1983 Suzuki GN 400 Copper Bobber

“Copper Bobber” started out as a Suzuki GN400.
The frame has been turned into a rigid, and after de-tabing and all necessary mounts made it was copper plated.
We imported spokes to lace up the 18inch rear to match the front wheel. rims were powder coated in a burnt orange.
Mounted the satin chrome peanut tank and created the mount point for the leaf sprung seat.
I made the seat pan and the was covered in Vegetable tanned leather with our logo hand tooled into in.
The seat was mounted to the frame using leaf springs so it isn’t completely rigid, one needs just a little give on the road.
The rear fender is from Dime City Cycles which we imported and satin chromed to match the tank
I had an old fire extinguisher which I split in two and all the electrical including the battery are housed with it.
Found an old monkey wrench that became the bucket for a foot peg mount.
Mounted in a spark plug into the exhaust pipe and under deceleration it ignites the unburnt fuel giving a great flame.
We also engraved two brass plaques with our shop name and the Alchemic symbol for copper, they were used to seal up the neck mount area on the frame.
Brown grips finished off the bike.
