For the old school(00-02) gsxr's..Rarity?

I guess my sentimental value of my old bike must have gone up. I was offered 5g's for mine the other day which I thought was an excellent offer considering the age but as I get to looking...You just don't see them around like you use to. Now I do see this gen from time to time but they're always clapped out. Big dings in the frame, lowered, hacked to piece headers to install some late model mini pipe down by the swing arm, etc, etc. I guess I love the 'stock-ed-ness' of mine. One little chip around the gas gap, and a small, insignificant scratch on the rear passenger peg from when it was crashed and repaired with all OE parts years ago and never noticed it till the other day.

I was just checking on 'common' OE replacement parts the thing and a large percentage have been discontinued which only lets me know how old I've grown in this whole scene.

ho-hum. Maybe I'll break down and get a new one and leave this one to collect dust to always remember the ol' glory days of being 21, having a brand new, and one of the latest and greatest bikes under the crotch.

No reason to put it up. The old ones do just fine with a decent rider.

Werd. I know my 98 is outdated. But To ride it and see it go down the road is awesome. Parts availability is a sometimes, but OE parts are easily found (for me anyway) at ron Ayers. I've always loved the "Superman" gsxrs

It's nearly impossible to find an unmolested '00 - '02 model Gixxer. There are some low mile garage queens out there but you have to look long and hard for one. That bike is in great shape.

I'd love to have an older SRAD 750, or a mid 90's zx-7, or a 900 RR (the one with the holes in the fairings). When I was in high school those were the bikes all over the magazines, that I would drool over every day.

Secks.

Those were the cool ones, not these later ones, I was driving my 97 Camaro and at the gas station some guy said I love the old school Camaros, and I thought to myself this aint oldschool my 69 on the other hand is what I consider my old school one, lol. Only problem with these and all old school stuff is this gas and carbs dont get along to well, sure makes it tough to love one, unless U ride it everyday. I got a 97 Bimota SB6R with the old school gsxr1100 engine and it is the bomb untill it starts missing and I have to clean carbs again
