Santiago Choppers Builds Cafe Racer Masterpieces

A big fan of 1970-80s European frame designer George Martin, Bernard chose one of his chassis onto which he melded a blend of Kawasaki and Suzuki parts including a ’78 1135cc Kawi engine with ’82 Kawi z1000 heads matched to Mikuni flatslide carbs. Most of the rest, including the front end, brakes and wheels, are from a 2010 Suzuki GSX-R. Martin also made the gas tank, while the pipe is from Vance & Hines.
