There is something about the late 80’s GSX-R’s that is inherently cool to me. And this one is a prime example of that. I was able to swipe this bike off of Rem’s desk while he had run out to check an RC30 parked outside the RSBFS Corporate offices. Sorry buddy.
Before the flamethrowers come out, let me say that this is not an “original” bike in the traditional sense. It’s got an LE tail section and solo-seat, ’85 tank and fairings, as well as a fresh paint job. Because of this, I wouldn’t classify it as a museum piece. However, I would say that it has been very well put together and definitely looks the part.

I think the beauty of this bike comes from the fact that it can be ridden with out fear of racking up miles on an original survivor or if you love the looks of a Limited Edition GSX-R but can’t afford one. Its non-originality doesn’t bother me in the slightest and I would be happy to own such a good looking bike. If you agree, then check out the auction here and place your bid!
