1999 Team Graves Yamaha Yamaha R7 OW-O2 SUPERBIKE - Anthony Gobert, Norioki Haga

This is the REAL deal!. Whats better than a 750cc R7? How about 1178cc 190rwhp fire breather! This bike started life as one of the 500 limited OW-2 R7s that were manufactured by Yamaha to win the World Superbike Championship. It was delivered to Graves Motorsports who them went about completely building the most nasty super street bike ever. The bike was built to Formula Extreme specifications. First off we have the power plant. This is a full on superbike build. We have a BIG BORE 1178cc, Graves ported head, YEC kit cams, knife edged crank, Carillo titanium rods, undercut close ratio YEC transmission with slipper clutch, 41mm Kehien down draft flat slide carburators, fully pressurized carbon fiber air box. All those burnt gases exit a full Titanium Pro Motive YEC exhaust system. Keeping the motor cool is a massive YEC Superbike radiator (these were over $10k in the R7 YEC kit). This monster produced 184 rear wheel horsepower on the Dyno Jet 250. That was on pump gas! On VP MR12 it pushes out a clean 191 rewhip! Holy shit kinda power. Of course to harness the beast motor we have the very BEST of components for suspension and frame tech. The front fork is a Ohlins GP spec gas charged set up. This fork was over $40k when new but only available as a leased option at the time. So you paid over $40k and got a Ohlins technician to fine tune you in. (crazy stuff!) In the rear there is again Ohlins TTX GP shock. This is coupled to a YEC Kit swingarm and kit billet linkage that is next to unobtainium in the superbike parts world. The swingarm/linkage was over $15k if you could find a way to get one. The super light weight magnesium Marchesini wheels spin on ceramic bearings and are held in place with YEC kit titanium axles with quick change front and rear. 5 second wheels change? no problem! The braking system is nothing short of amazing. Up front We have a set of full factory YEC Nissan billet 6 piston radial calipers with quick release aircraft spec dry break disconnects and a tiny billet Nissan caliper out back. Of course the Master cylinder is a GP spec Brembo with remote adjustability. Stopping happens right NOW! As far as cosmetics go this R7/1 is finished off with a beautiful WEST paint work. The tank is equipped with a dry break or billet closure depending on application. The complete bike weighs in at a ridiculous 366 lbs with 1 gallon of fuel and full fluids. 366lbs wet!!! So did I mention every bolt on the bike is Titanium? Yes its super light weight, super powerful and super rare. It cost well over $100k to build this monster. Are you man enough to own it?
