suzuki gt250 x7This bike has not been used since 1982 when its owner had a work accident & died. The bike was passed to his brother who put it in his garage where it sat for 20 years then i was asked to restore it in 2002 for my girlfriend's uncle. When it came to me it was in a rusty condition after years in damp garage. As a professional motorcycle mechanic. i took it on as a winter project & sympathetic restore. This was at a time when ebay did not exist as it does now. so only main dealers & breakers to source parts from. The owner wanted me to do it as close as i could to how his brother had it. This bike is 97% original with its parts that came off. It was fully striped down. the frame was powder coated. engine was striped and fitted with new seals gaskets & first over size rebore done. Then painted with Suzuki grey engine paint. top end silver. It had new wheel bearings. head bearings and the forks re hardchromed & still mint The kick start lever. gear lever. rear brake lever were all painted silver. down pipes blacked all due to rusty chrome so paint was next best choice. The wheels repainted blue as they had been when it came to me with rims polished. The seat was professionally recovered at a coach trimmers. ront break was rebuilt with new piston & seals. ront pads. aster cylinder had full rebuild kit. ear brake had new shoes. The carburettor's striped & cleaned the old copper floats replaced with new genuine Suzuki ones. All cables replaced new throttle. lutch. peedometer & rev counter. The mirrors. rips. oot peg rubbers. ndicators. ars & silencers all genuine Suzuki parts. The paint work was done by a local guy who then told me he could not get the three black pinstripe decals so he put the ones you see on from a slightly later model. The bike cost around 2k to put it into the condition it was in 13 years ago & its not far away from that at the moment. Every thing on this bike is working & it's running well revs crisp. I have started it with remote tank due to suspected pin holes in the fuel tank now see pictures. I think the tank needs minor repair before fuel is added to it it has been dry of fuel for years so should aid the repairs by a painter with no fuel vapour to contend with or tank liner to put in. Overall this bike is in seriously great condition for its age. One key fits all. ignition. tank cap. seat. & even steering lock. Genuine U. K. bike not import. If you wish to view or wish to ask any thing about it you can call me on 01482 844988 adam. working hours 8am till 6pm no sundays.  Please no time wasters dreamers or tyre kickers.  This is cash on collection only THANKS FOR LOOKING HAPPY BIDDING
