Honda RC 172 tribute

I know I just recently posted this CR750 tribute, but this is really well executed as well. My default is to always give preference to mostly stock and original bikes for this site, but on the other hand, when they’re this well done why not?!

1974 Honda CB350 Four RC172 Tribute For Sale on eBay

Bidding is off to a slow start and hasn’t cracked $3k with 5 days remaining, reserve not met obviously.

dc

From the seller:

Wow selling with mixed emotions my RC 172 tribute bike. It has all the right pieces that are next to impossible to get now….covid and wait times! Started as a super clean 350/4.
Swarbrick hand formed exhausts, Holtzwork hand formed aluminum alloy tank, 4 shoe brake, tarrozzi rear sets, NOS switch gear and grips, proper high shoulder alloy rims, cleaned-up electrics, fresh top end, tuned-up and reliable and ready to ride. Too much to list! Buyer will get full build pics.

Additional information: Yes the bike has removable baffles. If you want that Haliwood wail at 10rpm you can have it!
Yes that is a custom aluminum alloy triple. It’s a work of art.
There is a custom spot for the shorai battery under the seat. You have easy access to the trickle charger wire.

Front vented brake is off of a (period correct) water buffalo. It stops this little bike beautifully. I love the progressive feel as you trail brake into corners.

More questions

The front brake is a 4LS from a Suzuki GT750 – depending upon condition they sell for $500-1000 USD.

Holtzwork alloy tank with Monza cap- 1050 GBP plus shipping/taxes

Front forks from a 70’s CB550- stronger and a perfect upgrade path

Yes you could go to pods instead of Velocity stacks. Carbs will need slight retune.

Yes the original front fender has been worked to be visually more similar to RC fender. You could take it a step further and remove the rolled edge.

Yes this bike would qualify as period correct for vintage road racing.

6k Mile 1975 Kawasaki H1

Here’s a largely original and complete, unrestored Kawasaki H1! There’s some patina but nothing too serious to enjoy this bike just like it is and restore it later. The best part is the reserve is already met with a current bid of $6,500. Just about 3 days remain and I’ll be curious to see where it sells.

1975 Kawasaki H1 for sale on eBay

from the seller:

INTRODUCTION:::

You are looking at a 1975 Kawasaki H1-F 500cc triple cylinder. This is an frame and engine matching all original unrestored example with only 6065miles on the speedometer. The motorcycle is in good running condition, cosmetically the bike is not perfect but it is complete and in nice shape for its age. But please feel free to read more about the specifics of this bike and look at the pictures for verifications, and feel free to ask any questions. International bidders are welcome to bid on this motorcycle but have to arrange shipping themselves…

MECHANICAL:::

The bike runs very well and fires up nicely even when cold; transmission sifts nice and smooth through all gears. We recently did a full service tune up on the bike, this included ultra sonically cleaning the carburetors and properly jetting them to stock factory specifications; all fluids were drained, brake fluid, two stroke oil, and transmission oil was all replaced, new drive chain, brake pads, spark plugs, cable adjustments and any other mechanical parts that needed to be replaced were changed so the bike is ready to ride reliably.

BODY:::

All of the body work is all original with the exception of the right side cover, which looks to be repainted. The tank is nice and clean on the inside, however the tank does has a dent on the right side near the back which can be seen in the pictures, but other than that all of the body parts are nice and straight with no major dents. All of the chrome parts do show some age but overall the chrome is in good shape with no major rust anywhere. For its age this bike is in good looking condition and is ready to ride.

From the seller’s description:

In 1970, Dick Mann catapulted Honda into the limelight with his historic Daytona 200 win on a Honda CR750. After his success, Honda offered dealerships approx 200 factory CR750 race kits replicating the victorious CR750. The $10,000 kits were very expensive at the time, roughly $60,000 today! Not many were sold and many were recalled and destroyed for safety reasons….Honda didn’t want people getting killed on their new CB750 model! This particular bike was made as a tribute to those rare factory CR kit racers. This bike was raced vintage class in Sweden at the famed Anderstorp raceway for many years, retired, and then shipped to the U.S. for its CR makeover. We wanted to keep the bike as period correct 1970’s as possible. The motorcycle came with the longer wheelbase 1975 CB750F frame (CB750F-1016329) and a 1971 K1 race motor (CB750E-1078205). The vintage black 4 into 4 Swarbrick exhaust, gas tank, and Lytron oil cooler/filter were sourced from a local collector. The CR oil tank was made by AHRMA 750 racer Dennis Weinhold, and the billet aluminum adjustable foot controls were made by AHRMA racer Jarred Halloway. The CR seat cowl, fairing mount & hardware were purchased from Mead Speed UK. Custom made aluminum CR gauge mount with Smiths 100 PSI oil gauge and 12k Spanish reproduction tachometer. The front end is a 1978 CB750 F2 with dual disc brakes, progressive springs, new brake lines, safety wired bolts, and fork seals. Rear shocks are adjustable OHLINS. Rear rim is an alloy Morad 18″ and the front rim is an alloy “high wall” Akront 18″. Both have Conti Road Attack CR 2 race tires. The rebuilt motor has 1.0mm over pistons and rings making displacement from 736cc to 761cc. Shaved engine cases with charging system and starter motor removed. Cylinders honed, valves lapped and bronze valve guides installed. Norris race cam installed (spec sheet dated 1978). New heavy duty primary cam chains, overhead cam chain, roller, and guide. New braided oil lines,31mm Keihin CR Special carbs, and a Dyna electronic ignition and coils. Performance clutch plates, and heavy duty clutch springs. 13T primary sprocket and 48T solid aluminum rear sprocket with an RK 530H heavy duty drive chain. Clip on handlebars and steering dampener. Lithium Ion battery with charger. New carb intake boots, thumb release gas cap, CB750 petcock, and master cylinder brake cap all period correct 1970’s. Unlike Mann’s sunrise orange bike we painted the gas tank, seat, fairing and striped front fender in vintage Honda livery red and silver colors. Yellow “flash” and white number plates are also painted on. Kick start or rear roller start. Starts, runs, sounds, shifts and stops great!! Here is a chance to own a classic piece of Honda race history! This beauty is AHRMA race ready or waiting to be posed in a collection looking like it just rolled off the track. I have a clear non-op California title in my name.

1982 Honda CX500T for sale in Ohio with only 8,300 miles!

$_57

The 80s were a revolutionary time. Technology was crashing the old school party and promised to make everything better. The Honda CX500 Turbo was supposed to lead this charge, featuring fuel injection, a digital dash and a turbocharger that nearly doubled the horsepower of the standard CX500. It promised all of the power of a literbike with the efficiency of a 500. While it didn’t quite live up to that promise, it was still a valiant effort by Honda. The CX500T was only produced for one year as Honda bumped the displacement up to 650cc the next year. It’s limited production, classic 80s styling and interesting history make it a favorite for collectors.

This one isn’t a museum piece, but appears to be a pretty clean starting point that could be the basis of a full restoration, or just a really cool vintage rider for the occasional Bike Night at your local hot spot. It’s sure to draw a crowd.

from the seller:

This is a beautiful example of a 1980 GS 1000 ST, well known as a Wes Cooley Replica.

I purchased this bike from the second owner a couple of years ago and have completed the following over the past couple of years:

– Bike was painted by Larry Pearson of Larry has painted many period bikes and his work is second to none. The lines and colors where done to original specification, with a show quality finish…..absolutely stunning.

– Brakes and calipers have all been rebuilt including brake lines.

– Handlebar controls replaced with NOS controls, as well as OEM grips.

– Seat replaced with replica cover.

– New tires.

-All new OEM cables.

– All new OEM electronics including: battery, stator, r&r and solenoid.

– NOS windscreen and trim.

-NOS stator cover w/emblem.

-NOS ingnition cover.

-NOS fuel tank cover.

– New chain and sprockets.

– New progressive springs and fork seals.

– New steering head bearings.

– NOS Yoshimura exhaust, ( I found this pipe in CA, a previous bike shop owner had tucked a few away when his shop closed in the late 80″s) I do not have the original exhaust.

I am sure I am forgetting many parts I have added, it became a hobby to seek out those hard to find parts!

Overall, this bike is in very nice condition. It is a joy to ride and I think it feels as good as it did when it was new. However, with that said, this is a 33 year old bike. Not perfect.

I had a lot of help from the guys and girls of the GSR http://www.thegsresources.com A great group of Suzuki enthusiasts willing to lend a helping hand on these aging bikes. Give them a visit!!

The bike is sold as is, where is. Shipping is the responsibility of the buyer. PayPal may be used for the $500 deposit which is due immediately following the auction. The balance is to be paid either in cash or bank check.

1981 Honda CBX With 1 Mile: Easy Restoration Project?

The good news: This CBX has nearly no miles! The not so good news: It has damage from other bikes falling on it. The CBX has a loyal following without a doubt and this reportedly zero mile example sure will find another home. The question is at what price. It’s hard to know from the pictures how tough it will be to get this bike into showroom/museum condition for the price. The current bid is $4550 reserve not met but the listing also wears a $10k buy-it-now. Leave your thoughts in the comments below.

1981 Honda CBX 1 Mile Project For Sale on eBay

from the seller:

This bike has been in my shed for well over a decade. I was going to get it going but I’ve moved on to other projects and it is just in the way now.

This bike has no miles on it. It does, however have some damage from being in storage where it had another bike fall over onto it causing it to fall into another bike.

You can see the windshield is cracked, the left mirror is broken, the front brake lever is broken, the glass is broken out of the headlight cover, the right grip is torn, the right lower faring is broken, the fuel tank has dents on both sides and both saddlebags are scratched or scuffed.

To my knowledge, this bike has never even been started.

The exhaust is in excellent shape as is the rest of the body work, engine components, wheels, gauges, bars, controls, seat, turn signals etc… If there are any questions please give me a call or message through ebay.
