For those who follow and collect homologation machines, the OW-01/02 series bikes are the crown jewels of the Yamaha lineup. But before the OW nomenclature, Yamaha homologated another racing machine – the FZR 750RU. While not quite as rare, coveted or expensive as the OW bikes, the 750RU is a great collector machine. It has timeless lines, great performance, historical significance and was built in limited numbers. We have see a few of these on RSBFS (search for FZR750RU here), and they always seem to be well received. This particular example has just under 13,000 miles, and is located in Rhode Island. The seller indicates that it is not totally stock, but can include some of the original pieces with the sale. The opening ask for this bike is $5,500, with a reserve in place. That might be a bit high for a starter, as there have been no bids as of yet.
From the seller:
Own a piece of history with this rare vintage bike. Not many were made and few are still around. This bike is in great shape and has low mileage below 13,000 Miles. Never raced and some parts are not original as listed in the condition section.
