1992 Suzuki RGV250

Practical Sportsbikes (UK) - - In Your Shed -

Owner: Martin Church, Es­sex Owned for: two years So far: my most thor­ough resto yet What’s next? this is maybe my last...

I’ve done quite a few restora­tions over the years: FZR400S, KR-1SS and also an RGV250 that ap­peared in PS back in is­sue 18. This is by far my best, long­est, and I also think my last full resto. I went all-in with this one and I’ve ab­so­lutely blown the bud­get in new-old-stock parts. I had the tank and plas­tics car­bon-dipped to cre­ate the fin­ish I was af­ter. I’ve gone through ev­ery­thing, changed ev­ery bear­ing, as well as fit­ted closer ra­tios in the gear­box. Pipes are Tyga, shock is Nitron. I’m re­ally pleased with the re­sult.

You’ve got to hand it to Martin, that’s one crisp-look­ing RGV
