You definitely don’t see these every day. The Vance & Hines edition of the FZR600 wasn’t much different than the standard FZR of the time other than the V&H exhaust. However, the paint scheme was custom and a post-factory job. With only 636 of these specials produced, they don’t come about too often.
The bike up for grabs here looks to be in very good condition considering its age and mileage. I don’t see any damage to the fairings other than some small chipping near the seat on the solo tail. The auction does include a host of extras like Original V&H paperwork and care instruction for the bike, a signed Eddie Lawson Daytona200 poster and several other items.

Now some of you might not be super into the paint scheme, unless you are a huge Kareem Abdul-Jabbar fan. But if you are a huge Yamaha fan or collector, then this bike offers a chance to own a replica bike for a very reasonable cost. Miles are on the higher end, but the condition of the bike does not show it at all. You can check out the auction here and decide for yourself!
