For all two stroke fans out there, here is a classic 4 cylinder square from Japan: the mighty RG400:
The bike is currently fitted with a complete (tobacco sponsored) ABS body work and it looks like this:
It is from an RG enthusiast in the United Kingdom, who has posted it on eBay, to collect the cash for another project as described below:
This advert is for my Suzuki RG400
The bike is currently fitted with a high quality ABS plastic aftermarket RG500 bodykit, including a tank cover, all with a very high quality Skoal Bandit paint scheme applied, the bodywork is less than 1000 miles old.
Also included in the auction price is the standard RG400 bodykit that you see in the last picture of the advert, it is in good general condition but the ears of the top fairing are broken in the usual place, complete with the tank (as there is a standard RG500 tank under the cover of the Skoal bandit tank cover) both tanks are completely rust free and in good condition.
The bike has just had a small overhaul that includes:
Brand new Nitron rear shock
Rebuilt front forks using all genuine Suzuki seals and bushes
All new rubber pipe work
Rebuilt carbs to cure the usual leaks from the overflow (all new internals)
New oil line check valves
New air filter
Newly completely rebuilt and painted front callipers included but not fitted (not that there is anything wrong with the originals)
Thoroughly cleaned and degreased
New control cables
New stainless fasteners throughout
Since the photo the front and rear seats, including the bum pad have been re-covered in the correct green
Spare seat in the correct colour for the original body kit also included
I have recently spent over £2000 on a sympathetic overhaul and subtle enhancement of the correct areas of this bike, I have used it for around 1000 miles this summer and now its time to move on to the next project, I have been offered an opportunity to buy another bike that I have been looking for, fir some time, that is the only reason why this is being offered for sale. I reserve the right to end the auction if that other bike sells before this one.
I am an RG400/500 enthusiast having owned many of these bike, this is the best one I have had, it goes, handles, and stops exactly as it should. With the fresh suspension and good correct tyres it handles properly and is very good fun, it never fails to put a smile on my face.
This is a proper get on and ride bike, it needs no jobs doing, and when you see it you will know that it is a good straight bike, that with the original bodywork on has not been messed around with at all. I welcome any inspection or test ride with the full asking in my hand.
Please feel free to ask any questions, but be quick as this is not the usual over priced rubbish that is on sale from the dealers.
This is a fixed price ad looking for 5600 GBP = just short of 9000 US or 6700 EUR
