You should know better than most that quality builds don't come cheap (especially if you've limited fab knowledge/tools) - it's all a moot point anyhow as the lad has his mind made up in relation to the back-end direction...

Re: Suzuki Bandit build

Great to see the progress, looking brilliant, also like your 'bitzer', isnt it killing to have such good weather and not being able to go anywhere.

Re: Suzuki Bandit build

Got the pipes fitted, they cleaned up ok, I also bought a can on advrts for 20, turned out to be an Art can, I shortened it and tidied it up, pleased with the results.
