    That's a good looking bike - and I dislike shafties. The seat, the bars, all highly desirable styling cues from the '70's and '80's.

    My '82 11E has snowflake wheels, as do all other '82s I've seen.

    2016 XL883L Two-tone blue and white. Almost 42 hp! Status: destroyed, now owned by the insurance company. The hole in my memory starts an hour before the accident and ends 24 hours after.

    Is that a rectangular headlight with a chrome bucket? Hard to tell from the one pic. Never seen one of those.

    Found this

    Looks like the GS750 GL was a 1 year only model for the Japan market, 1981 only?

    Hey cheers for all the input. It was definitely meant for the Japanese market it has a red light in Japanese writing on the dash that comes on at 80kph( must remove that bulb) which was there speed limit. And I'm pretty sure they had a limit on there cc rating at some stage which makes me think its a down size 850. Has a round front head light and the handle bars are super comfortable also very wide. thanks Rich ill have a read up on that info and strip the carbs down after I get another bike back together.

    Pretty neat. Looks really close to the 1980 850L I had, just with slightly more "cruiser" styling, except for the far better standard handlebars.
