Fantastic project and realization...I keep in mind your ideas for my next bike....suzuki gsx 1100 '82.
I have only a problem....I don't find spoke wheels for this model and my mag wheels are no a good solution for a caferacer bike.
Any suggestions.
Ciao

From stray dog  to Greyhound.  What a great looking brat tracker.  The engine looks excellent. Nice work

You may have to buy separate rims and lace them to suitable hubs, GS750 perhaps? I say separate hubs as the standard GS spoke wheels would, I imagine be too narrow for the look of a GSX1100.

Sure, what I did was drill the rearset plate 14mm (I think) to take the swingarm pivot and the retaining nut sits nicely in the counterbore. The other mount was where I had ground off the original gear linkage flush, then drilled and tapped M8, was a little tricky to get it square-ish. If you see what I mean. You'll need to space it a couple of mm too after its drilled so it sits flat.


Again, a great bike!

From what year is your GSXR rearset?

Great job. Colours work well and You can see the detail in the finished product. Dig the gauge too
