It needed no army of trained technicians to make it run, or a crew to push start it like the Supermono did, or pro-level riding skill to appreciate, or a degree in engineering to understand. It just flat worked, everywhere, all the time. As always seems to be the case, the newer bike made more power, but was slightly heavier.

So why would you want one of these middle-child bikes? Well the style, first of all. Maybe I imprinted early and was inspired by the blue and white Gixxer I saw in high school, with one headlight sporting a bright yellow headlamp and one clear for a heterochromic, endurance-racing style. Or maybe the owner was just French….

Or maybe you plan to tear up the back roads on your classic Japanese sportbike and want to fit the latest, stickiest rubber. This bike is a truly unique example of a late model GSX-R in exceptional shape. Completely restored with rebuilt motor and painted only a few thousand miles ago, the chassis has 20K on it. Tons of extras, tuned, titled, registered, and ready to ride.
The transmission had the gears under-cut and shimmed shifts like butter. Also, I had a set of custom Velocity stacks made with screens and set of RamAir filters to slip over for riding on the street.
It has a ceramic coated exhaust Xtreme Coating full system from Yoshimura with a polished aluminum canister, less than miles on it. Suspension has been completely over hauled. The rear is off a 92 as well but has very trick and ultra-rare Metmachex swing arm imported from across the pond with eccentric adjusters, recently had polished less than miles.

1987 GSXR 1100 Nice Start Up
Complete serviced done miles ago, new oil, plugs, carbs and valves serviced, all maintenance done by local Suzuki mechanic for over 20yrs. Other than that, this bike looks absolutely perfect, except for the missing fairing lower that looks to have been removed for the video, to show the bike starting from cold.

And the turn signals are better than the stockers, but maybe something a bit less conspicuous would have been even nicer? Oh well….. No effing way. But 10k for this is insane.

The guy even says its just a feeler. I guess its whatever the time period was that we jumped in Tad. These are available in Australia from dealers for 4. Of course, whether or not this is a good aesthetic choice is still open to debate….
Many of the bikes I see that are in otherwise decent condition have way too many polished parts. Get all our new posts delivered to your email automatically. Spam free! Enter your email address:.
