OK, I think I'm gonna go with either an '80 Kawi 440LTD or an '84 Suzi GS450L for my bobber project. I found excellent deals on both and I'll be checking them out tomorrow and Saturday.

So, which is the better bike and why? Pros, cons? Bring the info on!


Custom sportbike
Custom cruiser
Both metric!

The 454LTD was a more popular bike, and seemed to be pretty reliable. I'd assume it's easier to get good parts.
I know the GS series had annoying electrical issues. Take a gander at for more info. I have a GS550, and I'm struggling with it not firing up.
Well, I'll definitely keep all that in mind, guys.
