Suzuki GT80L model history

I have put some GT80L info on this page. The page is still under construction. I would be grateful of any contributions — sales brochures, magazine ads, magazine articles, pictures, specs, facts, corrections etc. Please scan the material in JPEG format (large enough that all the details are visible) and send them to me. Please tell me the source and the publication date if possible. If you send me pictures of your own bike, please follow these instructions.

1981 Suzuki year code: R
Looking very much alike the 50cc ZR50SL, Suzuki Motor Company released the custom-styled GT80L in 1981. I can show a couple of pictures of the model on this page but I haven't managed to find any specifications or other facts about this 80cc model.

Comparing the ZR50SL and GT80L pictures it looks like the models are almost identical, except for the tail light, the handlebar, cylinder head and naturally the stickers that reveal the model name.

I will fill in the blanks and put some more info of the model as soon as I find the info.
