More description:
The rear suspension consists of a mono shock from a Honda CBR. The front suspension is from a 07 Suzuki GSXR. The orignalcomstar front wheel was fitted with machined adapters to attach the GSXR brake rotors allowing them to work with the GSXR calipers. The gas tank is from a mid 70's Yamaha enduro. The seat & rear suspension mount was custom made out of aluminum and powder coated. The entire frame was sandblasted and powder coated. Other custom made parts include, luminum radiator overflow, icense plate & tail light holder, luminum headlight mounts, attery mount,footpegs and rear brake lever. The valve and clutch covers have been polished. The electrical system was modified in order to hide many of the wires. The old fuse block was removed and replaced with modern fuse holders. The battery holds a charge and starts the bike easily. The tires have good tread. The bike rides straight and smooth, he front brakes are almost too good. The exhaust sounds great... not too loud if you are sensible with the throttle but will make some noise if you get on the gas.
There are video's of it running, riving and walkaround below... as you view them, onsider that I'm 6'0 tall and 215 lbs.
  • The gas tank isn't perfect and the bike does have nicks and scratches here and there... nothing unusual for a bike this old.
  • There is an oil leak from the upper rear of the rear engine, t's not bad but it does leave a small spot or two of oil on the garage floor after riding.
  • The suspension could stand to be tuned as it's too soft for my liking.
  • The rear brake squeeks a little during braking.
  • The speedometer is not included (it's my cell phone).
