I have always liked the classic cafe racer style motorcycle. I wanted to make one in the true sense- a stripped down, lightweight motorcycle with only the bare necessities. It only has rear lights and a headlight. No horn, front signals, tach or speedo. In all honesty, I don’t miss these things a bit. I don’t race the bike and I use my ears for shifting purposes. It makes for a really raw riding experience.
I have always wanted a two stroke motorcycle project. In particular, I wanted a Kawasaki H1 because I actually learned to ride on that bike in high school. H1’s are too expensive these days, and I happened to stumble across this Suzuki Titan, which fit the bill.
