    2000 R1/R7 replica



    Still can't quite believe I'm selling this amazing bike, but the sad truth is that I just don't enjoy riding on public roads much any more.
    Having a trophy in the living room, for its own sake, is not my thing. Granted, it was originally conceived and designed to be a show bike, but to my mind this motorcycle was always meant to be ridden.
    Otherwise, what's the point?

    For those not familiar with this unique machine's history...

    Donor bike was a (cosmetic damage only) repairable write-off 2000 model YZF R1 with ~20,000 kms on the clock.
    A small, dedicated team of enthusiasts (and PSB alumni) stripped the bike down to the very last nut & bolt and rebuilt it from the ground up.
    Pretty much all that remains from the original bike are the basic frame and engine. Gearbox was also completely rebuilt with OEM cogs and bearings.
    Literally no expense was spared in the process, but I understand that money spent on mods doesn't necessarily translate to resale value so I've set a realistic price.



    I bought it as an 'unfinished project' several years ago. Considering the work that had already been done at that stage, my personal contribution was minimal.
    Sato racing rearsets, Brembo master cylinders & levers, Evotec billet Aluminium fluid reservoirs, Rizoma integrated mirrors, Radguard and a custom tail tidy (laser-cut and press-bent to my original design specs).

    Despite my views on public roads, this R1 is an absolute joy to ride: silly fast, and handles like a dream; cornering is simply telepathic.
    Rego'd until March '19
    Has done ~2,500 km in total since the rebuild. Oil, filter & coolant changed at 1,500 km.

    PRICE: $11,000 firm.

    No time wasters please.
    Any test rides will be solely at my discretion, and most definitely on a 'Show Me The Money' basis.

    Feel free to PM me with any sensible queries.

    Trying to think of a wise and sincere signature quote, but the only words that leap to mind are, "TITTY SPRINKLES"

    Had a serious rethink about what constitutes a 'bargain'.

    Price is now $9,500 for PSB-ers

    A 1K throttle is like a hot blond, you really want to hit it but you are afraid of the consequences :black eye:

    Yes, but within a very limited range: like an aprilia Tuono (or Turbs' RSV, which unfortunately isn't an option )

    If I currently had a job, it would already be in my garage.
