Vacaville, CA – 7,700mi – $1,225 w/ Reserve
Okay, so last week I posted a clean SRAD GSX-R750 with the proclamation that I rarely see them in that condition for sale. The last one was pulled from ebay before the auction could run it’s course, so I am sad to say that I have no idea what it would have gotten bid up to. I still think these are a cool and affordable bike that you don’t see often. I see 30x more limited Ducati’s for sale and on the street than I see clean/original SRAD GSX-R’s. Some people are strongly apposed to these, but I still don’t care.
1996 Suzuki GSX-R 750 For Sale on eBay
This one comes to us from central California and appears that the only reason the seller has to let it go is because of some unfortunate events with the DMV (see description below for details). This bike is in stock condition except for the exhaust and a jet kit. The fairing looks very good and free from any major scratching or evidence of damage, so its looks like this one has never been down.
From the seller:
I purchased this Suzuki from my brother in Indiana, it sat in his garage for years, I installed new tires, battery, air filter, oil and oil filter and cleaned up the carbs. I drove it to California DMV only to find I could not register it in California because it only had 5500 miles on it. California law states that any vehicle with less than 7500 miles and does not have California Emissions can not be registered in the state. So I put my brothers plates on it and put on the required miles only to find out that the bike was now in DMW records and can never be registered in the state of California. The Bike is stock except for the D&D pipe and a jet kit. Runs great, could run better with the Carbs synched.
There you have it, another clean mid 90’s GSX-R750. Granted it may not be as collectible as the same bike from 10-years prior, but give it some time. The bike has lower miles than previous one we listed, and comes in an uncommon color combo. Hate it or Love it, this bike is clean and offers a chance to own a unique bike for a reasonable price. One seller’s misfortune is another’s opportunity. Check out the auction here and place your bid!

If you’re looking for a nice, clean ’91 GSX-R 750, then Sin City has something to offer. This is a solid example of an early GSX-R that looks to be in good shape and pretty much stock. Finding one in this condition is not easy, since most were put in ditches or into telephone poles. Or they were modded unrecognizable.
From the seller-
A COLLECTORS DREAM THIS 1991 GSXR- 750 IS THE LAST OF ITS KIND. TRULY PRESERVED WELL TAKEN CARE OF AND PROFESSIONALLY MAINTAINED AND ADULT DRIVEN FOR OVER 20 PLUS YEARS . THERS NOT ONE HAIRLINE SCRATCH OR BLEMISH ON ANY PART OF THIS BIKE .THE BIKE RUNS PERECT ITS ALL STOCK EXCEPT FOR THE PIPE THAT SOUNDS GREAT AND CARB PODS WHICH ARE TUNED PERFECT I START THE BIKE UP EVERY TWO WEEKS TO KEEP THE CARBS FRESH. TRULY THIS BIKE FEELS FASTER THEN MY 1997 CBR 900. YOU WILL NEVER SEE AND FIND A BIKE LIKE THIS ONE WITH ONLY 15000 MILES . THAT IS IN SHOWROOM CONDITION . I HOPE WHO EVER BUYS THIS BIKE WILL CONTINUE TO KEEP IT LIKE I HAVE . FOR ANOTHER 20 YEARS . ANY QUESTIONS PLEASE FEEL FREE
The importance of the GSX-R 750 is pretty much known to everyone in the sportbike world. This is a nice example that is relatively unmolested aside from the aftermarket pipe and windscreen. Mileage isn’t too high and everything looks to be in good shape. Seller says the bike runs perfect but you’ll always want to do your homework and make sure.
I love the GSX-R and always like to see nice clean older examples out there. If you don’t have the money, then just grab $100 bucks and go to Vegas, put it all on black and let it ride. Or if you do have the money, check the auction!
But, you should still probably go to Vegas.
New Windsor, NY – 9,421mi – $2,125 w/ Reserve
I may be taking a giant leap into the fire in the eyes of those who will immediately say “Hey Buddy! They made thousands of those bikes! They aren’t rare!” You would only be partially correct. Yes, these we mass produced back in their day, and maybe in 2000 you wouldn’t consider them rare. Flash forward 13 years and this bike is now 16 years old. How many clean and stock SRAD GSX-R750’s do you see up for sale? Go ahead, look. That’s right, there aren’t many. These have succumb to 16 years of road rash, ill-care, extended swing arms, Spider Man paint themes, and general disregard.
The SRAD GSX-R’s were a giant leap of faith for Suzuki back in the day. The bike was completely redesigned from the ground up in hopes of pushing the envelope like the original GSX-R750’s did. The SRAD model’s may not have a lot of fan fare or be touted as a huge achievement in the world of sport bikes. But they did lay a solid foundation for new ideas that continued the GSXR blood line today. The GSX-R750 is still going strong and is one of the best available sport bikes today.
The GSXR-750 represents the perfect blend of power, weight and handling. The example up for sale here is all original and in very good condition. With only 9,421 miles on the clock, it still has plenty of life left on it. Why should you buy this bike? If you are a Suzuki collector, then this one should fit nicely next to the older GSX-R’s you have. Also, this one should break the bank. These were never meant to be collected and every Kevin Schwantz fan back in the day bought these and rode the shit out of them. Hence, finding a clean one is now difficult. If this is your cup of tea, then you are in luck! If it’s not, then you should be ashamed of yourself. Either way, check out the auction here and place your bid!

The GSX-R 750 is no stranger to RSBFS, and folks know that I will write up pretty much any I find that are now old and rare. That includes this red and white ’89. Many folks arguer over the best year and version of the 750, but I would take ‘em all. The GSX-R 750′s importance to the sportbike world cannot be overstated and everyone should own one, at least once.
Here’s the seller’s info-
1989 GSXR 750 with 17,080 miles, survivor!!!
I purchased this bike several years back with intention to keeping in my collection.
Over the past year I installed new battery, cleaned the carbs and serviced the bike to keep it running, rode couple time every summer, this bike is mechanically completely stock, except for Yoshimura exhaust, K&N air filter, turn signal and few other minor items.
The bike still has all oem plastics and decals, keep in mind this is 24 years old so there is some cracked plastic, and recently, a dent on the tank next to the seat, (ouch..) but over all in good condition for it’s age, This is a desirable and very collectable bike!
Tires will need to be replaced soon.
Text (or call) me if you have any question
$250.00 Deposit Required at end of auction.
Cash or cashier’s check.
This bike isn’t 100% stock or is it totally mint. It’s got some replaced parts and some cracks and dings that happen over a period of 24 years. It does look pretty good for its age and these bikes are rare as surviving this long is a miracle in itself. Mileage isn’t too bad either.
As I’ve said before, they ain’t making any more of these. If you can give it a good home, check the auction out!

When the first water cooled GSX-R came on the market, it certainly had a fresh and modern style but failed to impress when put on the scale. With 15kg extra “fat” this could hardly be compensated by a few additional horses. When it comes to motorbike design, I am a big fan of the “lightweight philosophy” and believe that the right recipe is in this direction rather than in search of the extra power at extreme rpms. Nevertheless Suzuki have been brave in changing the design of the “sport bike par excellence” the original GSX-R and we need to give them credit. The new generation Gixxer was given a rock solid chassis that you wouldn’t be able to upset if you tried hard. In the effort of keeping a compact design, the cooling aid provided by water and it’s radiator was combined with the already present oil cooling. The model we have here, is a second generation W that hit production in 1993.
Undoubtedly those double headlights covered with an additional mask (plastic for less weight in its second generation, glass in the first) for better aerodynamic are a good example of smart engineering. On one side you’d like to keep the aggressive looks provided by the double lights and on the other improve performance.
The 1993 Gixxer is a well built motorbike with a lot of attention to details. The quality of every component is evident, from the aluminum frame to the instrument cluster and handlebar commands.
The capacity of 750cc means that you’ll get your power toward the high end of the engine speed counter (on my 1994 model there was a dip of torque at about 4000 rpm), but this is the idea of a sport bike isn’t it ? With more than 100 hp, a distinctive style, lots of quality throughout, a comfortable position and all of this in a reliable package , this W sample is smart money. With less than 22000 km and in 100% original trim, the asked 2700$ are well worth it. I mean what do you buy with this money ?
Here we are still talking about a Suzuki super sport, a bike that will easily hit 250 km/h and will always make you feel you are sitting on a race bread horse. The seller will get he bike tested and verified by the authorities at he time of purchase as an additional quality certificate for your purchase. Judging from the pictures there can’t be anything wrong with this. Winter is over and a new battery is the only thing you’ll have to budget on top. That will round nicely to about 3000 $.
If you’d like to enter the super sport bike world for the first time or just want to travel back in time and own once again your first dream bike, than go ahead and click on the link below. This 1993 pristine GSX-R 750 is available in Switzerland thorough the local auction site www.ricardo.ch.

The GSX-R is a milestone bike in the history of sportbikes. Alongside an original 900 Ninja or maybe a 916, the GSX-R created a moment in time that revolutionized the way the world looked at sportbikes. Like Kawasaki before, or Ducati later, Suzuki followed a simple concept: remove weight, add power. By painstakingly engineering every component to be as small and light as possible, Suzuki was able to blitz the competition both on the track as well as in the showroom.
While the R model LE bike with the dry clutch is the hot ticket, even the “garden variety” Gixxer of this era has the potential to wreck havoc in the canyons. The powerplant is impossibly small for the time period, as Suzuki tossed the liquid cooling and radiator in favor of air cooling (lighter) and enlarging the oil cooler to help cool the beast. Wrap that motor up in an aluminum frame and cover the whole thing with slab-sided bodywork that really sets the racebike tone, and a star is born.
From the seller:
A VERY RARE FIND
1986 Suzuki GSX-R
2,807 REAL MILES
MAJOR RECENT $928.79 SERVICE (89 MILES SINCE SERVICE)
ONE OF THE NICEST FIRST PRODUCTION GSX-R’S AVAILABLE
DON’T LET THIS ONE GET WAY
While the 1986 GSX-R750 was indeed the first year this motorcycle was made available in the US, it was actually released in other parts of the world in 1985. That makes the GSX-R lineup some 28 years old – and still going strong. That is not a bad run for a model that continues to be at the front of the pack as far as competition is concerned (anyone check out AMA Superbike at Daytona?).
Regarding value and interest, the masses have spoken; there are a substantial number of bids on this bike. The current price sits at $4,051, and there is no reserve. Somebody will be riding home a piece of history when all is said and done. For your chance to check out the pictures and details, click the link and jump over to the auction. Compared to some of the crazy prices we have seen on bikes that you likely would not ride much, this one is setting up to be a bargain in the making!
