What a beauty ...

"however, the tires , brake pads, seals etc etc are 33+ years old, so indulging the inner Kenny right off the bat may not be a great idea" ...did make me smile!

I am watching this auction with some interest. I have 3 RZ500's for sale (along with my personal RZV) here in the States. I wonder if US buyers will go after this machine? Importing makes my head hurt. The motor should be torn down and refreshed (seals at a minimum) and the flawed bodywork sets it back a bit.

This one has <9k kms with cherry original bodywork and refreshed motor on std bore. http://www.lancegamma.com/Parking_Lot/McW_RZ/index.html

This one is even nicer with <2k kms, fresh std motor and cherry bodywork (all original with no cracks) and a spare set of wheels (installed. The original wheels with perfect rotors and original tires still present go with the bike). http://www.lancegamma.com/Parking_Lot/Near_New_RZ/index.html

One more is in the pipeline with fresh std motor and perfect new paint. I just can't see myself paying eBay's fees for the use of their site. They are approaching high end live auction house prices.

I am not so sure it wasn't just an emotional impulse buy that will be up for sale within the year.

If the buyer is expecting to get back his $28K then again the long wait for someone with $28K cash for what will essentially become a non-rider.

The RZ500 market is already a pretty small market. So these prices just shrink the market even further - especially if the buyers want to make a few bucks extra when they put them up for sale.

Three bidders over USD$20k. One winner at $22k because someone else bid a few dollars less. If anyone desires to have a superior bike with no signs of age, getting to this quality is not cheaper when starting with a lesser bike.

That is exactly right Rick, and we've discussed it here before. If you want perfection you pay for it up front or on later on when you do your own restoration. There is no way around it.

Anyone looking for cheap entry into the RZ500 world will be disappointed. I think those days are over and we are now seeing the RZ/RD/RZV500 heading in the same direction as the RG500. It won't be long before the NS400R heads in the same direction. Finish your collection now before it takes a lottery win to own all 3.

The fact that there are 2 bidders that failed to buy that bike suggests they are likely still in the market for a real nice one. In the last 10 years the market for these 3 GP Replicas has undergone a drastic change in Canada in both price and the availability of bikes in the marketplace here. Now if you even have a chance to get one you are lucky to be the one to get it. About 5 years ago my friends beautiful NS400 netted him $5000US on eBay in Canada and sold one year later for $10000US in the States after the buyer imported and plated it. The days of cheap GP Replicas from Canada feeding the US market are likely done now as values here are equalizing with world prices.
