With 2020 behind us, it’s time to start 2021 off right. What better way to do that on OSS than have a properly homebrewed EFE as the first BOTM?
I like bikes in general, Suzukis specifically and shedbuilt EFEs are on the top of my list.
There’s something about getting up close and personal with someones project that he is tackling all by himself, underterred when diving into the unknow but also not afraid to ask.
Pretty much perfect for OSS; sharing information has helped this bike come to be and that’s all we’re here for.
Shaun started with “a pile of bits” bought from a mate and over the course of a year (give or take, not counting lockdown-delays) it has turned into something that does OldSkoolSuzuki.info proud.
Naturally starting off with a general idea, it’s hard to argue with wanting your own custom EFE, even if they’ve been done before.
That’s not the point; the point is doing it yourself and overcoming the difficulties you find yourself, in your own way.
To outsiders, park a few EFEs next to eachother and they’ll say they’re the same bike, and they wouldn’t even be completely wrong.
What makes these bikes truly unique is the story behind them and for this bike, that has been minutely documented.
