RESERVE REDUCED

The Suzuki Motor Co. was established in 1909 by Michio Suzuki to produce machinery for the cotton industry. An initial diversification into 4-wheeled transport was curtailed by WW2 but after the war Japan had a need for cheap reliable transport so Suzuki, like a lot of others around the world, began to produce clip-on engines for pushbikes. Better known for their two strokes in 1977 Suzuki joined the four-stroke revolution with the GS750, a bike that matched European standards of handling but with Japanese build quality and performance levels. The GSX range appeared in the early 1980s matching together Suzuki's bulletproof bottom end with 4 valves per cylinder. The legendary GSX1100 was one of the most powerful bikes of the day and became the starting point for many 'streetfighter' and drag race specials.

This rare unmodified GSX1100E musclebike is the ultimate expression of Suzukis air cooled 4 stroke range before they moved onto oil and then water cooling. Whilst a powerful bike in its day, there was plenty of scope left for tuning in its over-engineered motor so very few have survived in standard trim. This bike has been part of a private collection for a while and is only being sold to make space in the vendors garage. Run recently (see video) it may need a new battery before use and whilst fitted with a Cobra 4 into 1, it comes with a genuine and rare black chrome 4 into 2 exhaust system. Also included are 20 old MOTs, some receipts, a magazine featuring the model, an MOT until August this year and a current V5C.
