Ellaspede – Suzuki GS500

This may not be the most beautiful cafe racer in the world but I really admire taking arguably the most boring bike created in the last decade and breathing new life and style into it.  Normally this would entail bolting on a range of aftermarket loud pipes, garish stickers and twin headlights – streetfighter style.  Instead, custom bike bulders Ellaspede has taken this 2001 Suzuki GS500 and gave it a pygmalion transformation with parts you would normally find on a classic Triumph or BSA.  The striped back look of the clubman bars, custom seat and paired down indicator and tail lights has turned this daily commuter into a daily commuter that I would want to be seen with.  Great job!

  1. Hi mate,

    Love this bike. I’m currently looking at getting my first bike and I am pushing towards a Suzuki gs500. Can I ask how much the customs were for this and what was done?

    Regards,

    • Hi Wazza,

      Follow the link on Ellaspede as this is not my bike. You might be able to ask them through my site. Hope you find what you are looking for.
