VIC Yamaha R1 2000mdl

Discussion in 'Stolen Bike Register' started by llamaha, Dec 19, 2012.

  1. I know there's a lot of bikers here so I thought I would share a picture of it, it was a 2000 model R1 which my friend had just spent the last year rebuilding from scratch and he was just about finished. It was missing it's bottom fairing as seen in the picture. It had a new engine bought from the wreckers that still had writing on the side.
    Stolen from my shared apartment parking in Kensington / Flemington area. I suspect it will be used for parts because the CBR600RR next to it was worth more but they took the R1. I still cannot contact my friend (he's overseas) but will update this with the engine / vin no. when possible.
