Hi,

New member here, just picked up a 1982 GPz 550 H1, a very rough, very cheap Ebay purchase. Will need a lot of work and this looks like a good place to get info / advice.

Cheers
Richard

Is rough but was cheap enough at £250. I am looking forward to getting it stripped.

Yes, that's correct, that picture is on Sark, another Channel Island a couple of miles away, no vehicles allowed on Sark other than tractors !

Welcome Richard.
Surely a worthwhile endeavour... keeping a GPz alive!
All the info you will need is right here.
Pick up (and read thoroughly) the repair manual in the files section of this forum.
