Been working on another Jap chopper using the same kind of motor, but don't have pix up yet. These big bore 4s make good rides. Plenty of power, reliable and easy to source parts for. Suzuki-san never intended for this to happen to one of his motos.
I was lucky enough to find my path in life early. I prospected a club young, full patch a year later, and haven't stopped or slowed down since. Been a thumper, a chapter officer, and a regional officer the past 30 years. I married the sexiest woman I ever laid eyes on 25 years ago; we're still having fun. Got a daughter in college and a son in high school and another boy who lives with us, he's just like family. I chop bikes. Jap, American, German, Italian, makes no difference. I build rigid frames for about anything. IT IS NOT A CHOPPER IF IT HAS A SWINGARM AND SHOCKS, WHETHER THEY ARE VERTICAL OR HORIZONTAL. And yeah, I can say that because I've been doing this since the 70s. And I can whup your ass. Easy.
