Location: Hollywood, California
Price: Auction, BIN $5,500
Well, here we have one of my favorites. I’ve written on various early models of the Suzuki GSX-R 1100 and I love them all. This bike was a serious machine when it was released and the air and oil cooled motor put out extreme power (as the seller highlights), so much so that the first year here risked having the chassis overwhelmed by the power. This bike along with the GSX-R 750 really set a new course for sportbikes. The engine in this bike lived on in later Suzuki machines and many a drag racer due to its bulletproof nature.
Here’s info from the seller-
Clear California Title
This model absolutely turns heads everywhere I go.
Runs like a top- Just dialed in by Yoshi and crew at World famous ‘Garage Company’ in Los Angeles
I have done my best to take pics of the trouble spots…there are only a few…its just too fast for me. 131 horse power. This is the bike that started the revolution…
Bike is sold as is. I’d prefer you to pick-up locally. If I ship it, it will cost you out of your pocket for everything….everything.
Additionally, I have all the stock blinkers front/rear for this bike.
Again this bike is being sold as is…it’s vintage now….25 years old. It will do nothing but go up in value.
I have 100% positive feedback
I will accept Paypal or cash-period.
Please ask any and all questions.
And some more photos to get your attention-
As you can see by the pictures, this looks to be a pretty clean example of a first year GSX-R 1100. The seller highlights some small flaws in the pics and states that the original turn signals are included. Maybe not a major thing but important as these bikes in original condition are becoming more and more rare. Imagine the many that were wrecked and now are gone forever. The seller also highlights a recent service and claims the bike runs well. Mileage should not be issue given the reliability of the motor. And the blue and white paint. Lord help me.
So, take this home right now for $5,500? I think that’s a pretty good deal. I can’t imagine that this bike doesn’t become more appealing as the year’s go by. I don’t think they’ll ever lose their luster for me.
Give this one a good home. Go to the auction and place your bid!
