Default Re: Modified & Rejuvenated ZX-11

I picked up a low mileage (13K) 1980 Suzuki GS750E for "something to ride" while I was rebuilding the engine on my daily rider. I figured $700 for a "rat bike" was tough to argue with.



Then I realized what a great bike it still is. With a few modern suspension and brake upgrades, along with a fresh "back yard paint job", it's entirely "cosmetically respectable" now, and has become the preferred tool for long distance riding. Eminently comfortable, good handling, and with usable power even when judged by today's standards.



It does almost everything an SV650 does - some things maybe even better (ask my passenger).

Sold the Corbin that came on my FZR and bought a stock off ebay. I admit I am skinny, but the seat was not made for my butt.

I had one of those in 1979. They were good bikes. The only things I didn't like were the vibey bars and it had a really bad seat. Other than that, it was a sweet bike.

A whole buckin' funch you can be sure. With the bike purchase included, I'd guess $10-12 K.
