I had the 91 CR500. It was my first bike. Crazy right? ;) It had solid suspension that I loved. Kicking that f'n thing over was not much fun though. I think I still have a hole in the bottom of my right foot. The XR650R that I had later on was not much better but neither had a hot start and both were probably jetted a bit fat.

Turbo R90S

Don't see this every day

http://www.ebay.com/itm/310832405727







Quote:
This auction is for 1 USED BMW R90S. Bike has had substantial modifications done to it. When bike was purchased it had sat in someones garage since 1993. Bike has been gone through pretty much from front to back with a few exceptions. Steering head bearings are a bit rough and could be replaced. The tires are also weather checked but bike is drivable. Bike has oversized valves on both intake and exhaust with over sized push rods. Dual plug heads, with electronic ignition module. Bike is also equipped with an American Turbo Pak kit vintage to the late 70's. Zienith carb with high low adjust, turbo is made by Rayjay. The blow off valve was rusted shut when purchased but has been re machined to kit specifications. Bike has had 80 miles put on it so it does run. All turbo components have been gone through. All painted turbo components have been blasted and re painted or wrapped. Side covers also have fresh paint and decals on them. BOV is adjustable. It will pull between 8-15psi of boost. Both top ends have been re sealed with oem parts, and both cylinders looked to be in excellent condition, with no ridges and virtually no wear. Various other rubber components also replaced. Master cylinders have also been re built with oem parts. This is an excellent bike that needs a good home. It is a one of a kind bike that you will not see on the road. Other goodies include: Brace swing arm, braced triple clamp, braced fender mount. Bike has a clear title. There are minor imperfections here and there as seen in the photos, but this bike is a strong runner and will take your breath away. Carb has also been re built since it was on the road last so the carb has not yet had gas flowed to it. Both petcocks have been gone through and there is also a fresh battery in it. If you know rare items than this bike is for you.

I wonder how good it runs with that Q-tip stuffed up its petcock.

That could be interesting or it could be

I did almost pick up the phone... the bike looks straight, complete, and in good shape - and most people think they're worth $2500-$3000 now.
They aren't rare....yet.

Every time one comes up on craiglist, I go looking for lighting coils, etc to see if Electrosport or Steahly still make them.

Yep...This would not be any fun unless you could ride wheelies thru green lights with a plate on back.

Aprilia RSX 450

Not to bad of a price, the mileage is stupid low. My guess is they got scared. Hell my Honda 450 scares me, and this one has even more HP



I have an 07 rxv 450, fuel injected 450cc Vtwin, this bike only has about 200 miles on it, mostly woods riding and is in great shape, has been meticulously maintained and is ready to ride.It has scuffs on bodywork and engine covers from light use. Bike is extremely fast, and not for beginner riders. Im selling this bike to get a 2 stroke motocross bike, so would be willing to consider trades for a clean 05 or newer, or possibly a fuel efficient car. Feel free to call with any questions
asking $3300 obo

Just make sure you budget a few thousand for a new engine. The '07's were plagued with a manufactures defect where the water jacket was machined too close to the cylinder wall and they self destructed usually within 1,000 miles. That issue alone (or rather the way they dealt with it read: completely failed to deal with it) is why Aprilia has pulled out of the US market with their dirt bike line.

Not a bad deal. If I didn't have two Guzzis already I would check it out.

Some racers once told me that the average life of the 07 motor was 15 hours. But it was a very fun 15 hours.

This was exactly my first bike. Found it browsing craigslist tonight. All that is missing is the Hawk sidecovers. Same year, color, and everything. Wow, that brings back memories. Over 20 years ago.
