This is a fantastic looking RS125, Castrol replica!
Bike: 1993 Honda RS125
Miles: 0 (Since rebuild)
Location: Winter Haven, Florida
The seller states that this RS was completely restored and rebuilt by Rising Sun Cycles–a very prominent name in the U.S. two-stroke GP bike segment. The paint for this bike, alone, came in at $4,500–ouch! Anyway, this is a fantastic looking RS in, what looks to be, a Castrol scheme very similar to what Joey Dunlop ran.
The auction also includes:
Bike also comes with a complete roller, minus tank. There is also two sets of new bodywork and a ton of other spares, plus some new rains.
I have 2 complete extra motors, 1 new, 1 with time on it.
If you’re still reading this, you’ve probably started to reconsider your original assumptions after seeing the asking price. The Museum Quality RS also comes with $1.2K-1.5k worth of spares, possibly more. That being said, is the main bike shown here worth the remaining $4k? Well, it would be very difficult to replicate the restored bike using the $1.5k and an additional $2.5k: knowing what parts & labor would add up to at RSC combined with the purported paint cost. If you’re in love with the NF4 RS125, or would simply like a living room piece and a track bike (with a little work) for the price of an older NX4 RS125; I’d say this auction should absolutely be considered. The asking price is a bit startling, but with the whole picture and some math, it doesn’t sound that bad at all. See this fantastic looking RS on eBay .
