1998 Aprilia RS250

Located in Coopersburg, Pennsylvania is a quite nice 1998 Aprilia RS250 with 23,336 miles (!).  It would less surprising if it was actually 23k kilometers, but, this is apparently a well used RS250; the seller (A dealer) claims to have recently done a full motor and transmission rebuild.  Scratches on left side from going down (not mentioned at speed or if just dropped) but not shown in pictures and a crack under the headlight are the only claimed defects.  This bike is registered with an opening bid of $6,500 and no reserve.  I’d be interested to see this start at a lower opening bid to see how the miles reflect on the selling price.  See the eBay ad here

EDIT: This bike sold with one bid for $6,500 on 07/01/2009.

If you’re interested in a track only Aprilia, there is a 1996 Aprilia RS125 in Gaithersburg, Maryland.  This RS is in track condition, with different colored plastics and scars.  The bike will need to be gone through as the motor isn’t running correctly.  The motor does have some modifications and comes with a partial spares package.  The buy it now is $4,500 with a $2,000 opening bid and a reserve.  Also, check out the sellers Ferrari Mondial convertible in the background.  See the eBay ad here

EDIT: This bike received ten bids to the amount of $3,400 but didn’t meet reserve on 07/01/2009.

1994 Honda RVF400R NC35

Located in Massachusetts is a track prepared 1994 Honda RVF400R NC35.  The bike has no title and is far from street legal with supposedly $10k invested in it.  This NC35 looks like it needs to be gone through before it hits the track again, the seller doesn’t mention the last time it was run but mentions that it only has 5300km–the odometer shows 14532km.  This would be quite a capable track bike once cleaned up and gone through.  See the eBay ad here.

1994 Honda RS125

Now if you saw our last post for a pristine RS125, but wanted something you could seriously ride for track days or race, we have a perfect example in Alpharetta, Georgia.  This Honda RS125 is the perfect example of a serious race bike: not the prettiest thing, but gets the job done.  A RS125 would be a blast on the track and this example would be a perfect way to get there with a little work.  See the eBay ad here.

EDIT: Sold for $2,600.00 on 06/14/2009.

1991 Honda RS125

Located in Augusta, Georgia is a beautiful example of a Honda RS125.  This 125 series is what many fledgling GP stars, GP hopefuls, and weekend warriors enjoy because of it’s focus on bike control over brute power.  This example has been nicely restored and presents well.  The description of pearl paints and polished pieces would normally be off putting but this RS125 looks incredible.  The seller claims the bike has been a home art piece (with pictures to prove it) since 2006 and it is very believable.  If you were actually wanting to run this bike (which I hope you would) for track days–or race it– it would need a going over and possible tune up, but would be one of the best examples once done.  If you’d like to bid on it, see the eBay ad here.

EDIT: Did not meet reserve at $3,051.00 on 6/16/09.
