BMW / Suzuki cafe racer mash-up

Postby bfisher » Fri Oct 23, 2015 7:29 am

I'm not a huge fan of the cafe racer fashion (that said if i had the time i would have a go at one) but i do like the look of this; great idea to make it a prefab hook into the Suzuki Gsxr forks onto a GS1100.

Over on another forum I frequent [www.dotheton.com.] - fork swaps are almost boringly commonplace.

You can even buy All Balls :shock: [ seriously ] bearings kits to swap various forks around.

Something we've been looking at for the new R1200 Turbo project.
