Suzuki GS1000 tank
I then machined threaded bosses and welded them in place, so you can fit your original tank badges. Some people change their fuel taps and each tank can be customised to your tap choice.
I love the story of Hideo 'Pops' Yoshimura. So as a nod to him the tanks been upgraded with a Newton Equipment Aero filler cap and one way breather valve.
I just think it looks mint in the bare brushed ally, but totally understand if people want to paint them.....Each To Their Own.
If you'd like one of these, to upgrade your own bike, just give me a shout using the contact page or give me a call.
I'm buzzing and stoked to announce I've finished this beautiful aluminium 1978 fluted Suzuki GS1000 tank. I've obsessed over making it for a number of years and really wanted to do this iconic bike justice.
So I not only replicated the tank, in 1.5mm 1050 ally, but also had a mould produced of an original tanks base. This enabled me to hand form all the swaged details of Suzukis tank tunnel and under-side.
