1967 Suzuki T-20 or X-6 Hustler

What was your intended objective when you started the build?

A bike that had an engine ready for the track stuffed into a small light package for the street.  To have a high strung engine that could handle regular in town riding was the overall plan.

What motivated you to start your project?

I wanted something different than anyone else in the area.  I love 2-strokes and wanted to build one that would be fun to play with in town.  I felt that the Suzuki with its 6 speed, first production bike to have one, was the perfect candidate for a truly custom build.

What was the most unique and creative thing you did to the bike?

I could have done an easier bike like the Yamaha RD series of bikes.  There are so many after market items already out there but nothing for the Suzuki.

I feel it was a creative option for the bike choice.  To add a white frame was also a creative choice to go with.

What are you most proud of?

I am proud that after a lot of R&D work and 2 blown engines it is coming together and holding up.  With the help of a lot of talented people I have a bike that is amazing to drive and never boring.

What do other people say about your motorcycle?

Do you want to sell it?  No!  LOL!

How much did you spend?  Just smile.

Love the colors!
