1983 Suzuki GR650 Tempter. $400 from the local pawn shop; non-running condition.
I have this build posted on a couple other sites. The most extensive build thread for this bike is on Flattrack.com. I thought I would show it off here too for those of you who don't like to leave home (ADV).
I cut off some of the rear subframe
I cut out some frame tubes that were in the way. I welded in a piece of rebar real quick to make sure I could still get the engine in and out then I replaced it with a new tube that matched the frame
What's the ultimate goal for the bike?
I'm building a Street Tracker (street legal flat track bike).
Looks like he's going to fix the appearance of the back half of the GR like you mentioned in the other GR650 thread!
(And then some!)
i thought the rebar was pretty badass
that's what i want to do but with a ducati if i could find one...
i will be following thread......atta boy
To expand more on Radian's question, I really like the look of dirt track bikes; they just look like they would be a blast to ride. My favorite all time dirt tracker is the Honda RS750:
I set out to build a replica a little while back, but I was nervous about the build because I really wanted to get everything right. Then I found the GR and I thought it would be a great bike to learn on so I started cutting it up.
Assume you've seen this thread, post #9
Yup. That's probably the best looking GR out there. I found another website out there with more pics of that build, but there was very little written info on it.
Some serious metal working skills, Pablo. Nice work.
I got a bunch of pipe bends from Summit Racing (I think that's where they came from).
And I already happened to have the perfect mufflers laying around.
Now I just need to do a bunch of fitting and welding
i love the tank. What did you use to cut it, and did you have to take precautions against an explosion from old gas fumes and sparks? I have an old tank i want to cut up (and put back together).
