| 1979 Suzuki GS550L
Owner: Stefan Wolf,
Lower Saxony, Germany
Comments: “To help you keep your great site living i decided to show up some pictures of my Suzi.
It's a Suzuki GS550 L 1979 — one of those rare first ones, build on a chopped E frame. It has a 543cc inline-four with maximum power of 35 kW at 9,200 rpm, six gears and theoretic maximum speed of 180 km/h.
I found this sleeping beauty after it has been forgotten in a garage for six years. I bought it for a nickel and a dime and rebuild it about 12 months.
It says GS550T on the side covers but it is a L model. I have just placed GS550L badges on the side covers because at that time I did not have the original L logos.
The engine hasn't been touched at all, it is still in very good shape! The bike is almost in original condition. So I hope, you'll like it - anyway I do!”
Here's more Suzuki GS info.
There's no separate page yet for the GS550L. Please tell me everything you know about this Suzuki model.
| 2000 Suzuki GSX1200 Inazuma
Owner: Tony Åström, Sweden
Comments: “Hallo! I have a '00 Suzuki GSX 1200. It was tested in the German bike magazine Motorrad in July '98 and I got interested in this model; so i decided to buy one.
I did not find it in Sweden so in went to Germany and bought this one. It's a really nice bike; strong and good handling. In my opinion it's much nicer then the naked Bandit.”

| 2005 Suzuki GSX-R750
Owner: Bert Gamilla, Germany
Comments: “I just found your website – congratulations! It is very informative and interesting. I found some of the bikes I worked on when I started my apprenticeship at the German importer Suzuki Deutschland in 1979 as well as some of the bikes I've owned myself.
My bikes at present are: GSX-R750 K5, DR-Z400SM K5 and a '75 GT250 (still under restoration).”

1985 Suzuki GSX750EF (rebuilt)
Owner: Arto Lampinen,
Comments: “In the beginning my bike was a '85 Suzuki GSX 750 EF but I rebuilt it completely during the last winter. I bought it in October '05 and started rebuilding it almost right away.
The frame is completely rebuilt. The entire lower frame is new, I made the front fork steering angle steeper and the whole front end is from a Kawasaki ZZR1100, as is the rear wheel.
I made the rear fork wider so it could take the 180 x 17 wheel. I also had to move the drive chain line to fit the new rear wheel. It took me a few night to figure out how to do it. I welded another front sprocket onto the old one, from which I took of all its teeth. I had to cut of a piece of the frame and make a tunnel into it to create room for the chain.
The fuel tank is partly original and the front mask is Puig Fighter, with DE lights.
I made the exhaust system of stainless steel.
The air filters have been replaced with washable Pipercross foam filters. I manufactured the seat myself, except for the leather, that was sewed on by a local workshop. All the electric parts were replaced by new ones and I mounted on modern head- and rear lights.
The rebuilt bike was approved by the Finnish authority in May, I had no problems with that. After that I've ridden it thousands of kilometers with no problems.
I thank you for the enormous work you have done with your site; it's a real treasure for all Suzuki fans!”
1997 Suzuki GSF750 Bandit
Owner: William R Carton,
Ballymoney, Northern Ireland
Comments: “My Bandit 750 has 8,000 miles on it. It's black and absolutely immaculate.
My brother purchased the bike approximately three years ago. It caught his eye as soon as he saw it. I am unsure of the history of the bike before this.
He was selling it as he needed a car to travel to his employment so I jumped at the chance to own such a rare model.
I believe this model was exported out of Japan and very few of them reached Britain, even the main Suzuki web site doesn't recognize them; as if they never existed!”
Here's more Suzuki Bandit info.
There's no separate page yet for the 750 Bandit. Please tell me everything you know about this rare-in-outside-Japan model. I believe this is one of the so-called grey import models that were not officially imported by Suzuki into UK.
