    74 Suzuki GT 185

    I bought a fantastic GT 185 recently. The bike has only 1400 original miles so I'm not looking to go to crazy with the build but probably a seat, new carbs (if possible), bars etc..I dont really want to do any fabrication because I want to be able to revert back to original if I need to or want to sell it.
    Does anyone sell cafe parts for these or will I be fabricating?
    Any crossover parts from other bikes?

    1400 original miles? I take it this thing has been sitting for a long time. How are your crank seals? Does it run?

    Why new carbs? Planning on changing the ports? Chambers?

    If you have to get 'cafe' parts, Raask at one time made rearsets for them.

    What's your experience with tinkering with two wheels?

    I'd look around the forum and you'll see what your possibly in for.

    Theres a wealth of knowledge here. Thick skins go far.
    That's like, your opinion, man.

    I have quite a few bikes and scooters but have never done a "cafe" build. I have a '54 Mv Agusta 125 TR that I recently finished so I am in need of a new project. The bike runs fantastic and needs nothing other than a few cosmetic things. Hence me wanting to put a new seat on.

    No idea how to put a picture in so...

    http://www.flickr.com/photos/mvawesome/

    Think that should work. Better pictures when it warms up.
    Its about 20 degrees here and snowing.

    Will a GT 380 seat fit on the 185?
