Brit Bike – 2004 Triumph Daytona Special Edition

This rather nice Triumph has one great paint job. OK being English I am biased but I always love this flag draped over the front of the bike. This Triumph is a 4 cylinder bike with fuel injection, of course now Triumph are famous for their triples, even so this is a Hinckley Triumph. This Daytona was renowned for being a great handling bike and has proved a favorite with track day enthusiasts in the UK. With 110bhp coming from the engine it also managed to get up and go.

The owner gives us some detail here and also is kind to point out the damage.

FOR SALE IS AN 2004 TRIUMPH DAYTONA 600 SPECIAL RACING EDITION (VERY RARE) CLEAN TITLE, NEVER BEEN WRECKED. RIGHT FRONT FAIRING HAS MINOR COSMETIC DAMAGE. BIKE HAS LITTLE OVER THAN 11,000 MILES, RUNS AND RIDES PERFECTLY. NEW TIRES AND NEW BRAKES, AFTERMARKET MUFFLER, EVERYTHING ELSE IS ORIGINAL PARTS.

$4200, AND THAT IS A STEAL FOR SURE. TITLE IN HAND. NOT EXCEPTING TRADES.

The eBay auction can be found here.

I think $4200 is a good price perhaps a little on the top end but this is a very nice bike with a sensible mileage and you have to love the paintwork.

1992 Yamaha FZR600 Vance & Hines Edition #476 with 2,620 Original Miles

This a very nice, low mileage, Vance & Hines Edition FZR600.

Bike:  1992 Yamaha FZR600 V&H

Location:  Mountain Lakes, New Jersey

Mileage:  2,620mi

The seller states that this bike is “…perfect without a scratch.”  It was recently tuned and supposedly runs like a champ.  This bike looks to be perfectly stock (except for the windscreen) and in fantastic condition as the seller states.  We’ve had a few V&H Edition FZR’s in the past and none had this low of mileage or were in as original condition.  See the other FZR600s we’ve posted here.

The Vance & Hines Edition wasn’t special other than the commemorative scheme and V&H exhaust system.  1992 was also the last year for the square headlight design which only lasted for two years before Yamaha reverted back to the earlier, dual headlight, design that was so popular.  If you’re a Yamaha collector, you should have one of these and this is probably one of the best examples out there.  See the bike on eBay .

1987 Honda CBR600F Hurricane With 8K Original Miles

This is a nice looking, first year, CBR600F Hurricane about to end on eBay.

Bike:  1987 Honda CBR600F Hurricane

Location:  Bradley, Illinois

Mileage:  8,101mi

The seller states that this bike is a one owner example, in showroom new condition.  The bike has been modified with a K&N filter (And probably a drilled air-box cover), an F1 exhaust system, a larger rear sprocket and the passenger pegs have been modified.  The only claimed cosmetic imperfection is the small crack in the front fender.  The carb’s were gone through earlier this year and new, Pro-line, fuel lines were also installed.

The bike does look very good in the pictures.  I don’t doubt that it is fantastically clean in person but there may be some small issues the seller may have missed but, I’m pretty sure they know the bike quite well after 23 years.

Sadly, the only issue this bike may have is the price:  I don’t see this bike going for $3,500 and the seller has a reserve in place.  Heading into fall, I’d probably assume this bike would go in the $2.5k-2.8k range.  There are collectors for these early CBR’s but, they seem to not be willing to pay a premium because they know no one else will.

This was the first production 600cc bike to crack the quarter mile in under 12 seconds with a time of 11.7 @ 113mph.  These early CBR’s are quite fun if you realize they are 23yo technology.  Parts are prevalent and nothing is really difficult other than the valve service–just like any inline four within a confined frame.  The only major drawback is the rim widths.  While the rims are 17″ front & rear, they are quite narrow and were originally fitted with bias-ply’s leaving the current tire choices limited–but, still better than for an FZR.

Although I wouldn’t spring for this bike at this price, I believe these aren’t a bad choice if you’re looking for a budget collectible.  While the F2 & F3 bikes may have had more aftermarket parts during their time, the Hurricane will always be the first generation of the, ongoing, iconic CBR.  See this bike on eBay .

2003 Kawasaki ZX-6RR Completely Stock With 1,766 Original Miles On eBay

This is a very nice example of what I believe to be one of the next collector Kawasaki’s!

Bike:  2003 Kawasaki ZX-6RR

Location:  Windsor, Connecticut

Mileage:  1,766mi

The seller states that this bike is in mint condition and free of scratches or dents.  The bike has a new battery and fresh oil change.  This bike looks to be completely stock down to the rear fender and exhaust.

Now before you judge me, this isn’t the 636cc ZX6R, this is the Homologation 599cc ZX6RR.  What does that mean?  Well, the RR features a short stroke engine with forged pistons, fuel injection, close-ratio gear box, adjustable swingarm pivot, adjustable USD forks, adjustable rear shock, a 15,500rpm red-line and a digital dash with lap-timer.

Like many of the bikes on RSBFS, the RR was designed to compete in national (AMA) events and World SuperSport championships.  I see it being one of the future collectible Kawasaki’s especially as examples like these become increasingly rarer.  This was the first 600cc sport bike to feature USD forks and should be the first new Kawi in your collection.

See this low mileage example on eBay , before someone convinces their eighteen year old friend this would make a great first bike.
