite securely with three 7 x 1.0 screws. The rear fender and mudguard are both carbon fiber, as is the FBF exhaust canister.

The instruments are contained in a carbon fiber faced bracket. Along with the requisite speedo and tach, there is an oil temperature gauge, low oil pressure light, and low fuel warning light. The top clamp is machined billet. Both master cylinders are Brembo. And the mirrors are actually useful, a first for me on a modern sport-bike. Brembo calipers and rotors up front work superbly. Excellent feel and very powerful, the best combination of braking I’ve ever felt on a motorcycle. Forged magnesium Marchesini wheels front and rear, beautifully done and the simple design makes them easy to keep clean.

The bike is an absolute joy to ride, very small, light, and nimble. Might not be a good fit for a taller rider, but for me at 5’8″ it’s a perfect fit. The relaxed cadence of the motor at speed, and the ease of handling belie the quickness at which you are traversing the roadway. This is a very easy motorcycle on which to keep a fast pace in the twisties.

This bike is available for sale directly from the owner. The asking price is a very market friendly $8650 – certainly a bargain for a low mileage, collection-worthy bike such as this. You can see his website HERE for more information, or email him at motorcyclefanatic@gmail.com.

Collection Liquidation: 1993 Ducati 888 SPO For Sale!

Location: Boyne City, Michigan
Mileage: 67 (sixty seven)
Price: Currently $11,075 with reserve in place

Up for grabs here we have yet another bike from the collection that is currently being sold. You might recognize some other bikes from the collection such as this Bimota DB2 currently for sale and the Ducati 851 SP3 that sold on eBay last week.

The 888SPO has the same size engine as the 851 SP3, but was rated at slightly less power coming in at 104hp. The “SPO” moniker was specific to the US market 888, which was a combination of the high performance SP5 and Strada European models, though the SPO was more closely related to the Strada.

More from the seller:

Up for auction is a 1993 Ducati 888 Superbike SP0. This is a very clean motorcycle that I am selling for my Dad who is selling his collection. This bike only has 67 Miles on the odometer. It has been well maintained and cared for in heated storage.

The condition of the bike is fantastic. The paint on the front nose has been chainged to suit the original owners tastes. It has white instead of red on the nose. It also has the upgraded Termignoni exhaust.

Please take a look at the large pictures to get a better idea of condition and email me if you have any questions.

** Visit this link to see higher resolution larger pictures http://imageevent.com/joejo20/1993ducatisp0 **

Like the rest of this collection, this bike appears to be in exceptional condition. The only thing I can see that wouldn’t allow this bike to fetch top-dollar would be the repainted front from red to white, although the paint work does look good and flows nicely with the bike. Did I forget to mention the bike only has 67 miles? Yep, that’s it. There is a reserve on the auction still with bidding currently at $11,075. Check out the auction for yet another classic Ducati here!

The Duc That Changed Everything: ’89 Ducati 851 SP1

Location: Canada
Mileage: 1,561 Km (roughly 969 miles)
Price: Auction, starting at $18,793.06

Okay Ducati fans, time to pay attention. There are many Ducati’s in the superbike, limited-edition, race-bike world. And they are all cool in their own right. But I think this deserves a little more attention because this is where the current era of Ducati superbike got started. The 851 was a bit of a revolution for Ducati with the development of a four valve per cylinder L-twin, electronic fuel injection, liquid cooled engine cranking out 93bhp. And from that effort, it was an 851 that won the first ever World Superbike race. That’s some history right there.

Another interesting note about the 851 SP is that they were not 851 cc engines (like the Strada), but 888 cc’s. This is similar to the 996 cc engine on the 916SPS. Go figure.

Here’s some more photos. The auction has a link to additional hi-res photos.

Here’s what the seller has to say-

Don’t mind the low feedback – I trade commercially as loudbikesteve on eBay and enjoy an excellent reputation.  I set this account up to keep my personal stuff separate from my business stuff.. 

I’m listing this 1989 Ducati 851 SP1 for a very good friend who’s not very computer savvy. The listing photos for this machine were taken a few years ago, but the machine has resided in a climate-controlled facility since then and is essentially unchanged. Famed Ducati tuner Reno Leoni brought this bike (one of 100 made) in from the factory and took it directly from LaGuardia airport to the World Superbike event at the Mosport circuit in Ontario, Canada where noted Canadian journalist and motorcycle enthusiast, George Jonas and a friend talked him into selling it to them. The current owner was able to acquire the machine about 10 years ago. This machine is a gorgeous and rare (possibly the only one in North America) unmolested or modified example of Ducati’s first limited edition 851 ‘Sport Production’ bike. Very low (1,561km) use with most of its life spent on display in a climate controlled facility, this machine comes with the original brochure, a stack of reference material and the original exhaust silencers   Detailed hi-resolution pics are HERE.

Please check out my other listings for more vintage machines for sale!

Good luck with your bid!

Looking at the seller’s post, this particular bike seems to have in interesting story behind it. Not being super familiar with Canadian writers and racing, this may be more interesting to Canadians than people in the US. But a cool story is a cool story. Information on shipping outside Canada is also included, which may be handy if you’re new to this type of purchase.

This bike certainly has to be one of the more important bikes in the Ducati lineage. Throw in the history about WSB and the impact it had on Ducati’s that came afterwords and there is no doubt it’s a winner. It also happens to be one gorgeous bike in my opinion. If you agree with all of this, then make the jump!
