Suzuki GSX1400 custom voted “Best Jap” at Bulldog Bash

This radically altered Suzuki GSX1400 is now an award-winning custom, having topped the “Best Jap” category at the “Custom Show” of this weekend’s 25th annual Bulldog Bash in Warwickshire. Built by Luke Reed from Hengrove, Bristol, the 1402cc inline four engine of the Japanese roadster appears to be the only part of the original bike remaining. Find a Suzuki GSX1400 for...

why put a motor that big in a chasis that cant handle, at all.

come on, its gotta be better than a gsx 1400 or your flogging a dead horse - at great expense i might add

i dont know what the other bikes looked like, im sort of glad i dont.

Is that old bloke in the background on the first picture the guy from 'The Salvager'. You know that programme on Quest where a guy makes something shit out of something shitter? People who've seen it may remember the monstrosity that was the chaise longue that he made out of an old car - absolute rubbish.

Wrong !!!

Well,well,well. I wonder how many of you who passed the sarky comments about this bike were at the Bulldog to see the quality of this bike in the flesh prior to your outbursts????, and, WTF has the wastecoat got to do with the bike anyway?.

As usual NCN have their facts wrong about the bike, may I suggest you stick to what you do best and stick to reporting to your mass readers "Motorcyclists" about Motorcycles and please don't venture into the world of "Bikers" and their bikes until you and your readers understand anything about the subject..

You don't have to ride or own a chop to be "a biker", now don't talk shite.

I've got 40 plus years on bikes and never a feet forward or chopper, or cruiser yet.....Don't intend to. I like bikes that "go", handle and stop. Hence the Hayabusa amongst others in the shed.

Best Jap

I wonder, how many of the negative comment posters actually know what they are talking about?

How many of them have actually built anything that would even get noticed?

This bike was considered worthy of winning Best Jap by it's peers, by people who actually know what they are talking about so why all the spite?

It's a custom bike show afterall. Not too many jizzed on stockers in the line-up me thinks.

Just a comment about the article - the owner didn't build it - he bought it....!!
