Gold cup: 2007 Aprilia RSV Mille R Bol d’Or

If you’re into Italian superbikes with big, torquey twins, gorgeous styling, impeccable kit and a definite air of exclusivity, now is a phenomenal time to cast your eyes toward early-mid aughts Aprilia RSV Milles. Relative to the other Italian marque famed for its muscular twins, Aprilias can be had for a song, and since they sported Rotax mills until fairly recently, they’re as reliable as death and taxes.

2007 Aprilia RSV Mille R Bol d’Or for sale on eBay

Also like their Bolognese rivals, Aprilia wasn’t afraid of the odd special edition, and this 2007 Aprilia RSV Mille R Bol d’Or is a perfect example of that. One of 200 examples built between 2007 and 2008, it is simply a Mille R with a special paintjob that apes the bikes Aprilia ran in the superstock class at the 2006 Bol D’or 24 hour race. Underneath that odd-but-cool red, green, white and purple livery lurks a 143-horsepower beast held up on either end with Ohlins springy bits. It also rocks forged wheels, a carbon fiber fender and — sorry, friends — a solo tail section.

From the eBay listing:

I am liquidating my collection, please check out my other listings I will be posting

This is my Near Mint RSVR1000, Super Low Mileage

Bike was leaned over onto grass (right side), please see photo’s of miner blemishes / decals, Otherwise Perfect.

(I think with $500 of touch up the bike can be mint)

Only upgrade is Akropovic titanium slip on’s ($1,500), I still have the OEM cans

Bike rides amazing.

NO RESERVE AUCTION

Any questions?

Thanks

As the seller states, aside from some blemishes on one side, it is in beautiful condition. It has also been ridden sparingly, with just under 3,000 miles to show. An Akrapovic exhaust has been added to help it stand out from any others you might see — as if that would ever happen. Speaking of rarity, this is the second such bike we’ve run across in the last two weeks, which means if you missed out on the last one, all hope is not lost.

Featured Listing: Wild custom 1997 Moto Guzzi Centauro

Leave it to the Greeks to dream up a mythical half-man-half-horse that signifies chaos, power, lustfulness and general hooliganism as both an inspirational and cautionary metaphor. Strength and vigor are virtues, to be sure, but color outside the lines and the benevolent beasts turn into terrifying monsters. Leave it to the Italians to apply that metaphor to motorcycles.

1997 Moto Guzzi Cenaturo for sale on eBay

Not only do Italians often refer to motorcyclists as centauro, beautifully capturing everything that we love and respect about the passion, but they built a bike to suit the myth.

The Moto Guzzi Centauro is basically a finely-crafted, specced-up Italian VMax. There’s a big vtwin mill, more power and torque than is reasonable, an upright riding position and Muscle Beach bodywork. There’s also finely crafted suspension, state-of-the-art for the time fuel injection, and brakes like Myron’s discus. Reviewers at the time weren’t as kind as Guzzi had hoped, but nobody could deny the thing’s presence.

Today’s 1997 Moto Guzzi Centauro takes presence to another planet. The seller bought it with the idea of having master customizer Craig Rodsmith build something truly special around its rare-as-hen’s-teeth overhead cam vtwin. The big mill is enough to stop traffic on its own, and the owner wanted something that would show off those trademark heads that hang out in the breeze.

We’ll leave the rest of the description in his capable hands.

From the eBay listing:

I have a passion for motorcycles and I have been riding since 1976. I specially like the Moto Guzzi brand and over the past 30 years I have had the pleasure of owning many of the models such as the LeMans I, LeMans III, 1000S (big carb), T3 stock, T3 Café, Elodrado Police, Eldorado civilian, two Daytonas, and two Centrauros.

You can say that I know a “little” bit about these bikes!

I have NOT even ridden this bike 10mi since completion ~2+ years ago! ☹ It is in perfect shape and ready for a new owner. The bike really looks and sounds better than the photos.

This build is based on the very rare overhead cam (OHC) engine. This rare engine was offered for a few years on the Daytona and the Centauro ONLY! The cylinders/heads are giant and thus they make for an amazing look! 😊

This is not some hacked up motorcycle. The chassis is the stock Centauro chassis, with rear section modified for the seat. Complete body work built by master builder Craig Rodsmith, 100% painted, plated, polished, and assembled, and then final once over by Ducati Master Tech. and AMA racer.

Imagine removing 100lbs from the stock Centauro and then having a low restriction exhaust and intake. There is NOTHING like an OHC Guzzi! You can hear the intake and the exhaust… There is nothing like this bike! PERIOD. If you have never ridden a Guzzi then this is your chance!

STORY:

I love the OHC Guzzi engine and the Café style motorcycles. And so when I learned about Craig Rodsmith and his amazing talent, I was very much interested in seeing what he could do for me. We met, and we discussed the build and he shared with me his thoughts and we agreed.

Craig is a very well recognized master builder and has built numerous fully functional and museum grade motorcycles. If you are into café bikes, then I am sure that you have heard of him or seen his work. His work is amazing and specially since he does so much work in aluminum and his passion and expertise really shows in his work.

You can find examples of his work at the following places:

https://www.facebook.com/rodsmithcustoms/

Starting Point on the Bike:

The starting point was my Maroon 1997 Moto Guzzi Centauro with ~7,000 miles. You can see the photo the day that the project started.

This bike was mint, always stored inside, never sat outside, very well maintained, and always ran like a dream.

So, my low mileage, mint and very well cared for 1997 Moto Guzzi Centauro was the starting point for Craig.

Craig’s amazing work:

It is probably best to look at the photos, and I will list the long list of his amazing work. And I cannot even begin to list everything that he designed, engineered, and built on his build. – Almost all aluminum

From Front to Back!!!

Aluminum front fender

pinstriped center with “trick” mounting brackets to the lower fork.

Custom Aluminum headlamp housing with modern headlamp and lens

Tachometer integrated in the headlamp

Palo Alto speedometer reworked gage to work perfectly

Italian Clip-ons

Custom made aluminum fuel tank

Polished

Painted and Pinstriped – just gorgeous

Custom rear Sub-frame (steel)

attaches to the stock frame (backbone)

Custom Aluminum solo seat

Painted, Polished, and Pinstriped

Beautiful high-grade Brown leather diamond stitch work

Aluminum front fender

Designed to be removable for the more naked look

Custom stainless exhaust

You cannot see the welds

Cross-over under the bike

Custom velocity stack with screens

Sensor incorporated in the base.

Foot pegs and all controls ground smooth and polished

Battery tucked in under the transmission

Everything is polished

Custom paint and Pinstriping of the engine, body, frame, and wheels

Engine and Transmission:

100% Stock and unmodified.

Runs perfect!

All fins on engine and transmission are polished for that great look.

This is the OHC engine where as many of the Guzzis are OHV. This rare engine was only offered on the Daytona and the Centauro. The cylinders/heads are giant and thus they make for an amazing look! 😊

Electrical & Electronics:

In some custom bikes the harness gets all butchered up, but not on this bike.

Craig carefully saved the harness since all the sensors are used and the engine controller is stock.

The harness is very neatly folded back, and hidden, while the electronics are beautifully mounted on a tray under the seat.

Engine ECM is beautifully mounted under seat

The wiring for the turn signals is there and the turn signal switch is there if you choose to install some. (No turn signals on the bike)

All electronic and electrics is untouched

Other Mechanical work:

Upon the completion of the bike, I dropped off the motorcycle at Chicago Motoworks with Master Ducati Technician and AMA racer. He completely went through the bike again, dialed-in, and safety checked the entire motorcycle:

Re-torqued and double checked every fastener on the bike

Lubricated all bearing and reset everything

New fluids: engine/transmission/final drive/brake

New braided brake lines

Adjustable steering damper

New Tires, Brake pads, …

Etc.

Performance: Imagine removing 100lbs from the stock Centauro and then having a low restriction exhaust and intake. There is NOTHING like an OHC Guzzi! You can hear the intake and the exhaust… There is nothing like this bike! PERIOD.

FLAW: One flaw around the fuel fill some paint peeled off because I overfilled and did not wipe fast enough…my fault. If I get a chance, I will have a pinstripe master clean it up for $100.

Other Important stuff:

Clean and Clear title to this bike in my name (I am the owner!) – registered as 1997 Moto Guzzi Centauro

VIN intact and in place.

For $28,999, you can bring home the unique fruits of the owner and Craig’s creativity and craftsmanship. Move quickly, this thing is destined for a perch worthy of Zeus.

Featured Listing: 2003 Aprilia RSV Mille R

Thanks to a successful shopping trip on RSBFS, our buddy Marty has to let go of this beautiful 2003 Aprilia RSV Mille R. I think given his druthers, he’d hang on to both early-aughts Aprilias, but life is full of tough choices. The decision to let go of the big Mille must have been especially tough given that this one is a well-ridden but well-maintained example of Ohlins-sporting R model with a factory titanium exhaust.

In addition to the normal Mille’s 1,000 cc, 115-horsepower v-twin, the Mille R had a lighter, shortened subframe, OZ Racing forged wheels, a carbon fiber front fender and the aforementioned Ohlins suspension. The results, predictably, were ludicrous speed backed up by prodigious grip and micron-perfect handling. Marty bought his bike three years ago from an Air Force aircraft mechanic, who was predictably fastidious about its care. As the pictures show, its condition belies its 17,000 miles.

With a recent and thorough going-over, this beast is ready to make someone’s fall riding season perfect.

From the seller:

Up for sale here is a classic version of pure Italian rolling artwork. A beautiful 2003 Aprilia RSV Mille R. Approx 17500 miles on the 60 degree V twin but you would never guess it as it has been extremely well cared for. I purchased the bike a few years ago after much research and a two year hunt with the intent of putting it on the track. And even though RoadCarver mag called it” one of the very best production bikes you can ride on a track” , I just could not bring myself to thrash it around NJMP. It had survived it such a state that it was meant to be enjoyed in other ways. The bike is a joy to ride, does not stretch you out in the riding position, and turns heads everywhere you go. And did I mention the sound. I ride mostly on the track and this is up for sale to pay for my addiction and recent new addition to my collection.
This was an almost 20000$ bike in 03 and the list of state of the art racing components Aprilia had to offer reads well.
A few highlights
60 degree Rotax Bulletproff V twin
Alloy twin spar frame
43 mm Ohlins inverted tele. Forks
Ohlins monoshock and steering damper
Forged Aluminum OZ racing wheels
Close ratio 6 speed gearbox
Twin 320 fronts with Brembo 4 piston radial calipers
Carbon fiber everywhere
Bike has been garage kept and routinely gets frequent neighborhood rides all year long. Starts right up and pulls like a freight train.
New battery earlier this year. Bike was sorted by Markbilt racebikes in NJ when I got it. Ohlins serviced, brake lines flushed and refreshed, clutch adjusted, new fuel pump.
Has factory Aprilia racing exhaust(stock included in sale), and a carbon fiber Sargent seat. Also have a complete set of factory decals.
Clear title.

$8500.
Contact Marty at 267-530-2818.

Do your research. This is a up and coming collectors item. Great to ride. Even better to stare at. And did I mention that sound! Thanks for looking.

At $8,500, it’s hard to go wrong with such a well-maintained and beautiful machine. It may not say Ducati on the side, but it’ll run with the Bolognese bruisers all day, and just try getting a special-edition Duc for that.

Featured Listing: 2002 Ducati Monster S4 Fogarty

It was never going to be sufficient for Ducati to commemorate Carl Fogarty’s contributions to motorcycling with yet another race replica superbike with faux sponsor livery. Sure, go ahead and remember Ben Bostrom and Troy Bayliss with tarted-up 999Rs, but Foggy deserved something altogether hairier. Until Jonathan Rea came along in 2018, he was the winningest World Superbike racer ever. When this 2002 Ducati Monster S4 Fogarty was built, he was a man without equal in motorcycle roadracing.

The 2002 Ducati Monster S4 Fogarty is a perfect tribute, with special paint, upgraded suspension bits, carbon Termignoni cans and carbon trim pieces, the Fogarty’s “Foggy Eyes” logo and a 916 Desmoquattro engine that was warmed up to about 110 horsepower. In short, a brawny, aggressive hooligan machine that was more about encompassing who Foggy is than giving you the tools to emulate his corner-speed-first style.

This one is number 12 of just 300 built, one of 225 never intended to make it to the United States. It has Metric instrumentation with only 13 original kilometers. To say it’s mint is a bit of an understatement. From the seller:

2002 Ducati S4 Fogarty
Vin# ZDM1RB8S02B007442

Featured Listing: Zero-mile 1997 Bimota VDue time capsule

CMG Motorcycles has two motorcycles on RSBFS right now, a 0 mile VDue and a brand new Bimota Tesi! Check them both out! -dc

There is no more tantalizing bike on the planet for me than the Bimota VDue. A bespoke Italian chassis from the finest boutique bike maker on the planet, draped with exotic suspension and prodigious brakes with fuel injection, the waistline of a ballerina and 110 or so two-stroke horsepower. A dream machine for the ages, it was supposed to kick Bimota into a new market segment in a cloud of sweet-smelling blue smoke. Instead, the dream went up like a Persian Gulf oil field and took the iconic nameplate down with it. 

Bad power delivery, seizing pistons, oil leaks plagued the first couple hundred VDues, and most owners returned them. Fixing the issues, which meant sticking carburetors on and invalidating the bikes for street use, ruined Bimota’s finances. Eventually, an engineer on the team that put the idea together bought the leftovers and fixed them. He sold about 120 that put out more than 120 street-legal two-stroke ponies, but by that point the toothpaste was out of the tube. 

This 1997 Bimota VDue never experienced any of those issues, because it has racked up exactly zero miles in its 22-year life. It is a literal museum piece in absolutely flawless cosmetic condition. Given the likelihood that its mechanicals are absolutely useless, both by design and from sitting, this thing is perfect for a collector who needs the finishing touch on a prestigious collection. 

Having never moved under its own power, it wears its original tires, which are now shiny from sitting around vulcanizing for a couple decades. But that’s no matter. When else will you get the chance to own a bike that is original and untouched down to the protective film on the windscreen? The thing we love most is that this bike is in its best state: an unblemished embodiment of bold vision and faith in engineering. It deserves to stay that way.

It is available in Christchurch, New Zealand for $48,990 USD and requests and inquiries can be sent to Brad by email  – here –.

Featured Listing: 1977 Ducati 900SS

Update 8.1.2019: Joe has renewed his Featured Listings. Check out all of Joe’s bikes for sale on RSBFS! Many thanks for choosing us to help move your collection! -dc

We’re on a roll over here with rare Italian beauties from our buddy Joe, and this 1977 Ducati 900SS is no exception. It might not quite carry the provenance of his MV Agusta 750S America, but a ‘77 900SS is absolutely nobody’s idea of plain.

The Ducati Super Sports entered the market just as Ducati had finished establishing itself as a maker of world-beating race bikes. Paul Smart won the Imola 200 aboard a Ducati Super Sport in 1972, after which the 90-degree v-twins became synonymous with Italian racing prowess. The early SS bikes had right-side shift and almost no provisions for DOT-legal street equipment. Such as, you know, turn signals.

Fast forward to 1977, and Ducati decided that the American market was primed for its desmodromic-valved beasts, and the 1977 Ducati 900SS made its way to our shores in extremely limited numbers. Just 137 of the featherweight, 80-horsepower repli-racers landed here that year, but they had an immediate and forceful impact.

This Ducati 900SS has been restored completely with gorgeous paintwork.

From the seller:

1977 Ducati Super Sport

You should know that I am a serious collector, with a large and important motorcycle collection. I decided to sell some of the most valuable motorcycles in the collection. These motorcycles represent some of the most iconic motorcycles of the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s. Those motorcycles are now being offered up for sale one by one. These motorcycles were targeted by me for adding to my collection many years ago when the best of the best were available and that is exactly what I purchased.

In general, I do believe super rare Italian motorcycle of the 1970s and 1980s are the future Ferrari of motorcycle collecting. We all know what has happened to Ferrari.

It doesn’t take much introduction to talk about a 1977 Ducati 900 SS. They seldom come up for sale and when they do they generally look like they have been ridden hard and put away wet.

This particular bike was restored in Chicago and definitely under the supervision of the famous Dr. Desmo. It is kept on a trickle charger and exercised regularly during the warm weather. Restored to perfection and still makes an outstanding presence and performance at any show and is equally prepared to go on any extended ride and tour at a moment’s notice.

We all know what’s happened to the prices of the Ducati 750 SS’s and the 900 SS’s are not far behind. If you want the best just take a look at the pictures of this bike. You will see that it is the best of the best and then some. If you want technical information about the bike just check the Internet. It is loaded with that and plenty of road tests shortly after the bike was introduced to the public. As I have mentioned in some of the other bike ads for bikes coming out of our collection there is not question that the 900SS is the Ferrari of the future for motorcycles.

This bike is always kept in climate controlled storage and kept on a trickle charger and ready for a 500-mile trip on a moment’s notice. Check out the pictures and you will be impressed!

Most everyone would agree that the 750SS and the 900SS are the epitome of motorcycle design.

Given its rarity, condition and position as the spiritual birth of the American Ducati market, you’re not going to get this one for a steal. But the cash outlay will well be worth it to have this gem in your collection.

Featured Listing: 1974 MV Agusta 750 S America

Update 8.1.2019: Joe has renewed his Featured Listings. Check out all of Joe’s bikes for sale on RSBFS! Many thanks for choosing us to help move your collection! -dc

Back in 1974, there was no other bike to have, really. Regardless of what you were able to shop for, the MV Agusta 750S America was the bike you wanted. First of all, it was Italian, and red, which meant it had that little something extra that nobody else had. Temperamental, yes, and expensive to be sure, and perhaps not even the fastest thing on two wheels, but none of that mattered. It would more or less keep pace with the cruder, brawnier two strokes, and it would go around corners without killing you. Then there was the noise.

Whether you’re listening to a Colombo V-12 at full song, or the rorty throb of a Lancia Fulvia’s V4, or the percussive pop and rattle of a Ducati 900 SS/SP, the Italians long ago mastered the art of the proper internal combustion sound. The 750 S America may have them all beat, with a rhythmic, tachycardic and slightly uneven throbbing at idle cracking into a full-chested wail at higher revs. It’s quite the song and dance for 90 horsepower, but in its day the MV’s voice was the siren song of speed.

This 1974 MV Agusta 750S America is in magnificent shape, and appears to be all or almost all-original. The classic red-and-gold livery is without blemishes, and the bike’s numerous nooks and crannies appear to be clean enough to eat off of. The condition is thanks in large part to a fastidious seller, who has kept the bike stored in a heated facility and made sure that it remains ready to run.

From the seller:

You should know that I am a serious collector, with a large motorcycle collection.  I decided to sell some of the most valuable motorcycles in the collection.  These motorcycles represent some of the most iconic motorcycles ‘70s, ‘80s, and ‘90s.  Those motorcycles are now being offered up for sale one by one.  These motorcycles were targeted for by me for my collection many years ago when the best of the best was available and that is what I purchased.

In general, I do believe super rare Italian motorcycle of the ‘70s and ‘80s are the future Ferrari’s of motorcycle collecting.   We all know what has happened to Ferraris.

For many people the MV Augusta American is like the Ferrari of motorcycles.  It is a typically great Italian design that when new cost an unthinkable amount of money and has been held in the highest esteem since it was produced.

In the world of motorcycle collecting it is one of the most prestigious Italian bikes that you can have in your collection.   This bike, as far as we know, is entirely original.  It runs perfectly, and, is, without question, one of the best sounding motorcycle that were ever made and yes, it is kept in fully heated storage when not in use.   It is always kept on a trickle charger. It is ready to travel 500 miles on the first day.

If you ever heard of Ferrari GTO run through the gears you will know that the 1974 Augusta MV 750 S America has a very similar melodic sound of authority which is just music to the ears.

This is a very expensive bike for serious collectors.  It is a very limited production bike.  By searching the Internet, you can read all the accolades that have accumulated over time for this particular breed, this is for serious future collectors.

They are only original once.

Back in ’74, these things were the most expensive bikes on the street, with a raft of super-expensive parts keeping them out of the hands of you average grocery bagger. With just 550 or so MV Agusta 750S Americas built, the story is more or less the same today. If you have the means …

Featured Listing: 1973 Moto Guzzi V7 Sport

Update 8.1.2019: Joe has renewed his Featured Listings. Check out all of Joe’s bikes for sale on RSBFS! Many thanks for choosing us to help move your collection! -dc

If ever there was a bike to show up to a cruise night on, surely the 1973 Moto Guzzi V7 Sport is at or near the top of the list. The pundits all say it is the defining cafe racer shape, leaving the factory in the era before two-foot long license plate holders and 10,000 candlepower turn signals crept in to defile more modern machines’ lines. We tend to agree.

The V7 sport is adorned with absolutely nothing extraneous, its thin-tube frame, shapely tank and minimalist bodywork seem to embrace the prominent heads on the unmistakable Guzzi v-twin. Low bars, spoked wheels and twin chrome megaphone pipes complete the purposeful package.

Though it was made to celebrate and recall Guzzi’s mid-century racing successes, the V7 provides antiquated performance, with just 70 horsepower running through a very tall gearset. The mill revs quickly, but the eagerness is deceptive. Couple that with slightly scary drum brakes and a right-side-shift transmission and you’ve got a bike more suited to cruise nights than track days.

This 1973 Moto Guzzi V7 Sport is in immaculate condition. All the paint and brightwork have a brilliant shine and appear to be blemish free. The seller says he stores her bikes in a climate-controlled facility on trickle chargers, so there should be no worries about the mechanical condition of the bike.

From the seller:

In general, I do believe super rare Italian motorcycle of the 1970s and 1980s are the future Ferrari of motorcycle collecting. We all know what has happened to Ferrari.

If Italian collector sports bikes could be rated for handling, the Motor Guzzi V7 Sport would certainly score a 98 out of 100 points. They can just read your mind in terms of negotiating the curvy roads. If motorcycles were rated for sex appeal the 1973 Motor Guzzi V7 would score 101 out of 100 points. I don’t know of anything that is quite so simply designed yet pleases the visual senses so much. And, yes, this bike has the rare original exhaust pipes with the fins, and the sand cast brake drums (not the ‘not so pretty’ disc brakes) which is just a little frosting on the cake.

This bike is in top flight condition and runs like a Swiss clock, it is kept on a trickle charger at all times. There are no known issues. Just try and find a nicer one!

This is certainly a bike for serious collectors and for those that don’t know all the details, the internet is just loaded with information. I can only suggest that you scrutinize the pictures and decide for yourself if this is another rare Italian collector bike that will eventually become as iconic as the Ferrari automobile. I spent a decade looking for the best one and this is the best one I have ever seen.

All my bikes are kept in climate controlled storage and on trickle chargers when not in use so they are always ready to take a day’s ride at a moment’s notice.

Check out the pictures and be a little amazed – you are seeing the best!
