Being a one-hit-wonder has plagued many an artist and turned others into a punchline or answer in a quiz show. But having come out swinging with plenty of popularity on his first major success, Spencer of Parr Motorcycles was determined his second single would be just as strong. So with his foundations set, he’s back with an all-new spin on the versatile Suzuki DR650. Taking a 2012 model and turning it into the ultimate urban scrambler, tame or terrifying, it’s just a matter of how far you turn the throttle.

1300 DRIFTER. Suzuki Hayabusa by Droog Moto

Written by Martin Hodgson

The sun no longer shines as darkness has come to span the day, rain rarely falls from the smoke covered sky and what food remains comes by force rather than finance. But away from the prying eyes of the overlords, in abandoned industrial areas lit by flame filled 44s, remain a few who still quench their thirst with gasoline. In this dystopian chaos, the two-wheeled terrors of Washington States Droog Moto rule the roads. The leader of the pack, a salvaged Suzuki Hayabusa slides between the rubble and outruns the regime’s rebels, it’s 1300 DRIFTER.

RETRO MOTO – 2003 Suzuki DR650 by Parr Motorcycles

Posted on June 10, 2019 by Scott in Supermoto. No Comments

Written by Martin Hodgson

The 80s is known for many fashion trends, plenty worth forgetting but according to new research it was the decade of bright primary colours; think Pac-Man, the MTV Logo and BMX Bandits. Suzuki’s design division was all over it with the blue and yellow expanding across the range and the brightness turned up to 10. It’s a look that Spencer of Parr Motorcycles has always loved and he’s gone full nostalgia with a build he calls ‘Retro-Moto’. From a 2003 Suzuki DR650 he’s crafted a stripped down, modern Supermoto, that wears the classic RM uniform.

SIZE DOESN’T MATTER. Suzuki A100 by FNG Works

Posted on June 4, 2019 by Scott in Café Racer. No Comments

When it comes to classic motorcycle livery, we’ve all seen the usual suspects: Gulf Oil, John Player Special, Marlboro, Rothmans, Lucky Strike and even the French cigarette company Gauloises come to mind. But Irwann Cheng from FNG Works in Malaysia decided to choose something a little different – the colours from the Sunoco Team Penske Chevrolet. It all came about when Irwann was commissioned to bring an old Suzuki back to life. He decided to do a bit of research on the classic Suzuki colorways of the 70s and 80s and discovered they weren’t very inspiring. He then delved into the world of car liveries and found a match. “I stumbled upon the Team Penske Chevrolet Camaro and its colours are similar to the Suzuki blue and yellow.”

SMILES FOR MILES – Suzuki FR50

Posted on April 29, 2019 by Scott in Moped. No Comments

Riding motorcycles makes me grin from ear to ear. I’m sitting here recovering from a motorcycle accident I had a few days ago. After a few broken bones and a few days in hospital, a lot of people have asked if I will ride a motorcycle again. “Of course,” I reply, without even thinking about it. Because riding motorbikes make me happy. And the size of the bike doesn’t matter either. Today’s bike is a little bit different to what we usually feature, but I know one thing: this little Suzuki FR50 puts a big smile on the face of engineer and bike builder Mike Dodd every time he rides it.

COOL RUNNINGS. Banb Motorcycle’s ‘Zumax’ Suzuki GSX750 Inazuma Racer

Posted on February 20, 2019 by Andrew in Brat, Classic, Racer. No Comments

Ostentatious oil coolers have been a stock-in-trade item for Japanese car customisers for decades. Lifted from racing car stylings of the 70s and 80s, the more ridiculous its placement and the route the oil lines take, the more street cred the cars seem to have. But has it ever been attempted on a custom bike?

HERE COMES THE SUN. Mecano Motorshop’s ’83 Suzuki GS450T Brat Scrambler

Posted on December 18, 2018 by Andrew in Brat, Scrambler. No Comments

I’ve got a theory that the Northern Hemisphere is sometimes better than the Southern for custom bikes due to the long, harsh winters. What to do when you’re forced to hunker down for 4 months of winter? Why, you build customs and dream of what you’ll be doing come the thaw…

While most motorcycle racing has its origins in Europe and North America one form of the sport is so quintessentially Australian it started life in New Zealand; just like Phar Lap and Russell Crowe. The humble Bucket Racer was a cheap way to get your need for speed…
