Some of my bikes fit in here easier than others....

Thanks! I rebuilt the engine from the crankshaft up once, top end again just 3,000 miles ago. About 8 years ago I took it all the way down to the frame, bead blasted, repainted, and put back together with all new bearings, etc. As it sits you could ride it across the country tomorrow. Thinking about riding it to the Laguna Seca MotoGP again this coming summer.

I was thinking that was an "ES", but, those came later. Anyway, I remember Wes Cooley rockin' the "S" model.

I had a '78 GS 750 for a first bike and, then, to a '83 GS 1100E. However, my heart still desires a '82 Katana. Someday........

Thanks for the pics, "Skowinski".
