Harris Endurance Exotica: 1988 Harris “HARRIBOX” F1 Endurance Yamaha Racebike

harris rightharris close

There is no denying that February was a bit of a yawn when it came to rare and interesting sport bikes for sale.  I hope this is a sign of things to come.  I knew as soon as I saw that frame that this wasn't your average Yamaha YZF or OW.  The seller has an excellent description of the bike so I'll let him tell the story the rest of the way.  Enjoy the welds!

I agree with the seller, it deserves race replica paint.  The asking price is steep at 20,000 GBP but the seller is open to offers and possible swaps.

Monday Mailbag!

First up is submitted by "Dan RC", a very rare 1981 Honda CB1100RB on eBay UK for 12k GBP. Awesome!

Next up from Dan is this Kawasaki ZX7 on our Facebook page.

Dan also spotted this 1994 Honda VFR400 for sale in Colorado for $5k. Thanks Dan!

Check out this 93 works Ducati 888 spotted by Pelayo in Spain! He writes, "This one is special. That bike is a 888 works Ducati from 93 that was used by Dani Amatriain (former Lorenzo´s manager) to try win the Spanish superbike national (lot of money at this moment from this rider). The bike was so dominant at european championship but at the end the spanish title went to a private RC30 from former 500 privateer Lopez Mella. I remember watching it raced also at world SBK at Jarama."

James recently posted his Honda MC21 NSR250 in our Classifieds area for $7500. Good luck with sale!

Erik emailed us to alert us to his 1985 Honda NS250R for sale in Denver for $3500. Good luck with the sale!

Next from John is the 94 Yamaha YZF750. It looks very complete, has receipts, and even the toolkit is still there. Just $3000 in Chicago.

From Pete we have this very low miles 2002 Moto Guzzi Le Mans for just $7k in Montana. Love the colors!

From Sébastien we have this rather rare bird, a 1980 Honda Segale 1000. If you can provide information on this bike, leave a comment below!

Mike sends us this spotting in Los Angeles, a 2006 Derbi GPR125 for $6k.

Have a good morning all!

1999 Yamaha R7 OW02

1999 Yamaha YZF750 OW02 R7

Miles: 3,264

Price: $22,000 (BIN)

Update 11.3.10: Sold!

This 1999 Yamaha YZF750 R7 is another beauty from Jeff’s outstanding collection. What could possibly be better than a limited edition Yamaha OW01? You guessed it, a Yamaha OW02! This race homologation model was limited to a production run of 500 units in 1999, making this quite rare indeed. The condition of this particular example is pristine. The R7 was produced to qualify the bike for World Superbike racing, and thus was not titled for street use from the dealer. Despite that fact, this version carries a Washington state title.

At a quick glance, this bike could be mistaken for either one of its siblings, the R6 or R1, but that would be a huge mistake as this is outfitted with race technology not afforded to the other “R”s. Some of these goodies include titanium valves & connecting rods, Ohlins suspension front & rear and a “back torque limiter” clutch, an early version of the slipper clutch. The seller tells the story:

1999 Yamaha YZF750 0w02 R7

750cc Homologation Special

All original and in excellent condition with only 3,264 miles.

This bike is titled, regestered and LICENSED for road use in Washington State.

No issues getting this machine licensed for the street -as it has already been done-!!

The bike has the YEC-Kit fuel pump, fuel regulator and wiring mod to engage the secondary fuel injectors and raise the horsepower

from the restricted state of tune used to pass import regulations (along with the addition of the Kit silencer and Kit airbox).

It is shown with YEC Kit exhaust canister but I also have the original Yamaha exhaust muffler as the original has been wrapped up

and boxed for safe keeping along with the original regulator, fuel pump and airbox.

For those true enthusiasts and collectors out there, you"ll already know the history and how rare the 0W02 is here in the United States.

Most became race bikes -so the number of original condition machines that were never raced remains VERY low.

Check out my other upcoming auctions -as I'll have a number of other additional homologation specials coming up soon that will include:

Honda RC-30, Yamaha YZF750 0w01, Bimota 500cc V-due two-stroke, Yamaha R7-1, Ducati 888 among other SBK machines.

Regarding price, the $22,000 seems to be right in line with market value based on past comparable sales, as seen here and here. See the full listing including heavy tech specs and more photos .

Enjoy,

BG

1999 YAMAHA R7 ALL ORIGINAL, LOW MILES

Please welcome Jay as our newest author. He has an extensive racing and sales history with most of the bikes we've featured on these pages and should fit right in around here. Welcome aboard Jay!

What can I say? Located in Florida this is definitely a bike that any modern day collector should have in the garage. To homologate Yamaha's 750cc race bike Yamaha had to make a street version for the public. In 1999 these bikes were about $33k and they really didn't sell well at all; I mean who pays that for 750cc's and oh BTW it looks like your buddies YZF750 he just bought for $8k. Once the body works off though there lies the difference, dual injectors (only one per cylinder is hooked up though) Ohlins, coil mounted spark plug caps, big airbox (holds two $5 foot longs), data logging ECU,etc, etc.

Capped at 105 hp you can buy the Yamaha race wiring harness that will enable the second injector and then install a proper race exhaust and a few other bits like neon grips and bingo, you're near 135hp. One problem though, so you've got the bike, you've bought all the race bits and  $60,000 later you're cruzin' through your favorite "hood" and BAM, the crank falls out. Yup luckily Yamaha will replace your crank with a nice shinny new updated one for free since they all had this problem. This one doesn't say its had a new crank but who knows maybe Yamaha may still honor the warranty. Anyone got $26,500 bones I can borrow?  See the ad here

1999 Yamaha R7 Description

1999 Yamaha R7, All Original, Garaged, Mint Condition, Never Raced/Dropped or Safety Wired, never sold to end user. Yamaha Homologation model only 500 made/sold in the world only 50 in the US, Still shows nipples on tires. No other on the road and certainly not in this condition. A collector's wish list item. No it is not a modified R6 or tricked out R1! This is the real deal!

The bike is a definite favorite for me, and if  it's "as described" I think the price is not too far off, I'd like to be closer to the lower $20's. It goes in my book as a "must have" if you are serious about collecting bikes like the RC45, RC30, OW01, etc,  just watch out for the flying cranks, enjoy!

Yamaha Thunderace Market Update

After spotting the Yamaha YZF1000R for sale right here in town, I got curious about how rare this model is today. Turns out, I can't find many available to evaluate! The few I spotted were actually outdated ads that had sold already. Most were a bit cheaper, but not by a great deal.

Yamaha YZF1000R Thunderace

I guess what makes me believe that I could even contemplate a bike like this is that I have a very vivid recollection of riding shotgun back in college on my buddy Jay Johansen's CBR1000F. While it was exhilarating, it certainly didn't seem like the crazy, uncontrollable power that the CBR's 135hp would suggest. Although this could be due to the additional weight: the CBR1000F weighs in at over 500 pounds, while the Yamaha tips the scale at 430 pounds. And the Thunderace certainly has more sporting intentions with more aggressive stance, bodywork, and another 10hp. But in conservative hands, surely it couldn't be too much right? Maybe it is. Here's a quote from Nigel Wines writing for Motorcycle.com on the YZF1000R:

The YZF1000 is a bike that only skilled, competent, experienced riders can enjoy -- anything less, and you'll just scare yourself silly. Or worse. If you haven't got experience on big bikes and raced a bit, go for something else.

Well that pretty much rules me out as I'm only qualified to drive Miss Daisy compared to most sport riders. Or maybe that ride 15 years ago, when I was pretty young and naive, was faster than I recall.

Even though the motor is a bit outdated in this bike, basically lifted from the FZR1000, it is a 5 valve per cylinder, EXUP equipped, Yamaha motor. And damn they're sharp looking motorcycles. I've been right-clicking-save-as like a madman on these articles!
