Thanks...it does look a bit different from when I got it.
The GS1000 never had an oil cooler, but later GS1100E models had small ones from factory.

Various phases of rebirth.....

Nicely done. Brings back memories of the GS1000S I rebuilt back in 1996.
Must admit it's still one of my favorite bikes that I have had. They got the seat and ergonomics just right for a 6'2" rider.
I also went with the later alloy swingarm and a decent set of shocks.
Maybe I will go looking for another one for my old age.
Got to be more comfortable than my ex race T500 that is my current road bike.

Thanks :up:

I had one just like this (black/white stripe) back in 82-84. It was my first big bore bike. I have never kept anything under 1000cc in the garage as a keeper since.....4 stroke that is :lol:
I was bored with the Hayabusa and wanted to go back and relive my youth to some degree....

First ride of the year on the GS....first day in over 6 months that the temp made it to 80 degrees....
6 months of winter has been enough.....time to get into the sunshine.
Fired up first push of the button near instantly

Sweet. Now I must get rid of the Dunstall because I feel compelled to swap the wheels back to wire spokes like that bike. What size are the rims on the GS? Not that I want to know, but in case someone else does.... :oops: :roll: :lol:

Thats a lovely looking bike! Nice colour too. I like the subtle but not outrageous mods.

I had a very hard time keeping it subtle, but I wanted a bike with wire wheels and a (almost factory) look... :mrgreen:

I'd say you succeeded well! I'm no rivet counter, but it does sometimes seem a shame to lose the period look. Yours has kept that period look whilst being sensibly updated for modern use.

Bike is now for sale on craigslist.

https://chicago.craigslist.org/nwi/mcy/ ... 34428.html

I have another GS1000 that needs attention, and I don't need two.....
Plus I might be buying another bike this weekend, so I really need to get rid of one... :cry:

Decided to keep the bike after I had it on Craigslist for two weeks.....
......and took it to see if I finally had my carbs dialed in as close as possible.

They were.... :mrgreen:
