    Post From Dust to Glory: Restoration of GS500

    Suzuki GS500
    Model: 1992 Police Auction

    Found it standing on the mechanic's workshop on one of my visits. It was about six months ago. The first look of the bike made t clear that there was no major damage to the bike, which is not very usual for auctioned bikes from the era. So the first look made its impression on me that this could be one perfect bike for the restoration.
    Moreover, the bike had recently been in use with someone so obviously it had not been standing in the dark for too long, another plus.
    Here is how it looked at first:

    Thanks bro, you got the eye of the beholder. GS like blue one are quite rare considering the overall quality.
