This is one of those moments in your life that you may never experience again. For me it is one of those things that you think may be out there somewhere, but are just unsure until you see it. All I can say is “WOW, Absolutely Amazing!” Can you believe these are being offered for sale? Can you believe they even exist in this condition? I think it is awesome that they are being offered to the public and not to Barber or kept closed in private circles. Anyone care to guess what the reserve is?
From the seller:
YOU KNOW WHAT THESE ARE, SO I WON’T GET TOO MUCH INTO DETAILS.
THE 1986 LIMITED HAS 10.5 MILES AND IS IN “AS NEW” CONDITION, ORIGINAL OWNER RODE IT 10.5 MILES AND PARKED IT. IT IS 99% PERFECT, MINUS 1% FOR SOME TARNISH ON SOME OF THE HARDWARE. THE BIKE HAS A CLEAR US TITLE.
THE 1989 HAS 5.2 MILES AND IS IN “AS NEW” CONDITION, BIKE IS 100% PERFECT, HAVING ALWAYS BEEN STORED INSIDE & HEATED. THE BIKE HAS A BILL OF SALE ONLY AS IT WAS A JAPAN ONLY MODEL
These are already rare bikes, but to throw the “as new, 15 miles total” into the mix puts them in a whole new level of collectible RSBFS.
We’ve posted a couple of 86′ GSX-R LE’s recently, but the only differences between regular and LE GSX-R’s were a dry clutch and solo seat tail section. However, the RR version had numerous differences, but they were never brought to the US. Some of the differences included, but aren’t limited to, 40mm Slingshot Carbs, close ratio gear box, single seat and an aluminum gas tank. Personally, I’m digging the red number plate on the tail section. I’m going to keep an close eye on the auction and I’ll let everyone know how it ends.
