Just in from Europe is this very pretty and good condition 1989 FZ750. Looking to be a very original bike, its paintwork has survived very well, past the odd chip/mark here and there and some slight crazing to the yellow stripe on the tank, hardly noticeable though. What is noticeable, once pointed out, is the extra “carbon fibre” look tape each side orf the fairing cowl, not having removed it would take a guess that here will be some cracking round the fairing bolt holes where it meets the fairing sides, common to find on early bodywork such as this, not that it detracts from the bikes looks but it is there, along with the very rare original seat cowl!!
The engine is excellent, starts first time and is very quiet, pulling very well for a bike of this age (damn these were good bikes, why Yamaha never sold more of them, only him upstairs knows!!) gearbox and clutch are slick, brakes etc are all very good. The speedo is showing very low miles but don’t think its the original, its a European model with an American 55MPH marked MPH clock so has been changed at some point you would think, having said that looking at its general condition and listening to the engine, it cant of done a lot of work? We have ordered replacement rear indicator mounts, hence why they are not on the bike in the pictures, the mounts were all droopy from them big old original indicators being kicked all the time over the years, getting on and off the bike and desperately needed changing.
Full age related UK registration will be carried out, once DVLA sort themselves out and get back to work along with a fresh MOT.
