Not a Suzuki amongst them sorry but thought I'd share the new additions to the shed

5540

5541

5542

And I didn't plague you with a shot of the ST1100 (living out my cop fantasies on that one) - told you I'm getting old

The ZX9R was a bargain - advertised under the wrong title on ebay. The KX450 is a wheelie weapon. As for the Eurotrash well......

Id like to strip an ST down and make a street fighter out of it!

What do you get if you cross an ST with an H1?

Sounds like you end up with a disease or something pathological

Yep I like the Bimota also, never knew they did a small one!

I've seen some awesome "brat" (or whatever you call them) conversions done of the original Goldwings, I reckon an ST would work just as well... gotta look better than stock...

Wondered who was going to buy the little bim - it's been for sale for 12 months +

This is the third one he's sold. They've all been different. He actually has about another 10 of them in his shed in different states of dismantling. The first one had no indicators. The second one was better but again wrong indicators. This one has different rear indicators again and also wrong ones - should be FZR400 ones.
Museum - one day maybe. When I do the engine on the 1100 museum will be open for helpers.......

Ah, ok - thought it was the same one. Lotta money for a little 400.
Gizago mister!

Hmm...

An RG500 engine would likely go alright in that chassis.

Don't want none of those horrible stink wheels near my pristine white lil' Bimmi

Psst - mid 90's Laverda 650 Formula frame - designed by Bakker, RG motor will fit....

I prefer the 750 engine in mine. Clean quiet if a bit lumpy.

You wouldn't have an RG motor you're trying to offload would you??????

I may have a lead on a late model GSX-R750 rolling chassis shortly.

Motor dropped a big-end and the owner did a runner - should be just about at its statute of limitations shortly.

Problem with most modern chassis is they're designed around motors that are *very* short front to back.

The Zane era Laverdas were nice bikes let down by a gutless 70's junk motor. Still, I'd have a 650 Formula in black.
