The world of rare and collectable motorcycles is a funny place. You can go months with never seeing a particular bike, and then you can find four of them in a very short span of time. Feast or famine is the general rule, and today we feast on yet another pre OW-01 homologated Yamaha, the Genesis-powered FZR 750R.
Todays R model hails from sunny Florida and sports only 5,392 miles on the clock. There is some wear noted in the picuters (and by the seller), but overall this looks to be a pretty solid example of the model. This homologated bike never quite took off like the vaunted OW series, making it a bit of a sleeper in the rare sport bike world. As a result, prices are far closer to reality - which is a good thing for those of you reading along.
From the seller:
1987 Yamaha FZR 750R homologated for AMA racing and only 200 were made.
The bike runs and rides Excellent!
5392 mileage is actual!
Bike has a few small scratches on the tank and rear seat cowl. Paint is original and shows a small scuff on the right side mid fairing as well. Over all in Great Shape! Please ask any questions before you bid. Only serious buyers please.
This auction just started and has several days left to run. Despite RSBFS catching this one early, there are already a number of bidders in the fray, and the auction is up to $2,076 with reserve still in place. Considering that there have been 3 previous models posted on Rare in the last several weeks, you can get a pretty good idea of the market (hint: use the search function). For more infomation and pictures on this bike, click the link and jump over to the auction. Enjoy the feast of these rare homologations while you can; no telling when the market will dry up on the early FZR-R models.
