Rapp Fan? 2006 Suzuki GSX-R1000 ex Michael Jordan Motorsports racer


Here is a quickie: a 2006 GSX-R1000 reportedly from the Michael Jordan race stable and ridden by Steve Rapp. Rapp did indeed ride for MJM in 2006 – on the #15 bike alongside team mate Jake Holden – and finished 11th in points with a season best of 6th place.

This is the age old question: How much for a used race bike? Does the fact that MJM campaigned this bike in AMA help at all? Does Steve Rapp add to the value? What about the signatures? There are likely some cool bits on the bike, but this is a production-based machine and not a prototype; you can likely find those bits online today.

Rapp Attack! 2006 Kawasaki ZXR636 Attack Performance AMA racebike


Listed as Steve Rapp’s Attack Performance Kawasaki for the 2006 season, this Kawasaki ZXR636 might just be the perfect track day weapon. The seller reports that this machine remained in as-raced AMA condition with the expection of a new Attack motor.


Steve Rapp is known for his ability to race practically anything. And although he has only experienced spotty success, his continued effort to his craft is highlighted by his ascention into the CRT level of MotoGP (although he is equally at home on such diverse machinery as the TTXGP electric racers).


From the seller:
A genuine Steve Rapp ATTACK KAwasaki ZXR636. Purchased at the end of ’06 season. Received bike with a new ATTACK motor and many extras. They left all the AMA trick parts on this machine, with papered Dynoed 124 horse power on the ground. (With only premium gasoline in the tank). More horse power available with racing fuel. Bike was on TV, racing in the AMA. Only ridden 8 track days since purchase! EXTRAS: Olius front fork intervals, steering stabilizer, rear sets, Arrow titanium pipes (from motor to end of exhaust pipe/only 2 lbs), spare front and rear wheels (identical to those on bike now), spare ATTACK body work, Dyna Jet pc3 ignition module and quick shifter, Olius rear shock, front brake fade adjuster, spare counter shaft and rear wheel sprockets, quick change rear tire and other quick release items. Originally purchased for $14k back on ’06.


This bike is located in Bakersfield, CA. The opening bid is set at $5,000 with a BIN set at $6,500. I would imagine the reserve is set somewhere between the two.

1986 Yamaha FZ750 For Sale-

1986 Yamaha FZ750 For Sale

Location: Manhattan Beach, CA
Mileage: 17,000
Price: $4,000.00
Selling from: 2007 Daytona 200 AMA winner Steve Rapp’s personal collection

Introduced in 1985, the FZ750 was a solid performer, but as we all know it was quickly outpaced by the GSX-R’s in 1986. The FZ’s sported some of Yamaha’s modern era technology and utilized the Genesis 5 valve cylinder heads which helped pump out a whopping 75hp at the rear wheel. Granted, not much by today’s standard, but in 1986 that was kik’n some ass!

1986 Yamaha FZ 750. If you have been looking for a nice FZ,This is it! Its has been gone over and is ready to ride or store in collection.It is all stock, just replaced clutch, battery,tires, oil,filter, chain, sprockets, spark plugs etc. 17K miles runs great!

As “days gone by” come full circle, bikes such as this one have found a special place in many hearts and garages. I can remember spending hours in the local Yamaha showroom drooling over the latest offerings from Yamaha in 1986. All the while knowing good and well that I couldn’t afford the brochure I was holding in my hand.

If any of you have a spot in the garage for a now ‘classic’ Cafe’ style sport bike with a sprinkling of exclusivity added for good measure- Click here to pick this one up.
