1999 Aprilia Cup Bike for sale in Ohio

1999 Aprilia Cup bike for sale with less than 1,000 miles.

Price: $4,000
Location: Marysville, Ohio

Submitted to us by Mark, the proud owner of this super nice RS250 racer. Mark has submitted many bikes to RSBFS over the past year, but sadly enough this time it’s his own that he has to submit.

This one is still dressed as it came from the factory in the classic Johnny Cash black. I like the black and silver version as well as any of the RS’s, but I bet if you’d ask me tomorrow I would probably change my mind – again!

The RS250 has a huge following and I’m sure this one will be snatched up quickly considering it has less than 1000 miles on the clock.

Have a look and take notice to how sparkly clean it is:

After much debate, I have decided I need to sell my RS250. I do not really want to sell but I have to many bills piling up that need to get paid.

99 RS Cup Bike, just under 1000 miles. Basically all stock, only upgrade is braided brake lines. I bought the bike several years ago from some one in Florida, it needed cleaned and some of the hardware replaced (corrosion). So I took it apart down to the frame, I have been reassembling and replacing hoses and hardware as needed. I have cleaned and refurbished pieces as needed as well. Bike still needs to be completed but all parts are with it. Body work is in okay condition, some nicks and scratches. No cracks or broken pieces. Bike does need a new chain and a new battery. Other than that it is all there and in good working condition. Bike comes with rear stand and standard spares box and manual. I am looking for $4000. Bike is located in Marysville OH.

So it’s all stock, has super low miles and has been meticulously cleaned. I asked Mark about the “Bike still needs to be completed but all parts are with it.” part and he replied with.

“Bike is pretty much done, I just put the front end together and hung the body work etc. for the pictures. Bike still needs a few things hung on it, all fluids and a chain. Battery would not take a charge so it needs that as well.”

So I’m guessing a few hours and about $150.00 bucks and your ready to take your 55hp beast out and beat up on some 600’s at your next local track day.

If Mark’s bike is of interest to you, you can view his original for sale post by clicking here. There are also many high-res pictures available after you make the jump.

Good luck with the sale Mark!

1996 Honda RS125 NX4 In California At A Very Good Price!

This NX4 RS125 comes with a ton of spares and is priced very nicely!  Located in San Diego, California is a 1996 Honda RS125 finished in baby blue.  The seller states that this bike has a completely rebuilt, fresh, motor; new tires, new chain and many extras.  Looking at the photos this bike has an extensive spares package of consumables.  The photo shows five HRC pistons–if they’re all full and new–which, at $246 a piece retail, is $1,230 in spare pistons alone.  The photo also looks to show additional barrels, new and used, chains, sprockets, manuals and other assorted pieces.  Do the math, we’ve seen the bottom of early NX4’s at around $3,500-4,000 dollars for a bike in good condition with a decent spares package;  This bike is only priced at $3,500 and comes with over $1,000 in spare piston kits alone.  The ’96MY bikes are the last of the leaded head bikes but, the RS125 remained largely unchanged–there are some small changes–from ’95-present.  I honestly wish I wasn’t writing this post and were instead going to pick it up or calling for a shipper.  If you can live with baby blue or, can decently wield a spray gun have a look at this RS125 on Craigslist here.

2000 Aprilia RS250 Titled & Registered In Southern California

This is a nicely modified Aprilia RS250 that is titled & registered in California!  Located in Monrovia, California is a titled 2000 Aprilia RS250 with a 15 digit VIN and 3,854 miles on the clock.  The seller states that this bike is in fantastic condition and features:  “arrow exhaust, ohlins steering dampner, Woodcraft rearsets, floating front disks, quick shifter and more!” …and… “Also a bunch of spares: levers, exhaust, alternate fork and shock springs, sprockets, etc.”  The asking price is $7,000 which I would say is correct for a California bike with lower miles, a title, some good mod’s and some spares.  See the other California RS250’s we’ve posted here.  Spring isn’t an exciting time for Southern California so hurry up and buy a decent rider to enjoy ’round!  See this RS on Craigslist here.

1996 Aprilia RS250 Titled & Registered in California

This is a modified RS250 that is titled & registered in Central California!  Located in Sacramento, California is a 1996 Aprilia RS250 with 27,000km (16,777mi).  This bike has been re-painted red, fitted with a 2007 GSX-R1000R front end, new stem bearings and Brembo RCS 19 brake master.  However, the seller believes that this bike has low compression and needs a top end.  The asking price for this bike is extremely high at $8,000 based on miles and condition.  It does have some mods that are worth some money but not what this seller is asking.  I do applaud the seller for posting some large pictures in the Craigslist ad which link to their Photobucket account.  See the photos here.  See the Craigslist ad here.

2004 Aprilia RS250 Cup Bike With Less Than 400 Miles In Texas

This RS250 has less than 400 original miles total.  Located in El Paso, Texas is a 2004 Aprilia RS250 Cup bike with a 17 digit VIN but, no title.  The seller states that this bike has only 400 miles and has been kept in storage for the last six years with only occasional trips around the block to keep things lubed.  The bike does have some scrapes, holes drilled in the fairings from wood-blocks to protect them–the thought process on that one–and a bar end is missing.  The asking price is $6,000 putting it at the highest end for the RS250 Cup bikes we’ve seen.  This bike does have low miles and is the last year of production but, with the fairing damage it isn’t in museum condition as-is.  Some information about the Aprilia Cup can be found here.  If you’re interested see this bike on Craigslist here.

1995 Aprilia RS250 Reggiani Replica

1995 Aprilia RS250 Reggiani Replica with only 2,336 miles on the clock and a starting bid of $5,000 with the reserve still on.

UPDATE: bike sold for $9,000!

The owner is stating that this is not a converted cup bike, but rather a 🙂 🙂 🙂 17 digit VIN # street bike. 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 Okay, so now that the important stuff is out of the way lets move on to my thoughts.

These are probably my favorite RS250’s, but are followed very closely by the all silver versions. The day is drawing closer and closer for me to pull the trigger on buying one of these. But, for now I’ll just have to watch video’s and dream.

This one is chalk full with extra niceties such as new smoke windscreen, new carbon front fender, new brake pads front and rear, new Pro-Tek clipons, new woodcraft rearsets, new Ohlins steering damper, new DID gold -X chain and a set of Jim Lomas stainless steel exhausts with carbon fiber re-packable cans. As it sits it looks like you would just need to add gas/oil and a grin. I can’t imagine sitting at a stop light and observing all of the stares while riding a 2 stroke in the states. The average person would have to think “WT* is that guy riding? It sounds like a weed wacker.” Of course they’d be saying that and coughing at the same time because they’d be inhaling eau du Toilette 2 stroke parfume.

When these come available and are posted on RSBFS they usually go pretty quick. If you’ve been lurking, but are like me and haven’t pulled the trigger yet this one might push you to do so. It looks to be in very good shape and as mentioned has some tasty upgrades to boot. You can check it out

Here are the pictures:

Quotes from the auction:

If you are looking at this bike you know that this bike with a 17 Digit VIN does not come up for sale very often. This is not a converted cup bike, but is actually a factory 17 digit street bike.

Here is the ultimate cornering machine, very light and one of the last street legal two strokes here in the USA. The bike is in excellent mechanical and cosmetic shape. It has a V-Twin two stroke engine manufactured by Suzuki for Aprilia along with a set of Jim Lomas Stainless steel pipes. The carberator jetting is spot on. All the lighting works and is NYS inspected. The bike was purchased by me in May 2006 and had 1700 miles on the clock. The bike was purchased by me from a well known Aprilia Forum member who is very familiar with these bikes. It now has 2336 miles on it as I have other bikes and have not ridden this bike very much. The reason that I am selling is that I am thinning out the stable. This bike always draws a crowd and you will not see another one like this at any bike night.

And there you have it- Super low miles, well taken care of and complete with go fast stickers.

Aprilia RS250 Aprilia Cup Track Bike In California

Here is another RS250 in California!  Located in Ramona, California is an untitled Aprilia RS250 Cup track bike.  The seller does state that this bike comes with the original fairings in a box, scratch free, suggestion that this might have been a street bike originally.  The seller makes no mention of spares, other than plastics, suggesting that the bike is priced high at $7,500.  The plastics it comes with are worth a bit of money but, not the $3k that this bike is running over the track RS250s we’ve seen.
