This RG500 is up for auction a second time after a failed listing that is described in the seller description. Unfortunately it’s unlikely you’ll be able to title the bike in California. The seller states it has a Florida title which should transfer in most states. Bidding is over $22k at this point and reserve is met. Good luck to buyers and seller in the remaining 5 days of the auction!
from the seller:
I brought the bike up to Rick Lance in 2015 and had him redo the suspension with his own shock and ride height adjustment link. The front forks were also rebuilt. It is setup for bigger guys over 200 lbs. Also, his clutch kit, his petcock kit, and his air filter kit were installed to replace the old ones.
It is in beautiful shape. It does have an aftermarket belly pan and an aftermarket upper fairing. Rick wasn’t sure who the manufacturer was but he said it was high quality. The stock pipes are in beautiful shape.
Rick commented that the bike rides incredibly well. In fact, he told me it was in his top 10 best riding Gammas. The motor has not been opened.
The current mileage equates to 13,021 miles. I have only ridden the bike 30-40 miles since Rick worked on it.
The bike has been sitting for a few years. The fuel was removed. It has been leaking a bit of 2 stroke oil. It needs the oil check valves replaced. There are a couple ways to do this. You can add check valves inline or replace the ball valves in the carbs. Both Lance Gamma and RG500 have them. I was going to bring it up to Rick and have him replace them, but unfortunately he passed away in 2019. His shop was bought out and now is in California, so it’s not easy for me anymore to bring the bike to have it worked on anymore.
I do have the stock air box. I have a repair manual. I do not have the old suspension parts that Rick took off.
