Awesome Diesel RAT bike!! .3gp
This MACHINE was seen on Thursday 23rd Sept 2010 at Stranraer port on his
way to a bike rally in NI, it's a 1.4L Diesel Escort engine and basically a
frame welded to it, here goes a description after speaking to the
Left handed throttle, left handed front brake, left foot clutch, right foot
back brake, right handed suicide gear shift on spanners, (remember it's a
car engine and G/box, therefore H box, not sequential like a bike!!) and
right handed.... well that's it for the right hand, just the gear shift...
Car back tyre and wheel, with shaft drive from the left hand drive shaft
with the right hand welded up! The front wheel and tyre from a kwaker of
some sort, with drum brake, as i said homemade frame, bars and swing arm.
Well, actually it hasn't got a swing arm as such, as it doesn't swing....
the suspension is in the seat, unless you're the pillion and then you've
got foam and gaffer tape!!!! And in my opinion the best bit must be the
purpose built luggage.
Hope you guys enjoy it!

Project Rat Bike Part One
1983 Suzuki GS450L... has history, read blog for details.
Ages back, this 1983 Suzuki GS450L rolled off the line in Japan, found it's
way into a shipping crate and subsequently ended up in America, most likely
California where it was soon to be shipped to a Suzuki dealer in Michigan,
to be purchased by someone. That someone had some fun with it, in fact, so
much fun that the bike was eventually crashed and impounded. We can only
assume at this point anyway. In the Mid-Nineties my friend Joe, a Wayne
County Sherrif saw the bike in the impound yard and scooped it up for real
cheap, brought it over to (at the time) Pilgrim Motorsports for an
extensive look over. Joe ended up purchasing a set of tires, tweaking the
brakes, replaced some turn signal lamps and other lil bits.
Happy Joe was zipping all over town and across Michigan with this machine
as she was breathed life yet again, times were great, and so was the bike.
Joe had ridden this machine for some years, racked up a few thousand miles
and eventually sold the bike to Our mutual friend Jay, which had the bike
for a few years, only accruing a few hundred miles, but for being a rather
large man, some would say that he looked a little out of place, strange, or
just plain wrong on this bike, so he ended up parking the Suzi for more
important things, like family and life. The bike was , however, ridden in a
chairity event to Hell, Mi for one of the last rides.
Suzi was sad, heartbroken, that nobody wantet to ride her, so she gummed
her carbs on them. This performance hit was noticable, and some would say
that she was only firing on one cylinder... We might never know the exact
truths here, as an unnamed crazy hack mechanic went at it, fighting Suzi
every step of the way, and she fought back, and fought back hard. The
Mechanic had stripped almost every screw, bolt, and nut on her, and in
fact, doglegged a sheet-metal screw into the left carburator's float bowl,
which ended up causing more grief then necessary, Suzi had won the battle.
Shall no one tame her?
So Lonly Suzi slumbered for a few years in a dusty garage, also known as
the "Man-Cave". In here she would be covered in household goods until her
next owner would fall in love and want to take her on as a starter bike /
project. It was a snowy December 9th and "LARC0" Had her delivered via
flatbed tow-truck to his garage, filled with other unfinished projects, yet
accepting another, but this was different... Suzi IS different.
Time went on, and here are the stories, only to be told in brief viral
videos, video logs, also known as VLOGS, of a 1983 Suzuki GS450L, with a
terrible petrol leak from the carbs, and not enough time to care after...
Suzi sat yet again, for two and a half years, turned over a few times, but
nothing to call an accomplishment, Suzi just sat in Larc0's garage until
Project Rat Bike is born.
