1993 Honda RS125 NF4 On eBay

This is a fantastic looking NF4 RS125 on eBay!

Bike:  1993 Honda RS125

Location:  Lexington, Kentucky

This RS125 looks to be in very good condition being finished in a “House Of Color” (Kolor) candy blue scheme with silver Honda wings.  This RS hasn’t been run in at least three years but, was run at Daytona in 2005.  The spares included with this bike include an extra cylinder, plugs, sprockets, rings, fork seals, gaskets, clutch plates and some other items.

Because it’s been sitting for so long, and these bikes are so simple, I would suggest going through it before running it just to be sure everything is as it should be.  I think I’ve said it before but, these NF4 RS’s aren’t competitive with the ’95+ NX4 RS’s.  However, these bikes are less temperamental than the later bikes and make fantastic track day bikes or vintage machines if you have a sanctioning body that has a separate class for them.  The ’93 bikes wear the same front tire as the newer bikes but, have a smaller rear wheel (By a 1/2″).  Tires can still be easily sourced and I’ve actually been told that the larger size will fit on the narrower rim–however, I have no idea how that alters the handling.  These bikes are perfect if you want to play a Gran Prix legend on a budget.  Based on the condition and spares, I would expect to see this bike go for right around $2,500.  See other RS125s we’ve featured here.  See this RS on eBay .

2005 Derbi GPR50 With Only 70 Miles In Washinton State

This is a perfect looking GPR50 with less than 100 miles since new!

Bike:  2005 Derbi GPR50

Price:  $2,987

Location:  Kirkland, Washington

Ever been to a Costco and wondered where they got the name, Kirkland, for their private-label items?  Well, Costco’s headquarters were in Kirkland, Washington from 1987 to 1996–the same city that this GPR is available in.  This GPR is available from a dealer and only features 70 miles from new.  The hi-resolution photos agree with the mileage showing a bike that looks to be brand new in every way.  Normally, small displacement bikes have low mileage because people buy them, put around on them and realize they don’t have enough power for any sense of regular use and sell them (I’ve done it).  However, this bike has only covered probably sixty miles since being sold of the showroom floor five years ago.  This bike is 100% stock and the only imperfections look to be some corrosion on the brake rotors front & rear.  There is no mention of a street legal title but I would have to assume there is one given no disclosure from the dealer.  See this cool looking piece of garage art on Craigslist here.

1996 Honda RS125 (NX4) On eBay

A nice looking NX4 RS125 with a good spares package that is ready to go!

Bike:  1996 Honda RS125

Price:  Currently on eBay for $3,000 with two days remaining and the reserve has not been met.

Location:  Great Falls, Virginia

Mileage:  200 miles on top-end

The spares for this bike mainly consist of the small things that would eat you up buying piece by piece (Jets, needles, sprockets, etc.) but it also comes with some nice items such as warmers, tires, and extra cases.  Here is a full list:

Engine Parts:

Used case with crank

New/barely used cylinder (don’t remember – it’s flawless)

Main Jets 150, 152, 155, 158, 160, 168, 170, 172, 175, 2x 178, 180, 185, 188, 190, 192, 195, 198, 200

Pilot jets: 45, 48, 2x 50

Full set of needles:  1468J, 1469J, 1371J, 1269J,1270N, 1368J, 1365J, 1271N, 1370J…too many to type

Used Crank

7 used pistons

New and used rings


Base gaskets: 0.4, 2x 0.5, 0.6

Engine case cover gasket



Front sprockets: 14, 2x 15, 2x 16, 17

Rear sprockets: 34, 35, 36, 4x 37, 38, 39, 40, 41

Stock steering damper

Foot pegs

Brake and shift levers

Clutch cable


Stock silencer

Brake pads

Fairing stays

Other good stuff:

Graves tire warmers front/rear

Set of rain tires

2-stroke oil

Many spare fasteners

I wouldn’t use the used pistons and used crank as the risk wouldn’t be worth it, but that’s just me.  This bike seems ready to go and will compete with all the other RS125’s because they haven’t changed much since ’95.  If you’d like a little 125 this is worth considering, it’ll be interesting to see what the reserve on it is.  .

Honda CBR150R Repsol Replica In Idaho

This is a very nice looking CBR150R Repsol bike located in Idaho!  Located in Boise, Idaho is a CBR150R with 7,000mi–possibly km.  The seller isn’t too descriptive, he doesn’t even state that it’s a CBR but, it’s still one located in the U.S.  The seller does state that it is in showroom condition but, doesn’t have a title.  The asking price of $2,000 should be a little flexible as it’ll take some work for the buyer to get a title.  Also, don’t be led to believe that it’s a simple procedure that you just need to fill a form out for, you should have done this before unless you’re willing to be possibly defeated.  See this example on Craigslist here.

Honda CBR125R For Cheap In North Carolina

This CBR125R is in the U.S. and pretty cheap!  Located in Morrisville, North Carolina is a Honda CBR125R with 3,500 miles.  Now, let’s just be straight, the seller doesn’t mention the year of the bike and this bike has a Canadian title and current registration, there are also no photos in the ad.  The asking price of $1,500 is realistic for an Canadian registered bike in the U.S.  Now, this bike could be an easy project for someone who has done this before as I would expect this bike to be around $2,500–or more–with U.S. registration depending on condition.  But, if you’re looking at this bike, be realistic if you can actually complete this project or not.

The CBR125R has been produced since 2004.  It features a liquid-cooled, four-stroke, single with just over 13hp and weighs in just under 300lbs.  These replaced the two-stroke NSR125 line.  The first iteration was from 2004-2006 with the current look being introduced in 2007 with both models resembling the CBR600RR.  The ’04-’06 bikes are equipped with carburetors and the ’07+ bikes have electronic fuel injection (PGM-IV) and have some other changes to more closely resemble the CBR1000RR.

See a post we had for some 2008 CBR125R’s available in the U.S. here.  I’ve also included two photos from that post but, they are NOT of the bike currently for sale!  See the Craigslist post for the one in NC here.
