Suzuki GSX1400

The McLean machine! A GSX1700 monster!

GSX1400Many projects are started, but how many ever get finished? Well here’s one that’s now built and ready for action. The McLean GSX1700 is a purpose built drag bike, and here’s some info in it from their Facebook page.

It’s taken 3 years, over 3,000 hours of hard graft, many stumbling blocks to overcome, many sleepless nights, a few arguments, and help from some of the best people we have the pleasure to call friends.

When we started this project to hopefully build the most extreme GSX1400 in the world, we could never of imagined the bike would turn out like this, and to be honest, we’re all speechless right now. Aside from waiting on some new bodywork fasteners, the GSX1700 Nitrous Outlaw is finally finished!
