Weekend Wrap-Up: Posts from GermanCarsForSaleBlog and RareSportBikesForSale

I must apologize for the delay, but I’m in Springfield, Missouri this week and the internet at the hotel isn’t stellar. In fact it sucks. And on top of that, I’ve been swamped at work, so there are fewer posts than there have been in previous weeks. I will work harder to make sure I’m better connected on the road in the future.

But without further ado, a summary of posts from other sites I blog on that I hope dancrouchblog.com readers will enjoy:

{update: Image thumbnails removed due to technical issues. I hate working from the road!!}

Thanks for reading at dancrouchblog.com and my other sites. Please let me know if there are vehicles or topics that you’d like to see addressed. Leave a comment!

More Gray Market Honda Goodness: RVF400 and CBR400RR

I am such a sucker for these 400cc gray market bikes! Good thing those home equity loan letters no longer overflow from the mailbox!!

Here’s a 1994 Honda RVF400 that’s been for sale on the Bay Area Riders Forum (BARF – clever) for some time. But according to his latest post, he might be willing to deal (Update: He’s dropped the price to $6500! This really does sound like a steal!):

And here’s a 1994 Honda CBR400RR, aka the Baby Blade, on Craigslist San Francisco (do rare bikes just grow on trees down there??):

1994 Honda CBR400RR Titled Gray MarketHonda CBR400RR Baby Blade for sale

CBR400rr JDM (Japanese Domestic Market) bike with original Jap Title and California Street title current tags and insurance of course.
The bike is a 9 out of 10 mechanically. Fresh oil (always), recent carb tune and sync, plugs etc… Good brakes, suspension, tires are safe and legal but ready. Stored indoors on Battery Tender but it’s always a good idea to replace your battery every 2 years anyway.
It’s a great bike, fast and controllable, low to the ground so it’s a smaller rider’s dream that can seldom be found for sale in this country; especially in street-legal form.
It’s my girlfriend’s street-ride. She has ridden it on the occasional track day too. WOW, what an incredible little machine!
Has about 12k on it.

Pretty low miles and the bodywork looks original. For $4900, this looks like a total steal with the California title!
