Price as is or will be a lot more when recommissioned...NOW THIS IS A PROPER BARN FIND!...1 owner since new in 2000, never had an MOT as he put it away in 2004 and that was it until now! - hence only 6,200 miles. Have all original bits & pillion seat with the bike. Will be recommissioned in due course unless sold as is after detailing, can't wait to get my hands on it & bring her back to show stopper! Early collectable carb model ... Yummy!

(NOW SOLD) BARN FIND - 2000 Yamaha R1 with just 6,200 miles ... STORED SINCE 2004!
I recently stumbled across this 1 owner 2000 R1 with just 6,200 miles that he bought new in 2000 then put away in 2004 & so she came to me in the back of a van with 7 psi in the tyres, rotten fuel & 16 years of "debris". The video does not really show the state it was in but she is almost ready for the next part - recommission of oil, fluids, brakes, tyres etc. etc. & then she will be a lovely original early carb R1 with super low miles. Nothing has been restored just properly cleaned, original unused parts put back on & some serious compounding of parts of the paintwork. Needs a final good polish now & a couple of bits tweaking that I have missed BUT she looks GOOD & bringing her back brings a BIG SMILE to my face.
