Custom GSX1400 | Brag Your Bike


Bike was built by myself in my garage with a little help from friends here and there. No big budget, a lot of favours and a lot of trading. The first trip on the bike after it’s rebuild was on our honeymoon through Europe where we did 9 countries in 2 weeks, and just short of 4000 miles.
