1999 Yamaha YZF-R1: 165-miles

Wed, 05 Dec 2012 00:00:00 -0800

This is what auctioneers would call an 'investment grade vehicle'. I'd call it a bit of a waste. This 1999 Yamaha YZF-R1 has only covered 165-miles since new, that's an average of 12.6 miles a year..

Still, if you want a pristine example of an early R1, they don't come much better.

Yours for £9,500. Ouch. Can you spot any non-original parts on it?
