Featured Listing: Low mileage 2000 Yamaha R1

As we spill countless pixels on aging, air-cooled weapons of yesteryear, bikes that ride on weird anti-dive forks and odd-size tires, it’s easy to forget that machines like the first-generation Yamaha R1 are quickly approaching classic status but can still hang with modern stuff. As traction control and other rider aids become the norm, that is less and less true, but to the average guy, the difference is still miniscule.

That’s why bikes like today’s 2000 Yamaha R1 are so appealing. For starters, it’s an example of a bike that carries the weight of every superlative and cliched modifier you can stack on it. Game changer? Yep. Fastest of its time? Yep. Racebike with taillights? Yep. In 1998 when this first R1 bowed, there simply was no equal in any dealership. More refined rides existed, but as would-be road racers soon found out, this thing would see the big end of 140 before the end of the street (if you had a straight, deserted road you might hit upper 160’s) and make long sweepers into tight esses.

This 2000 Yamaha R1 has been very well looked after, with less than 5,000 miles on the dial and just a few small blems to show for its 19 years. It has brand-new tires, and a recent carb clean, oil change and tank flush. A D&D exhaust is the only deviation from stock.

From the seller:

I am the second owner of this absolutely stunning 2000 Yamaha YZF-R1 with only 4874 miles (may go up slightly for short ride). A true game changers and a definite appreciating classic. Aside from the D&D slip on exhaust this R1 is completely stock. Brand new tires (Michelin Pilot Power). Just had a carb clean, oil/filter change and tank flush performed. The bike runs fantastic – as good as it looks. No leaks. Transmission works great as does all lights/blinkers/horn. This bike is turn key ready to ride needs nothing!

There are a few small paint imperfections that I have pointed out in pics. Nothing serious but I know how nerve wracking it can be buying a bike sight unseen. Please check the pics and video. Any questions just ask.

Location: Houston, Texas
$4750 Negotiable.

Make no mistake, at $4,750 OBO, this thing will move quickly, and it won’t be long before that price is absolutely unheard of for an unmolested early R1. Get at our boy Russ at russr33@gmail.com to make the deal.

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:

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: 1986 Kawasaki Ninja 1000R

Born to succeed the venerable Kawasaki GPz900R, the 1986 Kawasaki Ninja 1000R spent two glorious years at the top of the list of world’s fastest production bikes before giving way to the ZX-10R, whose longevity has yet to meet its bounds. But for its fleeting moment in the sun, the 1986 Kawasaki Ninja 1000R was very close to all things to all people. With anti-dive forks, a single-shock swingarm and the best part of 125 horsepower, they were truly astonishing sportbikes.

But those were the days before race replicas became everything, before comfort was seen as a detraction more than a benefit, and the bikes had plush seats, reasonable pillion perches, reasonable riding positions and stopped the wind effectively. They were just as happy to cruise the slab as they were to scare the burritos out of you on a track.

This example is as close as you’ll come to winding the clock back to 1987 or so, when lightly used Ninja 1000Rs still patrolled dealership floors. It has some light crazing on one side from being leaned against a wall, but apart from that, it’s a stellar, low-mile example of the name. The seller says the only things that have been changed from factory spec are the tires and grips. It has been ridden sparingly and stored in a heated garage since the seller bought it in 2001. The treatment has paid off, too, as every original rubber piece looks almost as good as new.

From the seller:

Up for sale is my original unmodified 1986 Kawasaki Ninja 1000r.
This bike has all original paint and mechanicals, the only items that have been changed are the tires and grips.
The 6898.4 miles are all original and the bike has never seen rain with me or the previous owner.
I’ve owned this bike since 2001 and haven’t ridden it much in those years but have kept it inside a heated garage the whole time.
This bike starts right up every summer when I take it out for a short ride and it sounds great, I’ve only used non ethanol fuel in this the entire time so there is no damage to the fuel system or carbs.
All the plastic and rubber parts are still soft and pliable as they have had no exposure to sunlight or rain, the seat is still as soft and flexible as when new.
The windshield is also original but the black accent paint on the inside edge pretty much all flaked off so it’s clear now all the way through, as you can see from the pictures there is some cracking at the screw holes but the windshield is still very clear.
The tank has a small paint chip on the left side and some paint damage on the left fairing where it appears a prior owner parked to close to a wall which you can see in the pictures, I choose to not touch up these areas as I wanted this bike to stay all original.
This would be a great addition to any motorcycle collection as it looks as good today as it did 33 years ago.

$5900.00

These truly original and truly market-changing bikes are becoming rarer and rarer, especially the beautifully kept non-restored examples. At $5,900, this bike is an easy way in to an incredible late-80s street machine.

Featured Listing: 1997 Kawasaki ZX-7RR N2

Update 9.11.2019: Neil has renewed the Featured Listing for his 97 ZX-7RR. His description has been updated and he’s also dropped the price to $16,000. Good luck to buyers and seller, and thanks for supporting the site Neil! -dc

Maybe it’s the Ninja Turtles paintjob, or the twin headlights or the gaping air scoops that flank the headlights, but the 1997 Kawasaki ZX-7RR oozes with purpose. After all, nothing about a lime green-and purple single-seater sportbike says “ride me to work.” These are the colors of losing your chicken strips up the inside of a dentist on a Ducati. This is the livery of a long day in the general district courthouse followed by indefinite license suspension.

The 1997 Kawasaki ZX-7RR was built to homologate the bikes Rob Muzzy was tuning to within an inch of their lives for AMA Superbike and Formula USA competition. Aside from the fairly obvious single-seat tail section and deleted passenger pegs, the bikes had beefier Nissin brakes, fully-adjustable suspension and 41mm flatslide carbs.

With Doug Chandler and Scott Russell on board, the ZX-7RR’s predecessor took four AMA Superbike titles in the 1990s, as well as a brace of Daytona 200s courtesy of Russell. Eric Bostrom also rode a ZX-7RR in the latter half of the ‘90s.

Thanks to the big flat slides, a tall first gear, the ZX-7RRs made pretty miserable street bikes, which led to most of them being stripped of their street equipment and thrown around amateur road racing series and track days with abandon. To find one as blemish free and low mileage as this one is a real rarity.

This 1997 Kawasaki ZX-7RR N2 is completely stock except for an air-valve mod, and has done less than 6,000 miles. It resides in Canada, but the seller says he has explored importing it to the U.S. and does not anticipate any serious issues.

From the seller:

I have for sale a 1997 Kawasaki ZX7RR in very good or even excellent condition. This fine example has been ridden only 9500km (5900mi) by its original owner. The seat cowl, tank, upper cowl and fender are scratch and dent free. There are a few paint chips and a small rub mark on the muffler that I have tried my best to point out in the pictures. I can provide more pictures if desired.
The bike is stock with the exception of the seat pad which I had re-upholstered.

I believe I am the third owner and I have had it in my collection for 6 years. Although not ridden during that time, I periodically started and ran the bike and kept fresh fuel in it. I did recently ride it to the local garage for a safety inspection and everything performed as a like new bike should.

I live an hour and a half east of Toronto, Ontario and would consider delivering the bike to the New York City area or Buffalo NY. This model may be imported into the USA (VSP312) via an importer to whom I would supply the paper work including the ‘Recall letter’. i have installed a MPH speedometer face as required for US importation.

I am asking $16,000 for this clean example of a ZX7RR. Please call Neil at (705) 924-9147 or email n_macmillan@hotmail.com

At $18,500 $16,000 U.S., the bike is priced as a rare collector bike, and a low-production piece of AMA history. Considering that similar homologation mounts from Honda and Yamaha of this vintage are going for more than double that, this Kawi represents something of a bargain.

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: 1986 Honda VFR750F

Update 8.31.2019: This bike has SOLD to an RSBFS reader! Congratulations to buyer and seller! -dc

Even legends have parents. They don’t often get lauded for their offspring’s exploits, but their influence is indelible, and without their genes, what would our heroes be? The 1986 Honda VFR750F is a minor legend in its own right, but its offspring — the Honda RC30 and RC45, are the beasts everyone remembers. But in 1986, Honda was hungry to catapult itself past the other Japanese marques in the sportbike arms race, and to cure its new V4s reputation for weak valve trains.

The VFR750F delivered. Under Fred Merkel, Wayne Rainey and Bubba Shobert, the bikes cleaned up in AMA. And under a crew from Cycle World that included Nick Ienatsch and a motley crew of racers and journalists, blew the ’86 Suzuki GSXR750’s 24-hour speed record out of the water by nearly 20 mph. Follow the link to that story at the end of this writeup. You won’t regret it. The red-white-and-blue beasts achieved the feat thanks to an improved 105-horsepower 750cc V4 that represented a 20-horsepower gain over the Magnas and fixed reliability questions. The bikes were also something like 40 pounds lighter than the previous model.

Coupled with a roadrace-worthy suspension and wide, sticky tires, the VFR had the goods to take it to Yamaha and Suzuki.

This 1986 Honda VFR750F is in impeccable, low-mile shape, with a long list of recent mods and maintenance to make it even tastier. It sports a Yoshimura exhaust and an RC30-style front fender, among other improvements. Seller Joe spent a long time on his description, so we’ll let him take it away:

1986 Honda VFR750F

Honda collector for over 30 years. My recent focus has been V4 bikes of the 80s/90s, including both RC30/RC45. This is my second 1986 VFR750F, which I purchased in 2016. I bought this bike because of its low mileage and overall survivor condition. Plus, I really wanted one with a pipe. The videos don’t do the sound of this Yosh pipe justice. The bike has 11,357 miles. As you can see from the title, I’ve put less than 100 miles on the bike while freshening up a few things. I have over 20 bikes and like to work on them, but I don’t ride them enough, so it’s time for someone else to enjoy it.Upgrades – all done within the last 18 months: New Honda fuel pump (specific to this bike and $200 for part alone); New fuel filter; New choke cable; New Yuasa AGM battery; New Honda grips; New Metzeler rear tire (Metzeler front matches but older – see code); New DID x-ring chain with rivet; re-zinc’d rear sprocket; Cut down front fender to match race bikes/RC30, and painted to match (includes uncut stock front fender); Valve adjustment and carbs disassembled and ultrasonic cleaned and sync’d (see video – work done by Joe Nelson of VFR Dreams); Fresh oil and filter; New brake fluid front and rear; New clutch master fluid; Known blemishes: 20-25 tank “pimples”appeared over this last winter. Odd, because always stored in a heated garage. Scrapes on left rear cowl/tail. A few very small scratches on windscreen. Hairline crack on LH fairing (3/4”). Normal cracking on mirror arm. Clear title in my name. Includes factory shop manual. I do not have factory owners manual. 2 keys, including original stamped key and a Honda duplicate. Multiple videos show carb sync, cold start, fast idle, fast idle warm up with two other of my bikes. Asking $4000.

VFR750F 24-hour world record recap: https://www.motorcyclistonline.com/hondas-1986-vfr750f-interceptor/

While later sport-touring RC36 VFRs don’t command the same coin (somehow) as the earlier bikes, VFRs are still a bargain compared to a slab-side Gixxer in similar shape. For such a jewel of a machine in such gorgeous condition, the $4,000 asking price is almost a no-brainer.

Featured Listing: 1971 Norton Dunstall 810 Sleeper

By the early 1970s, if you were a roadracer or a cafe rat with a few extra shillings and a penchant for Nortons, tuner Paul Dunstall’s name was never far from your mind. A retired racer, Dunstall started knocking out performance exhausts for Nortons in his family’s scooter shop, before buying a raft of leftover Norton racing parts and building spec engines for customers. His tweaks were the stuff of legend by the end of the 1960s, and in 1971, Norton commissioned him to build a few factory-tuned bikes around the Commando platform.

The result was the 125-mph, 70-horsepower 1971 Norton Dunstall 810 Sleeper, a parallel twin monster sporting a tiny fiberglass fuel tank, bored out jugs and bigger cams and carburetors than the stock bike. CycleWorld hustled their tester to the magazine’s first-ever sub-12-second quarter mile. On the street, the bike would knock down the 0-60 run in less than five seconds. Heady stuff at a time when motorcycles were either Dennis Hopper’s Harley Davidson or Brian Wilson’s groovy little Honda.

This 1971 Norton Dunstall 810 Sleeper is a factory-built superbike, not one of the dozens of modified Commandos that followed the factory run. It has had a recent restoration, which included a new steel fuel tank to replace the ethanol-damaged fiberglass original. The steel tank is a great addition if you plan to ride this bike, but it would be a great idea to have the fiberglass unit restored all the same. In its 48 years, the bike hasn’t managed to crack 3,000 miles.

From the seller:

You are looking at a rare 1971 Norton Dunstall 810 Sleeper model. They say that less than five percent of advertised Dunstalls are true factory bikes, rather they are regular Nortons with added Dunstall parts. This is the real deal, an unrestored factory produced bike with 2,100 original miles. It’s in amazing original condition with great patina. It comes with incredible documentation, original bill of sale, correspondence between the original owner and Paul Dunstall, shipping forms, customs forms and more. It really belongs is a Norton collection or a museum as it’s a true time capsule.

The Sleeper model was designed to look like a regular Commando but run circles around them. This one includes the following options verses a regular Sleeper, 810 kit, Mk 4 Cams, a rare Quaife five speed transmission, high performance Dr. Gordon Blair exhaust and an electronic ignition.

The bike was just recommissioned by Jaye Strait of Britech New England, a well known British Bike expert. New carbs, coils, fuel lines, gas tank, etc. The tank was replaced due to ethanol having its way with the original fiberglass one. The new steel tank was painstakingly modified to look like the original, including reproducing the original decals and rear tank mounts. The original which is included can be repaired but we decided to go with steel for riding the bike but keep the original for collecting. The bike runs great pulls like a race horse smoothly through all gears and idles beautifully once warmed up. It’s very entertaining to ride for an almost fifty-year-old bike. However, if you are going to ride it new tires are needed as the set on the bike is very old.

I’m happy to answer any questions and supply more photos. I will also work with your shipping company, but you are responsible for shipping. No low ball offers or tire kickers please.

The bike is located in Concord, NH, and is listed on eBay with a starting bid of $15,000. If early English monsters are your thing, it’d be tough to find a cooler one.

Museum Piece: 1986 Yamaha FZ600

It’s not every day you see a 1986 Yamaha FZ600 restored to museum quality sporting a fuel tank that has never had gas in it. There are plenty of nice ones around, but their value isn’t commensurate with a full restoration, and most have been ridden enough to just be cool old-school riders. This one is the exception. It hasn’t cracked 3,000 miles, and the seller completed most of a cosmetic restoration with the intention of making a time capsule.

1986 Yamaha FZ600 for sale on eBay

According to the listing, most of the  bodywork is NOS, and we assume that includes the fuel tank, since its almost 2,500 doesn’t jibe with the notion that it has never had gas in it. Still, you really just won’t see a more perfect example of a bike from the dawn of fully-faired race replicas.

The 1986 Yamaha FZ600 was designed to tap into rising demand for 500cc GP-aping street bikes, and used a modified version of the engine from the XJ600. It was something of a parts-bin special, sharing its engine and brakes with a raft of contemporary Yamaha offerings. It was replaced in 1988 by the much better known and better-loved FZR600. But there is nothing like the original, and this bike embodies its era wonderfully.

From the eBay listing:

99% perfect FZ600 museum piece. I purchased this bike about 5 years ago as a display only keeper.
The bike was in perfect running order but hasn’t been started since it’s minor cosmetic restoration.
If the next owner chooses to ride it, at minimum it will need a battery and gas (the tank is NOS and has never had fuel in it. Other than that it might need a carb cleaning at the most.

When I purchased the bike it was a little beat up cosmetically, nothing major just a scratch here or there. Over the last 5 years I replaced all flawed items with NOS parts including most body panels. My intention was to bring it back to showroom condition.

The FZ is 100% stock, unmolested and is a perfect as you will find, you will not be disappointed.

US sales only/ shipping is buyers responsibility/ 0 feedback bidders will be canceled unless I am assured you are serious.

With more than five days left in the auction, bidding on this cool time capsule has yet to eclipse $3,000. If this keeps up, someone is going to snag a deal.
