1990 Honda MC21 NSR250R SE: Low Miles, Titled, and Great Price

The owner of this 1990 Honda MC21 NSR250R SE on eBayMotors is listing a buy-it-now of only $6500! Does aftermarket bodywork affect the price or are these just not as valuable as I’d think?

quote from seller’s eBay ad:

Clean and ready to ride. This bike needs nothing, runs great. Has new Tyga body, Michelin power sports, GP pipes and silencers, steering stabilizer, all stock otherwise, SE suspension (adjustable) and R motor (wet clutch). Bike came from Thailand from Tyga several years back ( have papers from previous owner). Have Ma. titled in hand, which is hard to get and makes registering for you much easier

I’ve seen Tyga products listed on other ads, but I can’t same I’m totally familiar with them. So I took a look at the Tyga-performance.com website and it states the follow:

Tyga Performance specialises in providing support for non mainstream sports and racing motorcycles, as well as an increasing range of carbon fiber products for modern sportsbikes.

If you haven’t clicked the link yet, you should as the gallery and projects sections are loaded with pure 2-stroke porn! Some seriously nice looking conversions!

I like this example a lot, especially since I believe $6500 sounds pretty fair. What is your experience with this bodywork and what do you think of the price?

1994 Honda RVF400 For Sale in San Fran

Back on the market, here’s a great looking 1994 Honda RVF400 For Sale on the Bay Area Riders Forum:

quote from seller’s listing on the BARF forum:

1994 Honda RVF400 NC35 $7.4k

CA titled w/ current registrations. The bike has correct digit VIN# and is titled as a Honda RVF400.
Not in hurry to sell Just no time to ride and hate to see it just sitting down. These bikes are getting harder to find. Not the fastest bike out there, but a lot of fun to ride. The bike is in perfect running conditions.

4.7K miles
Two Brothers exhaust
CRG levers
EK 520 chain and sprocket (stock gearing)
NHK Steering Dampner
Front SS brake lines
Rear set adjusted plates
8-12mm Rear Height adjused plates
R&G non-drill Frame sliders
2 sets of complete bodywork w/ headlights, turn singals and gas tank
(1 original RR scheme. OE bodywork condition 9)
(1 rattle can “castrol” paint scheme. OE bodywork condition 7.)

1x left rashed mid
1x left rashed lower
also have other little stock parts (ie: Passenger seat, levers and etc)

Pitbull TT Front stand
Pitbull Rearstand
workshop manual

I loved this bike the first time I saw it on my old blog. But with the addition of the spare bodywork and additional detail, it’s looking just as tasty at $7400 with only 4700 miles!

Suzuki GSX-R Blowout Post: 5 Classic Gixxer’s on eBay Right Now!

Apparently these aren’t quite as hard to find as I thought! Here are 5 great looking classic GSX-R sportbikes for sale right now on eBay:


1986 Suzkuki GSX-R 750
– This one only has 17k miles and wears the original body work that is in shockingly good condition considering this bike is 22 years old! Has a buy-it-now for $5200.


1990 Suzuki GSXR750
– Nice upgrades on this one include: Later forks, Marchesini rims, Cosworth pistons, Yoshimira exhaust and cams, Keihin carbs, and more. This sucker is loaded and the auction is about to end at just under $3k reserve not met. What a shame, although I’d be secretly thrilled if it were my bike and it hadn’t sold!!


And three more GSX-R 1100 models: an 86, 87, and 89!

Have experience with an old GSX-R like one of these? Leave a comment and tell us about it!

Sharp Looking 1989 Yamaha FZR400 For Sale

I love this color scheme! The white with red graphics are so classic looking. Check out this 1989 Yamaha FZR400 For Sale on eBay.

quote from seller’s eBay listing:

This is a super clean 1989 Yamaha FZR400 up for auction. Runs as great as it looks, too! A true screamer. The only non-stock part to the bike is the Vance & Hines exhaust system. This bike has been well loved and taken care of by its owner for many years. As such, it has been ridden. The clock shows just in excess of 27,000 miles. Still, the engine’s got great compression and runs just as strong as the day it was brought home. CLEAR TITLE, of course.

Less than a day to go on this one, but it’s already met reserve at just over $2300. Someone is going to score a great track bike or weekend playtoy! The owner is almost apologetic about the condition in referring to the bikes age, but the pictures sure do tell another story — it looks great to me!

1988 Suzuki GSX-R 1100: Clean and Recently Rebuilt Motor

I know that by definition the GSX-R isn’t rare considering how many were produced, but I would say they are close knowing how hard it would be to find a survivor like this one. Take a look at this 1988 GSX-R 1100 for sale in Chicago on Craigslist:

quote from seller’s Craigslist ad:

THIS IS A 1988 GSXR 1100 IN EXCELLENT CONDITION. IT HAS AN PROFESSIONALLY 1109 BIG BORE KIT INSTALLED IT HAS 2200 MILES ON IT.THIS IS AN EXTREMELY FAST BIKE. THERE IS 38mm FLAT SLIDES ,BIG BORE KIT, FALICON RODS AND HEAD WORK IN THE MOTOR. AND THERE ARE ALOT OF GREAT FEATURES SUCH AS IT HAS 8900 MILES ON THE BODY AND THIS IS A REALLY CLEAN BIKE.

Love the colors, original plastics, dual lamps and recently built motor. But that $3500 asking absolutely rocks!

1993 Suzuki RGV250 For Sale with Title

Another great looking two stroke sportbike for sale. It seems like that time of year and all the great looking bikes are coming out for sale at the end of the season. Check out this 1993 Suzuki RGV250 For Sale on eBay:

quote from seller’s eBay listing:

Up for auction is my RGV250 with a street legal Florida title in my name.This is a VJ22A model. Bike is totally stock and original and was imported from Europe a couple of years ago by myself.

It has approx. 9500 miles and everything works as it should. If you know about these bikes you now how rare they are especially with a street legal title.

Bike is in very good condition for the year. It has a few blemishes on it but would stand up against any bike of the same year.

Not as flashy as some of the 2-strokers I’ve posted, but it’s got a big plus going for it: It’s titled! So if you want a bike you can ride to the local gathering and wow everyone with something they probably haven’t seen on the road before, this could be your bike.
