LOOK BID BUY!!!It's that time of year when a man needs something to tinker with in the garage. SCROLL DOWN FOR MORE PIC's & DESCRIPTION. This fine old 1978 Suzuki GS400X has recently been imported from North America where it has spent all its life – the air is thin and the climate is far kinder to motorcycles than ours. This and the fact it's only showing 14562 miles and has been in dry storage for the last umpteen years have helped maintain its boyish good looks. PLEASE CHECKOUT THE PICTURES. As you can see this bike is very nearly complete missing just the Ignition key. The bike has obviously stood a while so the carburetors are stuck & battery is flat. BUT NOW FOR THE GOOD NEWS. The bike is every bit as nice as it looks here. The wheels are straight with nice clean chrome rims. good hubs & brake plates. Forks & yokes look straight with good chrome. Mudguard is solid & very tidy. Tail light assy is good as are the headlight & hangers. Instruments & switches look great. Exhaust system is original – L/h side is solid but r/h side is going at the end. Seat isin very good condition throughout. Chain guard is tidy. The engine is cosmetically very clean. it turns over nicely off the kick starter – sounds/feels great & has compression – When we hooked it up to a good battery & fed it a few squirts of ether it starts & runs but the carbs do need cleaning. If you require any further information please give us a call or better still visit our showroom and have a good look over the bike for yourself – after all who are you going to believe me or your own eyes?
