anybody fixing up a old bike

i'v had a 72 suzuki gt550 for about three year's now and it's do for some loving.i'm thinking about cafe racer style.it's been a good bike so far.i get some strang stair's from people on her.maybe it's the sound of a two stroke triple with no baffle's.the neighbor's away wave when i start it up at 6:30 in the morning.

I LIKE CHICKEN huck farly

I have gt 250~380's~550's and 750's..
Out of the lot the 380 is the best in my opinion..
To bad you can't get custom expansion chambers for 'em...

Cafe racer all the way. Forget the clubman bars and go straight to clip ons. If i still had the ole cl350 it would be caffinated right now. Old bikes are great.

Ick!

Whearsheef, I think I just saw this pic on another bike forum. Was it posted by you? Should we be worried?



One's personality, importance, or stature is not directly related to one's number of posts! Whore if you can!

Wheat whatever needs to be banned, and that pic deleted. I know we joke around here, but that is taking it a Leeeeetle too far, IMHO...
