Hello, New member here, just picked up a '93 GSXR600

Hi everyone!

I am back on a gixxer after few years, just bought a pristine low miles 1993 GSXR600. I will post more photos once it's in my physical possession, still have to go pick it up. It will need some minor refreshing since it sat for a little while, but I'm optimistic I'll be riding it in no time!

Good looking bike and it looks to be unmolested.

Wow! That is indeed clean. Looks to be COMPLETELY original. Wish mine was in that good of shape when I found it. Welcome back to the dark side, and good luck...

Thanks for all the kind words everyone! It was indeed as nice as it seems. Has been sitting for quite awhile though so I'll need to do some minor maintenance. I intend to keep it as original as possible, but at the same time making it rideable. My current shopping list includes: flush fuel tank, new fuel filter and fuel lines, clean/rebuild carbs (if they look badly varnished), rebuild calipers/flush brake fluid and stainless brake lines, new tires (tires are from 2000!), and flush the coolant. Other than that I think I should be good to go! I added a couple of photos here
