I always keep an eye out for any early GSX-R’s that pop up for sale. There’s been some solid choices out there lately and here we have another one. This bike isn’t dead mint but it is original and in pretty good shape. Finding one of these that hasn’t been heavily modded or just plain dumped is pretty tough. Nobody thought about the future of these bikes when they came out. They just road the hell out of them. Some with more success than others.
Here’s what the seller has to say about this bike-
Here’s a chance that you hardly run across anymore. A completely bone stock, unaltered Suzuki GSX-R 1100. You don’t see these very often and when you do, you better get it before it’s to late. I have a stock 1990 Suzuki GSX-R 1100 that’s black and grey in color. This is a very hard color to find. Much more difficult than the blue and whites that you see. This bike has only 22,540 miles on the clock. The fairings are in amazing condition with no scratches or road rash of any kind. No rust in the gas tank.
Just had a complete service done on the bike which includes… A new maintenance free battery, oil and filter change, new plugs and plug caps, new air filter, changed clutch and brake fluids, carb clean, chain lube and adjustment, new front and rear tires, new stater relay.
The bike runs amazing and shifts just fine with no issues with the transmission or clutch. I have owned several GSX-R’s in the past growing up and this one is just as good as i remember the last 15 i’ve had.
Bike has new original factory grips and throttle tube, new rubber foot pegs, as i tried to retain as much of the factory look as possible.
The only small issues with the bike are… The gas tank has 2 dents on the front right side above the end of the Suzuki sticker and on small dent on the rear of the tank close to the seat. Nothing major and easily can be fixed by a professional. I checked with Suzuki and the stickers can be still be purchased if needed. Also some acid leaked onto the swingarm because as we all know, these older bike had batteries that would over flow acid and leak down the drain tube. Again nothing major and can be refinished and look new again. I have include pictures of the tank and swingarm area.
The only thing the bike will need to be 100% original is the rear fender hunger and factory rear fender and turn signals which i have seen on ebay for around $100.
The bike has had two owners, i purchased the bike back in 2000 and it had approx 16k miles on it. I have several bikes and always wanted another GSX-R 1100, so it wasn’t used much. I hope i haven’t forgot anything.
AGAIN, DON’T LET THIS ONE GET AWAY! YOU WILL BE SORRY THAT YOU DID!

And pics for you-
As I mentioned above, this bike isn’t a mint example. But it is a mostly original bike and it looks to be fairly clean. The most significant concerns would be the cosmetic issues, specifically the dents and creases in the tank. The seller says this is easily repairable, and that may be true, but it will mean more work on the bike. The seller also mentions some acid leak on the swingarm and non-original rear turn signals and rear fender. Again, these would be a concern if you want the bike 100% stock, which frankly, is what I would want. So these are things to consider.
The seller has a reserve and I would expect this bike to go around the $4 mark. They ain’t making any more of these, so if it’s been on your dream list, you’ll have to pull the trigger sometime. If this is your time, go place your bid!
