OW01’s (yep, plural) and an RC30 For Sale Soon!

This is a quick teaser for some future listings I’m working out the details on with my new super hero, Jeff. He’s thinning his collection of homologation sport bikes and sent along this picture of some of the stock that may be for sale soon:

He says he also has an RC30 that will need a new home as well. I’ll be getting details soon on all the bikes for sale and will post back soon!

1987 Honda CBR250R Hurricane For Sale in California

This submission is from Chris for his very rare 87 CBR250R. This bike has seen considerable love from Chris and Garage Company. Check out his Craigslist listing for full details on the work on this bike to make it perfect:

quote from Craiglist post:

1987 Honda CBR250R Hurricane (Code name : CBR250RH) , made only 1 year and only sold in japan. Somehow the bike arrived in the US and I bought it registered and titled…..so it is street legal.

Just a brief history, it has a 250cc , 16 valve, 4 cylinder, 4 carb, twin cam engine that runs on cam gears. Bike also has an all aluminum frame and goldish colored headers which I was told could be titanium..not sure. These headers only came on this model CBR250 and had the largest ports so they were most popular. Sounds amazing and redlines at 18,250 RPM. This bike was engineered by Shoichiro Irimajiri…..Honda’s most famed designer of the CBX

[…]

When I bought the bike it was painted all black, and it took me a year to collect all the original fairings and I found a new “Old stock” tank out of japan. I took the bike to Yoshi, owner of the Garage Company, La’s top vintage restorer. He had just finished a bike for Michael schumacher, and had a few rare honda’s in the showroom so I thought he was best for the job. We put new tires on the bike, chain & sprocket, intake manifolds, rebuilt and oiled the front forks, rebuilt carbs, valve adjust, tuned and jetted. Bike runs like a top. Pics and video’s taken with the contour HD. This bike sold for $6k new in 87. $8500obo

He also includes this video that features the awesome sound of that 250cc four all the way up to the 18k redline!

Thanks for the submission Chris and good luck with the sale!

Now updated with new link and lower price ($6500!). 9.28.09

Catch up Night!

I wanted to say thank you to everyone for all the great submissions! That annoying full-time job keeps getting in the way of my posting, but I have some beauties lined up to fire off tonight, including an NSR250R2R SE MC28, CBR250RR, OW01 and RC30 from the same owner, and a cool RZ350!

Later this week I’ll be starting a new feature for testimonials. The decal giveaway (I’ve got more, email me!) provided a great means to get in touch with several happy shoppers that found their new treasures via this website. I love hearing about your experiences, keep them coming!

2009 KTM RC8

Located in Fresno, California is a 2009 KTM RC8 with 1,700 miles.  A few days ago, Doug posted a RC8 on eBay with a buy-it-now of $26,000.  This one is priced at $16,000 and appears to be legitimately coming from a dealer in Fresno, California.  I fear that the eBay ad may have been fishing to see if someone would actually pay $26K for a RC8–as the $16k bike is coming from a dealer, it would be interesting to know what private party values currently are.  The seller states that the bike has $6,000 in extras including a full titanium exhaust.  See the Craigslist ad here. See the dealers website here.

2006 Aprilia RS250

Located in Lynnwood, Washington is a great example of a 2006 Aprilia RS250 Cup bike converted for street use.  This bike was brought over from Spain and has six-thousand miles total with 120 miles on the motor since complete rebuild.  The bike comes with a set of race plastics and extra digital dash (reason?).  The seller states that the bike is street legal, so I assume that it is titled and registered.  See the bike on Craigslist here.

1985 Honda RS250 ND5

Located in Montreal, Canada is a pristine, restored, 1985 Honda RS250.  Supposedly there are around forty examples of these ND5s.  This bike has period correct Comstar wheels.  This bike wouldn’t be a very good candidate for racing unless you have access to a good spares package (is this eligible for vintage yet?), it also wouldn’t be worth the chance of damaging it!  This bike speaks for itself in condition, see photos and attached link that shows the restoration process.  I followed the restoration thread never expecting to see this bike for sale.  This bike is very cool and would make a great addition to any museum.  The bike doesn’t have an asking price and I cannot imagine what this one would go for.  See the restoration thread here. See the thread on North American Two Strokes here.
