By now we all know the market for vintage GSXR-750s is red hot. This listing is already reflecting that with 17 bids pushing it past $8000 with several days still to go. Just one year after the first GSXR-750 revolutionized the sport bike world, the Limited Edition raised the bar even further. Production numbers are a frequent subject of debate, but the general consensus is between 500 and 1000 made with just 199 reaching the U.S. dealerships. The Limited Edition was a significant upgrade from the standard model, featuring a close ratio transmission with a dry clutch, electronic "anti-dive" technology, bigger forks and front brakes from the GSXR-1100, a fiberglass solo seat and special paint and graphics.
The seller is upfront about the condition, and while it's not quite "showroom" quality, it would make an excellent starting point for a restoration or *gasp* a really nice classic rider. You can check it out on eBay right here: 1986 GSXR-750 Limited Edition
1986 Suzuki GSXR 750 Limited edition. This is a very rare bike. 500 to 1000 made, depending on who you talk to. I've owned this bike 10 years. I bought it, rode it for 4 miles, everything worked as it should. I put the bike into storage until now. It will need tires, a battery, and a full service. The bike is very clean. The upper front fairing has been repaired and painted. The muffler heat shield has a scrape on it. The wheels have been painted white. As far as I can tell, the rest of the paint is original and in very nice condition. With a servicing and a little cosmetic work, this bike would be near perfect. Overall it is in excellent condition.. Production date is 3/86. 7183 original miles. I have a NOS. foam gauge bracket , red Suzuki decal for upper front fairing, and an air filter. New after market Lockhart Phillips smoke wind screen, bubble headlight cover., and very rare supplementary service manual, and a microfiche card for the limited edition.
