1977 GS750 Cafe Build (getting close)
« on: Dec 12, 2011, 19:52:14 »
Hey guys, just joined the forum a couple weeks ago, been looking around at all the builds on here, lot of good looking bikes. So I figured it was time to post my build. Bought the bike back in October of this year. It was not running, old gas and float bowl leaking badly. Had been sitting in a shed for the past 3 years. Less then 10,000 Miles, brought it home drained the gas, float bowl was seated incorrectly. Put fresh gas in the tank seems to run pretty good. Rode it around the neighborhood, back brake was locking up. Pulled bike back into garage and started the tare down. I have a couple of questions. I donít care for the look of the front master cylinder does anyone know of a good looking master cylinder that would fit this bike (single disk). Also, thinking of using rear sets from a gsxr. Anyone know of a different bike that the rear sets would mount better then the gsxr.  Paint sould be here in a couple of days, House of kolor Orion Siliver frame and stripe, Lapis Blue tank and seat pan. Hope to have painted around the holidays. Hope to have build done by end of April.  Thanks for any help and ideas. Enough chit chat for now.









My little helper.















As it sits now

Thanks guys, I have to say not enough suzuki's on here. I've got to get my frame all smoothed out and primed this weekend and hopfully the tank. Want to paint Christmas week (I'm off work till after the new year) , so I can start the rebuild. I'll try to get pictures posted to keep you all updated. And yes, I follow all the Suki builds, may see a great Idea.

Nice! I really like the look of your seat. Fiberglassing is always an adventure.

Agreed, not enough Suzukis.  I'm also working on a GS 750 (79 in my case).  The project is currently stalled due to lack of funds, still need an ignition and new battery and a few other odds and ends.  One of these days I'll get around to posting a build thread.  Good luck with the project.

Good luck RadioPaul!!! I got a 77 GS750 myself, but I've halted any work on it until I figure out my financial situation...Look forward to your work and I hope I can get my project going as well!!!
