World's Rarest RZ?

We all have our 350's, and some have brought those wonderful 500's in from Canada.  There are even a few 250's floating around the states.  But have you ever seen the elusive RZ50, and the Kenny Robert's signature model at that?

If it's under 100 cc's, it's good to go!

OK, there really is no RZ50.  This was the original bike.  But don't you think Yamaha should have made one?  After all, the RZ350 was the last mid-size 2 Stroker in the USA.

 It should be the Kenny Roberts JR. model!
