Featured Listing: One-Owner 2000 Cagiva Mito 125 with 667 Miles !

Update 9.29.2021: Price reduced to $11,400, serious offers only. Please contact Sean with your interest. -dc

From the Seattle area’s Garage Assassins, today’s Feature is a micro-giant, 125 cc cranking out 34 hp, weighing just 284 lbs. and looking for all the world like a Ducati 916 !  Always in a collector’s hands it has just 667 miles, all DOT equipment, and current registration.  We’ll let Duncan pick up the story from here –

2000 Cagiva Mito 125 for sale

The 2000 Cagiva Mito 125 boasts a maximum power output of 34 horsepower and 23 Nm of torque from its liquid-cooled, two-stroke, 125cc, single cylinder powerplant that was mated to a six-speed manual transmission. 284lbs. 3.4 Gallon capacity. Legendary designer Massimo Tamburrini re-styled the bike in 1994, giving it a knife-edge fairing, winged tank and monoposto seat fairing reminiscent of the Ducati superbike. Massimo Tamburrini went on to Ducati where he designed the 916 Ducati. This bike has many of the very same design attributes in a smaller package.

This entry-level machine boasts features such as a two-piece, dual seat, a full-fairing with a small, adjustable windshield, die-cast aluminum wheels, an analogue instrument cluster, a suspension package composed of a 40mm Marzocchi telescopic front fork and an adjustable mono-shock in the rear, a disc braking system both in the front and in the rear and a paint and graphic scheme inspired from racing
motorcycles.

This special find is not even broken in yet. We still have in the box a factory upgrade package. Air intake, special jets for carburetion, rear sprocket plus an exhaust upgrade, still in original packaging.

Duncan asks $14,500 $11,400 for the 2000 Mito, and can be reached by email sennaducati79@gmail.com.

This 916 Ducati look alike is a Cagiva Mito 125 2-stroke, the same type of motorcycle that Valentino Rossi started his racing career on at a young age. Back in the day they had a 125cc class of highly modified 2-stroke street bikes for upstart racers in Europe. Cagiva was the bike. Cagiva even sold an entire massive hop up race kit to convert these little rockets into race bikes.

This one owner gem has never seen rain, never down, properly stored in a climate-controlled man cave filled with a proper collection of amazing Italian motorcycles. Owned and maintained by a skilled knowledgeable rider of many years. The bike has recently had a complete proper nut/ bolt go through. Runs perfect and strong. If you plan on riding versus display, we recommend newer tires. The tires are not cracked or damaged, just not as fresh for your riding safety.

Now just over twenty years old, this perfect Mito 125 might be a singular opportunity for the next collector.

Duncan offers assistance with worldwide shipping and asks $14,500 $11,400 for the 2000 Mito, contact him by email sennaducati79@gmail.com.

1991 Yamaha TZR 250 3XV For Sale!

1991 Yamaha TZR 250 For Sale on eBay!

Smoke’em if ya got’em!
I swear to you- every time I see a new 2 stroke up for sale I shake my piggy bank to see if more money has magically appeared. As usual, it just laughs at me and says “NOT TODAY!”

From the seller
SERIOUS COLLECTORS ONLY PLEASE.

SOLD ON BILL OF SALE, GREY-MARKET IMPORT.

CONCOURSE-LEVEL CONDITION IDEAL FOR A COLLECTOR. MECHANICALLY PERFECT, STARTS ON FIRST KICK.

Honestly- Tell me when the last time you rode or wanted to ride 280#’s of 30 year old sexiness that smoked and made a bunch of noise when you opened it up?


JDM only Yamaha TZR 250 3XV’s:
-45hp
-6 speeds
-A scant 280ish pounds
-V-Twin
-Adjustable Suspenders
-Upside Down Forks

Yes sir- Pure 2-Stroke Sport goodness right there! Now, I know you’re not going to stomp anyone a new mud hole drag racing, but you’d sure give them a run for their money in the twisties . . . that is, if you dared to ride this one. Parts for these are impossible to find and since this one looks to be in perfect condition I’m guessing I’d have a hard time taking it out of the garage. I’d probably just sit on it and make the BRAAAPPPPP sounds as I pretend to shift gears using the Yamaha name as the gears. Yammmmm (1st), Maaaaa (2nd), Haaaaa (3rd) BRAPPPPP!

$15,995 is steeeeep, but where else are ya gonna find one? I know where, but it’s not available yet – Our friends over at Iconic have one on deck- Yamaha TZR250 3XV, but it has A LOT more miles on it.

One thing I did notice worth mentioning is the sellers 66.7% eBay rating. I find that odd because most folks who sell these types of machines protect their ratings at all costs. With that said, if this one strikes your fancy make sure you do your DD and ask plenty of questions.

Did anyone else notice the tank sticker says “3MA” and the windscreen says “3XM”? Tim, can you offer any insight on this?

Damn, this one is nice!

Cheers!

2004 Aprilia RS250 Challenge Cup Race Bike!

2004 Aprilia RS250 For Sale on eBay!

There’s no doubt about it- Aprilia was the little Italian company that could from 1994 to 2007. Undersized and well under funded, Aprilia built a near perfect MotoGP racer and landed the best of the best to put the RS250 on top of the box for the majority of a 14 year span.

1994 Max Biaggi Aprilia
1995 Max Biaggi Aprilia
1996 Max Biaggi Aprilia
1997 Max Biaggi Honda
1998 Loris Capirossi Aprilia
1999 Valentino Rossi Aprilia
2000 Olivier Jacque Yamaha
2001 Daijiro Kato Honda
2002 Marco Melandri Aprilia
2003 Manuel Poggiali Aprilia
2004 Dani Pedrosa Honda
2005 Dani Pedrosa Honda
2006 Jorge Lorenzo Aprilia
2007 Jorge Lorenzo Aprilia

It’s not uncommon to hear the RS frame and banana swing arm to be perfect in every way. The RS motor was also said to be near perfect-cranking out around 60hp while producing around 30 pound feet of torque. This combination propelled the the RS to a top speed of about 130mph and was a strong enough package to lure in the hottest of young European talent. As previously mentioned, Aprilia won 9 our of 14 championships starting in 1994 and ending in 2007. Granted, I don’t think us mere mortals can compare to the likes of Biaggi, Capirossi, Rossi, Melandri, Poggiali or Lorenzo, but we can sure dream- right?

The seller of this Challenge Cup machine has some serious advice for any would be buyer. I feel it’s my duty to cover it before moving on to all things pictures, fantasy and drool.

The sellers warning
Don’t consider buying this if:
– The only 2-stroke you have ever started is a weed-whacker. This bike is the real deal.
– You have no idea what a carburetor does
– You want to ride it on the road. (This is only for the track). Has a 15 digit VIN (ZD4LDA5004S0043)
– You need electronic aids (ABS, traction control etc). There aren’t any.

Thanks to my buddy, Jay- former RSBFS.com writer and guru of all things Aprilia, I used to own one of these and I’d always park it next to my trusty Stihl FS85 line trimmer as a reminder that I wasn’t a worthy candidate for RS250 ownership.

Now that I’ve covered the disclaimer lets check it out-


 
Low mileage: Check!



 
Shiny bits and true Racer Boy exhaust: Check!



 
It has a motor: Check!
 


More from the seller
2004 Aprilia RS250 Challenge. (The last year this track-only bike was made)

Legendary frame and handling with huge Brembo brakes and nearly 60 BHP from its Suzuki 250cc engine
This machine is small and agile enough to teach you great track craft without ludicrous speeds. You’ll out-handle and out-brake almost anything on the track and still be able to reach 115mph on the straightaway

Never raced. Only used for track days by mid-level rider. I believe I am the second owner.
Used a few times a year, it now has only 3,765 miles

Run on 100% pure gas (no ethanol) 91 Octane with Motul 2-stroke oil. Has an oil pump so no need to premix.
Gas tank has been treated with epoxy
Original body work including tank and panels
Front and rear stand included

Owned by motorcycle enthusiast with 40 years of 2-stroke experience. I rebuilt the top end of the engine with advice and spares from TheTuningWorks (UK) who are renown experts in these engines. Used Evans coolant to prevent corrosion.
Nearly new Pirelli Diablo SuperCorsa tires with about four track days of wear.

There are pictures of the naked frame and subframe to show you that everything is straight, clean and undamaged.

The Aprilia forums reckon this is worth $9,000!

THIS BIKE IS THE REAL DEAL! TRACK-ONLY! NO REGISTRATION, NO PLATES, NO TITLE. Bill of sale only (as is always the case with track bikes).


 

And there you have it folks! If you fancy being like Rossi and kicking ass at your next track day- I’d highly suggest you skip the clapped out 2015 GSX-R and pick up this extremely nice RS250. I guarantee you’ll have more fun, track side conversation and a much higher resale value when you’ve had enough. Oh!, but let’s not forget, you must be pre-qualified in chainsaw or higher to purchase this machine.

Check out this track weapon here!

Ciao!

Featured Listing – 2006 Honda RS125R GP Racer!

Update 9.27.2021: SOLD IN JUST 4 DAYS to an RSBFS Reader! Congratulations to buyer and seller!

If you have a bike for sale that would benefit from this kind of exposure, contact us for a Featured Listing. -dc

There are sport bikes, there are track day bikes, and then there are full on GP racers. Today’s stunning Featured Listing is one of the latter. In fact, this RS125R represents the final build of the Honda 125cc two stroke bikes before the GP world turned to four strokes. And unlike some privateer machines which have been run hard, crashed often, rebuilt and thrashed again, this example is clean, complete, and rash free. If you are looking for that perfect man cave centerpiece, or if you fancy yourself some Valentino Rossi moves at your next track day or club racing event, you just might want to check this out. When you compare a kitted out street bike set up for the track, this 2006 Honda RS125 will stop quicker, handle better, and basically run rings around most non-race bikes for the same amount of coin.

From the seller:
Last of an era. About the model..
Factory HRC RS125R Grand Prix racer. These bikes ended production in 2004 but were assembled and sold until 2009. The bill of sale I have lists this example as 2006. It was superseded in 2010 by the NSF250R which was largely the same save for the 250cc four stroke engine and beefier swing arm. Overall power was down on the 250 compared to the 125CC but torque was up, so was weight…

SPECS
bhp 45
Weight 158lbs dry (yes you read that right)
Fuel 100 octane minimum

More from the seller:
Hello, you are viewing the last factory production two stroke Grand Prix road race motorcycle Honda ever made. These ended production in 2004 and were assembled and sold until sometime in 2009 without changes. It has a 125cc engine that makes 45hp and total bike weight of 158lbs dry. It requires premix fuel of 100 octane minimum. The engine was fully rebuilt at the end of its last racing season prior to my ownership. The only non-factory items are a VHM head, Moto Tassinari V Force reed valve, and Ceramic Wheel bearings. The bike is fully safety wired, and spares are readily available through several vendors in the USA.

I purchased this bike from a local dealership owner several years ago. His son had campaigned it briefly in the USGPRU series before outgrowing it and moving on to 600’s. As you can imagine being owned by a dealer it has been professionally maintained. I can see no evidence that has ever been down. It has been properly stored on display by its two included stands in a heated garage. The included stands are an OEM rear, and Battle Factory Front. This is the nicest RS I have seen in the US that is not still new in the crate. If your intent is to collect, display and occasionally fire it up its good to go. If you plan to track day or race it competitively you will need a new set of tires, as the Dunlop slicks that are on it though brand new, are at least seven years old.

More from the seller:
The extent of my ownership has been display and yearly warming up, function checks, then back to storage.
I would consider there to be two flaws on this entire bike, one the OEM windscreen has a crack which was drilled to stop the spread, and is missing a chip in upper left the corner, two it has a quarter sized hole in the upper fairing where the front stand was incorrectly placed into the bottom of the steering head, which fell off and punched through. This is not visible from above. If your seriously interested I can provide more specific pictures or schedule a time to view this piece of history in person. My price is negotiable in person within reason. I would work with you if you wished to ship it within the USA at your expense. A bill of sale will be provided as these motorcycles were never issued titles. Bring a gallon of VP C12 if you want a ride!

Asking Price: $8,000

The Honda RS125R is a pretty special machine. A factory-built racer intended for the sharp end of the GP grid, the RS125R was a weapon in the hands of heroes such as current stars Andrea Divizioso and Tom Luthi, or past multi-time winners like Dani Pedrosa and Loris Capirossi. Today these bikes are relatively rare (especially in this condition), collectable, and yet still very usable. The aftermarket has taken care of the concerns regarding spares, meaning that this is artwork you can fire off in anger a few times a year without fear of irreparable damage. And as the seller states, being previously owned by a Honda dealer certainly helped with the current condition and setup. For an asking price of only $8k you get history, speed, and a seductive silhouette – a bargain even before you fire it up! Good Luck!!

California Dreaming: 1985 Yamaha RZ350

Today’s find is a rare and wonderful thing. Not only is it a fantastic Yamaha RZ350 in classic racing colors, it also appears to be completely stock and original. And this is the funny bit here – in that this is perhaps the rarest of the RZ350s, given that this is an original California model. When released this would have been the heaviest and potentially most choked up model due to the additional EVAP canisters and extra-stringent emissions rules. But today the stock bits that made the RZ350 C.A.R.B. compliant in California are all but unobtainable – making this bike such a rare example of originality.

1985 Yamaha RZ350 for sale on eBay

The tech used to make the RZ350 50-state legal was substantial, but rather well known in automotive circles. Since we all know (and love) the blue smoke that emanates from a two-stroke, it should come as no surprise that the smoke is unburned hydrocarbons from the oil mixed in the gas. The oil is necessary to lube the bottom end, as two strokes do not have a crankcase full of oil. Additionally, two strokes have very dirty exhaust gas as some of the intake charge goes right out the exhaust port at the best of times. The smoky exhaust is evidence of greenhouse gas and particulate matter that are two major causes of pollution – which, in LA at least, caused a horrible brown haze that blanketed the valley and persisted throughout the year. By introducing catalytic converters into the heavy exhaust pipes, Yamaha sought to burn off some of the excess fuel ejected by the cylinders. The converters required an additional air bleed to aid in burning, which is some of the additional exhaust tubing (and reason why expansion chambers are the #1 performance mod made to these bikes). In California there is the added fun of the evaporative canister, which aims to capture any escaping fuel vapors. This is why CA bikes have a veritable spaghetti bowl of rubber tubing out of the tank. This was a lot of work for Yamaha, and the complexity meant that CA was a one year only bike.

From the seller:
Here is your chance to own one of the cleanest, unrestored Yamaha RZ 350s out there.

The Good:
– Darn near showroom new
– 11,000 miles, but you would believe me if I said 3,000 miles
– Body work (9.5/10)
– Has never been repainted
– Frame paint is close to mint
– Never been dropped
– Bolt plating looks factory new
– Forks look new
– Wheels look new
– Stock pipes are mint, no scrapes or scratches
– No rust in the gas tank
– All original decals, even on the gas tank and gas cap
– California RZ so it has the extra smog canister
– Motor has never been out of the bike
– Comes with its original tool kit
– Still has the rubber headlight gasket
– On original top end
– Runs fantastically

More from the seller:
The Bad:
– Bit of wear on the handlebars from tie downs and the key on the ring
– A little paint coming off the right hand brake caliper and brake master
– Rubber piece that goes around the fairing is kind of dry and needs some glue

The Neutral:
– The owner before me had cleared the side covers, front fender, and fairing years ago because he wanted it to match the tank better

More from the seller:
Please look at the pictures to see how clean this bike really is. I included a photo with the fairing swung down so you can see how clean it is underneath. I know there are cheaper RZs out there, but they aren’t as clean or original as this one.

So there you have it. What was likely the least desirable RZ when new due to the additional emissions equipment has turned into a time capsule and an ultra rare offering today. This bike looks far, far better than a 36 year old motorcycle should, especially when you consider some of the more, um, well-used examples seen on these pages recently. The price reflects the condition and originality, with an auction already above $8k (reserve not met) and a Buy It Now of $16,500. It will be interesting to see how high the bidding goes on this California special. You can check out all of the details here. Good Luck!!

Featured Listing: All Original 1990 Yamaha TZR 250 SP

Location: Chagrin Falls, Ohio
Mileage: 17,540km/10,898m
Price: $16,000
Contact: gregory.zydyk@gmail.com

Straight out of a private collection is this amazing 1990 TZR 250 3MA. 1 of 500 produced solely for the JDM in it’s original state. No paint work, OEM body panels, original windscreen, original turn signals and ready to roll (see video below).

In 1990 Yamaha threw every available option at the TZR SP. It came from the factory with upside down forks, braced swing arm, the latest YPVS offering and a dry clutch. It is very close to the full on race version TZR 250W. If you’re not familiar with Yamaha’s reverse cylinder design- the carburetors face the front wheel and the exhaust exits on the rear of the cylinder which is why Yamaha designed a true under tail exit exhaust for the ultimate Racer Boy look!

The seller has gone above and beyond the call of duty to accurately describe their machine with hi-res photos. Please take your time- browse through them all and enjoy how well this 3MA has been preserved. I did some research today and poured over the RSBFS.com archives where I could only find 1 other 1990 3MA ever listed on our site. So, based on our 14 year history- you are looking at a truly rare machine.



I hope you enjoyed that video as much as I did. There’s nothing quite like a 2 stroke buzzing down the road at 10k rpm and hearing the rattle of the dry clutch when slowing down- especially when you can do it without worry. That’s right, this TZR 250 is titled, tagged and completely legal under the 25 year old rule. This is a no hassle 2-stroke purchase.

Is this the one you’ve been waiting for? Will you ride it or put it on display?

If you’re interested- please contact Greg at gregory.zydyk@gmail.com

Decisions Decisions Decisions: 3 different Yamaha RZ350s

In the topsy-turvy world of collecting, there are often times when very little that is interesting is actually available. Then there are times when everything is available at once. You just cannot predict what will become available and here at RSBFS we do what we can to bring you the best we can find. And just like earlier in the year when Ducati 851 models were springing up like weeds, there are other bikes that appear in numbers – such as today’s example of three different red/white RZ350s. Best known as the last officially imported two stroke into all 50 states of the US, the parallel twin successor to the late RD series offered liquid cooling and introduced the concept of an exhaust power valve. While none of these nearly 40 year old bikes will be first in line for an indoor parking spot at the Barber Museum, they still represent a desired milestone machine worth collecting. Let’s look at our contestants! In no particular order:


Bike #1 – 1984 Yamaha RZ350 – starting bid $6k

From the seller:
Beautiful 1984 Yamaha RZ350. Have not seen many of these around on here or locally.
Early build date of 1/1984.
Matching Engine and Frame numbers: 003191 (shown in photos).
7,750 original miles.
2-stroke, liquid cooled, very fun and unique sounding bikes.

Bike runs and drives as it should – carburetors recently cleaned, general maintenance performed.
Bike is mostly original, however it does have aftermarket pipes, air filters, rear directionals (oem appearance), mirrors.
The windshield does have a few minor scratches, and there is also a scratch near the fuel shutoff (see photo).
The tank had minor repair underneath as it had a small pinhole leak. The inside was sealed with Tank Kreem fuel tank liner.
The bike is not 100% perfect showroom condition, but it is close, and in overall great shape. The bike was in dry storage for 25 years.

Located in Maine, this particular RZ has traveled fewer than 8,000 miles according to the clocks. There is the usual form of usage and neglect apparent, although the seller has done a good job of cleaning up the bike. The photos show a bit of corrosion, and some of the expected mods – namely the replacement of the heavy and performance-robbing catalytic converter pipes in favor of proper expansion chambers. If done correctly in conjunction with airbox and jetting changes, this is the #1 performance mod to really wake up the RZ with no harm in longevity. For a museum collector this is a destructive mod that kills the value, but for a rider-quality example the rideability gain is a definite benefit. The seller claims it was in storage for 25 years, and no maintenance records are listed. Opening bid is $6,000 – which may sound like big money if you remember when you could snag a project bike for less than half of that, but those days are long gone my friend. The best part of this auction is that it has no reserve. Check out the details on this one here.


Bike #2 – 1984 Yamaha RZ350 – starting bid $5k

From the seller:
Running & Currently Registered, fires right up whenever I get a chance to use it. Sounds & shifts as it should.
– The motorcycle has 23,000 miles on it
– I bought this bike a few years ago planning on doing a cosmetic restoration. I’m no mechanic but the bike does not need anything major.
– The past owner had recently gone through the motor and it runs strong, has Factory Pipe Products aftermarket exhaust (Expansion Chambers) and is re-jetted for the exhaust system.
– The past owner also put on the current gas tank (dented a shown in pictures) because the original tank had rusted/leaked as so many RZ gas tanks did.
– I have some spare parts that I have collect that will go with the bike including a set of rear turn signals (current right rear is taped).
– Comes with a Yamaha Service Manual

Continuing our New England romp, this second RZ350 lives in Connecticut and has traveled a credible 23,000 miles. By the pictures one can conjure up a story of hard use, which is not uncommon with the model. Like the first bike, this one sports aftermarket exhaust chambers coupled with carb mods to maximize performance. Judging by the conditions shown in the photos, this is no museum bike. The tank tells a story of a bike being down – on both sides. The seller claims the tank was added later, which is plausible. Still, the non-stock side cover on the right speaks to potential damage replacement. The cylinder block is not painted, which could mean replacement or modification (i.e. bore and/or ported). With luck, the previous owner replaced crank seals during the rebuild process. A bit of a mystery, this RZ has a starting bid of $5k and no reserve. Check out all of the details here.


Bike #3 – 1985 Yamaha RZ350 – starting bid $7999

From the seller:
This 1985 Yamaha RZ350 is an original. The owner has had it for 1 year. The vehicle runs great and is mainly used for weekend rides.

This bike runs beautifully and has the smoothest shifting transmission I have ever seen on a Yamaha. Clutch is fairly new. Has some cosmetic defects but nothing major for an almost 40 year old bike. All gauges work as they should as well as instrument lights. Turn signals have been removed. Oil injection system works correctly. Bike maintains temperature as it should. You would be hard pressed to find a 1985 RZ350 bike that is mechanically better than this one.

Of the 3 bikes shown, this 1985 model is the most confusing. Early 1985 models had the red/white scheme that mimicked the black/yellow. There was a late 1985 California model that shared the earlier paint scheme and shipped with gold wheels, but all 1985 models had the Kenny Roberts signature on the fairing. Given the cosmetic condition of this one, it is likely that the fairing was replaced along the line (the tank shows evidence of a handlebar hit, scuffed cases, etc). The MRA marking on the cylinder block is another mystery – as best guess would indicate the Motorcycle Racing Association out of Colorado. But other than the exhaust tips, I don’t see any safety wire. I also don’t see a side stand. The stock pipes have been swapped out for expansion chambers, but I am not able to make out the brand. Showing 34,700 miles on the clocks, this looks to be a survivor with a hard past. Opening bid is $7,999. Check out all of the details here.


So which would you chose? Bachelor/Bachelorette #1, #2, or #3? The smart money says to get into the RZ game sooner rather than later, as the overall model series continues to gain in value with each passing year. And if you are looking for a pristine example, you already know these are not it. However a museum example will be asking more than double of this lot – which is a lot. Amidst this trio, I would first consider what my goals would be for the bike (i.e. realistically, a presentable rider). From there, I would look at each bike critically, searching for originality and completeness. If I was spending my dollars, I would put aside a few bucks as any of these three would require a leak-down test to check for compromised seals, as well as a contingent for general maintenance. But if I had to choose from those listed here, I’d likely chose them in order of presentation, even though Bike #2 is initially offered at a lower price. Simply put, Bachelor/Bachelorette #1 appears closest to stock, has the fewest miles and the least amount of overall damage. It will be interesting to follow these auctions to see where they end up. What are your thoughts? Is the RZ market one you might like to get into? Let us know in the comments!

Big, Beautiful, and Body Positive- I’d ride it!
Even though Guzzi describes it as a “sport bike” this, 450#, shaft driven machine pales in comparison to today’s 200hp rockets, but it does have a certain mystique about it. I bet with a set of pipes the 992cc V2 would belt out a musical note worthy of the top spot on Mikes Mix-Tape. The reach from the seat to the clip-ons looks to be a bit long- can anyone confirm this?

Simply a work of Hyper Bike Art. The Italians know what I like and continue to build some of the most eye pleasing machines- I could sit and look at this one All. Day. Long.

Power is from a Ducati 992cc SOHC L-twin paired with a six-speed transmission, and the bike is finished in Red/white with carbon fiber fenders and engine covers.

Additional features include Brembo radial front disc brakes with wave rotors, Zard mufflers, a steering damper, an inverted Marzocchi fork, and seating for two.

 
 


1989 Honda Hawk in Grey For Sale on Craigslist!

I had one of these gems on last weeks B-O-B’s post and as long as I keep finding them you’re going to keep seeing them 🙂
Super cool bikes that never gained much traction as a street machine, but they have plenty of cult following on the track. Back in the day, I had the opportunity to purchase one of these, but at the time I was all in on FZR400’s. Much older and wiser now, I kick myself for not buying it when I had the chance.

Rides great no funny noises or smells, no overheating problems, battery is new , good chain & sprockets, good brakes, good tires, original paint, no accidents, just in great shape, no oil leaks it’s a Honda.

It’s a Honda- Preach it Brother!

 
 


Capirossi Ducati Monster on the cheap!

Nothing too crazy here other than some snazzy decals. However, $4,000 for a 2,000 mile Ducati seems like a pretty good deal to me, but apparently, I’m an outlier because this one has been sitting on CL for a while.

Showroom condition on this Capirossi Monster. Only 65 of these were shipped to the USA.

 
 


1990 Honda CB-1 For Sale on Craigslist!

Another small Honda that didn’t garner too much attention when it was released, but I have to tell you- these are some neat little bikes. This 400cc inline four has gear driven cams and a 13,500 screaming red line. You don’t see these very often and when you do, they’re usually all jacked up with nasty paint, bumps and bruises. This one “appears” to be pretty nice and would make a great grocery getter or commuter.
What do you all think about these?

1972 Laverda 750 SF1 – Italian Cafe Racer For Sale on Craigslist!

These older “Cafe Racer” machines always make me smile and while it would be a bad move on my part; if I owned this I’d wear a leather helmet and smoke goggles while riding it. You know- for the nostalgic kool factor.
