Coming to us from a long term friend, a very well respected person in the M/c world round here for his engineering skills,is this first year of production Suzuki GS Thou and it is just….well, lovely! A really nice example of Suzuki’s all conquering late 70s Super bike, which apart from the all black wheels,( we do have a set of non painted ones that can be available by separate negotiation), Hagon rear shocks, braided brake lines and progressive rate front fork springs (not that you can see them), is pretty well standard. Not restored by our friend but maintained and improved by him, he had been looking for a bike to convert into a Wes Cooley rep but when this one arrived after buying it blind, it was just to good to do that too so he set about making it ride 100%, no sooner he accomplished that ? Yep, you guessed it, a Wes Cooley rep came up for sale with all the right bits on so he bought that one as well !! Now the problem of space meant he just couldn’t keep both so hence why we are now the proud owners of one of the nicest early GS1000s on the market today. No its not cheap, nor is it over priced for a “turn key” 43 year old Classic Suzuki and lets face it, for some reason if it had Kawasaki written on the tank and in this condition, it would be £10K more, figure that!
