more Suzuki RB50 info.
Here follows even Philip Murphy's MiniBusa pictures, his '01 Hayabusa
and the '87 RB50 are painted with matching color schemes...
1987 Suzuki GSX-R50 (RB50)
I've taken both bikes
to a lowrider car/bike show and almost everyone checked
it out or wanted info where to get one. I even had a midget
try to trade me for a 1971 Monte Carlo!
Looks pretty impressive,
eh? I think it looks really good!
a picture of Philip's Hayabusa.
Owner: Philip Murphy,
Comments: The MiniBusa, as I like to call it, is a '87 GSX-R50
I purchased about four months ago from a guy who had it and a
ZX-11. It was in decent shape with new plastic from Teamcalamari
and painted Pearl White. I got the original bodywork with it.
It ran good so I left the motor stock and focused on making a
MiniBusa to clone the big one ('01 Hayabusa with the same paint
A two week paintjob turned into a three month build. I
completely disassembled the bike and had any steel part visible
chrome plated, including the frame, wheel hoops, bracket assemblies,
tripleclamp and whatever else you see in the pics.
It definitely is fun to ride around town and gets so many looks
and compliments. The bike is no race winner, and the handling
takes some getting use to. It will cruise with me (235lbs) on
it at about 35mph with a top speed downhill at 47mph. The brakes
are great and it's not that uncomfortable to ride.
From what the previous owner told me only 600 of these bikes ever
came to the United States in 1987, and they did not come with
mirrors, turn signals, or a speedometer. I would like to find
mirrors and a speedo for it, but since I just last week got on-line,
I haven't had time to look for these items. Any help there would
be greatly appreciated.
