1992 Kawasaki KR1S

If you’re looking for a rare, two-stroke, sport bike and think that NSRs and RGVs are too prevalent: we have for you a 1992 Kawasaki KR1S located in Austell, Georgia.  The seller doesn’t mention much about condition, or title, but provides contact information to follow up on and it is looks to be a pretty complete street bike–shown without exhaust or lower faring fitted.  The seller is asking $5,800 for a very, very rare (at least in the U.S.) Kawasaki.  See the WERA forum thread here.

1985 Yamaha RD500

Located in La Palma, California is a 1985 Yamaha RD500LC that only need some minor work to be complete.  This two owner RD500 shows only 3916km (2433mi) and only has 400mi since a “…frame off mechanical restoration.”  Supposedly the bike has mechanically been completely gone through and only need some minor cosmetic touches to complete it.

Cylinders were honed and ports chamfered. New oem rings, wrist pins and clips installed. Every seal, gasket and o-ring was replaced along with oil injector lines. Brakes were completely rebuilt including master cylinders, calipers (fitted with EBC HH pads) and rotors resurfaced. All wheel bearings were replaced with new sealed bearings

This RD500 needs some cosmetic replacement parts, most importantly the exhaust and fairings, to become a very nice, low mileage bike.  The bike is titled and registered in California. Seller is also a usa2strokers.com forum member so contact him through that site or through the eBay ad here.

1991 Suzuki RGV250 VJ22

Located in Chico, California is a very good looking 1991 Suzuki RGV250.  The VJ22s reportedly have 62hp on tap and weigh less that 150kg, making them a very quick and nimble sport bike.  This example is plated and registered in California, retains the oil injection system, has newer pilot powers, arrow exhaust and the top end was done at 18k kilometers–but does not mention current odometer reading.  The seller mentions some light nicks and scratches, but regardless, I say this is fairly priced at $6,000.  If you’d like to beat up much larger displacement bikes, see the Craigslist ad here.

1990 Honda NS50F

Located near Lexington, Ohio is a 1990 Honda NS50F.  This mini bike could be a riot, but with drum brakes and wire wheels, don’t expect it to be a rocket.  I love the colors and the overall design however, definitely something fun for around the pits or town.  See a one year only Honda with 2,350 miles on eBay here.

1996 Honda NSR250 MC28

Located in Fort Pierce, Florida is a titled 1996 Honda NSR250 MC28 with only 1,099mi, but is in need of some attention. The sellers description reads:

Up for bid is a 1996 REPSOL NSR 250, Never sold in the US. This is a factory reproduction of the REPSOL GP race bike. Built in very low numbers. This bike has a clear Florida title.But i would check your own state laws as in registering it before you bid. This has the one sided swing-arm and the Credit card ignition key that whould make it a great collectible. aftermarket plastic. This bike cranks rite up and runs but has issues with the PGM that controls the power-valves and WILL need to repaired before it will Run as it Properly.

The last sentence of that quote is the most important. The seller doesn’t delve too much into what the issue is, only saying that a race mechanic told him the PGM-IV card was bad. There have been sellers in the past that have advertised the cards for sale but most have been the original, restricted, cards. Also mentioned is that the bike has aftermarket plastics (eBay plastics?), so it could be a SP or a retrofitted R/SE. The running issue could be an easy fix or become very expensive because of the PGM-IV card. With that in mind, the bike is currently at $3,200 with just over 4.5 days left and the reserve not met–definitely a bike for someone with some resources. See the eBay ad here.

1993 Ducati 888 Superbike For Sale in Kansas

I’m always a sucker for the early Ducati superbikes and I’m keenly watching this market. Here’s an eBay listing for a 93 Ducati 888 Superbike:

1993 Ducati 888 SPO For Sale in Kansas1993 Ducati 888 SPO For Sale in Kansas1993 Ducati 888 SPO For Sale in Kansas1993 Ducati 888 SPO For Sale in Kansas

quote from seller’s eBay listing:

I can’t say enough about this bike. It has been a great bike but unfortunately has made it’s way to the back of the garage and this bike deserves to be on the road or shown in shows or as a museum piece. I’ve never ridden it in the rain and it hasn’t been ridden much at all in the past few years. I’ve had it on the Dyno within the past two years and it was still pumping out 100 horses. Great running bike and has the best transmission of any Ducati I’ve ever owned.

Bike has had several upgrades, such as tinted windscreen, Corbin saddle, O-Ring Chain, Upgraded EPROM, Carbon Fiber Tank Protector, Carbon Fiber Front Fender, Carbon Fiber Rear Hugger, Newer Style Pegs, Vented Clutch Cover and front sprocket cover, almost new tires. The cannisters have been “cleaned out” a bit and the bike runs and roars like a true Ducati should.

I will also send with the bike the Pitbull Rearstand, original front and rear fender, and extra rear “box” that has been cut down, and all other original parts that I can find. I believe I still have the original EPROM, Seat, Rear Fender etc. If I have it, you’ll get it.

A few years ago the bike do fall over on hot pavement (Kansas summer heat and fresh asphalt). It didn’t do too much damage, but did tweak the left clip-on (I ride it this way with no issues), scratched the back of the mirror and rubbed the part of the fender by the front left-hand turn signal. It is an easy fix with a little filler and some paint. The bike’s paint on the side panels were redone before the show to have the AGIP stickers put below the clearcoat along with the black along the bottom to make it look like a factory racer. All other paint looks great for a bike of that age as does all the other parts. In 2000 this bike won the Ducatifest at Eureka Springs, Arkansas. It was a great event and very well attended.

Looking at previous 888‘s listed on this blog, the buy-it-now price on this bike $8k seems about right. The listing is very honest about condition and it sounds like it is well sorted with common 851/888 modifications. Starting bid is $5k, so there is quite a margin in between. I’ll be curious to see where it ends up.

2003 Aprilia RSV Mille R Colin Edwards Replica

Located in Massachusetts is a 2003 Aprilia RSV Mille R Colin Edwards Replica, one of 461 worldwide. If you’re looking for a modern Italian V-twin, this bike may be up your alley. This bike differs from a standard Mille R by having a “…SBK Superbike exhaust system designed jointly by Akrapovic and Aprilia Racing…57mm throttle body kit, carbon-fiber racing airbox…and carbon fiber bodywork.” A neat Mille and something different if you’re looking for something Italian but don’t want a run of the mill Duc. The only disadvantage of buying this bike used? Not being able to partake in the original track day with Mr. Edwards himself that the bike would have originally come with. The bike has been used and is showing 12,679 miles, but with the auction starting at $1.00, the market will decide how that mileage effects this bikes value. See the Motorcyclist Magazine review here. See the eBay ad here.

See one with 323 original miles located in Orange County, California here. (06/29)

EDIT: Sold for $8,200 with 24 bids on 06/20/09.

2004 Honda CB50R

Located in Sterling, Colorado is a very cool and very rare 2004 Honda CB50R.  Honda sold these as collectors items to remember their small displacement race bikes of the sixties; unfortunately, they also weren’t street legal.  This example shows zero miles with the only known defect to be a moderately sized scratch on the front fender.  This bike would make a very cool pit bike, mini track bike, or piece of garage art.  This little bike is probably a blast to ring out on a small track.  Kelly Blue Book puts these bikes at $3120, but, let’s see what the market decides–shame on the scratch.  See the eBay ad here

EDIT: Did not meet reserve at $1,852.09 on 06/19/09.

Now available in Lexington, Kentucky is another zero mile CB50R showroom new, with no defects.  See the eBay ad here.
