GS550E - your new ride for Summer ! SOLD (1980)
Bike is in a quite tidy condition overall given it is 38 years old. Definitely would describe as unrestored but in perfectly acceptable condition for use as is, which some fully restored bikes never seem to enjoy. It has a Motad 4-1 exhaust system. I bought the bike on a whim quite local to me but am selling to give me a bit of room in an otherwise full of other bike's garage. The previous owner to me had Dynatek electronic ignition and new rear shock absorbers fitted, originals are present though. Also, as the saddle cover fitted is unsightly, to say the least, there is a tailored pattern cover to replace it.
When I bought it last November she started easy and ran smoothly, albeit with a bit of uneveness which it was suggested is due to original air box having been replaced with an individual gauze filter on each carburettor.
MOT expired August 9 but with each of last two having had no advisory points and little additional miles would not expect any bother passing next one. Recorded mileage is 28,500.
With little attention, this could be a great everyday ride, attracting compliments from those who remembered them when they were still in production, or maybe owned one.
It is in Llandudno in North Wales !
1 July update - After little bit of attention I had the bike started and running,and took on a short ride. It will definitely benefit from some love but was rolling nicely.
16 July - To person DK that enquired yesterday- I tried to respond but email address keeps returning as unknown ! Suggest a retry or leave a number !
