1979 Suzuki GS750

Congratulations to Adam & Josh Jenkins of Huntington Beach for winning Bike of the Month with their 1979 Suzuki GS750. They won a Mr. Pete's Grill gift certificate. These brothers live right around the corner from our meet and just finished this seven year project that started as a basket case.

Adam & Josh own many bikes between them and had been to the meet before at Beach Burgers. Adam currently works for OC Motorcycle in Costa Mesa. Josh also worked there while he was earning his Industrial Design degree from Cal State Long Beach.

Josh's design touches shine on this custom café especially on the custom switches and through the bar wiring.

Josh also formed the seat which they had upolstered and the tail section hides the Lithium Ion battery.

The paint is Home Depot Rustoleum Gray with a professional clear coat.

They had some stiff competition today with some rare bikes. These guys have something they should be proud of.

Thanks Adam & Josh for bringing it to our meet. See all the photos in our January Gallery.
