This is heavily modded Suzuki Savage XXX single started life in the US of and bought it as pretty much standard cruiser style bike. Since then it has been modded into XX's style "cafe racer" using variety of Brit and Jap parts this is not pristine show bike. It's been finished with "rattle cans" in Ford Polaris grey and Hammerite smooth black for the frame.
I have complete build up document that can go with the bike.
So what's been done:

Frame: new centre post, top tube and extended seat rails with new rear loop, swing arm rebuilt with square section and narrowed

Front End: Complete front end from XXXX Triumph Bonneville forks, wheel, brake caliper, stainless brake hose and Suzuki Bandit master cylinder. Custom short Bonneville front guard. X" Chrome  Lucas style headlight mounted in side mountings, set of steel clip ons. Digital speedo

Rear End: XXXX Triumph Bonneville dampers, alloy mudguard, rear wheel is the original Savage hub with slim XX" rim.

Engine: As bought it runs strong enough, rejetted, standard exhaust header with heat wrapping and short reverse cone megaphone, power filter on carb, doesn't smoke. 

Other bits and pieces: Folding alloy rear sets,  one off alloy pillion pegs fitted to bottom shock mounts, BSA Bantam seat, Norton Jubilee tank (extended with dummy rear allowing hidden mounting bolts) Basic wiring loom with the auto decompressor removed in favour of manual lever (Old School rules!), bar end mirrors, stainless racing oval side panels, alloy machined indicators.

Biggest mod that I've done is to convert to chain drive using GSXXX sprockets this has allowed me to play with gearing and it now pulls well and just touches the magic three figures! do have variety of sprockets and spare brand new xxx chain was going to change the gearing once more as think it should be able to get to the XXX mark but in the end left it as is.

I built this as bit of fun and as change to my usual chops and lowriders it was built to be used and not worry about cleaning and polishing too much it's been used across much of the winter and hasn't missed beat. There is some pitting on the chrome headlight and brackets as well as the front wheel which has some heavier pitting (common problem on this type of wheel) it does clean up nicely enough and that has been good enough for me!
It is quite tall but the riding position is fine.
It's not the bike for you if you want to do loads of motorway work or want the sub second X-XXXmph experience. BUT it is great fun on the A/B roads and is happy or up at anything from XX to XX+  and it gets round corners surprisingly well.

It's also great at bike meets and at roundy roundy racing circuits as you listen to peoples views as to what it is!! 
It's all taxed and MOT'd until June, however I'll get new ticket on it for you if you buy.

I would happily keep this bike as my alternative bike, however have one Triumph at the moment and second one is due within the next little while and really can't justify bikes and don't have the space either so It's going to have to go

So if you're looking for something bit different that's ready to go play then it could be for you!

This is XX year old bike so no warranty is given or implied

Located in Herne Bay if you want to view just message me

And no will not send to your Aunt in Nigeria once you've paid me twice the value via well known payment system.
Nor will hold this for any period of time as I've lost sale once before by doing this! So first one with the money gets the bike!
