The Suzuki GS1000E is the sought after chain final drive version of Suzuki's GS1000.
"During the 1970s Japan motorcycle builders all had copied the Norton "featherbed" frame, utting powerful inline 4-cylinder motors in them. From these similarities the term Universal Japanese Motorcycle (UJM) was coined. While Honda had good handling and Kawasaki the biggest power, t was Suzuki that managed to find the balance and really combine the two."
The GS1000 is the last model to feature a full tubular steel frame and classic tank and seat (without having the 2 shaped to fit into each other). Even with the extra CCs the GS1000 still managed to be about the same weight as its smaller brothers, he GS750 and GS850, aking it the ideal platform for a cafe racer.
It runs and rides excellently. Tank is pretty much dent free, ut paint could be redone. No cracks on the rear cowl, nd an extra seat pan is included as well as a few other parts (extra forks, arger 1981 GS1000 brakes, ew retro natural gum grips, ear seat cowl, ear fender cover). All registration fees are up to date as I ride it to work at least once a week. All electrical works great and compression is excellent. Starts up and runs from cold without issues. Has what I believe to be a Hines 4-into-1 chrome megaphone exhaust, ndividual air pods, nd rejected to match. Battery has been relocated to the rear cowl. Stock HP is 90. 4-to-1 is typically estimated to add about10-15HP.
Only selling because I already have 2 too many bikes.
