Nice, with a good old fashioned not stylish but comfortable seat.

Make a nice mini touring bike.

You just made a new friend sir.When I was riding offroad,I was a Honda nut.When I started riding onroad,I became a Suzuki freak.I haven't looked back.I'm not saying Honda is a bad manufacture by no means.I just prefer Suzuki.

Am I making out the badges on the side cover correctly "GS850G"? Looks to be a "shaftie".

I bought a new, black GS1000G back in about '82. I loved that bike, but stupid is what stupid does, and I sold it. My now-wife says she fell in love with me on the Suzuki. Whatever it took, I'll take it

So I broke down and brought it home tonight. Just couldn't pass it up for the price and the low miles...It's a 1979 GS850G Shaft Drive. Has triple discs too.
I'll haul it down to AZ. when I go down in a few weeks and get her going. She needs a good cleaning . Has fairly new Dunlop tires.
I had a GS850L years back, might have been a 1980 or 81...don't remember. It was a shaft Drive too. The 850L was a pretty fast bike although they are pretty heavy.
I don't know what the difference was between the "G" and "L" Models.?

It's been a long time since I had my GS1000G to recall model differences, but I would guess that the "L" had a more pronounced king/queen seat and possibly a chrome rear fender, rather than the "tail" on the "G".

Congrats on the purchase. I don't think you will regret it!

The L was there cruiser model,high pull back bars,step seat and LL forks and a more tear drop tank.The G was the standard model with a wide flat seat,lower bars and a 5.8 gal standard tank.
