Suzuki GS450 Bobber – The Resurrected Rat by Karnage Kustomx

This is one bad ass looking custom Suzuki and made equally cool by the rather tasty location used for the photo shoot.  The Resurrected Rat is a simple light weight custom Suzuki GS450 Bobber created by Karnage Kustomz who work out in a garage out in the woods in Dallas, Georgia and have stripped down this bobber removing all turn signals and gauges. The bike was bought from a guy who had owned it since he was 18 and turned it into a rat bike hence why this project has been called the ‘Rat Resurrection. Karnage said ” I never heard the bike run when purchased but the previous owner attempted to get it started before I left so he could hear it one last time.  So I trusted and believed that it ran. The bike was a true rat bike with speaker wires used for repairs on the original wire harness and crooked homemade bars, plywood seat wrapped in vinyl and so on.”

With over 115lbs stripped from the 1982 GS450 and with an open exhaust and intake the bike will surprise anyone who rides it. The back half of the frame has been cut off and reconfigured to achieve a very aggressive stance while still keeping the rear suspension. The frame was painted in flat black spray paint with 20 cans being used on the frame swing arm and rims. I love the tank, you don;t see may like that, it has been hammered in on both sides and sprayed olive primer and over sprayed in black with a cheeky bit of wet sand to give it that cool rat look. Karnage said “The skull on the tank was from the original owner and was brought out through wet sanding to keep some of its original rat chop home grown coolness.”

This is one sweet looking custom and clearly the guys at Karnage Kustomx have got some seriously good skills. I’ll certainly be checking out there work to see what they come up with next. I love the style and how they showcase the bike, understated yet clearly very high quality and skill craftsmanship.
