Question Why, oh why...?

Thanks, and that is a good question.

Two reasons actually, the first is my initials and the second reason is relating to the bike my father rode when I was a baby (1955).
So it is sort of my tribute to his bike.
He sold it to be a good father and while he helped us buy bikes and took us riding he never owned another motorcycle.

An original AJS (or Matchless) are out of my reach financially, especially to convert into a street tracker.
If I ever found one I could afford I would restore it to stock.

I will be removing the "Suzuki" name on the engine to further cloud its identity
