Suzuki never officially called the GS1000S a Wes Cooley replica – that name was affectionately gifted by riders. Just 1,200 were imported between 1979-1980, meaning they’re hard to find and fairly valuable. Consider this a replica of a replica, as it’s a stock GS1000E that’s been given an aftermarket fairing and a paint job to look like the Wes Cooley replica. It doesn’t have the provenance, but it’s much cheaper so you’ll hopefully be more likely to ride it!

Per the seller, this has a “frame off restoration with custom paint” and “most parts are renewed or new.” It’d be nice to have more details, but

Find this Cooley clone for sale in Reno, Nevada for $4,500 here on Craigslist.
