1994 Honda RS125

Now if you saw our last post for a pristine RS125, but wanted something you could seriously ride for track days or race, we have a perfect example in Alpharetta, Georgia.  This Honda RS125 is the perfect example of a serious race bike: not the prettiest thing, but gets the job done.  A RS125 would be a blast on the track and this example would be a perfect way to get there with a little work.  See the eBay ad here.

EDIT: Sold for $2,600.00 on 06/14/2009.

1989 Yamaha RZ350

For you lucky northern residents we have a Canadian market 1989 Yamaha RZ350 located in Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada.  The seller claims that this bike has an unbelievable (it doesn’t look like it in the pictures) 29,000km (16k mi).  Shown in an excellent looking blue and yellow paint scheme, this bike looks showroom new–either it is, or the seller is good with a camera.  There are some evident scratches around the triple-clamp, but for being twenty years old, this bike looks almost perfect.  If I were a Canadian resident I would seriously consider this fine looking example.  See the eBay ad here.

1991 Honda RS125

Located in Augusta, Georgia is a beautiful example of a Honda RS125.  This 125 series is what many fledgling GP stars, GP hopefuls, and weekend warriors enjoy because of it’s focus on bike control over brute power.  This example has been nicely restored and presents well.  The description of pearl paints and polished pieces would normally be off putting but this RS125 looks incredible.  The seller claims the bike has been a home art piece (with pictures to prove it) since 2006 and it is very believable.  If you were actually wanting to run this bike (which I hope you would) for track days–or race it– it would need a going over and possible tune up, but would be one of the best examples once done.  If you’d like to bid on it, see the eBay ad here.

EDIT: Did not meet reserve at $3,051.00 on 6/16/09.

1989 Yamaha FZR400

Located in San Diego, California is a very clean and original 1989 Yamaha FZR400.  Showing only 18k miles this example would be an excellent candidate for preservation and enjoyment.  Nice, street legal, examples of these aluminum framed 400’s have been reduced significantly due to racing.  If you would like an excellent example for only $2600, see the Craigslist ad here.

1995 Honda NSR250 MC28

Locate in West Los Angeles, California is an untitled 1995 Honda NSR250.  MC28’s are very cool, with their single sided swing arm; however, they are also have less horsepower and more weight that their earlier counterparts and use the ignition card system.  This example only claims to have 8,000km (4,970mi), but alas, the owner doesn’t have a title–and I assume therefore it isn’t registered either.  The owner is asking $10,000. I’m not sure if it’s the California market or simply being unrealistic, but that seems quite high for an unregistered/untitled NSR250.  If the bike were registered and titled in California it probably wouldn’t be too far from $10k.  If you feel that is a good price, however, see the Craigslist ad here.

If you are in the market for a NSR250 and located in the Midwest or willing to ship, I would certainly follow up on an ad posted on the Madison, Wisconsin Craigslist.  The seller claims that they have a titled and registered 1988 NSR250 MC18 located in Portage, Wisconsin.  The ad states:

Real nice, clean 1988 NSR MC18 with current plate and title in my name. Runs and looks excellent. Too many extras to list! Must see! Dyno tuned and shows 61hp. Super fun, super quick and handles like nothing else. I’m selling because I have neck problems and can’t ride sport bikes comfortably any longer. Pretty firm on price but might consider trading up or down for a newer dual sport or super moto.
Email for photos and I’ll send them out tuesday. But call if serious. Please don’t call if you don’t know what a NSR250 is or if you don’t have the money. 6086175090.

At $4,000; this would be worth looking into.  See the Craigslist ad here.

1985 Yamaha RZ/RD350 With Nine Original Miles $9500

Were you unable to purchase a RZ350 new in ’84 or ’85?  Here is your second chance: Located in Danville, California is a 1985 Yamaha RZ350 with nine original miles.  The description seems to be pulled from Wikipedia, however, if the nine original miles are true and this bike is in showroom condition it should sell itself.  The asking price is about double what an average RZ350 would go for–but again, this is a nine mile bike.  If you’d like to add to your stable of prized, low mileage bikes, don’t hesitate to investigate this one–make sure to see records too.  See the San Francisco Bay Craigslist ad here.

1987 Bimota YB5 $10000

Located in Greenwich, Connecticut is a higher mileage (for a Bimota) 1987 Bimota YB5.  This YB5 has 19,838 miles, making it a higher mileage Bimota–most seem to hover around the 5k or less mark.  However, what this YB5 does offer is the opportunity to actually use your Bimota without worrying about depreciation.  This bike still appears to be very clean for a twenty-two year old bike.  The idea of this bike being very usable isn’t out of the question, the moving parts originate from the Yamaha FJ series so they should be quite dependable and as long as they are maintained properly.  A 4200 mile YB4 went for $10.6k and a zero mile YB6 went for $13.8k recently, making this YB5 probably a bit high at $10k.  However, it is only an asking price, not the sold price.  If you’d like to make an offer, see the New York Craigslist ad here.

Restored Honda RVF400R NC35 $9000

Located in Tampa, Florida is a gorgeous, recently restored Honda RVF400R (NC35).  A beautifully presented example, this bike shows a recent, documented, restoration to stock with some additional carbon fiber ad-ons. Seller states:

Comes with track upper fairing, race can, some spares, all original OEM parts that I replaced, Haynes manual, parts manuals, decals, graphics, etc. The bike is 100% complete and even comes with OEM tool kit. I even have several hundred digital pics to document the entire journey.

Not cheap, but, this bike has recently been gone through, restored, and sorted.  NC35’s are only getting rarer and I don’t see them going down in value anytime soon.  See the Bay Area Riders Forum post here. See the documented restoration thread here.
