Taking the unfinished Suzuki GS400 project, bought as a box of parts from eBay, it soon evolved into a brat style build. A welcome change from the usual cafe racer and scramblers John usually works on. Watch the video from Bike Shed Motorcycle Club for more info:
Featuring the traditional open rear triangle and flat bench seat look of this style of bike, engine overhaul and neat understated parts fitted throughout, the end result is a clean and classy build that has been turning many heads here at The Bike Shed Shoreditch venue.Especially when they see the ‘bite your hand off’ price tag of only £3250.
Suzuki had produced the 4-stroke Colleda COX 125cc and 93cc 4-stroke single-cylinder machines in 1955 however the rest of Suzuki’s production from 1952 to 1976 had been increasingly sophisticated two-stroke road machines, whose ultimate expression was the 750cc 3-cylinder water-cooled GT750./wikipedia
