The term “Rare” in regards to sport bikes can signify low-production and finely crafted bikes that were originally sold for a higher price than the norm. Or it can mean classic and collectible bikes that are decades old. All of which are completely reasonable. A mass produced bike with no special upgrades shouldn’t sound rare. The GSX-R series is a mass produced working-man’s sport bike which could be ridden and enjoyed. Add 20 years to a bike bought in the early 90’s with an attainable price tag, throw in a lot of fairing that can see tons of wear and damage, subtract any sense of ‘collectability’ when originally purchased, and consider the fact that people who owned/desired these back in the day now have some disposable income, and you have the recipe for a “rare” and collectible bike.
The GSX-R750 was redesigned for 1993 and fit nicely between the newly introduced 600 and 1100 models of its time. The bike up for grabs here is up for sale by its original owner and has fewer than 10k miles on the odometer. It appears to be in stock condition physically, sporting a stock exhaust, wind screen, and even comes with an era-correct matching helmet. Though, I would recommend keeping the lid a display piece and not using it.

If you have been looking for an early 90’s GSXR750 with awesomely 90’s graphics, then look no further. This bike looks like it has been maintained well and kept in good condition. You also get the peace of mind of knowing its entire history via the 1-owner status. The price seems very reasonable as well, and with no reserve on the auction, this one will sell.
