1985 Yamaha RD500

Located in La Palma, California is a 1985 Yamaha RD500LC that only need some minor work to be complete.  This two owner RD500 shows only 3916km (2433mi) and only has 400mi since a "...frame off mechanical restoration."  Supposedly the bike has mechanically been completely gone through and only need some minor cosmetic touches to complete it.

Cylinders were honed and ports chamfered. New oem rings, wrist pins and clips installed. Every seal, gasket and o-ring was replaced along with oil injector lines. Brakes were completely rebuilt including master cylinders, calipers (fitted with EBC HH pads) and rotors resurfaced. All wheel bearings were replaced with new sealed bearings

This RD500 needs some cosmetic replacement parts, most importantly the exhaust and fairings, to become a very nice, low mileage bike.  The bike is titled and registered in California. Seller is also a usa2strokers.com forum member so contact him through that site or through the eBay ad here.

1989 Yamaha RZ350

For you lucky northern residents we have a Canadian market 1989 Yamaha RZ350 located in Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada.  The seller claims that this bike has an unbelievable (it doesn't look like it in the pictures) 29,000km (16k mi).  Shown in an excellent looking blue and yellow paint scheme, this bike looks showroom new--either it is, or the seller is good with a camera.  There are some evident scratches around the triple-clamp, but for being twenty years old, this bike looks almost perfect.  If I were a Canadian resident I would seriously consider this fine looking example.  See the eBay ad here.
