Would you like to ride the same bike as your hero?

Located in Northern California are three AMA superbikes.  See description below:

3 Yoshimura Suzuki AMA superbikes

Please be aware that two of the three have all of the data logging, traction control, and race instrument clusters removed. This drops the price considerably. Due to the current AMA roadracing rules, Yoshimura Suzuki bought these bikes from a dealership before converting them to race bikes. So they have proper VIN, registration, and titles! So in essence, one could convert these 200+ HP Superbikes into streetbikes if they wanted.

The last bike listed is Mat Mladin's race bike, as is, with all the insane factory race bits still on the bike. As a matter of fact, the tires are still the same ones still on this bike as last raced.

Due to the new homologation rules of the AMA Superbike series, Yoshimura Suzuki started out the 2009 season using 2008 bikes. So though these are '08 models, they were only built back at the beginning of this year, just in time to start the 2009 race season. This is the real deal. Factory spec full on superbikes.

What would could be cooler than showing up to Alice's on a Desmo?  Mat Mladin's bike would have to be right up there.

Here is a 2004 Honda RC51. What’s so special about a Honda you might say? Well, this is a not just a standard RC51 - it is a 2004 Honda RC51 Nicky Hayden Edition signed by its namesake. If you may recall, Nicky Hayden won the 2002 AMA Superbike Championship aboard a RC51 prior to being promoted to MotoGP (and went on to when the MotoGP Championship in 2006).

What else is special besides this dude’s signature? According to Wikipedia, the Nicky Hayden differs “from previous models by a polished aluminum frame and swing arm, a sticker kit, and white number plates on the front upper fairing and tail fairing.”

2004 RC51 Nicky Hayden Edition for sale

Additional information form the ebay listing:

You are bidding on a 2004 Honda RC51 Nicky Hayden Edition that has only 2135 miles on it. I am listing this bike for a good friend of mine. This bike is perfect and is new in every way, never any accidents or laid down in any way. Honda did not make that many of the Hayden bikes, so here is your chance to own one. The bike needs nothing and is ready for the road..........it comes with a matching helmet and back seat.

I do not know where the reserve is set but this is an almost new example down to the rear fender and reflectors. Not that I have ever owned a RC51, I do wish Honda would have continued development of their V-Twin sportbikes. Same with Suzuki’s TL1000R…

2004 Honda RVT1000R (VTR1000R) RC51 Nicky Hayden

Located in Los Angeles, is a 2004 (SP2) Honda RVT1000R with two original miles! Normally, I wont post RC51s--regardless of how much I like them--because they are quite prevalent but this one is quite special at two original miles. The bike has a new battery and a recent tune-up. The bike comes with the back seat, sticker kit, and tool kit. The seller is looking for all the money at--the original MSRP of--$11,599. I have seen a few 2005-2006 (The OTHER paint scheme, but the last two years) with under 5k miles for around $8,000; but this bike is quite special being a desirable SP2 with two miles . If you're an odometer snob, this bike is for you (I'd still like to see the odometer however, as most bikes are delivered with around twenty miles). The bike still even has its original brake light, license plate mount, and curb feelers; I hate the rear fender eliminators! See this bike on Craigslist here.

Located in Pittsburg, California is a very cool custom 1984 RZ350 consisting of parts from a RZ/TZ/R6.  This bike is titled and registered.  Seller states that it is 95% complete and is asking what seems to be a fair $5,000.  The details as per the seller:

Chassis:
-JMC Top Braced 2"+ Swingarm
-Rich Oliver's 2003 AMA winning TZ250 Forks, Revalved/Sprung & Ti Ni Coating by LE

-Fox Shox Twin Clicker, Revalved/Sprung by LE
-Jim Lomas GP SS Pipes w\ Carbon Silencers
-Gilfrap Billet Rearsets
-1990 TZ250 Wheels (4.5x17 & 3.5x17) w\ Michelin Pilot Race H2 Tires
-1990 TZ250 Rear Caliper
-1984 Full Braced / Gusseted Frame, Titled and Plated
-1985 Wire Harness & CDI
-1999 R6 Tank, Subframe and Undertail

1984 RZ350 Full Effort SpecII Motor:
-SpecII Stage IV Porting

Only 6 hours on the motor since being built. Requires 100 Octane Race Fuel with current domes but can be setup to run 92 Octane pump gas with included domes. Carbs will need new floats... I foolishly left the fuel petcock on when I went on a short vacation. The VP MR race fuel gummed up the carb bowls and floats. I have cleaned the throttle bodies extensively but will most likely have to replace the floats.

A very cool custom bike that appears to be at a very good price for the right person.  See the Craigslist ad here.

2006 KTM RC 125

Located in Cato, Wisconsin is a very rare 2006 KTM RC 125.  This bike participated in the MotoGP Rookies Cup in 2007 and the AMA U.S. Rookies Cup for 2008.  The bike has been professionally refreshed and rebuilt, ready to race.  The bike has a Buy-It-Now of $14,900, which is comparable to a brand new Honda RS125, but, this one is a professionally prepared, factory, race bike.
