|Ryca Motors RR-1 Hardtail Bobber|
Stevenson points out that the S40/Savage has been available from Suzuki for over twenty years, and there are a lot of good, clean, low-mileage S40's available in the used-bike market.
The kit is very complete, with hardtail assembly, peanut tank, a solo saddle, steel rear fender, taillight assembly, reverse cone muffler, and more. There is a raft of optional Ryca parts available, too, such as a front fender and sidemount taillight/license plate holder.
Note that the hardtail assembly bolts on to the Suzuki's frame; no welding required.
Check out the extensive customer bikes gallery at Ryca to get an idea of the cool builds riders are making with Ryca kits. Also note that Ryca has now branched out into Sportsters with a cafe racer kit for 1991 to 2003 Harley Sportsters. (That will be the subject of a later post, I think.)
