Replica, Shmechlica: 1992 Harris Yamaha YZR500

God only knows how many hours have been spent by RZ500 owners around the world trying to turn their rides into an all conquering YZR500.  Looks wise, some have come pretty close.  Mechanically, well YZR unobtanium isn’t usually found on Ebay.  Apparently this time it is.  A mere 75,000 GBP can make you the owner of a 1992 Harris/Yamaha YZR500.  It is about as close to works YZR500 you can get without breaking into Wayne Raineys living room.  If you are scratching your head, these were the grid fillers of the early 90’s.  Harris and ROC were provided YZR500 engines to stick in frames of their own designs.  Harris 500’s were produced in much smaller numbers than the ROC versions.

 No smoother big bang engine here my friends.  It should be more than enough to wad yourself up by the third turn.

 More the work Harris did.

The audio is provided by Yamaha.  I’m sure the customer engines didn’t get 100% of the factory tricks.  It sure would be interesting to pull apart though.

Check it out on Ebay U.K.

  • Oh. My. God.
    Screamer engine (vs. big bang firing order) = high side city. Imagine what this must feel like when it hits the powerband coming out of a third gear corner! Sadly, the seller certainly isn’t shy when it comes to asking price, meaning this is just a fantasy listing. At today’s exchange rate 75,000 GBP= $115,109.73. Never happen.

  • SCHWINGGGGGG!!!!!!

  • Goodness me. That is pure sex. An’ just look at those slicks. Somebody rode this baby hard before she was put out to pasture. *SWOON*

  • same bike sold for 50k Euro about 5 years ago on ebay UK. He did some restoration work, but he also knows what it is and isn’t gonna give it away for cheap.

  • A ROC YZR500 sold for 75K Euro 3 years ago, so he’s probably in the ball park. Not that’s I’ve been looking or keeping track……

  • His choices in paint and graphics are absolutely juvenile and poor for a $115,000 bike. Let’s hope the work done on the rest of it that we can’t see, isn’t.

  • I think it’s overpriced considering that Kenny Roberts is asking “only” 200k for a beautiful factory works 1996 Marlboro YZR.

  • guess I could sell my house and live in a cardboard box. Then I’d have to get another box to use as a garage for the bike too.

  • After Jan’s comment, don’t let anyone tell you RSBFS readers aren’t great thinkers.
