Suzuki gs550

Almost 17 years ago I had a motorcycle accident.
My, then, daily ride, a suzuki gs550 was in a sorry state. The aluminium tank was damaged beyond repair, and the subframe bent.

Because it never missed a beat and was pretty fast for an old 550, I decided to repair and rebuild the wreck. Anything done to it was a step foreward anyway.

It had a CB600f/r1 battery under the seat, to keep the frame triangle empty.
Now a common thing to do, but back then
something that raised quite a few eyebrows.

Then, before 'Rawcandy' the banner was B.C.R. , BC Rebuilds/Restauration/Rides
depending on the mood I was in.

Last weeks run was fun.

Old school paper, and tape 'big-screen' gps-system on the tank.

Silent grey CB500f

 The challenge was to use an uncut frame, and built a sharp looking, low-budget townsmoker.
A few people have asked me if I used lower rear shocks, but the koni shocks actually are 1 cm higher then standard.
More pics soon.
