Newbie from Alberta, Canada
« on: Nov 28, 2017, 19:08:01 »
Just picked myself up a ‘79 Suzuki GS750, and having a great time already! Have been doing as much image searching and research as possible to get a good solid plan before jumping into action. The previous owner had started doing a bit of work to the bike, like stripping it down a bit, adding a rear frame loop and license plate bracket w/ brake light and rear signal lights, but it might end up being a bit more work for me as I will likely be changing some of that boat for function and aesthetics. More to come and further explanation when I start my build thread.

Looking forward to learning a ton, and gathering some great knowledge from the forum.

Here’s a couple pics of the bike as I purchased it and it currently sits.

Thanks Cookie! That is my 1928 Model A in the background there. She’s running an all ford power train... 351 Windsor, C4 transmission, and ford 9” rear end, 4” drop axle w/ hairpins, bias ply wide whites, and a blast to drive!

Thanks! That is a Merc in the background, but unfortunately not mine... It belongs to one of the members in our car club.  Very cool car for sure!

Here’s a few more pictures of the Merc!
