Two More Titled MC 21 NSR250 Honda’s For Sale in California

In a bad economy, the toys are apparently the first thing to go. Here are two more Honda MC21 NSR250’s for sale in California.

First is this 1993 Honda NSR250 For Sale in San Francisco for $5000:

1993 Honda NSR250 MC21 For Sale Rothmans Replica

sold as track bike at this moment, oil pump has been remove pre-mix setup,
Rebuild engine, new gas kit, spark plug, brake pad, chain
bike runs strong and super fast
PS* pic color is too sharp, there are some minor flaws cant show.
cash 5000 firm with title and plate or just the track use for 4500

Next is another 93 NSR250 For Sale in San Diego for $5200:

1993 Honda NSR250 MC21 For Sale Repsol Replica

quote from seller’s Craigslist posting:

93 Honda NSR250 MC21 R With Dry Clutch, Street Legal Ca register

Judging from the pictures alone, I like the Rothmans replica better from the point of aesthetics alone. For around five grand, neither one seems like that bad a deal considering they both have titles!

1993 Ducati 888 SPO: Yep Another One!!

Here’s another rare sportbike out of the San Francisco bay area; another 1993 Ducati 888 SPO for sale on Craigslist:

1988 Ducati 888 SPO For Sale in San Francisco1988 Ducati 888 SPO For Sale in San Francisco1988 Ducati 888 SPO For SaleDucati 888 SPO For Sale

quote from seller’s Craigslist listing:

FOR SALE: A beautiful 1993 888 SPO with 13,700 miles. Your chance to own a piece of history, the last of the hand built Ducatis and the father to the 916. 1 of 200 imported into the USA in 1993 to meet homologation requirements for AMA racing. A truly special machine that helped Ducati win the World Superbike Championship in 1991 and 1992, hence the #1 on the tail section.

Purchased in 2000 with 5,200 miles. Service records since then for major service intervals i.e. belts, valves and throttle body synch done by BCM Ducati in NH as well as by Desmoto in San Francisco.

Bike is stock and in excellent condition. Some minor scratches and chips from riding it. Runs perfectly and is very clean. Has factory rear stand included. Sadly it must go since I only have room for one Italian mistress in the stable.

Please call or email me for more details and pics. Pipes and front discs on bike in photo are not stock and not included.

With a $10888 asking (clever), this is one of the more expensive triple eights to be listed on this blog. While most Ducatisti will agree this where they should be, I think this seller may have a long wait before finding a buyer considering what other examples here in the states have been going for.

An RVF400 and VFR400 For Sale in the Bay Area

San Fran Craigslist continues to be the leader amongst all listings featured on this blog. I’m going to have to start tagging entries especially for the lucky enthusiast who live in the area!

First up, the 1990 NC30 VFR 400R:

quote from seller’s Craigslist ad:

*Up for sale is a JDM (Japanese Domestic Market) 1990 Honda VFR400R NC30.
*Bike has 24,626 km on the clock.
*Bike runs great, no leaks.
*Bike is not registered. Grey import for race use only in the US.
*Tires are Dunlop K510F 120/60R17 in the front and Dunop K510B 150/60R18 in the rear.
*There are some minor scratches and scuffs on the paint as you would expect coming from 17 year old bike but otherwise this bike is in pristine condition.

$3,900 obo

And next this Honda RVF400:

quote from seller’s Craigslist ad:

Honda RVF 400 $3000. Cali reg as a RVF400
This bike is very rare and fun to ride… I need it gone for a new toy I am only selling cheap for two reasons 1.) I need the space 2.) I took off the fairing because I was going to paint. so you have to re-install
good ~ Bike is fun to ride and rare (great for new rider)
bad need paint and wind screen is cracked

Naturally the VFR400 with original looking bodywork would be my pick. Too bad it doesn’t have registration. The RVF400 is probably the cooler bike mechanically, but restored plastics would be at the top of my list. But with a title and registration, and an asking of only $3k, it’d be a great rider while you tried to determine if it was going to be a track bike or light restoration for the street.

Check out the Wikipedia entry on the RVF400, which also details the differences with the VFR400.
