    1978 GS1000 Restomod

    It's been awhile since my last build on DTT. A few years ago I drove to Ann Arbor and I picked up a '78 GS1000 in 7/10 shape with some nice modifications already done to it but it wasn't my plan to stop there. For years, I have been infatuated with Singer Vehicle Designs rendition of the Porsche...

    1979 Suzuki GS750N - Slow Restoration

    Yesterday I came across a freshly posted CL ad advertising a 1979 Suzuki GS750N. Not knowing much about the Suzuki's, I e-mailed the guy asking if I could look at it, and got to work researching.
