My First Build - GXS250E

What have you done lately?

Hi Everyone, just wanted to put up some information about my first build. <br>I am currently working on a 1982 Suzuki GSX250e. <br>I have had to replace the engine as the original was completely destroyed... I have since cleaned up most of the panels, fixed the exhaust and now working on all the chrome work. <br> <br><img> <br> <br>The bike did have a bag rest on the back, but I removed it... just didn\'t look right. <br>I am currently trying to clean up the engine, the fins are very rough looking so just taking my time to remove the surface grime and polish it all together.

Ahhh the chainsaw... well, when all else fails I can fix anything with a chainsaw!!! <br>Plus, It almost has a bigger engine then the bike :P <br>Had to get the bike taken to the workshop last week, leak along the bead of the rear wheel.... all fixed now :) <br>Im still working on removing a lot of the pockets of rust but getting there bit by bit.

Thanks to some great advice on youtube... and some encouragement from 59ers members... I have started work on polishing all the chrome work. Picked up a kit from Super Cheap Auto... seems to be doing a good job so far, will keep working on this over the weekend and try to get some new photos up after that. <br> <br>Is anyone able to recommend good places to get more parts for this bike? I\'m looking to replace the front fender and any other parts down the track. I usually use Eastern Motorcycle Wreckers but he doesn\'t have the part I want...
