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

1988 Yamaha FZR 750 R $3750

Located in Carmel, California is a seemingly very rare and very original Yamaha FZR750R. The seller claims that only 200 were brought into the U.S. from 1987-88 (I believe they were imported until 89, the last year being the OWO1). The bike only has 5,400 original miles; however, it does have race history. Does race history make a difference on a homologation special? For this particular bike, at this price, I would think not.

The FZR-R comes with (Factory?) Yamaha race parts (13,000 rpm black box, crankshaft,springs, fork springs, etc), original plastics, an Airtech set manuals/Microfische, period articles, spare rim, stand and more.

Ask yourself, would you rather have a six year old CBR F4i, or a race-bred homologation special? I know which one I’d have to choose.

Ultra Rare 1986 GSX-R 750 “Limited” Homologation Special For Sale

quote from seller’s listing:

Suzuki took the GSXR750 and added trick bits; the forks were very high tech for their time. They had what was called “Anti-Dive” technology. They were electric activated, telescopic, coil spring, oil damped, spring preload and were four-way adjustable. The rear shock was just as special with a gas charged remote reservoir and was aluminum bodied. Racing tail section that was hand laid fiberglass with a custom solo seat. Custom colored wheels. Racing clutch lever and dry clutch. This made swapping out clutch plates at the track a faster and cleaner job as well as keeping the oil free of clutch plate materials and they run cooler. The clip-ons were wider. Front brakes were upgraded. The engine got a magnesium cylinder head as well as sprocket covers to save weight. The front brakes had speacial-designed hoses. The fairing had additional cooling ducts as well as quick release fasteners. Even the emblem on the side was bike-specific. And finished with a gold plated chain with an all-aluminum chain guard. All this and it weighed in six pounds less than an off the shelf 750.

Don’t you just love homologation specials?! The very best of everything and no expense spared. And when they’re nearly 25 years old and never raced, AND hardly even ridden, they’re truly a rare find. This one is currently at $12k (appears reserve has been met) with about 4 days to go.

And here’s a quick video I found on YouTube of a limited being revved up (not the bike in auction):
