Hayabusa customs are everywhere, stretched swingarms, huge tires, turbos, nitrous, chrome all over and as wild as they are, they all use the same formula, if you’ve seen one, you’ve seen them all. This one’s different. Built by Gregg’s Customs and Jon Reed of Sport Chrome, you have to look really close or you wouldn’t even know it was a Hayabusa, it looks more GSX-R than anything, thanks to a Gixxer tail section on a custom subframe. The Busa’s tail is so distinctive it throws everyone off when it’s removed. This bike is for sale on eBay and if you’re in the market for a custom that’s so radical, people will mistake it for a custom version of something else entirely, this is your bike.
The tail section that completely changes the look of the Hayabusa is mounted to a custom subframe that is supposed to become available from Gregg’s Customs but has not yet appeared. I would imagine, when it does, there will be more than a few Busa owners looking to swap theirs for the cleaner lines of this bike.
Wouldn’t it be nice if a bike like this could start a trend toward fewer bikes built from a catalog of extremes (my swingarm’s longer than yours) and instead began with some well thought out changes that turn a motorcycle into something that almost appears factory but is actually an undercover radical? I like the thought that went into this. Nicely done.
