A note of interest:
The bike was last ridden in 1988, competing in the Dutch championship, European championship, and was in three grand prix, TT of Assen, Francorchamps GP, and Donningtonpark GP.
This bike was only used one more time at Assen by Boet van Dulmen (ex_GP Dutch racer)on the parade of Assen in 1995, before the real races. The condition of the bike is very good. Besides the White Power front forks, the bike is completely standard.
The English version was called -MK8- I believe. If I'm wrong about the -MK8-, please let me know. This is the sort of bike Barry Sheene used to race in his days.
Speed week at Assen 1988.
At the Spa Francorchamps GP in Belgium.
This is what the 1983 Suzuki RGB 500 looks like at this moment. It was painted this color for Boet van Dulmen, who rode this bike in the Dutch TT parade lap in 1995, last time this bike was riden. This bike is a for real Japanese factory built race bike, lots of privateers got their hands on them in the early '80's. Now they are becoming rare and a must for collectors!

I have these pictures on my site to help a friend to sell his bike. I'm not involved in the sales of these bikes. I'm just posting the story on my site and I translate and shall forward any email to the owner. Thank you,
