RZ, very nice original

Post by jools » Mon Sep 25, 2017 1:48 pm

It'll be sad to see this go, but my health forces sale. I'm putting it on here for a while before I advertise it.


'84 34J Yamaha RZ (RD LC2 in UK market) Approx 66,000ks.
Very good condition, original, not bodged or 'dolled-up for selling'. Runs nicely.
When I got this about 10 years ago it was in too good original condition to restore, so over the years I've carefully refurbished it, keeping it very original. The plastics were a bit shabby so I thoroughly restored them and painted with metallic silver 2-pack and 2-pack clearcoat. So the other paint, frame, tank etc is factory original.
A couple of small dings on the tank. New screen.
Well sorted mechanically. Bored and new pistons fitted.
A long list of detail things renewed, fixed improved etc. I've run it on club reg, so has had low use since I've had it.
Matching engine and frame numbers, all components are factory original apart from rear indicators and lower handlebars.
I have 350 cylinder barrels and cyl head for it, ready for conversion to 350.
(But I have to say, it's performance is great in 250 form. I've run this in groups including superbikes, and it is not at all 'embarrassed' at 'sane' speeds).
Rear suspension upgrade, using Yamaha R6 unit (original one will come with the bike. Front suspension upgrade -'Mikes XS' damper valves fitted. So it handles very well.
So whilst this bike may not be immaculate like a concourse restoration, it is very presentable, and almost 100% factory original and well sorted.
Bike is in Greendale, west of Melbourne.

PM me if you're interested, I'll be looking for something around $5000.
