It began as a 1973 Suzuki GT250.
Read the blog my first GT250 about the history. How it stood at beginning of my longtime motorcycle adventure.
We transformed the bike completely. We bobbed the rear fender, got rid of the front fender, fitted fat tires, completed it with a narrow gastank, a leather solo seat, and a big headlight. It has an old school look, with a nice stance. The 1973 patina is maintained throughout. The metal has that beautiful dull shine that comes with age.
It was a lot of work, virtually every technical part has been addressed, (see specs), but the end-result made it worth it.
The two stroke engine is not for everybody but for those who love it, this is a very sweet motorcycle with a charming two-stroke put-put sound.
The motorcycle is fast enough. It is perfectly suited for city travel and to run about on country-roads that on warmer days may lead to a sunny beach.
