These bikes keep popping up here at RSBFS, and for me that’s a good thing. Being a big fan of the older (and newer) GSX-R’s I’m always excited to see original bikes still out there. Back in the day, they were like the current bikes today, very cool and popular and subject to some serious damage and modification. Much like many things that develop a collector’s market later, in the beginning very few saw that market developing and so most bikes were seen as expendable. Of course, without that, there would be no rarity. Oh well, I digress.
Back to the bike. The seller doesn’t list a lot of information, but here it is-
Here it is!!
The Mother of all Super bikes!!
The One that started it all!!
A prime example of a Excellent condition, Garage kept 1986
Gixxer. Never ridden but started weekly. Not to be dissapointed.
All original fairings, tank and seat. Light scratching and one small fairing crack by left side mirror.
Starts and sounds great, should be serviced before ridding.

And there’s only a few photos-
So clearly there are some modifications, as highlighted by the seller, who also notes that original parts are included. This is good as again these bikes are certainly becoming more and more desirable. This is also the first year of the GSX-R 1100, which always scores a few extra points in my book. The seller does highlight a fairing crack up by the headlights, and that should be taken into consideration. Also, the bike has been started but not ridden, so there may be some maintenance that needs to be done to make it a solid daily rider. If well maintained, mileage shouldn’t be a concern.
So there it is. A clean, first year GSX-R 1100 in white and blue for a reasonable $5k BIN. Tasty.
