I'm going Saturday or Monday to look at what I believe to be a 07 N500R. I'm basing year from its color of Metallic Titanium with Solar Yellow tribal flames. Can anybody tell me of another year that had that combination.?
A buddy of mine that deals in classic cars found it and told me about it but not sure of the year.
Back story is husband at 62 passed about a year ago and she has finally decided to sell his collection of toys. Classic cars, sports cars, boat, motorcycles and such that she doesnt use. Both husband and wife were surgeons and and she still has their practice. Very wealthy I'm told.
So I've seen three pictures of the bike and it looks to be stored in a shop with the cars and is really clean on the left side front and rear. Looks to have a tender hooked to it but no real close ups though..... but blowing it up I think I could see what looked to be 15 miles on the odometer which she is claiming it says. Now I would find that hard to believe but wow could you imagine. She believes he bought it new in 09 or 10 but says she never remembers him riding it other then the first day.
Any way she was asking 1500 but we are already at 1300 on the phone and that's only if the tires are good and no more then 5 years old.
Anyone familiar enough with the 500R to give me some clues on what to look out for specific to that bike? I'm mean if the milage is correct then its tires, hoses, fluids, check the fork seals, brake seals and motor for leaks and roll. But I'm not holding my breath and would like to plan for a more realistic milage for its age.
Really stoked about it and hope it pans out as the plans are to give it to the youngest who turned 16 yesterday . That would put three of us on bikes when my oldest gets the front forks rebuilt on the ZX6.
Thanks for your help in advance.
