Here is a really sweet example of Yamaha's attempt to dominate AMA and World Superbike. With only 500 examples produced for the worldwide market this is the rarest of the Homogalation factory specials from the Superbike heyday. These bikes had a special Delta Box frame and very high end suspension provided by Ohlins. This particular bike was one of 17 that were brought into the United States to contest the AMA Superbike championship. It was originally delivered to Vance and Hines racing in California and led its early life as a back up bike for Dave Sadowski. Sadowski went on to win the Daytona 200 on the OW-01 Superbike in 1990. The bike was adorned with many YEC kit Superbike parts at the time. It was eventually returned to somewhat stock configuration and is presented today in this form. It still features a set of kit 39mm Kehien carbs, YEC kit exhaust and a kit braced Swing arm. Wheels are light weight three spoke Marvic magnesium. The body is a combination of 8hr Suzuka YEC and custom Vance and Hines sharkskins. Bike only has 1500 miles on it and is fresh as the day it rolled off the V&H transporter. Add this to your Yamaha collection today!
