FS: Modified 1996 GS500
« on: February 06, 2019, 11:54:11 PM »
Hi everybody, it has been so long since I've been here.

I haven't ridden her in the last 3 years and went to do a carb cleaning and lost interest.
So that's a sign she needs to go to someone who can give her some TLC and ride her.
And I want her to go to an enthusiast just like me when I join this board.

1996 GS500
-Bandit rear wheel swap
-custom under frame side exhaust
-Brazilian fairing with floating seat
-frame integrated LED stop and turn signal
-Cadillac seat tail lights
-pod air filters
-clip on bars
-Vortex gas cap
-custom stretch swingarm (6" longer)
-custom dogbones w/ R6 rear shock
-F3 rearsets and pegs
-15T front sprocket, 36T rear sprocket(?)
-AGM battery connected to battery tender prong
-sprayed canned flat black and waxed
-wider tires front and back
-extended kick stand

And prob a lot of other things...

I'm located in Beaverton, Oregon (Portland). She will need to be hauled away since I did not put the carbs back. Besides she will need a fresh tank of gas anyways. I'm sad to let her go but don't have heart to part her out.

First $1000 takes her home.

PM or shoot me an email at if you are interested. Let me know if you have any questions.

The champ returns!  I always wondered what happd with that beautiful creation :bowdown:  I swear I'd come get this right now if I lived closer to you.  That bike was inspiration for me over and over! :mad:  At least it still exists!  This bike is a legend!  Kills me I'm not closer.  Agony!

I agree, this bike is a legend. It inspired a lot of the original modifications I did 10 years ago. Teenage version of myself would kill me for not snatching this up. Iím local and I can afford it but a little short on garage space and time to ride. Plus I already have a GS500. Iíll have to think about it.
How loud is that exhaust? Did it run well when the carbs were clean?
