    Oh i got it...bro if i ultimately have to go for a chassis then why not a workable one ?

    it was a package deal..this guy bought this stuff for a project but never got the chance to get down with it...he scrapped it and i got my hands on some thing atleast 6-months of quality time to be spent on... love working with hands and building things o

    looking for a suzuki gsx400 chasis will be a waste of time as its 180kg heavy and the heavy bike will ruined the pleasure of riding 400cc bike you will feel like you are riding a 200-250cc bike if you want to put it in gs 500 why not use gs500 original engine with gs 500 chasis which will provide with better economy and more 5hp
