The GSX-R 1100 in almost any iteration will find its way on to RSBFS. Many have varying opinions about which generation is best and certainly some paint schemes worked better than others. I personally like them all. But I also like all things GSX-R. Regardless, the 1100, especially a slabby like this one, is undeniably rare and an important bike in the history of sportbikes.

Early GSX-R 1100’s like this one had a giant 1100 cc air an oil cooled motor stuffed into a frame developed for its 750 cc little brother. That’s a lot of motor for this particular chassis and could make life interesting for the rider. The engines are considered bullet-proof and have been found to survive in some form or another for many, many years.

This bike looks stock from the limited photos. It would be nice to get some more close-up shots to get an idea of the condition. It would also be nice to be able to see under the tank protector to get a sense of what the paint is like there.

Here’s the owner’s description-

This 1987 GSXR 1100 is an 8 out of 10 with 15,484 well maintained miles and is rare in Red and Black color.  Most 1987 GSXRs were sold in the White and Blue racing color combination.

It is completely stock to include exhaust and rare plastic air intakes.  I searched for years to find this bike after owning the same model from 1987-1990.   I bought it about 4 years ago with 13k on the clock and rode it 1000 miles home.  It is extremely reliable and you can ride it anywhere.  I care about quality maintenance, and at 15k miles I had the bike completely serviced at a Suzuki dealership.  The service guys were amazed at how clean and stock this bike is!  Service included: new chain, new spark plugs, new air filters, flushing of front & rear brake systems, flushing of clutch system, transmission, fresh engine oil & oil filter.  I also had the dealer do a complete rebuild of the front forks (fluid/seals) and they operate as new for both compression dampening and rebound.  Every switch and light works to include turn signals.  There are a few minor dings that have touch-up paint.  I’m selling as is, but you will not be disappointed.  If you are a disciminating buyer, you’ll love this bike cosmetically and mechanically.  I’m only selling to raise more cash for property down payment. 

If you choose “Buy it Now” I will deliver your Gixxer for free within 100 miles of Hudson, WI (54016).  Delivering further distances is negotiable after sale.  I will also store it until Spring for free if you want to fly in and ride it home.  Although the tires have low mileage, they are 4 years old.  I will replace them with new tires at the “Buy it Now” price and include a pitbull swingarm stand.

Shipping is the responsibility of the buyer. 

Again, the photos are limited but the seller describes the bike as well maintained and completely stock. That is a rare find indeed for this bike. And for all the collector’s out there, a bone stock early 1100 would be a prize.

So if you are looking, this may be your ticket. Want to make a play? Go place your bid!

  • The pictures in this seller’s listing are so poor that it’s impossible to really tell what the actual condition the bike is in. Why go to the time and expense of an eBay auction if you make buyers guess or beg for better pictures?
