This big old 1979 Suzuki GS1000E 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. This and the fact it's only showing 21882 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 not complete missing the Indicators & reflectors. The King & Queen seat. Handle bars. Headlight & hangers are non standard items. Sadly the tank is dented on the top & silencers are holed. BUT NOW FOR THE GOOD NEWS. The bike is every bit as solid as it looks here. The wheels are straight with nice clean discs. calipers & working master cylinders. Forks & yokes look straight with good chrome. Mudguard is solid & tidy. Instruments & switches look great. Carburetors are free sliding off the twist grip. The engine is cosmetically very clean. it turns over nicely ?€“ sounds/feels great & has compression ?€“ When we hooked it up to a good battery & fed it fresh fuel it starts & runs.
