Originally available in Canada as one of those morsels of forbidden sport fruit taunting US riders from just over the border, this 1985 Yamaha RZ500 now resides in the US of A down Florida way and is looking for a new home. Sporting updated expansion chamber pipes, a steering damper and a few more stickers than your average display queen, this RZ looks to be largely uncut and in good shape for the approximately 18,600 miles shown on the all KM clocks. The big V4 RZ two-stroke is getting more and more rare as the years go by, so finding one to love and to hold can be a daunting task.

From a pricing perspective the big RZ is an ever-appreciating asset. The market has yet to top out on these, and we have seen them hovering just under – as well as over – the $20k mark for some time. This particular example is being offered in a Buy It Now only format, with the price set at $25,150. The seller is open to offers, however, so there may be room to move if you are looking to move one of these smokers into your stable. You can check out all of the details here, and Good Luck!!
This ebayer comes up w/ some neat motorcycles on his listings. Sorry, I lost any sympathy for “having” to sell it to buy a Dodge Demon 170. Finger violin . . .
Why is this suddenly linking to a 1973 Kawasaki H2 750? I had this on my eBay watch list and even there is is showing the Kawasaki and not the RZ500. It’s not the link that is bad, but something else has happened.
Maybe he found out the Dodge dealer has a crazy high $ mark-up on the Demon 170 and decided not to buy it, so not sell the Yamaha. I have heard the dealer mark-up has been pure robbery on these cars, sad.
