Suzuki DR800 ‘Aunty Acid’ | Brag Your Bike


DR800 of unknown year. One off frame & general fabrication by yours truly. All machined parts by my best mate Shaggy. Front end; DR800 stanchions running early GSXR750 sliders, ZXR750 rear wheel with 180 tyre, XJ600n disc with adapter to suit. Rear wheel is also a ZXR750 item with a 190 tyre. It’s never going to be a show winner, but I love it & that’s all that matters to me.
