Thanks for viewing, I’m really pleased to offer this unique build, not many of these around and the perfect custom for blasting around the lanes. The GT550 used to be the courier's bike of choice in the 80s and 90s, they’re super reliable shaft driven bikes - something different to all the other four cylinder customs from that era.

 

I’ve spent many hours in the garage escaping the real world, getting lost in this build and absolutely loved it. I’ve taken a lot of care and time on this build and have enjoyed riding it but I’m moving on to my next build.

 

This is a shed built bike, it’s in fantastic condition on the whole, there’s a couple of little blemishes in the paint here and there but nothing major (see photos). Every nut and bolt has been torqued to spec, seals etc renewed where necessary. Throttle, brakes, clutch and gears are all smooth and it starts perfectly every time and sounds awesome.
