Never heard of a Muzeti motorcycle? Don’t worry, neither had we. You see, Murray Wilson is the proud owner and builder of the only Muzeti in the world. Murray (or Muz to his friends) completely rebuilt a 1983 GSX 250 Suzuki and decided to attach a badge with Muzeti on it – which is an extension of his nickname. “And lots of people have said to me, ‘Oh, I think I’ve heard of them’,” Murray says. “I didn’t want to go out and buy a brand-new bike, so I found one on eBay – a bargain at $300,” he said. Murray stripped the whole bike down and repainted the frame. “I didn’t rebuild the engine, but went right through it. The petrol tank’s off a different bike altogether because I wanted a long, skinny tank to suit the style. Where the seat is, I made it all up out of fibreglass, and then had to rewire the whole thing, and I had new wheels made up.” Many of Murray’s friends now want him to build them a Muzeti as well, so with any luck we could be seeing more of these beautiful bikes on the road.

    Wow. Really clean! Awesome bike. I can’t blame his friends for wanting one.

  • Ecosse

    nicely done! i’d like to know how he made the emblem and where that tank came from.

    i always appreciate a tastefully done rebuild.

    very nice indeed

    He did a nice job composing the tank and seat angles, obviously some thought went into it.

  • Pamberjack

    Oh, to have the time to do something like this…

  • Greybeard

    That anyone could see that hiding in a GSX 250 is brilliant.

    And, yes, what’s the tank from???

  • MUZETI

    Thanks everyone for the kind words about the bike, it still amazes me the reaction it gets considering its just an old suzuki 250.

    The front end is off a rgv250 ( the stock forks looked a bit wimpy) the tank is from a gsx1100 and seat seat unit is all hand made.

  • tom

    you deserve it Muzeti, lovely build, inspiring….

  • Jay

    I have an 83 gsx 250 would be awesome

    Inspirational… I've got a 1983 gsx250s i am playing with at the moment and would LOVE it to look something like this!

  • Jimmy

    Beautiful bike. What carbies are you running? Standard Mikuni BS30SS or something a bit better?

  • Michael

    Greetings Muzeti,
    Was curious to know what year RGV forks you're running on this build? Have got some 1989 RGV fork which I think are going to stuff up the wheel balance and turning radius.
