hey guys,

I'm wondering if a gs400 is valued at S$2500

coe die in 2013, is it considered alright or very expensive ?

 

Is it a GS400 or a GS425? I have been looking for a GS400 for years, I thought they were all gone. I saw a GS425 though. The price for a 1978 GS400 is a little high though, as the COE is now $2500, so depends on condition. No parts though.

 

If you are not interested, so pass on the contact details if possible please. I would love to see the bike again.

Hi everyone, I chanced upon this bike around my estate. Does it belong to anyone here? It looks quite beat up and poorly maintained, not sure whether it belongs to an uncle or not. But it has only 1 right mirror, and I don't think uncles will do that haha.

 

How much is it worth ah? I really really want to own it and restore it to its former glory. Also, can I get some advise from laojiaos here how much would it roughly cost for restoration? Cafe style..

Oh..but seeing the bike in this condition very sad. Ok then as long as the bike doesn't get scrapped.

I see, thanks.....

I used to go there to look at old CB750s Suzukis.

I remember they had a non fairing Goldwing, very cool, classic...

 

Singapore is losing its identity.

new soul-less buildings everywhere

even national library gave way to a stupid tunnel which nobody uses.

sorry , friday rant.

Many of us have had very bad experiences with the owner of Zoom In. I do not wish to go into detail but those of us who have been around long enough know what kind of person he is and why he was forced to close his shop. It was only a matter of time. As far as I know, there are so few old Japanese bikes on the road these days that no shop can survive if they only concentrate on classic Japanese bikes. No wonder the former owner of Zoom In is now in Yishun spending his time tricking out Yamaha TW200's and changing engine oil on RXK's and Honda CG's................ something he refused to do back in the 80's. I'm serious, he would chase you out of his shop.......... I saw him doing this myself! He made his money dealing with expats, and had no time for us locals.

 

There is another shop doing classic Japanese bikes in Sin Ming, or so I was told. Can't find them though. Anyone know where the shop is?

Lucky You then! I have been visiting his shop since the 80's and this did not happen every time I was there, but I did witness it, twice actually. On both occasions, locals commented that his asking price was too high. Anyway, Zoom In is history and let's leave it there shall we.

 

Combine in Sin Ming has a good reputation. They have a regular customer whith a water cooled Suzuki GT750 2-Stroke Kettle. I would love to get hold of that one some day.

He was always expensive as he was in debt to the bank and the landlord for his shop rent. He had no choice. Many bikes were brought to his brothers Yishun shop and parked along the main road. Many were scrapped, including those rusting at his open air store. I was there and I witnessed these rusty classics as they were being loaded onto lorries to be sent to the scrapyard. Not a good time for him.

True..if he had sold the bikes off to our local enthusiasts i'm sure he'd earn more than scrapping them.what a waste
