Suzuki GSX-R modern caferacer

Post  RaceRon on Thu 23 Sep - 0:12

Just showing you my new bike, a '91 GSX-R rebuild to a modern kind of caferacer. The Kawasaki Z750 R was a similar project, it's obvious that I simply like the "modern" bikes in an typical old school basic racer style. Important is that the style is radical changed, but I really love the power and handling of a more modern bike (it is just 19 years old!} Probably it's for a lot of you to modern to turn it into a caferacer, but i hope there are some other enthousiasts! I have sold the kawa by the way!

Cafe or Streetfighter?

I agree. The cafe racer is a throw-back custom to the style of 50-60's English bikes. It can have a more modern power-plant (engine) but must have the retro style, but this is a very nice streetfighter, which is a more modern take on the stripped down racer.

Hi Guys - i agree with you - too fare away from a "classic bike" - nice, but a bit to modern.
