This bikes last MOT was in 1993, Since that it was kept in the local harbour in a salt atmosphere
In an underwater salt atmosphere by the looks of it.
A lot of small thing was made...
I used a Ducati screen making the faring lower with a sharper look
This is how the bikes looks today, I still need to finish:
Make a saddle
Start the engine and put on a chain
What did you do for the rest of the day?????
How long has that took you? I take my hat off to you, that is one hell of a transformation!
Damn! You're not afraid of a challenge are you?
From scrap to that, youve done a fantastic job there.
This bike has taken one year to make so far, But 2020 was a very strange year for me, Of course the COVID but I also crash landed with a bike in June braking my left shoulder in tree and the clavicle in two parts, This gave me a lot of time having fun in my basement but at same time I lost mobility at my left arm and hand as my nerve system was injured. I'm slowly recovering and now I can available holding a tool with the left hand again, Not with any force but I can hold a screwdriver again.
I have also been occupied at Ducati MTS, Cagiva Raptor and a building Suzuki Bandit cafe racer for my sister and transforming my Austin A40 Countryman as a weekend camper..
2020 has been painful, Creative and full of time for family and toys..
I’m always in awe of you guys who undertake projects like this. It looks an amazing job.
It’s a trilling challenge,
My way making a bike is taking a step back and just play with ideas and imagination.
It’s just a funny game
Certainly a bike worth saving. An excellent job! You should have been in the New Year Honours list mate.
I admire your dedication my friend !
Brilliant job, you are very talented.
I’m impressed! I do all that restoration for a living and you’ve done a fantastic job on all.
Fantastic work and pleased you are on the mend as well.
Most people would have walked away from that Suzuki without a second thought, other than to register what a shame it was that someone could let such an iconic motorcycle get into that state. In fact most people would probably not believe that it could actually be saved. As others have said, you have done an outstanding restoration job. You clearly have a lot of patience and enthusiasm (not to mention money ) for this sort of thing. Well done sir and keep up the good work.
Fantastic job - it looked a complete basket case!
