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:

-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

1984 RZ350 Full Effort SpecII Motor:

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.

1993 Yamaha TZ250

I realize I posted three track bikes yesterday but I hope you can bare one more!  Located in Northern Nevada is a recently restored 1993 Yamaha TZ250.  This bike has been fully gone through and only one race practice and track day since it’s freshening.  If you’re looking for a TZ track bike this one should not be missed.  See the restoration thread on Bay Area Riders Forum here, and the sale thread here.

1973 Yamaha TZ250A

Located in Libertyville, Illinois is a gorgeous 1973 Yamaha TZ250A.  This bike has been meticulously restored to original specification and looks brilliant.  The motor has recently been gone through and the seller claims it only needs tires to be vintage race ready.  Vintage race bikes are attractive because they will always be competitive compared to a newer bike which will become out-dated. See this beautiful race bike on eBay See the eBay ad here

EDIT:  This bike sold for $9,987 with fourteen bids on 07/01/09.


Also, avialable in Tokyo, Japan but listed on eBay U.S.A. is a 1980 Yamaha TZ250G.  This bike is claimed to be completely original, only having one owner.  Being an original bike, this one isn’t perfect but carries some patina and wear–especially on the left-hand side faring.  Seller is located in the US and claims shipping isn’t a problem.  See this one owner TZ on eBay here.

EDIT: This bike failed to sell on 06/27/09 with zero bids and a starting price of $6,000.
