Description

I'm selling my 1986 Suzuki RG 500 Walter Wolf
If you are not familiar with this bike, ead below.
The RG500 Walter Wolf was a very limited, ery distinctive edition of the 500cc Suzuki machine that has won seven championships in world class Gran Prix racing.. That racing heritage continued in 1986 with the Walter Wolf sponsored RG500 winning the Canadian National Pro and American Production Championships. The full power Walter Wolf RG 500 Gamma of which on 99 were produced, ere only exported to Canada. No one (including the Japanese domestic market) was to receive the real deal 95 HP Wolf.The Canadian bikes did not have the WW logo on the gauges nor the WW key. Of the 99 production Canada WW's a surprising number went to Mexico where Walter Wolf was a big name in F1 auto racing.circles.
I bought my WW from the original owner in 2001. He was a Suzuki dealer in Long Island New York. He used his connections to get the bike delivered to his dealership, nd had it registered and titled in New York State. When he sold it to me he included a Walter Wolf key blank, ots of magazines articles about the Suzuki Gamma. He also included a scale model "kit" that is in the original box, s well as "odds and ends".
Included in the "odds and ends" is misc hardware (turn signal lenses and "blanks"...and a fairing retro-fit from Suzuki Japan. I have the original owners manual and the factory shop manual. I also have a MPH speedometer. I believe I have the "proper" rear turn signals as well.
I have the 2-up seat.
I also have a complete set of micro-fiche..
When he sold it to me he also gave me the original shipping container....which I (sadly) threw away.
Just before he sold the bike to me he had a "low side". I had it repaired and refinished by Sean Lezotte of CCR. The color match is perfect. One of the canisters was "scuffed". I have some cans of the proper blue paint.
I installed new tires (Avon's). I had a gear dog break off....which I replaced.
I moved to Georgia in 2007 and titled the bike in Georgia (clean). In 2010 I had the bike "looked over" by one of the "famous" Gamma Gurus". who gave it a clean bill of health.
After his work and assessment I rode the bike for about 100 miles. I then parked it in a climate controlled garage..
That is the entire history of the bike except the issue of mileage. When I bought the bike it had a MPH speedometer on it that the previous owner said was necessary to pass NY inspection. The last "mechanic" to work on the bike replaced my MPH speedometer with my KPH speedometer...for unknown reasons. I would say the MPH speedometer number is correct. I have BOTH speedometers.
I am a motorcycle enthusiast. I have owned many high performance motorcycles over the past 30-35 years including RZ 500's, Nortons, riumphs, ickmans and other iconic street bikes.
This is a fine example of a really high performance motorcycle. Riding one of these V-4 Two Strokes is quite fun. Having owned the RZ and the RG, thought both were incredible..but the Suzuki was a better performer.
My pictures are not arranged in any particular order....and look horrible. I am no photographer.
I hope to get a fair price from an enthusiast.
If not, 'll keep it.
