Macco Motors Suzuki Katana

Macco Motors Suzuki Katana

Posted in MOTORCYCLES, RIDES By

When this 1982 Suzuki Katana was wheeled into the Macco Motors shop by a potential client, it’s rusty body and mud-filled engine meant plenty of work lied ahead to make it road-worthy again. Macco Motors went to work creating a design that would reinvent the motorcycle while retaining some of the original Suzuki Katana heritage the bike’s owner cherished so much.

The build began with a new seat, side panels, and a shorter subframe, eventually concluding with an overhauled engine good for 100 horsepower complete with a set of K&N air filters and a Vance & Hines exhaust system. Additional features include a Suzuki GSX-R750 front end, a 17 inch front wheel, Öhlins shocks, a Bates style headlamp, new foot pegs, and a GSX-R front mudguard.
