And here’s the other one:
quote from eBay posting:
The bike is all factory original with 38,000kms and although i’m not a mechanic-I think it does require a good going over as it was in storage for over 12 years. It does in fact run and usually starts on the very first kick with the choke on. It does however have a few imperfections due to its age but has never been crashed while being driven as far as I can see. Appears as though it was dropped while being pushed around or maybe it fell off the stand.
These RZ’s have that crazy 2 stroke, 4 cylinder “square” configuration with two cranks! Read more about the RZ500 at How Stuff Works.
