« on: May 04, 2015, 01:51:18 AM »
Hello All!  I am selling my 1983 XZ550RK Vision and wanted to post it here first!  I am the original owner (bought it brand new, in the crate, in 1985)!  It has 10,800 miles on it and has been in storage here in the dry climate of Colorado.  Everything is original.  Please contact me for more pictures, info, etc.

Three oh Three, Nine 1 two, Fore Four oh 5.

Cheers!!  Jeff

Rikugun, a truck can carry it to your door.  Just sayin'

How many more are left in this condition?  Pickings are becoming more scarce, ya know.

Just wanted to bump this for sale post due to Spring Cleaning!  Hoping I can find a good home for this pristine Vision!  It still lives quietly in an airplane hangar in Centennial, Colorado.

I've decided to take the carbs off and ultrasound them, install new fuel lines, etc.  When I get it put back together and purring, I will post an update on it and see what the market value will be for one in this condition and running well.  Thanks for posting!!

So you are going to take all of the challenge out of it?  It may lose a bit of appeal to some. ;D

If you really want to sell it try Bring a Trailer. It's a good auction site, mostly cars but interesting bikes too. And you can put on a reserve which you probably should.
