Hive Mentality – 1984 Yamaha RZ350

With spring in full swing and summer right around the corner RZ350s are popping up like, well, weeds. Scare in quality and quantity, 2022 has brought out a spate of strong contenders; bikes that present as well as any we have seen. So too is today’s find, a 1984 bumble bee 350 out of Montana that looks fantastic.

1984 Yamaha RZ350 for sale on eBay

Needing no introduction – but getting one anyway – the RZ350 was the last gasp of two-stroke street bike goodness in the early 1980s. Festooned with YVPS, oil injection, catalytic converters and EVAP canisters, the RZ was as close as EPA legal as could be with 1984 technology. Significantly choked by the emissions equipment (which was also very, very heavy), most RZs enjoyed a life on steroids – dropping the cats for a pair of expansion chambers, new fatter jets and improved upstream airflow. The RZ350 was an over achiever, running with the 550cc middleweights of the day, and were popular club racers to boot. Today, these are hard to find in many parts of the country, and harder still to find in original – or close to original – condition.

From the seller:
I am slimming down my collection, so its time for this time capsule to go. I purchased this 1984 RZ350 from the original owner in 2010. Its been in my garage ever since, in dry Montana, so there is very little corrosion. It has 3,714 original miles. I will also include the original exhaust pipes (photos coming soon). Overall, the bike is in very, very good condition for its age. Its not pristine, but very nice! The tires are old, so they are due for replacement and the brakes could probably be bled. There are a couple stickers on one of the fork tubes that can be removed.

More from the seller:
The original owner installed Spec II exhaust pipes. The airbox and intake are stock. It has steel braided brake lines on the front, and a Telefix fork brace.

There is no evidence of the bike ever being down. The seat is perfect. The gas tank has no dents and is very near perfect. It starts from cold on the first kick and idles perfectly.

I have a clean and clear Montana title.

The seller has also shared a cold start video on this bike:

RZs are worth real money these days. You can forget when you could pick up a beater for a grand or less; there is no value in lamenting the great one you sold for $2k. This is the ups and downs of the market, and while the RZ has had its unfair share of downs, it is currently on a credible upswing. The bidding on this very clean bike with period correct aftermarket add-ons (with original pipes available!) is well over $10k with a lot of interest. The reserve is still in place, so there is likely a lot more to play for. Only 3,700 miles on this time capsule, meaning that the winning bidder will have a lightly used rider that shows as well as any we’ve seen. Check out all of the details here, and Good Luck!!

Featured Listing – One Owner 2002 Ducati 748 with 3,500 Miles!

From RSBFS reader Michael comes this gorgeous, one-owner 2002 Ducati 748. It is no secret that the early Tamburini designs have hit their collector stride in the form of the 916, and the smaller 748 is following suit. Spotless in presentation, very low miles and lavished with the kind of attention these Italian exotics crave, today’s Featured Listing is a fantastic example of a rare breed.

Featured Listing – One Owner 2002 Ducati 748!

Produced alongside the 916, the 748 shares many of the same components, measurements and benefits. The bore and stroke were reduced to reach the 748cc capacity, and the shorter stroke of the 748 enables a quicker rev up the RPM range and a higher overall RPM when compared to the 916. Another similarity: the 748 was built to win races, and enjoyed its own homologation status. There were many variations of the 748 produced, including the two seat biposto as well as a single seat version. There were also SP, SPS and R variants across the years, but all were based on the same solid foundation of the trellis frame, single arm rear suspension, and nearly 100 HP desmoquattro L-twin. The last year for the 748 party was 2002, with the Terblanche-designed 749 taking the stage – however the preferred design of the 748 allowed it to share showroom space in 2003 until all the old stock was sold.

From the seller:
2002 Ducati 748
I am the original owner, and this is probably the most pristine example of a 748 you will ever find. If you desire a 748, look no further, this one is flawless.

Just 3,500 original miles. That’s only 175 miles per year based on a 20-year-old bike. Always garaged, covered, and meticulously maintained. Cam belts were last changed at 3,195 miles. Engine always run with Motul 300V Synthetic from new, and brake fluids were flushed at 3,064 miles with Motul DOT 5.1.

Ready to ride, this bike needs absolutely nothing.

As a one owner bike with meticulous maintenance highlighted by the seller, this 3,500 mile example is about the best we have seen on these pages. Check out the pictures closely – this bike is clean, clean, clean. That is the kind of clean that tells you it was taken care of, and cared for well. And while it is not fully stock, the upgrades have been carefully selected and integrated to improve the overall experience. This looks to be a bike done right, looks fantastic, and probably sounds even better through those under seat Arrow cans.

Tamburini Ducatis are THE thing to have right now. And this 748 shows you why – just look at it! And whether parked in your garage or man cave to be admired by few, parked at your local bike night to be admired by all, or hammering its way to redline on your favorite road, the 748 is a platform that makes sitting still look fast, and makes fast feel even better. Viva Italia indeed! Presented as it should be, correctly priced, and with only one owner under its belt, this 2002 Ducati 748 is ready for a new home. Interested individuals should drop Michael a note before it’s gone! Good Luck!!

The Same, But Different: 1984 Yamaha RZ350

In an earlier post, RSBFS Staff Writer Donn notes: Hardly a week goes by that a new RZ350 doesn’t pop up these days! I would like to take this opportunity to upgrade that statement considerably. Because today we have a double RZ350 Friday (take two – they’re small)! Forget Friday the 13th. This is Friday the RZ350th!

1984 Yamaha RZ350 for sale on eBay

This particular RZ shows very differently than the 1985 model posted by Donn HERE. This RZ seems to have a bit less info, and a potentially greater number of unknowns. It is clear that it has experienced some modifications along the line, from Airtech bodywork to updated expansion chambers, bar end mirrors, a complete replacement top end (with YPVS delete), and what appears to be some minor rash on the right-hand side case. But it is a RZ after all – and remains very popular with readers and riders alike. There are pristine, museum-style offerings that go for big, big bucks, ridden and hot rodded bikes that go for elevated prices, and then there are the bottom feeder bikes that have been used up, abused often and offered at a ridiculous price. This particular example feels more like the middle tier – modded and used, but presentable – and is pretty close in pricing to the 1985 example posted by Donn earlier today.

From the seller:
This 1984 Yamaha RZ350 is an original. The owner has had it for 5+ years. The vehicle runs great and is mainly used for weekend rides.

Bike has had a small restoration. Frame and swing arm have been powder coated. All new seals in components forks, front brakes, front master cylinder, etc. Has Airtech full fairing kit. Does not have YPVS anymore currently has a banshee top end. I do not have any of the original parts. Thanks for looking.

The seller has included the following walk around video of this particular bike. I am not exactly sure why one of the foot pegs is zip tied up out of the way, but otherwise the video shows a clean – but modified – RZ350:

Regardless of condition, RZ350s are hot property. That value is increased as the weather turns to a point where riding is possible around the country, and we are all itching to grab our leathers and hoon. And while we always recommend collectors purchase the best example they can find/afford, the truth of the matter is the RZ will always be in demand; even questionable bikes are fetching absurd prices. We do not see that changing at all in the future, except the prices are likely to be even higher. These are fun machines that really wail, they strike a pose very well in parking lots for bike night or cars and coffee, and are reasonably reliable given the volatile nature of two strokes. You can check this one out here as a compare and contrast – this is a great time to be in the RZ market!!! Good Luck!

MV Agusta May 5, 2022 posted by

Blue & Silver Stunner: 2005 MV Agusta F4 with only 750 miles!

The reintroduction of the MV Agusta brand cemented Massimo Tamburini’s legend as a designer. From the 916 through the 996 & 998 which followed, Tamburini’s rolling artwork was consistently hailed as “most beautiful.” When the design for the new MV Agusta F4 was considered, the Cagiva Design Center was involved, and produced a shape along the same lines of the 916, but substantially more grown up. The F4 itself has spawned many different models – from 750 to 1000cc capacities, from the rare Ago to numerous Limited Edition models, and several different color schemes. And while not the traditional Red / Silver that one often attributes to MV Agusta, today’s 2005 F4 is a 1000cc model and wears the rare Silver / Blue paint scheme. It also has only 750 miles.

2005 MV Agusta F4 for sale on eBay

From the seller:
2005 MV Agusta F4.
Immaculate
Bike was displayed indoors
Completely prepped for use

The photos do not lie on this one. The bike looks absolutely gorgeous, and something far more exotic than the already exotic Italian beauty that it is. We do not see many in this color combo. The low, low miles are a definite plus here, especially since the owner had the bike properly recommissioned by a reputable shop. Just check out the $2,300 prep done to this machine! The paintwork looks great, and thanks to the climate controlled parking there is no corrosion or fading to speak of. If you are in the market for a MV Agusta – for looks or for the Ferrari F1 engineered assistance on the 166 HP powerplant and 185 mph top speed – this is what you need to be looking for. Low miles, high degree of attention and care, and totally unmolested and stock in appearance. No takers yet at the $8,999 opening ask. Check out all of the details here, and Good Luck!!

Featured Listing – 2013 KTM RC8R

5.18.2022: This bike has sold. Congratulations to buyer and seller! -dc

The KTM RC8R is the un-Superbike. It does not have the mass-market appeal of the Japanese WSBK competitors, nor does it have a long history of sexy design like the Italian steeds. What it offers instead is a no-holds-barred design philosophy that couples a ferocious powerplant with a stiff and stable chassis, premium components that enabled it to be competitive in WSBK racing, and the rarity of being something different. Exclusivity was guaranteed when KTM pulled the plug on their big bore, street going sport bikes in 2015, leaving the capable RC8 line-up in the hands of fans and those seeking something different on the used bike market. Today, these are edging their way into collector status for what they represent.

Featured Listing – 2013 KTM RC8R!

At the heart of the rare beast is an 1190cc v-twin splayed a unique 75 degrees, and spitting out 175 horsepower. All those mad, fuel injected ponies are unleashed through a tight, 6-speed gearbox with slipper clutch arrangement. That slipper clutch – along with the excellent chassis and WP suspension components, Brembo radial mount brakes, and sticky rubber – are all the tools a rider has in the tool kit to keep the shiny bits, well, shiny. You see, the RC8R is really the last manly Superbike, where traction control, throttle mapping and anti-wheelie systems are the exclusive property of the rider’s right wrist. The RC8R is a bike without techno-nannies. There is no app to program it, there are no confusing menus to scroll through. Skill and bravery are rewarded with unfettered speed.

From the seller:
2013 KTM RC8R
Purchased the bike in January 2021.

Modifications:
Akrapovic Evo1 full titanium system
Dymag UP7X forged wheels installed 2,000 miles ago. Tires are Bridgestone RS11.
Galfer front wave rotors and 1375HH ceramic pads
R&G license plate holder/tail tidy with LED license plate frame and Rizoma LED turn signals
CRG levers
Carbon fiber tank protectors (OEM included as well)
Carbon fiber chain guard

More from the seller:
Bike runs perfectly. No mechanical issues. Maintenance history included in images.
California Reg paid to March 2023, clean title in my name.

Cosmetic issues:
1) some small rock chips on underside of tail section and front fairing
2) nickel-sized mark on left front fairing (in pics, near the “R”)
3) pin-head sized chip in tank from interference with steering damper
4) some scratches in tank from jacket zipper
5) The left fairing is wrapped in gloss black vinyl just below the “R” logo and I assume it’s covering something up but I have no idea what and don’t want to remove it. I actually owned the bike for several months before I noticed it.

Extras included:
Removed stock exhaust, CJ Desigs SAS plates, original owners manual and copy of workshop manual, ONE key.

Located in San Rafael, CA. 94901

Today’s awesome looking 2013 KTM RC8R 1190 comes from RSBFS reader John. The bike sports some very desirable performance and cosmetic upgrades applied to a very clean example. Maintenance has been performed as annotated in the list found in the gallery below, and John has been very open about the condition of the bike – so no surprises. In a world that is going down the technology rabbit hole with ever greater velocity, it is safe to say that we will not see another analog Superbike like this again. KTM created a fantastic platform with the RC8R, and this is destined to be one of the “not to be missed” collectors in this segment in future years. Meanwhile, nothing will put a bigger smile on your face than listing to the big twin hammer its way up through the gears.. Good Luck!!

Quattordici – 1990 Ducati 851 Strada

Ducati 851 for sale

Update 4.27.2022: We last saw this 851 in May of last year and now it’s back on eBay with fresh pictures as well. Current bid is $8,000 and the reserve is met. 4 days remain on the auction. Links updated. -dc

What a wild spring time we are having here at RSBFS! There appears to be a nearly inexhaustible supply of rare Ducati 851 examples in all different conditions and price points. We’ve posted so many of these lately that I’m tempted to cut and paste the historic details on the model from earlier posts, but I’ll spare you the lazy journalism. These bikes are cool enough to talk about over and over and over again. So without furthering any ado, let’s dive into this 1990 Ducati 851.

1990 Ducati 851 Strada for sale on eBay

The 851 is an iconic model simply because it began the lineage of the modern day Ducati Superbike. From the early days of the singles, through the era of the bevels, right into the Pantah era, Ducatis were defined by the 2-valve desmo actuation and for being air cooled (simple and light). The 851 threw out all off that and more by plonking a unique 4-valve desmo head (based on a 1970s University thesis, and with some help from Cosworth) atop a new barrel structure that was liquid cooled, allowing for tighter tolerances and far more heat dissipation. These two elements were maximized via the use of additional new technology – fuel injection. The result was 105 HP (power increased over the years) at higher RPMs than previous models, and with a willing chassis and good aero the 851 was born. And with it, the ground work for more than a decade of dominance in WSBK.

Beautiful Ducati 851

Barely ridden since I got it a few years ago.
Idled often and kept on battery tender.
New battery
Fresh gas
Sorry no service history other than the gentleman I bought it from few years ago had his mechanic go through it thoroughly.
Most ducati folks like to do their own maintenance as it’s fairly easy so you’d probably want to do fluids, look at belts, tires, chain.
Fires right up, idles great, drives, shifts, brakes, lights work… all good! Just went for a quick ride, love this bike but downsizing and this one needs a new home with someone to ride it more!

Only thing I notice is the rear brake light does not brighten when depressing the rear brake pedal. Probably an easy fix. The front brake lever does activate the brake light.

No mirrors on this bike but I may have an extra set from a 900ss I have. Negotiable on including these.
Bike has usual nicks and scratches, but no dents or dings on tank. Note the bottom section of one fairing has a spot that is chipped/scratched. Zoom in on the pic. Not noticeable when fairing is on bike. Bike could use a good cleaning. I’ve always kept indoors.

Please look at pics and examine closely. I’m happy to chat or take closer up pics of anything.

Today’s model is the Strada – meaning street. This is the lowest spec of the 851 class, not to damn it with faint praise. It is simply the most comment variant, which includes a passenger pillion and associated hardware. In fact, all the 851 examples posted on RSBFS in the last month have been the Strada edition. This particular bike has higher mileage than its posted peers (21,000+ claimed), and like most 30 year old motorcycles it has experienced some mods and mishaps. On the mods front I spy a tinted windscreen and non-factory handgrips. More concerning is the lack of mirrors (and why). The rest of the bike looks presentable and the plastics appear to be in good shape, although there is some weathering of the black parts such as the forks, top clamp, and engine cases.

The seller notes that this bike has not been ridden much as of late, and there is a lack of service records. The oil in the sight glass does appear dark and in need of a change, but color is rarely an accurate indicator. Belts should be done as much as for time as miles, and would be high on my list of to-dos. While this is a doable chore for the home mechanic, it is a bit more involved than on your average 2-valve Ducati thanks to the extra systems in the way. Valve adjustments can also be done by the home mechanic, but you will need tools specific for retrieving and measuring the shims, as well as a way to obtain the necessary-sized shims to complete the job. This one is being offered as a Buy It Now of $12,500, with the seller open to offers. That is a strong price considering some of the others that we have seen recently, but the good news is that the healthy supply allows for some shopping around. Check out all of the details here, and Good Luck!!

The Long & Short of It: 2000 Ducati 996 Monoposto

The Ducati 996 was the follow-on act to the stunning 916. Instead of a sophomore slump so often seen after a runaway hit, the 996 was a tasteful evolution – both more elegant and more ferocious than the original. The bump in displacement helped the 996 make better headway in WSBK, with Troy Bayliss winning yet another Ducati championship. At the dealership, the 996 was a flagship bike drawing in the crowds – and their wallets. The 916 might have been a hard act to follow, but the 996 was right on target.

2000 Ducati 996 Monoposto for sale on eBay

From the seller:
Model Year 2000 Ducati 996 Monoposto. Well cared for. Red with only 26,600 miles. Pirelli Diablo Rosso II front 120/70 ZR17 and 180/55 ZR17 rear tires at 24,943 miles. Ohlins fully adjustable rear shock and Ohlins adjustable steering damper. Arrow carbon fiber mufflers with Ducati Performance Eprom. 520 chain & sprockets, 14/39 ratio with AFAM quick change rear sprocket carrier. New cam belts at 24,376 miles. Electraeon start in neutral with sidestand down modification. Shorai lithium battery. BMC in-airbox air filters.

Original owner’s manual, shop manual, Ducati certification of authenticity, Pit Bull rear stand, and spare key come with the bike.

More from the seller:
Bike is lowered approximately 24 mm front and rear due to my short (28”) inseam. Rear strut length can be adjusted to restore stock ride height. Adjustable side stand to accommodate lowered ride height. Rear adjuster strut and adjustable side stand by Soupy’s Performance. Stock rear strut and side stand come with the bike.

Great iconic bike in remarkable condition.

This beautiful example of the 996 has some miles under the oil pan (26k+), and has seen some slight modifications. I spy with my little eye a smoked windscreen, Arrow carbon exhaust, vented clutch cover, and Ducati performance Eprom. Some of the other mods are practical for those shorter of stature. The 916/996/998 model series can be a bit taller than some riders expect. That leads to some tippy-toe moments in parking lots and at stop lights. The seller has made some non-destructive mods to help alleviate the seat height issue through a shorter rear strut rod – which also necessitated a shortened side stand. Both stock units are included in the sale to bring that aspect of the bike back to showroom fresh.

With Ducati 916s reaching skyward in terms of value, the obvious next candidate for potential investing is the 996. These are still relatively undervalued for what they offer, and draped in the super-sexy Massimo Tamburini-designed bodywork there is no other silhouette like it (except maybe for the 916 and 998). Time is running down on this auction, and with the latest bid at a low $5,480 USD, you can be sure this will see some more action before auction close. Which is your favorite of the 916/996/998 trifecta? Be sure and let us know. Check out all of the details here, and Good Luck!!

Featured Listing – 1993 Yamaha GTS

Long time RSBFS reader Mike has rolled out a very interesting bike for today’s Featured Listing. Designed by Yamaha with considerable help from the Parker-RADD concept, the GTS was one of several attempts to improve upon motorcycle front suspension systems – a noble endeavor undertaken by the likes of Ner-A-Car (way back in 1918!), the aforementioned James Parker, multiple Bimota Tesi models throughout the 1980s and 1990s, Honda powered ELF racers, and even one-off builders such as Spanish legend Tony Foale and Dutch designer Nico Bakker. What they all hoped to achieve was to separate normal suspension movement from the forces of braking and weight transfer. The reality is that each of the innovative concepts had some downsides, and the telescopic fork remains the defacto front suspension design to this day.

Featured Listing: 1993 Yamaha GTS

The Yamaha GTS was a bit of an oddity; not only did it represent the only full-blown Big Four manufacturer departing from the telescopic fork, it wasn’t really a focused sport bike. For starters, this is a big motorcycle – figure over 600 pounds when full of water, oil and fuel. The powerplant is the venerable FZR1000 unit, which makes for outstanding sport-touring potential along with legendary reliability. Under way, the rider cannot even tell this bike doesn’t have forks, although braking stability is above par. Sadly, after only 2 short years Yamaha pulled the plug on the experiment. The GTS was just not what buyers wanted, regardless of how cool they were. What started as a deviation from the FJ1100 and FJ1200 turned into but a minor break; Yamaha reverted back to the established model with the introduction of the FJR1300. The RADD Parker dream in production was over. Today’s seller has a LOT to say about this fantastic example, and we’ll let him take it away from here:

Today’s Featured Listing represents a well loved and well sorted example of a very rare breed. It also represents a bit of a bargain in the current world of crazy collector bike pricing, and includes a ton of spares and rare items. The Yamaha GTS remains alone as the only mass-produced example of an alternative front suspension design marketed by a major manufacturer. This is undeniably rare, and a sort of unicorn in its own right, even in the public never really warmed to the idea. If you are like minded and in the market for something unique yet usable, give Mike a shout. The bike is located in the Province of Alberta in Canada, with an asking price of just $7,000 USD. Thanks for supporting the site, Mike!
