Hi all,

Well, I'm going to be relocating to Australia on December 7th so that my wife, daughter and I can spend some time with my side of the family for about 5 years. I am strongly contemplating exporting my bike to Australlia, but am also considering selling it here and just starting aftesh when I get there b/c the shipping costs are about $1,800. It may just be a better option for me to try and sell it here first. I can out some money to a bike when I get there.

So, here's your one and only chance to buy a Formula Extreme big bore CBR 945cc 145RWHP dyno tested total frankenstein bike, that doesn't look like it, and runs on premium pump gas (no additives or race gas required). She's a real 'sleeper', very unassuming (nobody would know what's under the bodywork!!). It's a 95 motor and frame (clear MI title), with 99 bodywork, swingarm and gauges, 17" F3 front wheel. Anyways, I'll list the specs below. I have receipts for the motor work for nearly $6K alone that was done by Racebikes in Wyoming, MI, and that doesn't include the flatslide carbs which are over $1K on their own. Including buying the bike, the parts, motor work, paint, powdercoating etc, there's probably around $20,000 in the bike (I know you're going "whaaaat?". Believe me, I have added it up and can do it for you too to prove it if needed!!!). You know what it would cost if you had to do these mods to your own bike.

$6600 takes it. I will consider offers within reason too, all you have to do is ask. But I can just as easily ship the bike overseas as I am not in any way desperate to sell it. Just giving people the chance to buy a fully built bike right now. Title is clean and clear. No trades or part trades please.

Consider that stock undamaged 98-99 900rr's sell for around $4200-5000 on Ebay. For all the motor work and internals, flatslide carbs, custom metallic paint, powdercoating, F3 wheel, Corbin seat, indiglo gauges, Acumen Digi gear indicator, Pilot Power tires, upgraded braking, solo cowl, TBR exhaust, and all the other cool s-h-y-t-e, I'm only asking another $1600-$2400 more. Flatslides alone are $1100 new without the air filters! Like I said, I have receipts for nearly $6K just for the motor work without the carbs or other parts!!

Bike has 22,800 miles total, but the motor work was done at 19,000 miles (so only 3,800 on the motor - a lot of it highway). Doesn't really matter anyways...stunters know that these motors are bulletproof and very long lasting. It has a brand new Barnett clutch too. Only Amsoil synthetic oil has been used. Although this is a race bike motor with about 170hp at the crank, it is extremely streetable. It is not tempermental or difficult to ride. With a flat torque curve of 72 lb ft at the rear wheel, there's no way it could be. It has CHARACTER and is very unique. And there's no way you'll look like anybody else at that sportbike meet! I'd like to think the bike is a looker, and very distinct.

Test rides gladly permitted, but only with a $6600 cash deposit in hand!

Interested? Please call Simon on 248-961-2300 (EDT) or email: [email protected]. Bike is located in Detroit, Michigan.

Mate, you're nuts.

For the money you've spent and the relatively small cost to ship it, bring it home.

BTW, that's a sweet looking bike! Love the colour! :thumbs2:

Well fortunately, I didn't spend the money on all the expensive upgrades and I didn't pay the $8-9K for the bike when it was new (the original owner did). But it still does owe me very close to what I am asking (for what I spent on the rebuild).

I will more than likely ship it, but it is still for sale if anybody is interested.

Thanks Cookee!

Looks like I will be shipping it. Just spoke with another shipping company today and they can ship my bike for about USD$1480 to the port of Melbourne if I drop the crated bike to their warehouse in Waterford. As it will be in a crate, I can ship back the original exhaust and some other parts for it too.

I do need to move the paperwork quickly though, as it takes 3 months to ship it (if I send just the bike, but 2 months if we ship all our stuff as we'll have a whole 20ft container to ourselves), and it also takes up to 17 days to get an import approval for the bike. I'd like to have the bike on the road not too much after I arrive in Melbourne on the 9th of December so I can enjoy the summer.

BTW, what do you think a bike like mine might sell for in AUD in Australia?

Hard to compare, considering all of the mod's. I've seen '95 models selling for around AUD$7,000 (US$5,200) but, once again, the mod's would blow that out a bit.
