1983 Tempter

This bike started life looking like this (with a little extra paint work added just before these photos):

It also had the chrome front fender replaced with painted version from a later model Suzuki GS- 750. The rear fender was painted after these pictures were taken. The bike just didn't appeal to my sense of style, so it was re-worked, several times without fully reaching its potential. It is currently on the back burner, but it will get finished at some point. Here are some during shots:

Yes, that is a Harley Softail frame in there... I made engine mounts for the GR-650 engine and welded the front half of the Suzuki frame to the Softail back half, which was a crash leftover from a Harley warranty job. They cut the neck off, including the VIN, which goes on the new frame from the crash repair. Since this frame was getting thrown away, I made use of it for this project.
