Always a fan favorite at RSBFS, we've got a very original RZ500 to share today. This one is described as very good condition with only some minor fairing cracks noted, which isn't at all uncommon on a bike of this age that actually has been ridden. What I also find comforting is the other classic sportbikes in the background that the seller says will be available soon.
from the seller:
This is a 100% original never painted, never chopped, never hot rodded, all there, 2 stroke, stock exhaust intact, 1984 500cc Moto GP simulator from Yamaha. Apparently they couldn't even get them in here. Near as I can tell, these were delivered only in Japan, Canada and Australia. I bought this one from the original Australian private owner who brought it in to California. Typically, if you can find one of these, they have been cut up, modified, hot rodded and raced. Every nut and bolt on this one are as they came from the factory. The bike is as new front to back. There are some very small fractures around the fairing fasteners that are very subtle and do not affect the security of the fairing. The original owner and I agreed that while the repair would be simple and inexpensive the departure from originality made it a bad plan. It runs like new and is a pretty unbelievable grin to ride. I find it much more civilized than I would have thought it would be. Just can't quite do justice to the grins this little bike brings as it comes on the pipe. No great noise or drama. It just steps up and goes seemingly indefinitely. It is entirely solid and dependable as well as durable. I occasionally roll it out and ride it like somebody else already owned it. It will not disappoint and is too rare to do anything but appreciate even if you do ride it like you stole it. (I recommend that you do.)
