1998 Aprilia RS 250 Cup Bike

1998 Aprilia RS 250 racer for sale

This one’s not perfect, but the asking price of $4,800.00 seems to be in line for the condition and history. Bike is located in Atlanta and is said to have a fresh build on the “street” version motor. I’m really digging the paint job even though it does appear to be peeling a little on the tank. The seller doesn’t give much info about the condition other than it is straight and ready to race. Visually, I can see the some rash on the right side, a dent in the expansion chamber, and as mentioned the paint is peeling on the tank. It appears to have been wrenched on by the boys at Speedwerks so it has to be fast right? I know they made my 400 run like a scalded dog so I speak from experience.

I know I’ve had a couple of emails from people asking about RS’s for sale and how they’ve been on the look out for them. And as promised, I’m posting a pure racer for your consideration. And if a racer isn’t up your alley there is a real that we’ve had posted before on RSBFS.com

Cheers!

1989 Yamaha OW 01 750 FZRR

Yes, I had to obtain special permission from the Boss man to post a non US listing, but since I know he is a sucker for OW 01’s I knew it wouldn’t be a problem. This one has 6,998 on the clock, which I think is necessary for a 20 year old bike. Much like the other Super bikes I’ve posted recently, I think it is important to ride them every now and then to keep everything lubricated and working properly. It also allows the new owner to have less guilt when he/she takes it out for a spin. Garage Queen bikes are good, but what fun are they?

The late 80’s/early 90’s Homologation Super Bikes are my absolute favorite. I know, I know I have a lot of favorites, but this era is the pinnacle for me.

Some information:

YAMAHA FZR750R OW01 SUPER BIKE first registered April 1989. Completely original bike in near perfect condition. Very hard to find like this and probably the best one we have been able to offer. Low mileage with only 6988 miles covered. These bikes are amongst the greatest bikes of all time and a collector’s dream. Frame type # 3FV – 300kph speedo. Road use only, not tracked. UK registered with log book V5 and MOT.

Condition:

The paintwork is excellent.The frame is exactly as it left the factory – not polished and the fork lowers are again spotless. This bike has the twin Ohlins remotes and the aluminum top shock mount. The exhaust end can is perfect with no marks The bike stops, steers and rides beautifully and there are no strange noises . The motor pulls sweetly from low revs and idles evenly. Yes, it is expensive, but the best always are.

It is being offered in US dollars for $14,392, if my conversion is correct, or 8,995 pounds. As the seller states “it is expensive, but the best always are.” It looks to be all original with the exception of the tires and chain/sprocket. We posted a few RC’s recently, one with original everything and the other with replacement tires and chain/sprockets. The difference in bids really amazed me; the all original fetched bids up to 28g’s and the other stalled around 20g’s.

At $14,392.00 usd this is an absolute steal!

I would like to thank Jeff, one of our avid fans, for setting me straight on the valuation of these bikes.

These are super rare and this one looks like it would make a fine addition to any Homologation Collection.

Cheers!

1994 H-D VR1000 #20 of 50 ever made!

1994 Harley Davidson VR 1000 #20 being offered at $55,000.00

Ultra rare is the only wat to describe the VR1000 when they come up for sale. This one is located Viola, WI and has both the OEM bodywork and a set of race bodywork that is currently on the bike. The first two pictures below are of the actual bike for sale, but the last two are pictures that I found just to show how it looks with the OEM bodywork on it. I’ve had the opportunity to view a race version and a street version up close and personal and I must say that it is unique in it’s own way. I don’t think it’s any secret that these were only street legal, when sold as new, in Poland. But, I’m sure some of our viewers could get it titled and tagged for street use in the states 😉

You may recall a few months back I posted a Pascall Picotte VR1000 Full Factory Racer that was for sale at Picottoe Motorsports. It was listed for sale at $50,000.00 and didn’t sell on ebay. So for me it raises the question of which is more rare? A Factory VR racer or a Factory street goer? Now, #20 is not all stock and that is being disclosed by the owner/seller. S&S has done extensive engine work and it has been ran in the Salt Flats. So what do you think? Is a VR Factory racer more or less valuable than a bone stock VR?

The VR in H-D’s words:

In 1994, Harley-Davidson returned to the top level of professional road racing with the VR 1000 Superbike Race Team. Despite memorable performances during its eight-year run, including a pole position in 1996 and podium finishes by Pascal Picotte in 1999, Harley-Davidson concluded in 2001 that the VR 1000 was at the end of its development cycle and was no longer competitive in the AMA Superbike series. While the program was ended following the 2001 season, the VR 1000 Superbike racing program helped Harley-Davidson develop and refine technologies such as liquid-cooling and electronic fuel injection. The program also led to the development Harley-Davidson’s first production liquid-cooled motorcycle, the 2002 VRSCA V-Rod.

The H-D PR makes it sound a little better perhaps than it actually was for the race team in my opinion. Some of the last memories I have of it on the race track is Scott Russell leaning it against the gaurd rail, sitting down and watching the rest of the race as if that’s what was expected to happen. It seemed as if no matter who was recruited to to help the effort it didn’t help the reliability and speed of the bike. I personally was very excited to see H-D competing in the AMA and wanted them to suceed. But, we all know the result. However, we still have the VR1000 which will live on to be looked at and discussed for many years to come.

The story behind #20:

This particular VR1000 was purchased by S&S Cycle to get an idea of where H-D might be going in the future. The bike and engine were all new, aluminum perimeter frame, top of the line suspension and lots of exotic light weight components. The engine was impressive, 60 degree V-twin, liquid cooling, 4 valve head, overhead cam shafts, and fuel injection. S&S worked for a couple years on the VR1000 expecting to see a version hit production or at least see it become street legal in the US. Power and torque were raised dramatically over the stock bike, special pistons, cams, head work, intake, and a high output exhaust were the majority of the improvements. In 1995 S&S took the VR out to the Bonneville Salt Flats. The bike was tall with a short wheelbase, perfect for road racing, but at Bonneville, not so good. At top speed on the salt the VR would just spin its rear tire. The upgrades did prove to be reliable and much faster than stock, it ran 166 mph on salt, not bad.

Bike is said to be in excellent condition and ready to fire. I’ve never seen one of these on the road and don’t really expect to, but think of the conversations you would have at your local Bike Night.

Cheers!

Three Aprilia RS50 Race Bikes

Located in Torrance, California are three Aprilia RS50s in race trim.  The seller doesn’t list much info about these bikes other than to contact him but these aren’t street legal and I assume untitled.  However, the seller does have a decent spares package!  If you’re interested in more information, don’t hesitate to contact the seller.  See the ad on ApriliaForum.com here.

1995 Aprilia RS250

Located in Northern California is a titled and plated 1995 Aprilia RS250.  This isn’t a converted track/cup bike, it is a factory street bike.  I don’t think this bike has appeared on RSBFS before, however there have been several ’95s available in California.  The seller states this bike is immaculate, has low miles and factory original.  The asking price is $9,500; seems a bit high for this time of year but if it is in original factory condition it might be worth it.  See the bike on Apriliaforum.com here. See the photos here.

A litter of Ducati Desmosedici D16RRs for sale – take your pick!

Sometimes there are just so many cool and rare bikes for sale out there that it’s hard to choose which ones to post. I came across a few Bayliss reps and 1098Rs, which in their own rights are rare birds, but for me the ultimate still has to be the Desmosedici. I have located 8 (would you believe it?) for sale around the world (I figure if you are in the market for one, where they are in the world doesn’t really matter, right?) and here they are:

 (this one has a long list of tasty upgrades added):

I never thought I’d see so many D16RRs up for sale at one time.  Any lucky prospective buyer will get the opportunity to hand pick the best from this bunch.  Now where did I put that lottery ticket?!
