Judging Class - 1980's 10 months 2 weeks ago #49763

1982 XL500R bought new in Holland by a teenage woman and brought to Australia when she emigrated in the mid 1990's. Soon after arrival here she bought a Harley to enjoy the wide open roads. The XL500 became a farm bike and I bought it from her around 2010 in exceptionally poor condition. It took me a few years to start the restoration which was completed in January 2015 in time for the first Canberra Rally. No longer used on dirt, but rides very well on the roads around SEQ.

1980 Suzuki GS850G
I've had it about two years. I've done a top end refresh, full carb rebuild and new exhausts. She runs like a dream!
Cosmetically, engine tidy-up including new paint and polished the side covers, stripped, polished and re-coated the forks, new seat cover. She's still got a few battle scars but she passes the 3m test.

Suzuki GSX1100E - built 2/80. Purchased (rescued) around 2 years ago from a back shed in a Perth suburb. Been locked away for nearly 7 years prior. Full carby rebuild and re-jet to suit the 4-1 pipe, many hours of refurbishing & restoring plus NOS parts to bring back the originality. A dream to ride!

Hi this is a 1980 xl500s I picked up in Canada whilst living there in 2018.
The guy I bought it off was into old Suzuki's and I guess didn't know it was meant to be red.
He had done the paintwork already when I bought it, I did a solid work over of it and generally tidied it up a bit. Still use it as a run around.

1985 Honda CH250 SL (Superleggera)
Custom Exhaust, Ported head, Rejetted, Modified suspension both ends ,CBR900 seat.Dr Pulley lightweight sliders LED lighting.Digital speedo modified cooling etc etc.
Handles and goes like the clappers (ask certain Harley riders).
Attract attention where ever it goes, although strangely enough don't get many old timers telling me they had one just like this back in the day.

1981 Z650-D4
Full ground up restore from a $600 ebay purchase 10 years ago. It was a total basket case which had sat outside for the previous 5 years. This was my first restore project and finally got it completed last month. Rides like a dream and makes me feel 18 again.
