What are the specs on that thing? It looks like late 90s by the plastics, it has USD forks, floating discs, etc. It looks quite advances for an older bike. I'd ride it.

Press Any Key To Continue.

I used to ride with a guy that had an old RZV500R, he let me ride it once, took a week to pry the smile off my face.
