Building a Cafe Racer: Part 1

Here is my 1980 Suzuki GS450L. First got it in May 2010. Just showing how I have progressed up until now. It's still a work in progress, as you can see. Part 2 will come this summer :) Leave a comment please! And subscribe if you want to see this bike truly alive!

Building a Cafe Racer: Part 2
Here is my 1980 Suzuki GS450L. I'm going to be honest and say that I didn't spend a lot of time on this video. A few mistakes were made :(. And there is not too much progress shown. But I just wanted to give you guys an update. I also didn't spend very much time bondoing the gas tank and sanding it, so there are many imperfections. This time, I will take my time. I will now be spending most of my time at my school's body shop. I'm going to prep the gas tank, seat, and side covers to make absolutely sure that they will be perfect and show no imperfections. Then I will paint them. But the paint will remain a secret for now ;) That will be for the next video. Anyways, this should be a 1-2 week process. I will also need to upholster the seat. I have until May 19th-May 20th to finish this bike. I must get it done as this is my senior project. They won't let me graduate unless I finish this. So wish me luck! Leave a comment please! And subscribe if you want to see this bike truly alive!

Another video that I put together real quick. Just a bunch of pictures I took so you will see some pictures that are similar. The bike is a 1980 Suzuki GS450L. Slightly modified... I did sell the GS450 though :(
