1991/2 Kawasaki ZX 7RR all original!

Found this one first thing this morning on // <![CDATA[
document.write('eBay‘);
// ]]>.  As you may know, by now, these are my favorite and this one makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.  I’ll probably be in the mix with a bid or two, so bid to win!

rr1rr2rr3rr4rr5rr6rr7rr8

1992 Kawasaki zx7r Rare, original and unmolested. First off this bike is a CASH ONLY deal if you do not have the cash available please do not bid! 500.00 deposit through PayPal within 48hrs of auction end. O.K. now that that is out of the way I will begin. Yes,this is the real deal homologation model, aluminum gas tank, close ratio 6 speed transmission, solo seat and 40mm flat slides. Factory race bike very rare I highly doubt there is another one in better condition. From what I have been told there were less than 200 built.I have owned this bike since 1995 I bought it with 700 street miles on it, it has never been raced, crashed, dropped or mistreated in anyway never ridden in rain always garaged, it has some small scuffs on the tail section where the back pad attaches to it you can see them in the picture unfortunately this is how I bought and it was done at the dealer. It has a couple small scratches on the underneath of the right fairing, which cannot be seen unless you are lying down on your back. Other than that this bike is as mint as they come. The tank, plastics, seat, rims etc. are flawless. Truly must be seen to be appreciated. It has a fender eliminator kit on it which did not require any cutting so the original fender can be put back on also it has a full Muzzy stainless and aluminum exhaust. The fender and original exhaust both mint will be included in the sale. Brand new battery I even saved the original battery if you want it. The tank decal in the pictures is included I don’t think you can find one if you wanted to, some of these bikes came with this sticker applied and some didn’t. If you have been waiting and looking for one of these bikes this is the one you want. Clear title in hand. The rear stand is NOT included in the auction. Any questions please ask, if you need or want any more pics ask and I will send them to you. Again CASH ONLY DEAL! Shipping is up to the buyer I will help in any way possible loading etc.

The eBay description and VIN sticker say it’s a 1992, but all of my information says the K1 serial code is a 1991, which this bike has.  The description also states that this has 40mm carbs, but once again, all of my information says they came with 39mm carbs.

The condition of this 7rr is amazing! I posted a 96 7rr a few days back that was in good shape, but heavily modified. This one appears to have all of the right stuff with only 7,724 miles on it. Original exhaust, original championship sticker, original fender, reflectors, it’s all there! The only thing missing is the original crate from the factory.  This one has all the goods and should bring some good $$$.  I would love to continue blabbering about this bike, but I have to go home and start taking inventory on what I can sell. My kids should be scared!  Good Luck!

Update:  This bike sold for $9,855.00!

Yamaha OW01 and OW02 For Sale: Too Good to Be True?

Yamaha FZR750R OW01 For SaleYamaha R7 OW02 For Sale

Doug tipped me off this morning about an interesting listing on the FZRArchives forum that features not only a FZR750R OW01 For Sale for $10k, but also an R7 OW02 for $18k! Here’s an excerpt from the listing:

If anyone here is interested I have among others two very special bikes for sale a mint Y7 (OW02) $18,000 and an equally clean FZR750R (OW01) $10,000. I know what they are worth and I also know they are priced well below what they should. Htis is nto a scam and you can come see the bikes in FL. Also have references for the last 18 years I have been trading and playing with bikes. I have other cool bikes for sale not all are for sale when I have sold what I need the rest will stay. They include TZR250’s NSR250’s, RVF’s etc.

These are tough times for lots of people, and I know there are amazing deals to be had. But there’s this saying that seems to be ringing in my head when I look at this ad: If it seems too good to be true… I hope it’s real and someone scores some uber-rare unobtainium at a great price!

Thanks for the heads up Doug!

1986 Suzuki GSX-R750R

Located in Flagler, Florida is a 1986 Suzuki GSX-R750R Homologation Special.  This is one of the limited edition bikes released to Homologate Suzuki’s race bikes.  The differences from standard 750s are, dry clutch, solo seat body work, graphics–and possibly–Yoshimura frame, RGB500 front forks, polished head, larger intake valves, full titanium exhaust, 34mm carbs, Campagnola magnesium wheels and handmade aluminum fuel tank.  If you know the exact specification for U.S. model GSX-RRs, please, let us know.  This example only shows 8,407 miles, with the only defect being a small crack to the lower portion of the main fairing.  This bike has been sitting so it will probably also need to be gone through before using.  A thank you goes out to Rob for forwarding this to us.  See this very clean example of a GSX-R750R

Two Rare Ducati Superbikes For Sale: 916SPS and 996R

Motorcycle classified shopping is so good the second half of the season! Folks have got their last rides in, or realized that another summer has passed without riding again, and all of the sudden the market it flooded with sweet rides. I think there’s actually more on the market now than there is in the spring!

For instance, check out this beautiful 916SPS for sale with only 4500 miles!

Ducati 916SPS For SaleDucati 916SPS For Sale

quote from seller’s eBay listing:

An original example, never raced , never down. The 916 introduced in 1994 had an engine that was derived from the 851 which began life in 1987. The increased displacement and resulting horsepower gains over the ensuing years made the original engine cases fragile. In 1997 Ducati introduced a new engine with stronger cases. The AMA considered this a new motorcycle and required that twenty-five machines be sold for it to be homologated. This motorcycle is one of the twenty-five that were brought into the country for homologation, and is one of the ten that Ferracchi sold. The motorcycle was delivered with both a street legal exhaust system and a Termignoni system with the corresponding e-prom . The motorcycle comes with complete records including the Dynamometer run that Ferracci did prior to delivery. Included are the original wheels and tires, which have only been run on the Dynamometer. Marchesni magnesium wheels are on the motorcycle now. All original parts are included as well as an extra set of body panels.

Need something even more special? How about a Ducati 996R for sale with only 1 mile!

quote from seller’s eBay listing:

Rare 996R, the real deal, for the discriminating Ducati collector. Beautiful and historic this is one of the finest examples on the iconic superbike know to exist in the world.

A must have collection piece for the true Ducatisi or motorcycle museum curator.

This is a unique opportunity. Never ridden, never raced, no road use. A perfect example of Ducati’s legendary 996R Superbike. This bike is a critical step in the bloodline of Ducati’s racing leadership.

A real 2001 996 R, no headlights, no taillight, and faded factory shipping stickers remain on the twin headlight infills on the gorgeous carbon fiber fairing. Ducati 996R in full clear coated carbon fiber emerge from the red paint showing the world the fairings’ composition. Two frame labels denote that this machine is for racing use only.

he bike is truly beautiful. It is part of the lineage of the most iconic sport bikes ever designed. Its’ monoposto tail section with painted number plate, gold pinstriping, and grillwork are spectacular. Front and rear Ohlins suspension and an Ohlins steering dampener overtly display the quality components built into this bike. This 2001 996R has spent its life in an artistic collector’s home on a track stand. It is as close to factory original condition as is possible.

The 916SPS is a bit more of a standout to me as it has tons of trick and exclusive parts, but doesn’t do away with the headlights, indicators, etc… But as a piece of art in the house on the winning lotto day, well then that 996R would certainly fit the bill!

1988 Yamaha FZR 750 R $3750

Located in Carmel, California is a seemingly very rare and very original Yamaha FZR750R. The seller claims that only 200 were brought into the U.S. from 1987-88 (I believe they were imported until 89, the last year being the OWO1). The bike only has 5,400 original miles; however, it does have race history. Does race history make a difference on a homologation special? For this particular bike, at this price, I would think not.

1988 Yamaha FZR750R on San Francisco Craigslist:
1988 Yamaha FZR750R

The FZR-R comes with (Factory?) Yamaha race parts (13,000 rpm black box, crankshaft,springs, fork springs, etc), original plastics, an Airtech set manuals/Microfische, period articles, spare rim, stand and more.

Ask yourself, would you rather have a six year old CBR F4i, or a race-bred homologation special? I know which one I’d have to choose.

1987 Yamaha FZR 750R #169 of 200

Update 1.14.2011: Now on Craigslist for $4k. Thanks for the heads up Joe!

216543

Located in Louisville, KY this bike belongs to and was submitted by Kelly who is a RSBFS.com daily reader. Thank you for supporting our site and sending us your bike to post.

We’ve had a few of these before, but I have to admit it’s been difficult finding the proper information for this bike.

Here’s what I know:
These were the pre-cursor to Yamaha’s famed OW01 FZR 750RR Homologation
There were only 200 of them made to satisfy the AMA Homologation rules
There are very few left as most of them were raced just like any other LE Homologation production model

Owner has the following to say:

This bike is #169 of only 200 made for the US market. To homologate the FZR for AMA racing, Yamaha had to bring 200 street-spec 750 into this country. This bike escaped the racetrack, instead becoming a garage queen. The bike is entirely stock. Never safety wired, never put on the track. As you can see in the pictures, the only damage is a crack in the fairing at the right side front turn signal and a little bit of clearcoat peeling off the left side of the solo cowl. The only mechanical issue on the entire bike is that the button which resets the odometer came off years ago. Last year I had the valves checked and the carbs synched. This bike runs beautifully. If you are very serious about this bike I will be glad to make a short video showing start-up from cold. Nothing to hide, like I said it runs flawlessly. I also have an original Yamaha shop manual and various magazine articles from when the bike was released.

Looks like Kelly has taken great pride in owning this bike because by looking at the pictures one wouldn’t know it has 25,304 miles on the clock, which is low for a 22 year old motorcycle. I also think it says a lot about the seller and bike when the owner is willing to produce a video showing a cold start and idle. So if your a Yamaha guy and like what you see,

Ducati Xerox 999R #58

Ducati Xerox 999R #58

quote from seller’s Craigslist posting:

If you have not been to visit our warehouse, this Ducati Xerox 999R, #58 with 1387 miles, is another reason you should drop by soon. Another rare slice of modern motorcycle history is now being offered for sale at Automania. The 2006 999R XEROX Ducati Superbike is the customer homologation replica of Troy Bayliss’ FO6 World Superbike Championship Motorcycle that he used to dominate and win the 2006 WSB championship.
It has fundamentally the same specifications as the standard 999R but with the special XEROX badging and a few other mechanical differences

I’m really not knowledgable about the values of these bikes. But they are obviously collector examples that will command some premium in the market. Which one would you pick as best value?
