Update 1.14.2011: Now on Craigslist for $4k. Thanks for the heads up Joe!
Located in Louisville, KY this bike belongs to and was submitted by Kelly who is a RSBFS.com daily reader. Thank you for supporting our site and sending us your bike to post.
We’ve had a few of these before, but I have to admit it’s been difficult finding the proper information for this bike.
Here’s what I know:
These were the pre-cursor to Yamaha’s famed OW01 FZR 750RR Homologation
There were only 200 of them made to satisfy the AMA Homologation rules
There are very few left as most of them were raced just like any other LE Homologation production model
Owner has the following to say:
This bike is #169 of only 200 made for the US market. To homologate the FZR for AMA racing, Yamaha had to bring 200 street-spec 750 into this country. This bike escaped the racetrack, instead becoming a garage queen. The bike is entirely stock. Never safety wired, never put on the track. As you can see in the pictures, the only damage is a crack in the fairing at the right side front turn signal and a little bit of clearcoat peeling off the left side of the solo cowl. The only mechanical issue on the entire bike is that the button which resets the odometer came off years ago. Last year I had the valves checked and the carbs synched. This bike runs beautifully. If you are very serious about this bike I will be glad to make a short video showing start-up from cold. Nothing to hide, like I said it runs flawlessly. I also have an original Yamaha shop manual and various magazine articles from when the bike was released.
Looks like Kelly has taken great pride in owning this bike because by looking at the pictures one wouldn’t know it has 25,304 miles on the clock, which is low for a 22 year old motorcycle. I also think it says a lot about the seller and bike when the owner is willing to produce a video showing a cold start and idle. So if your a Yamaha guy and like what you see,
