1985 Yamaha RZ 350 with nice upgrades for sale in Chico California.
This RZ belongs to a reader who asked us to help him sell it. So naturally we going to do our best to accommodate the request.
From time to time we come across RZ’s that are all stock, with super low miles, and are meant to be in a museum and enjoyed by paying patrons on a Sunday afternoon. This RZ is a fine looking piece of machinery, but has been enjoyed by riding it over the years and has been loved on by its most recent owner. Check out what the owner has to say about his baby. Owner is asking $4,500.00 and it seems to be on the lower end of RZ’s we’ve posted. So, if you’re interested in a RZ that you can ride and not feel guilty about here is the Craigslist ad contact information.
The motor has been freshened and has 30mm Mikuni’s prepped by spec 2. Never been wrecked that I can see and I am an expert as far as that goes. The bike starts and runs perfectly. The paint job is not original but it was done well. It was done long before I purchased the bike and I’ve just kept it clean and waxed. There are a few chips here and there but there are no dents. The bike gets stares every time I ride it.
I enjoy posting up these older 2 strokes because it gives me a reason to dig around on youtube and find videos of these bikes on the dyno or doing high speed passes. Either one makes the hair raise on the back of my neck and really gets amp’d up.
Here’s one of an RZ at full tilt on the dyno. It’s worth a look and a listen.
This next video is worth a look as well. The rider has his RZ dialed in and takes it to red line in the lower 4 gears and it screams almost as much as Ivan from FFDP.
