A one off Suzuki GSX-R1000 originally belonging to 500cc world champion Kevin Schwantz is up for auction.

The bike, which will be auctioned off later this month, was built for Schwantz’ visit to the Isle of Man in 2007 for the TT centenary celebrations.

Special features include a paint scheme mirroring the rider’s RGV500 race bike, a Yoshimura exhaust system and lacquered signature.
