Suzie Q Sparky’s 81 Bobber

1981 xs650 bobber suzyq 3This is Suzie Q. She came into my life as a rusty, dented, barely running barn find, and 3 years of work have transformed her into this.

Mods- Engine bored, ported, and polished, carbs jetted.


Hoos racing TT style pipes.


Forward controls are modified Suzuki intruder parts with cable operated rear brake.


Tank and rear shocks are Honda Rebel. Wheels are 21″ 64 spoke front and 19″ 48 spoke rear.


Bars are 12″ TC bros. Rear fender is stock, rotated forward and mounted to the swingarm for that “tire hugging” look.


Tailights are model A and a LED license plate surround.


Headlight is Ebay on a custom bracket.


She’s still got a starter and battery, but a simplified wiring harness.


She’s everything you’d want in a feisty dame, and she turns heads everywhere she goes.
