Hey y'all!

Either of one of these bikes could be my first project and I have no experience with wrenching at all but i am eager to learn.

I'm just kinda worried that the build would be a bit difficult because of the seat's position. as you can see it is slanted.
I would have no problem doing very minimal cutting/welding but I still do have to learn.

So my question is: Does anyone have any experience with these bikes? Is the frame really angled that way or is it just the shape of the seat's foam?

Thanks a lot!

Oh and btw, my local Suzuki sells these. I might get one from them 'cause I can't find any used ones on my local listings.

This isn't a real post is it? So you have zero experience and your buying a NEW bike from a dealership as a project to cut and weld? What exactly do you plan on doing to the brand new bike? I'll bet you could figure out what you want a bike to do and get a used one for the same price that already does it. How many bikes have you owned/ridden?

Before you run off and buy that plain old Suzuki you might want to consider being the first person in Saudi Arabia to own a custom built Nighthaul Tea Racer. Just sayin'.

It's probably not angles like that.

Since your fabrication skills seem limited you might want to limit the amount of fabrication you do and see if bolt-on stuff could work.

Motorcycle Bodywork, 7000+ fairings, tanks & tails, USA built!

He has alot of stuff and experience with seats, tanks, etc.

Stephen J is correct. Also I do not know what your riding experiences but you want to make sure that you have good experience / skills before you attempt any heavy modification. It Alters seating position, the way the bike handles, brakes, etc .
