Have you been looking for that special sport bike to set you apart from the crowd? You might want to keep reading then. You can be damn sure that you will turn some heads on the 1,415 mile CBR1000RR Repsol.


What more could you ask for? A low mileage good looking… wait a minute. Yep, It’s a trike. Well, hats off to someone for spending $30k on building a three-wheeled wonder. I guess if you’re aren’t into it, then at least it comes with everything to put it back to stock. Build quality is top notch, I will give it that.

Medium Rare: 2009 Honda CBR1000RR Repsol Edition

For Sale: 2009 Honda CBR1000RR Repsol Edition

RSBFS reader and fan Martin pointed this one out to us. His description was perfect:
If you are going to get a CBR, this might be the one.

Martin’s rationale is simple: While the Repsol Edition CBR-RR is not uber rare, it pays to find the best possible example you can. And while this is true of collecting in general, condition is what sets a bike apart from the crowd when there might be many to choose from. Considering the number of Repsol Edition CBRs available right now, this particular bike with fewer than 700 miles is nearly new.

From the seller:
Great looking race replica Repsol CBR1000RR Limited Edition. With 669 miles, this bike is not even fully broken in yet. You are getting a like new bike for a used price. An older gentlemen sold this bike to us outright because he had back surgery and could no longer ride it. The tires still have the little nipples on them. Not a flaw on the bike! The pictures speak for themselves.

There has been some questions to whether or not this is a real Repsol Edition. I assure you it is the real deal. The model code within the VIN is “SC59J” stating is it a 2009 Respol Edition CBR1000RR. The standard CBR1000RR model code for 2009 was “SC59G”

In what is certainly a case of “you get what you pay for” you will also note that the price for a nearly new CBR1000RR is higher than many of the other Repsol bikes currently listed that have either higher mileage, modifications, damage, or all three. This one has a straight up price of $9,995, which is surprisingly inline with most of the other similar bikes on eBay right now (except for this one – the seller must think he has a RC30 with a funny paint job…).

To check out this bike and get all the gory details, jump on over to the auction. And thanks for the tip, Martin!

Canadian Mystery: 2010 Honda HRC Kitted CBR1000RR And CBR600RR

Canadian Mystery:  2010 Honda HRC Kitted CBR1000RR And CBR600RR


Damn, no sooner do  I get used to coming in late and taking extra long lunches and  I get a note from the boss that RSBFS reader Tim has done my job and done it quite well.  Tim spotted these two CBR’s for sale and then did a little investigating.  He noticed the seller has also listed some Jordan Szoke leathers for sale.  A little more interneting found Szoke had some sponsorship from  DeWildt Honda in 2010 but has since signed with BMW.  If BMW is paying the bills you can’t have Honda’s in the garage.  Adding two and two together I think you can make the assumption that these are indeed  Jordan Szokes former bikes.  If they aren’t,  blame Tim!


Whats on the CBR1000:

Hotbodies Bodywork/Windscreen
K-tech fork internals
Offset triple clamps
HRC Showa rear shock
Lightech clip ons
HRC Quick turn throttle
Motoholders Birdcage
Motoholders sub frame

Lightech resists

EBC rear waved rotor
Sunstar sprockets
DID chain
HRC wiring harness (traction control-power adjust-mapping)
HRC alternator
HRC fuel pump assembly
Undercut transmission
Dyno jet power commander 5
Dyno jet quickshifter
Dyno jet auto tune
HRC velocity stacks
NGK plugs
HRC cams
HRC valves
HRC springs
HRC Head
Ackropic titanium full exhaust

What’s on the CBR600:

HRC Everything
HRC exhaust
HRC alternator
HRC wiring harness – ECU
HRC engine mods
HRC velocity stacks
HRC gages
HRC etc etc
Showa Shocks and Forks
Brembo Master
Motoholders sufbrame and birdcage
Sharkskins Bodywork


The 600 apparently only has a couple of track days under its’ belt and both bikes are located in Canada.


Asking price on the 1000 is $22,500 and here is the ad.

Asking price on the 600 is $15,000 and here is the ad.



The CBR1000RR in question?  This might be him on a 2009 CBR.



Rare Sport Bike Parts For Sale May 29, 2012 posted by

Parts Bin: HRC CBR1000RR Swing Arm And HRC RC30/45 Radiator

Parts Bin: HRC CBR1000RR Swing Arm And HRC RC30/45 Radiator

Here is another installment of go fast goodies that your significant other thinks you shouldn’t waste your money on.

Is it wrong to be in love with a radiator?

The info:

ULTRA RARE HRC Triple Stack World Superbike Radiator. This was purchased from the Honda WSB team at Laguna Seca in 1995. This is an extremely rare piece and I would be surprised if anyone has seen one for sale EVER. this was bought for a project bike by me years ago and the project went thru many changes and this piece was never used. The picture with the ruler shows the mount spacing for the two top mounts. I unfortunately lost the part number for this piece over the years so I do not have that.
This piece retailed from HRC to the privateer teams for $10,000. Yes that is correct, 10K!!!!!

I do remember reading that some radiators the Yoshimura bikes were using in the Mladin days ran around $12,000.

That damn thing is a work of art. The seller believes it will fit either an RC 30 or RC45. Given the year it was purchased, I’m guessing it is designed for an RC45. Anyone in the know?

Nobody said racers were the brightest bulbs.

The seller is asking roughly $4,500 but is open to offers. Check it out.

How about a swing arm off of Josh Brooks’ 2010 HM Plant Honda CBR? Yeah, they will throw in the linkage as well. I’m guessing you are getting more strength while losing some weight.

The asking price is 500 British Pounds which seems quite low to me for a modern kit part such as this. Inquire here for more info on it.

Ex-racers: ultimate track day weapons! Part 1 – Honda

Two Swan Honda British Superbike CBR1000RR  Fireblade ex-race bikes for sale!

**Just a quick apology to everyone. I missed one of the auction end dates on Phil’s series of race bike posts. Please accept my apology and I hope you enjoy**

We go on harping about rare bikes such as the Bimotas and Ducatis (well, some of them), and in their own right they are, but sometimes a bike comes along that not only has all the trick parts on it but also race pedigree that just blows all the other “rare” bikes away – and these ex-BSB race bikes definitely fit that description.  Here’s part 1 of a 3-part mini series of some amazing factory race bikes for sale:

Available for sale are the two Superbikes as used to win BSB races in 2009 and 2010, ridden by Stuart Easton, James Ellison and Karl Harris.

The specifications are too complex to list on here.

However we can guarantee that these are 2 of the best bikes raced in the 2010 Superbike championship, (and better than most WSBK machines) using the highest technology to control throttle, power and engine braking.

They have the best chassis technology, electronics and engine components available on the market.

The bikes and especially the engines have been maintained to the highest standards, all components are mileaged and replaced as required by our strict limits on use.

As stated it is impossible to list everything on here, if you are a serious potential buyer then please contact us for more information on how to view the bikes and the full specifications.

We have wheels, 3 spares engines and full gearbox options available for each engine plus many many spares available, packages to be agreed for buyer.

Price listed of £35000 +vat is base price machine only, deal to be arranged for spare engine, wheels et\.

Not a lot of info there I know, but when it’s an ex-BSB race bike ridden by the likes of Stuart Easton, James Ellison and Karl Harris, what more do you need to know?  £35000 is approximately equivalent to US$56,000 – a lot of money for sure – but with that money you’re getting 2 bikes with race winning pedigree plus a boat load of spares (probably enough to build a third bike), so it’s not outrageous as it may sound.

If this Swan Honda race bike speaks to you (quack quack?  Geddit?  Swan? Sorry, I just couldn’t resist…), .

1991 Honda CBR400RR Titled & Registered In California

Another very nice CBR400RR has popped up in Northern California this time!  Located in Dublin, California is a titled and registered CBR400RR with no mileage listed.  This bike features a 2007 CBR1000RR front end with radial brakes, Penske rear shock, HRC ECU, and the regulator/rectifier modification.  This bike currently has the CBR front end but an RVF400 front end is also available at a different price.  The seller states that this bike is an exceptional example but, does feature some nicks and blemishes.  Service history includes:

Both front ends have recently been serviced, re-sprung and re-valved by Aftershocks. New DID x-ring chain. The tank has recently been cleaned. The carburetors have just been completely gone through by Donny Babb at Modesto Ducati. This bike runs perfect.

The asking price for the bike with the CBR1000RR front end is $6,500 and $5,500 with the RVF400R front end.  Personally, I would buy the bike with the RVF front end, save the money on the purchase and possibly upgrade to the CBR1000RR front end sometime in the future as the RVF front ends are only getting rarer and the CBR1000RR front ends are only getting cheaper.

When these CBR’s were available, they had all the features of a big CBR just in a smaller package.  They feature a DOHC, four valve per cylinder, transverse four cylinder, four stroke, producing 53hp and rev’ing to 14,500rpm.  An aluminum frame kept weight down to 163kg and they featured a Showa adjustable rear shock and flat-side carb’s .  This bike is just as exotic to us American’s as any other gray import but, features the dependability of a Honda four-stroke.  See the 1994 example Jay posted not too long ago here.  If you’re interested-and as always, you should be–see this bike on Craigslist here.

EDIT:  The bike was on Craigslist but, kept getting flagged.  The seller has posted it on BARF and it can be seen here.
