quote from seller's eBay listing:

Up for bids is a 1989 FZR 1000. I 'm the second owner of the bike and it has never been wrecked or ridden in the rain. The bike is completely original except for the rear tire. There are minor nicks and scratches on the bike but they are not that noticeable. There is a small scratch on the rear swingarm behind the pipe that was caused by sticking a slip on test pipe on. The test pipe turned and allowed it to contact the swingarm. The bike is ready for a rider or a new place to be stored. My asking price for the bike is $4000.00 obo.

Doug's email was prefaced by, "Not sure if this meets your criteria but..." My response: Hell yes it meets my criteria! These aren't that common anymore, and certainly not in this condition. And at just over $1 per mile, I think it's a fantastic buy!

Thanks again Doug for a great submission!

excerpts from the listing:

The Good
Only 5,993 miles. I believe we are the 3rd owners, and to the best of my knowledge, the mileage is correct. When we were riding it, it always started and ran well and never let us down. As of the last time we rode it, everything worked... all the lights, switches, brakes, clutch, etc... The tires are Metzlers that only have 2,000 to 3,000 miles on them. Cosmetically, it looks great with the exception of the small amount of fairing damage described in "The Bad" section below. It still sports its factory original body work, including the wind screen and the cool removable cowl that covers the passenger seat! Everyone who is serious about FZR400s knows that 1990 is the year to have. FZR400s were only imported to the USA from 1988 to 1990, and the 1990 model had significant upgrades over the prior years (such as the greatly improved swing arm, etc...). Plus, 1990 was the only year it was offered in the black & dark blue color scheme.

The Unknown
We have not ridden it in about 8 years. It is in the infamous "ran when parked" condition. During the past 8 years (and really... during the whole time we have owned it), it has always been kept in an indoor, heated and air conditioned storage space. It has no battery, but I can't think of any reason that it would not start and run with a new battery and a carb cleaning.

The Bad
The guy we bought it from was either the 1st or 2nd owner. He wanted to take it to a track day, so he safety wired it, took it to one track day, lowsided, and then sold us the bike. The lowside resulted in the loss of a chunk of the right side of the fairing. This is such a shame because the rest of the bodywork is original and looks great. He also scraped the right side engine cover.

These are all interesting in their own way, but that V&H FZR1000 seems like a steal to me -- even if the colors are hideous! Thanks for hooking us up with the links Doug!

Custom 1984 RZ350

Located in Pittsburg, California is a very cool custom 1984 RZ350 consisting of parts from a RZ/TZ/R6.  This bike is titled and registered.  Seller states that it is 95% complete and is asking what seems to be a fair $5,000.  The details as per the seller:

-1990 TZ250 Rear Caliper
-1984 Full Braced / Gusseted Frame, Titled and Plated
-1985 Wire Harness & CDI

Only 6 hours on the motor since being built. Requires 100 Octane Race Fuel with current domes but can be setup to run 92 Octane pump gas with included domes. Carbs will need new floats... I foolishly left the fuel petcock on when I went on a short vacation. The VP MR race fuel gummed up the carb bowls and floats. I have cleaned the throttle bodies extensively but will most likely have to replace the floats.

A very cool custom bike that appears to be at a very good price for the right person.  See the Craigslist ad here.
