Hey Earl?
« on: December 04 2019, 06:54:11 PM »
What do you think of this?  Something seems fishy and it's not your date!  My 85 has less miles and no patina on it.  I guess mine should be worth $18k. :rolleyes; https://www.ebay.com/itm/1984-Yamaha-RZ350/283689898795?hash=item420d3c532b:g:ZM8AAOSwgrBd29 5l

Good god.   There were three idiots battling it out until one dropped out at $9500.


I have a feeling this bike will pop back up due to a non-paying bidder.


Also, my '91 YSR (and the '89) will take issue with that ''last street-legal two-stroke ever offered for sale in the USA'' statement.

I went to pick up an old school fiberglass "manx" dune buggy go kart body from this little Asian dude named Charlie here in NJ.

He had 3 rz350's sitting there, one modified with all R1/R6 suspension and some other stuff, Turns out he raced them back home in Singapore and raced with Kenny and Randy!  This dude was super cool and laid back and I could have talked to him for hours, but my kid was getting bored.

"King" Kenny Roberts, super duper Yamaha rider from the ? 70s? 80s?


Google his name. Google knows a little more than me.


But, IT was cool to hear that this dude in NJ got to ride with two of the best in the world.
