1979 Yamaha SR500r – Incredible Original Condition

Current California registration with original blue and yellow license plate.  3560 original miles.  The bike has always been stored indoors and is in impeccable condition.  As you can see from the photos, the bike is like new and is in no way ‘tidied up’ for sale.  There is no rust, dents or other damage hidden.  All decals, paint and seat are in perfect condition.

The bike starts on the first kick (once you get the hang of starting an SR) and runs like a top.  New tires,  new MotoBatt sealed battery and the rubber seal on the gas tank is the only work I have done after purchasing the bike from a friend last year.  A set of brake pads, full carb rebuild kit and other parts will be included in the sale.  A full set of related documents will come with the bike including original sale brochure, owner’s manual and a Clymer service manual plus a second original Yamaha key.

 This may well be the very best original example of an SR500r out there and it is ready to placed in any showroom worldwide.  Hope you like it and good luck!!!

Who To Watch In AMA Pro SuperSport

Thu, 13 Mar 2014

America’s road racing champions of tomorrow are racing in AMA Pro SuperSport today, and their season kicks off this weekend at Daytona International Raceway. With events on both Friday and Saturday, there are plenty of chances for glory for the 48 competitors entered. AMA Pro SuperSport is the most unpredictable class and the racing gives a chance for riders in the large fields to step up and prove they have what it takes. A great example is reigning AMA Pro GoPro Daytona SportBike Champion and current SuperBike pilot Cameron Beaubier, who cut his teeth in his two-victory, two-pole season in 2010.
