time capsule gs1000

Found this hiding in a basement with a sheet over it.
8k original miles.
ridden one year and put away.
stunning original bike and one of my personal favorites
from this era.
I rebuilt the carbs and threw new tires on, oil and plugs and thats about it

Ya ballhawk, that's one good find. Hope no issues with rusty tanks or solid seat foam? Shafty too boot

Re: time capsule gs1000

Truely a lovely bike, but you'll have to change that naff hi-vis jacket to something more period correct asap! (It's only partially hidden in the second pic) :)
