New addition to the garage...
« on: September 03, 2017, 09:41:20 PM »
I've been looking for an RZ500 for a few years and ran across this one almost 2 months ago. Its taken awhile to get it here (Ohio) from Medford Oregon but it finally showed up last Monday. Engine/suspension all stock(save for the chambers). AirTech fairings, R6 front brakes. I've only had time to take it for 1 (quite illegal) ride and everything works as it should on a 31 year old 2 smoke. Needs a thorough going thru this winter. I was looking for a rider that wouldn't break the bank.... I believe I found one  :mrgreen:

Congrats, that's a nice ride! Is it a Canadian import or Japan direct?

Thanks gentleman.

Its Canadian in origin with 52X VIN.  It been in the States for some years. Its been titled in Florida, Texas and Oregon. My plan is the  last place its ever titled is Ohio.
