1979 Suzuki GS in Miami, Florida

1979 SUZUKI GS 1000S WES COOLEY 1 OF ONLY 500 BROUGHT TO THE US IN 1979. THIS IS A GENUINE 1979 FIRST YEAR WES COOLEY. ULTRA RARE AND SO HARD TO FIND. I BOUGHT THIS BIKE MANY YEARS AGO WITH PLANS OF DOING A FULL RESTORATION (NOT THAT SHE NEEDS MUCH), BUT I HAVE 2  '79'S AND 2 1980'S SO THIS ONE IS UP FOR GRABS. THIS BIKE IS ALL ORIGINAL (WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE BRAKE LINES, AND SEAT COVER I WILL SWAP OUT THE SEAT ASSEMBLY WITH AN ORIGINAL ONE BUT IT HAS A SMALL RIP) AND EVEN HAS WES COOLEY'S AUTOGRAPH ON THE FRONT FENDER. SHE HAS ALL ORIGINAL PAINT, THE VERY HARD TO FIND ORIGINAL EXHAUST, ORIGINAL LOW 7000 ENGINE, HARD TO FIND ORIGINAL SHOCKS, AND SO MUCH MORE. THIS BIKE HAS "NOT BEEN RESTORED"! AND IT DOES HAVE SOME PATINA ON THE ENGINE, FORK LOWERS, ECT. THIS BIKE LAST RAN A FEW YEARS AGO AND SHE RAN GREAT. I HUNG OUT WITH WES AT THE BARBER MUSIUM BACK IN 2017. I HAVE MANY PICTURES OF US TOGETHER AND PICTURES OF WES SIGNING BIKES, TANKS, FENDERS, ECT. FOR ME I WILL ADD MORE PICS AS I FIND THEM. IT WAS ONE ONE OF HIS LAST FEW MOTORCYCLE EVENTS. WES AND I HAD MET BACK IN THE 1980'S WHEN I WAS A YOUNG RACER, SO IT WAS GREAT SEEING HIM AGAIN. HE WAS AN AMAZING PERSON AND ONE OF THE BEST MOTORCYCLE  RACERS OF ALL TIME!!  HE IS DEARLY MISSED BY SO MANY OF US. WES HAD AUTOGRAPHED ALL MY WES COOLEY FENDERS, TANKS, HELMETS, AND PICTURES THAT I BROUGHT TO ALABAMA IN 2017.I BOUGHT THIS BIKE WITH THE PLAN OF FULLY RESTORING IT BACK TO ITS ORIGINAL STUNNING BEAUTY. BUT WITH OVER 100 BIKES TO CARE FOR AND OVER 40 ON GOING PROJECTS I JUST WON'T GET TO IT FOR MYSELF. THIS BIKE COULD BE DISPLAYED AS IS OR BE RESTORED. IF THE NEW OWNER WANTS TO CONTRACT WITH MY SHOP WE WOULD CONSIDER TAKING ON THE PROJECT AND MAKING IT A PRIORITY. I HAVE BEEN RESTORING, RACING, RIDING, FIXING, BUYING, SELLING, AND COLLECTING RARE MOTORCYCLES SINCE GRADUATING FROM "AMI" AMERICAN MOTORCYCLE INSTITUTE DAYTONA BEACH FLORIDA IN 1980. I  HAVE WOON COUNTLESS AWARDS OVER THE YEARS, BBUT MOST RECENTLY I WAS AWARDED MOTORCYCLE COLLECTOR OF THE YEAR AT THE 2023 BOCA RATON CONCOURS D' ELEGANCE (THE EAST COAST PEBBLE BEACH). I HAVE HAD JUDGES SAY MY RESTORATIONS LOOK LIKE THEY JUST CAME OUT OF THE FACTORY CRATE :)  SO I DO KNOW A LITTLE ABOUT BIKES. I HAVE OWNED SEVERAL WES COLEY'S THE HISTORY OF THESE BIKES IS VERY COOL. WITH ONLY 500 MADE FOR THE US IN 1979 THIS IS A RARE SPORT BIKE!!  SO DON'T MISS OUT... I ALWAYS MAKE THE JOKE TELL YOU WIFE THIS BIKE WILL ONLY APPRECIATE WITH TIME UNLIKE HER SHOE COLLECTION. THAT IS FOR SURE OF THIS RARE FIND.  I WILL BE LISTING OTHER RARE BIKES AND PROJECTS PLEASE CALL WITH  WHAT YOU MIGHT BE LOOKING FOR AND I WILL LIST IT FOR YOU IF I HAVE ONE.I TRY VERY HARD TO MAKE SURE MY DESCRIPTIONS AS ACCURATE AS POSSIBLE, BUT EVEN I CAN FORGET OR MISS SOMETHING SO PLEASE ASK QUESTIONS OR COME SEE THE BIKE. THE PAINTING OF WES HANGING IN MY GAME ROOM IS NOT INCLUDED WITH THE SALE ONLY THE BIKE SHOWN IN MY SHOP.PLEASE CALL WITH ANY QUESTIONS

BOB****PLEASE NOTE  SOME OF THE PICTURES IN THE  LISTING SHOW THE WRONG SEAT, THE BIKE COMES WITH THE ORIGINAL CORRECT SEAT/SEAT COVER, GRAB RAIL, AND AIRBOX CHROME COVERS. I  WILL ALSO THROW IN AN SIGNED POSTER/PICTURE OF WES COOLEY.
