G'day and Shalom from Melbourne , Oz

Postby joniacid » 25 Dec 2009, 11:55

I am a very happy GR650 owner :-)
Have always wanted a 650 twin and since the lack of garage The GR650 was the best option.
I got this baby for 1900$ and it was in a pretty bad shape with home made mufflers and all sorts of funky stuff , I have restored most to original except for the mirrors ( i like them round) and the front indicator ( i like them small :wink: ) .
Still waiting on a paint job ...cant afford one now :cry: but soon ...maybe in the new year.
So if there are any others around my area who want to ride together that would be sweet and also if theres a club going I'll be happy to join.

All the best and m always happy to see so many other jap classic bikers.

Cool set of wheels! Did a good job cleaning and restoring. I couldn't tell in the video, but do those mufflers actually have "Suzuki" stamped on them?

G'day Joniacid,

Seems a very nice restoration job.. I might be asking for some tips soon.

I just joined this forum with my GR in pieces (Adelaide).. see my post
in this section. Good to see others from Oz here, esp. as I'm new to
rebuilding top-ends.

Cheers! :)
