1988 Yamaha FZR750 (RU)

Located in Denver, Colorado is a very nice 1988 Yamaha FZR750.  The seller states that it has a fresh clutch, fork seals, head set bearings, grips, K&N filters, oil, plugs, O-ring chain and more.  Owned by the same family for the last nine years.  Only 7,068 original miles.  The seller states that the bike is in perfect condition and the pictures agree with this.  See this fantastic FZR750 on Craigslist here.

1991 Bimota YB9 Bellaria buy-it-now for $8200.00

Here we have another Bimota for sale.  It seems as of late there have been a lot of these up for sale, but who’s complaining?  Not me, because I think they are really nice works of motorcycle art.

Check out all of the machined aluminum bits on this bike, they’re amazing! 

Now, if my memory serves me correctly the YB9’s cost over $10,000 in 91 which was a truck load of cash for a 600cc bike.  I believe the FZR600’s were going for $5,000 to $6,000 back in 91.  I compared it to the FZR because the YB9 uses the FZR 600 engine.  Obviously, they didn’t have the mystique that Bimota was offering either.  This bike is not in it’s original color, but has been done in a very tasteful Bimota type paint scheme.  Originally, these were offered in a very odd, light blue color that was not very appealing to sport bikers.  However, they did offer a rarity in that this bike has a digital dash, that was way ahead of the Japanese big 4.   
 

This YB9 is one of the rarest bikes in the USA (less than 5 ),even the world, as only 200 were made! It is a full restoration from Italy as I know it, possibly from the race series where Bimota won the 600 series 91-93.

 
I was unable to verify the above statement, but I’m sure some of our readers will be giving me the 411 on the bike as we have few Bimota followers out there.

1992 Yamaha FZR600

Located in San Francisco, California is a 1992 Yamaha FZR600 with 7,000 original miles.  FZRs, especially the 600s, aren’t that rare, but this one looks to be in above average condition with only seven-thousand original miles.  The bike may have been dropped on the right hand side judging by the marks on the intake below the “FZR” text–something to ask the seller about.  This example is stock except for an aftermarket rear shock and .95 Racetech springs in the front.  The bike is priced at a $2,600; which seems fair for a low mileage condition FZR.  See this bike on Bay Area Riders Forum here.

1989 Yamaha TZR 250 3MA For Sale in Vancouver, BC

Here’s a fantastic looking TZR250 in Vancouver on Craigslist for $4850 ($4427US):

quote from seller’s ad:

Up for sale, Pure 2 stroke fun! early 90’s GP style

– screams at high rpm
– kick start
– rear under-seat exhausts
– all factory original plastics, not a rebuilt, very highly collectable
– clean BC title, ready to be insured and ride
– very low ICBC annual insurance rate, I paid $335 for a full year fun!
– 23,xxxkm

Seems like a great opportunity for a Canadian buyer, and could be worth it for a U.S. buyer even without a street title. Unless you’re one of the few that seem to be able to work magic at the DMV, why not use it as a display piece until it’s 25 years old and then get it titled as a classic? I know that works for cars, I expect it works the same for bikes. Just seems too nice to track it and would be a very cool weekend back-road warrior!

3 Bimotas For Sale Right Now, Each Under $10k!

Here are some rare modern classics for sale on eBay for under $10k each. Let the Italian goodness begin:

Bimota YB5 For Sale

quote from seller’s eBay listing:

This lightweight cycle (from 208 units made in 1987) comprises classic Bimota tri-color design, Yamaha FJ1200 engine, robust 41.7 mm Marzocchi M1R forks, and Brembo (good enough for the Dr. Rossi) brakes, and lightweight Technomagnesio wheels, all in near perfect condition.

[…]

Here are some interesting facts about this motorcycle’s history:

1. Purchased from Nick Ienatsch, famous motorcycle journalist, racer and teacher at the Freddie Spencer Riding School.
2. This YB5 was owned by Nick’s father.
3. Includes original vinyl folder, including owner’s manual and warranty and service booklets. Also includes official workshop manual (two copies).
4. Purchased around May or June 2001
5. Excerpt from Bimota book regarding YB5 is enclosed.
6. This bike has been kept in push button, start up condition: the carbs are clean and the steel gas tank has had a properly applied rust proof treatment.


Bimota YB11 For Sale

quote from seller’s listing:

I purchased this from the original owner 4 yeas ago with 1900 miles. The previous owner took very good care of it and also replaced the tires with new Metzeler Rennsports at the time of sale. It has an upgraded Euro headlight and upgraded Ohlins rear suspension.

I have taken meticulous care of this machine. It is in mint condition, always garaged, covered and properly maintained. I actually change all the hydraulic fluids after each ride. I just performed a complete tune up with Amsoil synthetic fluids and a new OEM battery.

The paint work is all original, never dropped, scratched or touched up. The black portion of the lowers have been perfectly refinished due to lifting of the logo type decal.

I am including the OEM workshop manual with electrical wiring diagram as well as the parts microfiche and sales brochure. I have the passengers seat and rear foot pegs that are unused as well as 1 unused spare key. All the documents and paper trail from the original owner are also included.


Bimota SB6 For Sale

quote from the eBay listing:

One of only 700+ red, white and carbon SB6’s

Only flaw is touch up paint on chin of fairing and paint chips near kick stand (see photos)

From a later run of bikes with upgraded controls, rear sets, wheels, dash, gauges, strengthened body work, and exhaust system.

Vehicle Description

* GSXR 1100 water/oil-cooled
* All carbon fiber body, dashboard, fenders
* New battery
* Clean carbs
* Runs well
* Owner’s manual
* Marchesini wheels
* Massive beam frame
* Complete Brembo brake system – 320mm front disc
* Paioli carbon fiber front forks – Ohlins rear shock
* Original 4 into 2 into 1 into 2 undertail exhaust


All three are super delicious, but I think I’m most turned on by the YB11 with the super low miles and Yamaha Thunderace engine. Not that I could handle a monster like that, but it’d sure look great in my living room!

Thanks again to Doug for his spotting help!

1989 Yamaha FZR1000 with Only 3700 Miles!!

Doug tipped us off to another great find, a super low miles and original FZR1000! Check out this

1989 FZR1000 For Sale Low Miles1989 FZR1000 For Sale Low Miles1989 FZR1000 For Sale Low Miles1989 FZR1000 For Sale Low Miles

quote from seller’s eBay listing:

Up for bids is a 1989 FZR 1000. I ‘m the second owner of the bike and it has never been wrecked or ridden in the rain. The bike is completely original except for the rear tire. There are minor nicks and scratches on the bike but they are not that noticeable. There is a small scratch on the rear swingarm behind the pipe that was caused by sticking a slip on test pipe on. The test pipe turned and allowed it to contact the swingarm. The bike is ready for a rider or a new place to be stored. My asking price for the bike is $4000.00 obo.

Doug’s email was prefaced by, “Not sure if this meets your criteria but…” My response: Hell yes it meets my criteria! These aren’t that common anymore, and certainly not in this condition. And at just over $1 per mile, I think it’s a fantastic buy!

Thanks again Doug for a great submission!
