1995 Honda CBR600F3 Smokin Joe’s

1995 Honda CBR600F3 Smokin Joes for sale

While not as exotic as many of the listings we usually display, this Smokin Joe’s CBR600F3 is one of the best we’ve seen with just 4,500 miles. Seller states it has usually been stored inside and only the signals and muffler have been modified.

Have a good week all!

s-l1600

from the seller’s listing:

Selling a first year collector Smoking Joe Edition Honda CBR600 F3. This bike is in excellent mechanical and cosmetic condition. It has been stored inside for most of its life. Motorcycle is all stock with the exception of a removeable tank bra, turn signals and an aftermarket exhaust slip-on. Parts are still readily available for this motorcycle so if you are a collector, sourcing turn signals and the slip-on is no problem.

Not much more I can say about this motorcycle. This is the race replica paintjob after Miguel Duhamel won the AMA championship in 1995. This bike is sure to continue to rise in value over time as they have become quite rare.

Please feel free to email me with any questions you may have about this motorcycle. I am selling off 4 or 5 of my collector Honda models so have a look at my other auctions.

This motorcycle is located in Bradenton, FL.

Smokin’ Joes Honda CBR600F3 with…. 1 mile?

 1996 Smokin’ Joe’s Honda CBR600F3 on eBay

If you’re like me, you grew up watching Miguel Duhamel at the front of AMA Superbike and Supersport races throughout the 1990s. The Smokin’ Joe’s livery is probably his best known ride and this was as close as the masses could get to it.  If you want this one for your collection, it’s going to cost you as the seller’s starting bid is $8000.  Why so much, you ask?  Well if the condition shown in the first picture didn’t grab your attention, the odometer should.

That’s right RSBFS readers, you just hopped in Doc Brown’s time machine and went back to your local dealer showroom circa 1996.  The seller adds a little more information in his eBay listing here:  http://bit.ly/1zfPgLX

However, in this case, the pictures say enough:

Brand New, Never titled, never started. Smokin Joe Edition. Signed by Miguel Duhamell. Has only been on display. Custom built pipe built for the bike by Supertrapp.

I’m a small time collector, but I also like to ride my bikes… so I’d have a very hard time not taking it out for a spin.  However, at this point I don’t think you can.  It has been cemented into display status and should probably stay there.  So what is it worth to you to have something that NOBODY else has?  No miles, never been started, signed by Miguel himself.  Let the debate begin now.

No Surgeon General Warning Needed for this! 1998 Honda CBR600F3 Smokin’ Joe’s Edition

Location: Wausau, Wisconsin

Miles: 3,362

Price: Currently $2,385 with Reserve in place

Update 3.12.2012: Originally posted in September 2011, this bike is back on eBay. Links updated. -dc

Oh how I love race replica bikes. Especially ones that feature the sponsorship of big tobacco companies such as this Lucky Strike RGV250SP and this Marlboro Yamaha RZ500 replica featured recently on the site. Ok, so maybe plastering a harmful product on the side of a bike isn’t the most politically correct thing, but that is exactly why I dig it! And this CBR600F3 is definitely a reminder of days gone by.

This Smokin’ Joe’s CBR600 sure appears to be in very good shape for a 14 year old bike. The seller does state that there are a couple small scrapes from rubbing against a brush while moving it and some black plastic pieces are a little dull from age. However, the bike is completely original, even down to the tires. Obviously if you wanted to ride this particular bike, a fresher tire would be recommended.

More from the seller:

” For sale is my 1998 Honda CBR 600 F3 Smokin Joes Special Edition with only 3362 Miles. To my knowledge there were only 500 of these bikes produced in the USA. I may be incorrect on this but the last 3 digits of the VIN are supposed to represent the number of the bike made. For this bike it is 214, which should mean this is #214 of #500 produced. This is a very sharp looking bike which I have rarely driven. I have owned this motorcycle for 10 years and it is just time for a change. The bike has never been modified and is completely original. I bought this bike a while back because I loved the looks of it. I ended up loving my car a little more so I never drove this much. I never wanted to part with it because I liked the way it looked. I drove it once every spring, once every summer and once every fall to make sure it was running fine. The bike was professionally tuned up twice and currently has a brand new battery that is just a couple months old. The bike was stored in a garage for the summers, once and a while I would keep it outside. In the winter it was stored in a garage a couple years but most of the time it was in heated storage. The bike was never laid down but it did rub up against a brush once while moving it. There are a couple minor scratches on the right side of the bike. Nothing major but they are there. The only other thing wrong with the bike would be a few pieces of black plastic trim look a little dull after the years have gone by. Other than the couple minor scratches, everything on the bike is in excellent condition. It would be what you expect for a bike with only 3362 miles on it. Most of these bikes have been crashed or parted out so the real number left is much less than produced. I would find it extremely hard to find another smoking joes bike in this condition with this low of miles. The bike always ran premium gas and the tank has the signature of Miguel Duhamel which was the driver of the race bike that this bike is modeled after. I took a photo of the front and rear tires. They are still the original tires, show a little weathering from being original but they still have tons of life left on them.”

Sure the F3 isn’t the highest performing bike by today’s standards with 105hp and weighing roughly 420lbs. But finding a clean example of an F3 is becoming difficult and the Smokin’ Joe’s replica is even harder to come by. Bidding is active (up to $2,385), but with reserve still in place. And no, “Camel Cash” probably isn’t an acceptable form of currency. Place your bid on this 1998 CBR600F3 Smokin Joes Edition here!

1996 Honda CBR600F3 With 2,579 Miles, As Seen On Our Facebook Page

A gorgeous, low mileage, CBR600F3 now on eBay!

Bike:  1996 Honda CBR600F3

Miles:  2,579

Price:  $3,850 BIN with bidding at $2,550 with reserve not met.

Location:  New Jersey

This bike was originally seen on Craigslist and posted on our Facebook feed; and I know, many of you may not follow us on Facebook because you don’t have a Facebook account, well, that’s usually where the nice deals of the day from Craigslist have been getting posted!  Anyway, this gorgeous example has made it to the shark infested waters of eBay.  This is a 1996 Honda CBR600F3 with 2,579 original miles!  The seller states that everything on this bike is completely original as if it just left the factory.  The pictures agree, this is a fantastic paint scheme–one of my favorites for the F3–and it isn’t too outrageously priced either.  You’ll find the majority of F3’s beaten to within an inch of their lives and having an asking price of $2,200 on Craigslist during the nicer months, making this one look quite attractive if the reserve is several hundred under the BIN price.  If nothing else, buying this bike would be a much better experience than finding out if you’re good at day trading–probably cheaper too.  See this nice looking F3 on eBay .  See Dan’s original post featuring this bike here.

Mint 1996 Smoking Joe CBR600

Mint 1996 Smoking Joe CBR600

Boy, how times have changed.  Remember when big tobacco sponsored lots of race teams?  I wonder if a tobacco company still sponsored a team if they’d even produce  a replica of it?  Ducati didn’t even put Marlboro stickers on the team edition of the Desmosdeci.  Political correctness aside, this CBR is a pretty darn nice time capsule.  It has turned just over 2,200 miles.  If you don’t believe the odometer check out the close up shots of the engine below.  It looks showroom fresh.

From the auction:

Practically new Smokin Joe cbr600…has been riden VERY little, spent majority of its life in a climate controlled office as display…ONLY 2,244 miles and you can tell by looking at it, original everything! unmolested and just like it came off the showroom floor! this is for the serious collector and is an awesome piece…buyer must arrange for shipping or pickup as i dont have the time to do all of that but i can deliver it locally at no charge….bike is beautiful and mint, pics speak for themselves!! i have perfect feedback and plan on keeping it that way so it will be exactly as described, no surprises…selling this for my close friend as he is in the military and doesnt have the time to sell it himself, i have the bike and clear title in my possesion, so as mentioned earlier, no surprises….If you ever wanted one of these rare bikes, this is definitely the nicest i have ever seen!!! 

 

 If you are interested you don’t have time to waste.  The auction is down to the final couple of days.  This will be another bike where you toss out the book value.  You are going to pay a premium for those low miles.  Is it worth it?  To the right person absolutely.  Very few 600cc sport bikes avoid the thrashing they were designed to take.  So drop the smokes and .

1996 Honda CBR 600 F3 Smokin Joe’s edition

1996 Honda CBR 600 F3 Smokin Joe’s edition with only 1 mile!

1996 HONDA CBR600 SMOKIN JOE’S EDITION! AFTERMARKET LIMITED EDITION KERKER EXHAUST! FACTORY WARRANTY! NEVER HAD GAS IN IT!

Hmm… So when I first saw this on the auction site today I was a bit undecided about what to do with it. Should I push it to the other guys, post it myself or just leave it be? Well, I guess you know what I decided to do by now so here are my thoughts-

1. Since it has “never had gas in it!” I applaud the owner(s) for pushing a 400+# motorcycle for 1 mile.
2. Why would anyone want to keep a run of the mill F3 for 14 years?
3. No gas + Snazzy Kerker exhaust = no tuning, but you get a factory warranty?? SWEET!

So I have to believe that this gem is sitting at a dealership in Amherst, OH on the MCO. Which is all fine and dandy, but at what cost you might be asking? Well, the starting bid is $8,999.00 with no reserve to climb over. Not cheap by any stretch and certainly more than it sold for when new. I had a 97 F3 that I think I paid something like $6,500.00(?) for. I’m guessing the market for a 14 year old F3 is pretty narrow by anyone’s standard and by my standard it’s about as narrow as a gnat’s butt. However, I know there are several collectors who follow our site so maybe it’ll get picked up for the shelf because I know there can’t be anyone around who would pay 9g’s for 14 year old technology and ride it on a daily basis, but maybe I’m misjudging someone and if so I apologize in advance.

The upside to all of this opinionated blabbering is the bike is brand new, comes with a tasty Kerker exhaust already installed and has the full factory warranty still in place! Interested?

Cheers!

1998 Honda CBR600F3 SE Smokin’ Joe Edition

Now, I know, generally CBRs aren’t rare at all but a Smokin’ Joe Ed. is somewhat rare and this is supposedly the first ’98.  Located in Morgan Hill, California is a clean looking 1998 CBR600F3.  The seller only states that: “This bike is CLEAN. Low miles, new tires, upgraded exhaust…This bike was the FIRST Smokin Joe EVER made, VIN shows ..001”  This last part isn’t entirely true but it may be the first 1998 SE–with the probable VIN of JH2PC253*WM750001.  The seller is asking $5,000.  If you’re a collector or just looking for something different, this might be worth a look.  See the ad on Craigslist here.
