I got to bring a motorcycle home with me today. It's a bike that needs parting out and we don't have the time to do it at work. So I loaded it in my truck and brought it home. I'll take it back to work in parts and all labeled. I figure it's a great way to learn more about motorcycles with a "hands on" experience. Of course the next progressive step after parting out and tearing down bikes is to restore one..........hmmmmmmm.........what could this lead to???????


Anyway............here's a picture of the 1980's (haven't checked the actual date yet), Suzuki GS750ES that will be saying "bye bye forever............"

I'll betcha don't get much for the seat.



Great way to learn about the mechanicals of a bike, you learn even more when you put one back together and try to make it run.

Looks like that poor thing sat outside for years. Did they issue you a case of penetrating oil to help with the disassembly?...

I need to run into something like that. Replace the seat and slide in that Triumph 500 motor that sits in the corner.

TRY to make it run? Why, all of a sudden, do I think I'm in big trouble with my Wing?

Good luck on that one....learn every detail about bike & get the service manual.

Obsolete parts can bring a great price. eBay.

Remember.......I am not trying to get this one to run. It needs too much and is too far gone. I'm just tearing it apart so we can sell some parts. Down the road I may get a project bike to make it run. This is for my hubby and I to do together. Good thing about learning on parts bikes is it's not a big deal if you break something while you are tearing it apart.

Actually it's been going well so far. Just a little "elbow grease" needed
