Exclamation $10k RC51

At least it was at this time, >40 bids, ending soon. (not mine)

Ebay link
Honda RC51 | eBay

Edit: still hasn't met reserve. Wow, I'm wondering what the owner thinks a reasonable price is for it.

Very nice example!

In my opinion that particular bike in that condition with those upgrades is worth more than the $10,000 asking price

low mi RC

He spent all that money on it, didn't upgrade the rear shock and hardly road it - one has to wonder why. That Akra looks just like mine and the header is stainless on mine, I suspect his is too. It's all Ti and carbon mid-pipes back.

Wow. Cool. Small world. Hope this thread contributed. Either way, congratulate him for us. It looks like a great specimen.

Any plans?

"SERIOUS INQUIRIES ONLY, THIS IS QUITE POSSIBLY THE LOWEST MILEAGE RC51 IN THE WORLD...FOR SURE FOR SALE."

Although not for sale, my 2000 still sits less than 900 miles. Challenge accepted.

That is a really nice bike though...

Most likely it will be restored to 100% showroom condition and put on display

awesome. nice that it went to a good home, and very fitting considering the amount of work that Kyle and Co (that means you Mike) put into development, testing, and production of parts for it.

i'm sure it'll be right at home in the Kyle shop
