Older Display Model: 1979 Yamaha RD400 Daytona Special

To start this post off on the right foot, let’s make it clear: if you win this auction and do nothing, you will have won a static display. Seller claims this 1979 model of the last of the RDs is mint – and cosmetically it does appear to be so. But after sitting quietly since 1986 (for the math challenged that is 36 years of inactivity), some mechanical effort may be required to wake the beast within. Is that worth it? Well, yeah, it is. After all, this is a freaking Daytona Special, and Special is more than just a name.

1979 Yamaha RD400 Daytona Special for sale on eBay

The final year of the RD400 series, the Daytona Special – or “F” model in Yamaha nomenclature – was already a throwback in a new world order of four strokes. Still, the venerable parallel twin had some tricks and some teeth. Updates with disk brakes (single disk front and rear) and industry leading cast wheels, the 365 pound (dry) RD was pushed along by 44 angry bee horse powers. Active riders were rewarded when keeping the tach above 5,500 RPM and on the boil, where the RD exhibits some of its race-bred DNA. Autolube oil injection keeps the two stroke happy while eliminating the gas station shenanigans of oil bottle guesswork. All told, this was the most up to date, refined and “last gasp” serious road-going two stroke available in America before the brief-lived RZ350.

From the seller:
The RD400 has been inside our dealership on display since August 1986. It is in mint condition for a 43 year old motorcycle. It does not currently run/operate. It has a clear Texas title.

The bike comes with 1 key, an original Yamaha brochure, and 2 (Daytona Special 400) stickers/decals.

We can assist with shipping if help is needed.

Well, not really that much info available. It is not clear if the seller has tried to get the bike running and given up, or if this is more of a push-it-out-the-door-as-is affair. Thankfully smokers are not that complicated, although I would firstly be concerned with whether the motor turns over (i.e. pistons/rings not seized in the barrels), followed by fuel system. If all that passes muster, the thing should run. From there a leak down test to check the crank seals is in order; no use getting it running just to have it run lean and seize up at an inopportune moment. And finally, be sure and budget in a new set of sticky rubber to take advantage of what comes next. Is that worth the effort? The Daytona Special is a pretty special bike, both mechanically as well as historically. To find one in such showroom condition with only 3,000 miles on the clock is rare indeed. Check out all of the details here, and then be sure and jump back to the comments and share your RD thoughts and experiences. Good Luck!!

Display Model – 1984 Yamaha RZ350 with 1,841 Miles!

Besides being a midsize beast with 52 hp and under 400 lbs., the RZ350 was distinctive having actually been offered in the U.S. for a few years.  Today’s Kenny Roberts commemorative has been on display at the dealer since your cell phone was 2G and looks extraordinary.

1984 Yamaha RZ350 for sale on eBay

Trying to modernize a venerable engine design, Yamaha threw the book at its 347cc two-stroke, including water cooling, oil injection, their power valve port system, air injection, and a lot more for California-bound bikes.  Power delivery was peaky, with relaxed acceleration under 6,000 rpm, and whoa Nellie ! from there to the 9,500 redline.  Elsewhere it looked its $2,400 MSRP with conventional steel frame, and suspension with pre-load adjustment only, though the triple disks, alloy wheels, and sharp bikini fairing were nice touches.  Almost too obvious to mention, the classic livery celebrates the multiple AMA number 1 and first American GP champion, who went on to become a race bike builder and GP team manager.

After thirty years on display, this RZ is a fantastic piece but not ready to roll anywhere but into the workshop.  It must’ve been well back from the velvet ropes, since there’s not a scrape or bruise to be seen.  Every picture shows off its trim lines, period expansion chambers look the part, and the vapor canister missing from the engine bay seems to indicate it’s a 49-state model.  RSBFS contributors raised a collective eyebrow at the seller’s use of the word “mint” on a non-running bike, but considering it’s pushing 40 the condition is remarkable.  Just a note accompanies the eBay auction:

The RZ has been inside our dealership on display since 1991.  It is in mint condition for a 38 year old motorcycle.  It does not currently run/operate.  It has a clear Texas title.

The bike comes with 1 original key, the original owners manual, and an original Yamaha brochure.

Nothing like a stock showpiece to set the bidding on fire, and with a whole week to go this one will probably set some 350cc records.  Tires will stay wooden originals, but a few things could be shined up here and there, and maybe clean out the fuel system for the long term.  Then it’s probably off to a private museum for this RZ350, though it had a nice run in the dealership window.

2 – 1986 Suzuki GAG50 “Bomber” Editions For Sale!

We’ve posted two, maybe three, of these on the site in our long and storied history- What are the chances there are two for sale at the same time? Yeah, that chance is a whole lot slimmer than me, but I found them and here we are!

First up is this super fine example from Phoenix, AZ-

Make: Suzuki
Model: GAG50 – RB50 or GSX50
Edition: Bomber
Mileage: Not Stated
Price: Open your wallet a little wider
Location: Phoenix, AZ

2 years ago the bike was completely dismantled. All parts were Professionally cleaned, polished and detailed.
Wearable items such as brake pads, fork seals and dust guides ,grips, cables and tires were replaced with Suzuki OEM parts. Carb. was also rebuilt. Complete Re chrome of the exhaust system.
Retains Original Paint, plastics and decals.
Complete Fluid servicing of All systems. When all work was completed, the bike was put inside my house and remains there in the condition shown and described.
Cosmetic Flaws : the seat has a slight discoloration on a (small area 1×2) , and there is small amount of spider web cracks around a few of the windshield fastener screws. which are on the windscreen itself.
All of the Original Plastics and finishes on Everything else, are Superb. Not Flawless, nor Perfect.
Much time and effort has been taken to leave the bike as original as possible.
In the last 5 years there have Only been maybe 6 or so sold.
Prices as high as $15,000 and as low as 6,000.The average condition and price is 10k.
I consider this example to be above average.

You know the old saying “If you have to ask for the price, you probably can’t afford it”? I guessing that applies here, but there’s also another saying “Buy once, cry once!” Which carries a lot of weight when purchasing rare motorcycles- don’t you agree?



“I went from Phoenix, Arizona all the way to Tacoma, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Las Vegas.” -Steve Miller Band.

The second one will be sold at the Mecum Auction next week. Mecum put their IT folks to work and blocked my smooth brain from copying and pasting their pictures, but with a nasty work flow, I managed one for you.

Make the jump here to the Mecum Auction

Mileage: 875
Price: 2022 Crazy Auction Price
Location: Las Vegas, NV

This one seems to suffer from the dreaded JDM corrosion on the swing arm and lower frame. It also has a few more bumps and bruises than the Phoenix machine, but I suspect this one is unrestored and is in it’s original state. Which do you prefer?

If you follow some of the larger online auction sites you’ve seen the astronomical sale prices on motorcycles. If you’re in the market for a GAG50 and have been specifically jonesing for a Bomber edition now is your time. My thinking is you’re better off biting the bullet on the Phoenix machine because once the Mecum machine runs over the auction block, the Phoenix machine will cost you a lot more.

What do you all think?

Oh, almost forgot the gear head deets- The GAG50 Bombers weigh 141 pounds dry and crank out a robust 5hp at 7,000rpms. They have a single hydraulic front disc and are streetable with all the required lights.

I read a few articles and it appears parts are scarce, but not unobtainable.

Parts on eBay

There are also plenty of online GAG50 support groups out there, but most of them are located in Europe and Asia.

Cheers!

Strong Silent Type – 1999 Triumph Daytona 1200 Special Edition

The top of Triumph’s Daytona line tilted toward the GT segment, but had sporty components and aerodynamics ready for warp speeds.  This example is presented by a N.C. collector, with low miles and excellent finishes.

1999 Triumph Daytona 1200 SE for sale on eBay

Based more on the big Trophy than other Daytona’s, the 1200SE used Triumph modular engine, with revised cams and cylinder head to make a turbine smooth 147 hp.  The clutch is a little stiffer to handle the up-rated power, and Kayaba suspension is tuned for higher speeds.  The SE got 6-piston calipers for its 310mm disks to make short work of the 100-to-55 brake check.  Roomy fairing and relaxed riding position made long days cake. 

Not sure whether the seller is the collector, but this Daytona was evidently on display for an extended period.  Though tricky to photograph, the black and gold are quite elegant, and the painted forks aren’t all chipped up.  From the list of recent work it’s a safe bet that it was never de-fueled before parking, but it sounds like that’s been taken care of in the eBay auction:

This motorcycle is one of the last versions of the original Hinckley Triumphs launched in the mid-90’s. It is number 157 of the Special Edition series. Spent most of its life in a private collection with very few miles. A full service has been performed including new carb kits, new intake boots, new air filter, new throttle cable, new petcock, new spark plugs and new battery. The tank was removed and flushed. In-line storage shut-off valves installed. Recent oil and filter change. Very nice original paint and seat. Fork tubes have no pitting and seals are leak free. Everything else is leak free as well. Runs very well with no smoke.  Please see video – here –

Probably one of the nicest Special Editions out there. Nicer ones may be in museums or other collections. I did not ride this bike much, so I am not sure if there are any more bugs to be ironed out as a daily, high mileage rider. If any, it shouldn’t be serious. What I do know is, it is fast! Six pot calipers stop fast too!

Number 157 was on RSBFS back in – 2017 – and it seemed like that seller had done quite a bit of more cosmetic work.  Now with looking excellent and freshly tuned up, maybe the next owner will put some miles down.  Triumph moved quite a bit of their production to Thailand in the early 2000’s, and these Hinckley built cycles will see their collectible day come.  Until then the starting bid is low, and the hopefully the reserve will get this 1200 to a new owner in time for spring.

Anarchy in the UK: 1989 Kawasaki KR-1S 250

Although most RSBFS readers are demographically located in the US, I say never mind the bollocks. Sure, this KR-1S is located in Jolly Olde England, but it is a freaking KR-1s! Possibly the rarest of the regular 250cc two stroke set by manufacturer, the KR series has a reputation for being fast, fast, fast.

1989 Kawasaki KR-1S for sale on eBay!

Of all of the quarter liter smokers, the Kawasaki was generally considered a bit of a failure. Suzuki, Honda and Yamaha dominated the sales floor, as the more rare Kawasaki lagged behind. The downside of the fast, fast, fast component of the KR-1 is that these have also been known to be somewhat fragile, but those that have survived are piquing the interest of collectors. What was a relative “failure” to sell in the day makes this all the more rare today. And today’s sub-8,000 mile example is one that is worth a look.

From the seller:
Kawasaki kr1s 250
1989 g reg
7900 miles from new
1 former owner first for 30 years
Original order as good as they come
Original tool kit under seat /handbooks /
Original number plate /1 key fits all locks
Does run but could do with a service and mot
Bodywork near immaculate
Any questions viewings welcome

There is not as much info as we might like to know, and only a few pics of this beauty. The ask is $11,500 USD – which is significantly below the nearly $18k asked for this 1991 California plated dream machine. If you can handle the shipping and importing, this could be a find. Only 10,000 total units of the KR-1 250 series were made, with fewer being the KR-1S model as seen here (and rarer still, the coveted R model).

Check out all of the details on this 1989 Kawasaki KR-1S here. Good Luck!!

Ghezzi-Brian January 19, 2022

As Rare As They Come: 2002 Moto Guzzi GHEZZI-BRIAN FOLGORE

Ghezzi-Brian is on of those amazing motorcycle stories that combines engineering ambition and raw talent into a winning product.  Always on the cutting edge and pushing the boundaries, the company started with a simple goal, to win races.  In 1996 they won enough to claim the Italian SuperTwin Championship.  In 1998 they started selling everything from components to fully built bikes to anyone that wanted to ride the ultimate Moto Guzzi powered motorcycle.  The efforts of Ghezzi-Brian lead to the birth of what many see as one of the most desirable Italian bikes, the Moto Guzzi MGS-01.  The company is still very active and continues to push what is possible out of these wonderful machines.

The example today is claimed to be one of 2 Folgore in the United States.  Other sources have made a similar claim, and some digging around for past listings has not turned up any other examples.  The Folgore featured some lighter wheels and other small but meaningful improvements on an already exotic motorcycle.  Some of the best braking and suspension components were used to ensure this package lived up to the expectations of offering extreme performance on the road and track.  Overall the bike weighs 55 pounds less then the V11 that donated it’s engine.

From The Seller’s Listing:

2002 Moto Guzzi GHEZZI-BRIAN FOLGORE, 2002 Ghezzi Brian Moto Guzzi Folgore One of two imported to the US. One owner. OZ magnesium wheels with perimeter brakes.  Stock MG V11 engine and 5 speed gearbox means its reliable and easy to service.

OZ magnesium wheels with perimeter brakes, Ohlins shock, Bitubo exhaust.  Stock MG V11 engine and 5 speed gearbox means its reliable and easy to service. CA title. ” The Super Twin is built around an air-cooled 1,064cc V-twin from the V11 Sport that’s had its flywheel balanced, and a new full exhaust added. The 87hp mill acts as a stressed member of the mono-beam chassis that houses the airbox and oil-tank. Connected to the race-developed frame are adjustable 41mm inverted Paioli forks up front and an Ohlins (or Bitubo according to some sources) monoshock. The race-replica’s giant 420mm perimeter discs — which are attached to the rim and not the hub — and dual-piston calipers help slow the 427lb (dry) machine — 55lbs less than the unfaired V11 Sport — from its claimed 140mph top-speed.” Google it for more details. Very unique.

When most think of perimeter brake rotors, they think of Buell, but Ghezzi explored the concept for a while as well.  Shock arrangement and frame design are also rather unique and really tell a story of unbridled engineering.  There is a sense that these were never meant for mass production or to suit a well rounded owner, these are focused and purpose built.  What makes this proposition even more appealing is the relatively low service costs.  This is now powered by some MotoGP race engine that needs pistons every other oil change.  The V11 Moto Guzzi engine is know for being reliable and easy to work on.

The bike is being offered by Pro Italia for $29,999.  Data is almost nonexistent for pricing, and while that sum is not insignificant a buyer would struggle to find a rarer or more interesting Italian exotic for that price point.   With something this rare it is hard to imagine another chance to add something like this to a collection, but if the opportunity passes there is always some of the original press documentation we could sit, read and enjoy.

Featured Listing – 1992 Honda VFR400 NC30 For Sale!

Update 1.18.2022: SOLD to an RSBFS reader in less than a day! Congratulations to buyer and seller!

Contact us to see if your bike qualifies for a Featured Listing! -dc

Make: Honda
Year: 1992
Model: VFR400 NC30
Location: Dover, Delaware
Mileage: 11,782
Price: $12,000
Contact: Steve at 302-672-7223 or steve@speedwerks.com

Steve Says:
This Honda NC30 is from our clients estate collection. We took care of the more modern machines and are very familiar with this bike in particular.
Imported recently, he had us install the Tyga exhaust and jetting work. We also upgraded the radiators and cooling lines. New Chain and sprockets along with a complete service and detailing. This NC has steel braided brake lines front and rear.
This is one of the nicest looking and running NC’s we have had come through here.
Legally imported with all documentation,this machine was not registered before he passed. At 25 years old and with all import documentation, it is ready to be titled in the new owners state and name.


Tyga states their full exhaust system coupled with their Maggot silencer adds 7hp bumping it to 59hp and reduces weight by 50% over the stock exhaust. If 59hp isn’t enough for you, I’m quite certain the boys have a few gallons of leaded Power Mist Fuel to help you reach 60hp. 🙂
As mentioned, you can see the new sprocket, chain and braided rear brake line.


This one hasn’t been out much and only showing 18,962km or 11,782 miles on the odometer.


Dressed in Honda Ruby Red, an 18″ rear wheel takes care of the party end while the 17″ front paired with 296mm dual discs handles the business end.

As you can see by all of the high-res images- this little VFR is in excellent condition and the boys at the shop have it ready to roll. As a matter of fact, this one is so nice it may be better served posted up on a race stand in the toy room.

FREE nationwide shipping is included in the $12,000 price.

Reach out to Steve at 302-672-7223 or steve@speedwerks.com if you’re interested.

Ducati January 18, 2022

Trackday Tuesday Feature – 2012 Ducati Monster 1100 EVO Race Bike

Ducati packed a host of worthwhile changes into the 4th Generation Monster, and RSBFS reader Jonathan has modified his extensively for the racetrack.  With its Paul Smart style fairing, NCR look belly pan, and custom race-prep for just about everything else, this Monster race bike is ready for this season’s Battle of Twins.

2012 Ducati Monster 1100 EVO Race Bike for sale

Ducati massaged the air-cooled desmodue and achieved 100 hp for showroom machines, and was able to stretch valve adjustment intervals for the dual-spark motor.  Accompanying the big power was a heavily triangulated trellis from headstock to engine, and a cast aluminum subframe holding the single-sided swingarm.  Its high gear ratios are a natural for the race course, and the 43mm Marzocchi forks can handle the force of the 320mm cross-drilled brakes.  A plastic fuel cell hides under the tank covers, and the stock seat fairing has a remarkably similar shape to the racing seat.

Jonathan works in a Chicago motorcycle shop when he’s not practicing his AHMRA or BoT craft, and has raced and wrenched many different bikes.  The Monster has had the engine done by MotoCorse in Fort Lauderdale, and shows a dyno sheet with 90 rwhp.  There’s a long list of mods for the track, with a custom exhaust and seat subframe.  Here it is single-spaced:

2012 Monster 1100 EVO BOT1 Bike with PS1000 style fairing, Custom Aluminum Fairing Stay, Custom Aluminum Subframe Mounts, Custom exhaust, NCR style belly pan, race tail, and blueprinted engine from MotoCorse.

Has the following components and modifications:

Yoyodyne Slipper Clutch
Andreani Fork Cartridges
Penske Shock
Ohlins Steering Damper
Rapid Bike with Quickshifter
Zullo ECU Flash
Woodcraft Rearsets
Woodcraft Clip-Ons
Woodcraft Lever Guard
Aim Solo2 Aux Power Cable and Mount (Lap timer NOT included)
Throttle Tamer Tube
Brembo GP Mk2 Front Brake Master Cylinder
GP routed Brake lines (ABS deleted)
Shift Tech Muffler with Custom exhaust
BST Carbon Fiber Wheels
Brembo Supersport Rotors
Keyless Fuel Cap
Woodcraft Clutch Cover Guard
Pro bolt Race Spec Caliper Bolts
MotoCorse Performance Adjustable Camshaft and Layshaft Pulleys
Spare OEM Wheel Set with Rotors

Jonathan asks $22,000 with BST Carbon wheels and Brembo super sport rotors, or just $19,000 with stock wheels and rotors  He can be reached via email here – Tecnicomoto729@gmail.com

A short corner exit video shows the torque –

20220115 2012 ducati monster race bike on track

Especially with the carbon wheel set, the Monster road racer is up-to-date gear for a track day or club racing.  Race bikes always need more maintenance than their road cousins, but the 1100 dual spark is as reliable as they come, and apparently free of any major mishaps.  Spring is on the way and the calendar is already filling in.  Contact Jonathan to discuss this special Monster – Tecnicomoto729@gmail.com

Upsizing – 1985 Suzuki RG500 in Australia

Update: this listing expired overnight, but is still worth a look !  Push “See original listing”  -donn

Most RG500’s seen on RSBFS chronicle the lucky-if-you-can-hang-on 500 two-stroke, but this Aussie example has been bored out to 570cc and well equipped to handle the extra ponies.  It’s finished in a very good dub of Heron Racing’s 80’s livery, and looks just about flawless.

1985 Suzuki RG500 ( Australia ) for sale on eBay

Suzuki had delayed the road-going RG500 until GP technology had moved on a bit ( and engineers had also wrapped up their work on the GSX-R750 ) but it was still heralded as a race bike for the road.  Its 95 hp were a revelation for a ride weighing under 400 lbs., though the square four’s airboxes filled out the fairing.  Using a small cross section alloy chassis, Hamamatsu carefully engineered the RG500 to handle the power, along with air adjustable forks with anti-dive.  Smallish 260mm brakes and staggered 16 and 17-inch wheels were along the smaller, lighter line to quickness.

Evidently built and imported from England, this RG500 shows beautifully and has some later, larger brakes to go with its additional horsepower, and lightweight modular Astralite wheels.  Not quite sure what year this animal is, but there’re no significant differences over the three model years.  Suzuki had their own Skoal livery for a few limited editions, but this more faithful replica has a bit more flash.  Comments from the eBay auction:

Well this is a hard one as I absolutely LOVE this bike.
Bike was built in England and I have many many receipts, can’t remember when she was brought into Australia but it was a long time and has been previously registered in WA, so no issues there.
The bike is now a 570 with Jim Lomas pipes, Astra Light Wheels and bigger brakes etc, all of the original parts paper work and workshop manual go with the sale.
Plastics are all original Suzuki, also have the original pillion seat.
I ride this bike at least twice a month and it absolutely beautiful to ride, I am fortunate enough to have two RG’s and this is my favorite but due to downsizing she has to go.
This bike is an absolute show stopper and I doubt you will see another one like her, irreplaceable in my mind. 

Team Heron was contracted when Suzuki took a break from a works GP team, and had some significant success with factory support.  They even commissioned a series of – carbon fiber chassis and swingarms – which gave the fire breathing lump a stable if all-enclosing platform.  Suzuki’s Skoal livery was a tribute to the team’s efforts, and appeared on a few different models.  Nice to hear this example is ridden regularly, and looks so great even so.  The ask is right up there and the post-transaction costs won’t be insignificant, but could be a smart investment given the current market.

Featured Listing – 1989 Suzuki GSX-R 1100

Update 1.17.2022: The buyer couldn’t get this worked out when it sold so it’s been relisted. Links updated. *edit: just a few hours after we posted the bike sold. Congratulations to buyer and seller! -dc

If you have a bike for sale that would benefit from this kind of exposure, contact us for a Featured Listing. -dc

The RSBFS faithful will undoubtedly know Chris Perkins from GSXRonly.com. Chris has listed some amazing builds on this site, complete with the requisite photography and honest descriptions. And today’s bike is no exception, except that instead of a perfect resto or a mod-rod hammer style big bore build up it is more of a very clean survivor / rider example of the classic liter bike monster, the GSX-R 1100 in beautiful blue & white.

1989 Suzuki GSX-R1100 on eBay

Featured Listing – 1989 Suzuki GSX-R 1100 for sale on eBay

The GSX-R line should require no introductions on these pages, as Suzuki’s revolutionary race bike for the street bowed as a 750 in 1985, introducing light weight and race-spec components that redefined performance for the 750cc class. The 1100 model followed the next year, and similarly made existing liter bikes obsolete. But nothing remains static in the competitive arena of competitive motorcycles, and by 1988 the original 750 had already been upgraded in several areas, including a more robust frame. 1989 introduced similar changes to the 1100 (including a bump in displacement), resulting in the best handling and fastest big Suzuki to date. The 1127cc inline four – still cooled via a combination of air and 2 high-flow oil pumps – churned out 143 HP when new, could rip a quarter mile in the very low 10s, and nudged 170 mph flat out on the top end. Heady stuff for the 1980s.

From the seller:
1989 Suzuki GSX-R1100

15,600 miles
New Michelin tires
Yoshimura Duplex Exhaust
Repainted Rear Wheel
Great brakes, clutch and chain/sprocket
Cleaned and rebuilt carbs, new needle valves, ‘O” rings fuel lines and seals for the fuel delivery to the bowls
Lowers have been repainted due to tip over cracks and scuffs. Plastic welded and repainted with PPG products
Rear tail panels have had a few of the mounting nipples repaired.
Small crack left ear near the mirror on the upper fairing
Small crack (repaired from inside to stabilize) on right rear tail,
Small crack on left rear tail
Small crack on front fender
Scratches on the tank
Original white pearl paint is yellowing, as is typical for these bikes.
Metal is very nice, small scratch on right side of swing arm behind pipe
OEM reflectors, rear fender , rear tire hugger
OEM directional’s and mirrors

Running bike, Add fuel. Very fast, somewhat loud, but a lot of fun. If you are looking to have the rest of the bodywork painted, we can make that happen. I have the complete decal kit in hand. Otherwise, ride it as it is.

I try very hard to advise of all known defects so there is no confusion as to the condition, many times I am overly critical, but I have made a trip myself to get bikes, and have been disappointed at the description.

More from the seller:
This 1989 Suzuki GSX-R 1100 is a really nice, mostly original example of a survivor /rider that is in need of a new pilot. Clean Florida title in my name. Ready to assist in shipping, but it is the buyers responsible for making arrangements. Any question or offers, please call.

Asking price: $11,500

Contact information: Chris Perkins 407-492-5854 gsxronly.com

Today we are seeing earlier generation GSX-Rs evolve into true collector bikes. Time has been kind to the style and the legend that is the Gixxer, but so many of these models were not treated kindly in return. Therefore simply finding a serviceable example of one these bikes from the 1980s is a feat unto itself. And when you find one, you have work to do. Potentially a lot of work, depending upon the condition and how recently it was used. Today’s Featured Listing 1989 Suzuki GSX-R 1100 has already had a pretty thorough going over by the sounds of things, and Chris is very open as to the overall mechanical and cosmetic shape of the machine – in both pictures and words. The period correct Yoshimura exhaust and Lockhart tinted screen is just icing on the cake! If you have lusted after a classic GSX-R and are looking for a rider or if you seek a platform to build the bike of your dreams, check out all of the great pictures and then give Chris a shout and strike a deal. Good Luck!!
