Ok guys, first bike thread on this page, this is my rolling chassis of a 1979 Suzuki GS550, full Hardtail, sprung seat, BSA C10 1946 Tank with Speedometer cavity. Motor is dual start, Electric or Kick, the electric start will be going, less wires to hide etc... Disc brakes front and rear which I will be hoping to swap out for some Wired wheels with drums, yet again, less wiring, no master cylinders to hide etc... Needs new Coils, throttle assembly, air filter/filters, mudguards, has a 2 -1 slash pipe exhaust for both sides... I picked this bike up for £500 + £100 delivery... This will be a winter project in my current Garage / shed which will be getting rebuilt in the spring.
Hey, fellas. Alright--here's my second attempt at an XV1100 bobber. Hope y'all like it! 1997 XV1100 Virago. Custom intake manifold for single-carb conversion. Relocated fuel pump underneath saddle behind battery box. King sporty tank with widened tunnel and factory mounts/plumbing (from original Virago tank). Custom saddle made by shaving down original seat pan and recovering. Custom z-style handlebars (10" tall, 18" tip-to-tip). Biltwell Kung-Fu grips. Side-mount vertical license plate with 1928 Ford Model A repop and "stop" lense. Amber LED headlight with Hi/Low ("halo" effect as low beam). Lowered suspension. Whitewall tires. Old panhead rear fender. Jack Daniel's bottle mounted as a reserve fuel tank. Removed entire vacuum system. Removed all gauge clusters, "dashboard," turn signals, and about 100 feet of "unnecessary" wiring. Ignition switch mounted into frame. All wiring run internally. Straight pipes. She's low and loud and scary fast! Next projects will be a scrambler for me and a cafe racer for my lady!
