SOLD for $400.
Non-running 1981 GS 1100E for sale. When I had this bike for sale last year it was running fine and all good, but I left it with my younger brother to ride when I moved to Victoria and now there are a few issues with it.
- ~30,000 km
- clean, reliable, strong engine
The bad (cosmetic):
- missing one original side cover (made a cover)
- plastic housing around rear light has small broken piece (not visible)
The ugly (mechanical):
- needs new pads front and rear
- needs new fork seals
- needs new chain
- choke is not working
- needs new battery
- needs oil change
The GS bikes are known for their reliability, and there is a GS specific website that provides a ton of useful info; the site has helped me a lot as it is like a 24/7 support line. The bike ran beautifully when I rode it last September, but it was not taken care of after I moved and as a result is has been sitting for the past 8 months.
Getting it running will be as easy as fixing the choke (probaby replace it) but getting it safe and reliable again will take some work. I live in an apartment now and don't have any place to store or work on the bike to get it back to where it was, so I would just like to sell it to someone who can.
I am asking $500 and if you want to take a look, ask questions, just give me a shout via email to email@example.com.
