Still up for sale 2005 RC51 22,000kms $5500

The person who offered me a price for the bike backed out; therefore, the bike is still available. I will deliver the bike as far as New York state and the New England States for a fee cheaper than shipping.

Sadly, I need to sell my beloved pig. I've been doing a lot of long distance rides lately and my body just can't take the pain anymore. The bike is located in New Brunswick Canada.

The RC is mint and has never let me down. Has been meticulously cared for as it was washed and waxed after every ride, given the highest quality fluids i.e. Motul 300V motor oil, and has been kept in a garage when not in use. The tires have a ton of life left in them (Dunlop RoadSmart III) and new battery in 2019. I've sold some aftermarket items, so bike is mostly stock; however, there are some mods worth mentioning:

22,000 Kilometers, not miles.
Elka Front springs and valves (Installed By John Sharrard at Accelerated Technologies in Ontario, Canada).
Stomp Grip.
520 chain conversion with new chain and rear sprocket. The stock chain and sprockets are on the bike currently.
Healtech speedo healer.
Steel braided brake lines front and rear.
Fender eliminator (CF).
Puig double bubble wind screen.
Proton Flashers.
BST CF front wheel (Didn't have the cash for the rear wheel).
Owners manual, rear seat and cowl cover, gel grips, and a couple of smaller things.

Thanks for looking! If you need more info, please send me a PM.

Cheers

Jay

Damn Penn,

Wish that Beauty was for sale, when I bought my '02 two years ago. I paid the exact same price for mine. So, did you sell the Sato's, and steering dampener?

2005 750 Katana
2000 KX-500
1984 VT500 Ascot
1977 RD-400

Nice Old Harley you got there! Mind if I kick it over?

Hey Russ,

I sold the Sato's and the damper. I left the the rest of the parts with the bike, as I couldn't be bothered to sell those separately.

Cheers

I was going to say, with the Sato's and steering dampener, that bike wouldn't leave my garage for less than $7500. Not sure how the market is there in Canada, but here in California, I would think your bike would fetch $6500, as is right now. Just my opinion, and you know what they say about those!

The market in Canada is much different than in the US. There are not a lot of people willing to pay top dollar for a unique machine like the RC. Most, not all, will think it's just an old sportbike and not worth it's weight.
