During all these years of economic recession, Builders Ryan Rajewski and Casey Stevenson at California Ryca Motors have found a very profitable niche. Offering a CS-1 Kit costing between $2,600 to $3,000 which converts a Suzuki S40 -aka Suzuki Savage – into a lightweight, reliable, and fuel efficient Cafe Racer.
All parts are included and the duo claims that in one year they have sold 300 of these kits with 95% of them being built by customers in their garage in less than 48 hours! You just need a used Suzuki 540 (average price with low miles is 1200/$1500 and eBay is full of them) and some hand tools. Instructions included via downloadable PDF and no welding required!
American Suzuki Motor Corp. was so impressed with the assembled kits that they are actively promoting them to the brand’s 950 U.S. dealers as a showroom lure to increase sales… Strong of their success, Ryan Rajewski and Casey Stevenson are now working on street tracker, scrambler, and bobber kits to be released very soon. Can anyone do better for a total assembled motorcycle costing less than $5000. Ryca Motors.
