You need a clear fairing so the frame can be seen. It's a work of art, is that.


Thank :up:
The biggest problem with the modern era strokers is the bikes need fairings to hide everything.
As they developed more HP they also became quite complicated.
Water hoses. radiators, oil lines, fuel lines, powervalve cables, throttle cables, choke cables, wiring for air solenoids, and extra hoses for air and vacuum needs.... You can barely see the motor with all the crap necessary :cry:
Although Suzuki did build the VJ21 as a standard type bike for Japan.....but it is still pretty busy looking under the tank compared to the simplicity of an aircooled stroker.

I had thought long and hard about building it as a cafe racer instead of going with original paint and bodywork.....still not sure if I made the right choice.

It's your bike, so your choice is ALWAYS the right choice.

The VJ21 SP project will be on hold for a while, until life gets back to normal around here.
Which will give me more time to second guess my decisions :mrgreen:

I had a TV250 Wolf. Never liked the seat unit, so I modified it to take a Mito unit. The motor was tuned to "naughty" spec and it's the bike I set my 250 cc fastest lap of Cadwell Park on.

for a modern water cooled twin it looks remarkably uncluttered under the tank.
