  • Show us ya ride!

    Well considering that we have a section to show off our spectacular cars in, why not have one for the two or three wheel beauties? Well now we do. :-)

    GO!

    A project in the making. Looks ok here but needs a lot of TLC, mostly a repaint and detail fixes.
    I have in mind a 4to1 pipe and a digital dash because it keep braking speedo cables lately, plus redoing the tail section as a single piece in fibre glass.
    Maybe an 1100cc transplant down the track if the original motor ever quits on me.

    For now it is cheap thrills till I get a man cave built where the car port is.

        I had to look that one up.
        A Suzuki Van Van, ballooned tired go any where bike. Looks like fun.
        It appears very tidy apart from the fork tube chrome, are you restoring it?
        Is the extra fat rear tire still readily available?

          You don't see many GSXR 750's in good condition like this one any more. Please post pics once you are done. I look forward to seeing what it looks like.

              Nice bike Dhesen, these new brands will be a force to be reckoned with in years to come.

              It is very original in condition I'll give it that, not many still have the factory pipe for instance. The paint is very sun damaged with the clear coat pealing off in spots and the screen has gone opaque and lots of other details.

              The broad plan is a repaint, I like the look it has but its not going to be a restoration job, more of a restyling so I might go with just a single colour all over. To keep some Suzuki heritage I had thought silver grey like the Katana.
              Not the same silver but I saw an RX 8 the other day with a really nice silver colour.

              I really like the body work on these bikes, it looks nothing like current models but the look has aged well. I'm thinking of making the tail section one piece like the RR model and reworking the headlight area into something that curves with the rest of the bike rather than a flat recess. Also I'll experiment with cutting down the screen height till it looks less old school bubble shape and a bit more modern, so nothing radical I still want it to look like a bike of its time but with a few mods to fixing the things I see as making the bike look dated. The huge mirrors have to go also. A different lighter rear exhaust is also planed that can be tucked away somehow, a bit of thinking to do on that one.

              Like I said a garage is the first priority, so I can strip it back and keep everything out of the weather and organized.
              Will definitely do a build thread when the time comes to start.

                    My dad has always had a well equipped garage with a tool for everything, a lathe and oxy.
                    I spent many late hours working on one project to the next growing up, so I have missed that since I moved to Australia from NZ.
                    Looking forward to having my own space to play in.

                        Here's mine, 2003 SV650. Most fun bike I've owned, v-twin with tons of torque and really linear power band. So much usable power that it's a blast to ride!photo.jpg
