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.
