YAMAHA RZ500N 1985 Zero-Miles in a Crate for Sale

Unfortunately not mine but found on the Internet.

Fancy getting your hands on a motorcycle which is exceedingly rare, if you pardon this expression? 
Australia has one such machine for sale in Nerang, Queensland: an 1985 Yamaha RZ500N, new and in a crate.

The bike is an Australian model imported by an Yamaha dealership in Brisbane in 1984. 
It has never been even started and comes with keys, mirrors, belly pan, books and all, just as it has left Japan.
We're looking at a V, 4-cylinder 2-stroke 499cc beast, apparently created as a street able replica off Kenny Roberts  YZR500 GP machine. 
The road bike was lighter but detuned for safety reasons.

The 1985 Yamaha RZ500N is awaiting its new owner in the crate, with a price tag of $38,490 (€22,265) at Trade Motorcycles.

Watch the Unrideables 2 stroke racing at its best.
