1995 Triumph Speed Triple with only 1,948 miles For Sale!

1995 Triumph Speed Triple with only 1,948 miles For Sale!

Make: Triumph
Model: Speed Triple
Mileage: 1,948
BIN Price: $5,600
Location: Weston, Connecticut

Along about the time Motley Crue’s John Corabi was belting out Hooligan’s Holiday Triumph’s John Bloor was getting busy rebuilding their brand with their own Hooligan- the 855cc Speed Triple. Much like Corabi and The Crue, Bloor’s Hooligan Speed Triple looked the part, but didn’t really have it where it counted. It’s well documented that these early Speed Triples are top heavy, down on power, ill handling and have mushy brakes, but these checked all of the boxes for the nostalgic Triumph fans. Black, British and dare I say quirky? You see, if folks didn’t like old things there would be no Rare Sport Bikes For Sale. People have fond memories of days gone by and still lust after the one that got away (No, I’m not talking about that hot thing from high school).
Today’s 200hp, fire breathing motorcycles are leaps and bounds better than my beloved ZX-7R’s with their torture rack riding position and quirky flat slide carbs, but I/we still love and desire them. Right?

From the seller
Extraordinary rare example of the 1995 Triumph Speed Triple with low mileage <2000 miles a 2rd owner well maintained, great running bike. High performance carburetors re: flat slide Keihin smooth bore Venturis jetted and matched to the carbon fiber mufflers. This bike is a hotrod when compared to its modern day incarnation and sounds really good when twisting it open and bracing against the acceleration. New tires (<200 miles). Fresh brake fluids, oil, filter, spark plugs. Battery tender. Only racing fuel used. Toolkit under seat. The move to high performance carburetors deleted the choke and changed the direction of the fuel selector. A couple pulls of the throttle primes and a couple press of the starter fires her up. I purchased this bike ~2 years ago and had the mechanic, who had maintained this bike as part of the prior owner's collection, go over the bike, replace the battery, fluids and throw on new tires. I added a battery tender, replaced a grommet where the seat frame meets the rear body and performed seasonal service (all genuine Triumph parts). It sits up on a Abba motorcycle stand, attached to a battery tender when not out on the road.


Very, very nice and according to the seller- she’s ready to Rock-n-Roll!

Is a 1995 Speed Triple your one that got away? If so, this one might be for you!

Make the jump here for a walk down memory lane!

Cheers!

1989 Honda NT650 Hawk GT For Sale on eBay!

1989 Honda NT650 Hawk GT For Sale on eBay!

Location: Plainfield, Illinois
Make: Honda
Model: Hawk NT650
Mileage: 5,285
Price: $6,000 B.I.N.

From the seller:
1989 Honda Hawk GT 650
1 owner
In storage since 1995 brought out in 2021
Runs and drives
Clean body not one ounce of rust

Pretty darned spiffy- don’t you agree?

Honda Hawk’s are always a crowd pleaser and this one shouldn’t disappoint the fan boys and fan girls. Even though the seller is vague on details, the less than adequate photos can tell us a little bit more. The seller states it was in storage for roughly 25 years (ouch!), but was recently (assumed) brought back to life for the “headlight on” photo op.

Since the seller didn’t say- all potential buyers must assume a whole lot of rubber bits will need replaced like tires, radiator hoses and fork seals just to name a few, as well as a few metal bits such as a chain, perhaps some cables and bearings? Of course we’d like to see the inside of the fuel tank and perhaps a little more info on how it was stored because you know . . . Lacquer and all that yucky stuff.

However, the seller does state “Not one ounce of rust!” and the photos (when zoomed in) support that comment. You *may have to spend a few pennies, some time and a few beers bringing it up to road worthiness, but it appears you would have an amazing base to start with. The frame is oxidation free, the paint still shines and I don’t see any body damage.

While standing around the corporate offices yesterday one of our more distinguished employees made the comment “Better pictures would be worth one thousand more on the B.I.N. price!”

What do you all think?
-Buy it and ride it?
-Buy it and sit on it while making vroom, vroom noises?
-Buy it, fix it and sell it?

Where ever your thoughts land you can Make the jump here-

Cheers,

1985 Yamaha RZ350 with only 10 miles For Sale!

1985 Yamaha RZ350 For Sale on eBay!

Make: Yamaha
Year: 1985
Model: RZ350
Location: Byron, California
Mileage: 10. Ten. X. Diez.
Price: $30,000 BIN with a current bid of $12,200


 

From the seller:
10 mile original bike still on mso. This is a one of a kind bike. The only bike better would still be in the crate. This bike has been sitting inside a house for over 35 years.

Alright, people. Here’s your chance to buy a brand new, 10 original mile, 1985 1/2 RZ-350, California model.

Bike has never been registered, still on the MSO from Yamaha. It comes with the original toolkit and owner’s manual, neither of which have ever been opened. The original pre-delivery checklist comes with the warranty card still attached. Brand new brochure is also included.

This bike is completely stock, not a dent or a scratch in it. The bike is dusty from sitting, but I don’t think you could find a knick or a scratch on it. It has never been dropped and it has been inside a climate-controlled environment for over 35 years. It’s like the bike just left the factory.

No modifications of any kind have been done on this bike. All nuts, bolts, and paintwork look new. No oxidation anywhere. Chain still has a little cosmoline on it. Tires are free of cracks and wear. They still have nubs. Tires are even filled with the original Japanese air. Brakes are not frozen.

This RZ-350 would be perfect for any museum. I cannot stress enough the amazing condition this bike is in. The only way you could find a cleaner one, is if you found one still in the crate.

I would be happy to take pictures of any aspect of the bike, or answer any questions you may have.

And there you have it- all original right down to the Japanese air in the original tires. Sign me up!

I’m not gonna bore you all the techy specs, years offered, rake angles, tires sizes, power outputs or fancy nicknames. You’ve read it a million times on our site, but just in case you’re bored and want a refresher you can have a look HERE

This is the real deal. A 37 year old 2 stroke, time capsule that you will probably never see again unless it comes up for sale again. I know I’m being all “mellow dramatic”, but it’s the truth. I’ll even make a prediction- As soon as this post goes live it’ll be sold within a day or two. Don’t believe me? Think it’s too much for a RZ? SHOW. ME. ANOTHER. ONE. LIKE. IT!

Click fast because this one won’t last!

Cheers!

1995 Ducati 916 with only 18 miles for sale!

Well H E L L! Take 2! It’s back for more, screaming with a vengeance and with a $60,000.00 B.I.N. price tag this time around.

1995 Ducati 916 with only 18 miles for sale!

It appears to be in the same 27 year old and untouched condition just as it was back in December. The December auction ended early and the last bid recorded was $14,000. I doubt that’s what it originally sold for, but you’re free to let the imagination run on this one.

Ciao!

Doug



Well, H E L L! I had this one almost ready to go, then our server decided it was time for an update. That little delay caused me to delay posting it this morning only to return to finish the post and find out the auction was pulled. I think it’s still worth a post so, here it is-


18 mile 1995 Ducati 916 For Sale on eBay

Well, well- what do we have here? Do you think Massimo would be proud to see this or shake his head in disgust? I’m going with the later because I know he painstakingly engineered the 916 to Carl Fogarty’s standards and he rode and beat on his 916 like it owed him money. Okay, cool your batteries, we all know that Massimo didn’t design it for Foggy- that was just some dumb stuff I made up. But, I know we all have some fond memories of Foggy on a 95′ 916. Right?

From the seller
Ducati 916 with 18 original miles, The exterior paint, plastics, seat, exhaust, plastics are perfect (headlights are foggy but clean up). This bike needs a few hours of detailing and possibly replacement of a few small parts to be museum quality. This bike was placed into storage in a barn that was not properly conditioned and humidity affected some of the metal parts. 4 of the dzuz fasteners towards the bottom of the fairings have oxidation, Some of the bolts on the front rotor and the rotor itself have oxidation. The metal fittings on the front brake line also display oxidation. There is a small bubble on the clutch cover where the paint is peeling and another bubble hidden behind the back shock area that is difficult to photo. There was a very, very small spot on one of the wheels that I cannot find again but I know it’s there somewhere because I noticed when I bought the bike. All of the electronics, engine, transmission work properly and I have video of the bike running. This bike is part of my collection which I am starting to sell.


I think this image tells the story of this low mileage 918 916- It shows how it was improperly stored and it shows that it is a real deal 18 mile machine.
Like some, but not all RSBFS.com readers, I find low mileage machines, of any age, very intriguing. I think I find them intriguing because they make me wonder “why?”. In this case, I ask “Why did someone mothball a second year base model 916?”. The naysayers will scream “It’s a base model and doesn’t belong on your site!”. My threshold is simple- Can I find another one? Therefore, I clap back with a resounding “NO!”.

More from the seller
I hate buying and selling because the internet is full of idiots. I have tried to give the best possible description of the bike. Again, it is not perfect but with very minimal effort it will be.

Preach it Brother!

I intentionally sat on this one for a few days because I wanted to see how much action and price it would command. It currently sits at $14,000 with 8 bids placed and the reserve firmly in place.
What’s it going to take?

I know it’s a dead horse and I’m sure you folks are tired of reading it, but PICTURES! PICTURES! PICTURES! If the paint is perfect- show it! If the wheels are perfect- SHOW IT! I suspect this machine would attract a few more dollars with a proper detail and photos.

What do you all think? Let’s discuss it.

Ciao!

Featured Listing: 2006 Ducati PS1000LE

Update 1.6.2022: This bike has SOLD to an RSBFS reader! Congratulations to buyer and seller!

If you have a bike for sale that would benefit from this kind of exposure, contact us for a Featured Listing. -dc

Even by Ducati’s impressive standards for special editions and factory customs, the 2006 Ducati PS1000LE is a masterstroke. It is, in a way, a special edition within a special edition, as it prowled showrooms at the same time as the Ducati Sport Classic line, which kicked off a wave of retro-look machines that has yet to crest.

The PS1000LE was extra special for Duc, as it celebrated Paul Smart’s historic win at the 1972 Imola 200 aboard a 750SS. The paint scheme apes Smart’s machine, and Ducati had Pierre Terblance pen the neoclassic machine to pay exacting tribute.

The exposed trellis frame, toaster tank, bulbous rear cowl and dustbin-style bikini fairing are brilliant touches. Under all that pretty is a 992 cc L-twin that put out just south of 100 horsepower. Never designed as an out-and-out rocket, the PS is still no slouch, as the torquey mill has less than 400 pounds to shove around. It’s all kept rubberside down by adjustable Ohlins front and rear.

From the seller:

2006 Ducati PS1000LE
I have owned this rare beauty since new. The Termignoni full exhaust system sound is music and the best sounding bike in my collection. Other mods are a Ducati performance racing ECU, open clutch cover, dark shield and clear belt covers and carbon fiber hugger. Original parts will go with the bike with the exception of the original exhaust. Included are two black keys, one red key & key Code Card as well as the Ducati owner’s manual. I have every receipt since it was purchased and it has only been serviced by authorized Ducati dealers. The bike also comes with the Ducati tank cover and tank bag.
These bikes were only made one year and they were limited to 2000 units. This bike was made as a tribute to Paul Smarts win at Imola 200 in 1972 which jump started Ducatis racing successes. The popularity of the limited production bikes led to the popular Sport Classic series.
The bike is a 992cc air cooled Desmodromic 2-valve L twin with 92 HP @ 6,000 RPM and a claimed 399 pounds day with a fuel capacity of 4 gallons with a top speed of 129 MPH.
Price $18,500

These Paul Smart bikes will only go up in value, and while this one might not have the stock exhaust, it is priced to reflect that and is a beautiful example of a timeless bike.

How about this hot AF Italian smoker for your Thirsty Thursday viewing pleasure?

I’m gonna come clean on this one . . . When I first saw it I was 110% stoked and thought it might be the Holy Grail survivor of RS250’s, but then I watched this at :28 seconds in.

I’m guessing that’s not going to buff out! Looks like someone had a rough day at the track and threw it down the road. I hope the rider was okay.

But, the show must go on and like we always say “Smoke’em if ya Got’em!”

Actually, it sold for $17,976.00, but I’m not squabbling over a few Benjamin’s. I like them both, but would have liked this one more without the raspberry on the tank, but the mileage is super low, but the raspberry on the tank, but it’s really clean, but the raspberry on the tank, but it’s all original, but the raspberry on the tank, but it has (what promises to be) an extensive spares kit, but the raspberry on the tank. . .

1989 Kawasaki Ninja ZX 7 w/ only 4,973 miles! *No R required*

1989 Kawasaki ZX 7 For Sale on eBay!

Would you look at that clean and green H1 goodness! #Tasty

If you weren’t a fan of my last Homologation ZX-7R M1 post, perhaps this OG ZX-7 will tickle your green fancy pants at a clean and crisp $19,897.00 B.I.N. price 🙂

Not seeing any gooey chain lube sling-

Not seeing any significant heel marks-

Not seeing much in the way of custodian key chain marks-

Yup, it’s a clean green machine!

Back in 1989, these were pretty bad ass machines (sans the fake Hoover hoses). From the factory you could expect front and rear adjustable suspenders, massive 275mm front rotors, 105hp and 17″ wheels at both ends- sporting radial tires. I know, none of that seems impressive to modern day riders, but believe me when I tell you- All of that was cutting edge in 1989. However, the middleweight Ninja was a touch heavy at 450ish pounds.

Did I mention it has 2 round headlights and is neon green with some snazzy reflective stickers?
