1982 Suzuki GSX750E from United States of America

Summary:

It runs very fast! It's a keeper

Faults:

The only thing I have done was to have it repainted, because the pin striping was peeling off, and the paint on the front fender was cracking and flaking.

General Comments:

The chrome was in mint condition when purchased, with the original exhaust in show room condition. Other than the original paint, the rest of the bike looks to be brand new.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes

1980 Suzuki GSX750E from Norway

Summary:

Simple, reliable and with old-school charisma

Faults:

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.

General Comments:

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.

It's 2013 now, and the bike has 81700 km on the odometer. Since last time I wrote about the bike, I have changed the chain and sprockets. Apart from that, only oil and filter changes...
