1978 Suzuki GS550

engine displacement (CC): 550
fuel: gas
transmission: manual

For sale is a 1978 Suzuki Cafe Racer project

It needs quite a bit of work but has all the major components there.

Does roll and will need to be trailered

Cafe racer seat and tank aren't bolted in place - some seat posts will need to be fabricated.

What it definitely needs:
Ignition points
Carb linkage
New Battery
Replace some wiring
Speedo/Odometer
Tail Lights & Signals
Misc. other items

I bought this thing in college thinking I could restore it into a cool cafe racer and it has made it through 3 house moves with almost no work done to it. First person with 750 OBO takes it.

Compression was good when tested 3 years ago - but I don't remember the numbers.

I do have a clean title for it - but it's not in my name. It was handed over to me signed by previous owner and from the looks of the title signed over to a few people that had the same idea as me and didn't register it and kept it open. I will hand you the title and a bill of sale from me - from there it's up to you as to how to get it titled. I ran a vin report before I bought it several years ago and it does not have any leins & not reported as stolen. Worst case scenario you can get it titled as a bonded/lost title.

Will also throw in a box of misc. parts that I acquired over the past few years with the bike. Please be aware, bike is sold AS IS. Am open to trades but would prefer cash. NO PAYPAL.
