I'm selling my 96 gsxr (in avatar) and I would love to find a pic of the yosh team superbike from that year. Something to show the perspective buyer what the race version looked like from that year. I remember they had a "book of speed" but I googled it, and came up empty. I knew I should have kept that book! dammit!

can someone help me with this? thanks in advance.

thanks for the effort OEM, I really do appreciate it. I was hoping for a close-up pic of the one that was in the book of speed, or at the motorcycle shows of that year, in the yosh display area of the shows. do you know which one I'm talking about?...it had a #1 on the plate & I don't think it had any other sponsor stickers on it. and those you found look like maybe a '97, not positive though.

thanks

Ok, I dug up some old pics I took at a show in 96. Glad I found them.... this is the look I was going for in modding my bike (rear cowl tapeworks stripes, wheels, etc.) bottom pics are what mine looks like now.

Nice pics!! I just sold my '97. It had 750 where your SRAD was.
Of course, I had to take that off!

Nice bike, how much are you trying to get for it? I had a few hits when I put mine up F/S on here but
ended up selling locally.

I have it in the cycle trader (Orange, L.A & Riverside counties) for $5,800. I know that may seem a little steep, but it's only got 9,200 miles and lots of "extras". It's had some interest already at that price & a guy is coming over tomorrow to take a look.

Nice ride! I got $4400 for my '97 with a some of that same mods. Yours is definitely worth $5800 with all that stuff.
Don't think there's much market for a $5800 nine year old 750 though.
Post up the link, or better yet... put it up in here in the Bikes fo Sale section.
Good luck!

Edit - Already in that section. I'll bump it, for a super clean bike!

well, looks like this old girl is sold. I took a 1,000 (non-refundable) deposit today and the guy's coming over mid-week to drop off the rest of the cash & pick it up. I got $5,600 for it. this was the first guy to actually came see it in person. I'm gonna leave it in the FS section until it's final just in case.

ya know, it's funny.....the guy's brother & all his friends ride bikes (mostly gixxers). his bro doesn't believe a '96 can be worth that much, have such low miles and be so clean....he thinks something's gotta be fishy with it. hell, I have all maintenance records w/ mileages. he's gonna have it "checked out" by someone after he gets it. I'm sure it'll be fine, but I agreed to take it back if anything major is wrong.

Outstanding! Hope the deal goes thru! I believe you are both getting a good deal! Maybe him more than you...
That buyer must understand the value that you have invested in the bike!
Not easy to find a buyer like that. Or an older gixxer like that! :headbang
