    81 GS 450

    I just bought a 450 suzuki that I really want to turn into a cafe racer. I have cut up and bobbed a few bikes but never a cafe racer. I am new to cafe bikes but am really intreaged with these type bikes. I figure its because all the bikes around here are crusiers or harleys so I like things that are different. Any help is greatly appriciated.

    Is there a new model front end I can install on this bike that will fit? Like a gsxr front forks to give it a more aggressive look? Thanks

    The following list is a good starting point: all these bikes use the same steering bearings as the GS450. Be aware, however, that doesn't imply a bolt-up fit, because the bearing-to-bearing distance is going to be different for a whole lot of these bikes.

    Upper: 25 x 47 x 15
    Lower: 30 x 55 x 17
