News: "We ride because we see long lines of cars and trucks, creeping along toward another day, a crummy one just like yesterday. We ride by, glance into those cars and trucks and can't imagine being one of THEM, when we could be, we ARE, one of us." - Maynard Hershon, Citybike, 9/05

Who says so...!?

« on: April 29, 2013, 11:00:16 AM »

Over the winter I stumbled upon a 1983 Suzuki GS650 L and bought it cheap.
I thought I could R &R it and ride it a bit and then sell it for a little profit...
So far the project is on budget but off schedule ...but I am getting close to having it ready...

This past weekend I R &Rd the brake system - removing calipers, and cleaning them and the master cyulinder and bleeding the brake lines out ...these may have never been done before...the bike is 30+ with 759 original miles on it and has been in storage for years and years...

Take a look at this brake fluid that came out -- yes it seperated in the vacuum catch container by specific weight (sludge)

I hope you put it back in.  To keep the "classic" original.   rotflmao
