Default 1977 Suzuki GT185

This is my 1977 Suzuki GT185, which I got about a 7 years ago off a guy from work. It was handed down to him from his dad who had it from new. It did about 5500 miles before being taken off the road about 25 years ago and covered in wax oil to preserve it.

At the time I only had a small shed for a workshop and was looking for a small project when this came up. I stripped it down and rebuilt it and it has sat in my garage ever since.

Unfortunately, I don’t have my bike licence so have never ridden it!!! As I am not really a bike man, I don’t know much else about it or what its worth.

hi Richie,

that's a very tidy bike you have there, I prefer that modle to the later ones with the skinny seat & tank

My brother had one of those about 20 years back & I can tell you they are pretty nippy for what they are
