2005 Suzuki GSX750R Barry Sheene Replica
This one is really fun because Barry Sheene Replicas never came to the states, so bear with me as I attempt to describe what sits here before us. I felt especially compelled on this one as I love racing history (Barry Sheene – ’76 & ’77 GP Champion) and my personal Suzuki (RM250 2 stroke) also shares the K5 designation.
Enough pretext, on to the bike! There were only 50 Barry Sheene Replicas produced in model year 2005, certainly qualifying this bike for rare status. I believe that the only difference between a production GSXR and this bike is the paint scheme. The variations from stock condition are apparent in the mirror gold headlight cover/windscreen, frame sliders and the Yoshimura exhaust. More from the seller:

The asking price is about $12,500.00 in US dollars, which seems about right had it been imported here. The trouble for us yanks is the expense of putting it on a container. Luckily, our UK and certain European readers will not have such concerns. to see the seller’s contact information and more photos.
