Blast From The Past
While we find it quite astounding that many of our feature bikes seem to disappear off the face of the planet just as soon as we get them featured, there's occasionally a bike that'll crop up, years after it was featured, almost identical in shape and form as it was when it was photographed. This Suzuki appeared in an issue of Streetfighters way back in the early Nineties, complete with a bloke in a Simpson with a feckin' gert big machine gun, an iconic image that was replicated by Antoine Collignon of Artkore for one of his tee shirts (now available from the French magazine Street Monsters).
As per the original feature, the bike still has a double-clubfoot swinging arm in a rigid configuration with a Dymag rear wheel, still has the right-way-up Gixer front end, still has the big bore GSX engine, pro-pipe and nitrous. And best of all, is still seeing use on the public roads. Whoever the owner is, we salute you!
