1986 gsx-r

Picking up a 1986 GSX-R to restore. Hoping to get appearance back to stock. Runs good and felt good going through the gears.

Great to keep these classic bikes alive. If you're not going to keep it, it will be very saleable!

And working on any project is so rewarding. I picked up a couple of little aprilia RS50s recently and thoroughly enjoy the challenges it presents.

Looks to be in very good condition !!! An iconic bike that changed the sport bike market when it arrived.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

Been wanting to get an old school GSX-R or ZX-7 for awhile, but concerned about the condition. Luckily a local man near me acquired this and owns vintage motorcycle shop. He has been through the carbs and going through all electrical, new brakes and tires as part of the sale.

I’m always looking at old sport bikes on EBay/ craigslist also. My favorite is the early 90s ZX-7, lime green with the dual round headlights. Soooo cool.

Also miss my ‘95 GSX-R750.....it was about 8 different colors and zero low end torque, but I loved it. Had a blast on that thing.

Been working on the GSX-R, sent wheels and other bits for powder coating, new grips, instrument panel, and few other items. Polished it up.
