If you remember the superb Kwikasfaki custom we wrote up recently, a GSX-R framed special powered by a Kawasaki 750 triple, you know the combo makes for a really sweet bike and that particular custom showed what it looks like when it’s done right. Santiago Chopper, tried to do one of these a little while back and it didn’t come out so well. Maybe they saw the Kwikasfaki, too, or maybe they just learned from their first attempt, but this one looks a whole lot better.
This time the GSX-R frame mounts Ducati 1098 forks and a Ducati 1100S swing arm. The Kawasaki triple is a 140 horsepower special built in the Fast by Gast shop and the whole package seems to fit together very well.
Has this combination been popular for a long time? It sure seems like we’re seeing a lot more of these all of a sudden, but if you have a tired H2 beyond restoration or repair, the GSX-R swap might be something to consider.
