2006 Yamaha R1 LE #346 of 500

Yamaha R1 LE 50th Anniversary Edition on

This particular example has 0 miles (not sure how that was pulled off) and is being offered at a considerable discount off the MSRP of $18,000.00. So my gut feeling is that if this is maintained in the current state it is in, it can only go up as the supply comes down. As I scour the internet daily looking for RSBFS these are still available with lowish miles and Alex even came across one that was still in the crate, but we all know supply will go down as time passes

1 2345

There really shouldn’t be much to say regarding a bike with 0 miles other than “being sold as new”, but the seller does give some insight as to how it has been stored and cared for over the past 3 years.

Stored in a controlled environment and satisfaction is guaranteed or your money back! – less any shipping charges.

To sum it up:

It has Marchesini wheels, Ohlins forks and shock, Brembo master cylinder, slipper clutch and a titanium exhaust all of which make it as much of a Replica Racer as any other one on the market.

This bike looks to be a flawless example of a limited production Superbike. Now I know that producing 500 of any LE bike doesn’t exactly put it in the ultra rare category, but this one begs to be purchased and put on a shelf like a barrel of Pappy Van Winkle and let time do it’s part.

First up is a good looking

Bike information from the seller:

My Yamaha RZ350 1988 in A1 plus condition.The motor is full rebuilt (Cost me $1800.00)
The CLutch is new + Stearing bearing + Brake + fork seal + seat + battery etc. I put more than $4000.00 (I have all the invoice) on it.
I also done full paint like original except the side pannel near the seat. The gas tank receive acid treatment.
The paint job is not perfect but not far. It cost me with the sticker $1250.00
So i put aroung $5250.00 on it. Any question write to me using contact seller.
Also injection is A1 working perfectly.
It start on first kick. Everything work perfectly

This looks like it could be a ton of fun on the open road.

===============================================================================

Next up is a as well. Both of these gems are for sale by the same owner in Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada.

This RG250 was listed on RSBFS back in August and is still for sale.

Quotes from the seller:

with 15 000 km (9000 miles)
This bike, when i bought it 2 years ago cost my $3900.00 and i put more than
$4000.00 to make it perfect. There is New Original Gas Tank and one side pannel.
There is a scratch on front fender back side.
Carburator, brake,tires,seat (front and back), mono seat, battery are new.
It start on first kick. Everything work perfectly.
I have all the invoice and evaluation price for this bike is more than $14000.00 is this condition

The seller seems to have a lot of $ into restoring these little bikes and it shows. Back in August I believe the RG was for sale on ebay for 4,500, but that may have been a starting price. Both have B.I.N prices of $5,300.00 so if you or your significant other has a cool 2 stroke on the wish list, these could be under the tree by Christmas.

Reader Submissions of the Week Past Two Weeks!

I’m going to have to figure out a new system for reader submissions with so many great finds hitting my inbox! I’ve started this posts twice already and haven’t been able to finish it!

First my apologies to those who sent auction items that have since passed. We really appreciate your submissions and always try hard to get them listed, but the entire RSBFS team has been swamped with real world job duties.

But enough of that, on to the bikes that are still available that have been sent in by readers.

Jim M. has sent in two bikes, and they’re both delicious in two very different ways. First is this . It has a supercharged Harley V-Rod engine!

His second submission is this very cool :

Will sent me this really well prepared FZR400 track bike:

Finally, Mike L. forwarded this beaut on: It’s Aaron Gobert’s Formula Extreme Championship bike from 2002-2003 fitted with an R1 motor and CA title!

Many, many thanks to the readers who have picked up the slack while we’ve been away! I’ve got a couple more posts to crank out that I hope to have up soon: RS250, another great collection becomes available for sale, and the RSBFS Holiday store opens Wednesday night. Stay tuned!

2006 Yamaha R1 Limited Edition–Still in the crate

Again, I know R1s aren’t rare but, the LEs are and this one is still in the crate.  Located in Cedar Hills, Oregon is a 2006 Yamaha R1 Limited Edition in unused condition.  To quote the seller:

I have a 2006 Yamaha YZF-R1 Limited Edition for sale. This is one of only 500 ever produced, and still in the original crate at my warehouse. It’s in pristine condition, has never turned a wheel except maybe after it rolled off the assembly line and into it’s shipping container.  This bike sold for $18,000 new, and I purchased it primarily as a collector’s item never intending to use it. A nice display piece for sure, but would be great for weekend rides, or track days for someone who wants one of the best all time sportbikes, unmatched for it’s speed, powerful engine and superb handling.  The bike is still in the crate, but I will be happy to assemble and service it for the new owner. I am a career Honda, Yamaha, Kawasaki, and Suzuki tech.  A factory service manual, owner’s manual, and Limited Edition R1 tool kit will be included with purchase.

The asking price is $12,995.  So, if you missed the Limited Editions around the first time or you’re a very serious collector, this might be the bike for you.  Sorry, no photos.  See the Craigslist ad here.

1990 Yamaha FZR400 in Medford for $2500

This is a pretty good looking example for only $2500. Oh yeah, it only has 5k miles too! I know there are a handful of Pacific Northwest followers in here, not to mention Doug is an owner, so naturally I had to post right away:

1990 Yamaha FZR400 on Medford Craigslist

yamaha_fzr400fzr400

quote from the listing:

1990 yamaha fzr 400 only 5k miles, with aluminum delta box frame AND swingarm. only imported for 3 years and the 1990 is the only year with a delta box swingarm. very rare and unique bike. rated best ultra lightweight superbike of all time… even by todays standards. $2500.

The black plastics on this one remind me of my old FZR600 from college. Good memories and I’ve always heard the 400 was more than a match for the 600 with the lighter frame. I can practically feel the Citibank cash advance jumping out of my wallet right now!

1985 Yamaha RZ500

Located in San Jose, California is a California titled and registered 1985 Yamaha RZ500. This bike has 7,000 miles and the pictures seem to reflect this in condition. The asking price seems a very fair $8,995. See this RZ on Craigslist here.

Also, if you’re looking for a RZ500 project, see this one in Lincoln, California.  The seller states that he is done with the project and is selling as-is.  The asking price is $7,500; making the above bike seem even a bit better.  See this bike on Craigslist here.

1992 Yamaha FZR250R

Located in Palmdale, California is a titled and registered 1992 Yamaha FZR250.  This bike looks to be in decent condition, the seller doesn’t go into much detail about any issues the bike may have.  At $7,000 however, I would expect this bike to be absolutely perfect.  If this small displacement, inline four, strikes your fancy see it on Craigslist here.
