1983 GS750E
« on: Jul 11, 2015, 12:34:09 »
Traded my little cafe racer for this two days ago. Wanted a bigger engine and a passenger seat for the wife. A little newer than I would've like but the 80s styling is growing on me. Wanting to clean it up and make it look like a vintage yoshimura bike they built back then. Anyway here's the pictures. I hope to have this as my first documented build of any sort.







Here's what I hope the end result will be



And finally what I traded for it

Progress update. Putting katana wheels on it to match the 41mm forks. Also tracked down a vintage yoshimura exhaust that almost fits perfectly. Also got another tail since mine is cracked and a katana front fender.

Great bike but I think you should keep the 16" front. That setup was cool.

Got the katana wheels mounted. The rear ended up being a larger pain in the ass than I imagined. Had to make spacers, shorten the chain, and still need to make a caliper stay that doesn't hit the tire. Also got my new tail mounted, the original had some cracks and a missing chunk in the liscense plate area.
