Suzuki GSX-R Blowout Post: 5 Classic Gixxer’s on eBay Right Now!

Apparently these aren't quite as hard to find as I thought! Here are 5 great looking classic GSX-R sportbikes for sale right now on eBay:


1986 Suzkuki GSX-R 750
- This one only has 17k miles and wears the original body work that is in shockingly good condition considering this bike is 22 years old! Has a buy-it-now for $5200.


1990 Suzuki GSXR750
- Nice upgrades on this one include: Later forks, Marchesini rims, Cosworth pistons, Yoshimira exhaust and cams, Keihin carbs, and more. This sucker is loaded and the auction is about to end at just under $3k reserve not met. What a shame, although I'd be secretly thrilled if it were my bike and it hadn't sold!!


And three more GSX-R 1100 models: an 86, 87, and 89!

Have experience with an old GSX-R like one of these? Leave a comment and tell us about it!

1988 Suzuki GSX-R 1100: Clean and Recently Rebuilt Motor

I know that by definition the GSX-R isn't rare considering how many were produced, but I would say they are close knowing how hard it would be to find a survivor like this one. Take a look at this 1988 GSX-R 1100 for sale in Chicago on Craigslist:

quote from seller's Craigslist ad:

THIS IS A 1988 GSXR 1100 IN EXCELLENT CONDITION. IT HAS AN PROFESSIONALLY 1109 BIG BORE KIT INSTALLED IT HAS 2200 MILES ON IT.THIS IS AN EXTREMELY FAST BIKE. THERE IS 38mm FLAT SLIDES ,BIG BORE KIT, FALICON RODS AND HEAD WORK IN THE MOTOR. AND THERE ARE ALOT OF GREAT FEATURES SUCH AS IT HAS 8900 MILES ON THE BODY AND THIS IS A REALLY CLEAN BIKE.

Love the colors, original plastics, dual lamps and recently built motor. But that $3500 asking absolutely rocks!

1993 Suzuki RGV250 For Sale with Title

Another great looking two stroke sportbike for sale. It seems like that time of year and all the great looking bikes are coming out for sale at the end of the season. Check out this 1993 Suzuki RGV250 For Sale on eBay:

quote from seller's eBay listing:

Up for auction is my RGV250 with a street legal Florida title in my name.This is a VJ22A model. Bike is totally stock and original and was imported from Europe a couple of years ago by myself.

It has approx. 9500 miles and everything works as it should. If you know about these bikes you now how rare they are especially with a street legal title.

Bike is in very good condition for the year. It has a few blemishes on it but would stand up against any bike of the same year.

Not as flashy as some of the 2-strokers I've posted, but it's got a big plus going for it: It's titled! So if you want a bike you can ride to the local gathering and wow everyone with something they probably haven't seen on the road before, this could be your bike.

1988 Suzuki GSXR 750 Slingshot: Beautiful Survivor For Sale with Upgrades

There's an original GSX-R Slingshot that comes out of hiding in my neighborhood once in a while. Every time I see it I'm impressed with how great this model looks. And it is so rare to see an original looking survivor. Since spotting this bike a few times, I've been on the prowl. These are not easy to find on the used market!

But here's a great looking 1988 Suzuki GSX-R 750 'slingshot' for sale in San Diego on Craigslist:

quote from seller's Craigslist ad:

This bike is my baby, it is parked in my living room. I love this bike. I broke my back a few years ago on my dirt bike, it still hurts!
So it is time to sell, if you always liked the 88 GSXR, then you want this bike. It has never been downed. I've raced it, but never abused it. I have so much money wrapped up in this thing that I will never see, but it is okay because the time spent riding it was AMAZING. OK...Where do I start? Body and paint:PERFECT, no BS Motor out of 1991 GSXR 750. The chassis millage is 26,679 however all bearings are new. The motor & trani have 1,642 miles on them I broke it in at 5500 RPM for 500 miles. Weisco 7R7 Piston Kit. New bearings and gaskets. Pocket port work on head. Stock cams. Transmission: was sent out of state for gears to be under-cut and shimmed by R&D! "you can shift with your pinky toe" Forks off 1992 GSXR 750 "Inverted". LG Valving Kit. Braided brake lines. Mikuni Flatslide carbs with Stage 3 Jetting just rebuilt 6/6/08. Yoshimura exhaust. OVER $7,000.00 in parts and labor

Any guy who stores the bike he loves in the house is okay by me! He's asking $5k which demonstrates just how rare a clean example has become.

1997 Suzuki RGV250 For Sale with Lucky Strike Bodywork

I love this paint scheme! Here's the link to the Forum Post on usa2stroker.com and the eBay listing for this Suzuki RGV250:

1997 Suzuki RGV250 Lucky Strike For Sale1997 Suzuki RGV250 Lucky Strike Tank1997 Suzuki RGV250 For Sale

quote from eBay listing:

I bought this bike about 2 years ago and did a minor restoration. The previous owner had rebuilt the motor completely about 2500 miles before I got it. I have only put about 500 miles on the bike since I've owned it. That's part of the reason that I am selling due to little time to ride and maintain. The motor pulls very strongly and brings the front wheel off the ground in 1st and 2nd gear if you wish it to. The bike is jetted for Northern California and though I am in SoCal, I've never rejetted as I'd rather be on the safe side.

Even though this bike does have a California title, I think the lofty starting price of $10200 is a bit higher than market considering the mileage and wear. The bodywork does look really good and it has some nice upgrades. If you've been waiting for a Lucky Strike RGV, maybe your wait is over.
