Smile 2 Stroker Rebuilt - Suzuki Samurai

Hello everyone

Well its been a while since I posted any topics, this time I went about rebuilding my 19 yr old 2 stroker - Suzuki Samurai which was in state of neglect after it was abandoned by a relative of mine who i lent to use for a short period...Well I was apprehensive to ask for damages done. yet as this was my first motive power I tore it down to bare minimum and built it close to a flat tracker / bobber.

Most of parts used were cannibalized from the one's removed. Though I dont use it everyday as I drive to work.

Resurrected to keep the 2 stroker alive.

The following were done:

Battery Relocated
Oil Tank Removed - Tuned to Premix
HID kit installed
Ported and Polished
Free flow exhaust and filter
No meters
Number plate and ignition key relocated.
Seat designed

All this was built and reconstructed in my apartment


Cheers

The No problem bike turns into a fury naked bike. You did not add the gas shocks and the disc brake upfront in the mods done list.

Amazing to say the least to know that this was built and reconstructed in your apartment and not at a garage.

The number plate looks out of place in the rear end and the rear tire too could have been off road button type tires. It would have looked mean, a sober 100cc machine has been ported and polished and free flow exhaust added ? Bravo

How does it perform on the road ?
how is the exhaust note ?


Cheers,
Chaos

Wow man! Good job Really awesome you did it on your own. Good effort!

It must be a screamer now! Crazy acceleration! lack of meters feels a little funny to me, but gives the bike even more naked look!

Kudos! Please give more details of how it drives and how different it is from stock.

Looking good! Love the fuel tank's colour, and the slightly off centre rear tail lamp.

Btw, how do you tend to use it? i mean it wont be a very practical runabout.

Arrow Re: 2 Stroker Rebuilt - Suzuki Samurai

5 stars for your efforts in restoring the bike Looks very nice indeed! But I feel you should put in at-least an analogue speedometer if not nothing else, the top of the handle-bar looks bare. When I was small, I liked this bike very much for it's exhaust note and ease of driving. It was the bike on which I learnt driving a motorcycle, my brother had one of these. It was really a 'no problem bike', but sadly the environment norms killed this one and all other two strokers.

Was the seat fabricated at home? I kinda liked the flat seat look, but I am not sure how comfortable it would be while riding. Do post your experiences about the bike

Nice job! Bike has a rather rougeish personality.

The green battery sticks out like a sore thumb. Paint it black or get a black one.

Thanks..Well I dont intend having meters or any tell tale stuff. The seat plate was fabricated at home with 2 mm MS sheet and cut to size. The bike would be used for short distances and not intended for mile munching.

I plan to install an digital speedo if I manage to get one or retrofit one from either the Pulsar or any modern 4 stroker. I do have the Shogun analog speedo which was removed prior to the rebuild.

The bike is loud and fast to 60, though i dont intend setting speed records . The plan is to keep it long as i can, the reason for paraphenilia been removed for low maintenance.

Well my wife is concerned when I ride it alone due to the unsafe road conditions despite all the protective gear i have..

yeah the green battery looks out of place, unfortunately Amaron (my previous employer) dont make it in black so intend making a leather bag and bolt it to the frame, it's in process.

Cheers

Its a screamer and accelerates hard. Do you really have time to look at the speedo if you plan to go fast, I doubt that.

Yes I built it at home. I have been in the auto industry for the past 18 yrs and been opening engines and everything automotive since a kid. So It was more of a personal choice to build it myself. Well in a years time I hope to have my own shop building custom bikes and cars if the finances work out.

Cheers

Ah! The samurai looks brilliantly done.

Kudos to your enthusiasm mridul! I've been a big fan of 2 strokers since I was a kid.
Grew up looking at my dad's yezdi classic!

WOWWW!!!

Great work out there!! the naked design has suited the samurai so well!! Fell like taking it for a spin!!

I especially like the new exhaust, the new gas shox and the number plate placement!! The seat however could be a little more spruced up, personal opinion no offense meant!!

But all in all great job buddy!!

This is how it used to look before it was neglected and resurrected. This picture was posted way back in 2008.

You will see my old car too. the humble 800 5 speed modded

I think I might have seen this bike in Chennai long back - did you, by any chance, once have it painted Ferrari red?
