A nice, unmolested 1980 Suzuki GS550E that's been in a garage for 20 years.  Runs like new.  I'm going to switch to lower bars and ride it for awhile before I decide what, if any, kind of build it will become.

Gorgeous. They are great bikes, and super comfortable with low bars. The 550 I had for a while had some 7/8" Pro-Taper MX style bars that felt great on there. I'd just check the charging system and put some miles on her!

 Of course it's your bike to do with what you will. My father had one (full on Harley guy, but took it in a trade) and I always dreamed of finding it. They are amazing bikes, just felt more sophisticated than a Honda or other 550's I'd ridden. That is sooooo complete and nice, I wouldn't touch a thing and enjoy it...

I have an 2012, the seat sucks, I changed mine and got a pretty price for the stocker at the swap meet. I installed lower bars and megaphone pipes and ride the heck out of it. Really enjoyable bike. The only reason I'd get rid of it would be to get the new 1200. I upgraded to Hagon and progressive suspension and she handles well. Not fast, but nobody really runs away from me. I really like the nostalgia look, especially the fenders. I put a low profile taillight that cleans up the space ship look, smaller turn signals and lower mirrors. A short wind screen. Did I say I really like the bike? Light, quick handling, proper looking, what's not to like???

I will probably leave mine as is, for a while anyway. Seat is comfy for me and the handlebar position is comfortable also. In the future I might put my leftover Thruxton seat on it along with some "M" bars and round chrome bar end mirrors. I already have a slightly modified Thruxton as my British cafe racer, so this Bonnie can just be my cruiser.

2017 RNineT Pure with a few mods:


Also, I'll throw in my 2001 Bonneville, with a lot of mods.  Weighs about 25 lbs less than stock.  Pretty fast for a 790:

Dude, great looking bikes.  Where did you get the Bonneville seat?  It's a beauty.
