My 86' RWB

I thought I would share some pics of my 86' RWB with 10,800 miles. It has Michelin tires to hold it on the road.

Wow she is gorgeous!   Looking forward to hearing more about her...is she a survivor or has there been some restoration / rejuvenation along the way?

100% survivor with original paint and garaged kept. The original owner had it till earlier this year. It's had all the fluids flushed or replaced and drives and shifts soooo smooth. This is only the 2nd one I've seen this year for sale in the eastern time zone.

I love it! and walk in the garage several times a day just to look at it. I have wanted this color scheme for years.

Truly stunning right down to the original stickers!  if you have not already done so, please consider entering your survivor into bike shows.  She would be a VERY strong competitor in any people's choice or professionally judged event especially if there is a survivor class!

I've never owned a mid '80's 700S but always heard the RWB's are the most coveted and prized.  Enjoy!

I don't plan on letting this one go.

I would love to enter this in shows. I'm sure there's some in the Atlanta, area. I have an 84' Black / Blue with 13k unmolested miles.

Only 6K made for the US I think. But the carbs were black I think. And a real OEM rack, hard to find. I have 2 and took me 4 years to locate. I had on powder coated.

Enter that in a show, see how she does.   nice1

Both the 1986 RWB and ROB colour schemes had regular carbs, but their faux velocity stacks were black instead of silver.  This looks to be the original configuration.

Thanks! I love it. I try to drive or crank it every couple of months and keep it on a battery tender.
