my Old \'85 GS700... any ideas on how to make bike cool???

hey guys... i just came across this board lastnight and have tried to read almost all of the posts for the ol'Skool gixxers.

well, i've got a an 85 GS700ESF. this is my first bike. to my delight, they only made it one year. im most certainly not tryin to ride this thing stock. everybody 'round these parts have the newer bikes. i know this can be a kick ass bike, but i need some direction. i have some ideas but i would like to know if:

1. are there any pics of custom bikes like mine

2. W.W.Y.D. --- what would you do?

3. can i maintain my super-pimptight-coolness with chics when everybody is out with there 200? bike.

i already have polishing every piece of aluminum of aluminum and custom paint on the list.

thanx

Kevin Schwantz raced that model bike for Yoshimura a long long time ago........... I think 1985. You might check Yoshimura for pic's of what you could do to it cosmetically but I think all those older GS performance parts are out of stock.

I'd say Streetfighter! Getcha an R1 tail section,
and a dirt bike headlight assembly ... strip off anything stock, and go crazy.

Get some Woodcraft clip-ons, pop an APE big-bore kit in it and like Dino said...Street fighter!

Yeah baby, that is a bitch of a machine! I've never seen megaphones abused in such a way. Truly sick.

I love it.

i'd say your best bet to make the bike cool would be to SELL IT and buy a gix....my $0.02 USD.

I gotta agree with phreak... I mean, the old dual-shock air-cooled bikes can look cool, *especially* a huge engined turbo'd dragbike... but a 700 with a stretched swingarm? I think you'd prolly get molested at bench-racing sessions... and yeah, the GS 700's *sound* pretty cool with a 4-into-1 ...but I used to regularly *stomp* those things with my rz350 down the front straight at summit point... all that being said, I still think the old blue/white GS suzukis *looked* cooler than my rz... FWIW
