OW Yeah: Two 1989 Yamaha OW-01s at one English dealer

1989 Yamaha FZR750RR OW01 for sale on eBay

The Yamaha OW01, also known as the FZR750RR, is a unicorn in any condition, with just 500 bikes spread over a three model-year run. They were more exclusive, marginally more powerful, and a big chunk more expensive than Honda's genre-defining RC30.

1989 Yamaha FZR750RR OW01 for sale on eBay

Like the Honda they were up against, OWs won scads of races worldwide, including under American 500cc Gran Prix ace Eddie Lawson at Daytona. All that desirability, coupled with their extreme rarity, means they don't show up for sale too often, much less two in the same place at the same time.

And yet, here we are. This English dealership has managed to score a brace of 1989 Yamaha FZR750RRs, one with black and white wheels, one with two black wheels. Both bikes appear to be in excellent shape, though the one with bi-color wheels has covered nearly 25,000 miles. The black-wheeled example has not yet cracked 5,000 and looks like the prize of the pair.

Buy the Pair: 1988 and 1990 Yamaha FZR400

The Yamaha FZR 400 is the kind of bike that manages to get ignored by wide swathes of the motorcycling population, but instill deep devotion in those who have discovered its fantastic chassis, sprightly engine and general friendliness.

1988 Yamaha FZR400 for sale on eBay   1990 Yamaha FZR400 for sale on eBay

That appears to have been the case here, as the seller has not one, but two FZR 400s, and from two different eras of the 14,000 RPM featherweight. The 1988 model has covered a few more miles,  but wears Yamaha's iconic red and white livery and fantastic "pure sportsgraphics. The 1990 is slightly lower mileage, but wears the still cool but not as pretty later livery.

FZR cognoscenti will also know that the '90 should make the better rider's bike and track day machine, as it has bigger, four-pot front discs and an aluminum Deltabox swingarm, as opposed to the older model's square steel unit. Either bike will be a more engaging ride than the heavier, flexier, less-special FZR600 that was available at the same time.

With about 60 horses pushing about 400 pounds, the FZR400 is no slouch, especially for its size and its lovely inline four responds beautifully to revs.

From the eBay listings:

The ask for each bike is in the upper echelon of what one should reasonably expect for these bikes. They are each in beautiful condition and apparently need nothing, but are not likely to gain much more value. That said, they likely won't take a plunge any time soon, either.

Garish but Good: 1992 Yamaha FZR600 Vance and Hines

The 1992 Yamaha FZR600 Vance and Hines was little more than a garish factory-applied graphics package to celebrate the two manufacturers' AMA Supersport partnership. We've covered a few of these things over the years, and I might be the only person on the RSBFS team who legitimately digs heinous '90s graphics packages.

1992 Yamaha FZR600 Vance and Hines for sale on eBay

There is something so appropriately in-your-face about two heinously bright colors jammed together on a machine that was never designed to make you the Kiwanis Club's favorite Eagle Scout. If you're gonna be antisocial, you might as well be ugly and hard to miss.

This bike is number 331 out of 600 such machines made, and carries the de rigueur Vance and Hines exhaust system, along with the fairly rare Powerpak CDI box. The seller makes no mention of the CDI, or whether the bike has been jetted to accommodate the mods. If it has, it will positively scream. (Side note: I owned a standard '90 FZR with this exhaust setup. Absolutely the loudest machine I have ever owned or ridden. Period.)

Vance and Hines 331 is in good shape, but has a scratched engine cases and needs its choke lever bolted back on. The seller lists a bunch of recent easy maintenance, so it should be a pretty reliable ride, even with the imperfections.

From the eBay listing:

So I have been debating selling this for a while now. It just sits and is extra insurance costs. It is a 1992 Vance & Hines one of only 600 ever made. These are getting more and more rare all the time but because of the color maybe not as popular. Personally I think this screams early 90s and I love how it stands out. This is an excellent running machine and could be driven daily easily. This summer I have changed the oil, spark plugs, brake pads, brake fluid and radiator fluid. The carburetors have been run through recently cleaned and synchronized as well. The bike made 87 hp at the rear wheel which is unheard of for the year. It's quite a great running bike. I have been paying way too much for insurance though as I love bikes too much. I have so many that this is just one I don't use. The bad, well it has scratches on both sides of the engine not the plastic and the front fairing has cracks in it. Also the choke is not bolted on and it has a fan switch. So nothing major for a bike this old. When changing the spark plugs I checked everywhere and the engine is clean, spotless no leaks anywhere.

I have extra bar ends, the actual plastic that goes under seat, extra rear lights, the book and of course you can't have this without the poster. 😉 I also have a video of this running on youtube I can share from last year.

The auction has seen little activity yet, and the starting bid is low enough to make this a great entry point into a bike that might not have the provenance of some of its peers, but will always be desirable to the right person.

Featured Listing: Low-mileage 1993 Yamaha FZR1000

This 1993 Yamaha FZR1000 from featured seller Gary is museum quality, having covered just 3,000 miles in its 24 years over two owners. The paint and 90s-tastic graphics are scratch, ding and mark free, which is nearly unheard of for a U.S.-market literbike of this vintage.

1993 Yamaha FZR1000 for sale on eBay

Gary's FZR is from near the end of the bike's eight-year production run, and features Yamaha's innovative Exup system, which allowed Yamaha to run super aggressive cams without sacrificing a placid street idle, and gave the bike a smooth powerband from the bottom end to red line.

By 1993, the 145-horsepower FZR1000 was beginning to show its age, as the Honda CBR900RR was on its way to turn the literbike market on its head. Still, the line had managed to top comparison tests and ten-best lists for the previous few years, and left an indelible dent in perceptions of what sport bikes could be.

From the eBay listing:

Up for sale is a Minty almost new condition 1993 Yamaha FZR1000 with only 3,018 miles. This is a domestic model with only two owners. This FZR looks like it has 3 miles on it, not 3000. Completely stock just like the day it rolled off the assembly line. Original tires in excellent shape no cracking. Original brake pads, chain and sprockets in original mint condition. Fairings 100% genuine original OEM Yamaha. Fairings and fuel tank in flawless condition. Bike has just been serviced with new battery and new engine fluids. Needs nothing ready to ride. No rust or patina. Not a speck of rust inside the fuel tank. Bike has been a living room Queen most of its life. Museum quality collector.

Comes with Utah state title. There are cheaper FZR's on the market but not in this condition. This is a premium bike. Please text 801-358-6537 for more photos and questions. $500 PayPal deposit. Balance accepted by check, bank wire or cash in person.

As a breed, the FZR1000 is not at all rare. They were made in their thousands and sold admirably in the U.S. market. What makes this bike special is the scant mileage, new condition and ownership history. It is original down to the brake pads, chain and sprockets, though if you're going to ride it, we would suggest freshening those parts as well as the tires. The auction has just over a day left, so hurry past before the opportunity is gone!

Sponsored Listing: 1986 Yamaha FZR250

Update 9.27.2017: Price reduced to $4,200 buy-it-now. Good luck to buyers and seller! -dc

Yet another Japanese micro rocket from our friends at Deftone Cycles, this quarter-liter 1986 Yamaha FZR250 represents the smallest offering in the FZR line, and was a grey-market import everywhere except Japan. Though it sits on tiny tires and rocks a single-disc front brake to match, do not make the mistake of under estimating this bike.

1986 Yamaha FZR250 on eBay

The inline-four spins its tiny pistons to a dizzying 18,000 rpm, pushing out a very impressive 45 horsepower along the way. Sure, that may not sound like much, but on a bike this light with tires that skinny, you will have your hands full. Save your momentum, learn to brake late and light, and see who you can surprise.

This FZR250 comes from the first year of the model's production run and looks like it is in pristine shape. There appears to be a small scratch on the left-side fairing, some crazing on the jet-black exhaust and a tiny tear on the pillion seat, but beyond that this thing shines.

It is all original save the windscreen and has covered less than 12,000 miles. From the seller:

1986 Yamaha FZR250 FZR 250. 11,052 Miles (17,787 Kilometers) 250cc four-cylinder that redlines at 17,000 rpm and manages 45hp. Very original OEM equipped bike. This particular bike is one from my personal collection. I purchased it here in the states from another importer. Since then I have given it a lot of love and attention. This JDM is a great entry-level bike that will give you no issues. All fluids are fresh. Shifts and revs to redline perfectly. Starts effortlessly every time. Fairings are OEM with original paint/decals. Winds screen is aftermarket. Small tear on corner of pillion seat. Upper front forks have some pitting, mainly between the tree?s so it Does not interfere with fork seals. Only selling because I am down sizing. Bike has Vin Matching State of Ohio Title. VIN: 2KR140*** ?Buyer is responsible for their own State Requirements.? Sold as is. Buyer responsible for shipping. Thanks for looking. Please email any questions.

Just over a day left on the listing, which is set at $4,600 Buy-It-Now, or best offer. Hurry before this one is gone!

Welterweight: 1989 Yamaha FZR400R

The 400cc class of bikes is a special one. In the 1980s and 1990s these sub-middleweights provided a rare mix of compact geometry, light weight and just enough horsepower (if there is such a thing). The resulting motorcycles were outstanding rider machines, race-worthy platforms and lusted after by world markets. The US was privy to but one such example: The Yamaha FZR400. Created in 1986 as the "1WG" series of bikes, the FZR400 ran through numerous changes through 1990. Today the little Fizzers are the most common of the 400cc set in the States, and in many ways the best for those who prefer riding to collecting. Parts, knowledge and upgrades are available more readily for the Yamaha, making it an easy 400cc choice. And the ride is nothing short of fantastic.

1989 Yamaha FZR400R for sale on eBay

Everything on the FZR400R is a big bike on Slim Fast. The motor is a Genesis derivative - right down to the extremely canted cylinders - but only 399cc instead of a 750 or 1100. The chassis - a slick aluminum Delta Box unit - looks like an OW01 was given the shrinky-dink treatment. Ditto the bodywork (with the cool, double headlights), cockpit (yes, redline starts at 14k) and other pieces of kit. The FZR400R is no dog; there are some proper numbers in this beast, including 60 HP and a scant 352 pound dry weight.

From the seller:
Up for auction to the highest bidder with NO RESERVE is a 1989 Yamaha FZR400R with only 14,524 kilometers (9,025 miles).

This FZR has a crack in the windscreen, it had a crack in the lower left fairing and cracks in the mirror mounts that have been repaired, left side of the tank has been touched up and repaired, rear passenger seat is cracking and needs to be re upholstered, There is a small piece broken off of the tab on the underside of the fairing but still useable. The bike has scratches and scrapes throughout. Right side plastic liner piece is missing. Touch up paint here and there to hide the nicks and scratches. The bike has good curb appeal but the kid that probably owned it was on a budget so everything was repaired on the cheap by himself.

The good news is the bike is solid and only has 9,025 miles and under the plastic it looks clean. It runs like the day it was new. The lower fork tubes, radiator, exhaust headers, frame and swing arm are all clean and no damage. This bike would make an excellent candidate for restoration. A professional body guy could make this bike look perfect. Bike will come with new battery, fluids and filters. This FZR has a slip on muffler by O.V.E.R. but bike comes with stock OEM muffler also. All fairings are OEM Yamaha original.

Bike comes with Utah state title and is titled as a street motorcycle for road use. Happy bidding.

The seller has done a good job outlining the pros and cons of this particular example. The bike looks great in the photos, but there are some blems on this young 28 year old. It is likely that prior ownership has brought with it some errant issues that will need to be remedied if you want to show. If you just want to go, it looks like it could be more cosmetic than actual damage; ride the wheels off and have fun. Send us a postcard when you finally wipe the smile off your face.

This bike is being offered by the Utah collector with a number of tasty bikes - this one complete with title and tags. The auction format is No Reserve, which is a nice way of saying that the highest bidder wins (even if it is a low bid). At the time of writing, this bid is sitting in very affordable territory at $2,000 USD. I would not expect this to hang out in sub $5k circles by the end of it all, but it will be interesting to see where it ends. Check it out here before it's gone. Good Luck!!
