    Default At last!!

    IMG_20211004_140606.jpg. So After who knows how many years, I took my 83 GS750E for a shake down ride. Engine and tranny are
    great. All electricals working. I still have the old front brake pads in and the brakes are HORRIBLE. EBC pads in my future. No leaks of
    any kind. I'm super happy so far.

    It seems like you had so much fun, are you planning to upgrade this classic ride?

    I've already got Sonic springs on the way. Eventually I'm going to get an IKON shock. Other than that, new tires.

    Congrats mad, looks like you did a great job...Naw, It's a classic the way it is, it should stay that way. Wouldn't change a thing that couldn't easily be put right back to OEM. If you want something to ride that performs, stops, handles like a newer modern bike, Get a newer more modern bike...Just my opinion.

    Awesome bike! Can't go wrong with EBC pads.

    I agree with keeping it mostly stock. It does have aftermarket clip ons. I already have a ZX14 for raising Hell.
    I was working for Yamaha when the GS came out. There was a Honda/Suzuki dealer across the street. 2 bikes came out that
    I instantly fell in love with. This one and the 86 VFR750. Ended up owning both of them.
