Why Not Buy Tony Elias’ Yoshimura Superbike?

Really, $20,000 doesn’t seem at all out of line for the very bike Tony le Tigre won five Superbike races on last season, especially given that a standard GSX-R1000R sells for over $17k. This one makes 221 rear-wheel horses, according to the ad, and weighs 370 pounds. It’s only got 300 miles on it.

As we used to say in Kansas City, it got’s: a hand-formed Yoshimura fuel tank, billet subframe, massive super bike radiator, Yoshimura full Ti exhaust system and numerous other Yoshimura parts, MotoGP spec Brembo radial brake calipers and 330mm superbike rotors, Martek magnesium wheels, Motec ignition system and a Yoshimura kit wiring harness. Also, free shipping in the US to the winning bidder!

Are the lights in a box? Can we put them back on? Could make a nice streetfighter… Well, don’t get your hopes too up: $20k is only the opening bid. But so far there aren’t any bids at all with four days to go. Probably a few lurkers…

Here’s the ad on ebay. Will you take a third-party out-of-state check?
