I bought this from a barn in Wisconsin, it had a bit of dust on it! Was last run in 2000, don't know how many previous owners or verify the odometer reading.
I have given it a clean, fitted new fork seals, braided brake hoses, caliper seals and brake pads, tyres, spark plugs, oil and air filters, oil, battery and tacho cable. The tank and side panels have been repainted, the carbs cleaned, clutch freed, points adjusted. Each original silencer has a tiny hole in it, which are difficult to see.
It now runs turbine smooth, starts easily, stops quickly and handles like a big 1970's Japanese muscle bike. V5 is in my name, Suzuki Owners Club dating certificate and 2 sets of keys. I do have a rear rack, which is pig ugly but can be included if required.
