Re: Gsx-R750 86 Project
Thanks for info, very interesting. I have owned it since 2004 and It was my main ride until I got the Ducati about 5 years ago, you know with the rip off we pay for motorbike rego we pay in NZ, bikes tend to stay on hold for a while. It has 74,000 km on it and as you can tell pretty good condition. When I have taken for occasional fang, still amazed how a bike built in the mid 80s handles so well.
I binned my 1200 GS on the way to Burt Munroe meet last year, in a wash out between Raglan and Kawhia, broke my ankle and even though rode bike back to Auckland, it was written off ( replaced with later watercooled version. Much improved on earlier model) So can't ride dirt bikes anymore sold CRF 250. "Sturmbannführer " wife suggests it time to cull the road fleet as well ! and while agreeing we do have to downsize, it's hard ! I had considered selling Slabby, and a mate that races GS 1000 in Post Classics, had a buyer lined up, but they seem to go for much higher quid overseas then NZ. So F..K it ! I might just strip it and rebuild to brand new condition. It would be a good project to do with my son. Hope parts are still available. Thanks Mate.
