1991 Suzuki RGV250 Gamma

Located in Brooksville, Florida is a 1991 Suzuki RGV250 with 8,000 miles.  This bike is shown, very nicely, in the Lucky Strike replica colors (Did they release a ’91 Lucky Strike replica?).  This RGV has Tyga exhaust, GCC Kevlar rear huger & chain guard (very period cool), and 34mm carbs (Not stock?).  This bike is also titled and registered in Florida.  See this very clean RGV, as a fantastic Lucky Strike replica,

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!

1990 Honda VFR750R RC30

Located in Martinez, California is a two owner 1990 Honda VFR750R.  This RC30 has 11,473 miles and is in good condition but not perfect.  The bike has rock chips, scratches, and a crack on the lower fairing.  Other than the damage to the lower fairing this bike looks to be quite nice and having all of its original equipment.  Check out this RC30 quickly because the auction ends in less than 24 hours!

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

1985 Yamaha RZ350 Kenny Roberts

Located in Los Angeles, California is the rare color 1985 Yamaha RZ350, Kenny Roberts edition.  This bike has been well maintained and completely gone through.  This example claims to be completely stock except for the smoked windscreen, tires, and battery.  It sounds as if the majority of the rubber parts on this bike have been replaced only because of their age–which is a good thing.  The bodywork is completely original.  The seller states that the only defect is a small one on the tank decals.  This bike is California titled and registered.  Priced at $5,499, this bike is located at a dealer but not inflated in price just because of that fact.  See the Craigslist ad here.

Suzuki GSX Katana For Sale: Only 3000 Miles, Barely Broken In!

The last time a champagne colored GSX750 Katana came up for sale I immediately thought of Paul’s old bike. While the image with this eBay listing of course also made me fondly recall that bike, this particular one only has 3000 miles on it!

quote from seller’s listing:

989 suzuki 750 katana 2900 original miles, bike is like new, not a scratch. you could eat off of this bike, its that clean.

It doesn’t look like the bids are going to break the reserve. Too bad, I wonder what the owner wants for a nearly new Katana?

1996 Honda Repsol NSR 250 SP MC28 #143 For Sale

1996 Honda NSR250 SP MC28 For Sale Repsol Replica Perfect

Gary’s 1996 Honda NSR250SP is our first ever featured listing. I’m especially proud to feature this particular bike as it is one of our favorite models on Rare Sport Bikes For Sale. And it is very special indeed with very low miles and no stories.

1996 Honda NSR250 SP MC28 For Sale Repsol Replica Perfect1996 Honda NSR250 SP MC28 For Sale Repsol Replica Perfect1996 Honda NSR250 SP MC28 For Sale Repsol Replica Perfect

Here is Gary’s description of his 96 NSR250 SP MC28 which is listed with an asking of $12k in Los Angeles:

This is a real and very rare (especially the miles) 1996 Honda Repsol NSR 250 SP #143 of 1000 made, the lowest number and last year of the SP. It took me years to find this one and I have never seen another Repsol with this low mileage. About less that 100 made it to the USA, most stayed in Japan or were shipped to the UK because they are legal there. This one runs on the stock card. It does not have the de-restricted wire splice done so the miles are exact at 4,700 miles. Most other NSR listings that claim to have low miles are running the HRC card and miles are no longer accumulated, even though they brag “low miles”, but you may have noticed they have had the top rebuild, new chain & sprocket…

This bike is in excellent condition. I don’t ride it, it’s just for show. Comes with a current Texas registration title 03/2010 and bike is located in Los Angeles. Had the very first tire change in April of 2007 and only has 600 miles on them. Also has the original chain & sprocket, and no top end rebuilds.

When people see this bike it looks brand new. It was the 2008 Woodley Park 2 stroke extravaganza winner for best Honda.

I’m asking $12,000 OBO comes with factory Honda stand, extra keys, and brand new (never programmed) HRC 030 Card.

Surely one of the finest NSR250’s ever listed on this blog and a rare opportunity anywhere to pick up a very important and collectible motorcycle. Good luck with your sale Gary!

(1995) Aprilia RS250

Located in Tampa, Florida is a rare Chesterfield/Biaggi replica Aprilia RS250 that was supposedly shown in the Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum.  The bike features Arrow exhaust with the original included.  The bike is claimed to be in the condition it was when it left the factory–if it was displayed at Barber, I would imagine that is true.  Mileage isn’t mentioned in the ad but the asking price is all the money at $11,000.  If you’re looking for an outstanding RS that has been displayed at Barber, see the Craigslist ad here.
