Ugly#06 Suzuki GSX1200 Inazuma

Lets get things started.

I’ve done some kilometres on this bike and I must say it’s wonderful for a guy like me who still masters the thing called riding. It’s light on steering doesn’t wanna do wheelie and kill you on every throttle twist, but when you cross the 7-8k rpm border there’s a Mexican Tabasco sauce waiting to rip your ass.

Knowing that I’ve started to work on this project very excited.
I want to make it like we usually do in Ugly Motors… Sporty.

I’ve bought many parts to make this bike as it should went out of factory. Main changes which I like and wanted to notice are GSXR 1000 K04 complete front end with RME custom fork clamps, Spark Short muffler with catalogue no. G00SI010I, Intake changes both K&N filters and re-jetted carbs, custom front fairing which you can see on the photos are still needed to be cut and fitted.

There is still plenty work to do so tune in…

A Modern Classic? A Supersport Beast?

Sometimes we do not cut and smash.
Sometimes the Thing is just too pretty.
Sometimes you work with the machine you’re afraid of.
And hell, I am afraid of this monster…

A Plan:
Regular maintenance (oil, K&N cleaning, fork service, front wheel bearings, battery)
Restore paint, plastics, add some gold

A Philosophy:
Make it stand out. Restore factory. Ride, ride, RIDE! ! !

A First Touch:
Just by removing the seat of that 2002 Honda CBR Fireblade 954RR you notice that this bike is nowhere near the ones we work on every day. An aluminium frame, a sub frame, lots of plastics and electronics. It’s more than 80 kg lighter than the 1980 CB750k and you can really tell the difference.

Enjoy the photos and stay tuned for more.
