K@k storie die - lyk vir my ge-photoshop  :patch:

Fok ek hoop nie so nie.

Gaan verskriklik frustreerd wees aangesien die week mal gaan wees en ek nie die fiets sal kan gaan haal nie en is volgende naweek by Oasis. Tyd sal leer soos my Pa se. :thumleft:

If it is a photochop bike  throw in a couple of PK's just for good measure...........................

Congrats - an iconic bike............  somewhat of a mid-life crisis then.... impulse buy......... yearning for your childhood or the early 80's   :pot:


Lekker man - lekker jealous!!    :thumleft: :thumleft:

Very much congratulations Boere, that thing is a BEAUT!!!  Original 31K, good to see that they are starting to climb in value.

I am building one up, and need the bellypan, grabrail and handlebar fairing. Are you going to use yours? :peepwall:......if anyone know of these parts lying around, please PM me?

These are indeed iconic bikes, like BennNevis stated, real giant-killers when they came out.

No, the powerband on these are far less pronounced than on one of Boere's LC's, which have no powervalves.

PS. I have always wondered why Yamaha chose to put the NON-YPVS LC engine into it's Banshee quad, and not the much more tractable YPVS.

Collectors piece,congrats.I bought a brand new RZ350 in 1985 for I think R2800.00.It was stolen out of a public garage in 1989 at the bottom end of Empire rd.
I hope that person is dead today.

Enjoy your new find,congrats

What a beaut! I saw it advertised, but way out of my price league. I recon if you can keep it in that condition, it will be worth a mint in a few years. Congrats and enjoy. Park it in your entertaiment area  :biggrin:

The last time I saw one this neat was at Maydardville Toy Run two years ago. It was parked next to a mint RZ500.
