    Default 1979 Suzuki GS750 "Stella Blue" Build

    What's up yall!? I picked up a GS750 over the summer and have been working on it over the past few months so I figured it was time to start a build thread. I bought this bike from a buddy of mine who had torn it down previously, got rid of all the non-essentials and was in the process of building a brat style bike.
    The day he picked it up:

    Once it was home, he tore it down, fitted a wassel tank, molded a new seat, slimmed a stock rear fender and fitted a sissy bar.
    More details can be found on his blog https://goodridegarage.wordpress.com/ however here are some pictures of the progress:

    Once he heard I was interested, it seemed like perfect timing as he had his eye on a shovel so we made the deal.

    As this was my first road worthy bike, the goal was to add some creature comforts, then ride the shit out of it until winter. First step was adding signals. Admittedly this took longer than expected as it was my first go at wiring but it works. Went with some mini LED's fitted next to the plate mount.

    Next step was paint. We ended up going with a Volvo paint code to match my helmet and it came out killer.

    Bike was basically where I wanted it so I ripped it the remainder of the season.

    Put the nail in the coffin a couple months ago and parked it at the shop to begin the tear down.

    Next step is to chop it up! Dropped it off at Tigman's shop a week or so ago and this is where it currently sits. Going for a couple inches of stretch. Going to keep the stock forks and maybe lower them a bit.

    Once I get the frame back I'll post some more updates but until then that's it for now. Cheers!

    Picked up the frame today and couldn't be more stoked. This thing came out phenomenal. Ended up going with a 4" stretch with a 4&1/2" ride height. Stock rake. Click image for larger version.

    I'll be going with a ribbed mustang tank, ribbed lowbrow stingray fender, and a sprung cobra style seat with a fixed pad on the sissy. I had some tc bros lane splitter bars so I fit those for now. I'm usually not a fan of black bars so I'll decide between those or the biltwell chrome Friscos i picked up a few weeks ago. Got started on the fender mount with the help of my buddy.

    While the frame was out I started on shaving the fender mounts on the forks. Still need to finish these but they will get run on the lathe from a shop down the road and I'll polish them up.
