1980 Suzuki GN400 Basket Case

I've got an '80 GN 400 taken completely apart, but the engine is still together, and everything on the engine looks real good. It is a 400 cc single, based on the SP400 dual sport of years ago. It appears that someone tried to make a bobber out of it, there is bondo on the frame where they tried to mold in the welds. The frame is stripped of paint, it has the old style X pattern cast alloy wheels, the gas tank is flat black, there is not front brake on it, but it might be in the box of parts. The speedo/odo shows <7000 miles.

Personally, I wouldn't put it back together as a rideable bike, but would use the engine for something, motorized bar stool, go cart, blender, whatever.
The carburetor is there, the ignition, the charging system, it's all there. We talked about it at work, but the consensus was that they would create new rules about dangerous toys if we did. As it is, there are no more dirt bikes allowed at work.

It has paperwork and a license plate, but it is out since '09.
