Buffy would look fantastic on Tattoo Moto\u2019s Suzuki GN400 \u201cVampire Slayer,\u201d but that doesn\u2019t necessarily mean that you wouldn\u2019t as well. This caf\u00e9 racer shows what can be done when you strip a bike down to the bare essentials. There are no superfluous add-ons or extra features; just the main elements that make for a mean, comfortable ride. The result is a bike that looks like it\u2019s namesake\u2014you can just picture Buffy, or yourself, throttling down dark alleys hunting the creatures of the night.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nAs a base for a custom bike, the GN400 is a great choice. The bike was only in production for a few years, so there\u2019s not too many out there. This particular bike came off of a classifieds list and already had a big suspension and ground clearance. Using Deux Ex Machina\u2019s \u201cGievous Angel\u201d caf\u00e9 racer as inspiration, Tattoo Moto chopped the tail end off and installed a new loop with integrated LED lighting. The suspension was cut down, shortening the front forks, and a low profile tank was replaced the original. A bikini faring covers a mount for Speed Tracker app over the triple tree as well as the clip-ons and kung-fu grips.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nHow did they arrive at the name of \u201cVampire Slayer\u201d? As chance would have it, Rudy Banny, owner of Tattoo Custom Motorcycles, has a business partner whose name just happens to be Buffy.\r\nCheck it out\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nHave you subscribed to Man of Many?
