1980 Suzuki GS550 Cafe Racer – SOLD PP

This beautiful GS550 cafe racer was professionally built with a huge amount of hours and care undertaken. All rough cast aluminium has been polished to perfection along with most of the aluminium on this bike giving a clean sleek look.
The frame has been completely stripped back and freshly powder coated along with the engine being fully rebuilt from the ground up with MIKUNI Corporation Carbs. Many useful modern features have been added such as a digital speedo, all new brake system, electronic ignition, upgraded shocks and lights. The one off original, hand beaten fuel tank has been repainted in a sublime metallic bronze giving the cafe racer an unusual modern twist, the bike has also been fully rewired. This awesome little machine also has a few little quirky extras such as the Kilner Jar points cover, and hand made copper oil warning indicator, all adding to the bikes unique cafe racer style. This is a wonderful example of how a vintage bike can be tastefully updates and modernised to make it not only a thing of beauty but a really useable machine that is easy to ride and very reliable.
