88 Honda NSR250 Rothmans: Another CA Titled 2 Stroker

This Rothmans replica isn’t as cherry as the previous one I posted, but it sounds like a perfect track day bike or even immediate rider. Especially for the $3900 asking, and listed with a title!

1988 Honda NSR250 Rothmans Replica on Craigslist:

quote from seller’s Craiglist ad:

88 rothmans nsr 250 ca street legal, about as rare as can be. 260lbs and 65hp 2 stroke v-twin. been in shed for 9 months. ran perfect when put in. mechanicaly perfect. extra pistons, jugs, gaskets for future upper end rebild. It does not need one. lots of extra parts. 3 complete carb set ups. body work has old age cracks. bike needs to have carbs cleaned. I just dont have the time anymore. fastest bike Ive ever had on the track.

I like the look of this bike so much more than the 89 TZR250 I posted yesterday; not to mention the description in this ad inspires in a way the TZR will never! It’s honest, the picture is decent, and I’m sorry, but it’s readable. And for $3900, sounds like a screaming deal in parts alone!

1988 Suzuki GSX-R 1100: Clean and Recently Rebuilt Motor

I know that by definition the GSX-R isn’t rare considering how many were produced, but I would say they are close knowing how hard it would be to find a survivor like this one. Take a look at this 1988 GSX-R 1100 for sale in Chicago on Craigslist:

quote from seller’s Craigslist ad:

THIS IS A 1988 GSXR 1100 IN EXCELLENT CONDITION. IT HAS AN PROFESSIONALLY 1109 BIG BORE KIT INSTALLED IT HAS 2200 MILES ON IT.THIS IS AN EXTREMELY FAST BIKE. THERE IS 38mm FLAT SLIDES ,BIG BORE KIT, FALICON RODS AND HEAD WORK IN THE MOTOR. AND THERE ARE ALOT OF GREAT FEATURES SUCH AS IT HAS 8900 MILES ON THE BODY AND THIS IS A REALLY CLEAN BIKE.

Love the colors, original plastics, dual lamps and recently built motor. But that $3500 asking absolutely rocks!
