A gorgeous looking OW01 with less than 3k miles!
Bike: 1989 Yamaha FZR750R
Price: £15,000 (GBP)
Location: Somewhere in the UK.
This seller has a few bikes for sale, and this one is the best looking! The seller states that this OW01 is an original UK bike and has been stored in a climate controlled environment since new. Other than mentioning that this bike is in fantastic condition, the seller also states that this bike comes with:
…ALL THE ORIGINAL PAPERWORK FOR THE BIKE, OWNERS MANUAL, SALES BROCHURE, SERVICE BOOK, TOOL KIT, ORIGINAL TYRES AND ORIGINAL SPARE KEYS.
The seller is very correct in stating that the FZRR’s seem to be the rarest of the WSB homologation bikes and I fully agree, this bike is a finely tweaked racing machine that sill looks very similar to the FZR1000 that was available at the same time. However, I believe the saying is everything that is rare isn’t valuable and, unfortunately, the FZR750R isn’t up to RC30 levels yet. That being said, you’re going to have to be pretty keen on the OW01 to justify the asking price of £15,000.00 ($24,229.30 USD as of this writing). The seller is feeling no guilt in the last thrashes of the recession–hopefully–as he is asking OW02 money for an OW01. But, if you’re so inclined, I invite you to see if you can talk the seller, down, down to a reasonable level via the eBay link .
