1985 Yamaha RZ350 For Sale in California1985 Yamaha RZ350 For Sale in California1985 Yamaha RZ350 For Sale in California1985 Yamaha RZ350 For Sale in California

quote from seller’s Craigslist ad:

You can see by the pictures how clean this bike it, but you need to see it in person to really appreciate it. Not only does it look sweet, it hauls ass! 30mm Mikuni carbs, Boyesen carbon reeds, and CRG bar end mirrors, were just put on. The cylinders have been ported & the pistons are 1 size bigger than stock. The pipes are Spec II, and has a Fox shock. The solo seat cowl, that alone is worth money. The Dunlop tires have less than 400 miles on them. The fairing was made in Japan, and I’m not too sure if it’s still available. Pretty trick looking, street fighter like.
There are no dents on the tank, 1 maybe 2 nicks, and there are no scratches. The miles 15,847 are original, I’m the second owner of this bike and I keep it covered to keep it clean and avoid the sun beating on it. It’s well worth 5,900, but I’m willing to take reasonable offers.

This bike sounds like it’s well sorted and ready to be enjoyed by it’s next owner. Checking prices of other RZ350’s we listed in the recent past show this price is about right.

Thanks for the heads up Roy!

Custom 1984 RZ350

Located in Pittsburg, California is a very cool custom 1984 RZ350 consisting of parts from a RZ/TZ/R6.  This bike is titled and registered.  Seller states that it is 95% complete and is asking what seems to be a fair $5,000.  The details as per the seller:

Chassis:
-JMC Top Braced 2″+ Swingarm
-Rich Oliver’s 2003 AMA winning TZ250 Forks, Revalved/Sprung & Ti Ni Coating by LE
-Oliver Racing 2003 TZ250 Nissin Front Calipers & Rotors
-Fox Shox Twin Clicker, Revalved/Sprung by LE
-Jim Lomas GP SS Pipes w\ Carbon Silencers
-Gilfrap Billet Rearsets
-1990 TZ250 Wheels (4.5×17 & 3.5×17) w\ Michelin Pilot Race H2 Tires
-1990 TZ250 Rear Caliper
-1984 Full Braced / Gusseted Frame, Titled and Plated
-1985 Wire Harness & CDI
-1999 R6 Tank, Subframe and Undertail

1984 RZ350 Full Effort SpecII Motor:
-SpecII Stage IV Porting

-Modified Pro Design Cool Head with Interchangeable Domes

Only 6 hours on the motor since being built. Requires 100 Octane Race Fuel with current domes but can be setup to run 92 Octane pump gas with included domes. Carbs will need new floats… I foolishly left the fuel petcock on when I went on a short vacation. The VP MR race fuel gummed up the carb bowls and floats. I have cleaned the throttle bodies extensively but will most likely have to replace the floats.

A very cool custom bike that appears to be at a very good price for the right person.  See the Craigslist ad here.

1985 Yamaha RZ350 Kenny Roberts

Located in Los Angeles, California is the rare color 1985 Yamaha RZ350, Kenny Roberts edition.  This bike has been well maintained and completely gone through.  This example claims to be completely stock except for the smoked windscreen, tires, and battery.  It sounds as if the majority of the rubber parts on this bike have been replaced only because of their age–which is a good thing.  The bodywork is completely original.  The seller states that the only defect is a small one on the tank decals.  This bike is California titled and registered.  Priced at $5,499, this bike is located at a dealer but not inflated in price just because of that fact.  See the Craigslist ad here.

1985 Yamaha RZ350

Located in Capitola, California is a Kenny Roberts replica 1985 Yamaha RZ350.  The RD/RZ350 line isn’t that hard to locate, nor is the Kenny Roberts edition, but what makes this example special is it’s claimed to be completely original and caries only 6,900 miles.  Seller claims stock air box, pipes, emissions equipment, both keys and a clean title.  The asking price of $5,500 reflects the condition.  If you’re looking for a special, original, RD/RZ make sure to check out this example.  See the Craigslist ad here.

1989 Yamaha RZ350

For you lucky northern residents we have a Canadian market 1989 Yamaha RZ350 located in Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada.  The seller claims that this bike has an unbelievable (it doesn’t look like it in the pictures) 29,000km (16k mi).  Shown in an excellent looking blue and yellow paint scheme, this bike looks showroom new–either it is, or the seller is good with a camera.  There are some evident scratches around the triple-clamp, but for being twenty years old, this bike looks almost perfect.  If I were a Canadian resident I would seriously consider this fine looking example.  See the eBay ad here.

1985 Yamaha RZ/RD350 With Nine Original Miles $9500

Were you unable to purchase a RZ350 new in ’84 or ’85?  Here is your second chance: Located in Danville, California is a 1985 Yamaha RZ350 with nine original miles.  The description seems to be pulled from Wikipedia, however, if the nine original miles are true and this bike is in showroom condition it should sell itself.  The asking price is about double what an average RZ350 would go for–but again, this is a nine mile bike.  If you’d like to add to your stable of prized, low mileage bikes, don’t hesitate to investigate this one–make sure to see records too.  See the San Francisco Bay Craigslist ad here.

A Pair of Classic Yamaha Two-Strokes For Sale: Yamaha RZ350’s

Many of the readers coming to this blog are looking for the Yamaha RZ500, and while I haven’t found one of those today, I have found two RZ350’s for sale here in the Pacific Northwest.

1984 Yamaha RZ350 For Sale on Craigslist Spokane

quote from the seller’s Craigslist post:

Spec 2 full fairing bodywork painted in the yellow/black color combo
Spec 2 expansion chamber exhaust
Mikuni 34mm carbs, custom billet intake with internal equalizer passage, pod airfilters, oversized reed cages and 4 petal reeds.
Adjustable steering damper, clip ons, billet tripple tree and fork brace.
Spec 2 rearsets
Fox clicker rear shock with remote reservoir
Re sprung front fork
Steel braided brake lines
Powdercoated frame

1984 Yamaha RZ350 For Sale on Craigslist Portland

quote from seller’s Portland Craigslist ad $3600:

the bike comes with a slew of extras.
* original 80’s full fairing kit with sqaire headlight conversion.
* extra tank
* extra tail
* extra front fender
* EXTRA ENGINE!!!

The bike has larger 30mm carbs with clamp on style k&n’s. Allspeed pipes and silencers. new chain, sprockets, clutch, battery and brake pads.

this bike is oil injected so there is no worrys at the pump when it comes to premixing the fuel.

it has a adjustable steering stabilizer and a fork brace.

the bike has 28k but has had a recent top end to freshen things up.

Neither one of these are perfect beauty queens. But I like the full faired bodywork installed on the first one. And the second one offers a ton of spares plus full fairing bodywork pieces and a spare engine! And both are $4k or less! Seems like an affordable way into the classic bike market before these start going up in price – and a ton of fun to ride in the meantime!
