Oh, and I forgot to add a rear Woodcraft stand, and a front stand. A mighty vac, too!

The trailer in itself is nicely set up.

The previous owner is a real cool stand up guy, too. Thanks man!

Basicly, this is what I got...

A nicely set up trailer/bike combo with everything listed in the Seller's original post:

********
Up for grabs is a 1998 Suzuki GSXR 600 race bike with trailer and a whole lot of extras. The price: Only $2,200. The bike can not be made street legal and can only be sold with a bill of sale. This bike was built strictly for racing and should only be purchased for that purpose. The parts alone would yield more than the asking price and the trailer can be found online for over $2,000.

Included on this bike is the following:
„ Race Tech Gold Valve Forks
„ Penske Shock (refreshed by Traxxion Dynamics)
„ Yoshimura Ride Smart-3 SS exhaust system
„ Tyr Sox tire warmers (set)
„ Toby 19-adjustment steering damper
„ XT Racing-Ultra lap Timer
„ Digi digital gear indicator
„ New EBC HH pads
„ Vortex tank cap
„ New Battery
„ Factory jet kit-professionally tuned on dyno
„ NRC side engine covers
„ New drive chain
„ Custom maded rear sets
„ New Speedscreen windshield
„ Fairing bracket with replaceable stays
„ ORM repair manual
„ Braided SS brake lines
„ Rear stand spools
„ Front and rear stands
„ (2) 5-gallon Fuel Jugs with filler hoses

Extras and Spares included:
„ Set of wheels with spare cush-drive
„ Vortex front/rear sprockets
„ Instrument gauges
„ Sub frame
„ Replacement fairing stays
„ Six piston brake calibers
„ Floating brake rotors
„ Synthetic race oil and filter
„ Coolant additive
„ Windshield
„ Other Misc parts and items

In addition to all that above the buyer will get a 1998 Pace CargoSport enclosed 6x10 trailer customized to accommodate the weekend motorcycle enthusiast. Six recessed D-rings are installed. There are two removable front wheel chocks, a storage shelf with hanger bar, storage racks. The trailer is even wired for externally supplied 110 AC. The floor of the trailer is finished with a black and white checkerboard pattern.

The bike will require work to get it ready for the track. Remember it has been sitting in the trailer for several years now.

********

Here's the work that will be required (as far as I can tell):

I guess the right front caliper was leaking, and the brake fluid basicly soaked into the front tire (or so it seems).
The battery's dead, but he said it was new, so maybe I can just recharge it?
The carbs are probably gummed up, but the bike ran perfect prior to storage. Hopefully just needs to be opened up and cleaned out... or maybe just run Seafoam through it (I hope moreso).
Would be nice to re-paint it, but not really neccessary.
The fork seals are not too bad, but I probably oughto replace them.

Other than that, it seems just fine for a basicly free racebike!


All this for $2.5k

I'm gonna sell a few things, since the real reason I got this was actually for the trailer. (I need the trailer for my business, and I can use it to store things in, rather than pay $75/month for storage).

I actually told my wife I would sell the bike, and with the sale of the bike and other goods, and the savings on our storage fees, we'd end up with a very cheap trailer for my business.

I'm gonna fix the bike up, and test it out on the track, then probably sell it.
I'll be selling one of the ramps, the stands, the Tyr Sox, etc., too.







Unless I can convince my wife otherwise....
