The Suzuki GS1000S model was a supersports variation of the standard GS1000, with a distinctive paint scheme and fairing (often referred to as the Wes Cooley replica). The Suzukis were noted for their all-around performance — a blend of a good chassis and suspension and a powerful engine.

I remember these shipped new to the cafe racers in Italy. They pulled the engine & put in hand made frames. What were the shops? Wonder it I can do that now? - -Chad 8^0
