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.

1991 Silver Suzuki GSXR400 For Sale in Oakland

The first GSXR400 For Sale on Gray Market Bikes For Sale! Naturally it's out of the Bay Area.

1991 Silver Suzuki GSXR400 on Bay Area Craigslist for $3800:

1991 Suzuki GSXR400 For Sale1991 Suzuki GSXR400 For Sale

Quote from Bay Area CL ad:

Up for sale is my 1991 silver Suzuki GSXR400. This bike was never sold in America but was sold in Japan and the UK instead. Bought it from a friend who bought it from someone else who collected grey market bikes and licensed them legally in California. So that makes me the third owner of this California plated bike. Bike is in good runnning condition with all fairings intact. This is a real head turner and great performer in the backroads or on the freeway. Handles excellent and power delivery is smooth and fast. Never raced or performed any stunts on this bike. Was mainly my weekend sportbike. Title on bike is CLEAR with about 31xxxkmh (which equals about 19xxx miles) on the motor. Speedometer cable broke at about 16k and since then I've changed the oil 6-7 times at my time of ownership. Usually I change the oil every 3 months or if I think I've rode it about 2500 miles.

[...]

Now this is 17 year old bike that is still running strong with enough power and handling capabilities to lose just about any 600-1000cc bike in the twisties. Though far from perfect there are a few areas that need a little TLC. Personally I have never dropped this bike but the previous owner (who is a friend of mine) did rub the left side of the bike against a small wall at about 5mph in a parking lot while trying to save the bike from falling. This resulted in a small crack to the front left faring where the side view mirror goes and also scraped the clutch plate cover. Mirror was replaced but the clutch plate cover gasket was never replaced and so it now leaks a little bit of oil. The leak is not bad but can be fixed with a new gasket. Fairings and paint are in good shape but do have a few minor scratches on them. Recently the bike has started to leak a little bit of gas underneath the gas tank if it sits unused for a few weeks. It's not a noticable leak but you can smell gas if you park it indoors. When I ride the bike for a few days the smell and leak dissapears so I'm thinking it may be a gasket or the fuel filter needs to be replaced underneath the tank.

While the mechanicals sound strong on this one, the bodywork sounds like it may need some sorting out. How hard is it to mend body work on a gray market bike? Leave a comment!
