From Letter Carrier to Cafe Racer: Dream Wheels Heritage’s Custom Suzuki GN250

Published: August 31, 2016 | By: American Luxury Staff

Sometimes motorcycle customizers can find a diamond in the rough from a seemingly unchangeable bike, and that’s exactly what tuner Dream Wheels Heritage did for one of its customers with a 1992 Suzuki GN250.

The Portugal-based shop successfully completed a spunky café racer made to zip around the island of Madeira from a GN model originally used by the Portuguese Postal Service and in riding schools around the country.

Dream Wheels re-worked almost everything, rebuilding the engine from the ground up and creating a brand new subframe, front fender, and rear license bracket.

Plenty of parts have been re-purposed on the bespoke café racer, too, such as the refinished Sachs Lotus Special V5 tank, an exhaust made from a pair of EMGO mufflers, and a set of Showa shocks sourced from a Honda CB750.

The bike was given a Mini Cooper Hot Chocolate-colored, matte-finished paint job with gold notes, including the seat’s prominent “19,” the owner’s lucky number.
