I remember drewling over this bike a while back. I wish I had the $$$ to buy one back then. Correct me if i'm wrong but I think it had a sticker price of $27,000 without the race kit, which bumped it up to $40-$48,000, and that was when a top shelf 600 was only $4000 or so.

No it's not mine. I wish I owned a RC45 though.

That one in the pic is CLEAN! I'd love to get my hands on one of those for my 'stable' of Hondas. Alright, alright, I've only got one bike in the stable but it's a start, right?/images/icons/smile.gif

jmoney~ If you thought $40,000+ was a lot of money back then, I can only imagine what an owner today would want for it.

If anyone is really that interested, I know a guy who has a low mileage never raced RC45 for sale. He wants 20 grand, but I'm sure he'd consider serious offers.

I haven't ridden his, but I've ridden another friend's RC45. They're neat bikes, but they are REALLY small. Teeny tiny. Plus, they were designed for the track, so the gearing is kinda goofy. Real tall first gear. A lot like my 96 ZX-7RR.

If interested, email me at [email protected]

Make sure your brain is bigger than your balls!!

It's still beautiful after all these years...

I was in college, around 1989. There was a cycle shop across the street from school and my buddy Adam and I would go over there and drool all over the RC30 they had displayed up on a little podium. We must have killed hours in that damn shop.

Fast forward to 2002. I have a '01 ZX6R and Adam has a '98 ZX6E. The dream of an RC30 is the reality of affordable 600's!
