Pics of Big bore old skool Bandits and Gixxers etc.

Been reminiscing about the old days lately and getting an itch for an oldskool raw aircooled Suzuki big bore bandit or gixxer damn it.

So lets see all your past and/or present battle axes (custom track bikes and back road burners, café racers).

I'll start with these two.

Not mine but kick-ass



Real sweet XR69 built by a company in UK that doesn't return their emails lol. Link if anyone is interested. http://www.silverstonesuperbikes.co.uk/xr69_5.html

ok, I'll play

I have never had a Bandit, or a Gixxer, but I fondly remember a GSX1100G. I guess I need to upload a pic or two of it.

Anyway, not mine but I like it:

Here's one I'm building right now. It's not the big bore, but here it is.

My '00 Bandit....bought new, will keep forever.




It's an S model that I recently converted to naked. Progressive springs, gixxer shock, Holeshot jet kit and slip-on, fender eliminator, polished wheels and Corbin seat. More mods planned for the future.

No longer own but she was a sweet ride. 2002 S model. Extremely clean. Jetted with a Delkevic slip-on. Only had about 7000 miles on it when I sold it.

WOW, That is so sweet. Bastards never sold that over here. Always wanted one badly along with the TRX850.

Seems like you got a few things done to it...how's the handling stack up??

I can't decide between the 1st generation B12 or 90-92 gsxr1100. I prefer the looks of the Bandit & GS1200SS style frame but think that GIX1100 might be better handling when pushed hard and fir the clip-ons better.

Of course either would have fully reworked modern upgraded forks and shock.
Any experience between the two?

Thanks

Just came across this!! beautiful job.

Anyone know what fairing this is? It's the nicest I've seen yet.
I must have this for either project. Looks expensive tho.

Exhaust looks custom and is a work of art.

owned this bike about 5 years ago. bought it from the original owner who drag raced it. 9.40 bike with 1216 kit, gsxr cams. mild port polish job, full v&h ehhaust, stage 3 jet kit, strut,wheelie bars, slick, line lock, delay box. I took it home, mounted a street rear tire, took off the line lock and delay box, put the stock gauges back on and rode the shit out of for the summer.
the bike was absolutely immaculate, not a scratch or mark on it.
