The history of this Suzuki GS750 is peculiar, as it had to cross the entire Atlantic Ocean to end up in Lord Drake Kustoms’ Cafe Racer workshop. Its owner went through a real odyssey to bring her from Mexico to Madrid, where he is resident.
This is a very common classic motorcycle in American lands, however, it is more difficult to find it in Europe. So Fran Manen, owner of Lord Drake Kustoms, was delighted to be able to work with such an exclusive model.
When he received the call from its owner to convert this Suzuki GS750 into a Cafe Racer, Fran Manen did not hesitate for a moment and prepared to move this motorcycle from Madrid to its facilities in Malaga, through its motorcycle collection and shipping service.
The transformations to turn this Suzuki GS750 into a Cafe Racer
To obtain a Cafe Racer style, the first thing they worked on in the workshop was to lower the front suspension and change the standard handlebar for a mid-handlebars.
The original fuel tank was retained, as it was already Cafe Racer styled, but the upper seat post was modified. The entire rear seat was made of metal, incorporating the LEDs and seat.
Rear air shock absorbers managed to give it a more sporty shape; while the tires, which could be for a Scrambler bike, kept a classic motorcycle look.
Side metal covers with aluminum grilles served as a support to install the emblems of the Suzuki GS750.
As for the colors, a pearl silver combined with a Candy red and separated by a black pinstriping, gave its final appearance.
In short, a Suzuki with Cafe Racer spirit but that maintains an air of classic motorcycle.
