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

1986 SUZUKI GSXR 750 LIMITED EDITION On Ebay

Well we all know what this is don’t we!  Other than a RG500 is there a more desirable Suzuki?  This example has just under 4000 miles on it and looks very well taken care of.  It appears previous owners have left the bike mostly stock.  It does appear though the bike is running without the air box and I think that is an aftermarket pipe.  The dealership listing the bike didn’t give any history on the bike but is quite specific on all the associated fees and ways to pay.  I guess they know this isn’t a normal GSXR750.

In an earlier post I mentioned how you can’t trust book values on rare bikes.  Guess what the book value is on this bike?  How about $2940!!!!  I’ll take three please at that price.  The bike is listed on Ebay with a “Buy It Now” price of $10,000.  Since these things don’t pop up that often and this one has relatively low miles I’d consider that in the ballpark.  It will always be a bit more being at a dealership.  

How cool does that dry clutch rattle sound?

Pair of Suzuki GSX-R750 Limiteds for sale!

1986 Suzuki GSX-R750 and 2005 Suzuki GSX-R750 limited editions for sale in Canada.

While I’m the resident Bimota freak at RSBFS, I do have a soft spot for limited editions and homologation specials such as the Yamaha OW02 YZF-R7, the Honda RC30, and the Suzuki GSX-R750 Ltd and GSX-R750RKs.  So when I came across this pair of GSX-R750 Ltds, I just had to post it immediately for our readers:

I’m thinking of selling my LTD 750 since I don’t ride it and don’t have time for it ? 22,000 kms aprox 12K miles great shape, BONE STOCK !(except for windshield) every safety decal is still on there and reflectors as well.Asking price is $10,000.00 CDN

Just picked up a 2005 GSX-R LTD 750 , will sell it along side with the 86 for an extra 4K

Wow – $14,000 CDN for A PAIR of GSX-R750 Ltds?!  That’s got to be one of the best bargain that I have seen in a while! Note to self: have to play more lotto numbers!!

Oh, click here to see on the ad on Ducati.ms (yes, Suzuki’s for sale on a Ducati forum!)

Lucky Strike Replica: 1996 Suzuki RGV250 VJ23A for Sale

The 1996 Suzuki RGV250 VJ23 was basically the last gasp for road-legal two-stroke sport bikes, and one of the most technologically advanced. Sure, Aprilia made the RS250 for a few years beyond that, but it was actually powered by the previous generation of Suzuki’s RGV250 engine, and the final examples weren’t even road legal in many markets. Earlier versions of the RGV250 were powered by the expected 90° v-twin, but the VJ23 was pretty much new from the ground-up, and was powered by a more compact 70° unit with slightly undersquare internal dimensions and a dry clutch for the six-speed transmission. Interestingly the new engine’s bore and stroke of 54 x 54.5mm match the Honda NSR250R’s specs exactly, and I’m assuming the increased torque contributed to the new RGV’s improved rideability.

Bodywork was completely new for the bike as well, and resembles the SRAD GSX-R of the period, all curves and bulges, with a functional ram-air duct in the fairing. The new VJ23 also featured an electric starter, a very unusual feature for a flyweight two-stroke, but very civilized and refined. Other revisions meant weight stayed basically the same as the outgoing VJ22, in spite of the starter. Frame was the expected twin-spar aluminum unit, along with the usual asymmetrical banana swingarm.

The biggest concern buying one of these desirable Lucky Strike race-replicas is… whether or not it’s a replica replica. It’s obviously pretty easy to buy new, pre-painted bodywork of varying degrees of quality from overseas, or even have a good-quality paint-job applied to standard bodywork yourself. How can you tell if it’s the real thing? As always, caveat emptor. Consult with an expert before parting with your money to avoid disappointments, especially at the $14,500 asking price.

From the original eBay listing: 1996 Suzuki RGV250 VJ23A Lucky Strike Replica for Sale

Up for sale is a genuine 1996 Suzuki RGV250SP VJ23A Lucky Strike with only 1,444 kilometers (897 miles). Just imported from Japan. Bike is in mint condition showing very little patina. Tank is perfect, upper and lowers are mint no scratches, no dings, no dents, no handling marks. Rear fairing has a few very light surface scratches or boot marks that don’t show up in pictures. All fairings are 100% genuine OEM Suzuki factory. Frame number confirms genuine factory Lucky Strike model. (Number 133 of 200 manufactured) Bike is completely stock. It’s in gorgeous collector quality condition. Runs like new. Comes with new fluids, carb cleaning and new Dunlop Sportmax tires. Comes with two keys and Utah state title. It is titled as a street bike for road use. This Lucky Strike will be the Crown Jewel of any collection! Please text 801-358-6537 for questions and pictures.

Keep in mind also that, if you plan to keep your collectible GP-replica bone stock, that these were intended for the Japanese home market and limited to just 40hp from the factory. This example was imported directly from Japan, according to to the seller, so I’d assume it is the limited power version of the bike. A few “export models” were made, just 360 or so of the 2218 VJ23s that were built. Either way, this was one of the most highly-developed two-stroke sportbikes ever made for use on public roads, and represents the very end of development for the breed.

Going the Distance: 1986 Suzuki GSX-R750 Race Replica for Sale

Well this is obviously not some perfectly-preserved replica, so if that’s a problem, just move along. Me, I’m always glad pristine originals exist in museums, so we can tell what those original, factory-supplied decals on the tank looked like before years of spilled gasoline caused them to flake and peel. But I don’t really want to own those bikes. Original carbon canisters that clutter up a Ducati’s clean lines? Massive exhaust cans that make a superbike sound like a sewing machine? Ugly plastic fenders and bulky signals and all that are optional, in my book. A bike is a blank slate. Sure, you can go too far and create something tacky and ill-advised. But this particular Suzuki GSX-R750 walks that line perfectly, with classic, if not original graphics, and great 80s endurance-racer style.

Flat-slide carbs now feed the air and oil-cooled inline four, but it otherwise retains the classic GSX-R oil-boiler powertrain. The inline four had twin cams and four valves per cylinder, but it saved weight by eschewing a radiator and water cooling system. Instead, Suzuki’s first couple generations of Gixxer used the Suzuki Advanced Cooling System or “SACS” that featured a double-chambered oil pump to circulate and cool the bike’s lubricant, along with oil jets that sprayed the undersides of the pistons.

The colors here match the black-and-red Japanese-market Limited Edition version of the bike, decorated with tasteful period sponsor logos. I don’t know if this Yoshimura setup is period-correct, but it looks the part, and makes the bike look more lithe and nimble, more modern. There may be fans of the huge, perforated cylinder that passed for an exhaust can on the original bike, but I’m not one of them. Stainless-steel braided brake lines are obviously a later edition, but look good and should improve feel from the old-school four-piston calipers. The Fox shock out back should get handling closer to modern standards, and I love the single-lamp endurance-style fairing.

Special Suzuki: 1986 Suzuki GSX-R750 LTD for Sale

Suzuki’s original GSX-R is often thought of as being the first modern sportbike. Other bikes had similar specifications and were produced during the same era, but none have quite captured the riding public’s imagination in the same way, combining the ubiquitous Japanese inline four with a monoshock suspension, an endurance-racing full-fairing, and an affordable price point. This first-generation GSX-R750 LTD or Limited Edition incorporated a few extra bells and whistles Suzuki wanted to homologate for production-based racing and is very rare, with just 299 examples imported to the US.

The original GSX-R400 that was introduced a year earlier used a more traditional liquid-cooling system, but the 750 and later 1100 ditched the radiator and additional plumbing to save weight. To keep the big four-valve, twin-cam four cool, Suzuki’s Advanced Cooling System or “SACS” that featured a double-chambered oil pump to circulate and cool the bike’s lubricant, along with oil jets that sprayed the undersides of the pistons. First and second generation GSX-Rs are often referred to as “oil boilers” as a result.

The Limited Edition was distinguished by a vented dry clutch, solo seat, and a longer swingarm, along with Suzuki’s electronic anti-dive forks from the GSX-R1100 and that very distinctive graphics scheme. Cost for the LTD was significantly higher than the standard model, but collectors didn’t care much then or now. Interestingly, the rare and valuable dry clutch made the bike a popular target for thieves when new but, luckily many survived to grace the pages of RSBFS!

1986 GSXR750 LTD
This is a running motorcycle that just had a complete service. Mostly original paint work here, there are a few scratches. (see pictures please). Period correct Yoshimura Duplex pipe in near mint condition, coupled with factory set of 1989 Slingshot carburetors jetted with a Factory pipe products jet kit. Carbs were just Ultrasonic tank cleaned and are ready to be synced. I did not want to add gas after the cleaning so the motorcycle has no fuel in the system whatsoever. Dry clutch works great and OH that sound.

The bike will need tires and a carb sync if you want to ride it. We can preform this service for you at an additional charge.

Also this bike can be delivered to the port of Long Beach for a flat fee of $100.00. Please have a look at the pictures and ask any questions before buying. Motorcycle sold as is.

There are a couple minor blemishes [note the deep scratch on the belly pan in the pic of the headers], but looks very clean and original, apart from the period-correct exhaust and the later-model carburetors. With 12,000 miles on the odometer, it’s pretty clear that “a complete service” at the very least included an extremely thorough cleaning, and this looks like it could be a great opportunity to pick up a sharp-looking homologation special, although the $17,900 asking price is a bit steep.

Featured Listing: 1989 Suzuki RGV250 SP

Here we go. RSBFS comfort food in its finest form and coming from one of our most trusted allies in Moto2 Imports. Like a big bowl of mom’s mac and cheese, there is little that can sate us like a pristine 1989 Suzuki RGV250SP. If you have followed us for any length of time, you know the numbers on these babies chapter and verse, but a good chorus is always worth repeating.

1989 Suzuki RGV250 SP Pepsi For Sale at Moto2 Imports

In ‘89, Suzuki’s two-stroke v-twin GP replica spat out the best part of 60 horsepower from a deliciously peaky powerplant that was endowed with years of GP paddock trickery. The paintwork aped Kevin Schwantz’s RG500 race livery, and outsized brakes and USD forks showed this thing intended no half-assery. It was also a damn sight cheaper than the legions of 1,000cc sportbikes prowling showrooms, and in the right hands could be made to keep up, at least when things got twisty.


Because these things were never sold in the U.S., thanks mostly to the EPA, but in part because we don’t have Europe’s tiered licensing laws, young riders on these shores were left with a bunch of uninspiring sub-500cc machines, or a suite of not beginner-friendly 600s. Wannabe racers in this country never learned the true joy of a featherweight, unforgiving two-stroke ripper.

This 1989 Suzuki RGV250 SP is as nice as they come, and wears nicer suspension front and rear and a close-ratio gearbox to separate itself from the non-SP machines. Everything on the bike is original with the exception of a set of stainless steel front brake lines, and it will be supplied fully serviced. It has a clean US title, so registering it should not pose a problem.

From the seller:

1989 Suzuki RGV250 VJ21 SP in factory Pepsi color scheme. The bike has 5,755 miles (9,265km) and has been prepped by our partner Speedwerks. The fairings and tank are all OEM and in very good (~9/10) condition. Chassis is similarly nice. The SP model features close-ratio gearbox and upgraded front/rear suspension, however contrary to popular opinion, the VJ21 SP did not come with a dry-clutch. Bike is all original, minus braided front brake lines. Tank interior is clean. The bike has been serviced and is in excellent running condition. Bike will come with a US title. Price is $9,999 or best offer and buyers can contact us at info@moto2imports.com or (844) 44-MOTO2

Even today, there isn’t much that weighs as little as this bike and packs a similar wallop, especially if you want blinkers and a license plate. If you really want to separate yourself from the ranks of FZ07s and Gixxers at your local cruise, look no further.
