So if you spend a lot of time on RSBFS, as I like to do, then you start to get a sense of the history of the sportbike. If you do, then you also know the importance of Suzuki’s GSX-R line. The GSX-R 750 single handedly brought the race bike to the street and changed the game. The GSX-R 1100 seen here defined over-the-top power for the liter bike. Boasting an air and oil cooled motor that pushed the chassis to its limit, the GSX-R 1100 is a true sportbike classic.
Here’s the brief description from the seller-
1987 Suzuki GSX-R 1100 in museum condition. This bike was part of a collector’s collection. I purchased this bike several years ago. I believe I am only the second owner. This bike has never been disassembled or modified except for the Vance & Hines exhaust pipe and jet kit. Bike runs flawlessly. The only imperfection on bike is a slight crease in the fuel tank where someone pushed in with the palm of their hand. If you would like more information please call me.
And some more pics-
This bike looks to very clean and well taken care of for the mileage. The pipe has been swapped and the seller describes a crease in the tank. You may want of close up photo of the tank just to see how bad the crease may be. Otherwise the photos seem to show a clean and original bike.
The seller is starting the auction at $4,500 which is right in there for a bike like this. Don’t know where the reserve is, but if it is somewhere within a grand beyond the starting bid, then you should be getting a solid deal.
If you bleed all things Suzuki then I suggest you make the jump!
