I’m new to the forum and these bikes in general. Just picked up a ‘80 GS550E with 15k for $300. Looking to turn it into a cafe bike. I can do some mechanic work and have an idea of what I want to do but with little direction. Anyone who has started a build from an old worn bike have any guidance on where to start first? Plan to make it a project that’ll take some time. Any help is appreciated thank you!
That is a Real slick bike, nice. I put some marvel mystery oil in the cylinders and let it sit while I rebuilt the carbs. New spark plugs and oil got mine to fire up. That’s where I started but it’s my first “build”
