’88 Suzuki GSX-R Slingshot Edition Up for Grabs


This post is in our archives. Links in this post have been updated to point to similar bikes available to bid on eBay.

Location: Rockford, Illinois

Mileage: 18,020

Price: Auction, currently $2,500 with a reserve

Sorry, but I had to throw another old GSX-R into the mix. Actually, I’m not sorry. I love these bikes. We’ve had quite a few older GSX-R’s on here lately and I’m glad they’re always coming out of the woodwork. This bike is a Slingshot, a name given to the bike after the Y-shaped air channels leading into the carbs. The engine was revamped to a shorter stroke, something that was thought to bring more revs and therefore, more power. Didn’t really work out that way. But still a cool bike.

Here’s what the seller has to say-

Hello and welcome to my auction. Up for sale is my 1988 Suzuki GSXR 750 Slingshot. This is an excellent example of this classic machine that is sought after by many. This bike is in very nice condition and you won’t find many if any as clean as this one is. This bike is almost all original except for a few minor aftermarket parts. The bike is pictured with the matching O.E.M. solo seat on it but it does come with the original passenger seat set up as well. I have owned quite a few of these 1988 – 1990 GSXR’s and this one is one of the nicest that I have owned. I love these older GSXR’s because of how awesome they look and are to ride. Whenever I pull this bike out I get all kinds of looks and everyone who is not familiar with the year of the bike thinks that is new. Please only bid if you intend on following through with the purchase. Whoever ends up buying this bike is going to be happy that they did. This bike runs awesome and looks awesome as well. I want to thank you for looking and good luck bidding. If you have any questions please e-mail me or call and ask for Bob. The buyer is responsible for any and all shipping charges. There is NO WARRANTY expressed or implied. I reserve the right to end the auction at any time as I will be putting the bike up for sale locally as well.

And some photos-

This bike isn’t a bone stock example but looks to be fairly clean for its age and mileage. Clearly has a Yoshimura exhaust, not uncommon on this or any other GSX-R. Windscreen and turn signals are replaced. The OEM solo seat comes with it, which is a bonus in my book. If you want to ride two up, the original seat is included.

All in all, this looks like a pretty clean ride for someone who wants to maybe start collecting or just have a killer older GSX-R to show off. Whichever one speaks to you, go make a move and place your bid!

  • The 1996 Kawasaki ZX-7RR in Toronto is a fake. Notice the Foot peg brackets on the left side subframe. Polished frame? Two different colored wheels? No thanks. Also, it has been on sale for quite some time…no one has snapped up the “great deal” funny hey?
