Hey Everyone, I am listing Gypsy Jack's 2001 Yamaha R6 Champions Edition for sale. This series of R6's were a Limited Edition run and this is the #175 model that was made. This specific Yamaha R6 is heavily modded and contains numerous upgrades and special parts too. Here is a breakdown of what is on the motorcycle;
- Full Akrapovic exhaust system – $1,100
- Top of the line Marchesini wheels made of lightweight magnesium- $2,000

The bike has $10,000+ worth of parts installed on it, some of which I will list later. On top of all these parts the body panels are made of carbon fiber. There is also a Quarter Turn throttle meaning to get to full throttle on this R6 you only need to turn a quarter turn. This Yamaha R6 only has 14,000 miles on the odometer and it was always garage kept.
Remember this is Jack Moschetto‘s (Gypsy Jack) R6, a friend of mine who I posted about on this blog a few times and he was well known amount the “gearhead” community in Baltimore and surrounding areas. You can see in the pictures below that this R6 is in immaculate condition. Jack would clean this bike anytime he took it out to ride. Often he would use toothbrushes to clean it up and make sure there was no road or dirt grime on it.
The bike has won an award from Yamaha several years ago but I haven't had a chance to check to check with Yamaha.
Jack took incredible time to build rolling pieces of art and anyone who would want to buy this would be getting a great deal on a one-of-a-kind motorcycle that you won't find anywhere else.
If you are interested in the motorcycle you can email me – cool AT adamsautoadvice.com – with any questions. Let me know if you'd like additional information and pictures and I will try to provide you with as much as I can, but should let you know upfront I will probably refer you to a friend of Jack's who is much more knowledgeable about motorcycles mods and this particular bike than I am.
UPDATE: The asking price for the bike is $8,000.
Note: I will update this post with additional pictures and parts information as needed and requested.
