August 2009 Bike Of The Month
1978 Suzuki GS1000E
Owner: Stefan-Jurgen Wolf
A Note From The Owner...
My name is Stefan J. Wolf, I am 48 years old and I live in Bad Bentheim, Germany.
Since 2005 I own a 1979 Suzuki GS550L which I rebuild in 2005/06. In September 2008 I discovered a forgotten 1978 GS1000E in Dortmund, Germany. I bought the bike and a lot of spare parts for bargain and started restoration the next day ;-) It took me until May 2009 to finish the work and the pictures show what it is now...
The bike is 95% original, just handlebar( Micron), blinkers (Hella), exhaust (Motad 4in1)steel brake hoses and foot pegs were modified. The paintjob and the design of the decals is exactly how the bike was delivered in 1978.
Have fun, cheers
