Ultra Rare 1986 GSX-R 750 “Limited” Homologation Special For Sale

Check out this amazingly rare and immaculate 1986 GSX-R 750R Limited (GSXR750 RG) for sale on eBayMotors:

1986 Suzuki GSX-R 750R Limited GSXR750 RG For Sale1986 Suzuki GSX-R 750R Limited GSXR750 RG For Sale Dry ClutchSuzuki GSXR 750R Limited GSXR750 RG For Sale

quote from seller's listing:

Suzuki took the GSXR750 and added trick bits; the forks were very high tech for their time. They had what was called “Anti-Dive” technology. They were electric activated, telescopic, coil spring, oil damped, spring preload and were four-way adjustable. The rear shock was just as special with a gas charged remote reservoir and was aluminum bodied. Racing tail section that was hand laid fiberglass with a custom solo seat. Custom colored wheels. Racing clutch lever and dry clutch. This made swapping out clutch plates at the track a faster and cleaner job as well as keeping the oil free of clutch plate materials and they run cooler. The clip-ons were wider. Front brakes were upgraded. The engine got a magnesium cylinder head as well as sprocket covers to save weight. The front brakes had speacial-designed hoses. The fairing had additional cooling ducts as well as quick release fasteners. Even the emblem on the side was bike-specific. And finished with a gold plated chain with an all-aluminum chain guard. All this and it weighed in six pounds less than an off the shelf 750.

Don't you just love homologation specials?! The very best of everything and no expense spared. And when they're nearly 25 years old and never raced, AND hardly even ridden, they're truly a rare find. This one is currently at $12k (appears reserve has been met) with about 4 days to go.

And here's a quick video I found on YouTube of a limited being revved up (not the bike in auction):
