THE BIKE SPECIALISTS, TRADING STANDARD AWARD WINNERS. We have the pleasure of offering for sale our fantastic Yamaha RD500 YPVS. Sporting the stunningly rare Marlborough team racing livery this machine is an absolute credit to it's previous owner, this super example is in stunning show winning condition and has under gone a full nut and bolt restoration and now shows 0 miles. It offers an extremely rare opportunity to own a true full powered UK version (not to be confused with the restricted Japanese imports) of this legendary 2 stroke iconic Yamaha. The bike was restored by Gary Horton Classics and placed in his shop for many years on display and was one of only 100 examples that Yamaha commissioned bike paint specialists "Dream Machine" to paint in the Marlborough race colours. (as shown on the V5) Our bike is supplied with the original Yamaha hand book, full tool kit and various shields and medals won at various classic shows. This beautiful piece of rolling art will benefit from a full service and MOT prior to sale. This iconic 2-stroke, was at the forefront in the 1980's as one of the must have GP replica bikes. Yamaha looked at the success of the YZR500 and realised that a road-going version of this would sell well. The RD500LC YPVS was bred from the ground-up to be a race replica, and it was absolutely focused in its mission. Everything was lightened and stripped down for performance. People were in love with the 2 stroke V4 and Yamaha really hit the nail on the head with this motorcycle. 2 strokes don't get much better than this, and our example offers a once in a lifetime opportunity to own what must be, in our opinion, the best example of this 80's dream bike for sale in the world. Please do not hesitate to call us for any further details, a small deposit will secure this vehicle. UK and worldwide delivery options available.
