THE BIKE SPECIALISTS, TRADING STANDARD AWARD WINNERS. We have the pleasure of offering for sale our fantastic Suzuki RG500. Sporting the stunning Blue and white livery this machine is without doubt the best example we have ever seen and an absolute credit to it's previous owners. This low mileage example has covered just 25,332 miles. It offers an extremely rare opportunity to own a true full powered UK version (not to be confused with the restricted Japanese imports) of this legendary 2 stroke iconic Suzuki. The bike has been totally restored including a full engine rebuild carried out by Padgett's of Batley in 2004 and is supplied with a whole host of receipts, invoices and MOT's dating back to the early nineties. The package also includes the rear seat, original sales brochure and various articles about the RG500 and the bike will benefit from a service and full MOT prior to sale. The mid eighties were a glorious time for two strokes with the Yamaha RD500 YPVS and the Suzuki RG500 fighting it out for the top spot. Launched in 1986 the RG500 with its water cooled four cylinder two-stroke engine was the closest thing to riding a GP bike on the road. The two stroke engine was pretty much the same engine that won the GP' races of the seventies. The RG production unfortunately ceased in 1989 as harsher emission and noise controls slowly started to stranglehold the performance two strokes of the day. Our example offers a once in a lifetime opportunity to own what must be, in our opinion, one of the best examples of this 80's dream bike for sale in the world. Please do not hesitate to call us for any further details, a small deposit will secure this vehicle. UK and worldwide delivery options available.
