1982 Suzuki GS1100E


The first Superbike


No problems this year...

And all the old ones went 70k miles or more.

General Comments:

This is my this GS1100. I have had a 1980, a 93 and this 82.

She has flatside Mikunkis with a 1200 big bore Megacycles cams, Dyna ignition, Falcone crank, undercut tranny etc.

My 1980 had similar mods, except with stock cams.

Both these machines pulled 160mph easy, & I had my newest one pulling 165MPH.

These things are reliable, fast, fun, cheap to buy & insure, & are going up in value.

BTW the stock engined 1983 began to run out of steam at about 115-120, and could not pull past 145 mph.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
