2018 WINTER SALE.......LOOK BID BUY!!!
PLEASE SCROLL DOWN FOR MORE PIC's & DESCRIPTION.
This very much sought after 1st edition 1978 Suzuki GS1000 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 15516 miles and has been in dry storage for the last umpteen years have helped maintain its boyish good looks.
We have been unable to confirm this mileage reading. Please disregard it.
The single most important purchase for a classic restoration project is the bike to restore, whether it's going to be a commercial venture or just a hobby interest it all starts here!.
PLEASE CHECKOUT THE PICTURES........As you can see this bike is very nearly complete missing just the l/h side panel badge. It has obviously stood a while so the battery is nearly flat & tyres are perished. Sadly the seat cover is punctured.
BUT NOW FOR THE GOOD NEWS.........This is the actual bike you are bidding on – Not library pictures from 40 years ago & it is every bit as nice as it looks here.....A true time warp machine!. The wheels are straight with nice clean chrome alloy, good discs, calipers & working master cylinders. Forks & yokes look straight with good chrome. Mudguard is solid & tidy. Tail light assy is good as are the headlight & hangers. Instruments & switches look great. Carburetors are free sliding off the twist grip. Paintwork is solid, fuel tank is usably clean inside and has just minor chips & scratches in the original paint. Exhausts are original & solid. Seat base is in very good condition throughout. Indicators are tidy. Chain guard is tidy. Shock absorbers are damping fine. The engine is cosmetically very clean BUT BEST OF ALL when we hooked it up to a good battery & fed it fresh fuel it fires, starts, runs & revs.
This is only a very brief description….If you require any further information please give us a call or better still visit our showroom and have a good look over this bike & all the others we have on eBay for yourself – after all who are you going to believe me or your own eyes?
If you are ready for a new project & have been looking for a classic Suzuki GS1000 to restore then look no further – THIS ONE COULD BE YOURS!!!
We are listing this bike as a trade clearance item with a super low WINTER MADNESS SALE starting price and LOW RESERVE so get bidding and get this project started.......Ask your self the question “CAN I AFFORD NOT TO BID?”

Please call MARK RUSHTON or NEIL WILSON or on 01782 861100 ext 244 or 241 who will be more than happy to answer any questions you have.
