Kevin Kemp’s 1988 Suzuki GSX-R1100

Classic Motorcycle Mechanics - - FEEDBACK -

My un­cle bought this bike in 1988, one of many GSX-RS he owned over the years. At pur­chase it had around 40,000km logged. He rode it ev­ery­where and of­ten. He passed away in 2015 and bought the old T-rex (we dubbed it that, be­cause she was old and my un­cle' s name was Terence) from my aunt as we wanted to keep the bike in the fam­ily. He had found a new set of carbs in 2014, so the at slides were tted but as he did all the work him­self, the set-up was not great. have had to do very lit­tle since got her. A proper ser­vice and re­con of brakes and sus­pen­sion is about all. then de­cided to paint her on this red/ white/black which is rem­i­nis­cent of the GSX-R7 50 Vance Hines racing colours from 1985/1986 at Day­tona. She now has 184,000km logged and still runs strongly.
