found the pics of me first bike..............

a 1979 GS550EN.

rebuilt the engine, shot blasted it, painted it black (the engine - not the bike!), polished the cases, painted disc carriers and clock case backing (window tint on clock faces!), twin spots, no mirrors or indicators (!), twin tinted back lights pics are from late 1997 (i think!!) not bad for a first attempt at doing a bike up i reckon

i want it back............:bawling

i nearly bought a new one of them back in 1981, (yep i'm a feckin old git)
put deposit down and it was on it's way, then suzuki reduced the price of the GSX750EN by £500.00, cancelled the order and bought the 750 instead, only cost me £100 more than the 550, loved the bike and did 36.000 miles on it before trading it in for a newer model, still see the 550's and think about what may have been, they were definately a lot better looking than my old 750
