1993 Honda CBR900RR in Virginia for just $4,000!

1993 Honda CBR900RR for sale

The red, white, and blue CBR900RR is such an iconic bike, and not just in the U.S. This month’s Practical Sportbikes highlights this modern classic and reminds me that I would love to have one of my own. Perfect examples command an appropriate premium over average examples. But while this one has some minor aftermarket bits and a few cracks, it’s not a wrecked bike as far as I can tell, and to be honest seems better than average even with nearly 40k miles. Considering it has an opening bid of just $3k and a buy-it-now of $3,999, this looks like an example that is ready to be enjoyed and perfectly set for an easy restoration down the line.

1989 Yamaha RZ350 now available in Texas

Update 4.13.2014: Having failed to sell in it’s first auction with a high bid of $5800, the RZ350 is back on eBay with a high bid of $5100 and over 4 days remaining. Links updated. -dc

Readers of this site are no strangers to the cult classic RZ350, but this Canadian import is a bit different with it’s full fairing and very blue paint scheme. I went through our archives and we’ve only posted these a handful of times, and most were still in Canada whereas this one is titled in Texas. Showing just 7200 miles on the clock, this example has obviously been well looked after in it’s 25 years judging from the pictures (available in high resolution in the gallery below) and is stated as garaged it’s entire life.

from the seller:

1989 Yamaha RZ350 Canadian import bike. Clean Texas Title in hand. Perfect condition bike. Recently serviced and tuned. No scratches or dents. 9.9 out of 10. This one is a collectors bike. It has 11601 km (7208 miles) on it. Never ridden in the rain. Garaged it’s entire life with me. Time to move and no room for this one. Sad to see it go.

1987 Honda CBR250 MC17 Hurricane – “Best In The World!”

Show winning 1987 Honda CBR250 MC17 Hurricane with 2000 miles on ebay – Best In The World!

Wow – the last time I saw a CBR250 Hurricane was…wait, I don’t think I’ve ever saw a CBR250 Hurricane in the flesh! Never mind…

The point I was trying to make was this bike really brings me back to my younger days when I would drool over the similar styled CBR600 Hurricane.  The Hurricane was significant in that it was one of the very first sport bikes to feature fully enclosed body work to tackle the issue of  aerodynamics,  and this design influenced sports bike styling ever since.

Now this CBR250 Hurricane is in mint mint mint condition – whether it’s “Best In The World” (a pretty tall claim) is your call:

Hello my name is Joe Fazio and I am the proud owner of a show winning 1987 Honda CBR Hurricane 250 MC17.. WORLD CLASS.

20,000 RPM redline, 4-cylinder, 4stroke, double over head cam, 16 valve..cam gear driven….. 300pounds, 250cc/50 hp= 200HP per litre, on par or even better than new technology (1987), pure import, head to head with the 600cc sport bikes of its time….6-speed, titanium header, double disk brakes.. 2000 MILES… all stock and original except for the brand new set of Avon tires, front and back.

It is known to be the best vintage cbr250 in the world for the MC17 model.  It is Ultra Rare… and Almost none existent. (only made one year, and only available in Japan). also on top of all this it claims to be the fastest and most torque at the lowest RPM out of any other 250 4stroke produced. It starts first shot and runs amazing and like brand new in every way imagined.. totally mint without one flaw.

The bike is spotless and over the past winter was accepted into the Toronto Motorcycle International Supershow..where it came 2nd in its class in the Vintage Japanese Sportbike class out of many other bikes and was the lowest cc in the class by minus 500cc… (3rd was a slingshot 750, 1st was a gsxr 1000) to be honest i should of stole the prize haha but that just the way it goes, it was a great experience.

On top of being in for the award, it got excepted into a very special and most prestigious hall…The Century Of Motorcycles…. this hall made up 50 bikes that were hand picked by the producers of the show to represent a Century of motorcycles and mine was elected into this hall. I am from Toronto Ontario Canada and it is a clear title with the ownership and is ready to purchase and ride, or for your museum or collection…. this bike will never be for sale again in the way it is at this moment in time…It is a true piece of history..the one and only,………….serious buyers please.

So there you have it – the best CBR250 MC17 Hurricane there is in the world.  Seriously, it’s a super nice bike in near new condition. Whether it is worth the $15,000 asking price – well, I’ll just grab a coffee and watch the auction run.

1989 Yamaha RZ350

For you lucky northern residents we have a Canadian market 1989 Yamaha RZ350 located in Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada.  The seller claims that this bike has an unbelievable (it doesn’t look like it in the pictures) 29,000km (16k mi).  Shown in an excellent looking blue and yellow paint scheme, this bike looks showroom new–either it is, or the seller is good with a camera.  There are some evident scratches around the triple-clamp, but for being twenty years old, this bike looks almost perfect.  If I were a Canadian resident I would seriously consider this fine looking example.  See the eBay ad here.

The Honda VFR750R, frame designation ‘RC30’, was a fully faired racing motorcycle created for homologation purposes for the World Superbike championship by Honda Racing Corporation (HRC). It was first released to the Japanese market in 1987. American enthusiasts had to wait until 1990 to get their hands on an RC30. The final one hundred RC30 machines were made for England in 1990.

The title and registration, combined with the the obvious care and thoughtful upgrades, make this bike a standout. I’m not sure I’ve ever seen one listed for sale in recent memory. What do you guys think of the $16k asking?
