I’m going say this is probably the rarest bike I will ever post on RSBFS.com.
Okay, so I found another rough one, but this one seems to be super duper rare! Walter Wolf was a successful businessman based in Canada. His ownership into racing started with a F1 team. He later ventured into Moto GP and used Gamma RG 500’s. Suzuki honored his team by making a limited number WWR edition RG 500’s, 400’s and 250’s. This particular model was only sold in Japan and I couldn’t nail down an exact production number, but did find a couple of informative sites that I will link up for you to review. The first one is a BBS post (disclaimer: I cannot verify this to be fact or fiction so you will have to be the judge) from an author named MannyU and he seems pretty knowledgeable
Here is a nice video that gives an idea of what Walter Wolf Racing was back in the day.
These looked pretty sweet back in the day if I do say so myself.
The owner has a lot to say about it and here is a partial list from the auction:
This is a very rare and exotic Suzuki RG400 Walter Wolf Edition motorcycle. It is from Japan originally.
New parts: Bridgestone tires, Battery, Fork tubes, Fork seals, Carb gaskets, petcock rebuilt.
Bike is far from perfect, although the original paint, where not scratched, has good clear coat and is not faded from sun etc. The bike has always been inside. It does have some corrosion from it’s previous home in Japan, but it should all come clean with the right care.
Bike has approx 9700 KM. Gauges all read KMH. Labels/warning lights are in Japanese.
This little bike needs some work, but would make for an AWESOME addition to any collection. Wouldn’t you agree?
