Featured Listing: 1986 Suzuki GSX-R712

Update 2.20.2018: SOLD! Congratulations to buyer and seller! -dc

Update 2.12.2018: The GSX-R712 has been kept warm all winter in the living room and is ready to ship and run at your house this spring. Price has been dropped to $9,750.


The 1980s were a watershed era for sport bikes. This was a period of constant escalation between the Big Four manufacturers out of Japan. Amidst the fighting came many new innovations and a quantum leap in performance. And none epitomized the arms race quite like the revolutionary GSX-R from Suzuki. A winner in the showroom and a clear favorite for amateur and professional racers alike, the air/oiled cooled GSX-R was a definitive game changer for riders everywhere. Fast forward 30+ years later, and while the 80's era GSX-R is still striking, performance has not kept up with modern machinery. That is where this owner stepped in, creating a vintage 80s hot rod with performance enhancements to bridge the gap. This is an amazing build that we know RSBFS readers can appreciate; this one-of-a-kind machine has the stance and the history to give it serious street creds, but with updates to back it up in the canyons.

So how do you build a GSX-R712? Start with a good 1986 example of a GSX-R750 - well regarded as the best chassis of the day. Remove the 750cc engine and replace it with a second generation GSF1200 Bandit motor. Purists will note that the 1200 Bandit was an evolution of the GSX-R1100 engine, which makes this a perfect fit from a lineage perspective. Once that epic change has been completed, you then turn your attention to, well, everything. Rebuild the front end with new and upgraded components. Work over the swing arm and rebuild everything connected to it. Replace and upgrade braking components. Anything still stock must be completely refurbished. With the mechanicals in perfect shape, you then turn your attention to cosmetics. This is where little changes can make a huge impression. Source new lightweight bodywork and make subtle alterations to clean up the classic lines. Dress up the wheels and powdercoat to suit. Apply paint and graphics that act as an homage to the original, but modernize as well. Then step back and behold the glory of what you have created: a GSX-R712.

Bikes like this amazing GSX-R Rod do not come along often. This is mainly because this is a very expensive, time-consuming process requiring patience and know-how. Most riders lack both the cash and the skill to create something this stunning, but would not hesitate to drool over it (and lust for one). A bike this good makes a personal statement that tells the world that you have great vintage taste and yet you also worship at the altar of performance. It is also likely a losing proposition for the seller; I could easily see $10k worth of parts in this rocket, not counting paintwork or specialized labor.

Slab-sided Gixxers are HOT right now - we see both collectable as well as pretty rough examples on a semi-regular basis. And we see the occasional Limited Edition unicorn - with prices in the stratosphere. This particular example takes the basic slabbie form and uses it as the foundation for a real hot rod superbike. Think of it as a higher performance slabbie with the cache of an L.E., but without the price tag. There is no doubt that this is a special bike - something the entire RSBFS staff agrees upon. The conversion is super sano, the lines are amazingly clean, and yet the whole package retains the classic looks of the original GSX-R. Check out the large number of very high-res pictures. I dare you not to fall in love with this bike. Once you do, reach out to the seller (stathome@bellsouth.net). You cannot build this bike for the asking price, and you will never see another like it again. Good Luck!!

Gamma Time! 1986 Suzuki RG500 Gamma

For Sale: 1986 Suzuki RG500 Gamma

Hot on the heels of another rare and limited 1986 Suzuki (GSX-R 750R Limited) comes this RG500 Gamma. And just like the Gixxer, this one has been modified a bit by the current owner.

With non OEM plastics (Air Tech) and the solo tail this bike has a rather unique look about it. The tri-color paint is also interesting, adding an almost-Italian flair to the affair. The rest of the bike is a regular potpourri of who's who in the two-stroke world, including Lance Gamma (engine rebuild, carb parts, tranny parts), Tommy Crawford (pipes), Race Tech (suspension), Bob Truelson (carb work) and more.

From the seller:
THIS IS THE SUZUKI GAMMA YOU HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR . ONE OF THE FINEST EXAMPLES IN THE TRI-STATE AREA. THIS BIKE IS ORIGINALLY FROM CANADA AND HAS HAD BEEN TITLED AND REGISTERED IN NEW JERSEY. I HAVE OWNED THE BIKE SINCE 1997. THE MOTOR WAS REBUILT
BY LANCE GAMMA WITH ALL THE CORRECT OEM SUZUKI PARTS EVERY BEARING EVERY SEAL EVERYTHING . THE CARBURETORS WERE BORED OUT BY BOB TRUELSON AND HAVE THE UP DATED LANCE GAMMA BALL FLOAT VALVES , TRIPOD AIR FILTERS AND SUPPLEMENTAL PETCOCKS . THE TRANSMISSION HAS UPDATED GEARS ,LANCE GAMMA CLUTCH AND SPRINGS AND WERE UNDER CUT BY FAST BY GAST IN NEW YORK STATE . THE EXHAUST WAS CUSTOM MADE BY TOM CRAWFORD. THE FRAME IS STRAIGHT AND UNTOUCHED. SWING ARM IS POLISHED AND IS SUPPORTED BY A FOX SHOCK. THE FRONT FORKS HAVE RACE TECH EMULATORS THAT WERE DONE BY LANCE GAMMA AND IS HELD STEADY WITH A STEERING DAMPNER. FRONT AND BACK RIMS ARE ORIGINAL AND HAVE NEW BRAKE PADS FRONT AND BACK. FRONT TIRE IS METZLER ME33 LAZER AND BACK IS METZLER MEI MBS NEW O-RING CHAIN AND 40T SPROCKET. REAR CALIPER IS NOT STOCK AND IS MOUNTED UNDER THE SWING ARM. REAR MASTER IS ORIGINAL AND THE FRONT IS 5/8 BORE WHICH IS BIGGER THAN STOCK. BRAKE LINES ARE GOODRIDGE S/S. BIKE STOPS GREAT. FUEL TANK IS ORIGINAL. THE BODY WORK IS MADE BY AIR TECH INCLUDING THE RARE ONE PIECE TAIL SECTION . WIND SCREEN IS ZERO GRAVITY. THIS BIKE IS READY TO RIDE, HANDLES GREAT AND GOES LIKE CRAZY. I ALSO HAVE THE ORIGINAL PARTS, OWNERS MANUAL, MICROFICHE, SOME EXTRAS AND AN UPSIDE DOWN GSXR FRONT END THAT WAS MODIFIED BY LINDEMINN ENGINEERING TO MATCH THE RG500'S WEIGHT. SIMILAR BIKES HAVE SOLD FOR CLOSE TO $18.000.00 .

Here's the deal with a modified bike like this: It could be an outstanding example of all the mods working in harmony, or it could be a collection of parts waiting to suck you in with promises of high performance but in reality becomes a long slog of chasing down issues and re-modifying the modifications. I have no reason not to believe what the seller says above - that this is a crazy fast and well sorted machine - but my spidey sense always starts to tingle in this situation.

This modded and rodded Gamma is available right now via auction. Opening bid is set way up high at $10,600. This number is not out of the range for the bike, but such a high bid has likely scared off a lot of bidders. It doesn't help that the seller references an $18k number - which is something that I don't see this particular bike reaching (although I've been wrong before).
