Bike of the Month January 2016

BOTM JAN 2016What do you get if you take one well used slabby and add a heap of mojo?

If there was only 1 right answer, this machine has to be a contender.  Carefully hand moulded, this early GSXR is the stuff many of us can but dream of owning. It’s built to be fast, it’s beautiful and it’s this month’s Bike of the Month.

Please join with us in congratulating Scara on his 1109 Turbo Slabside build here as it sets the benchmark for Bike of the Month in 2016.

Bike of the Month December 2015

BOTM DEC 2015Each month, the site is carefully scoured for the very best offerings from the technical and project sections to justify the award of the accolade ‘Bike of the Month’.

This month’s choice demonstrates the versatility of the Old Skool Suzuki in adapting to different careers. In a game where form follows function, there is little on this machine that hasn’t been tweaked, fettled or upgraded in order to achieve the very best performance results – whatever the job.

Congratulations to you and your machine johnny1bump!

Bike of the Month November 2015

BOTM NOVEMBER 2015

It would be no more than stating the obvious to talk about oldskoolsuzukis being as much about the journey as the destination.  Starting with a dream, a flash of inspiration – we follow a well trodden path of empty wallets and skinned knuckles but hopefully at some point, there is a fine motorcycle to ride. And then the next chapter begins.

This month’s bike of the month goes to Gammaboy’s Katana. The attention to detail and quality of finish is to a standard many aspire to. Long may you continue to adapt and overcome, Gammaboy  – and congratulations! Thank you for sharing your story ….. so far.

Bike of the Month October 2015

BOTM oct 2015

As the autumn air begins to nip, we dig deep to harness the enthusiasm and kick on the determination to see the final few nights of the summer months astride our newly resurrected machines. This month’s Bike of the Month award goes to a GS which has challenged to the last but is oh so worthy.

For those who have not yet caught up with 370steve’s progress thread in the OSS Member Project section of the forum, where have you been!? Read all about it here.

Crack a beer, 370steve! That’s one beauty of a machine you’ve built yourself there.

Bike of the Month September 2015

BOTM-Sep15As a sub-genre of an elite group of motorcycles, the Turbo ET has come into its own in the past year and one in particular stands out from the crowd.

This month’s Bike of the Month award goes to the busiest, most social of all the ETs in the gang – stand up and take a bow Paulm. The ‘company demonstrator’ has a lot to answer for.

BOTM 07 2015
After so many years in the wilderness it is great to have our URL live again with a front page and a buzzing and active forum. While the Admin team that built this new site were busy running the Facebook page and plotting the return of OSS one man called Ash took the initiative to start the temporary forum. We and many other OSS junkies owe you a big fat thank you for all the work that you put in to running that forum.
To celebrate the return of the site and as a way of showing our thanks to you for all your work we want to bestow upon you the honour of being the recipient of our very first “Bike of the month”.

Bask in the glory my fiend, you earned it.

With thanks from all of us.

BTW, yes BOTM is back so get building 🙂
