I'll make a thread eventually. It's a GS550 four. I'm swapping a GSX750F engine and suspension into the stock frame, so I picked up a spare frame so I could do something with the stock GS leftovers.
 I have a build thread going here for the Katana swap already.

 Edit:
 Here's a  link.

Yep, already onboard for that one.  Looking forward to updates.  Neato build.

Generally, I am not a big fan of brats or trackers but I have seen some that I like very much.  I have always loved cafe racers  and every bike I have owned, I have tried to make lighter and faster, even if it did not look like a cafe it was in cafe spirit.  I think I like that cafes are not as popular now, cafes traditionally were outlawish and I like that but they lose that when they become too popular.  I also get irritated when someone puts lower bars on a bike and then calls it a cafe.
Lighter, Quicker, Faster.

Yeah, the whole idea of Cafe style bikes got completely messed up with the cafe/brat/tracker/bobber blending.

Well, I guess I'm a lucky fool. I'm the only one in town with a "cafe" style bike if that's what you'd call it. So I guess that I was never in style therefore I can never be out of style.
