If you look in the back of the van, I think it IS the trail car.

holy crap! That is one fascinating wreck write there! It looks like he's used an old tubular frame as an exhaust pipe? Somebody extract that to a file to keep on record... That's one of the worst ads I've ever seen!

I love people who think they have gold. Best part is he had it listed for 12k last year right after he bought it. I guess the value rises each year!

Create the hype and someone will convince themselves it is real.

Heres another but looks like a much better bike and still appears to have the stock paint job which is rare now days.

Oh I'm sure, sorry that I didn't convey the dripping sarcasm in my previous haha.
Even the one listed below it, completely unmolested and in great condition, for $1000 less, and in a "Year-round" state.

Looks to be a very close cousin of a Benelli two stroke I had that was sold through Montgomery Ward in the 60's.

When AMF owned HD they imported the small displacement bikes from Benelli. They weren't great bikes but then they weren't bad either. Problem was that the HD dealers wouldn't work on them.

Been seeing a few of those for fairly cheap lately. Can you still get parts for them?

This looks like a nice example of the 900rr. I wanted one so bad in high school.
For those that have rode one, whats the power like compared to a gen 1 fz1?

Purrty damn close. I believe it was 130ish. Weight was down, and had great handling. The thing about the RR was you could change direction at will. If you are buying it, cam chain guides wear out as well as chain stretches. Easy fix. Valves obviously will need checked. Later models had an issue with 2nd gear dogs. Probably because they were easy to wheelie. Overall a great bike with solid frame and decent suspension. I reckon at 46k miles it will need some love but for 2200 how can you go wrong. Hell, I want it.............

That is probably a blessing in disguise!

I'd compare the RR to an FZ07 - plenty of power up high but moderate (and more than sufficient) in the mid-range, incredibly flickable.. Different, but overall similar in straight line performance, run circles around a Gen I FZ1 on, say, the dragon...

Desmo owned one. He'll chime in soon.

Ugly color IMO though. The white ones were sure purdy

900RRs had about 110 hp but plenty of midrange. More midrange than the FZ but not as much up top. Probably similar quarter mile times because the Honda was lighter.
Weird handling bikes, at least in totally stock form. Much harder core sportbike than the FZ1.
