1986 Suzuki RG500 with Lance Gamma Upgrades

The Suzuki RG500 needs no introduction on this website, especially when Lance Gamma has been involved in the updates. Rick Lance was the Jedi Knight of RG500 tuning and upgrades. A master of his craft.

This auction listing is currently bid to $16,100 and has a buy-it-now of $42,995. Somewhere in-between a buyer is going to score a straight up legend.

1986 Suzuki RG500 for sale

from the seller:

If you are looking for a completely stock Suzuki RG500, look elsewhere! If you are looking for an RG that was built to be all that an RG can be, read on! I found this 1986 RG500 over a decade ago through Rick Lance of Lance Gamma fame. While Rick is no longer with us, he was the “GO TO GAMMA GUY” until his passing a few years ago. He had worked with the previous owner of this bike to help him build a bike with all the best parts and technology available for an RG at the time. The project started with an original stock Canadian import bike (Km speedometer) in good condition with approximately 11,000 miles on it. The bike was disassembled as required and all aspects of it built to the highest specifications for a super fun street racer.

The engine was gone through, cranks rebuilt and new stock bore pistons and rings installed. A new Dyson NOVA close ratio transmission along with their Nova straight cut primary gear set installed to address the well-known weaknesses of the stock RG transmission. In addition, a Lance Gamma clutch kit was installed to alleviate any clutch related issues. A shifter support was added as well to alleviate another well-known RG weakness. Carbs were rebuilt with a set of Lance Gamma float valves and Tripod air filters added to maximize fuel and air flow. Last, a set of TC expansion chambers added to handle exhaust duties.

To accommodate the TC chambers, a modified Lance Gamma battery/oil tank relocation kit was added along with a super lightweight Shorai lithium battery. And to make sure there were no overheating problems, an oversize aluminum radiator was added as well.

Handling was addressed next. Per Rick’s recommendation, stock wheels were exchanged for a set of freshly powder coated 17” GSX wheels front and rear with custom machined spacers. These wheels are wider than stock, convert the stock 16” front rim to 17” and allow a much larger selection of high performance tires to be used. Front brakes were upgraded with the addition of GSXR calipers, EBC discs, and Galfer steel braided brake lines. A new aluminum front fork brace was added as well. At the rear, an Ohlins shock with adjustable ride height adjuster was added along with another Galfer steel braided line.

Last, to deal with the cosmetic cracking issues that the stock plastic fairing, belly pan and seat cowl had, an Air Tech fairing and rear cowl was painted to match the paint scheme of the original paint tank. There are a few very minor touch ups on the right side of the front fairing nose where another bike from my collection fell into it, but they are minor at best (see pics). There are also a few very small stress cracks in the white paint on the rear cowl that even Air Tech wasn’t able to avoid with expansion chambers in such close proximity (again, see pics).

Mod Summary:

· Dyson Nova Close Ratio Transmission
· Dyson Nova Straight Cut Primary Gears
· Lance Gamma Clutch Kit
· Lance Gamma Float Valves
· Lance Gamma TriPod Air Filters
· TC Expansion Chambers
· Oversize Aluminum Radiator
· Lance Gamma Oil Tank/Battery Relocation Kit (modified)
· GSX 17” Powder Coated Wheels
· EBC Front Brake Discs
· GSXR Front Calipers
· Galfer Steel Braided Brake lines (F & R)
· Fork Brace
· Ohlins Adjustable Rear Shock
· Ride Height Adjuster
· Air Tech Fairing Painted in Original Paint Scheme w/Sticker Kit
· Zero Gravity Windscreen

The previous owner enjoyed the bike for a 1000 or so miles after it was built and then passed it on to me. I GREATLY enjoyed it for a several hundred more miles and promptly ruptured two discs in my lower back and haven’t ridden it in anger since! I finally “pickled” the bike about eight years ago, and it has been sitting in my indoor collection since. I have finally come to the realization that my age and health will prevent me from enjoying it as intended again so it is time to pass it on to the next caretaker. It is the third RG500 I have owned and by far the best and most fun one of the three!

I have just changed the transmission oil, refreshed the brake fluid in both front and rear brake systems and put in new coolant. I’ve included some pics of the bike with the body work off so you can see just how clean this bike is. I also included a pic of the plugs as they came out of the bike from the last time it was run and put into storage (1-2-3-4 R to L, jetting is spot on!).

I’ve since started and run the bike using a 30:1 premix to be sure all is well (I have not fully checked the automatic oiling system but it appeared to working correctly after start). Started on the fifth kick after eight years! Everything works as best I can tell, but I would suggest a thorough recommissioning to be sure all is in order. Oh, and new tires if you intend to ride it in anger as it is intended. The Metzler ME3’s that are on it are over a decade old now! The bike also comes with two original Suzuki keys, the original owner’s manual, an original Suzuki shop manual, a variety of mods information and documentation, and both an original parts micro-fiche and a hard copy print out of it. Last, I DO NOT have any of the original stock parts. What you see in the pics is what you get.

As an ex-AMA Pro Roadracer, this bike is as close as you are likely to get to the riding experience of the TZ250 and TZ700 I raced back in the day. It is a VERY NICE survivor and one which I’m sure I will regret selling, but age and medical issues say it’s got to go.

This is a very nice example, but it is a USED motorcycle that is almost 40 years old and it is NOT perfect. It is sold as is where is with NO warranty, NO guaranty or any other kind of ”–ty”. The motorcycle has a clear Arizona title in my name with no liens so no issues there. I am happy to arrange a pre-sale inspection if you care to see it before you bid.

Portuguese Perfection: 1985 Suzuki RG500 Gamma

I’m not sure exactly what is going on in the sun-drenched land of fine port wines, but some amazing motorcycles are being cleared out of a collection and all are RSBFS worthy. In today’s case, just on the off chance that you were in the market for a pristine RG500 Gamma with low miles, let us share some of the details.

1985 Suzuki RG500 Gamma for sale on eBay!

The Suzuki RG500 should need little introduction on these pages, but if you Rip Van Winkled your way through the 1980s then a brief refresh might be in order. Designed to be a 500cc GP racer for the street, the big Gamma was of two-stroke configuration and utilized a square four engine arrangement (think of it as a siamesed pair of parallel twins connected at the crank). This was very much in line with the race bike, which was long before the four-stroke days of the current MotoGP. Intake and breathing was via 4 carbs synchronized through disk valves. And since two-strokes are very sensitive to exhaust pressure, the Gamma had four independent chambers; one for each cylinder. The frame of the Gamma was box-sectioned aluminum with castings for the headstock welded on. Front forks were high-tech air-adjustable with anti-dive, while the Full Floater rear suspension made due with preload only. As was in vogue in the day, the front hoop was a diminutive 16 incher, with a standard 17 inch wheel in the rear. Figure 95 HP pushing a 340 pound (dry) package; when the tach swings above 6,500 RPM, you’d better be holding on.

From the seller:
Suzuki RG500 GAMMA, mint condition.
With only 1060 Miles or 1700 KM and year production 1985, this is a very rare bike.
Complete JollyMoto Exhausts, make an astonishing sound.
Gsxr Wheels and front brake spacer to use original caliper.
Portuguese documents.
You can see by the photos, there in not even one single scratch or dent.
Original painting and decals all over the bike.
It has 2 keys.
Feel free to ask more pictures.
Bike is located in Portugal – Lisbon, but we work with Chas Mortimer Ltd to ship bikes to UK. You can also call them and ask for a feedback – shipping price is included.

This particular example has a popular mod that does away with the dreaded 16″ front rubber. It also sports some of the ultimate two-stroke pipe porn in the form of Jolly Moto chambers. Not only do the Jolly Motos weigh less than the stock pipes, they flow much better as well. That adds a power gain to the HP column, and an additional smile factor inside the helmet. They also make a fabulous sound at full song. The rest of the bike looks to be in pretty good condition overall (based on the photographs). Asking price is $32,500 US, with the seller open to offers. These are reasonably rare bikes that do not come up for sale all that often, although we do see Canadian bikes more frequently imported in the US. Given that this eclipses the 25 year mark for used bikes, importation into many States might be easier. Check out all of the details and photos here, and Good Luck!!

Nobody Puts Baby In a Corner: 1986 Suzuki RG500 Walter Wolf

Of all of the fun, cool and very rare motorcycles we post here on RSBFS every day, few bikes get me as excited as a Walter Wolf edition of the mighty Suzuki RG500 Gamma. Festooned with the livery of Canadian businessman, motorsports enthusiast and general all around very rich guy, the Walter Wolf livery was available in both 250cc and 500cc Gamma variants, and was largely a cosmetic affair. Sporting what looks like black or dark blue – but in sunlight is actually a deep purple – the WW models came with livery-specific bodywork and instrumentation.

1986 Suzuki RG500 Walter Wolf for sale on eBay

The 500cc Gamma is no stranger to these pages, and enthusiasts everywhere have been viewing these brutal, square-four two strokes as road going GP bikes. In truth, these were more potent than the RZ500 competition, and sharper than most sport bikes of the era. They also held in reserve a lot of potential which could be coaxed out by clever and respected tuners, making them a bit of the holy grail for those seeking the combo of rarity, smokiness and outright speed.

From the seller:
Been sitting for years , ridden once and put into storage serious offers around $50.000, plastic needs repair , but not paint

To be honest, there is not much to go on with this one, but that doesn’t mean it’s not worth the effort. The seller claims it is in excellent shape, but also notes the plastics are in need of repair – but not paint. That could mean something non-visible, such as mounting tabs on the back being broken off (not uncommon). Zooming in on the photos show some minor scuff and wear, but I imagine this would clean up nicely. There appears to be a “ran when I parked it” vibe going on here, so it is not obvious if it currently runs. But if it’s been sitting I would recommend a leak down test to ensure the crank seals are still tight; nobody here wants to see this beauty seize. There is no detail in the ad on the total number of miles (kilometers) travelled, however a close up of the speedo shows 13,098 KMs, which equates to just over 8,100 US miles.

This is both an auction as well as a Buy It Now, however the starting bid and the BIN number are one and the same – just under $48k USD, or 60K in Canadian dollars. That is big money for a lot of (unclean) unknowns, but those unknowns need not be bad. There might be a real gem here – after all, it’s a freaking RG500 Walter Wolf Gamma! Check out all of the details here, and Good Luck!!

500cc, And Only 800 Miles: 1986 Suzuki RG500 Gamma

In the last couple of years there as been an undeniable increase in demand for 80s and 90s sport bikes.  Collectors are keen to achieve childhood dreams and this era motorcycle has seen a sharp increase in pricing.  Another trend has been that the highest demand is for bikes with the lowest miles.  There have been a few notable sales of brand new, zero mile 30 and 40 year old motorcycles recently.  This 1986 Suzuki RG500 Gamma is titled in CA and shows just 800 miles.

The tree production years saw 9284 of these 500cc, two strok, twin cranked, square four cylinder machines made.  Many were raced, or just well used.  It is uncommon to find a clean example, and even less rare to find one already in the USA.  This bike also has a California title, that will certainly widen the appeal.

Factory rated at just under 100hp and rev’ing to almost 12k RPM, this was an serious performance machine in the day.  Sub 11 second quarter mile times are still fast in the automotive world today.  There were many outlets to modify these bikes, and some options could net almost 120hp.  Weight for the RG was reported to be in the 400 pound range

From The Seller’s eBay Listing:

A near perfect fully tuned Suzuki RG500 Gamma 1986 model. Only 800 original miles and still on the original tires. Sold new in California this Canadian Spec bike spent its entire life with one owner until his passing. In a twist of fate the original importer who sold it got a phone call and bought it back. He had it fully serviced and then help it 5 years. The bike has a California title on non-op registration. Sold with a bill or sale and the pink if you so desire to register it. It came with the manuals tool kit and a full assortment or spares like a head gasket set and the stock Canadian turn signals and the rear seat. The bike currently has the euro turn signals on it. One small stain on the lower right corner of fuel tank from something leaning on it looks to be a rust stain. It’s reported the owner road the bike one summer then put it into his collection and never road it again. Great article about this motorcycle in pictures. Or Google Carrillo Suzuki RG500 Gamma.

Commanding a $60,000 Buy It Now price, this bike is priced aggressively.  But with so few miles and preserved in stunning original condition there are no comparable bike to benchmark pricing.  This truly is a case that the seller can ask any price and hope to find a collector that wants to add one of the nicest RG500s to their garage.

Odd that the seller used pictures with arrow watermarks for the listing, and did not provide detailed images of the noted tank stain.   What can clearly be seen is that this is a very clean example and includes many extra parts and details that make this package very appealing.

Upsizing – 1985 Suzuki RG500 in Australia

Update: this listing expired overnight, but is still worth a look !  Push “See original listing”  -donn

Most RG500’s seen on RSBFS chronicle the lucky-if-you-can-hang-on 500 two-stroke, but this Aussie example has been bored out to 570cc and well equipped to handle the extra ponies.  It’s finished in a very good dub of Heron Racing’s 80’s livery, and looks just about flawless.

1985 Suzuki RG500 ( Australia ) for sale on eBay

Suzuki had delayed the road-going RG500 until GP technology had moved on a bit ( and engineers had also wrapped up their work on the GSX-R750 ) but it was still heralded as a race bike for the road.  Its 95 hp were a revelation for a ride weighing under 400 lbs., though the square four’s airboxes filled out the fairing.  Using a small cross section alloy chassis, Hamamatsu carefully engineered the RG500 to handle the power, along with air adjustable forks with anti-dive.  Smallish 260mm brakes and staggered 16 and 17-inch wheels were along the smaller, lighter line to quickness.

Evidently built and imported from England, this RG500 shows beautifully and has some later, larger brakes to go with its additional horsepower, and lightweight modular Astralite wheels.  Not quite sure what year this animal is, but there’re no significant differences over the three model years.  Suzuki had their own Skoal livery for a few limited editions, but this more faithful replica has a bit more flash.  Comments from the eBay auction:

Well this is a hard one as I absolutely LOVE this bike.
Bike was built in England and I have many many receipts, can’t remember when she was brought into Australia but it was a long time and has been previously registered in WA, so no issues there.
The bike is now a 570 with Jim Lomas pipes, Astra Light Wheels and bigger brakes etc, all of the original parts paper work and workshop manual go with the sale.
Plastics are all original Suzuki, also have the original pillion seat.
I ride this bike at least twice a month and it absolutely beautiful to ride, I am fortunate enough to have two RG’s and this is my favorite but due to downsizing she has to go.
This bike is an absolute show stopper and I doubt you will see another one like her, irreplaceable in my mind. 

Team Heron was contracted when Suzuki took a break from a works GP team, and had some significant success with factory support.  They even commissioned a series of – carbon fiber chassis and swingarms – which gave the fire breathing lump a stable if all-enclosing platform.  Suzuki’s Skoal livery was a tribute to the team’s efforts, and appeared on a few different models.  Nice to hear this example is ridden regularly, and looks so great even so.  The ask is right up there and the post-transaction costs won’t be insignificant, but could be a smart investment given the current market.

1986 Suzuki GSX-R 1100 for sale on CL

I have owned it for several years and it starts, runs, idles, rides and stops well.
It wears the uncommon Union Jack livery and it is good cosmetic and mechanical shape. It is largely original with the following minor exceptions, VH pipe, filter pods, windshield, bar ends and fuel tank breather hose. It does not leak oil or anything else.

500#’s of 1986 in your face!
130hp, 5 speeds and 18″ shoes at both ends of this period correct GSX-R 1100. You don’t see these floating around too often- This one averaged 800 miles per year and wears 35 pretty darn well.

 
 



1986 VFR 700 with spares For Sale on CL

Comes with original wheels, box of new parts (previous owner went into a Honda shop that was closing and bought out their vfr inventory of parts)

This VFR has only covered 24,000 miles or 685 miles per year over it’s life and it presents very well. Honda’s Red, White and Blue paint has always been my favorite VFR offering. This one won’t last long priced at $4,500.

 
 


1995 Yamaha FZR600 with only 4,950 miles for sale on CL!

A perfect OEM 1994 Yamaha FZR600 for sale. BONE STOCK! No pipes, no carb kit, nothing aftermarket. The condition of this bike is almost perfect.

I know some of you won’t believe me when I say this, but . . . This one is a bit LOUD even for me! There’s no denying it’s in great shape, all original and super low miles for a 26 year old machine. I’m not sure on the $5,250 price tag though- What are your thoughts?

 
 


2014 Aprilia RSVR RF #143 of 200 for sale on CL

#143 came stock wtih Ohilns, Brembo, traction and wheelie control to help keep this 200hp rocket under control. This one is priced at $15,995 and has covered 3,300 miles. I’m down with this one- #ApeNation

 
 


1995 Yamaha GTS1000 with only 6,000 miles!

Super low miles on this GTS! These were heavily marketed as long distance sport touring machines, but apparently, this one didn’t get the message. There’s no price listed in the ad which leads me to believe it must be really cheap :rolleyes: If you call on this one please let us know the price.

 
 


1989 Honda GB500 Cafe Racer for sale on CL

First year of the highly collectible Honda GB500. This beautiful and rare bike was purchased from the original owner and has 5000 original miles on it.

I thought it was pretty cool and I have the keys to my posts 🙂

 
 



2002 Suzuki GSX-R 600 Telefonica Repli Racer for sale on CL

This is a very rare bike, and the only downside I found to owning one of these is that it did tend to draw way too much attention whenever and wherever I parked it, so I always covered it!

Buyer beware! 🙂

 
 



1986 Suzuki RG500 Gamma for sale on CL

1986 Suzuki RG-500 “Gamma” 4 cylinder 500cc two stroke!! Street legal MOTO GP/GP 500 style bike from the 2 stroke good old days!! They only made thees bikes for 2 years 86-87 and they were NEVER imported to the US, only brought in through the gray market!! So having one here on the west cost that is legally registered here in Washington is quite RARE!! (fashioned after Barry Sheene’s GP-500 bike from the early to mid 80’s) Legally registered in the state of Washington, (now with collector plate) and was registered in Oregon. I am the second owner of this bike, it was imported from South Africa from the original owner, a South African gentlemen that now lives in Oregon. BONE STOCK with just less than 19,500 kilometers on the speed-o (12,116) Miles. This is a insane 250 lbs HTFO-Rocket!! That I just can’t seem to open up in my area of Wa. (to meany cops) So my baby just sits in a heated garage/shop. Bike has ALWAYS been in a garage, and never used in bad weather!! My loss your gain First $35,000 gets it…..!!

Why it is that whenever you blog about a rare bike it seems like 5 more pop out of nowhere? Case and point- Last weeks B-O-B’s had a low mileage RG in it and this one popped up this week. Just as the seller states- these were never imported to the states, but as any long time viewer knows, there are a few of them floating around. This one looks to be in great shape!

Cheers!

Moto Guzzi Daytona For Sale on Craigslist!

Big, Beautiful, and Body Positive- I’d ride it!
Even though Guzzi describes it as a “sport bike” this, 450#, shaft driven machine pales in comparison to today’s 200hp rockets, but it does have a certain mystique about it. I bet with a set of pipes the 992cc V2 would belt out a musical note worthy of the top spot on Mikes Mix-Tape. The reach from the seat to the clip-ons looks to be a bit long- can anyone confirm this?

2007 Bimota DB6 Delirio For Sale on Craigslist!

Simply a work of Hyper Bike Art. The Italians know what I like and continue to build some of the most eye pleasing machines- I could sit and look at this one All. Day. Long.

01 of 23 built in the world.
Power is from a Ducati 992cc SOHC L-twin paired with a six-speed transmission, and the bike is finished in Red/white with carbon fiber fenders and engine covers.

Additional features include Brembo radial front disc brakes with wave rotors, Zard mufflers, a steering damper, an inverted Marzocchi fork, and seating for two.

 
 


1989 Honda Hawk in Grey For Sale on Craigslist!

I had one of these gems on last weeks B-O-B’s post and as long as I keep finding them you’re going to keep seeing them 🙂
Super cool bikes that never gained much traction as a street machine, but they have plenty of cult following on the track. Back in the day, I had the opportunity to purchase one of these, but at the time I was all in on FZR400’s. Much older and wiser now, I kick myself for not buying it when I had the chance.

Rides great no funny noises or smells, no overheating problems, battery is new , good chain & sprockets, good brakes, good tires, original paint, no accidents, just in great shape, no oil leaks it’s a Honda.

It’s a Honda- Preach it Brother!

 
 


Capirossi Ducati Monster on the cheap!

Nothing too crazy here other than some snazzy decals. However, $4,000 for a 2,000 mile Ducati seems like a pretty good deal to me, but apparently, I’m an outlier because this one has been sitting on CL for a while.

Showroom condition on this Capirossi Monster. Only 65 of these were shipped to the USA.

 
 


1990 Honda CB-1 For Sale on Craigslist!

Another small Honda that didn’t garner too much attention when it was released, but I have to tell you- these are some neat little bikes. This 400cc inline four has gear driven cams and a 13,500 screaming red line. You don’t see these very often and when you do, they’re usually all jacked up with nasty paint, bumps and bruises. This one “appears” to be pretty nice and would make a great grocery getter or commuter.
What do you all think about these?

1990 Honda CB-1, 6 speed, 25,500 miles. Rare bike: 400cc inline four with gear driven cams, revs to 13.5k RPM. 3rd owner (all were in Bay Area), parked in garages its whole life. Under 300 miles on Pirelli Sport Demon tires. Original paint and seat.

 
 


1972 Laverda 750 SF1 – Italian Cafe Racer For Sale on Craigslist!

These older “Cafe Racer” machines always make me smile and while it would be a bad move on my part; if I owned this I’d wear a leather helmet and smoke goggles while riding it. You know- for the nostalgic kool factor.
