1988 Suzuki GSXR 750 Slingshot: Beautiful Survivor For Sale with Upgrades

There’s an original GSX-R Slingshot that comes out of hiding in my neighborhood once in a while. Every time I see it I’m impressed with how great this model looks. And it is so rare to see an original looking survivor. Since spotting this bike a few times, I’ve been on the prowl. These are not easy to find on the used market!

But here’s a great looking 1988 Suzuki GSX-R 750 ‘slingshot’ for sale in San Diego on Craigslist:

quote from seller’s Craigslist ad:

This bike is my baby, it is parked in my living room. I love this bike. I broke my back a few years ago on my dirt bike, it still hurts!
So it is time to sell, if you always liked the 88 GSXR, then you want this bike. It has never been downed. I’ve raced it, but never abused it. I have so much money wrapped up in this thing that I will never see, but it is okay because the time spent riding it was AMAZING. OK…Where do I start? Body and paint:PERFECT, no BS Motor out of 1991 GSXR 750. The chassis millage is 26,679 however all bearings are new. The motor & trani have 1,642 miles on them I broke it in at 5500 RPM for 500 miles. Weisco 7R7 Piston Kit. New bearings and gaskets. Pocket port work on head. Stock cams. Transmission: was sent out of state for gears to be under-cut and shimmed by R&D! “you can shift with your pinky toe” Forks off 1992 GSXR 750 “Inverted”. LG Valving Kit. Braided brake lines. Mikuni Flatslide carbs with Stage 3 Jetting just rebuilt 6/6/08. Yoshimura exhaust. OVER $7,000.00 in parts and labor

Any guy who stores the bike he loves in the house is okay by me! He’s asking $5k which demonstrates just how rare a clean example has become.

1996 Aprilia RS250 For Sale

I am a total sucker for Aprilia RS250, especially when they’re titled and for sale! Here’s a beautiful silver 1996 Aprilia RS250 that was on eBay in Florida:

quote from seller’s eBay listing:

1996 Aprilia RS-250. These bikes are VERY rare and VERY hard to find. This one is an even more rare find in that it is in EXCELLENT shape. Starts on first kick just about every time and is very fast! This one is a 2-stroke 250cc bike, it does not have electric start on it (to shed the weight of a generator, battery, and starting system), it is kick start only. This one is completely street legal with headlights, tail lights, and turn signals.

And here’s a video of the bike and exhaust note:

The description details the condition of the paint and some scuffs, but really the bike looks great in the pictures. The auction ended without meeting reserve at $6900, but the buy-it-now shows $8k. I’ve seen them over $10k and with only 7600 miles, it might be worth contacting the dealer to see if it’s still available.

2000 Ducati 748R For Sale: Hello Hotness!

As I’ve stated many times before: San Francisco Craigslist is THE place to spot the coolest sportbikes for sale. Here’s a beaut of a 748R for sale:

quote from seller’s CraigsList ad:

2000 Ducati 748R
6,500 miles
lots of extras
6000 mile service done at Nichols
Clean title
Asking $8200 obo

And if you’re not familiar with what makes the R worth so much more than the regular model, here is an excerpt from the Wikipedia entry for the Ducati 748:

The top of the range model was now the 748R, Ducati’s racing homogolation model produced only in very limited numbers. This engine was again a derivitve of the SPS model but with more tuning. The main difference is that the R model has an overhead shower-injector arrangement compared to the 748E and S model’s traditional throttle bodies, titanium conrods, titanium valves and more extreme valve timing. As such, the 748R has a larger, two-part airbox and thus the frame was also different to accommodate this. The suspension choice was Ohlins for both the rear shock and front forks, although the very first models in 2000 used Showa TiN front forks and a Showa shock absorber. The engine included a very basic slipper clutch to ensure that this would then be homogolated for use in racing and also an oil cooler.

With specs like that, $8200 sounds like a bargain!
