2003 Aprilia RSV 1000 Mille R Nori Haga #124 Of 300

This is a one owner Haga replica with only 362 miles!  Located in Fowlerville, Michigan is a 2003 Aprilia RSV Mille R Nori Haga replica.  This one has been posted for a couple days but I was waiting for the seller to post pictures to share it with you all.  Only 300 of these were produced worldwide with 60 coming to America.  These replicas came with not only the WSB Haga replica scheme but also:  Blue Ergal tripple clamp with Haga’s signature, production number, and WSB text, Akrapovic titanium exhaust with SS collectors and EPROM map, ten additional hp, 6.6lb weight loss (with Akrapovic system fitted) and all the standard features of the Mille R variant.  This bike comes with the standard exhaust and the Akrapovic system.  The seller doesn’t state much other than the bike is in flawless condition and has always been kept in a heated garage.  The pictures seem to easily agree with this claim.  The asking price appears to be all of $16,500.  If this Haga replica has you jonesing, see the bike on the ApriliaForum.com here.

1992 Ducati Fast By Ferracci 851 Custom Superbike

1992 Ducati Superbike 851 Custom for sale on ebay.

You need to read the full ad to understand what this bike is.  Located in Tucson, Arizona is a 1992 Ducati 851.  Now, the frame defines what make & model a bike is.  The Arizona title and registration of this bike states that it is a Ducati 851 however, it is a complete custom bike that has been pieced together from some choice bits.  The frame is supposedly a Superbike race frame obtained from Fast By Ferracci with a long dead 851s VIN stamped on it.  The engine is from a 2001 996.  It has a Ducati Corse fully adjustable shock linkage, a Ducati Corse aluminum fuel tank, custom made F1 two into one exhaust, Ohlins rear shock, 17″ Marchesini five spokes, Showa Gold Nitrade forks, Brembo four-pots, Corbin seat and numerous carbon bits.

It will be interesting to see what this bike will sell for, at this point it’s very hard to value.  There are numerous custom 851s but, this one does have some–very possibly legitimate–Corse items; specifically, a titled Superbike  frame.  What do you think this bike is worth?  Is it worth more than a stock bike as it has some very rare bits bolted on or, will it sell for about the same?  Custom bikes are very hard to value because:  If this were a Fast By Ferracci Superbike race bike, determine a value based on that, and if this was a bone stock 851 we could easily determine a value.

One thing I have no doubt about is that the buyer of this bike needs these parts history verified and documented prior to sale.  If a World Superbike frame is what you’re paying for, it needs to be proven.  If this bike seems interesting, and it should, .

2006 Yamaha R1 Limited Edition–Still in the crate

Again, I know R1s aren’t rare but, the LEs are and this one is still in the crate.  Located in Cedar Hills, Oregon is a 2006 Yamaha R1 Limited Edition in unused condition.  To quote the seller:

I have a 2006 Yamaha YZF-R1 Limited Edition for sale. This is one of only 500 ever produced, and still in the original crate at my warehouse. It’s in pristine condition, has never turned a wheel except maybe after it rolled off the assembly line and into it’s shipping container.  This bike sold for $18,000 new, and I purchased it primarily as a collector’s item never intending to use it. A nice display piece for sure, but would be great for weekend rides, or track days for someone who wants one of the best all time sportbikes, unmatched for it’s speed, powerful engine and superb handling.  The bike is still in the crate, but I will be happy to assemble and service it for the new owner. I am a career Honda, Yamaha, Kawasaki, and Suzuki tech.  A factory service manual, owner’s manual, and Limited Edition R1 tool kit will be included with purchase.

The asking price is $12,995.  So, if you missed the Limited Editions around the first time or you’re a very serious collector, this might be the bike for you.  Sorry, no photos.  See the Craigslist ad here.
