    Just picked up a GT380..

    I just acquired a little Suzuki GT380, I love 2 strokes and 3 cylinder bikes, no idea what I'm going do with it, its missing stuff so a little project for the next few months, I now have 3 bike projects .. love the mechanics but realise how much I hate wiring looms!!

    That looks a treat. Clean and stock looks pretty nice. Much missing?
    If you can't pick it back up, don't ride it.

    Awesome start. Just add 550 carbs (28mm) light porting and spannies and enjoy the 6 speed trans.

    Expansion chambers! ... had to google "spannies" to know wtf you were talking about.

    Actually his stock exhaust looks to be in rare good condition, I wouldn't mess with those pipes if they are as good as they look from here.

    A good thing about smoky old 2 strokes is that they tend to keep the pipes preserved

Size:  146.4 KBI have a tank, sidecovers, airbox, and a few other miscellaneous spare bits for a 380.

    Tank & sidecovers are matching Orange.

    Looks like they are for a 550, don't know if they'll fit...
