Practical Sportsbikes (UK) - - Project Hunter -

This once per­fectly good GSX-R has been van­dalised into what a for­mer fool, sorry owner, thinks is a cafe racer. All body­work, mi­nus tank and front mud­guard, is miss­ing. The gear/brake levers have been swapped in a man­ner that would shame Heath Robin­son, and a hideous si­lencer has been bodged on in place of the orig­i­nal. What’s there looks to be in good nick, so if stock pan­els can be found this will be a cheap, fun thrash-about.

If you’re go­ing to make a cafe racer, at least do it prop­erly. This looks to have been done in the dark with a ham­mer and chisel. Find­ing pan­els and a pipe could be tricky. They won’t be queue­ing around the block to buy this so I’d steam in at £500.

Strug­gling to say some­thing good Still strug­gling, but there’s some hope of a res­cue job to be done here
