While I snooze on finishing up my Suzuki Savage chopper, Casey Stevenson has been busy putting together this beauty. Great design, clean execution and looks like a blast to ride. Here’s what Casey had to say about it:

I was in the market for a new motorcycle and wanted a lightweight thumper to get around the streets of L.A. I quickly discovered the lack of available options, so I started working on a new design. I was imagining a motorcycle with a Japanese engine and classic cafe styling, but more sleek and modern than the single cylinder customs based on old bikes that are popular at the moment.

I discovered my ultimate thumper cafe racer hidden inside a bike known as the Suzuki S40 (aka the Savage). They have been around for over 20 years and are still available brand new. The custom parts and accessories were designed to avoid any major modifications to the frame or engine, which allows anyone with basic tools to build their own bike from kit components. The end result is a machine that is simple, fun, and efficient.

Custom low profile tank with integrated keyswitch / indicator panel.
Fiberglass cafe racer seat. Seat mount isolates rider from frame to reduce vibration.
Rearsets with custom mounting bracket and hardware.
Aluminum clip-ons.
Custom fiberglass side covers.
Mini tachometer and speedometer with custom mounting brackets.
Custom battery box. Doubles as mounting point for electronic components.
Progressive rate rear shocks.
Super bright LED tail light includes running light, brake light, and blinkers in one unit.
Reverse cone muffler.
Foot-actuated decompression lever. Eliminates bulky stock decompression solenoid.
Gran Turismo style grips.
K&N air filter.

    I’ve got one of these (1994 Savage, aka Salvage by some)that I’m working on as I have the time too. Going for more of a Bobber look but I like seeing the different variations. Cool stuff!

    Already Bobbed mine .. she just don’t stand like a cafe bike. But they are slick dropped to a 24″ seat height and lightened 45 lbs. Re-jetted and added high-flow exhaust .. holds its own against Sportster 1200s.
