Re: RC30 For sale on Ebay

That isn't your every day RC30. First of all it's a 90 (very few made in the last year of production), secondly, the forks, brakes and wheels represent over 5K before you get to the HRC carbs (2300.00), radiators (1500.00), ignition etc. (3500.00). The only thing I don't understand is blowing the whole SS Swingarm with dual exhausts. I saw a few of these in the early 90's and they certainly didn't help the power, just screwed up the quick change on the rear wheel. All in all a nice example, but with all of the trick equipment, it's gotta be raced, and who wants to race a one of a kind, irreplacable legend? OK, if you can afford to buy it, you have to be able to afford to crash it, but last time I checked, Brian Uchida said there weren't anymore ignitions, carbs or radiators available for the RC30 . . .

and your girlfriend too.

Re: RC30 For sale on Ebay

Re: RC30 For sale on Ebay

Yamaha had the OW-01, a very limited edition model during the time of the RC30's and the R7 recently. Kawasaki had the ZXR-750 which was the factory version of the ZX7R.

and your girlfriend too.

It is in fact a street bike. Back in the late 80's the homologation rules required that everything start out as a complete street bike. Mine took about 4 hours to tear down and put the racing harness, HRC bodywork etc. on to make it a track bike. After it was broken in, we got the rads, carbs, ignition, pistons, cams, 17' wheels, exhaust etc.

A wonderful piece, too bad it didn't belong to me . . .

and your girlfriend too.

Re: Beyon the RC30 For sale on Ebay

There's a guy who owned Kilmarnock motor cycles (KMC) who lives in West Kilbride area, who owns two EX japanese honda team racing RC30's. One was raced and has all the Rothmans decal the other, a spare, is un decalled, both are BETTER than new as he totally rebuilt them using better quality replacements. I guess it would take 40k to price the decalled model of him and 25k for the other machine, He also has lots of RC 30 top of the range spares. He raced in 70's Isle of man TT and finished in the top 10 on non factory machines regularly, his nickname was flying freddy
