    I've been watching this on youtube. Is a really good project! Am looking forward to the next instalment! Much prefer the new gauges compared to what you did put on there. Keep up the good work!

    UK GS550 cafe bike build

    GS550 Special - Project Stray Dog - Finished.

    I recently got a GS550 (2 in fact) and one did come with a 130 rear tire, so it can be made slightly bigger if you want. Appears to be on the same original rims too Awesome work by the way!

    1978 GS550 cafe - CHECK IT OUT!

    That is a fine looking bike!! SO many ideas of what to do for this bike! I guess I need to see what ends up being most comfortable to ride. That is more important than just the aesthetics.

    Suzuki GS550E '78

    Really liking how this bike is coming along!! I just got myself a '79 GS550! How have the new wheels come out? As much as I love the bike, wheels with spokes are something I really want to add to it!
