Sweet!

I have started a similar project with my '72 that I've been riding for years.
Due to an accident this summer, I will be installing pipes, rear-sets, and bum-stopper seat from Omars. I am also getting the Rickman long fairing from Airtech.
Now the bike will look as fast as it really is!
How much did you pay for the Tarrozi bars?

Lots of options for the bars here.

Start a thread with your bike, we can build and share notes.

Not really an necessity considering the mild state of tune of the GT.

SAAB made 3 cylinder two strokes cars which were really mildly tuned. What SAAB did for their rally cars using their piston ported engines was to stuff the crankcase/crank, smooth the transfer ports, ( note, they did little in the way of opening up the ports..) and mill the head to raise the compression ratio. Doing all this pretty much took away most of the wonderful midrange the 750 and 850 cc triples had. This is going to be the case for any long stroke, mildly tuned, piston ported two cycle. The only way to really improve upon it would be to fabricate up reed boxes and new carburetor mounts just so you can keep some of the midrange.

A really good analogy of the same tuning would be to compare the Honda Elsinore enduro MT250 with the Elsinore CR250. The best you can expect is to lose your midrange and end up with a peaky screamer that blubbers and sags when given throttle below it's powerband.

It actually IS an exp[ansion chamber, but the big diameter silencer makes it look like a regular muffler. If you look under the frame, you can see cones right before the muffler starts. Thay make a cool one for the GT750 at Omars Flattrack.

Well, its been awhile, slow progress but at least its still moving.

Ive been working on cleaning up the frame, removing unwanted and non needed tabs as you can see in this photo.

The frame is coming along pretty nice, I also removed the tail section where the turn signals mount. The side stand bracket was broken so I just removed the old piece. Amazing how sloppy the welds are on these old bikes, especially by todays standards, so I tried to clean some up.

Im moving the electronics under the seat and have added a bracket for those.

As you can see in the photo, the small round 3 X 10 inch oil tank I had custom made that will mount where the air box would go.

Also I extended the swing arm 3 inches.

Here it is with the swing arm mocked up to see how it will look. Those are billet Fox shocks off a HD. I think they look great.

Im not going for a true Cafe look, but more attitude, low, salt flat, drag, style, kinda bike, sort thing. . .

ooooh.. looking better in that last pic!
love the oil tank, but is that going to be large enough?

If you end up with a extra set of gt750 forks and triples that you don't want, let me know, I think I might have finally broken down and started considering swapping my T500 over to a GT750 front end..

I post this in every Suzuki twostroke thread, but it appears I didn't post it here yet!

http://www.suzuki2strokes.com/forum/index.php

Sundial Suzuki Forums, mainly Buffalo owners, but a few Titan-peeps (like myself) and a all round good mix of people and information. They have helped me a lot over the last 10 or so years!

Additionally, I am always a big fan of the 'open frame', so I run a speedcell battery on my CL350, tucked under the seat to remove the battery tray. I run the smaller one on the right, because I don't use a starter motor:

That battery set up would be awesome and really open up that middle section. Although at that price Ill have to unload this 74 van I have.

Gotta love 2 stroke 750 triples, Whether they be GT750s, or H2's
