Bought a 1997 Suzuki Bandit aprox. a month ago and Im not very patient to wait starting a project that is already finished to the very last detail in my head.
Before that I went through thousands of projects to get the best lines into my bike and thats what it looks now.

This is the very first image of my bike. My friend is doing test drive


First thing I did was I removed the windshield


Painted exhaust and motor


Removed SUZUKI logo that was paited into my tank


Removed the seat


And cut the tail - frame and body panels color is structured matt black


Installed a ProTapper Universal low bar and Yamaha mirrors








Trying to update as I go

Looking good! I love stealth bikes. Gonna paint those rearsets?
I think so - currently im testing how durable is the paint as it goes like it is without a coating layer.
So far looks good and stands rubbing and wearing and cleaning chemicals nicely.

Looking good. I hope you have better luck with that speedo than I did. There was no adjustments for.tach signal or wheel diameter so I couldn't get it dialed in when I hooked it up but hopefully it will work out for you

Looks good!

Are you going to put the wave headlight behind it, or something else?
Actually I havent bought anything yet but Im considering that one



Its a High beam H7 FF 75 that costs 33€ here

On the wave there is only one "eye" lighted at the time. This one lights up everything
As its pointed down and the light area is reduced I think that its not going to be too bright and there is an actual chance that I see something in the dark.

I just checked the item description. If its not as described Im sending it back but so far looks good.

It can be applied to different vehicles with different diameter.

It can be applied to different displacement vehicles.

Adjustable wheel perimeter.

The seat position is changing because this one is comfortable only for horses :)
Im 184cm tall and with this seat height Im not reaching ground with full foot.
The problem is that the seat is quite wide and that requires it to be lower to have a better both feet down position

New seat angle is more closer to that one - seat is lower and the tip is pointed up
Both feet are touching ground flat
Looks more sparky

Not usually a fan of the masks, but it really works with the Ducati Monster seat, that tank, and the controls.

Shame the seat was too high in that first position though, it looked ace. Still looks really good in the current position though.

After comparing few seat angles in Photoshop I descided to go a bit down. (about 1 inch)
Taking into consideration that the rear end will propably rise a bit with longer dogbones

So this is the final look.
I hope to get bent subframe tubes today to fisnish it during weekend
Picture is taken today as it is.

Sice I didnt get the subframe tubes as I wanted I spent my time doing other things.
Exhaust is painted and in place
Modified the airbox and made room for battery. Also created new air intake under the tank. Pics will follow tomorrow.
