Description

Due to numerous time-wasters who haven't completed this is now a very low start price NO RESERVE AUCTION! 

This is a very rare opportunity. TZ500's very rarely come onto the market.  

This bike has been the subject of a no expense spared year long restoration as I was planning to keep this as my own bike but due to a change of plans (purchase of a historic race car which has to be paid for now!) it has to be sold IMMEDIATELY. so is priced way under market value.  Please only bid if you have the funds to pay by cash or bank transfer within 3 days of end of auction. Unlike many it is a genuine Yamaha 4A0 frame and swing arm (frame number photo available to serious buyer)The bike was taken down to a bare frame. which was blasted. checked and then professionally re-painted (not powder).  The bike came from Japan and was fitted with a TZ500 JPX magnesium Non-Powervalve type engine with New old stock carbs (internals are the same as a standard TZ500 so if you wanted to put it back to standard it wouldn't take much. just heads/barrels and main cases. I know where there are original cases for sale). The engine was stripped. checked and re-assembled by Nigel Everett (photos available to serious buyer). Thousands and thousands of pounds has been spent on new replacement parts. including:Brand new Marvic Mag wheels (hugely expensive but no worries about old mag wheels)Brand new genuine Yamaha TZ500 fuel tank (again hugely expensive)Brand new genuine Yamaha TZ500 fuel tap (again. so expensive!)Brand new genuine Yamaha TZ500 Mag master cylindersBrand new genuine Yamaha TZ500 tacho and temp GaugeBrand new genuine Yamaha TZ500 rear caliperBrand new front and rear brake hosesBrand new rear caliper adapterBrand new radiatorBrand new swing arm pivot and rear spindleBrand new triple clamps and stemBrand new discs and carriersBrand new gearshift parts and foot pegsBrand new head bearings (these are impossible to find and very expensive)Brand new seat. fairing and screenFairing professionally paintedBrand new Avon tyresBrand new chainFar too many new small but rare and expensive parts to mention!Genuine Yamaha works magnesium steering damperHas the correct TZ500 mag throttle and clutch perchThere are a few minor items to finish off and no exhausts (I have a quote to get a set made but the buyer may have their own preference. )There won't be another chance to buy a genuine Yamaha TZ500 for this price. let alone one which has had this amount spent on it (it is unlikely it would be possible to source these new old stock parts again regardless of price!)
