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.
Hi everybody I'm Marco from Belgium. My gs750 hardtail is almost finished and i have some pictures i would like to share with you guys. This project started 5 years ago. At first i just wanted to finish it plain and simple. (forks lowered - rear of frame chopped), keep the shocks. But someone gave me a Honda Africa Twin RD04 1990). So the shocks had to go, i let someone hardtail it for me on a jig, because this just had to be done right. I rebuilt the engine and carbs, changed from dot 4 to dot5, kickstart only. (starts with half a kick This was my first idea, sportster tank and rear wheel. But I found the modifications to be a bit too difficult for me. Forward controls from virago. (also got rid of them, i didn't like it) Engine : Tank is from a Honda VT500C, some black finishes on the engine. I like the tank better, nice line front to back. Also fabbed new forward controls, but these were shit. Also pipes are twotoone, this also changed to 4 pipes!
Someone pulled one of these pics off my Flikr page. I forgot what a cool bike it was. I built it about 10 or 12 years ago. Engine and frame was an '81 650 Heritage Special if my memory serves me correctly 1980-81 Heritage Special 64 spoke wheels cross laced in 8 sets of 8 Clubman bars flipped upside down Cocktail shaker mufflers A weld on hardtail from KansasKustom Mustang tank with Krommet cap Accel coil Flat trailer fender Painted lower legs (black) Mini Speedo Spring solo seat Home made fake oil tank to house the battery, ignition switch and starter button Ran great, handling was awesome and it looked pretty cool. It was a fun bike A quick, cheap and easy build. These old 650 Twin Yammers make cool bikes. I think KansasKustom is still in business. The quality, fit and finish of his frame sections is unequalled by anyone. If you can get one you won't be disappointed he does perfect, top notch work. kansaskustom.com
