Pair of Suzuki GSX-R750 Limiteds for sale!

1986 Suzuki GSX-R750 and 2005 Suzuki GSX-R750 limited editions for sale in Canada.

While I'm the resident Bimota freak at RSBFS, I do have a soft spot for limited editions and homologation specials such as the Yamaha OW02 YZF-R7, the Honda RC30, and the Suzuki GSX-R750 Ltd and GSX-R750RKs.  So when I came across this pair of GSX-R750 Ltds, I just had to post it immediately for our readers:

I'm thinking of selling my LTD 750 since I don't ride it and don't have time for it ? 22,000 kms aprox 12K miles great shape, BONE STOCK !(except for windshield) every safety decal is still on there and reflectors as well.Asking price is $10,000.00 CDN

Just picked up a 2005 GSX-R LTD 750 , will sell it along side with the 86 for an extra 4K

Wow - $14,000 CDN for A PAIR of GSX-R750 Ltds?!  That's got to be one of the best bargain that I have seen in a while! Note to self: have to play more lotto numbers!!

Oh, click here to see on the ad on Ducati.ms (yes, Suzuki's for sale on a Ducati forum!)

1991 Suzuki RGV250 Gamma VJ22 California Titled & Registered!

Here is a California registered RGV250 Gamma!  Located in northern Orange County is a titled and registered Suzuki RGV250 for $6,300.  As listed earlier, the 1991's feature 34mm carbs, power-valves, USD forks, banana rear swing-arm and a 17" rear wheel.  This example has approximately three thousand miles on a new top & bottom end with a total of 23,000 miles total.  The bike has also recently received new brake pads, chain, sprockets and front tire.  The seller does state that the bike leaks some oil but doesn't mention the lower fairing.  This is a decent bike at an OK price.  See the bike on Craigslist here.

1986 Walter Wolf Racing edition Suzuki RG500 Gamma in Canada

We've been having a little discussion within the team about posting foreign bikes for sale, and the general consensus seems that if the bike is unique enough and as long as we don't do it too often, its OK.  So you may start seeing a few more (but not too many) international listings popping up - which I think is a good thing. A Rare Sport Bike is a Rare Sport Bike no matter where it is, right?

Like this 1986 Walter Wolf edition RG500 for sale in Oakville, Ontario, Canada that our reader Martin sent in (now why didn't I see this when I was attending high school in Oakville?!):

All original Walter Wolf Gamma (Signed in person by Walter wolf himself). Pictures to prove it. This is truly a one and only and is geared toward the true collector. Bike is all original with 38,700kms. Runs and looks great. Signature across top of tank in matching gold paint pen. Bike was professionally appraised in early 2007 at $15,000, prior to Mr. Wolf signing the bike. (Appraisal will go with the bike). It has only grown in value since I obtained the signature. Mr. Wolf claims it is not only the first one he has ever seen, but the first and only he has signed. As with all gammas, there are a few minor spider cracks around some of the fairing connectors. This bike needs to be seen to be appreciated. Never dropped or abused. Very clean and still one of the most iconic sport bikes ever.

The RG500 Gamma is one of the most iconic sport bikes, and the Walter Wolf Racing edition is even more desirable (for me anyway).  Check out this RG400 that we listed before (with RG500 video).

So what is (or rather, who is) Walter Wolf?  Walter is a rich Canadian businessman (I think he is in the oil business) with a keen interest so he set up Walter Wolf Racing and even ran a F1 team from 1976 - 1980.  Here's more info on this interesting gentleman.

If I have the money to buy an RG500, it would definitely be a Walter Wolf Racing edition.  And while I'm at it, I definitely wouldn't mind picking up one of them F1 cars in the background to complete the set!

1982 Suzuki RGB500 MK7 Grand Prix Factory racer on ebay

1982/83 Suzuki Gamma XR40 RG(B)500 MK7 Factory Grand Prix racer listed on ebay with a $60,000.00 B.I.N. and a current bid of $30,000.00.

This is a chance of a lifetime to own a true Grand Prix factory race machine. You are reading correctly; a true Suzuki Factory Grand Prix racer can be had for your personal collection or a vintage day at the track. Yes, I would have to give it a go at least once and maybe twice if it was really fun.

The exact history is a little vague at the time of post, but it appears to be a 1982 model that was purchased from the factory in 1983 by a satellite Grand Prix team. This particular machine has had a frame up restoration and in my opinion looks extremely nice. The current paint scheme was copied from the 1982 Randy Mamola HB Suzuki racer. Below you can see the two and I think you'll agree it looks extremely good when compared to the original factory bike. I noticed a few mechanical differences between the two, but somethings just aren't obtainable 27 years after only producing a handful of race bikes. It does appear that the seller did a nice job of maintaining the integrity of what would have been original to the factory race package.

Something interesting to point out about the history of this bike is that it was raced in the 1988 & 1989 USGP by Eugene Brown, of Portland, Oregon. I spent a considerable amount of time researching the 88/89 USGP and there were several Suzuki's on the grid, but I couldn't find a site that stated what generation of RG had been entered in the race. No matter how you slice it, history or no history this a factory Suzuki Grand Prix machine and you have an opportunity to park it in your showroom. Take a look at the documented rebuild pictures and judge for yourself.

1982 Suzuki Moto GP rebuild in Randy Mamola factory design

1982/83 Factory Suzuki Moto GP Randy Mamola machine

Quote from the lising:

This is one of the limited production GP bikes available to the private teams and the first year to use the works stepped square 4 cylinder arrangement and the all new full float rear suspension and the front fork anti-dive system.

For 1981 and 1982 the Suzuki`s were the bikes to have and in 1981 Marco Lucchinelli won the world title on the Works RG Gamma XR35, followed by Franco Uncini in 82 on the Works RG Gamma XR40.

Specifications
Type Water-cooled disc-valve 2 stroke stepped square 4
Capacity 495cc (54x54mm)
Comp ratio 8.5:1 corrected
Lubrication 20:1 premix
Carburation 4 Magnesium 36mm Mikuni

Rear wheel 18” Dymag
Front wheel 16” or 18” Dymag
Weight dry 292 lbs.
Horse Power 120
Speed 170 mph @ 11000 rpm

I've spent several hours watching old Grand Prix video's from this era and I always leave shaking my head and saying "WOW, those were real men". I can only begin to imagine what it must have been like to ride a 170hp machine that weighed only 292lbs. So, I've attached a video of Randy Mamola trying to tame an ill handling 500cc 2-stroke and it is truly an amazing sight - only to see him get flicked off like a...........a......well a cowboy in a rodeo.

The seller is also including a huge and quite expensive spares package that I'm going to assume will be needed to keep a bike of this nature in pristine running order. Here's what you'll get if you pick this one up.

Suzuki RGB 500 Mk7 extra race parts
Suzuki 17” mag with 180-17 slick
Suzuki 17” mag with 120-17 slick

The spares package is said to be worth $10,000.00 and by the looks of it, I wouldn't disagree one bit. This is an opportunity of a lifetime and available for the taking if you have an extra $60k burning a hole in your pocket.

I came across another video that really has nothing to do with this bike other than there's a distant connection via Randy Mamola. Check it out and then watch it a few more times just as I did.

Cheers!

1991 Suzuki RGV250SP Gamma VJ22 California Titled & Registered!

Let me start off by saying that, I wish I wasn't posting this, I wish I was driving down to buy this!  Located in Oakland, California is a Suzuki RGV250 SP with 9,057km (5,627mi) and an asking price of $4,200 OBO!  The bike does need the clutch replaced and hasn't run in a few years.  Regardless, this appears to be a Sports Production model with a dry clutch and close-ratio gear box.  The other features of the VJ22 are:

For the 1991 year's model the RGV250 Gamma was updated with new carburetors (from 32 mm to 34 mm), power valves and new front suspension.  A new semi-frame banana swingarm was introduced (looks a lot like the one used in the Honda NSR).  It gave better ground clearance and allowed to draw the exhaust pipes where the swingarm should have been...The new swingarm stiffened the rear and quite dramatically but also increased the weight from 129kg to 139kg.  With a new rear swingarm the front end was also rebuilt with the new upside down suspension forks, which had a good design but the performance was not as good as the old forks which it replaced.  The power output and torque was increased slightly and a 17" rear wheel added to the list of upgrades.

With the introduction of the power valves came the biggest problem of the RGV250.  The valves wear down from opening and closing and can collide with the piston and break.

The bike does come with a new clutch to replace the old one, there is a small dent in the tank, some decal fading and a small crack in the right mirror.  This bike isn't perfect mechanically, but if you can do the work yourself you'll have an amazing Homologation bike that that is very easily worth much more than you paid for it.  From the looking at the photos, this bike also appears to be 100% stock without any modifications.  Am I the only one that sees how awesome this bike is, especially at this price?  I"m up for a 306lb, 63hp two stroke any day!  If this puts you in the mood, see it on BayAreaRidersForum here.

1989 Suzuki VT250K Wolf VJ21A

Located in Ontario, Canada is a 1989 Suzuki VT250.  According to the seller:

Japan home market v-twin 2 stroke. This is the naked version of the RGV250.

I haven't seen one of these before, which doesn't mean it's automatically rare but I don't doubt it is.  Seller states it has 17,000km, the carbs were just gone through, and a new battery.  This is a 282lb, 45hp, Two Stroke.  See it on North American Two Strokes here.
