  1. Some bikes go beyond your average build and become true works of art. This is a master piece of a bike. Give us details on this bike, Who built it and the build info…got to love the old two strokes!

  2. This is a great example how small things can make a bike look like a mongrel. The wheels are so small they looks as if they were taken off a golf cart, the tail section is WAY to high for my liking (it’s completely lost its proportions!), and the whole frame, although impressive, is so massive it overwhelms the side profile of the bike. So, in a word, this one is even worse than a stock GT750… Mixing the old with the new doesn’t always produce a good looking bike, and this one has an identity crisis.

    Having said that, I respect the huge amount of work that the builder must have put into it. If only he stood back from time to time to see what he’s doing…

  3. Tony I think it’s a feature and a bug thing. What you see as flaws a very deliberate design cues in the streetfighter subculture. You may not be crazy about the style but as far as that genre of design goes this is an excellent example.

  4. It may be so, I’m not into streetfighters. As I said, I respect the amount of work that has gone into it, but I’m not a fan.

    [gets ready for the arrival of a lynching party from the local streetfighter club]

  5. I’m way late to this party, but anyway…
    I can sort of see where Tony is coming from. I *do* like streetfighters (will be taking the saw to a brand-new Bandit 1250 here in a few months), and I will say that this is largely a beautiful bike. What makes it look a little wonky are the proportions. First, we’re not used to seeing “short” engines like that, so the middle of the bike looks a bit pinched. Then, the builder chose to keep the old gauge cluster and headlight, which adds odd height to the front, further emphasizing the pinch in the middle.

    Last, the builder put on that oversized tail section. For me, the angle looks right, but there’s just way too much bodywork out past the seat; it doesn’t balance with the rest of the bike at all. It makes the wheels look small, and really “squashes” the engine bay down. The combination makes the proportions look “wrong” particularly to those of us who haven’t seen that many naked two-strokes on the road. Were it me, I’d lose the tail, drop the cluster and headlight 6″ further down the forks, and call it done. The frame is beautiful, the colors are gorgeous, and the motor is a masterwork. I can just imagine the sound that thing makes at WFO.

  6. I built the bike and its now having a make over to clean things up a little . The wheels in the photo’s were stock GSXR but have been replaced by BST Carbon Wheels . I have built a few project Kettle’s. Decided the bike needed some more work so it will get a few mods this coming winter . I have ridden her on track and road – 6000 miles or more – rally from UK to Holland over a weekend . Engine will get reworked and a single sided swing arm at the back with new rear end – lowered down , new pipes , new paint . Cheers !
