The 1979 Suzuki GS1000 is a classic motorcycle that was first introduced in the late 1970s. It was considered one of the most powerful and technologically advanced motorcycles of its time. The GS1000 was powered by a 997cc, air-cooled, inline-four engine that produced 90 horsepower and could reach a top speed of over 130 mph. The bike featured a sleek, muscular design, with a distinctive teardrop-shaped gas tank and a large, comfortable seat.

The GS1000 was also equipped with a range of advanced features, such as a six-speed transmission, disc brakes in the front and rear, and an anti-dive system that improved handling and stability during hard braking. Today, the GS1000 remains a highly sought-after classic motorcycle for collectors and enthusiasts alike.

This example is VIN: GS1000108104, Engine #: GS1000124967. The seller purchased this motorcycle from Kaplan Cycles in July of 2022.

After purchasing this example, the seller had the following done: gas tank relined at GTL Advantage, rebuilt the carburetors, replaced the valve cover gasket, installed new Dynatec electronic ignition, new ignition coils and plug wires, and replaced the seat with a reproduction seat. The seller has included documents and receipts for the work done.
