In the early 1990s, Honda turned the motorcycling world on its head when it released the CBR900RR Fireblade. The ‘Blade’s designer, Tadao Baba, primarily focused on keeping weight down above all else — a must considering his brief was to deliver a modern superbike with open-class power, weighing no more than your average 600 of the day. The “Fireblade” name is actually the result of a mistranslation of the word “lightning”, and it didn’t fit squarely into any of the existing major classes. Rather, Honda’s goal was to create the best possible road-going superbike, and the eventual result was the 900RR.

At the heart of the original Fireblade — which didn’t come to US shores until ’93 — was a 893cc in-line four which was essentially a stroked three-quarter liter mill with a 70mm bore. Though it wasn’t the most powerful engine of its day, the RR’s 124 hp, 65 ft-lbs of torque, and 160 mph top speed were nothing to scoff at, especially with its svelte weight. A number of measures were taken by Baba and his team to ensure the Fireblade would hit its target weight. This included using a highly-developed lightweight frame, 16” front wheel, conventional forks instead of heavier inverted units (though the 900RR’s front-end was designed to look like an upside down fork) and even the Swiss cheesed-nose.

In the end, Baba-san came through, delivering a 900 that tipped the scales at around 450lbs wet. It was less than 10 lbs heavier than the CBR600, and a whopping 100lbs lighter than most of the open-class competition of the day.

This example is VIN: JH2SC28U1PM100024.

The seller notes that “the bike was built from a rolling chassis that was raced by Stuart Woodbury and Alex Pickering in the PCRA championship in Sydney. When I got it, it had a later model tail and some really crappy paint on it, so I decided to rebuild it and came up with the idea of the building this bike, which is a replica of the bike Tommy Lynch rode for Two Brothers in the CBR Cup when they first came out.”

“It was recently on display and ridden at the Adelaide Motorsport Festival in South Australia.”

There is no odometer, true mileage is unknown.

Maintenance:
The seller has provided the following video to show the build process and illustrate some of the work performed:

He adds that “the tank had a seal kit put through it as it had a crack on the rear mounting seam and it’d been welded. It was ok, but I’m a bit OCD, so I wanted to seal it up to stop potential rust etc in the future. I’ve done a few of these kits in the past and they work very well.

I replaced the tail with a brand new one from AirTech, as well as the front mudguard and had it all repainted by a local painter.  All of the decals were done as close as possible to the originals.

The suspension has been revalved and it has an aftermarket rear shock. A lot of things on the bike have been drilled to save weight and it runs a total loss charging system.

The engine runs very well and from memory when purchased had great even compression across all four. I rode it at the Adelaide Motorsport Festival in March (as pictured) and it rode really nicely. It has a full front to back exhaust with an Erion muffler polished and tagged to look like a TBR one. The carburetors have had a jet kit put in them and runs Ramair foam filters.

Being a 1992 I really should keep it, but I have two other 900RR race bikes and a 1992 street bike.”

Modifications:
Race bodywork with custom-painted Two Brothers livery, replica decals.

AirTech tail.

“Full front to back exhaust with an Erion muffler polished and tagged to look like a Two Brothers exhaust.”

The seller states that “many components on the bike have been drilled to save weight.” For instance:

Moreover, the bike has been “safety wired throughout.”

Not pictured: total loss charging system, Ramair foam filters.

Inside of the tank:
