We purchased a Suzuki Bandit 400 in Germany with the intention of fixing her up and selling her... but as soon as I saw her I fell in love and decided to keep her for myself!
It was quite an adventure going to Germany this time around. We passed through a huge wind storm. At one point we had to pull over the car for it was no longer safe to drive! After the storm passed (about 5 minutes) we continued our journey with fallen trees in the middle of the roads. We even passed one car that was completely flipped over by the wind! (It was carrying a most likely empty trailer).
But finally we made it and picked up my beauty
She is a 1991, and was in an accident. Her front forks need fixing (one will have to be completely replaced, and when we take her apart we will see what other problems arise. But I look forward to working on her and eventually riding her!
I plan to start to take her apart this weekend so check back soon for more entries on how it goes!
