GS 850 G '79

GS 850 G '79

Here's more Suzuki GS850G info.
1979 Suzuki GS850G

Owner: Kevin Langley, England

Comments: “Couple of pictures of my 1979 Suzuki GS850. Bought June 2004 when imported to UK from Italy. Had what appears to be a genuine 22,150 km (13,650 miles) on the clock. Now covered about 17,000 miles.

The photographs were taken at The Ace Cafe, London, a 70's weekend (July 17th 2004.) I am the bloke with no hair in the second one. This was the only 70's GS I saw there.

The GS850 is a bit like me, getting on a bit, a bit overweight and couldn't really cut it on track days.

Had to do a few bits to it. New tyres, ignition system, replacement 4 into 2 Jama pipes — as close to the original look I can get without spending a small fortune. New brake lines.

It's big, heavy, doesn't turn heads like the 1980 Triumph Bonneville did that I had for four years earlier. It is however, smooth, very convenient shaft driven, reliable — covered more miles on it already than I did on the Bonneville.

It's now got a 1980's chrome rack, heated grips (they are really good). Thinking of putting a GPZ style bikini fairing on it, but can't make my mind up...”

1970 Suzuki T350-II Rebel

Owner: Allen Dixon,

Comments: “Hi, I send some pictures of my '70 T350 Rebel in absolutely mint condition.

I had one new in April 1970, same colour.

I have a fine collection of Japanese classics e.g. CB750, '69 H1, '72 H2, '74 Suzuki GT750L, '86 Kawa GPZ900R Ninja etc. All are mint with toolkits, riders manuals and sales brochures.

I also have an extensive range of brochures for many Jap bikes.”

Here are before and after pictures of Heloed's '62 Suzuki twin. It was an modern bike with hydraulic brakes front and rear. As the owner tells in the text hereby, the front brake activated the front bike as well.
1962 Suzuki TA250

Owner: Delsemme Helmoed,
Lichtaart /Kasterlee, Belgium

Comments: “I always wanted to be a little different than the other restorers and that's why I'd decided to start with the most difficult in the field of restoring a motorcycle: a Japanese motorcycle from the sixties. This because finding parts was a true challenge.

A Honda was my first thought but my love for the Suzuki motorcycle was so great that I must and should restore an old Suzuki oldtimer.

A Suzuki oldtimer from pre-1965 isn't that easy to find. It so happened that a guy from the Belgian telephone company Belgacom phoned to me with the question if I was interested in buying some old Suzuki motorcycles. I had said to some of my friends that I was searching for an old Suzuki. It was because of that mouth to mouth talk this guy got my telephone number.

As a repairer of telephone lines this guy had discovered by accident two Suzuki motorcycles in a client's salvage. These motorcycles were a Suzuki TA 250 form 1962 and a TA 150, also from the sixties; both in very bad condition and not complete.

The TA 150 is extremely rare here in Belgium and this one was only 50% complete. I never could make it complete.

The TA 250 was worth the challenge and so I went looking for the missing parts. First I pulled the motor to pieces and controlled them. A complete crank-shaft, revise, pistons, bearings and seals were necessary.

I brought the crank-shaft to a revise company. The bearings and seals I found by a friend that also collects Suzuki. This guy had once bought parts of a Suzuki store auction from a motorcycle store that went bankrupt. There I found some new parts for the TA250 like the bearings and seals. The motor gets horizontal pulled in pieces and the crankshaft has 4 bearings on it. It was a fine kind of technique, better than the Honda CB77 from the '60 that I once restored.

Once the motor was rebuilt again I went loose in the brake system. It was a progressive technique which if you push in the rear brake pedal also the front brake worked. So this front brake got oil pressure from the masterbrakecylinder together with the rear break on the rear brake pedal. The proportion was ± 20% of the rear brake pressure that went to the front brake.

The correct brake cylinder rubbers weren't available so I placed a cylinders leave in the main brake cylinders, that way I could use the existing rubbers from a car store. The brake fuel had also affect the whole cylinder wall from the mainbrakecylinder with rust. That's why I had a perfect new pump back because of the new sleeve. A thin cylinders leave was also placed in the wheel brake cylinders for replacing the wall with rust.

After the brakes and the motor were in order, I started with repairing the sheet-iron frame and welding new iron sheets in the mud-guards, these were also damaged by rust.

Afterwards came the usual lacquered by rust ware and electric wiring that I forged again with new wire off course.

After I assembled everything and rebuilding the motorcycle further it became time for the first test ride. Electric starter and kick starter were present. The electric starter was a dynastart were the dynamo also served for starter and this by a start relais. So fuel tab open, wait a few seconds until the cleaned carburettors were filled, choke on and after ± 3sec the motor turned by first kick.

A beautiful deep powerful sound with a typical 2-stroke sound, which you can count the beating of the number of revolutions, so exact was the engine.

Okay, ready for the ride now: motor in gear, lose clutch and there we go. What still reminds me is the very strong tractive power in this lowest number of revolutions and this in every gear. It was just like driving a 4-stroke, so powerful was this one. It also had to do with the fact that it has a long stroke crank-shaft and a very small size of cornet (piston).

The motor was very silent what concern piston rings which is not always the case with Suzuki. But the TA 250 was very silent and had also little vibrations. The brakes did their job but I found it yet a strange feeling when I came at a dirty roadway again and the front brake also collaborate. You had no ABS so it could happen that you have to be attention that you didn't push in the rear brake too hard.

In spite of this disadvantage - what properly suppose to be a progressive technique — the motorcycle stopped perfect at normal circumstances.

The TA 250 was a motorcycle which I miss very, very much. Yes, I've sold it in a unguarded moment when I needed money to buy a new car. It was my biggest mistake. During several years I restored many other motorcycles, but the TA 250 is like a lost child, I still miss him so.”
