i've had a few of these GPZs now. great bikes imo...when they work


the cherished, 1 owner from new gpz500 right after picking it up


Part ruined


Almost ruined.


I've got plans to fit 17inch wheels from a gen2 along with the twin front discs and getting rid of the rear drum brake. New rear shock and some progressive springs on the front when funds allow Smile

That frame almost looks light enough to fit the pedals and sprockets from the mountain bike on it. Cool

How nuts would that look? Especially with the fairing back on. Very Happy

the bastards made of steel lol the bike in the background can be lifted with my little finger.. the gpz frame not so much lol

i've done 3-4k miles on the gpz and its only let me down a handful of times.. Laughing Laughing they have a known problem with the original flywheels eating themselves.. the aftermarket one i bought then did the same. the other issues were due to it being a '92 (almost as old as me Shocked ) and having sat for close to 15 years not doing much
