Two Stroke Monster- ’85 Yamaha RZ 500

Warning!

This post is in our archives. Links in this post have been updated to point to similar bikes available to bid on eBay.

Location: San Antonio, Texas   Mileage: 22,700   Price: Auction, BIN $10,900

85 RZ500

The Yamaha RZ500 is a popular ride here on RSBFS. A four cylinder, 500cc two stroke monster, the RZ500 gets the respect it deserves cause it’s a bad ass machine of a by-gone era. The fact it was never legal here in the U.S. ads to the legendary status as this bike is made of pure unobtanium, or at least mostly pure.

The seller doesn’t provide a ton of information, but here it is:

Selling my 1985 RZ500.  It has been restored and is in excellent condition.   It is the ultimate 2 stroke motorcycle.  Trying to make room in my garage.  I have all import information and complete portfolio on the motorcycle (clear Texas title).  Ready to ride! Starts in one kick every time.  Serious inquiries only.  Please don’t bid if you have less than 10 purchases.  Please call if you have any questions or require any additional pictures.

Not a lot of pics either, but here they are-

The seller states that the bike has been restored and runs well. The windscreen looks non original but it also has a killer solo seat. Mileage isn’t too bad, especially if the maintenance and restoration work has been done. All in all, looks like a good example of a rare bike.

As I’ve said in previous posts, they ain’t gonna make any more of these. So if you’ve been looking, you better make your play sometime soon. And if that time is now, go place your bid!

  • Price seems kind of high for the mileage and no aftermarket chambers or other goodies. At least the Porsche in the background shows he’s into speed.
