    I’ve heard there are copious horse power gains to be had from running very, very clean sparks. This guy will be competing with Mr Musk for world domination before you can whistle Dixie, or should that be diskette in these difficult and trying time’s .

    I came across this link.

    Seriously, this has been crated by a "professional" custom garage.

    Talk about destroy a classic.

    No theme at all. It looks like it was built from the left over parts bin.

    What were they thinking!!!!!

    Totally agree

    Way to go ... wreck a classic and iconic motorcycle like a slab side GSXR that should have been restored to showroom condition (and it then would have also been worth more)

    Whilst I appreciated the work hours and money spent doing this, I'm sorry, but classic iconic bikes like the original GSXR deserve to be restored to OEM showroom and ridden and enjoyed as intended.

    If you are going to do something like this - then go chop up something that was never any good to start with. This is just ugly and looks like a left overs parts bin hack that has been repainted.

    The tank looks good, the seat looks like pleated tan over the original base but seems a little long. And something doesn't seem right with the tail. Maybe there's been some modifying. Screenshot_20210226_060828.jpg

    Yes, the rear of the seat is the wrong shape and size for the tail piece. Totally ruins an otherwise quite tidy package. Such a shame.
