    This is my Suzuki 750. It's a pretty standard twenty four year old sports bike that has had the fairing removed at some point in it's life then someone hit it with a street fighter stick rather half heartedly.
    I got it cheap a couple of years ago, and it's been on the road ever since. It's had a fork rebuild, new tyres, a pingel fuel tap (doubled the bikes value!) and that's it. It's quite reliable, fast for it's age but looks tired and dated.
    I'm not trying to reinvent the wheel with this project, it's already fast enough, handles well and stops ok, so I'm only trying to achieve a better looking, more road race oriented bike.
    More to follow.

    First thing to do was to get rid of the twin headlight and renthal bars And replace them with something a little more in keeping with the plan.

    A bit less bling and it started to look better already.

    Must stress that nothing is final in these pics. Just trying things out for looks. There will be a mudguard fitted!

    Problem being 1992 wasn't a cool period for bikes. Lots of neon colours. Although they did still have two strokes then.

    92 was a way cool period for bikes, the zxr's, the fireblades, and that is just skimming the surface. Sadly Suzuki seemed to disappear from radar in top flight racing in the ensuing years and I don't recall any racers from the period using the water cooled gixxers. I'd go for a blend of somewhere between earlier period racer and nekked streetbike.

    Bike looks to be coming along nice though.

    That was an awesome period for bikes..........except the weird colors I would agree.

    It would be nice to see an old Yoshi replica. Good thing is there are still things to be had at airtech and places like that.

    A friend of mine had the 1100 water-boiler. He swapped the 750 swingarm in it (it was a bit shorter) and rode the wheels off the thing (track days a-plenty).

    He eventually traded up to an R1 but he never had any problems with the Gixxer.

    I was thinking of this colour scheme maybe keeping the original 92 tank paint lines.
    Fitting a K1 single seat so will have to see how the rear lends itself to the design.

    Not a lot of progress to report. I've been doing some small jobs like fitting new fuel pipes which required taking the carbs off. While they were off I had a quick look down the inlet ports in the head.
    Do these ports look flowed to anyone? Or are they all like that?
