1976 suzuki RE5. rotary barn find / shop find

Up for offer is one of the most unique of all production motorcycles??. the rare SUZUKI RE 5 ROTARY.  

Only offered for three years?. in limited numbers. the Suzuki rotary powered motorcycle is perfect for the collector.  Rotary motorcycles were only produced by three manufacturers. and even then. in very limited quantities. As a result. they were extremely expensive.  This Suzuki RE5 is quite unique. easier to obtain parts from many sources and is currently very affordable.  

This true barn find (. well garage find. if we wish to be technical) is in great unrestored shape.  Complete with surface dust. but almost entirely intact and ready for love and care.   Everything?. including the dust?. is just as it was found.   We have not tried to start the bike but the engine turns over freely and compression is very evident.   With only 25772 miles shown on the odometer. one would think that with some care. this bike may just start right up and run nicely.  Most of the stainless and chrome should come back reasonably well. with some care and elbow grease. while some areas will require rechroming.   Cool original ducted exhaust pipes and lots of other cool rotary only items are in place.  This is one interesting water buffalo. Few spares are included such as a second seat. lens. center kickstand.

Please check out our youtube video on the bike for more details and a first hand close up look at this unique piece of motorcycling history from an era gone by??. never again to return.

Bid with confidence.  we can assist with shipping out of the country.  non-refundable $500 deposit due within 24 hours of auction end.  this bike is not currently running. so as much as you might like to fly in and ride it home. it will need to be transported.  

Please feel free to inspect the bike or send your inspector prior to auction end.  no post auction inspection games please.  Bill of Sale only. no title present.

Thanks for your interest in this incredible opportunity?. only a few of these rare machines left.
