1981 Suzuki GS550E, 549cc. Registration number NET 262X. Frame number GS550E-145607. Engine number GS550-201459.
The GS550 was launched in Japan in June 1977 as a new member of the four-stroke engine GS family. In 1978 the GS500E was launched, replacing the GS550. The model had light alloy wheels and a disc brake at the rear, apart from the wheels and the brakes, the models were quite similar. The engine was an air-cooled 549cc inline 4, DOHC, 8 valves, producing 49 hp @ 9 000 rpm. Little changed apart from colours and in 1982 the GS550L was introduced.

Over the years it has been used occasionally as other bikes came and went so by 2021 the mileage had increased to 23,752, today it is 23,763. In 2012 he had the bike restored with new paint work and 2019 a Boyer ignition system was fitted.
It is now being sold due to lack of use.
