To help aid you in valuing certain “iconic” motorbikes, we’re adding some of the machines we’ve sold before the auction site started!
Additional photos of this GSX-R 750 Limited Edition are available here for your perusal.
Are you looking for one of the most Iconic and collectible Suzukis ever built? This 1986 GSX-R750 LTD or “Limited Edition” is the one you need!
Just 299 were brought to the US to satisfy AMA Superbike requirements, and we believe only 500 of these bikes were actually produced in total. Intended as the basis for a production-based race bike, many were taken right to the track, and few survive in this kind of pristine condition.
The LTD is the only production GSX-R delivered from the factory with a dry clutch, which makes it that much more exotic, and was mated to a close-ratio transmission. Lightweight bodywork, including a solo tail, helped save weight, compared to the standard GSX-R750, while a longer swingarm, along with electronic anti-dive forks, calipers, and discs from the GSX-R1100 helped the bike handle and stop better.
This particular bike actually shows 10 miles on the odometer, but we’re sure it’s just from rolling to shows, events, etc as it shows no signs of ever being ridden. It’s 100% stock!
If you’re looking for a bike for a collection or museum, finding one with next to ZERO miles is going to be a challenge as I’ve only heard of two recently, and word has it that the Barber Museum just acquired one from the Midwest that was available for sale earlier this year. We offered $22K for that particular bike and didn’t even get a call back!
