Painting By Numbers by Steve Photography

Many people are when they discover this speed icon Hayabusa street bike, has built by legendary American bike builder and painter Perewitz; but they really be, as it only shows that has his finger on the pulse of what is new and in today’s custom bike Plus, in such dire times, who would be dumb to turn away work because it didn’t come a Milwaukee built V-Twin

The 2008 1340cc Mk II Busa’s are faster and sweeter, straight out of the than the previous model, so possesses owners to make even faster still, or to them?  I’m guessing the same that makes a biker cut up his new Harley-Davidson to turn it into a the need for a little more than his friends and to show Frank’s Busa develops and has a limit controlled top speed of but anyone with a pocket of cash can procure one of Suzuki’s savage motorcycles, and Frank his bikes to be unique.

Frank had his new shipped straight from to Dave Perewitz’s Bridgewater custom emporium still into the shipping case.  it arrived at the glitzy new Perewitz it was completely stripped by Dave’s hand man Kory.  Unlike Perewitz custom bikes, Busa is basically a bolt custom, rather than a fabricated build, a paint it by kind of build if you like?

  The hardest part is in choosing the products to get a … looking bike; and, in this a bike that would Dave’s customer.  Frank has an impressive collection of motorcycles, of which were built by Perwitz) I’m told he owns in the region of thirty or forty at any one time, so this Busa had to be special!

The major components for build were procured Myrtle West Customs and Myrtle West supplied the tyre swingarm, custom aluminium wheels, and jockey kit, while Tricky’s came in the form of the innovative and rear air ride suspension Frank’s Busa has gained an x 10.5-inch wide rear that is shod in a mammoth 330 Avon tyre, this in sits within a ten inch precision manufactured aluminium

  Myrtle West produce swingarms in a variety of over lengths, the shortest offered is inches over, and the longest is inches over stock.  moderate length black swingarm cost an eye popping but as the old saying goes, ‘you get you pay for.’  And this was only one of a of big ticket items: The rear air suspension kit comes complete onboard compressor, wiring and chrome shock body but a little over $1,000.

  The front suspension allows for of travel, and has stainless steel legs, a modular brake and are offered in chrome or black and run to a wallet busting $2.3k.  anodised Tricky forks selected for Frank’s Busa so they matched up with the swingarm and a number of other anodised parts fitted to the like the drop height top tree.

Watching the bike dropped to the ground from height is quite spectacular and takes a split second, not getting it back up is any the less as this only takes four seconds!  For riding, the air provides the ultimate ride, but it is the on people’s faces as you park street bike that sell these items to bikers.

The fitment of such a large wheel and tyre requires a shaft to be employed to line up the sprocket with the sprocket on the wheel.  This is no great as there are a great number of on kits available on the market to care of this aspect of the In this instance, it is probably to go with a tested and proven kit than to manufacture their that way they could be that it will stand up the abuse thrown at it by the Busa’s power plant.

Reading the parts list, I get the idea money is no object, which is as well, as a Perewitz paintjob is as expensive as they come.  The clan have painted the bright candy orange a gold metal flake This has been topped tribal inspired scalloped and more skulls than you find in a head-hunter’s village in

  Frank’s Busa has been a lightweight, all stainless steel, into two into one megaphone system that weighs in at 6.8 kilos, but added another to the build cost.  A tiny, cut billet chain guard had added to the front left side of the swingarm, it is so small, it like it has been added for decoration rather than that however can not be said of the Machine front and rear that are more than of hauling this hulk of a to a controlled stop.

After an all too brief road it would be easy for me to drape Busa in superlatives, especially as I my notes at the side of the road after dismounting while the still pulsed through my There can be few road riders who are to keep the rev needle nagging at the flashing by at almost 200mph is a lot of but boy is it tiring!

  When you first up the big lump and let it idle, you would guess that the GSX-R was at work, were it not for the tacho yes, it is that smooth! To the Mk II Busa it’s boost in size, (up from 1298cc), have increased the ….

  is a good thing for a number of firstly, it gives the road more torque, rather increasing power and revs, and it allows Suzuki to retain the barrel and head design, equates to the engine staying the width.  More GSX-R how has been employed, including breather holes between the that equalise under piston pressure.  The new engine boasts titanium valves, low piston rings and Suzuki’s twin injector, twin valve fuel injection

As for the basic look of the stock that Frank started the Mk II Busa has retained the broad of the original, but as the head of Suzuki styling Koji Yoshiura if they had changed that, the new would no longer have a Hayabusa!   Frank’s, Perewitz is now anything but run-of-the-mill; it is a real turner, just perfect for off and for doing controlled power burnouts… You will simply tire of the sort of performance bike meets out.

  It churning, stomping power is akin to an avalanche rolling a mountain swamping everything in its You can ride the bike again and day after day for years on end and it will make you giggle like a schoolboy.  Just watching how the speedo needle sweeps the clock, how fast the horizon briefly before it is suddenly you, how the screen blurs a warped, sci-fi vision of

  It is just astonishing, and each and time is as remarkable as the last.  The other bike I have that even comes was a similar looking bike was powered by a Kawasaki ZZR1400, but the is a more sophisticated expression of force, riding one is an extraordinary offering the rider the ability to destroy anything else on the It gives you the chance to travel than you ever thought with a stupefying degree of and the opportunity to arrive at work day with a smile on your
