*** 1998 1st Edition YAMAHA R1 "4XV" WITH the much sought after large "YZF" logos & only 9690 miles***
 
>>> Part exchange welcome - low miles though <<<
 
I recently bought this off a collector client of mine as a "store & watch your investment grow" bike
However it had blue & white wheels, blue wing mirrors - so I have changed those and whilst at it
put new tyres & sprocket on.
 
FROM LOOKING AT THE SERVICE BOOK IT HAD BEEN LAID UP IN 2001 AFTER LAST SERVICE @ 6K MILES
THEN RECOMMISSIONED IN 2016 WITH SERVICE AT 9515 MILES
IT WAS THEN SERVICED AGAIN BY M+P ON 19/11/18 @ 9685 MILES & CARBS CLEANED & BALANCED AT SAME TIME
MY COLLECTOR CLIENT BOUGHT IT 12/12/18 BUT DIDN'T WARM TO IT (Mad!) SO I BOUGHT IT OFF HIM
 
Very standard bike with uber low miles, service book (includes 600 mile stamp), 2 keys & MOT until Nov 19
AND AS ALWAYS FULL HPI REPORT FOR NEW OWNER SHOWING NO NASTIES OR SURPRISES
 
RODE IT TODAY TO TAKE PHOTOS (and I absolutely love these early R1's) AND LIKE RIDING A SUPER BIKE BUT 
STEPPING BACK IN TIME - SHE IS TIGHT, FAST & STOPS GOOD ENOUGH - STILL VERY RAPID!
 
Only went a short distance as brand new tyres & didn't want to take the shine off them :D
Haven't detailed her yet hence no real close up photos but will upload soon when done if not sold.
 
THESE ARE THE ONES TO COLLECT AND WHILST THE RED/WHITE ARE MORE POPULAR (NOW)
THEY ARE ALSO A LOT MORE MONEY FOR THE SAME BIKE - THESE BLUE ONES ARE STARTING TO COME
INTO THEIR OWN & FRANKLY I LOVE THE PURPLISH BLUE - JUST LOOK AT MY PHOTOS BELOW 
What a design that is 21 y.o. and has just aged so well - achingly good looking bike even now
and is a sure fire investment.  No wonder the prices are heading North though - just ride one!
She's not MINT (so priced well) but very very good and with a little bit of input could be a concours bike
THE VALUE LIES IN BEING VERY VERY EARLY (Engine 0002418) & OF COURSE MEGA LOW MILEAGE
 
ANY QUESTIONS PLEASE ASK & VIEWINGS ALWAYS WELCOME ANYTIME AS I WORK FROM HOME
