If you’re passionate about Honda’s legendary RC30, you’ve probably heard of Jim Granger. He’s an expert when it comes to the model, so any example that’s been under his care is worth a close look. According to the seller, this example was Jim’s personal bike between 1991 and 2014 and it features a lot of trick HRC parts.

Highlights of the HRC upgrades include 17″ magneisum wheels, full floating front rotors and calipers, front axle, fork internals (with external adjustment), radiators, rear shock, rear ride height adjuster, and possibly a jet kit. It also has a Moriwaki dry clutch, custom Yoshimura full exhaust, stainless steel braided fork lines, and more. The motor has 21,537 miles on it and it has never been taken apart. I don’t really like the style of the wheels (they’d look better in white), but I can’t deny that they’re special.

If you’ve been looking for a RC30 and don’t mind straying from 100% stock, it’s hard to go wrong with this. The stock motor should stay reliable for a while, but you’ll get some period upgrades that I have to imagine would be just about impossible to source otherwise. If you’re like-minded, find this RC30 for sale in Encino, California with bidding up to $24,100 and the reserve not yet met or a BIN of $28,030
