Description

Additional photos of this 1983 Suzuki GS1100E are available here for your perusal.

In the early 80s, Suzuki knocked off the CBX as the superbike du jour. The Suzuki GS1100E came into the market and instantly became the bike of choice for the power hungry. American press mags constantly raved about not just the power, but also the surprising handling abilities for such a large bike.

In years prior, the GS series was designed to be an all-around standard. In 1982, Suzuki broke up the biggest GS with different models like the E and the G.

The G became a lazy man’s tourer, which freed the E from its constraints. It evolved into king of the dragstrip. The engine got some extra work, and cosmetics were slightly tweaked, leading to a bike more similar to the early Katana’s, and an engine that produced over 100 horsepower and nearly 70 foot-pounds of torque.

The seller of this example (VIN: JS1GU73A8D2104286, Engine #: GS110X-164597) acquired it eight months ago from a private party in Huntington Beach, California.

Since then he has covered approximately 200 miles. The odometer now shows 44,513 miles.

During his ownership, the seller had the oil changed and installed new front brake lines.

Modifications:
Removed anti-dive, steel braided front brake lines.

Superbike grips.

New front master cylinder.

All engine exterior bolts replaced with stainless steel units.

ProGrip tank protector.

The tires are from 2014.

Cosmetic Blemishes:
There are minor scratches and wear throughout commensurate with the age and mileage. Photos of all known cosmetic blemishes are included in the album up top.



Mechanical Issues:
The seller notes that the temperature gauge needle jumps around. The sale includes a second set of complete gauges.

The seller removed the center stand, it is included with the sale.

The side covers have some broken tabs. The seller purchased new replacements that need to be painted to match. “I was going to restore the bike but I have too many projects.” Now he needs space, so he’s listed this GS with no reserve.

The sale includes the owner’s manual, service manual, two keys (one original, one aftermarket), and some spare parts.



Currently located at our facility in Santa Monica, California (please make an appointment for an inspection), this Suzuki is offered on a clean California title with registration current through November 2021.
