    How much money does it take to build an 80mph GPR?

    After seeing this boat for sale on Ebay, it got me thinking how much $$ it would take to mod the Gp1200r to get at least 80 mph? Without converting it to a 4 stroke RXP motor.

    This guy wants $30k for his, which is a crazy price.

    This was the Worlds record ski that Riva built. At the time it had the absolute best of everything.

    Times have changed. Today a $10,000 conversion would give it a very bad spanking.

    My thoughts exactly, in 2002/2003 it might have been worth $30,000. Not now. Still a very nice boat.

    i will give him 1200 for the seat.

    it takes a fair bit to get a GP1200R to 80mph unless your name is Ronn then it seems to take about 2 weekends and a few bolts on....
