An initial diversification into 4 wheeled transport was curtailed by WW2 but after the war Japan had a need for cheap reliable transport so Suzuki, like a lot of others around the world, began to produce clip-on engines for pushbikes. These proved to be an immediate success and soon they were making full motorcycles and by the early 60s were second only to Honda in numbers of two-wheelers manufactured. Better known for their two strokes Suzuki joined the four stroke revolution in 1977 with the GS750, a bike that matched European standards of handling but with Japanese build quality and performance levels. A year later the full 1000cc version was launched setting a new benchmark in the superbike division. This 1979 GS1000EN has been part of a large private collection of 70s classics and has been stored in a heated garage for a number of years. It has been subject to an authentic restoration keeping many of its original hard to find features such as the air rear shocks and Suzuki 'DGM33922S' exhaust, the mirrors even have the protective film still in on! The engine turns over and gears select but the bike will need a good recommissioning, carb clean, tank clean, brakes overhaul and a new battery etc, but all the expensive hard to source features are in place.
