1979 Suzuki GS1000S Wes Cooley Replica For Sale in Washington

I think these Wes Cooley replica's are cool and I'm posting this one even though it looks a little rough around the edges and has some running issues. But for $3k, it could be an interesting project to restore or mod.

Check it out here on Craigslist:

quote from Craigslist post:

79 Suzuki GS 1000 S, "Wes Cooley Replica" only 535 made, very rare, 12,500 original miles, friend of mine is original owner and I know the history, hand polished and painted wheels, lots spent on restoration but I have given up, to many projects, my loss is your gain. Have many reciepts worth $$$. Runs great except runability issue where the idle climbs when it gets warm and I cant figure out what the problem is. I have not spent a great deal of time trying to fix it. Motor is very solid and well taken care of. 30 year Suzuki mechanic says to try valve adjustment, vacuum leak. Should be easy fix, but I have no time!

NEW:
Metzler tires
smoke windshield
ebc brakes
carb rebuild with genuine suzuki parts, float needles, pilot, and main
tail light
throttle cables
gas tank coating
vance and hines exhast, 4 into 1
oil and filter

1991 Suzuki RGV250 VJ22

Located in Chico, California is a very good looking 1991 Suzuki RGV250.  The VJ22s reportedly have 62hp on tap and weigh less that 150kg, making them a very quick and nimble sport bike.  This example is plated and registered in California, retains the oil injection system, has newer pilot powers, arrow exhaust and the top end was done at 18k kilometers--but does not mention current odometer reading.  The seller mentions some light nicks and scratches, but regardless, I say this is fairly priced at $6,000.  If you'd like to beat up much larger displacement bikes, see the Craigslist ad here.

1993 Suzuki RG R Gamma 125 $1475

Located in San Diego, California is a Suzuki 125 RG R track bike for only $1475. The ad states this bike has inverted forks, big brakes, and seventeen inch wheels making it a capable track day machine. The ad does state that it probably needs to be gone through as the bike has been sitting--something that should normally be done if taking a bike to the track anyway. At just under fifteen-hundred dollars, how could you not consider this for a track toy? Thanks for the heads up Victor! See the San Diego Craigslist ad here.

Edit: I noticed that this bike has been advertised several times at different prices;  5/26 for $1350 and 5/24 for $1775, this in addition to the $1475 ad I posted.  I have no idea why sellers raise the price when something won't sell, at least delete the  old ad to hide the evidence!  Just something to be aware--and cautious--of.

1991 GSXR400 GK76A $4000 (SOLD)

Another find from a reader request is this possibly still for sale Suzuki GSXR400.  Here is the posting from the gsxr400.com forum:

Sadly I am buying a new house and need some cash to cover closing cost. I thought I'd give the people on the forum a chance to buy the bike before it goes on e-bay.
It is a 1991 GSXR 400 GK76A with a complete front end off of a 2004 Kawi 636. It has a new front tire, new computer, and a rebuilt starter. The motor was rebuilt not too long ago (and I have receipts to show). Red paint in great condition. The only draw backs are a bent shifter, which still works great, from a driveway drop after letting my cousin borrow it. Also the neutral switch likely needs to be replaced or bypassed...it used to start up intermittantly (hence all the new electrical) and I tracked it down to the neutral switch (by process of elimination). After a while I discovered when it would'nt start I would just wiggle the shifter and it'd start right up. Since the front end swap my mechanic rerouted the clutch cable and it now hasn't given me any issue, but I've only taken it out a handful of times since then so wanted to mention it. Anyways it is a great bike, very solid, and it comes with tons of spares and the entire original front end. Let me know if you are interested and I'll send you pix via email. I can be reached at (email removed). I have over $6,000 U.S. into this bike and I'm asking $4,000.
Cheers,
Andrew

If you are interested, shoot Andrew an email as the ad was only posted on 2/3/2009.  See the thread in it's entirety here.

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):
