That's my kinda lock! Looks good Sean. The grips are looking good too.

Get it regardless, it may take you forever to get it up and running, but you have other stuff to ride anyway.

Rust is rust. Me personally, I'd get some marine ospho and neutralize. Leave the paint and focus on the parts to make it go and stop, that's just my opinion.

Good score. Love that lock.

and- do you think it is possible to make engine perfectly?
- i also consider if i buy that- just put VS5 engine or P- surelly it will be not original.. but - can make it move earlier

Certainly that is an option. My buddy has an old gs with a sprint motor in it. He is now swaping it out for the original motor that he had someone rebuild, so yes, that is always an option to get it to move.

It could take months or years to find everything that's needed for it to be a moving original bike.

I was racing thru the canyons with a guy who has a restored version of that bike. It was movin out right good. My 125 was a little quicker so I imagine the motor is about 6hp or so. Good enough for city living.

Honestly, any incomplete GS 150, let alone a VS2, is an ambitious and costly restoration project.

Even though there are a few previously unobtainable parts being remanufactured now, I'd imagine for a VS2 there's all kinds of fun stuff you will spend years and $$$ tracking down.

If you must have a VS2 and you fancy a long restoration process then it's a likely candidate. But I wouldn't buy it just to stick another engine in it to have something to ride.

+ that... especially on a GS... probably nothing cooler (for me) than a "rat" (no, doesn't have to be matte black) GS... That paint almost looks good as is... stop the rust, seal it or something...sweet!
There out there... it's awesome... in alleys, garages, barns, chained up to crap...
One day, they will be gone.
restored propper is good too.
Another resounding "Get it!"

Hey Sean!
That would be a score if you have the time and money, to be honest if your not going to restore to Original, pass on this one, VS2 is a VS2. As for the one at Massimos, I've seen in person, not worth the price IMO. I would be patiant, GS150's have been popping up, so wait for a good score. Like i said if you have the cash for a full resto, get the VS2.
I just finished this VS5, Not cheap to restore thats for sure!

gs restore
I'm new to this game but here's a picture of my new baby:
A 1958 vs4 acquired in exchange for work from my landlord.

It supposedly has a rebuilt engine but I will probably replace the seals at least.
