This bike looks great in silver with the subtle markings. Spotted for sale in Chico on Craigslist is this Suzuki RGV250 for $6000:

quote from seller’s listing:
I’m selling a 1991 Suzuki RGV 250 VJ 22. It’s a 250cc water cooled V-twin 2-stroke. The bike was imported from New Zealand. It is currently plated and registered in California. The bike is fairly clean for it’s age. It has a few nicks and scratches. The bike runs great. I left the oil injection in place for street use. I have changed all the fluids recently and the power valves have been out and inspected for wear. It has a pair of Michelin Pilot powers with a lot of tread left on them. The chain and sprockets look good. The previous owner had the top end done at 18k kilometers.

$6k doesn’t sound too bad, especially considering it’s plated. And are those Arrow pipes? Yum!

1996 Aprilia RS250 For Sale

I am a total sucker for Aprilia RS250, especially when they’re titled and for sale! Here’s a beautiful silver 1996 Aprilia RS250 that was on eBay in Florida:

quote from seller’s eBay listing:

1996 Aprilia RS-250. These bikes are VERY rare and VERY hard to find. This one is an even more rare find in that it is in EXCELLENT shape. Starts on first kick just about every time and is very fast! This one is a 2-stroke 250cc bike, it does not have electric start on it (to shed the weight of a generator, battery, and starting system), it is kick start only. This one is completely street legal with headlights, tail lights, and turn signals.

And here’s a video of the bike and exhaust note:

The description details the condition of the paint and some scuffs, but really the bike looks great in the pictures. The auction ended without meeting reserve at $6900, but the buy-it-now shows $8k. I’ve seen them over $10k and with only 7600 miles, it might be worth contacting the dealer to see if it’s still available.

2006 Paul Smart 1000LE For Sale in Lynnwood

I spotted this bike for sale on DesmoNorthwest. While not exactly what you’d call rare, they’re definitely not commonplace either. And for $9700 I think you do a lot worse if looking for something special.

quote from DesmoNorthwest post:

OK guys, I’ve got to trim the herd of bikes in the garage. You know you have too many bikes when you have to start bugging your kids to store your bikes in their garage. Up for sale now is the Ducati. This one is going to hurt. The bike resides just north of Seattle.

This is probably the sexiest machine you’ll ever wrap your legs around.

The bike is basically stock…. because stock is pretty friggin’ impressive. She’s suspended with Ohlin’s suspension and has a nice throaty growl from the stock exhaust.

1991 Honda CBR400RR Baby Blade $3,700 For Sale in California

As a sucker for dual headlights, the 400rr always gives me a bit of a tickle when I see one for sale. Check out this highly attainable example, with title, for sale in San Jose:

RARE * 1991 Honda CBR 400 (NC29) CA. Street-Titled on Bay Area Riders Forum

1991 Honda 400RR For Sale in California on Craigslis1991 Honda 400RR For Sale in California on Craigslis

This is a clear street-titled grey-market CBR400. The Odometer reads less than 16,000 kilometers (that comes out to be less than 10,000 miles!) This CBR400RR is not a museum piece or a beauty queen. The bodywork does show signs of cracking and repair. All locks use the same single key. (I have two spare keys for the bike).

No doubt this one is a bit rough, but can you think of a cooler beginner bike? Or first entry into track days or amateur racing? Or replace all the plastics with OEM, which couldn’t be more than a couple thousand, and ride this low mileage bike for the rest of the season and flip it next spring. This a buy!
