|Fast and Sassy! Where do I sign?|
To shed a few kilos the aluminium swingarm off a 1982 GS1100 went on the rear, the fender was discarded and all the bulky rear lights were swapped out for sleek LED units. Modern Pirelli 'Sport Demon' rubber was wrapped around the stock, cast GS rims and anodised gold clip on bars were selected to compliment their finish.
While Jody opted to retain the stock tank the entire rear end underwent some serious customisation. Similar to Triumph's Thruxton design, Jody wanted the option to take a passenger so he designed and built a removable rear cowl. With a few quick adjustments the cowl can be lifted away to reveal more of the tuck and roll seat, making way for a pillion.
While it may not fit into the "intergalactic space machine" category, I'm sure there's plenty of folks out there who'd like to cruise around the space where they live on Jody's Interstellar GS550.
