Couple Of Gs's

Hey everyone, just wanted to start a build thread that included both my GS's, the first one is a 1979 GS550L
When I got it:


After ditching the wheelbarrow bars for the drag bars and mocking up the "Brat" seat pan


All I'll have left is to get different pods that are shorter so I can put the side covers back on. I didn't want to relocate the wiring and remove the side covers and have the empty triangle look.. Not really appealing to me but that's my opinion. Also need to figure out why its sputtering at 6k and won't rev past 6k with load on the bike :-/

Next is my newest addition, a 1981 GS750E, it's mostly original with the exception of filters and an aftermarket start button and inline fuel pump. Snatched it up for $200, going to start with a good carb cleaning and get the rust out of the tank. Clubman bars, either cafe or brat seat, some nice oval pods and then sell it.

Pulled the carbs apart last night and they are a lot cleaner then I thought they would be judging by the amount of crap in the tank! The bike only has pods and stock exhaust and its running 130 mains, seems a bit to big but we'll see what happens when its put back together.

Got the paint stripped off the tank of the 750 where it was dented.

Got the bondo on the smaller dent, still gotta pull out the larger dent and fill it.
