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 It was superseded in 2010 by the NSF250R which was largely the same save for the 250cc four stroke engine and beefier swing arm.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!!

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!

Freaky Friday Bag-O-Bikes feat. Bimota, Guzzi and an AMAZING RG500!

Moto Guzzi Daytona For Sale on Craigslist!

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?

1993 Moto Guzzi Daytona 1000
Fully stock.
Beautiful bike.
Always garage kept.
Biposto version (very rare)
#2 of only 250 that were imported into the US — own a piece of motorcycle history.

 
 


2007 Bimota DB6 Delirio For Sale on Craigslist!

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.

01 of 23 built in the world.
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?

1990 Honda CB-1, 6 speed, 25,500 miles. Rare bike: 400cc inline four with gear driven cams, revs to 13.5k RPM. 3rd owner (all were in Bay Area), parked in garages its whole life. Under 300 miles on Pirelli Sport Demon tires. Original paint and seat.

 
 


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.

Sensational Bike, Very Low Original Miles … Rare, Cool and Fun to Ride

 
 


1985 Suzuki RG500 Gamma w/ only 864 miles- For Sale on Craigslist!

1994 Yamaha TZR250 SPR 3XV For Sale!

1995 Yamaha TZR250 SPR 3XV For Sale on eBay!

The TZR250 SPR was the culmination of all things before it. The SPR’s have braced black frames, triple 32mm power valves (to skirt the regulations of the day) that consisted of both guillotine and cotton reel designs. The beauty of this design was even though Yamaha downsized the the valves from 36mm to 32mm they were still able to keep the horsepower at 40. That’s not a lot of HP by today’s 4 strokes power output, but it was plenty for Yamaha to eventually win the Suzuka 4 hour endurance race with the SPR.

Here’s what the eBay listing has to say.

Absolutely fantastic example of the last of the 2stroke 250cc Yamaha super sport bikes! Incredibly rare bike that was never sold in the US market during production. Powered by the proven single-axis crank 90-degree V-twin engine that adopted “Triple YPVS” for finely tuned exhaust control, a new type of carburetor (during the 90’s) and a cassette-type wide-ratio transmission. This bike has been on display in a high-end collection for about a year and a half and is ready for a new owner. The bike has recently been started and run for the first time since it was imported

Here are some key features of this bike:

-Fantastic visual condition for a bike that is nearly 30 years old
-Starts easily, and runs great
-Clean PA title! Very rare for this bike to have a US title.
-Fuel tank is spotless
-All lights and horn work properly
-New battery
-Temp gauge or sensor may need to be addressed as the needle did not move during my test ride.
-Only 9513 KM = 5911 Miles
-Tons of tread left on the Rosso II tires
-Minor scuffs on each fairing, small paint repair on edge of front fender and one paint blemish on frame near swingarm pivot

I don’t disagree with the sellers evaluation and description of their machine. I would like to point out that all of my research, friends and GoDuckYou translator tells me SPR’s weren’t produced until 1995. Not that it matters, because it really is a non-issue since SPR’s were never brought stateside. I am very pleased to see it’s titled and ready to roll, but should you pull the trigger on this one I recommend you tread lightly! Parts for these are scarce to non-existent.

I also wanted to mention that I think it’s worth every penny of the asking price because these are rare as rocking horse poop and this example is finer than frogs hair.

1/8th The Capacity, and Half The Strokes: 2009 Aprilia RS125

What is more lust worthy then some forbidden fruit?  Something that you have been told is bad, dirty or just flat out not safe?  Such is the life for small displacement two stroke bikes.  For the most part they have been banned in the US under the idea that they will raise sea levels, club baby seals and cause the rain to melt our homes.

While the rest of the world gets to enjoy these tiny wonders, the USA has been devoid of options for many years.  Many believe the Yamaha RD and RZ line from the 70s and 80s was the last offering for the road, and in many ways they are correct.  But what is almost as good as forbidden fruit?  How about a good story, and a shady loop hole?

From the Seller’s CraigsList add (Hartford, CT):

2009 Aprilia RS125
Titled and registered in CT.
280 lb 2 stroke 125cc street bike.
6 speed manual transmission.
Oil injection
Runs great! Lots of fun to ride!

Stock bike with OEM turn signals, wiring harness, plate mount.
Very rare bike. 1/160 imported to the U.S. You don’t find them registered and titled very often.

No rides without money in hand. No trades.

In 2009 Aprilia finally brought their Rotax powered RS125 to the USA as a “for off road use only”.  The idea is that they wanted to revive the production race bike market.  The funny thing was the bikes came with lights, blinkers and a plate mount.  Clearly they knew some owners were going to take advantage of certain states loose DMV laws and put these bike on the road.

The example here can be seen in a few picture out on the public roads, if not in much detail.  Apparently this bike has covered about 2400 miles.  The $8900 asking price is well above the original MSRP, but it is hard to put a price on this much fun.  The street title will a large part of the value for buyers in some states.

Past Due: 1998 Bimota VDue

Better than a pension! That is the headline that screams from the ad for this 2 owner, 1,500 mile wonder. And it is a wonder. Part mythical beast and part utter genius, the VDue was the bike that turned Bimota from a kit bike maker and frame builder into a full-fledged motorcycle manufacturer. It also was the bike that utterly destroyed the company, caused the Italian government to step in, and sprung a cottage industry of tuners and parts mongers. This bike is the ultimate legend, largely for all the wrong reasons.

1998 Bimota VDue for sale on eBay

Let’s put the VDue in perspective. This is a 500cc v-twin GP racer for the street: that means Suzuki RGV250 / Aprilia RS250 size, weight and nimbleness with GSXR1100 power. Interested? So was the world. Throw in a solid decade of R&D to try to make a two stroke emissions friendly enough to past muster as a street bike and the GP dream takes a hard left at the end of pit lane. Bimota engineers developed a direct injection system for the VDue – an ingenious and ambitious solution – meant to cure the dirty elements of 2-stroke power and provide plausible fuel economy. Sadly, in the late 1990s the tech was not quite there and the resultant effort – while producing over 110 HP while it ran – was inconsistent, unreliable, and prone to failure. Of the 500 bikes proposed for the series, Bimota produced 340 – all which were recalled. This, coupled with the loss of a major sponsor in WSBK racing who owed them money, left the company in financial ruin. Today, Kawasaki has a majority investor stake in the company, which produces a single model (Tesi H2).

From the seller:
The very last of the legendary stink wheel generation before legislation finally killed off the two stroke engine! This incredible machine has earned its place in the hall of motorcycle frame for lots of reasons, not least of which is the styling which still looks fresh twenty years later, as well as all of the controversy and very Italian politics involved in the very limited production run. This means as you know that not very many were made and even fewer found their way to the UK, this makes them an incredible bike to own for exclusivity, the ultimate riding experience and how could you not agree that this would be a whole lot more enjoyable as an investment than a pension or ISA!!!

In a last gasp effort, Bimota reworked the VDue with Dell’Orto carbs and re-badged the bike as the “Evoluzione,” but in reality it was a step backwards in tech. Only 21 of these bikes made it out of the factory for road use. In the end, Piero Caronni (one of the Bimota engineers on the original VDue project) purchased the remaining bikes, all the spares he could get his hands on, and the rights to the VDue name. It could be said that most of these bikes that are running today are due to his fanatical efforts on this halo bike.

Today’s VDue is located in England – these marvelous machines were never officially imported into the US. There is no commentary as to what has been done, if it retains the original fuel injection (or, if swapped out to carbs, who did the work), etc. These are all questions that should likely be asked by a potential buyer. The bike looks new, as a 1,500 mile example should. By all accounts, a properly running VDue is a joy to ride, but be warned that between fuel consumption, high-end 2-stroke oil and frequent rebuilds these are not cheap to operate. But they are very, very rare, and very, very collectible. These were $30k when new, if you could find one. This one is listed in the UK for £24,999 – which nets out to about $34 large American greenbacks. Check out all of the details here and Good Luck!!

Whacky Wednesday Mixed Bag-O-Bikes!

Last night, I was kicking it and lounging around, sipping on a cold snack with some time to kill. The normal hot-bed of rare sport bike supply was a little slow so, I stretched my short legs and ventured out on the dark world wide web in search of some tasty eye candy for all our highly regarded followers. I have to admit, I didn’t have high expectations, but my dung luck would prove me wrong once again.

Grab your favorite sudsy beverage and feast your eyes on the gems I found.

1988 Honda Hawk NT650

Cool bikes! Narrow v-twin, low on power, but high on the cool factor with the single sided swing-arm. Bonus points if you can find a Two Brothers Kit 😉

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

1991 Honda NSR250

Super small machines! This is said to have less than 200 miles since a complete rebuild. Ask plenty of questions! Bonus- It has a Vermont plate! (fist pump)

1987 Suzuki RB50 Mini GSX-R!

My boy Mike E Mike is gonna love this one! I think it’s cool and smooth as a fresh jar of Skippy.
