1994 Suzuki RGV250 Gamma VJ22 In Washington State

This looks like a very nice looking RGV250 VJ22!  Located in Seattle, Washington is an untitled 1994 Suzuki RGV250 Gamma with some new parts and spares.  The new parts consist of brakes, tires, chain and a titanium bolt kit; the spares are extra stock and aftermarket bodywork.  The seller states that this bike does run but, needs to be tuned correctly.  The bike also has an aftermarket exhaust fitted which, has Leo Vince stickers fitted to the carbon silencers--did Leo Vince make a system for the RGV?  This is a nice RGV project that will take some work to make it perfect but, the asking price is a realistic $2,500.  See this bike on Craigslist here.

1989 Suzuki GSXR 750RR

1989 Suzuki GSXR 750RR Homologation Japan Special - Super Rare and on ebay

UPDATE: as of 5.7.10 2:30est this auction has been taken down 🙁

Location: Carlisle, PA
Current Price: $1,655.00 with no reserve!!!
Mileage: 2,537

Yes, this baby will sell no matter what the price! That my friends is something to get excited about. These were originally released only in Japan and have graced the pages of RSBFS one or two other times. Although this one does have a few issues like 'it's been sitting for a number of years' and has what is described as a 'drop when moving' it is still an extremely rare Suzuki in the states. These Japanese models have that racer boy look and feel with the red number plate on the solo tail section. As I reported in my previous GSXR 750RR post some of the differences between the US standard issue GSXR and the Japanese one include, but aren’t limited to, 40mm Slingshot Carbs, close ratio gear box, single seat and an aluminum gas tank. In 1989 the spec sheets said these made about 120hp and weighed in at 411#'s dry weight. In 1989 that was a ton of power for a 750.

Here's the bike that I'm blabbering about:

1989 Suzuki GSXR 750RR Japan Spec

From the listing:

Here you have a Suzuki GSX RR 750 Hypersport

This is the race built production bike built by Suzuki.

Oil cooled engine

Never released in the USA

Amazing bike to own.

Has only done 4803 kilometres in its lifetime.

Has a few scratches and marks attributed with age

The bike was previously ridden by a collector in the family. The bike has been dropped on the left and has some scrapes on the belly side. Other than this the most info I have been able to discover is the original owner dropped the bike when moving it. It has apparently had no accidents other than this.

Bike was running and then has been stored for the past 15 years.

The bike is a bit dusty and the metal could use a polish, due to the time in storage. The bike was well cared for. The bike would need a major service as it has been sitting for around 15 years without being turned over. I have put it in gear and moved the bike to check compression, and it rolls with no problems. Hope this helps

The original owner is gone so I cannot find out much detailed info.

500 limited edition (some claim 1000) GSX-R750R ( the 'Double R') serving as ready-to-race platform was released to Japanese market. The newly redesigned engine reverted to the original long stroke (70 x 48.7mm) configuration. Crankcase, crankshaft connecting rods and clutch were among the critical areas receiving more attention necessary for the race duty. The 'Double R' also received new 40mm Slingshot carburetor and 4-into-1 exhaust pipe as well as close ratio gearbox, rear swing arm with sub frame, new aerodynamic fiber with large air intake duct, solo seating with race number box and 19 liter aluminium fuel tank as standard equipment. The dry weight measured, 187kg.

Okay, so as previously mentioned the bike has been sitting for quite some time and it has been dropped. As Dan (from the east coast) pointed out to me the seller conveniently didn't show a photo of the damaged side. Also, in the head on photo you can see the forks are oxidized pretty bad and you can see just how dirty the bike is from being stored. Taking all of that into consideration the price is still way cheap in my opinion. So cheap in fact at the time of writing this post I am the current high bidder 🙂 (My wife is going to kill me when she finds out) I did send a message, through ebay, to the seller asking them for a picture of the left side. If I get one or one is added to the auction I'll update the post for everyone that is following this post.

Cheers!

1989 Suzuki RGV250 Gamma Project Bike In California

This is a great two stroke project RGV250 in California!  Located in San Francisco, California is a 1989 Suzuki RGV250 Gamma with no mileage listed.  This seller states:

This is a non-running project bike. New top end, new fork seals, new steering head bearings. I have stock and after-market exhaust pipe and a few other parts to go with bike, but otherwise what is shown in photo is it.

The asking price on this RGV is $1,500.  This is a good price for someone who knows how to finish this bike and is looking to track it or knows how to get a title as it probably doesn't currently have one.  These are great little two strokes making 58hp while only weighing in at 284lbs.  If you've got some time, have a look at this RGV on Craigslist here.

1996 1986 GSXR750R Limited Edition in AL

1986 GSXR750R Limited Edition in AL

These bikes need no introduction.  On your mark: get set:  gooooooooooo!  How fast can you write that check?   This Limited has appeared on Craigslist down in Pell City, Alabama which is about 30 miles East of Birmingham.  From a quick scan of the pictures it appears to be in good condition and not heavily modified.  I do notice a pipe, case cover and updated wheels.  I wish the seller had included the mileage:  always at the top of the list of buyers questions.

Here is what the seller has to say:

Offered for the first time ever. I am only the second owner, haven ridden this Classic for 22 years. This Limited has never been wrecked and has been garage kept since new. If you are a collector, or you want to ride the first and most rare sport bike in the world, this is your bike.

The seller has the bike listed for $8,900.  That sounds right in the ball bark if the bike is in good shape and has relatively low mileage.  I'm assuming the seller still has the lower fairing and it would be a plus if he had the original wheels as well.  I wouldn't wait long if you are interested.  I don't think these stay for sale very long at all.  Check it out here.

Low Mileage 84 or 85 Suzuki GSXR400 on Ebay

Low Mileage 84 or 85 Suzuki GSXR400 on Ebay

It looks like a nice project GSXR400 has appeared on Ebay.  Lets start with the model year.  I don't know if the seller just mistyped and didn't proofread or just does not know but this is not a 1993 model.  It is either an 84 or 85 model and I don't believe there was any technical differences between the two years.  The bike does have a title so that is definitely a plus.  From looking at the pictures the bike has taken a slide or two but nothing too major.  Mileage wise, they are listing 3,500 miles (possibly KM's?).  Either way that is extremely low for a bike that old.  I always question older bikes with really low mileage.  Nothing against the sellers but as a buyer you have to be weary.  Other than the scrapes it looks like the bike was taken care of from the pictures.

From the auction:

THIS IS VERY GOOD RUNING CONDITION SUZUKI 400 CC VERY RARE COLLECTOR BIKE INPORT FROM JAPAN WITH  TITLE READY TO RIDE TIRES ARE CRACK  BIKE RUNS SOME PLASTIC DAMAGE SHOW ON PIC

 

In a perfect world I like more info on grey market imports but you have to work with what you have.  I said project earlier because this bike will really take a good looking over and probably some amount of disassembly to make sure everything is cool.  Would you ride on a bike that old without seeing everything with your own eyes?  Once it is broken down it will take a little work to track down the needed parts.  I personally enjoy this detective work during rebuilds.  You will head into the garage in the Fall and emerge in the Spring with a nice unique little bike.   There might not be too many willing to take that sort of project on so you might catch a deal on the auction (depending if a reserve is set of course). .

1998 Suzuki TL 1000R with only 267 miles!

1998 Suzuki TL 1000R 99.9% original and only 267 miles..

Location: New Hampshire
Mileage: 267 - unbelievable!
Price: $4,000.00 starting bid with reserve

I'm not sure what it is lately, but the low mileage bikes seem to be coming out of the woodwork. This latest offering logged an average of 22.25 miles per year and that's not to be confused with MPG either. This is a first year TL1000R so I'm assuming they'll be some die hard TL fans getting in on the action for this one.

I believe these were produced from 1998 to 2003, but due to a combined nasty reputation for crashing, piggish weight and lack luster track performance Suzuki pulled the plug on these. Originally thought to be Suzuki's answer as the Ducati killer, it just didn't work out that way. The TL does enjoy a nice cult like following of which our very own RSBFS author Alex is part of. He recently did an extended trip on his and reported back that it was quite enjoyable aboard his TL. Although his has a few more miles than this one it is decked out in the 'HEY! look at me on the yellow bike'.

Have a look at this time capsule:

Suzuki TL 1000R for sale

The seller has posted several more large pictures on the auction site. If you're interested in this yellow beast .

Cheers!
