1991 Suzuki GSX-R 1100 For Sale in Beautiful and Original Condition!

I just got an email from Jay W., the seller of this fine machine, about 15 minutes ago and I immediately wanted to post this one up myself. I’ve had an itch for a modern-classic sportbike and have been watching bikes of this vintage recently. Needless to say, not many come up in this kind of condition! Check out the pictures below, or :

quote from seller’s listing:

This is a MINT CONDITION low mile STOCK oil-cooled 1991 GSXR 1100. You’ll be hard pressed to find another in such excellent stock condition inside and out, this is a true classic and the last generation of the oil cooled Gixxers.

– Very Low 12,537 original miles.
– Service records dating back to 1991.
– Never been down at all, not even a tip over.
– Has very rare “period correct” dual Yoshimura slip-on pipes, they use the stock OEM header and stock jetting. The sound these pipes put out is absolutely phenomenal.
– The stock Suzuki OEM exhaust pipes are in mint condition and included in the sale.
– Rear single seat cowl with bump pad, passenger seat also included in the sale.
– There is one very small crack about 1″ long on the left rear corner of the tail, it has been repaired and reinforced from the inside, see picture included. That is the ONLY flawed area on this entire bike.

I just had the bike completely freshened up this past spring, the list below was all done 6 months (500 miles) ago. I have receipts for everything, parts and labor.

– Wheels powder coated, new bearings, cush drive, spacers, bolts, etc.
– New Michelin 2CT tires.
– New chain and sprockets.
– New brake pads front and rear.
– New brake lines front and rear and clutch line, all are braided lines from “Spiegler”, done in a color similar to the stock rubber lines.
– Stock OEM rear shock professionally rebuilt at “Race Tech” in California.
– New front fork seals.
– New battery.
– Full service, carb clean, and valve adjustment. All fluids changed, new plugs, filters, etc.
– New all 4 OEM stock blinkers and New OEM stock mirrors. Nothing was functionally wrong with the ones I replaced, the plastic was just showing age after 20 years, that shows you just how picky I got with this bike…

This bike needs absolutely nothing, excellent condition inside and out.

I needed to brush up on my Gixxer knowledge myself to learn that this bike sports a healthy 145hp at just under 500lbs, and represents the next to last year for the oil-cooled engined bikes. A recent April article over at Visor Down also does a classic review feature versus the FZR1000 that I found helpful.

Good luck to the seller and good luck to any potential bidders; I may have to throw in a bid or two myself!

Mint (really mint)- 1994 GSX-R 750 On Ebay

Mint (really mint)- 1994 GSX-R 750 On Ebay

Obviously a GSXR750 is not a rare model but a 1994 model in this condition is quite rare.  I would make the argument that finding a GSXR of this age, in this condition is more rare than  75% of the bikes we post on here.  GSXR’s live a much harder life than any Bimota, Ducati limited edition or lusted after grey market two stroke.  This bike might even be a bit more rare because it wasn’t a particularly popular model year.  The old cradle frame had reached the end of it’s lifespan and engine technology was marching on.  Over the years the 750 had gained a lot of weight and lost touch with it’s roots of light weight minimalism.  To top everything off Suzuki must have fired their better designers and the old GSXR got a pretty unattractive paint scheme.   It wasn’t any better at the  track.  These were pre-Mladin days here in the US and Suzuki was barely involved in WSB. 

Here is some info from the auctin:

You have an opportunity to own and ride a virtually brand new, legendary 1994 GSX-R 750 that has been in a private collection since new. This awesome classic Suzuki has never been abused in any way; just lovingly stored and maintained. The motorcycle runs, looks and rides like it did the day it was brought home from the dealership. The condition is nothing short of spectacular; this is a museum quality time-capsule Gixxer. Get the best of both worlds – the beautiful classic styling of the bike that started it all with 118 lively horsepower, excellent handling, light weight and six-speed transmission (this bike was way ahead of its time), all of which make this bike perform like a modern sportbike at a fraction of the cost!  The reserve is set very low……..bid with confidence and good luck!

It’s a bit cliche but I think you really could  eat off of this one:

Now what is it worth?  Well used but clean examples I’ve seen have been offered from roughly $2,500 to $3,500.  How much should the condition of this bike add to its’ value?  $1500?  $1700?  The reserve for the bike has not been met but a hint can be seen at the bottom of the auction.   They are requiring a $3000 deposit within 48 hours of the auctions close.  Hmmmm, if they want that large of a deposit are they placing something like a $6000 reserve on this thing?  I’m just guessing here on the reserve of course but that bike might sit for a bit if that is the case.  You can  on one of the cleanest GSXR’s you will ever see.

One interesting fact about the bike is that it spawned possibly the rarest of all GSXR’s:  the GSXR740W SP.  I don’t believe any came to the US officially and I think they only produced around 150 of them.  I’ve never seen one for sale anywhere.  It was an homogation special all the way.

1986 Suzuki GSX-R750 Original Owner!

1986 Suzuki GSX-R 750 for sale by the original owner-BAM!

Make: Suzuki GSX-R 750
Mileage: 12,309 Miles
Price: $1,725 current auction price
Location: Palo Alto, CA

Rare Sport Bike For Sale by the original owner and it only has 12,309 miles. Although not in it’s original trim the owner states that he does have all of the original parts. This one looks to be in amazing condition.

Suzuki 1986 GSX-R 750 for sale

As you can see by the picture it has been well cared for and has only averaged about 500 miles per year. Like today’s sport bikes these early Gixxers weren’t only used on the track. No, they also served as sport tourers as proven in this next photo.

Pretty spiffy huh? Ah yes, there is no quicker way to remove a “Manly Mans” machoness other than to put saddle bags on his beloved sport bike. As with most luggage it is made “quick release” for ease of removal. Seeing this bike does take me back to days gone by; as I’m sure it will with the person who buys it. I do have one question: Is it just me or are those bags look as if they’re on backwards?

For sale is my personal 1986 Suzuki GSX-R750, an unusual survivor and the lightest Gixxer 750 ever made (388 pounds dry). This bike has only 12,309 miles or 500 miles a year! Why buy one of these that a kid has beat? Instead, buy one that is already almost in showroom condition. These bikes were literally race bikes with lighting kits tacked on. This bike needs nothing as I would not hesitate to drive it across country right now. I am the original owner as I bought brand new off of Grand Prix Suzuki’s showroom in Santa Clara back in 1986.

The seller has a lot more to say over at the auction and has posted several very nice pictures for your review. He also included a great video that is sure to please any interested buyers.

Cheers!

Step Right Up Folks, 1986 Suzuki GSXR 750 Limited, 99.9% Stock

Well, we’ve seen a few of these floating around recenty so at least we have some data on prices vs conditions, just search “1986 Suzuki GSXR 750 Limited” on our site and see.  I just love these bikes because back in 1986 I almost bought one but opt’d for the GSXR 1100 instead (stupid me). A plus for anyone’s cool collection these babies are indeed RARE . This one looks like a fairly tidy example and it’s pretty much all stock except the windscreen which is the way you want them. Located in BC Canada and is on Ebay now so jump on over to join the bidding.

The ad (which gave me a head ache) reads…..

Seller assumes all responsibility for this listing.

After many years of owning this rare and exotic bike , I am willing to let it go for the right price. After getting a letter from Suzuki USA stating the rarity of a bone stock  LTD gsx-r 750 , this is what they said. Suzuki produced 5,000 of these bikes in 1986, aprox 4,000 were used for track purpose and were never returned to the street, leaving aprox 1000 of them in street form, of that 1000 ,aprox 500 of them were destroyed in crashes, leaving 500 of them in street form. Of that 500, their guess is that at least 400 of those 500 were modified and never returned to STOCK , leaving aprox 100 of these rare and beautiful unique bikes in street form. Of that 100, aprox 50 of these bikes were up dated and modified with up to date parts (forks,wheels,pipes,ect,ect) leaving aprox only about 50 in the world in BONE  STOCK trim, meaning , all the stock warning labels are still in place, stock mirrors are still on the bike, signals have not been altered, mud guard’s are still intact and not chopped.

Now we come to my bike, a Bone Stock 1986 GSX-R LTD Eddition with dry clutch and flat slide carbs from the factory,nothing altered except for the aftermarket windshield. This bike was also offered with a rare (because of the $300 price tag) FACTORY pit/race stand (seen in pictures) Seem’s not to many people wanted to drop the extra $300 after spending the $8500 back in 1986 for a mere stand with a badge on the side of it saying GSX-R but that makes it just that much rarer. This bike was professionally stored back in 2000 with the gas drained from the tank and carbs the inside sprayed with an oil like fluid to prevent rust( and it worked flawlessly) the bike has been in my heated house for 8 years and at the local Suzuki dealer for the last 2 years hanging from the roof on a secured platform. With only 22,000 kms (aprox 12,000 mi) this is going to be one of the lowest mile GSX-R LTD ED you will find ! The 2 things that are not perfect on this bike are a small dent the size of a pencil eracer on the tank (sorry I don’t have a pic of it, but I will send a pic to the interested buyer if needed) and some light scratches on the lower body pannel from falling half way over against some plywood in my garage(never did hit the ground) This bike has been carefully ridden and maintained since new and is a verry rare find. I will crate it in one of my spare Ducati crates and help with shipping arrangements.  reserve is set a 1986 showroom price.     

 

So, what’s really cool is that I’ve never even seen the rear track stand, I’m impressed! I think the price at $8500 was in Canadian dollars back then because I do remember these bikes being $6500 US, I may be wrong but that’s what I remember because I thought “why would I want a $6500 750 solo seater?” at that time. Anyway the bike looks nice but not prestine and the miles are okay, so I think (and I repeat) “I think”, the bike should be somewhere about the $7000 US mark. So chime in and tell me I’m wrong, right or waaaay off 🙂

Ciao for now….Jay

1990 Suzuki GSX-R 750 -survivor-

1990 Suzuki GSX-R 750 ‘Slingshot’ in Red, White and Black with only 6,330 miles.

Located in Marion, IA is this clean, low mileage Gixxer 750 and it looks to be the real deal Holyfield. It appears to be all stock except for the Yoshi, an aftermarket tinted windscreen and the ever present shorty and flush turn signals. These early oil-cooled Suzukis had an intimidating look and stance about them and I always like them. I remember thinking how fat the rear tire was back in the day and wishing that my 88 Ninja had one to match it.

Even though these beast weighed in at 515#’s they had good balance and a proven oil-cooled engine that offered up 112hp at 11,500 RPM’s. The owner states that he’s never pulled a wheelie, but that’s almost hard to believe because I remember these things being like a pogo stick with the front wheel always bouncing off the pavement. This one is listed on ebay with a current bid of .01. That’s right 1 penny is the current bid, but the reserves is obviously still on.

Take a look at this time capsule:

Quotes from the seller:

Bike is in very good shape with only 6,330 miles. I have never had this bike at full throttle, I have never pulled a wheelie or anything like that as it is very powerful. It has 50 Miles ON REAR TIRE, 50 Miles ON ALL NEW BRAKES, 50 MILES ON SYNTHETIC OIL CHANGE, front tire is good, no leaks, starts perfect and runs great. I cover the bike indoors when storing it winters and always keep it indoors when I’m not riding it. I really only ride it to work and back during summers sometimes about 5 miles each way. Original owners manual included.

New tires, fresh oil change and it runs great! What are you waiting for??? and check it out..

Cheers!
