November 2011 Bike Of The Month
1982 Suzuki GSX1100S
Owner: Glen G.
A Note From The Owner...
This is an 1982 Australian GSX1100SXZ factory wire wheel Katana and apart from the stainless steel spokes to replace the original rusty items everything else is genuine OEM.
Apart from replacing the bearings in the steering head, front and rear wheels and swing-arm now and then this is how she left the factory in 1982 though the paint would have looked a bit better then!
I bought this Kat in 1986 and its the Keeper, it has 172,000 km on the clock and it is still a joy to ride every time.
Thank you for your time in sorting the BOM nominations, cheers.
