Jeff contacted us about listing his bikes for sale on our site and asked if they were suitable for our audience. A very low mile R1 and a zero mile GSX-R 750. Why yes, yes these will do nicely on our site! Check out our latest Feature Listing with the details on both bikes below.
1999 Yamaha R1 with 1717 Original Miles, $6000
From the seller:
I’m the original owner of this bike, having purchased it from an old friend who happens to be a Yamaha dealer in my area. The break-in mileage was completed by the book and it has been ridden occasionally since then. To date, it has covered only 1,717 miles. When not being used, the bike has been kept in a climate controlled garage, as part of a private collection of sport and race bikes.
In spite of the low mileage, the bike has received yearly oil changes, along with brake fluid and coolant changes every three years. The battery has been replaced once. When the bike has been stored, the fuel has been drained from the tank and carburetors and the battery has been kept fully charged by a battery tender. Apart from the battery, everything else on the bike is as-delivered, including the tires. It has been well preserved and ridden with respect. It has not seen any track use, nor any inclement weather. It will be sold with a fresh service and the original keys, books and a factory service manual.
2005 Suzuki GSX-R750 20th Anniversary Edition # 4051 with 0 Miles, $8000
From the seller:
I made an arrangement to purchase this bike in 2004, from the local Suzuki dealer, when Suzuki announced they were going to offer it for sale in the 2005 model year. When the bike was received by the dealer, I had them complete the pre-delivery inspection, apart from filling the battery with acid, filling the bike with fuel and starting the bike. It was then delivered in an enclosed trailer to my house and placed into my collection. To date, it has not been ridden or started and is has been displayed inside my house. It is in showroom new condition.
Included in the sale will be all of the original materials (keys, books, battery, sealed acid pack, rear seat cowl) and a Suzuki dealer poster commemorating the 20th anniversary of the GSX-R series.
Jeff also wanted to note, “I may consider delivering the bikes in an enclosed trailer that I have, if the buyer(s) will pay my expenses. If not, I’d be happy to coordinate with any shipper they may choose. The bikes are located in Tulsa, Oklahoma. “
I know that when I see the latest Japanese offerings I wish there were more well preserved examples like these available, and I’m sure many of you feel the same way. These are both really sharp to my eye and I know I’d consider them in heartbeat over a new model if I was shopping.

Good luck with the sale Jeff!
