Another GS rider from Croatia
« on: July 02, 2017, 01:04:15 PM »
 Hello everybody!

My name is Ivan I'm 24yo and I'm fresh owner of a 1989 Gs 500    O0
Since I bought the bike I've been here quite a lot, so i decided to join  the brotherhood.

Bike was in rough condition so I gave him all my loving.... Little bit of washing and polishing and turns out to be a real diamond beneath the surface. Front fork seals were replaced, changed oil, new oil and air filters.


























 :cheers: :cheers:



Cafe racer project is coming

Welcome to the site JohnnyB!

Love that blue and those tail plastics... very clean bike. :bstar:

What size is that front tire? Looks bigger than stock. Also, your header pipes look pretty nice :thumb:

Greetings ShowBizWolf 

Good eye! Front tire is 120/70 and rear is 130/70, R17 it feals really nice in corners,
 Pipes are hand polished and soak in oil to prevent rust. Of course every few days i clean them with greasy rag... I think "rag" is the right word.

But heat did most of the work to give them that nice color
