We built this on behalf of Bart, one of our racers.
This old Suzuki had been parked in his garage for years. A few years ago, we used it as a backup during a trackday on the Mettet circuit. Even in standard trim we were able to set good laptimes straight away. Anyone who has ever ridden a Bandit 1200 can attest to what a great and underrated bike this is.
That can be even better. We therefore decided to upgrade it with all kinds of top material. Bart occasionally wants to use it on a circuit to trump other young violence. But he also travels with this motorcycle.
The first test drive was a journey of 4000 km. to southern Europe. For this, side cases and a different exhaust were fitted. Result after the extreme test drive: a few loose screws on the headlight.
