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!!!

What does Valentino Rossi do when he’s not riding his Yamaha M1 around the best racetracks in the world? He relaxes at home in Tavullia, Italy, and rides motorcycles around his newly developed dirt track dubbed, “Rossi’s Ranch.” “It’s like a dream from when you’re a child,” says Rossi. “You hope at one moment you can buy your own racetrack.” It’s safe to say Rossi is financially stable enough at this moment in time to where he can make his childhood dream a reality.
