Suzuki Intruder (GN) 250cc from Brazil
« on: Sep 18, 2013, 09:54:55 »
Hey guys!

My name is Luiz and I'm a 24 yo lawyer from Brazil.

I've been lurking DTT for a long time and finally have my own bike to start a build.  :D

It's a 99/99 Suzuki Intruder 250cc. Worldwide you may know it as GN 250 but here Suzuki just gave it this name.
Anyway, the bike is not that bad. The brakes are trashed. Forks are leaking. But it runs good, except for an electrical issue.

As soon as I finish my mechanical course I'll tear it apart and rebuild it from zero. I wanna make sure it's flawless.

My plan is to make a cafe racer. I'm aware of the geometrics of the frame and the problems it gives me, but I have some ways to deal with it. Let's see in the future.

This is the bike:





Some of my inspirations are these bikes:




That's it for now. I'll keep you updated!

Good progress today! Got the bike stripped down. Like I said, it was a mess. Check the wiring:



But the good news is the frame geometry is way better than I expected. Lowered the forks 4cm just to get the stance I'm looking for. Maybe I'll go lower by cutting the springs.





Now I'll clean the carb and build a mock seat to see where to cut, bend etc.

These images show how the seat pan will look like.

The size is pretty much spot on although I think I'll make it narrower.





I orderer some parts and today I lowered the rear shocks to get a lower stance. Looked way cooler!

This saturday I'll reap the rest of the bike and cut off what is not necessary. The rear also!

Painted a lot of small parts. Mate black all the way! Although it's a spray can, the job isn't that bad.





This is how my speedo setup will look like:



Clean and minimal. Just the hodometer and the neutral light over the table.

Started to install the pipe thermotape but the 5m didn't even get to the half of it. Ordered 5m more.



Yesterday I disassembled the wheels and hubs. The frame isn't done yet!!!

This is my carb, a 34mm Mikuni. That's huuuge!

The rear loop is done. Finally!

Now I can build the seat pan and so on.

There's also a bracket for the mudguard (that small piece you can see some posts ago).

Finished seat pan:



I used a "Pare" (stop) plate. It's cheap and looks cool, kind of "fuck the police" feeling.
