  • For Sale 1981 Suzuki GS550M Katana - in bits

    Not quite a bike so I guess it comes under parts. Selling the bike from this thread.

    Due to work and family commitments I just don't have the time for this. If anyone is interested in any parts, the whole shebang or what have you I am open to offers.

    In a nut shell:

    GS550M frame part way through being converted for SV1000 front and rear running gear
    SV1000 rear swing arm modified to fit narrow pivot point
    SV1000 front end with GSXR600 clip ons (still have original risers too)
    GS550 engine - bottom end built, GS650 top end complete but needs some work
    All panels are around, including original tank full of previous owners bog and a spare tank which appears much better

    There is a lot of work required to make this a running bike, so it would suit either a complete nut job who wanted to finish what I started or someone who wants some cheap parts to learn about engines and bike bits.

    The SV1000 front forks have some corrosion showing through the chrome so I'll have them re-chromed before they move on.

    Pictures in the thread, if anyone is interested in any thing in particular let me know an I'll provide more details.
