MORE PHOTOS AVAILABLE HERE: http://newjersey.craigslist.org/mcy/423XXXXXX.html Really cool vintage superbike 80's Yamaha Radian YX600 project with no time to finish. Bike #1: This bike had been stored in a barn for 10 yrs when I found it. It has a CLEAN TITLE!!!! I got it to run up on the bench last week. Unfortunately I just don't have time to do the full blown restoration I had dreamt of. Chrome exhaust is in really attractive shape. Tank in attractive shape. Complete set of matching light blue bodywork in box. Seat in attractive condition. Complete with all side panels. All cables work, brakes work. Lamps work. Just rebuilt carbs and installed a high flow K&N air filter. With little effort you could make this a reliable daily runner. However, with all that being said, this bike is still what I would call a project bike. It's a great candidate for a complete restoration. Bike #2 was supposed to be a donor parts bike but I couldn't resist getting it running either. Bought it for the rare four into 1 exhaust and then decided to rebuild the carbs and see what I had to work with. Ran for a few minutes on the bench just like her sister. So now I can't bear to tear her apart. Will make a really cool custom cafe racer....already halfway there with straight bars and airbox removed.Bike #3 was dismantled down to the frame and ready for the powdercoater and a complete custom rebuild. Complete motor, wheels, suspension, wiring harness, lamps, seat, instruments, airbox, exhaust and carburetor bank (all four complete). The only major component missing from #3 is a tank. No titles for Bike #2 or Bike #3. Bill of sale only. This is a PROJECT. These bikes are not ready to ride home. The chain, sprockets and tires need to be replaced. No battery included. Fuel petcock is leaking (will give you a spare unit. Rebuild kits are available on eBay for about $30. Will include an owners manual and a repair manual with sale.I am willing to deliver the bikes (and the boxes of spare parts) within 100 mis for $0.50/mile round trip. If you need a winter project that will be ready to rock this spring, this is your deal!

Rossi 'training' at his MotoRanch

Mon, 30 Jan 2012

Like Kenny Roberts, Valentino Rossi has got his own ranch where he has built his own private motocross track and dirt oval. The above YouTube video shows Rossi training on the flat-track circuit that makes up his 'MotoRanch' located near his home town of Tavullia. He's shown riding a Yamaha, but that's probably because Ducati don't have themselves a scrambler.
