1987 Yamaha FZ750

Highlights


  • Very good condition throughout
  • Only 33,652 miles from new
  • Twelve months MOT on sale

The Appeal


With the rising trend in 80’s vehicles this is the perfect time to acquire one of these fantastic bikes. The FZ750 was the bike that defined the course of motorbike development over the next decade, the first to use Yamaha’s Genesis engine design and featuring a new perimeter type frame, it set the trend for modern sports bike development. 

Of course this isn’t just historically interesting, the engine and frame design means this bike rides like a modern bike, but with all of the 80’s cool you can handle.

It’s in excellent condition throughout from the paintwork to the chain it presents very well and with twelve months MOT at point of sale it’s ready to ride away and enjoy.

The History and Paperwork


  • V5 Present and correct
  • Twelve months MOT at the point of sale
  • Only 354 miles covered since 2014

The Interior


  • Clip on bars with crash plugs
  • Switchgear all presents well
  • Dashboard and instruments are all very good
  • Clutch and brakes levers both present well
  • Gear lever and brake pedal are both very good
  • Front brake reservoir would benefit from a tidy up to bring it up to the condition of the rest of the cockpit
  • Tinted front screen is clear and presents very well

This bike might be almost 35 years old, but sitting on it you get the feeling of a much younger machine. From the tinted screen to the dashboard and the switchgear it presents very well throughout.

The 80’s style long seat provides a comfortable ride whilst also allowing a full range of movement for more spirited riding. The dashboard is a good size with nice clear dials and the clip on bars are at just the right angle to give a great riding position. The switchgear is well laid out with everything within a thumbs reach without having to move your hands.

The Exterior


  • Fantastic 80’s styling
  • Fairing in very good condition with all of the decals
  • Blue and white “Speedblock” design
  • Gold brake callipers
  • Black engine and fork lowers
  • Gunmetal grey frame
  • White wheels

The FZ750 is a fantastic looking bike and looks particularly good in the blue and white colour scheme. The fairing is complete and in very good condition along with the paintwork on the engine casing and frame. Both wheels present very well and the trim and ancillary components such as the brake callipers all also present very well.

Whilst it’s quite clearly a modern sports bike the combination of the fairing shape and the Speedblock design give it plenty of retro good looks that make it stand out from the crowd.

The Mechanics


  • Twelve months MOT
  • 749cc Yamaha Genesis 20 valve engine
  • Starts easily and idles well
  • Sounds great with no unwanted noises
  • The owner informs us that it rides as it should
  • Viper exhaust

As can be seen from the images this FZ750is in great condition, all of the areas that we could see presented very well; from the discs to the rear sprocket it all looks very good. The bike sounds lovely through the Viper exhaust and the owner informs us that it rides exactly as it should, pulling very well and shifting gears smoothly. In excellent condition and with twelve months MOT at the point of sale it’s ready to ride and enjoy.

Summary


This FZ750 is a fantastic looking 80’s classic, but thanks to the 749cc Genesis engine it also has the performance to match. With low mileage, in excellent condition and with twelve months MOT they don’t come much better than this.

About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.
Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.

Anti-sniping

C&C prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.
Auctions are extended by 3-minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
  • If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
    • Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
    • We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.

Bid Amount Increment
£0 to £10,000 £100.00
£10,000 to £50,000 £250.00
£50,000 to £100,000 £500.00
£100,000+ £1000.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.
You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.

What are Commission bids?

A commission bid means you’re able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.

Problem with your bid

Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
