Suzuki GSF600 Cafe Fighter

I’ve posted a couple of street fighters before, but here is one that splits the difference between street fighter and cafe racer quite nicely. Based on a GSF600 Bandit post-tip-over, this bike brings a bit of classic cafe styling to a modern-ish bike with current suspension, wheels/tires, and brakes. Nice details abound, from the paint job to the fuel filler cap, and it looks like the whole bike was done with an eye on a clean finished product.

Although I wish the seller well in his bid to get $8,500 for the bike, I think he will have better luck with the Best Offer feature in his listing. I’ll be sure to do a “How Much Was It Worth?” post after the sale…

Suzuki Bandit 1200 Street Fighter

Okay, okay. I get it. It’s not a cafe racer. Well, guess what? I don’t care.

This bike has some seriously cool kit on it, and I like it for that. Overall, all of these different parts don’t appear kludgey at all.

  • FRONT END DUCATI
  • SWINGARM DUCATI
  • BRAKE BREMBO
  • MARCHESINI WHEELS
  • TAIL MV AGUSTA
  • EXHAUST SYSTEM MV AGUSTA
  • So now the purists out there who hate crazy paint schemes are going bonkers about how ugly the paint is. Sorry. Not everyone has the same taste as you. The paint actually isn’t quite my cup of tea, but the rest of the bike is cool, so I’m not worried about it. Plus, a flat black rattle-can paint job could destroy that $2,500 paint job in about an hour!!! 😉
