GENUINE COLLECTORS BIKE

HPI CLEAR

Welcome to the listing for this genuine, totally original, launch year model Yamaha R1.

Being sold on behalf of one of our good customers, having come from his amazing private collection. He bought the bike in early 2018, adding it to his impressive static collection of over 60 bikes, all lovingly housed in a heated showroom. The previous owner also had the bike as part of his own private collection, and it was drained of fuel prior to being stored (as so many do for insurance reasons). We will now leave it to the new owner to decide if they wish to keep it dry for storage themselves, or you want to get it filled up and running again. We can do this for you as part of the sale if you would like, but it would be at extra cost. Likelihood is that it will at least need the carbs to be removed, stripped, cleaned, and rebuilt with new rebuild parts.

This bike is a genuine UK supplied launch year model, first registered 27/04/98 and sold from Bridge Motorcycles in Exeter, and it is totally original (other than the braided brake lines fitted as original ones had perished and needed replacing when the bike was last MOT’d in 2013). The bikes comes with its original PDI (pre delivery inspection) sheet from new, and also the invoice from Bridge Motorcycles for its first service at 888 miles.

From what we can gather, it looks like the bike did 3,319 before it was due its first MOT as the DVLA system is showing its first, and only, MOT was done in 2013 at 3,319 miles. So since then it has just done only 26 miles, and has not been MOT’d again since from the DVLA records. There is also an invoice in the bikes file for servicing works the week it was MOT’d (August 2013). This invoice is for; collection of bike, strip carbs and ultrasonic clean, reassemble and balance carbs, drain all fuel and oil, replace spark plugs, brake fluids, oil and filter, adjust and lube chain, and to replace tyre valves (plus replace original brake lines for braided as per MOT failure).

With only 1 previous owner, and just over 3k miles on the clock, it must be one of the best available right now.

The paint is in very good condition, but not immaculate, as it has been used on the roads for just over 3k miles and hasn’t been “restored”. But importantly, it looks to be all original.

On the paperwork side, the bike comes with its V5, HPI certificate, paperwork for PDI and service detailed above, original Owners Manual, and original service book complete with first service stamp in it. All contained in the original Bridge document wallet.

This has got to be one of the best, original example first year R1’s there is for sale, and something any motorcycle collector would be proud of being in their collection.

The bike is here in our showroom so please feel free to come and have a look and see it for yourself in the flesh. I’m sure you will be impressed. The kettle is always on at our showroom.
