Default next project

Here is my GS1000G had it for about 15+ years and am now going to the next stage in its life.



Its going to have a 240 rear tyre, gsx1400 tank and so on, just started on it and as MMMM summer is here I wont be getting it done over night, so a bit of a long term one
This is how it did look

I know who you are now (from OSS) how are you planning to fit the 240 with the shaft?

Yes, the back wheel is off a Suzi shaft bike, so all I need to do is make a new swing arm, it sounds so simple LOL, a lot of work, but got it all figerd out just need to get some time to make a good start on it, put the ZXR400 USD front end on and I need to get some yokes made up 1. it will look better 2. need to put 50mm on the hight as at the mo it's neal on the deck

Very sweet, i like the old suzuki's, (the proper ones!) they had more character (have a GS1000 engine and notts custom frame in my shed that needs to go back together very soon)
Your rear, NTV 650 wheel and swinging arm per chance (used to have one, exellent little hooligan tool) it looks really good, a mate is in the process of using the same set up (if it is the NTV 650 swinger and wheel) in an XS project he has been doing for 7+ years!

Thats a Kat tank though, keep it, they look much more agressive in its styling.

I'm going to have to put a extra nuckjunt in the shaft and then run a berring next to that (thats how they do it on the V Maxs)
Yes the swing arm and wheel is a NTV650 and the tank is a 650 Kat, the problem with the tank being the 650 one and the state of tune on the engine is that I only get about 20-25 MPG if I'm lucky so I only got about 60 miles out of the tank at best, and as the GSX1400 is much bigger and more so when I've welded the GS tank bottom on to it, it shold give me some more room for petrol and I wont be looking to fill up all the time

Thank you very much
Yes got it off a compny who had triked one you have the same sort of idea as mine, will be running the standerd UJ at the engine, the as/where the swing arm needs to start going strat back to the hub I will be putting a secend UJ with a suport berring in the swing arm to suport that UJ.
The bigest head scracher is how to get a berring in the swing arm that can also be removed?
That may need a bit more of a good chat the Steve at Taylermade, a very helpfull man

nah that's german iirc, I did mine on a hardtail so it was easier, look at putting disc between wheel & diff if you like a clean look (no brake on right then) mount caliper off front of diff casing.
