Weekend Auction Updates: OW01, RZ350, NS400R, MC21, 999R

Yamaha OW01 FZR750R for sale

The Automania OW01 is back on eBay. This one has been relisted twice since we first posted it and failed to sell with a high bid of $26,500 on the last auction. This time it wears a $28k buy-it-now, which is $2k less than the listing price on their website.


Yamaha RZ350 for sale

This RZ350 is one of our Featured Listings, which failed to sell in it’s first auction with a high bid of $5800. The current bid is $5100 with about 5 days remaining.


Honda NS400R for sale

We first noticed this Honda NS400R on eBay in February and it’s been relisted a few times but no takers at $6500 no reserve, which frankly surprises me. Here is the original post.


Honda NSR250 MC21 for sale

Speaking of surprises, this NSR250R MC21 we posted on Thursday has since had a buy-it-now added of $8500, which seems strong to me. Current high bid is $4100 with 3 days remaining.


2005 Ducati 999R for sale

Last but not least, this 2005 Ducati 999R was posted in our classifieds and is now on eBay for the same price of $17800.

1990 Yamaha OW01 FZR750RR with the Factory Race Kit available in Grants Pass, Oregon

Update 4.13.2014: This one is back on eBay after failing to sell with a high bid of $26,500. It now wears a $28k buy-it-now. -dc

1990 Yamaha FZR750RR For Sale

We don’t get the chance to share Yamaha FZR750RR’s too often with a production run of just 500 worldwide. Even more rare, I can’t say I’ve ever seen one with the factory race kit! Since Grants Pass is only a 3 hour drive for me I decided to go down to AutomaniaGP to check this one out in person. I met the owner Ted and we talked for several hours that afternoon and I can tell you he’s one of us: passionate, professional, and eager to talk about sportbikes. He’s assisting a collector move some rare pieces and this OW01 is one of them.

from Automania:

This particular bike has an interesting history. It was first sold new in the early 90’s to Norman Tietz by Sioux Cycle Shop in Mandan, North Dakota. Before even leaving the dealership, the bike was rolled into the shop and a Factory Race Kit was installed. The parts that we can see are the Rear Swing Arm, Quick Release Rear Axle, Dry Clutch, Magnesium Roller Flat Slide Mikuni Carburetors, Ohlin’s forks and Ohlin’s Race Rear Shock. A set of Marchesini Wheels were installed with Brembo Calipers. Included with the YCE kit were valves, crankshaft, cams, pistons, rods and a Short Ratio Gear Box. We have boxes and parts that make it more then plausible that these parts were installed at that time but there is no paperwork proving this. The bike definitely has a Short Ratio Transmission that is the only way the Dry Clutch can be installed. The current owner has had the bike since the late 90’s.

Make sure to visit the auction as there is much more detail provided and additional pictures as well. Good luck with the sale Ted!

Fogarty Connection? 1989 Yamaha FZR750R OW01

1989 Yamaha FZR750R OW01 for sale

Today Dennis from Denmark forwards us this modern sportbike legend, the the Yamaha OW01 homogolation special. Produced in limited numbers it featured a very peaky 5 valve 750cc engine that breathed through huge flat-slide carbs and was mated to a close ratio gearbox. Ohlins rear shock and fully adjustable suspension up front made it one of the best on the track. Power output stock was a claimed 119bhp and it weighed just over 400lbs.

This particular example was recently treated to a restoration and featured in the November issue of Practical Sportbikes. The seller goes on to describe a story associated with this particular bike and that it may have originally been given to Carl Fogarty by Yamaha. While the seller notes he has not been able to credibly verify this information, it’s seems plausible. What I do know is that offered for £11,995 (~$20k USD), this sounds like a great buy even if shipping is required.

from the seller:

1989 Yamaha FZR750R OW01 following a 2 year fastidious detailed restoration which is fully detailed in Practical Sportsbikes’ magazine article and ride test of issue 37, November 2013. One of an original run of only 500 bikes produced worldwide to homologate it for the new World Superbikes series, this example is really stunning.

The bike has had an extensive and detailed restoration over the past two years costing thousands of pounds and taking many hundreds of hours. It’s now complete and has a current MoT for UK riding, long road tax and comes with the elusive genuine toolkit and owners manual.

The work done has replaced every seal, bush, bearing and consumable on the chassis and those requiring replacement in the engine. This includes chain, sprockets, all caliper pistons and seals, wheel bearings, brake lines, Ohlins shock rebuild, hard chroming and fork rebuilds, brake disks, you name it, it’s been done and the bike is immaculate as can be seen in the PS magazine article and the photos here.

In addition, when I bought the bike I was told it has history relating to Carl Fogarty although as I haven’t yet been able to substantiate these claims, treat the information as “interesting” for the time being. Having said that there are some changes on the bike from standard that are very intriguing and may lend more weight to the story of brief ownership by Foggy.

The story has it that before the 1992 TT, Yamaha gave Fogarty a road based OW01 to familiarise himself with. Carl at that stage of his career would sell everything a sponsor gave to him, and so the OW01 was alleged to have been sold on to a member of his 1992 pit crew.

Japanese Spec 1988 Yamaha OW01 Available in Australia

Yamaha OW01 for sale

From the same seller in Australia with the two RC30’s for sale, he’s also offering this very tidy Japanese market OW01. These models are slightly restricted and can be spotted easily by the flush mounted headlights. Nontheless, with 500 produced worldwide it’s still a very collectable motorcycle. It has an opening bid of $13k AUD, which comes to about $12,200 USD. Being a 25 year old bike it should be relatively easy to register here in the states as a classic. How much is shipping from Australia?

from the seller:

In very good condition for its age with low km’s in OEM condition with just 17,000km. I purchased it 3 years ago and have only ridden it once before being placed into storage.

The only thing needed before rego would be a service, battery and a new relay for the indicators (not flashing) which is a standard Yamaha part. Tyres are virtually brand new

It has been part of my collection for many years but it should be ridden – the future owner will be very happy with it.

Why Paint it in Black ?? Yamaha OW01 (in Switzerland)

The colors on this one are all wrong. But below the fairing lies the real thing: a truly rare Yamaha FZR 750R aka the OW01. The price is modest with a BIN set at 8300 $ and having covered just 13.000 km.

Go for the bike, stay for the tulips: 1990 Yamaha FZR 750RR OW01 in Holland

FZR750RR_1

Currently located in The Netherlands, here is a second gen 750RR with approximately 12,763 miles. This is one of the more coveted “homologation” racers we see on RSBFS, although being in Europe might make it a bit more difficult for US-based investors.

1990 Yamaha FZR750RR OW01 for sale on eBay

FZR750RR_4

Like the vaunted Honda RC-30, the OW01 was built to allow Yamaha to go Superbike racing with something special. These homologation machines are pretty close to being true “racebikes for the street” – remove the lights, turn signals and license plate and hit the track! The factory Superbikes were far more exotic than the homologated bikes, but even so they were based on these limited production machines.

FZR750RR_3

From the seller:
From private collection, very original Yamaha OW01 from the second generation. As new with only 20.540 km (not miles!). All service is done (oil, brake fluids, sparkplugs, filters, etc.) Ready to go! Original delivered to Belgium so with Belgium paperwork, first registered in 1995.

FZR750RR_2

The seller is located in Holland, but the bike will be delivered to Belgium (hint: try the beer there – it’s fantastic). It all comes down to price. This bike is being offered for an opening ask of $14,000 – with absolutely no takers thus far. Is the OW series not that interesting anymore, is the price out of line, or is it simply too far away from most buyers? You tell me. Check out the auction here, then jump to the comments and share your thoughts. Free RSBFS coffee mug for the best comment!

Up For Grabs – Yamaha FZR 750R OW01 Track Bike (Switzerland)

The Yamaha FZR750R is one of the rarest production exotica of the 90s. Probably the most daring serial bike Yamaha ever built, it was assembled in small numbers (about half of Honda RC30 volumes).

OW1_brochure_2

These bikes, also commonly known by their Yamaha racing bikes model code OW1, are either found in new condition in somebody’s collection or were raced.

708243666_3_Big

Clearly the sample available in Switzerland, belongs the category that saw more track tarmac than traffic lights. If you are a collector that’s not what you are looking for. Instead, if you either have already a street or track ready OW01 and want to have a full set of spare parts (otherwise hard to source), or always dreamed to turn up at the weekend track day and impress your mates with a real exotic piece of history, than this might be for you. With a very modest asking price of about 2000 EUR, this 1989 Yamaha former track tool is well worth it. With the old school riding position, low seat, low handlebar, large tank, up in front of your chest, the 24 year old special is undoubtedly very sexy.

708243666_2_Big

Personally I would give it a fresh fiberglass “suit” including a proper paint job, sort it out mechanically, (in case there is a need), and load it up on the trailer for the special occasions of some classic Superbike track event. Check out on this video not related to bike on sale how a FZR750R sounds (listen when it hits 6000RPM):

What would you do with this ? If this ad was available in the UK, I reckon it would sell within minutes. The bike comes with the original paperwork and is a clean one (no grey or black import). It was first registered in 1993. The owner doesn’t say much about it and I wonder if he has some of the original trim parts. That would make this deal an absolute steal.
