    Default Project Suzuki GS 500

    Dear All,
    Finally after a lot of search i bought myself Suzuki GS500 its 97 model and ISB registered. When i bought the bike its engine was good what bike needed was its full cosmetic restoration. Rear left indicator and cowl was broken so i planned to redo it fully. Bike was bought in Ramadan and disassembled in the same month but i was too occupied with office work and progress on bike was also very slow so couldn't upload the snaps. Its still in restoration phase so thought to share it with all of you but be patient because this might take some time. So, below are the snaps of the bike when i bought it, its tank was redone because of rust and stuff.

    Page#7 (New Spark Plugs, Liqui Moly Engine Oil snaps)

    Orignals are better but even Orignal Clips-Ons are not that comfortable if compare to handle ... beleive me.

    Its a bad idea yar... engines are not painted, brushed and buffed steel looks way better try it in ur new project. best of the best paint will change its color when cylender goes to high temps in long tours.. and after that bike will start looking awful... if the useage is only with in city with few miles showoff! then thats Ok but any GS follower will instantly identify a painted engine and say oh man what have you done.

    Chrome is good option but not the one which is done on exhaust.. becuase that chrome rips off on aluminium engine by even nail scratches.

    it will need a cadium, copper, hard chrome and then nickel layer to stay and that costs to much ...

    see orignal chrome(multilayered) on CB250 I have : (qouting from my old project)

    Removed the rear mud guard to get it sprayed as well because it was not looking neat & tiddy and was ruining the whole look of bike. Though it will remain under seat but why not to refresh it.

    pretty soon, InShaAllah.
    the actual work remaining is of around 2 days, but currently it's paused because the mechanic who has to install the head is not feeling well.
