WINTER MADNESS SALE. LOOK BID BUY!!!It's now officially winter & that time of year when you need something to tinker with in the garage.

PLEASE SCROLL DOWN FOR MORE PIC's & DESCRIPTION. This old 1978 SUZUKI GS550 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 machinery than ours.

PLEASE CHECKOUT THE PICTURES. As you can see this bike has got a few bits missing. a few bits damaged/broken. a few bits rusty/corroded. a few bits non standard & a few bits are very nice indeed.

The wheels are straight with nice clean chrome rims. good hubs & brake plates disc. caliper & working master cylinder. Forks & yokes look straight. Mudguards are solid &  tidy except for a small dent on the front.

Tail light assy is good (rear lens broken)as is the headlight & hangers. Instruments & switches look good. Fuel tank & side panel are faded but tank  is squeaky clean inside and has just minor marks & scratches in the original paint.

Exhaust system is original & solid but with some minor dents. The engine is cosmetically quite clean. it turns over nicely off the kick starter & displays compression. When we hooked it up to a good battery & fed it a few snorts of Ether it actually fired even without the carbs fitted.

If you require any further information or specific details please feel free to give us a call or better still visit our showroom and have a good look over this bike & others we have in stock.
