    Default Advice required for gs500e restoration

    I saw this bike with a local guy its LHR registered orignal book police autioned bike
    He is giving it away for 100,000 full & final
    I have attached the picture for an idea
    CDI unit is missing
    Please guide on following lines

    1. Are the parts available easily at competitive price
    2. Judging from the picx what would be the estimated repairing cost
    3. How is the bike if treated as a daily driver i hv a round trip of 30KM daily will the feul cost be high

    Expert opinion from @imranbhatti @MONOO @vickytullaw @7thgear
    Would be really appreciated

    In this condition 100k price doesn't justify, roughly that would require ~175K for restoration however the availability of genuine CDI, Front suspension & Fuel tank is question mark, alternate CDI & complete front suspension from some other bike can be used & probably the Fuel tank have to be repaired but would remains a trouble.
    A good rebuilt can serve good as daily commuter and a person with soft throttle hand can easily get 25 +KMPL from GS500

    But in last auction accidented bike with damaged chases was sold at 65k. So prices are going up.

    I think u must negotiate ... please do keep in mind that these days you cant really fine a "GOOD GS" some where near to one lac...


    60~70k as said by monno is correct...

    Other arts all can be salvaged from Bilal ganj this is not a hard to maintain bike and yes a very good comuter once its properly restored by a sane mechnic.

    Seems 92-93 model. You need to negotiate but as said earlier prices are going up.
