Sounds like reserve is over $10000. Stainless lines, aftermarket silencers and flush front signals.

The fact that he says the bike is 100% original tells you he is not a knowledgeable collector, and perhaps just a seller/reseller. It should be obvious that the front signals, silencers, brake lines, and windscreen are not stock. The bike is missing the rear foot pegs and brackets. Solo seat cowl bolts are wrong. The rust on the foot peg bolts is interesting. It's safe to assume the seller does not have the protective cover for the upper silencer since the silencer isn't stock. Many people remove the cover, but if you're buying an NS400R you do want that cover. Red banjo bolts are ugly. Some information about the engine would be nice. It's frustrating when sellers are too thick to property orientate photos. A nice bike overall, but don't try to hype it up by saying everything is 100% and factory Honda, when it clearly isn't. I see it passing $10K easily if you get knowledgeable buyers. Current values for collector quality bikes is much higher. VIN # 356 is one of the highest I've seen for a Canadian spec NS400R.

....and if the seller expects to be taken seriously at least learn to rotate the damn pictures the right way up.

Hi, seller states he's buying one that's still in a crate that would be worth the big bucks!
It's good to know that we have very knowledgeable people on this site.
Cheers Ron

Even from a seemingly knowledgeable collector. An Ebay listing for a 1996 Repsol MC28 SE has more than the name out of sorts. Only ever a 1996 SP Repsol, 1 year 1000 made. This listing SOUNDS like the real deal but a lot of little mods make it hard to tell and even so they could all have been parts that were changed but highly unlikely. 2 things stand out. The SP had Anodized Blue fork adjusters and Magtek magnesium Wheels. Zooming in on the photos the bike wears SE fork adjusters and the brand of wheels is ASAHITEC, the standard version wheel. It does not say Magtek where the arrow is on the rear wheel it seems. SP decal on the seat is missing as well. Bidding is very strong at $13000 currently and it seems to be presented as the real deal. I think the seller has another stock looking Repsol MC28sp so it makes you wonder. The website RSBFS says he is an avid collector and all the 250's in the photo's show it so it doesn't make sense. You can check the paint code under the seat but the subframe can be swapped too. Only way to really know for sure is checking the S/N with Honda. They were produced randomly so no sequential S/N. RSBFS doesn't call it a real Repsol to be fair but the seller does in the Listing Title and elsewhere. I think in this case Buyer Beware, good chance it's an imitation!

Whiteknuckle801 is a dealer. We've had some interesting discussions at RSBFS regarding his inaccuracies when making bold claims. Anyone that is selling these rare bikes and knows nothing about them is not a collector, he an opportunist looking to cash in. I'm ok with that, but don't bullshit the initiated. I hope he runs out of bikes soon, just so I don't have to see any more of his Walt Disney art :smt078

Considering it is almost certainly a rebranded SE the listing is deceptive but offers him plausible deniability since he never claims it a REPSOL SP. Devious typo! He certainly knows what he is selling. :smt012

The guy is full of shit and invents facts to sell bikes. As we've said in the comments at RSBFS, buyer beware. A lot of his buyers will be disappointed when they find out what they really bought.

Did you see his comment about the fiberglass fairing? "Very nice finish and is prized in Japan for high quality". FFS....what a load of shite.

RSBFS featured listings are just a way for a seller to avoid being called out for hawking a questionable bike.

I have to question why anyone would dress up a true Repsol. Doesn't make sense. I remember this bike from a few years ago For Sale in Toronto and questioned it then also. It was from Florida and had a Club track day sticker on it as I recall. This SE has tons of aftermarket parts to make it look like Doohan's Repsol bike. That's why the upper fairing. It's likely from Silhouette and a copy of the NSR500 Repsol GP bike to update the intakes. So not a replacement for stock and in all fairness they do make nice stuff. This begs the question, who would put a fibreglass upper on a legit Repsol SP? It was definitely the previous owner that did all the mods. Did this guy really know what he was buying when he got this SE in the first place, I wonder?

In strained correspondence Whiteknuckle801 the seller insists the upper fairing is "Unobtanium", an insight into his bold claims. I've know about Silhouette for years and the upper is readily available, painted to match and bolt on for $500 US delivered. He does exaggerate a bit!
