New Perewitz Custom Hayabusa

If you doubted (did you?) that any of your favorite “american bikes” custom builder could work on foreign brands and models, here is an example of work done by Dave Perewitz on a Suzuki Hayabusa. I understand that Kory was in charge of the work, starting by a complete disassembly of the stock Busa, then the rebuild was done using a Myrtle West extended swing arm, Myrtle West Wheels with a 330 rear tire. The bike is also equipped with “Tricky Air” air ride, and of course was painted in pure Perewitz style. Perewitz Cycle Fabrications.

    I had a Busa back in 2002 or 2003. I didn’t like the fact that the speedo was off. It said I was doing 200-something mph but the GPS showed 190mph. Even with modifications I couldn’t get that thing over 192mph on the GPS.

    What a waste of a great bike. Sports bikes are for going as fast as possible between A and B. That thing looks like it would handle like a turd in a piss pot.

    Hank Young’s attempt stood out even in a myriad of custom ‘Busas while having more flowing lines.

    its a drag bike…. not meant to turn corners. Hey remember… Sportbike guys look at hraley guys and say the same thing. Faack…. 42 degrees of rake and a 8 over front end…. wanna talk about handing like a pisspot!

    That thing is wicked…. whatever you want to call it.

    This bike gets a ton of attention. Regardless of if you like it or not you have to appriciate an American builder doing something outside the box.

    Attila..what you are saying is that the swingarm on that light blue and orange scalloped Busa had “flowing lines”..??

    Metric or V-Twin, a cool bike is a cool bike. Dave has built a strong foundation on his incredible custom work and this is simply another medium for him and his staff to work in. And I respect Dave’s vision, because he understands that today’s market is different and in order to stay current and remain in business you need to give people what they are asking for. Many of our next gen builders see this and are doing amazing things.Trust me, the motorcycles that come out of this transition period will make our industry stronger and better.

    Art is art, it’s rideable or not

    Another stylish creation from the Perewitz family!

    It’s great to see an industry icon involved in projects that broaden the definition of custom motorcycle.
