Take your time. Do it justice and do it professionally.

Those were sweet little smokey pots and I remember sitting on them brand new in the showrooms. You'll turn heads everywhere you go on that restored scoot of history.

I had a green and white one in about 1973/4!!

If you have trouble with engine parts, it might be worth checking out the "350" of the time. IIRC, it only displaced 315cc and was a big bore version of the same bike.

Good luck, man! It might be worth checking out auction sites in Australasia - we paid so much for everything down here that folks made them last and last.

I had a '75 GT250 in gold. Wish I hadn't sold it as it was a great little around town bike. Very simple to maintain/repair, low operating cost & even though it was only a 250 it still had some get up & go. Loved the oil injection, 800 miles to a quart of Suzuki oil & no smoke. Truly a start (one kick or press the button) & ride bike.
