  1. Cheers mate. I’ll source a set of those.
  2. Hi folks. I’m sure I’ve seen adapters that allow the fitting of CV carbs to a early head but now can’t seem to find them anywhere. Did I imagine this or does such a thing exist. Thanks
  3. I was going to build a bit of a rough n ready bike. Had planned on putting a gsx tank on it but then this turned up on Eblag so I couldn’t pass it up, £400 a bargain I reckon, so now I’ll have to powder coat frame etc as can’t put this on a bike that isn’t near mint.
  4. Picked these little beauties up today for my GS1000 project.
  5. Probably go with powder coating for longer lasting finish.
  6. Hi folks. I’m about to get my frame, and swingarm ready for the build up of GS1000 project, what are people’s views on powder coat versus painting the frame? Obviously powder coating should be more resilient and longer lasting, but will painting be more true to original finish. Thanks in advance.
  7. Thanks for info. Have to keep looking.
  8. Can anyone confirm is the front part of the airbox on a GS1000 are different between the CV and Slide carb models. Thanks
  9. Hi mate I’d have a look at csmnl as they show that type peacock for GSX1100 1981 https://www.cmsnl.com/suzuki-gsx1100-1981-x-general-export-e01_model13758/partslist/FIG-52.html#.XKTBXBrTWhA
  10. You could fit one of these taps which should allow clearance for your carbs. Available on Eblag for £30.
  11. It’s beenbadly painted by someone previously, so I thought getting it vapour blasted would get all manky paint off prior to re painting, if I just left it after vapour blasting woul dthe finish not tarnish? Thanks
  12. Hi chaps. I’m getting my engine aqua blasted and then want to paint it silver. Does anyone know the paint code for engines, or which paint gives best/closest match. Thanks
  13. It has got the remains of the plastic trim that attaches to bottom, does shafts have that trim?
  14. Hi folks. I’ve found a seat base at back of my lock up, apologies for poor pictures but is it a base for chain drive 1000. Thanks
  15. Cheers guys, my stupidly I wasn’t looking at photos properly.
