    Not sure how I feel about this

    on one hand I like anything stuffed in an F-bed, and a gs750 motor is a right nasty beastie. On the other hand everything behind the tank looks kinda slapped together out of a junkyard (DOHC honda tail and seat). And it just looks out of proportion. Still I betcha it is fast and lighter than a gs750 stocker.

    Never reaised Suzy engines were so compact. Suffers from the same problem that unit Triumphs suffer when stuck in a Featherbed. The tank and seat are definitely double baggers! Never seen any combo so just plain butt ugly. The price is cheap enough to make it salvagable. I have to say that a decent seat and tank, put in a fake central oil tank, and four meggas and it could be cool.

    seems like a quick build to me. with the surge of norton frankensteining ive seen in magazines over the past 5 years i expect to see cheaper and quicker build versions like this one more and more.

    that isnt to say i dont like it. i'd ditch the ''norzuki'' lettering and find a seat that actually fit. i think a 70's duckbill glass seat would look cool.
    honk if youre horny.

    sure is. XR69 Apparently all you need to do is source a gs engine. They build a race engine thats 997cc or a street one with a wiesco kit, 1070cc or something.

    I remember a period when the motorcycle mags were still claiming that nothing handled better than a British Twin. They'd do a road test on a Japanese bike and say something to the effect of, " we'd love this bike if we could keep the reliability and power of this engine, but make it handle like a insert your favourite british twin here."
    This was before I had a clue that I'd ever ride either a modern Japanese bike or an old British twin, so I was always a bit confused about what I should buy when my time came.
    It wouldn't have been this bike though.
