GS meet

Well, i took it on a ride down to Auburn Nebraska? South of Nebraska city. It was a lot of fun, I met up with 10 other GS guys and we all talked for quite a while and had lunch at a little diner down there. There were 3 other 750's in the group. I was the only one with clubman bars and bar end mirrors. Everyone liked the bike. It was the only one in the group dressed up like a cafe bike, although its only partially cafinated! It was tons of fun to ride with the guys and we are gonna do it again some time soon.

Glory Shot

Looks like Nate has finished up the lil' lemon.

The 4 into 1 exhaust is brand new and sparkles. She turned out nice. He's got some where over $1500 into her. I guess she's a screamer.

Ready For the Road

Nate is ready to ride the GS750. She looks good. Personally, I'd change out the handlebars.

The suzuki has been adopted

I had decided not to sell it but there was a couple people still interested in it. So, I ended selling to a guy with great plans to fix it up and to customize it. It helps to know that he's cool and he'll do a nice job and not just part her out.

I ended up selling it for what I had into it. Not the best business decision, but I've been on the fence and stressed out about it since I got it. I don't have room for 4 bikes.

Anyway, Nate's made some real progress in 36 hours.

I had done some initial work to it, not much. He has since determined that 1 coil is bad and had it running on 2 cylinders. Also he's fixed the tire and painted the gas tank.

I'm super jealous. Almost like you'd get when an old girlfriend is with another guy.

Here's some pics he sent.

Gonna Keep It

I've been on the fence. I did some research and found some nice custom bikes that inspired me.

Not sure which one I like better. I think this will be a fast bike so the cafe racer is appropriate however, I love this bobber.

Then there's this one.

I'd need Jason's wielding expertise to do that. His quote was around $250 plus I'd supply the tubing.
You can almost count the number of stock parts on this rigid. Forks, wheels, headers, engine and brakes.

Initial work

I promised myself I wouldn't do work on spider until at least Betty was finished, but..........
  • Drained the tank and put in some fresh gas and Sea Foam.
  • Cleaned the carbs out a little but I didn't take off the bowls ( didn't want to have to replace the gaskets) I think the floats are sticking because gas came out the overflow. Prior to my cleaning the carbs were sized. They're freed up now
  • Tried to start her. Good new: starters strong and engine not seized. Bad news: No spark.

A few interested parties on her. Best offer has been $300.00. Thought I had her sold today then the guy backed out. I'm on the fence about keeping her.

Sold the bags, tring to give away that Jammer.
