Bike Of The Month


1983 Suzuki GS1100E

Owner: Phillip Scholl

ID #47

A Note From The Owner...

I purchased this GS from the original owner earlier this summer. He had disassembled the engine about twelve years ago because of some cam chain noise.

The bike and parts had been stored away carefully with little attention required except for some cleaning of the parts. This bike features its original tires, drive chain and sprockets, 18,000 miles, as well as all original paint.

I have only ridden a few hundred easy miles out of respect for the old tires. There is a Lockhart oil cooler, and an early eighties Yoshimura exhaust.

This GS has been a pleasure to work on and now to ride.
