Hey folks. ive spent some years thinkign what bike would suite me, im a mix between cruiser/chopper and sports bike person.

Im also a person that if i think of a bike and cant find it, i get annoyed.

so after i stumbled across this

M109R Intruder custom Thunderbike Arnott Air-ride, raw design Suzuki Vzr 1800 - YouTube

and other vids showing the immense power just like a sports bike.

so, at first i wanted to do a fture project aroudn the bike itself, but then undertood a few days ago that i could just work aroudn the engine and deal with the frame that i want etc and find the simlar suspension thats shown in the video but one that elevates higher etc.

so my question being, anybody know how much the engione would be ALONE in the uk.

Well, the site is geared up for Honda trail bikes so a Suzuki road based cruiser is not exactly anyone's specialist subject.

The M109R is not a common bike and used engines are likely to be scarce. It's easier to find a whole bike then an engine plus you've then got everything you need to run it. Strip the bike and sell everything you don't need.

IF
you could find an engine and running gear, I don't think you'd see much change out of £2k to £2.5k

You could just get a full power VMAX...
