1980 Suzuki GSX750E
Simple, reliable and with old-school charisma
The voltage regulator had to be changed. It's an oil leak from the camchain tensioner.
The front forks has to undergo service, as they are far too soft.
The bike runs just fine, with few noises from the engine, despite its 30 years of age. It has a certain patina, and I suspect that for example Hondas often look fresh longer.
Anyway, I like the bike a lot. It has got an upright riding position and runs quite well to be a 79 hp 750 cc from 1980.
I have owned a CB 1100 F, which was relatively similar, and compared to that one, the Suzuki also gives a good overall impression so far. I hope to keep it for a long time.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Don't Know
