Et celui ci ?Suzuki GS1000S
1979 Suzuki GS1000S sat in a backyard in Washington USA for six years
until Larry Pearson got his greasy hands on it. Larry is no stranger to
motorbikes. He has been custom painting and restoring bikes for years
(having 8 amazing bikes in his possession). About 14 months ago he
started his dream of turning this GS into a tribute to Wes Cooley's Superbike.
It all started with a beautiful original Yoshimura racing pipe. The
engine only had 17K miles on it, and ran like new. He did a complete
front end rebuild, all new seals, bearings. Same for the swing arm, and
the entire brake system with the addition of stainless lines.
Continental "Cont-Blyz" tires, '80 Suzuki rotors, "83 Honda CB1100F
rear shocks and front fender. Tarozzi rear sets. He cut two inches off
a 1980 GS seat foam bottom, and had it professionally upholstered. He
wanted to build this bike for 30 years after seeing Wes Cooley, Eddy
Lawson, and Freddie Spencer race Superbikes. Well, we think it was
worth waiting for. Larry we take our helmets off to you mate. (We will
post some more of Larry's creations in the following weeks).
