A charity is offering bike fans a unique chance to own a one-off machine built to be ridden during the Centenary celebrations of the Isle of Man TT in 2007.
Suzuki GB has donated the special motorcycle to charity BEN, the Motor and Allied Trades Benevolent Fund.
The GSX-R1000 was built for 1993 500cc World Champion Kevin Schwantz to ride when he visited the TT during the 100th anniversary celebrations.
The unique motorcycle features a paint-scheme echoing the legendary rider's RGV500 race bike, with additions such as a Yoshimura exhaust system and lacquered signature too.
The machine will be auctioned during the BEN Ball later this month, where the charity will be celebrating its 75th anniversary. The Suzuki will be the star motorcycle lot among a number of auction items which BEN hopes will help raise £150,000.
Suzuki GB sales and marketing director David Taylor said:
‘BEN is a charity close to all of our hearts due to their critical work supporting workers and their families from within the automotive industries.’
‘The Kevin Schwantz GSX-R1000 really is a one-off bike, with a fantastic story behind it. With its inclusion in this auction, someone will make a money can't buy dream a reality.’
