    Default My Bike: 82 Suzuki GS 450

    Ghetto Blaster
    This is my 1982 Suzuki GS 450.



    I got it all stock and not running. After charging the battery and messing with the carbs for a minute it fired up. Since I knew it ran I went to work taking it apart and hardtailing the frame . I made a ton of stuff for it like the seat, taillight, motor mounts, rear section, sissy and a bunch of other stuff. Oh yeah I powder coated almost anything that is black, except for the frame (thanks geekdublD)



    My buddy markee from http://www.kilbydeuce.com/ made my handy bars (the tall ones)and flat bottom friscoed my tank. He also moved the fuel inlet, outlet and installed his external fuel gauge kit. geekdublD (his handle on 33) put the rad ass paint on the tank. Lace and scales!

    This bike is pretty quick and a whole lot of fun. I rode this lil bastard to the smokeout solo mission style!





    It looks pretty good for a lil work and a lot of favors called in!

    I did think about it when I was making the bike. I decided against it cause I like the open space there.

    Default Your GS 450 Project

    I picked up an 82 Suzuki GS 450 for $200 and I can't wait to chop it. It's my first bike! Anyway, you mentioned you hardtailed the frame and I was wondering what you did to do it. Most of the bobbers I've seen are hardtailed with metal rods where the shocks used to be, but yours looks like a weld on and it looks great. Can you give me some advice and direction?

    its pretty much a weld on tail section that i made myself. I used d.o.m. tubing. cut off the whole rear of the frame and the two side backbone rails under the tank and replaced it with a single backbone( like an xs ). it was a lot of work but it looks right now. dont forget to slug the tubing. dont just butt weld two pieces of tubing. it wont hold. i want to see what youve done to yours so far. u made a thread for it yet?

    I haven't done anything to it so far. We have to get it running first! As soon as we get going on the chop, I'll create a thread for it. Thanks for the advice and encouragement!
