Here is a shortlist of (subjectively) the nicest Suzuki GSX Inazuma builds. This list is quite personal – as my first build was an Inazuma 1200. I loved this bike – there is something about these oil-cooled Suzuki 1100/1200 engines. Stated many times before – I believe that this is a very underestimated modern classic.
The list below includes five builds based on Inazuma (GSX 750 or 1200). But only these that keep the original tank in place 🙂 Since it’s so good looking. And it’s not a ranking – as I couldn’t decide which one should win.
Just enjoy the images and click the sources to see more.
I know that this 750 after 1 season was upgraded to 1200. The mods are quite standard for Suzuki – GSX-R upside-down forks. It’s simply amazing. Suzuki sticks to steering head sizes among many generations and types of bikes. It’s so cool when You decide to make a swap. It’s almost “plug and play”. My 1982 Katana without any problem accommodated 1992 GSX-R front. And the same story with carbs – the spacing is the same from 1970s air-cooled to oil-cooled bikes reaching past 2000s.

And it stands out from the others.

I remember this build. It’s the only non-cafe racer project on this list.
Does it work to make a scrambler out of a quite big R4 engine? I don’t know. It’s probably better to have something lighter to pull out of mud 🙂 But they did it, and it looks unique. They didn’t change much – the suspension and airbox are in place. The unique part is from the matt paint and minor accessory changes (small headlamp, custom seat, all-terrain tires, modified airbox side covers… Maybe it’s not as impressive as the builds before – but these minor changes kind of work together.

This one looks cool. The mods include GSX-R forks and complete motor rebuild. More photos at the source.
