1994 Suzuki RGV Lucky Strike 250cc race replica street bike For Sale

How tasty is this RGV250 wearing the Lucky Strike bodywork?!

quote from seller’s Craigslist ad:

Street legal in Arizona. Last registered in 2005. Has enough milage to register in California. This is an original, factory, street legal, limited production Lucky Strike. Clean title, very rare. Finally, after many offers, I ‘m ready to part with her. 14,004 km (app 7 k miles). Adult owned, no track days. Was mainly used as display. Have a new set of plastics on the bike[…]

As awesome as this bike is with the title, desirable graphics, and low miles, I just can’t see $12k considering how many other 2 strokes I’ve listed for far less. Am I crazy or is the seller? Leave a comment and tell us what you think!

Suzuki GSX-R Blowout Post: 5 Classic Gixxer’s on eBay Right Now!

Apparently these aren’t quite as hard to find as I thought! Here are 5 great looking classic GSX-R sportbikes for sale right now on eBay:


1986 Suzkuki GSX-R 750
– This one only has 17k miles and wears the original body work that is in shockingly good condition considering this bike is 22 years old! Has a buy-it-now for $5200.


1990 Suzuki GSXR750
– Nice upgrades on this one include: Later forks, Marchesini rims, Cosworth pistons, Yoshimira exhaust and cams, Keihin carbs, and more. This sucker is loaded and the auction is about to end at just under $3k reserve not met. What a shame, although I’d be secretly thrilled if it were my bike and it hadn’t sold!!


And three more GSX-R 1100 models: an 86, 87, and 89!

Have experience with an old GSX-R like one of these? Leave a comment and tell us about it!

Sharp Looking 1989 Yamaha FZR400 For Sale

I love this color scheme! The white with red graphics are so classic looking. Check out this 1989 Yamaha FZR400 For Sale on eBay.

quote from seller’s eBay listing:

This is a super clean 1989 Yamaha FZR400 up for auction. Runs as great as it looks, too! A true screamer. The only non-stock part to the bike is the Vance & Hines exhaust system. This bike has been well loved and taken care of by its owner for many years. As such, it has been ridden. The clock shows just in excess of 27,000 miles. Still, the engine’s got great compression and runs just as strong as the day it was brought home. CLEAR TITLE, of course.

Less than a day to go on this one, but it’s already met reserve at just over $2300. Someone is going to score a great track bike or weekend playtoy! The owner is almost apologetic about the condition in referring to the bikes age, but the pictures sure do tell another story — it looks great to me!

quote from eBay posting:

The bike is all factory original with 38,000kms and although i’m not a mechanic-I think it does require a good going over as it was in storage for over 12 years. It does in fact run and usually starts on the very first kick with the choke on. It does however have a few imperfections due to its age but has never been crashed while being driven as far as I can see. Appears as though it was dropped while being pushed around or maybe it fell off the stand.

These RZ’s have that crazy 2 stroke, 4 cylinder “square” configuration with two cranks! Read more about the RZ500 at How Stuff Works.
