A 1979 GS1000E 998CC Four-Cylinder Superbike with 62693 miles from new.


Developed after the success of the two-stroke 750cc and aimed at the Kawasaki Z1 market

Better handling bike than its competitors, the GS was capable of over 120mph. With chain drive and a tubular steel cradle frame along with air and oil dampened front forks.


With the GS1000E being only slightly heavier than its brother the 750 that in its self was an achievement, By lengthening the stroke the cylinder displacement was enlarged, Being chain driven and having chrome exhausts running down each side from the four cylinder engine. Having the noticeable change of the fuel tank and rear end the Suzuki GS1000E was born. Having a solid swing arm, solid fork pipes, solid steering head support and a solid lightweight chassis, Air adjustable fork(dual-rate coil springs remain) and with adjustable damper rear shock absorbers. With having a restoration some years earlier the paintworks presents uniformed and glossy as expected.


This four cylinder is something special, Touching nearly 140mph back in the seventies with a bike of this magnitude was nothing short of remarkable, With 26mm carburettors and miscellaneous decals along with various covers this engine was actually lighter than its brother the 750, With the primary gear set  being helical along with a racing type(square-plate) cam chain, With compression @ 9:2.1 and running the self adjusting can chain tensioner. 


With new Avon Road rider 19 inch tyres front and rear over silver and grey alloy wheels in immaculate condition, Along with calliper disc brakes front and rear fitted to bring you to a controlled and safe stop.


With being subject to restoration and more recently a full engine strip down and re-build this is a well presented example, With the paintwork gleaming and chrome brightworks sparkling this truly is one to add to the collection. With first being registered on the 25th July 1979 and remaining within the UK all it’s life. This is a true superbike from the seventies taking on Yamaha and Kawasaki standing head and shoulders above them, Its simple everyday use made it the bike to own. With being one of the comfiest bikes around at the time to ride. This is one stupendous motorcycle and will sit proud in any Suzuki fanatics collection.
