Stage III Smog Alert! 1986 Suzuki RG500 in California

RG500_1

When it comes to the big, road-going two strokes, the RG500 Gamma usually tops the list as the smoker that is most like its GP counterpart. Arguably the sharpest and strongest of the two strokes offered during this era - and never officially imported into the United State - the Gamma has grown to legendary status as a rider as well as a collector. This particular example touts a nearly-impossible-to-get California title, which for the denizens of the Golden State will sell organs and first born children.

RG500_3

From the seller:
Here is the ultra rare 1986 RG500 suzuki Gamma! This bike has had a lot of money put into it! Starts first kick! Runs great! This bike has had a bunch of lance gamma work done to it, like his custom reinforced swing arm, carb check ball valve, jets and air filter kit, custom chambers as they weave between each other under the gas tank (was told they might be mark dent?) I can not confirm that as all of this work was done in the 90's including custom battery relocation with built in oil tank with clear hose on the side to show level. Large suzuki wheels with nice big rubber, custom gsxr front end with dual disks and tokico breaks on front and stock gamma on rear with new lines. This bike was in a private collection with some really amazing bikes keeping it company when I found it. This bike comes with clean California title and non op registration as it has not seen road use since 1996!

The seller has produced a "start up" video of the bike. The video definitely shows the less than museum quality condition of the plastics & paintwork, and some of the camera angles may induce nausea for those with motion sickness. But crank up the sound and listen to the glorious soundtrack of a rotary valve, square four two stroke!

Bidding has been brisk in the auction thus far - so there is clear interest in the bike. There is a reserve in place and the current bid has just crossed over the $5k mark. The bike does not appear to be street legal currently (missing headlight and mirrors), and as such is likely more a "work in progress" for those looking to show it off on the street. Still, we don't see many Gammas these days (there can never be enough!), and fewer still with CA plates and title. Check it out here.

A Pair of Stunning Low Mileage Suzuki RG500s Available in Australia

like new suzuki rg500 for sale

It really doesn't matter where you are in the world, if you're in the market for a beautiful pair of RG500s, your auction has arrived. While these aren't brand new, the combined mileage represents less than 3k miles! The pictures tell the rest of the story as these have obviously been cared for like museum examples. I still find myself surprised that such examples exist but to have two available at the same time, from the same seller, is really remarkable.

30 Miles New: 1986 Suzuki RG500 Gamma

Update 5.20.2014: eBay shows a sale at $36,900. Congratulations to buyer and seller! -dc

RG500_3

If you are in the market for a low mile example of one of THE most iconic motorcycles ever built, you'd better read on. This Minnesota-based 1986 Suzuki RG500 Gamma has a reported 30 miles on the clock, and is claimed to be "as new." That is a rare occurrence for a Gamma, as so many of these bikes have been flogged within an inch of their lives, then rebuilt, overbored, heavily modified, and flogged again. I love it when a bike is used as intended, but it can only be "new" once. Check this one out carefully, and then bid accordingly.

All Original 1985 Suzuki RG500 Gamma with just 4300 Miles

1985 Suzuki RG500 for sale

This lovely piece is located in Ontario, Canada but carries a New York title. Seller notes it is all original and all I could spot was the missing front turn signals. Probably time for matching tires too. But otherwise the opening bid is just $10k and the seller notes it carries a low reserve. We'll see! Thanks for the heads up on this one Frank.

Brand New Suzuki RG500 in Australia!

1985 Suzuki RG500 For Sale

Just in time for Cyber Monday is this brand new Suzuki RG500! The seller states it's never had gas in it, never been fired, and never had the delivery prep done either. It's a classified listing on eBay for about the equivalent of $50k USD and he's willing to ship worldwide. Internet buzz is already suggesting the price is too high but as they say, if you can find a nicer one for less...

You Like 2 Stroke Race Bikes? Behold! GP Bonanza in Switzerland

If you answered yes, to the above question, do the following:

1) go online and check out you bank account balance

2) choose any bike from below

3) contact the seller (see link at bottom of page)

4) realize a dream

Let's start with the one I consider my own dream: 1984 Honda RS 500 RF

45088055117132665331

 

4508887432266534713

 

4508898167266534713

 

4508890417266534713This bike was formerly raced by Swiss rider: Bruno Kneubühler.

The price is not disclosed. This bike, and all the others that follow, belong to a private collector who is selling them individually. If interested in any of these dreams, click on the link at the bottom of this article and contact the dealer that is advertising the bikes for the seller.

Were you a fan of Kevin ? How about this: Suzuki RG 500 converted track bike (the seller mentions it is an RGB but that doesn't seem to be correct):

4509572354266540713

 

4509576261266540713

 

4509579792266540713

 

If you are a little intimated by the 500cc monsters (I am not, I want one... desperately) or ,the before mentioned bank statement doesn't allow you to get close to one of these, then the following Suzuki RGV250 might be an alternative:

Suzuki RGV 250 track bike

4509825542266543713 4509829261266543713

 

4509849557266543713

 

 

Or this other RGV:

45099386822665447134509942667266544713

4509950026266544713 4509953776266544713 4509946307266544713

Are you over 40 and fancy something a bit older than that ? How about a 1969 3 cylinder H1 race Kawa in top conditions ?

4510097698266545713 4510101401266545713 4510109495266545713

 

Beautiful isn't it ?

4510105511266545713 4510113370266545713

 

I always said that Switzerland is a goldmine for rare motorbikes, what do you think ?

Well, let's get to business no?  Here's the link to inquiry for any of the above (an additional RS 500 is also available, not pictured here):
