Can't you paint any stock RZ500 to look like that?

Less pricey! :smt003

IF it sells, I'll be sure to point it out to the wife as a way of showing that ANYTHING I spend on mine is money well spent.

That particular dealer is well known for taking pricing to new levels....Anyone can ask a high price , achieving it is another matter entirely, as we well know.

BTT the bike was advertised privately for 18K I believe, from where this dealer purchased it.

Is that a NR750 behind it? Judging by the bikes behind it I suspect this is more of a personal collection than sales floor.

It's a dealer. Their link is on that eBay page http://www.thebikespecialists.com/

They have a large full coloured advertisement in Practical Sportbikes each month. They buy high end bikes and resell. An honest business, but pricey, as you might expect. The NR750 is 69,980 GBP. Near $90,000 USD.

It reminds me of a local guy that runs a collectors club. He used to put prices on all of his bikes. I want to say he was asking $40000 for a sand cast CB750. Clearly he is a collector that just wants everyone to know that everything is for sale for a price.
