Harley-Davidson VR1000 Superbike sells on eBay

2/11/2008 3:58:45 PM



When was the last time you saw a Harley-Davidson VR1000 for sale? We couldn’t remember either, and that’s why we thought our readers might find this interesting.

We bumped into this unusual bike on eBay, that great black hole of free time and money we can’t seem to stay away from. A total of 36 bids were cast, and in the end, some lucky soul spent $60,100 to own #38 of just 50 VR1000s made to homologate the model for AMA Supberbike racing. With only 30 street miles, the bike is 100-percent stock (except for the battery) and may be as close to perfect as you’ll find, despite “an abrasion to the left side of the fairing caused by something falling against it in the trailer and then rubbing.” The owner goes on to mention how this would be a simple fix for a good painter as it’s on a black-painted part of the fairing, which makes the paint easy to match.  Though is not technically road legal, it’s still an interesting and rare piece of racing history.


As long as it’s still on eBay, check it out here.
