Suzuki S40 Savage Tracker - Ryca Motors, Los Angeles
23rd January 2013
It can be pretty hard these days to be able to find a motorcycle that is not just only pretty cool looking, but also affordable on the pocket. Well the boys down at Ryca Motors in Los Angeles may just have the thing your looking for?
This great looking Ryca CS Tracker is the one of the options that Ryca Motors can offer you from of their line build yourself of motorcycle kits. You can purchase the base standard kit for $2,495.00 which is around £1,575.00 in the UK, the actual kit is built around a Suzuki S40 650cc donor bike
Now that I've got the basics covered, I
can tell you why a Ryca kit is a really neat idea, I remember back in the mid
to late 80's my good self and a few of my biker chums wear heavily into
modifying our own machines at the time, on a regular basis we would
visit the local motorcycle breakers looking for parts for our make shift
I recall the most popular bikes of my generation where the old 2-stokes... such as Yamaha RD's, Kawasaki triples and Suzuki GT's … followed by the four stroke's, the Kawasaki Zed's and the Honda CB 4's wear quite popular to. One of the main reasons these bikes wear quite popular with the younger generation is that they wear really affordable, plus you could modify the hell out of them.. and in those days it was a case of if the part looked good then it's going on whatever!
One of the cycles that really looked cool was a 1979 Yamaha SR500 single belonging to my bike chum Doug, which in the space of a few months turned from a standard red SR500 to an Army green sleek scrambler, with an up swept exhaust pipe. all the styling bits n bobs for the rebuild were courtesy of the local bike breakers in exchange for mere chicken feed. I remember the throaty tone from Doug's SR single cylinder engine was just awesome...
Back in those days modifying your steed was about individuality, plus the availability of parts was plentiful. Unfortunately today customizing modern bikes can be quite limiting due to the lack of parts that are available, also restrictions with wiring and electrical safety features etc...
