My new project (maybe)…

I’ve been thinking about a new bike when I start working again. Something good for a shorter commute than I used to have. Something like the new-to-America Suzuki TU250. Something that could be easily be the basis of a cafe racer project. Hear me out.

Below is a picture of the TU250 in stock form. And below that is the picture of a nicely modified Tu250. See the difference? I think it be great to have a nice, classic-looking bike that has a warranty and gets something north of 60mpg. And the project wouldn’t cost an arm and a leg. The bike has an MSRP of only $3.5K.
