Ryca Motors, the creator of the Suzuki S40 Savage based café racer dubbed the “CS-1”, have opened their official online store.
The Ryca CS-1 was originally developed by former NASA engineer Casey Stevenson, he was hunting around for a single-cylinder café racer to use as LA-urban-transport and couldn’t find what he was looking for, until one day a Suzuki S40 Savage went past. He saw beyond the budget-cruiser exterior of the bike, he looked deeper and saw what the S40 could be, with a little work.
All the parts needed to complete the transformation are available through the web shop and you have the choice of buying the parts bit by bit or all at once. The full kit costs $2,995 USD and a second-hand Suzuki S40 will cost you between $1,000 and $2,000 (check eBay here for Suzuki S40 listings).
