7-7-18 Update: Tim H notes that this bike is back up for sale with a serious discount – the asking price has been reduced from $4,500 to $3,200. It looks like someone bought the bike from Brian last year and is now looking to let it go themselves. Find it Glenview, Illinois for $3,200 here on Craigslist.


Built by Brian Lloyd, this monster of a thumper produces an estimated 70 horsepower. When you normally hear CR500, you think of one of the craziest production bikes to hit the dirt. But Brian has converted this CR into a road that’s perfect for someone who values lightweight bikes.

For more on the build, check out the Motorcyclist feature. The bike is currently being offered by someone who bought the bike from Mr. Lloyd last year. The bike features the front end from a 2016 Suzuki GSX-R, GP shift pattern, and a remote electric starter. It also has a rear wheel from a Suzuki SV650 – according to the seller, it’s the only part on the bike that’s heavier than the original bike, and it was done intentionally to add more weight in the back to “dampen the output of this monster two-stroke!”
