A Note From The Owner

I submit my 1983 GS1100E with 24,000 miles for consideration for BOM. I've owned the bike for the past ten years. I acquired it as a basement rescue, where it sat for a number of years waiting to be turned into a drag bike.

Luckily for me, the PO lost interest. It's gone through quite a few changes over the years. Some not so pretty. Its current configuration is leaning visually, back to stock.

Since early this spring, I've installed a newer electrical harness, an R&R from an 03 GXR, new AGM battery, refurbished OEM exhaust(by me), painted to match Rifle Fairing, new front tire, and a dozen or more of normal maintenance tweaks. All work done to the bike was performed by myself. Long story short, she's a well behaved lady for her age, that I couldn't have achieved without the help of GSR's info and members.

Regards,

Chris Okon
