Default '14 Suzuki Burgman Rebirth

Hello all,

Its been a while for me posting between life and other stuff. I have been lurking in the back, but haven't hand anything to post lately...


Until now. I wanted to show you guys what happens when I get bored and what makes my wife reach for the divorce lawyers' speed dial button.

So a couple years ago I bought a used Suzuki Burgman 200cc scooter. I love riding it but correctly felt like a dweeb.

I always had an idea of doing something different with it. I had to do some service on it and to do so had to take the front end apart to get to the parts.

Once I started I couldn't stop...

And ended up with this:

So I looked around the shop and started digging through my pile of scraps.

I dug out an old motorcycle seat...

And the remains of some rear fenders from a 55 dodge pickup, and some parts from a '46 and a '29 Ford...


I stripped off the factory air box and fitted the seat.

I started puttering around till I thought it looked good.
I split the fender pieces down and welded them together. I cut out the hole for the seat

At the same time I started in on the front end...


And added a little front fender...


I used some of the Dodge fender scraps and added the little skirt above the fender.

You can see that I had an old desk lamp in my Pile-O-Scraps. That and the inner part of a wheelbarrow wheel transformed into a headlight bucket.

I bent up some conduit to make the cowl and the dash board...


You can also see I was playing around with the original windshield. I cut off the bottom, which had a crack in it, and drilled new holes to mount it.

It seemed to fit.

Pulled it all apart and cut the hole for the dash, I was holding my breath the whole time. Came out well enough. Not a perfect fit but I'm not planning on riding in the rain anyway.

I found an old horn that I had bought years ago and hooked it up to a modern air horn. It sounds like a cruise ship.

I made a battery box out of a plastic trailer fender (bottom corner of pic), and made some foot boards from some maple I had laying around.
