A Note From The Owner

I am the original owner of this 1981 GS850L Suzuki. I rode the bike daily for 6 years before parking it in my storage shed and forgetting about it.

After being stored for 28 years, it was a shame to see the way it looked. The fuel tank was rusted. The brakes were seized. There was a lot of rust and corrosion all over the bike.

After many, many hours of work, it looks and runs like new again. It's nice to be back on the road.
