RZ and RD are basically the same. Different name/graphics  for different markets.
RZV was Japan only with aluminum frame and other aluminum parts throughout bike.

There is one up in Canada, Porthope ONtario for 12500 Canadian about 10K American and I feel that is way over priced but there are always some people that will pay too much for these bikes. :(
If you do what is in front of you and choose to do the right thing, then you will always be where your suppose to be.

Like most things, it's all about location. The market where I'm at is consistently around 25-30% higher on average for an air-cooled RD. The more exotic 2T bikes command a much higher price because of the fact that they were never allowed here legally. The "unicorn" having a valid CA title and registration can pretty much get whatever they want because of the exclusivity. The bottom line is: What's it worth to someone who's looking for that bike?

What would be the average or "decent" ball park price one would pay for a 1985 RZ500 that is a bit beat-up and has 25K miles on the clock?
