I bought this bike as a clean stock GSXR slabby about 8 years ago from a friend. As soon as it was in our garage, we removed the pig ugly fairing and rear plastics and flogged them as quick as we could. The rear subframe was shortened and a tailpiece from a Kwak 750 twin was fitted.We ordered a new JMC pro slot swing arm, and asked them to make it so the ride height was about 2” lower. We went for the pro slot because we wanted to move the rear wheel further back to clear the undertray and stuff for the bike to sit lower. A Bandit 1200 rear wheel was fitted in place of the standard 18”.

At the front we kept the stock forks, but fitted progressive springs and chucked in a GSXR 1100 WS front wheel. The front brakes are GSXR 400 with homemade brackets to fit the slabby fork legs.

The headlights are driving lights from Halfords with mesh covers from the gardening section of B&Q, also on homemade brackets. The rear undertray is made from a stainless kitchen backsplash, as was the seat base, and the seat cover I made myself. We drilled the top yoke and fitted risers and crosser bars, then covered the whole lot in the best colour available, Halfords finest matt black.

I’m really happy with it at the mo, it handles well, has been 100% reliable, and gets plenty of attention, recently been featured in 100% Biker magazine and it’s quite enjoyable to surprise people when they find out it’s being ridden by a Girl!!!
