I echo this statement 1 million percent. I ride an '82 GS850G. Never once let me down despite being older than I am. I love my Suzuki. 28 years old and 26,000 miles, still plenty of life left for me.
I love it because it is simple, efficient, affordable, classic good looks, bulletproof, comfortable, quiet, not a slouch in the power department, need I continue? If am in the market for a new bike in the future you can bet I'm gonna look at the big S first.
Ohh yeah, East Coast Rider, that is one SICK 1100. Keep at it your project looks fantastic.
