No problem, it just happens that I have been looking @ RC30's for the past 12 years, ever since I got my '86 VFR750 in 93.

Most RC30's on the market that are more or less original ( maybe few mods) for about $8000- $13000 or former raced versions or modded with HRC and premium performance enhancements will run about $10000 to $ ??? mid 20's ?
One of the premium exotic modifications are those made by Honda Guru
Thorsten Durbahn.
Check out his web site. I have been looking @ his work for the past 5 years.
This guy is simply amazing!!!

Hey Ben, I have a friend in Orlando that crashed his RC and made bank off the insurance over what he had in it. This was around seven years ago.

Let me know if you want detail on this one.

Jim

Hey Bigal-f3:

RC30’s were the evolution of Honda’s racing philosophy. It started with the interceptor vf series, then the vfr, then the rc30, rc45. Both the rc30 and 45 were the top of the heap. I have always loved Japanese bikes and found it interesting that these bikes captured the sprit of some of the smaller manufacturing companies, like ducati or bimota. Honda the giant produced a motorcycle that from engineering beginning became something with soul and sprit.

Even today they just are so hot to look at; the rc30 is a timeless beauty. As vintage motorcycles go this is the one that I would want to own. The really old stuff has nothing that would make me say “cool,” and no racing history that I would have seen. I have seen the rc30 in action with some of racings greats. The rc30 can still rip it up with the most modern of motorcycles. They also sound like no other bike, pure mechanical music; the only other bike that makes music like this is the Brittin v1000.

As a school project the only choice I had was to research and report on my dream bike. I am selling my fantastic 2003 gsxr750, but I would keep an rc30 for the rest of my life.

Good enough?

Ben

I always thought V4's were the trickness, and admired Honda's dedication to them. And yes, they had the single side swing arm long before Ducati's 916 came out.

I have an '87 VFR 700

I talked to my buddy about is RC30. It was crashed about 4 years ago. The insurance had it listed as a VFR and they were only going to give him that much for it. He said no no THIS is what it is. He got a Cycle Trader that had three listings, and as luck would have it, the cheapest was 15K and change while the most expensive was 22K for one that was STILL IN THE CRATE (yes after ten years).

So the insurance paid him $16,500 while he had paid only $8000 for the bone stock bike. (Bought used from a dentist)
