I always liked the G (shaft drive) models. Not too sure about the fairing and saddlebags. Would look great with a 1/4 fairing.

http://denver.craigslist.org/mcy/3657148891.html



Price Reduced from 2100

I'm reposting this add to sell my Suzuki GS1000G Sport Cruiser. I have permanently moved to Connecticut for college and don't expect that I'll be using my motorcycle anymore. I bought the motorcycle in March last year from Colorado Kawasaki in Longmont. I have the clean title.

The motorcycle has 90 HP, air cooled, is shaft driven instead of Chain (no maintenance). Runs perfectly. The dealer did a full inspection before I bought it, and replaced the front fork seals, rear tire (nearly new now), and front brakes.

With those 90 horses I've managed 0-60 in about 5 seconds, if that is useful for you.

Bike comes with the 3 rear boxes (saddle bags, and a large "trunk") that you see in the picture. Has only 33,xxx miles on it, and these bikes are known to run for a long time (over 100,000) Bike was made in 1980 (do some research before judging the age). Fuel tank is 5.7 Gallons, and the bike gets about 40 - 45 mpg (50 highway) - no exagerations on that point.
Bike also has cruising footrests up front for more comfortable highway driving.

The only part of the bike that is showing it's age is the saddle. It's good and will go for a while yet, it will need to be reupholsted in the next year or so. Right now it has a few cracks in the material (looks like leather, but I'm not entirely sure what it is).

The bike will be viewable march 10th - march 17th as I'll be back for spring break then.
Offers are welcome, this needs to go by march 17th.

KBB value starts at 1600 for "Fair" condition, and 2300 for "good" condition.

email and serious enquiries only please.

If you don't know about them these old GS's they are absolutely bullet proof motors and many believe the 800 was the best of the bunch. They'll run forever if you replace the regulator/rectifier and keep the carbs clean.

the oem charging system will fail eventually

I paid $895 for mine and replaced the charging system with Electrosport pieces. It was a good runner but I still replaced every o-ring in all four carbs, rebuilt the vacuum petcock, and replaced the intake manifold o-rings.

The roller bearing bottom end is bomb proof and still used in drag race motors.

paid $895, sold for $1850

Not sure he's a jerk, but I'd be weary of a seller who boasts of 0-60 times and also claims the vehicle is "no maintenance."

And one claim in particular is singled out as "no exaggeration"...

Which immediately throws the rest of his claims into doubt.

You mean THIS TIME you're not lying? Oh, OK.

sure is!

But the first motor was the high compression 628 (10.5:1) that Jeff Grace built.
When I had him build the 2nd one just before Saul got the bike, it went back to bone stock displacement and compression.

Clean 1996 KTM 620 RXC $1800

For those of us who like the KTM White look.



Runs great lots of power!!!. I wouldnt be selling it but I'm leaving for basic training in a couple weeks and won't be needing it. Its got newish tires and stator. After market mikuni carb tuned by SMR in Santa fe. 85xx miles on the bike. All lights work. Bike starts up and runs everytime. No damage, has never been laid down on pavement to my knowledge. This is definitely more of an offroad bike that is street legal vs the newer dual sports which are heavy and less capable offroad. I have the clean title and original owners manual. All serious offers considered but please no low balling. More pictures available upon request.

Chics dig it.



So many people begin such adverts by saying they hate to part with something...and this is one. Seriously this bike is awesome. 5000 miles when I bought it last July, probably has 10k now...it's in storage in Taos at the moment so I can't check. Homemade suitcase panniers, aftermarket headlight (comes with original); runs great. The petcock broke so I put a simple inline cutoff on it, you'll need to remember to shut it off when you get off. Drove it from Taos to Yellowstone and back last summer without any problems. Tires are bald, needs a new set, and one of the rear turn signals is gone. I'm going to pick it up in Taos and drive it back to Santa Fe in the next few days so if your up North drop me a line soon before I bring it down. Full face helmet comes with. Never wrecked or really taken off road, just a lot of dirt road blasting. Firm on price, I really don't want to sell it and I have time plus there can't be another of these out there with around 10k.. Cheers, Trey. Oh and I have a repair manual I can e-mail.
