At Cafe Rider, we've seen our fair share of cafe racers, scramblers, trackers, cruisers and bobbers. A proper liter bike hasn't featured on that list...until now.
Behold Cafe Rider's latest build - Project ZERO 28!
Starting life as a 2007 Suzuki GSXR 1000 K7, this bike has been given the "go- back-in-time" treatment by Fahim and his team. It now sports looks that bear a striking resemblance to a 1989 GSXR Slingshot 1100.
German-sourced Ricambi Weiss fairings are fitted to newly-fabricated fairing mounts, while the seat has been custom made. Lighting duties fall to a set of Posh turn signals from Japan, and a used headlight setup from an original Slingshot, to complete the retro-classic aesthetic.
The engine remains untouched, with the exception of dual Yoshimura exhaust pipes sourced from the US, connected to custom made bend pipes, so that it sounds as good as it looks!
While it may not seem as involved as our other builds, we can definitely say that a lot of sweat and hard work went into getting this bike just right. From the way the fairing sits, to the color scheme and the exhaust, the attention to detail is truly impressive (even if we do say so ourselves).
