Harris and Rhencullen Special GSX-R1000s
Here’s are two specials you should make time to check out, an awesome GSX-R1000 special on the Harris display in hall 19, stand r34.
Subtle paintwork mimics the Barry Sheene bikes of a past era, right down to the Donald Duck logo on the single-seat.
Top-of-the-range Öhlins forks are held by Harris adjustable yokes and feature AP six-pot brakes as well as an AP master cylinder. The stock wheels have been replaced with lightweight Marchesinis and the rear brake is a new AP four-piston design nipping one of the new cookie-cutter type discs.
The swingarm gets a make-over too. Extra bracing is added and the whole thing is sculpted to Harris’ own exacting design. The bike also features Harris rearsets and numerous smaller touches.
The Hertford-based tuning firm created the bodywork as well. The seat unit remains pretty much standard, but race-machines can be fitted with a new Harris-designed sub-frame and seat that is height adjustable. It’s almost exactly like those found on the factory GSX-R750s.
Rhencullen have had a bash at modifying the trend-setter too, concentrating producing the most unique-looking machine.
With a triple-stacked halogen head light, and an LED tail-unit taken from the new R6, there’s little doubt they’ve succeeded. But they didn’t stop there.
The paint incorporates the original Suzuki design, but puts a special twist on it thanks to Dream Machine paint in red, green and white. Carbon frame guards, mudguard and hugger don’t hinder the looks either.
There are five-spoke, magnesium Dymag wheels, a WP shock and a Scott steering damper, too.
Extra braking power comes courtesy of six-pot PFM calipers and front discs, with a Braking wavy disc at the back and a full complement of braided lines.
The show bike is up for sale at £12,000.
