Unique TZ: 1980 YAMAHA TZ 350 NICO BAKKER SPECIAL

Update 5.7.2012: First listed in December last year, this TZ350 is back and now $2k cheaper at $16k. Links updated. -dc

Here is a little something to distract you for a few minutes from your holiday shopping. I can’t say I”ve seen many TZ350’s for sale and especially one with a Nico Bakker frame. The bike has some race history to it but the seller doesn’t specify if it was recent history or back in the bikes prime.

It sounds like the TZ350 was the sh*t back in the 70’s depending on the model year. Here is an excellent site with some tidbits on the bikes history. Be sure to check out their page on all the companies that built frames. It is quite a list. Here is a link to the Nico Bakker website itself. Be sure to scroll down and check out their RMZ250 Moto3 bike.

The asking price is a hefty $18,000. I was reading a thread discussing the bike and guys were going back and fourth if the bike is worth that much. I think the best insight came from one poster who mentioned he has not seen a TZ350 for sale for less than $10,000. I can’t confirm or deny. Maybe if it sits long enough the seller will open it up to offers.

You can see the auction here.

  • Damn. Almost wish I hadn’t decided to build my SV’s motor from stock specs to 90hp and then invested in making a 2000 TZ125 race ready.

    Makes me want to go do some AHRMA racing.

  • @CCS979; You should be AHRMA racing! 🙂

  • so shoiuld i though… 🙁

  • The TZ 350 was the choice back in the day but took a back seat when the TZ 750 came along. This bike is unusual with the Nico Bakker frame and a host of other mods that make it unique but appears to be in rough “as raced” condition. The seller in Florida says the bike won four Latin championships. Really? What kind of championships, when and by who?

    I was told by the seller the bike comes “as is” with no spares although any “championship team” would certainly have a host of spares for their campaign. I also saw the seller listing several TZ 350 barrels on EBAY and they apear to be offering other TZ parts for sale as a businesss. $18,000.00 for just the bike? Sounds like all the money… and then some.

    I see this bike as a beatifull race horse that was riden hard and put away wet. Could it be made track worthy or to race again? Yes! If you have the time and the money.
