1985 Yamaha RZ350 For Sale in Los Angeles

Here's another great legal two-stroker bike in L.A. on Craigslist, a 1985 RZ350 for $5900 (15k miles):

1985 Yamaha RZ350 For Sale in California1985 Yamaha RZ350 For Sale in California1985 Yamaha RZ350 For Sale in California1985 Yamaha RZ350 For Sale in California

quote from seller's Craigslist ad:

You can see by the pictures how clean this bike it, but you need to see it in person to really appreciate it. Not only does it look sweet, it hauls ass! 30mm Mikuni carbs, Boyesen carbon reeds, and CRG bar end mirrors, were just put on. The cylinders have been ported & the pistons are 1 size bigger than stock. The pipes are Spec II, and has a Fox shock. The solo seat cowl, that alone is worth money. The Dunlop tires have less than 400 miles on them. The fairing was made in Japan, and I'm not too sure if it's still available. Pretty trick looking, street fighter like.
There are no dents on the tank, 1 maybe 2 nicks, and there are no scratches. The miles 15,847 are original, I'm the second owner of this bike and I keep it covered to keep it clean and avoid the sun beating on it. It's well worth 5,900, but I'm willing to take reasonable offers.

This bike sounds like it's well sorted and ready to be enjoyed by it's next owner. Checking prices of other RZ350's we listed in the recent past show this price is about right.

Thanks for the heads up Roy!

1978 Yamaha RD400

Located in Spokane, Washington is a fantastic, original, 1978 Yamaha RD400 race bike.  This bike is in the same condition that it was last raced in 1981, and looks very good with no obvious damage and only slight patina.  This bike comes with an extensive period memorabilia collection, some of which this bike appears in.  The bike is priced fairly at $5,500; but the seller is accepting offers.  This is a quote of the entire ad to give you a history of this bike and what is included with it:

This is a 1978 Yamaha RD400 that was purchased out of Escondito California brand new and built into a race bike that competed in the Southern Californias ARRA and AFM race series from 1978 - 1981 then stored correct......... and it sits now just as it came off the race track in 1981. Most these bikes were either junk or got molested for parts which makes a bike like this, a complete unrestored full race bike with the paper history it has pretty rare! I bought this bike from the original owner/racer who kept the bike in great shape and also had a ton of paperwork on it. The motor had a fresh build with only one race on it then was pickled, it pulls very hard!!!! Bike is ready for the track, just needs to be unstored and new tires put on because it still has the old slicks on it from '81

Original ownership certificate, owners manual and warranty guide from escondito yamaha

TZ full race bodywork, electronics, wheel set, Tony Smith built motor with handmade matched expansion chambers, custom big reed blocks, lectron carbs, specialized aluminum swingarm, mulholland rear shocks, re worked front forks with air, ack rearsets, tapered head bearings, adjustable steering damper, clip ons, steel braided brake lines, fully safety wired

Also have an old California superbike school brochure with Eddie Lawson on it

Other
20+ cycle news from ('79-'83) and I believe this bike/racer is listed in reults in 1 or 2 of em, I have to go through and check for sure though, old motorcycle sport book by bob greene, cycle mag feturing the rd400 from 11/77, official program from the champion spark plug 200 at laguna 6/83, Kimberleys Grang Prix bike team guide #1 which talks about yamaha gp racing from '82-'85 including Roberts, Lawson and even Graziano Rossi who is Valentino Rossi's father

Bike also has bunch of jetting lectron needles, extra head gaskets,rear sprockets, plugs, chain pieces, master link and tool, # plates and other stuff needed for a day at the track all from that era.
The Windscreen is broken but I have a new in the box from gustafson racing. The guy said one of the Toomey brothers pushed him into the grass back in the day and he dropped it, also has a small dent on the left side of the tank.
I'm probably also forgetting some stuff, any questions just ask

If you're in the market for a vintage racer or classic piece of art, this bike should be considered!  See the bike on the Pacific Northwest Riders Forum here.

1992 Yamaha FZR600

Located in San Francisco, California is a 1992 Yamaha FZR600 with 7,000 original miles.  FZRs, especially the 600s, aren't that rare, but this one looks to be in above average condition with only seven-thousand original miles.  The bike may have been dropped on the right hand side judging by the marks on the intake below the "FZR" text--something to ask the seller about.  This example is stock except for an aftermarket rear shock and .95 Racetech springs in the front.  The bike is priced at a $2,600; which seems fair for a low mileage condition FZR.  See this bike on Bay Area Riders Forum here.
