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
Ohlins rear shocks – $900
Brembro brakes (top of the line for racing) – $600
Yoyodyne slipper clutch – $800
Crg, lever – $200
Scotts steering dampener – $475
Zero gravity windscreen – $65
Gaifer steel brake lines
… and even more! 🙂
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.
Currently we are accepting reasonably offers on this bike but there is a reserve price set on the bike and it will not be sold any lower than that.
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.
Hunt Valley Cars and Coffee is having it's 6-month anniversary tomorrow morning. My friend Gypsy Jack has told me it's turned into quite a big and fun “gearhead” meetup for people from around Maryland and Pennsylvania. People will even drive up from Virginia for Hunt Valley Cars and Coffee to my understanding.
The Hunt Valley Cars and Coffee not only attracts a wide range of people, but cars and vehicles are diverse too. Classics, tuners, exotics, sportbikes, cruisers, lowriders, hot rods, etc. You name it, someone is going to come by with it, probably has, or eventually will. Check out some pictures from Hunt Valley Cars and Coffee.
Where: Hunt Valley Towne Centre, 118 Shawan Rd, Hunt Valley MD, 21030
When: Saturdays, 7:30 am – 10:30 am
Why: Because you like talking with other gearheads!
People usually gather in front of the closed Best Buy, since that is where the most parking is. Most people go over to Caribou Coffee to get coffee. Some people stay until 10:30 but I believe most are out of there by 9:30.
FYI after or before) Cars and Coffee I would recommend going to the Pennsylvania Dutch Market on York Rd. All you do is take a right on York Rd and go for about half a mile and then turn left onto Ashland Rd. The baked goods, donuts, and food there is AMAZING and it's run by Amish. Also the coffee here will be better in my opinion. It's a great thing to do if you have out-of-town guests or want to treat yourself. The Amish have me hooked on their apple fritters and cookies!
On Sunday I went to visit my friend Jack's house or as I like to call him Gypsy Jack. I showed him some of my blogging skills since he wants to start a blog. He showed me some of his awesome motorcycles. He's got a Yamaha R1 that has 175 Horsepower Does it go fast?… Jack's gotten it up to 192mph! If someone lighter rode it he said it could go over 200mph. Also in the stable is a Aprilla Mille R with carbon fiber bodywork and a Yamaha R6. Each bike has a lot of special details and features. Like the handmade windscreen on the R1 and all the graphics on the bikes. You can really tell the time and effort Jack puts into building them. He's put thousands of dollars into each and it shows. For a small sum he will even build you one, if you are game. He won't build a bike for posers, idiots, or douches though. Of course if you are one with tons of money… maybe that will make a difference. 🙂
Including his motorcycle collection Jack also has an impressive toy collection in his basement. My favorite part of the collection is his RC cars, which he used to race competitively. Some of the cars have immense detail, just like the motorcycles, and are tuned to perfection. He used to lap most people in races and usually won in every racing class that he participated in. Also in his collection is a Patton Replica, Star Wars Legos, and a Valentino Rossi replica made by hand. That isn't all as you can see from the photos.
If you have any questions pertaining to riding, sportbikes, motorcycling racing, building a bike, RC cars, or toys Jack is the man to ask.
