1974 Suzuki GT185: Sister Power
« on: Nov 21, 2018, 10:31:24 »
Well, this will be an honest attempt at a restoration. A good friend offered it exchange for some work as a bike for my wife or my daughters. I think that’s the perfect future for this little scoot. I will love getting my two girls on this bike.  I know nothing of 2 stroke wizardry, so there will be quite the learning curve.

It’s pretty much complete, with compression. There’s some rust and the forks are bent, but overall I think it’s in great shape and it’s the perfect restoration candidate.

Bombproof!  Bet it runs with a battery and clean carbs.  Make sure the oil injectors work - hopefully the oil is still fluid.  Don't put any compressed air in the oil lines, there are fragile check valves!!!
