Almost done, just a couple things left to deal with on the Gs so its as good as it gets...the long drawn out  "renovation" has made this the least enjoyable of my bikes to work on but it looks alright...I seem to recall the phrase "poor mans bike" used to describe Suzuki and was never quite sure why, but now after how much this renovation cost I realize that  the "poor man" is actually me...

Sorry Kevin if I did it would be yours...I spent six months searching for mirrors,would have paid whatever it cost for nos ones but no luck, they just don't seem to exist so I had to refinish mine as best as I could...

Sweet looking GS! These bikes are awesome, the torque feels like it's coming from an electric motor. Last year we brought one back which was sitting since '94.
