Sport Bikes For Sale April 14, 2010 posted by


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?

Clean 1986 GSXR750 W/6600 Miles in CO on Ebay and CL

Clean 1986 GSXR750 W/6600 Miles in Colorado on Craigslist and Ebay

Here is a nice flashback to the eighties.  Someone bestowed alot of love on this 86 GSXR to keep it in this shape.  It is a rare find to come across a 24 year old bike with low miles but maybe even better though, is the owner has kept the bike in stock condition.  Usually someone installs a different pipe or windscreen but this one looks like it is almost bone stock.  The color matching solo cowl is a nice find as well.

A little from the seller:

Absolutely beautiful, clean, original 1986 GSXR 750 California model. With a couple of very tasteful modifications that all came out of the 1986 Suzuki parts bin. This low mileage bike spent 22 years under a sheet in a California basement. It is so amazingly clean and original; it’s truly a museum piece. Notice the coating on the motor, there is no fading and all the little plastic plugs are in all the bolt holes. The only non Suzuki part on this bike is the K&N air filter. It has the original chain and brake pads. One original Suzuki key operates all the locks. Has the original owner title, so you can be the second owner. Title is a clear California title and I will provide any additional paper work your state requires. But do keep in mind; a signed title is like a bearers bond.



At $6500, the seller is definitely asking a premium for the bike.  I have a feeling he knows you don’t see these with low mileage everyday as well.  Is it worth it?  If you’ve been hunting for a low mileage, basically stock 86 GSXR the price may be right. You have the option of checking out the bidding on or his local Colorado Craigslist listing  here.

Graves 1995 175hp GSXR1100 Street Legal

Chuck Graves’ kitted 1995 GSXR1100

I’ll admit right off the top here, I’d love to get my hands on some of the kit bits on this thing.  I’m a sucker for hard to find race parts and it looks like this GSXR has more than a few, and some pricey ones at that.  The  kit aluminum tank, kit transmission and those carbs were all definitely big ticket items back in the day.  Granted these aren’t current race parts but for those of us that still live in the 90’s, like me, this might be a really fun bike to play with.  It might be a nice project to restore it back to its’ original race glory.  I don’t think you’d have to spend any money getting more power out of the engine with it pumping out 175hp either.

The seller states:

WAY TOO MUCH TO LIST1 1995 Suzuki GSXR 1100 Fully Built! 175 HP to the ground!….This was piloted by the great Chuck Graves of Graves Yamaha in 1995. (See the photo..This is the actual bike with Chuck Graves Riding it!) The new owner will get a copy of the magazine with documentation of the bike! The best of everything is on this bike and yes it is STUPID FAST (175hp at the rear wheel!!!). Kit aluminum gas tank , Kit 6sp transmission , Kit sub frame , PM Chicane wheels and more. The carburetors on this bike were imported by Team Yoshimura Suzuki for 6mo and had a price tag of $6000 for the rack and that is just 1 item on a bike that is FULL of trick kit parts!

They are asking $8500 for the bike and it has been listed on Craigslist in Atlanta for some time.  I’ve seen this before where an older bike is loaded with quality parts and the seller wants to get the money out of those parts but the average guy is not willing to pay, say $8500 for a 1995 GSXR.  Maybe it’s worth a call to the right buyer to see what you could negotiate.  It isn’t everyday you find a bike loaded with genuine kit parts and more than enough horsepower to get you into serious trouble.

1992 Suzuki GSX-R400R

Located in Jacsonville, North Carolina is a 1992 Suzuki GSX-R400R.  This bike doesn’t have a title, it needs the carbs cleaned, and needs the tail plastic.  However, it has some good features:  Only 8k miles, Yoshimura exhaust, and the asking price is only $1,800.  This could be a very good bike for the right buyer.  See the Craigslist ad here.

1986 Suzuki GSX-R750R

Located in Flagler, Florida is a 1986 Suzuki GSX-R750R Homologation Special.  This is one of the limited edition bikes released to Homologate Suzuki’s race bikes.  The differences from standard 750s are, dry clutch, solo seat body work, graphics–and possibly–Yoshimura frame, RGB500 front forks, polished head, larger intake valves, full titanium exhaust, 34mm carbs, Campagnola magnesium wheels and handmade aluminum fuel tank.  If you know the exact specification for U.S. model GSX-RRs, please, let us know.  This example only shows 8,407 miles, with the only defect being a small crack to the lower portion of the main fairing.  This bike has been sitting so it will probably also need to be gone through before using.  A thank you goes out to Rob for forwarding this to us.  See this very clean example of a GSX-R750R

1991 GSXR400 GK76A $4000 (SOLD)

Another find from a reader request is this possibly still for sale Suzuki GSXR400.  Here is the posting from the forum:

Sadly I am buying a new house and need some cash to cover closing cost. I thought I’d give the people on the forum a chance to buy the bike before it goes on e-bay.
It is a 1991 GSXR 400 GK76A with a complete front end off of a 2004 Kawi 636. It has a new front tire, new computer, and a rebuilt starter. The motor was rebuilt not too long ago (and I have receipts to show). Red paint in great condition. The only draw backs are a bent shifter, which still works great, from a driveway drop after letting my cousin borrow it. Also the neutral switch likely needs to be replaced or bypassed…it used to start up intermittantly (hence all the new electrical) and I tracked it down to the neutral switch (by process of elimination). After a while I discovered when it would’nt start I would just wiggle the shifter and it’d start right up. Since the front end swap my mechanic rerouted the clutch cable and it now hasn’t given me any issue, but I’ve only taken it out a handful of times since then so wanted to mention it. Anyways it is a great bike, very solid, and it comes with tons of spares and the entire original front end. Let me know if you are interested and I’ll send you pix via email. I can be reached at (email removed). I have over $6,000 U.S. into this bike and I’m asking $4,000.

If you are interested, shoot Andrew an email as the ad was only posted on 2/3/2009.  See the thread in it’s entirety here.
