    It's been a really great bike. So many adventures on this thing and it's been nothing but reliable 100% of the time over the past 1.5 years. I think it's naturally warm blooded because even on a chilly day it'll start right up as I'm just turning the engine over to prime and circulate oil, not bad for a 35 year old bike.

    Not as much to go wrong on those older bikes, a lot to be said for that.

    The simplicity of these bikes are really something else. Intake, carb, 2 valves, CDI, a cylinder and an exhaust.. Minus the street legal necessities I'm not sure you can get a more raw bare bones bike than these

    I just bought this a few weeks ago. Needs a few adjustments, but it's perfect for the Nepalese Himalayas. I have new spoked wheels in the works as well as a shorter silencer and larger 11-liter tank. Otherwise, it's pretty perfect. That's Annapurna in the background. 2019_1115_10043500.jpg

    Looking forward to seeing this with the upgrades. Looks cool now, will look even better and more practical. Does it have electric start ? These bike do have my interest, especialy as the dealership is in the next town over. Not many can say that in northern Thailand.

    That is a very beautiful well preserved bike, I worked as a mechanic at a Suzuki dealership when those came out and had the pleasure of test riding them quite a bit, good on you sir for taking such good care of a truly classic bike.

    A couple of the Honda's in my stable went out for a cold November run today before the snow is supposed to fly here soon in Northern Idaho. Mid 30's F. :vardy

    I bought this Corbin Seat from the flea market forum. The stock seat forced you forward into the tank. Who designed this cruel feature? This seat although hard is much better. Corbin Seat.jpg
