I used to be into that sort of thing, GSX engines fit in them.


I always wanted to do a 550/1200 (GS/Bandit) out of an old E model with the cooler tail section, but just never got around to it, when I finally did do some measuring with a pair of bikes I had on hand, it wouldn't have been a difficult death trap to build. I imagine a Katana 750 lump in a cruiser model like you've got would be a whole ton of fun for banging around being a hooligan. It's a real shame those older bikes are becoming forgotten, when only 6-8 years ago, they pulled 800-1k easily if they could be ridden away on good tires.

I found a gs550 group on Facebook, seems to pretty active. I'll see if they want it since this thing could come back to life if someone cared. Anything I do to it wouldn't be nice lol. And I have a million other bikes. I wouldn't mind having a kick start stripped down cafe on some tall wheels, but that's a lot of work on a bike with no title.

I can't find $100 bikes around here. Everyone believes the $1 per cc bullshit and will ask $500-600 for something like that.

If you can find this many $100 bikes I'm thinking you'd come out best parting them on ebay.

If it's more than an hour away I won't invest the time. Used to be tons of old Jap stuff, but the cafe brat rat hipster craze ate up those resources hard over the past 5 years.

I built a GS 550 frame with an RF900 motor a couple years ago. Was a fun ride.
