CAFE RACER NR 01

This cafe racer is build from a Suzuki GS450L. Read all about the build.

HOW IT ALL STARTED

Wrench Kings first official build and we were stoked. Starting with an average looking Suzuki GS450L which we still had gathering dust in our barn and we slowly turned her into a beauty. And to be honest, she turned out really nice!

We have stripped her completely, customized the back of the frame and mounted the hoop to precisely match the suburb Cafe racer back seat. Of course we removed all hooks, eyes and other redundant stuff from the frame.

The gas tank is lifted at the back and painted with high quality car paint and shines like…. Whow!! And of course the Wrench Kings logo on each side makes it look perfect.

THE JOURNEY OF A CAFE RACER

To keep the line flowing nicely, we changed the stance by mounting new progressive coil overs at the back and lowered the front end as well. This makes it look stunning and provides a more firm suspension at the same time.

In order to create a complete clean bike, we removed all electronics from the handlebars and mounted it all underneath the seat with a completely new wiring harness.

The gas tank is lifted at the back and painted with high quality car paint and shines like…. Whow!! And of course the Wrench Kings logo on each side makes it look perfect.
