I've ordered a set of beautifully restored carburetors for the old Suzuki from a person in England who offers them. I will send my old carbs in exchange. The new set will have many chromed parts. Their cost is surprisingly reasonable.



At the same time, I am sending off my speedo, tach, and water temp gauge to a gentleman in this country who specializes in motorcycle instrument restoration...

Me too.  I love seeing old bikes restored.  It's one of my favorite parts of belonging to bike forums.  I know you are parting out the work John but there are some extremely talented people out there.  There is a gentleman on the VFR forum that broke down an 80's 500 that was abused and neglected, replaced with OEM where he could, fabricated some parts and used aftermarket to improve areas like suspension.  It was just drop dead gorgeous when he finished.

Good luck bringing that Suzuki back John, it's a pretty neat looking bike by any measure.

How is your project coming along?

Not much actual advancement as far as tinkering on the bike goes, mostly due to it being too cold to work in the garage for any length of time, but that will change very soon.

I've been feverishly buying stuff for the bike, however, and have accumulated a nice little pile of new and shiny stuff for it. You're looking at about $2000 right there....

I just bought a 1hp, 8 inch, buffer to polish as much of the bike's aluminum as I can. It was supposed to arrive today, but I haven't seen it yet.

I was glad to hear you say (elsewhere) that the bike WILL NOT be a garage/parade queen, and even after all the time,effort and money, that you intend to ride the wheels off of it. Kudos!

It looks like itís coming right along nicely.  Always a joy to do that and see what looks like a brand new motorcycle in the end.  Great stuff, and keep us posted as things progress.

JB, have you seen this video?:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mRSUxPlMRwo

They are saying they have made $13k on the last Suzuki they sold and are expecting up to $15k for this one.  Is that what you've discovered when you were looking?
