1989 Honda VFR750R RC30 For Sale-

1989 Honda VFR750R RC30 For Sale

Location: Glen Mills, PA
Mileage: 2,857
Price: $16,990.00 with reserve in place

There’s been some rumblings over on the RSBFS.com Facebook page that we are partial to small cc rare sport bikes, but I have to disagree. Okay, so Ian and I have a little lean towards 2 strokes, but the other guys… well, I think they just like bikes and who’s to argue about the latest forward from a RSBFS.com viewer? Not me bro!

I know I recently traded in my homologation Superbike for a NSR, but that doesn’t change where my heart truly lies so with out any more idle chatter from me-

I’m guessing this one is probably a Canadian model that has been well preserved.

It still excites me that RC’s demand so much respect in the market place. They come up for sale more often than their younger brother, the RC45, and in general are more sought after. From what I’ve been told it’s the pearly white paint on the hand laid fiberglass that draws collectors to it. Sort of like me to a cold beer- I’m naturally drawn to it and can’t help myself once I get it in my sight 🙂

These low mileage ones are starting to get as rare as hens teeth so if you have an extra $20k (ish) burning a hole in your pocket I suggest you jump over and get in on the action.

You can to see more pics and to place your bid. Good Luck!

Cheers!

1990 Honda RC30 VFR750R #58 For Sale!

1990 Honda RC30 VFR750R #58 For Sale.

Location: Tempe, AZ
Mileage: 3,849
Price: $20,000.00 with no reserve

Nothing will brighten your day more than finding a low mileage RC30 while snooping around eBay on a rainy Saturday morning. It looks like this one is going to bring smiles to the faces of other RC30 owners because with a mere 173 views (at time of writing this) there were 16 bids with 9 days and 12 hours left. The smiles will come because this one will help raise the ‘market value threshold’ for the hoarders… er… collectors.


Pretty darned nice if I do say so myself. ‘Clean’ was the first thing that I noticed about this particular machine. Obviously, the owner has taken very good care of #58 and it shows in the high quality photos. They also have disclosed a few ‘imperfections’, but I can only find 1 of them while viewing the photos.

At first read I was a bit surprised at how fast this one jumped up, but then after admiring it several more times my opinion was put in check. Read on and then we can debate it in the RSBFS.com discussion section.

Second owner, originally from Seattle dealership;

-Not raced or modified;
-3,849 miles (most from a single trip by wife from Phoenix to Northern California);
-Parked last 11 years in office and living room. Bike has been taken out and started every spring and fall;
-Oil changed within last year. Other fluids (brake, coolant) within last 2 years
-Original tires
-Original brake pads have lots of life left
-New battery
-Rear stand included
-Owner’s manual and toolkit

Professional repairs from storage damage to tank and rear cowl, mirror and caliper;
– Tank – New decals and clear coat
– Rear Cowl – 4″ fiberglass repair, red paint and clear coat
– New right mirror
– Minor scratches on left front caliper (see photo)

I can certainly appreciate how clean it is and wouldn’t expect much less from a machine of this caliber with such low miles. As I mentioned, this one has really grown on me and I now understand why it has better than average activity on it. I never claimed to be quick so hold the comments please :).

The original tires, original brake pads, toolkit, all the stickers are in place, no modifications, near perfect windscreen and the overall clean condition really make this one special in my mind and no, I didn’t forget about the respray of a few parts. The repair work looks to be excellent and well done and if you can’t live with a few ‘picks’ then check out our featured ad that has a set of brand new OEM RC30 bodywork listed for sale which is simply amazing in itself.

Yes, I imported every picture for your viewing pleasure. I’m going to sit back and watch how this one unfolds, but one thing is for sure- this one will sell and should fit nicely in any collection. Now where is the RSBFS.com ‘WANT’ button?

WANT!!!!

Interested in placing a bid?

Let me just say that I love my wife and would do anything for her, but it would be a cold day in hell before I let her ride my perfect, collectable machine on a 3,000 mile journey! (psst, don’t tell her I said that)

Cheers!

1990 Honda RC30 VFR750R

1990 Honda RC30 VFR750R

Location: LA, CA
Price: 22,000
Mileage: Low(!)

It never ceases to amaze me how owners of such rare bikes don’t take the time or put little, if any, effort in to selling them. Point in case is today’s CL find.

Have a look:

Low mileage CA bike, one owner, ready to ride. Low serial number.

That’s it folks! You want to buy it?

You can make contact here.

Oh but wait.. there’s another one for sale in San Francisco with no pictures, but the seller does offer a phone number. I don’t think it’s the same one, but it sounds very similar in specs.

Cheers!
