    Welcome to TheGSR.

    Sounds like you have done a lot of repairs and work on bike already.
    And now you found THeGSR.

    Are you saying you fabricated that seat cover.....?

    Haha, yeah I've been lurking around for a couple years just doing some light reading of the stator papers, figured now that I had the means to make this bike a little more respectable I'd finally chime in.
    As for the seat cover, yes. I found a good pleather fabric, took the old seat cover off, used it as somewhat of a pattern, made all of the individual pieces, and then had my sewing-talented sister stitch it up.

    The '83 is my favorite of the 850's. I've never seen a two tone seat like that and kinda like it.

    Welcome to the forum.
    I have tried this method to post large pics. The process breaks the pic into characters and tell me i have posted more than the site limit and the 13,000 characters, or depending on the size of the pic, shows up as characters and not a pic

    Welcome, welcome, Gn0hm, to the GS madhouse. The place isn't mad, but we inmates are: mad about Suzuki GS motorcycles. I commend you for acquiring, fixing, cleaning, and otherwise maintaining a GS850G. Yours looks much nicer than my '81, which I found in a barn several years ago and call the Ratzuki. It looked like crap then, and still does. However it starts, runs, and stops on demand, which is about all I ask of it. Have some fun here, have a cold brew, draw up a log and join the conversation. Again, Welcome. Rick
