wallpaper bikes

When it came time to select a donor bike to base this project on, Vazquez went back to an old, familiar friend--a 2003 Suzuki GSX-R750--to which he mated the entire back half of a 2004 Honda CBR600RR (including the subframe and tailsection, swingarm, rear brakes and undertray). Why the new rear end? Aesthetics and economics, Vazquez explains. "I really like the sleek look of that CBR model," he says, "and combining the two really sets this bike apart from other GSX-Rs. Plus, the Honda subframe is designed to accept an undertail exhaust like I wanted to use, which made that part of the project cheaper than designing and building my own subframe and undertail system."
