    Been lurkin'

    Hi folks,

    I've been cheking the site for a few months. Its been a plan of mine to at some point customize an old bike into a café racer. I recently sold my 07 CBR600rr and stumbled upon a 1977 Suzuki GS750 in pristine shape. I'm picking her up tomorrow morning.

    I'm hoping that with the help of knowledgable enthusiasts here I could get decent opinions on i.e seats and bars... and where to get them.

    I've done the sport bike and SM stint but I'm drawned to the appeal of vintage bikes customized into Café racers like they came right out of the crate.

    I'll keep you posted on the build. Cheers.
    Phil

    I don't think I would hack that up, all it needs is a nice seat and superbike bars.

    W/modern running gear and a fugly seat;



    UNLESS there's a compartment in the seat back for your phone and whatnot.

    It's generally accepted that the blue and white Zukis are faster than any other color combo. Wes was able to overcome this through some of his racing career. Your results may vary.
