Saw a sweet old Kawasaki at the local farmers market.

I parked under a tree next to this cool bike while I went shopping. I snapped a couple photos.

It looked like some sort of racing bike.

Here is my next project bike: http://www.rycamotors.com/bikes/

It's pretty much a bolt on kit for the Suzuki S40 Savage 650cc Thumper.

All right!! My wife's current bike is a 2006 Suzuki S40 Boulevard. She likes it because it's light and low to the ground and not particularly intimidating.

In my humble opinion, it would look a lot better and be way more fun to ride if it looked like the above machine. Now . . . if I can just convince her.

That looks really nice. For that kind of money I would probably just get a Triumph Thruxton.
