We are very close to bringing you some shots of our latest creation, a Suzuki GS500. We collaborated with Tristan Schultz of Relative Creative to help bring his thoughts into reality. Here are some build shots.
Reducing the clutter from the front end
We got rid of the old Speedo and Tacho and replaced it with a much leaner arrangement. Steve did a great job on modifying the original gauge mount setup. We managed to keep the existing light assembly but made up a neat little bracket that houses the lighting internals as well as acts as a mounting bracket for the new Speedo and Tacho.
Nothing looks better than having a nicely fitted seat. For the GS500 we shaped up the seat pan from sheet metal, then overlaid it with foam and got craving. The seat isn’t finished yet as a final ‘comfort’ layer is yet to go on before upholstering.
As the seat is being upholstered we got busy sanding back the tank as well as masking it off for a minimalist paint job.
