    Yes, that's where I found the CV carb tutorial "BikeCliff's Website" -- truly a wealth of information.

    Oil thread part of this thread: I'm planning to use the 10w-50 syn that I use in my other bikes.

    There was a nice blue GS850G on FB marketplace in VT that I was looking at, spoke with the seller, then the GS1000G came up close to home. Just checked FB -- the 850 is still posted, nice blue bike with classic Bates bags. Search FB Marketplace if you're interested "Suzuki GS850G" -- should come up, in Pawlet VT. Seller said it had sat many years, then last year he had it serviced and all checked out. 10K miles, $1950.

    I don’t know why, I just want it.
    Same here, I've been looking at the V7 III Special, black with green highlights ... very nice.

    For my next Guzzi, I'll go to

    I was wondering what she dropped in there. Acorns? Quarters? ???

    Iíve got a rear wheel with Cush hub for an 83 GS750ES (I believe) kicking around if anyone wants it.

    That '79 sure looks gooooood. Almost too good. Nice to see someone kept it in good shape.

    I'm gonna throw the battery in mine this weekend although the weather doesn't look great for Sunday.

    Check out the FB listing of that GS850G, more pics, including with a Vetter fairing installed (but off now). Story goes like this: the seller told me that the bike is his father's and that he (the son, the seller) also had an identical bike that he sold last year, and finally his father gave in and said OK, sell it ... after letting it sit for 20 years. So he had it serviced last year and rode it I think he said 30 miles, and everything works.

    I got sidetracked from working on my GS, the Ohlins on my '05 Multistrada (vintage bike) started leaking, so I pulled the legs off and drove them up do Moultonborough for seals, got the bike back together yesterday. Probably next week I'll get into freeing up the front brakes on the GS.

    Inherited this little thing this morning from my father in law. Came to this country from Portugal around 1980, bought this new not realizing we had winters, put 615 miles on it, and parked it for the next 38 years. Should be a fun project. Chrome and aluminium both need some love but overall it's pretty clean.

    I love it, lots of trips planned for the summer and it’s perfect for that 1 hour cruise after work.

    It has enough power and handles well. I only wish Honda had gone with the tubeless spoked wheels.
