New Jack Suzuki Katana by Icon 1000

Mar 2, 2015

Category: Rides

Put a 1982 Suzuki Katana in front of some people and they’ll simply see a 1982 Suzuki Katana. But the custom kings at Icon 1000 saw an opportunity for greatness, and they achieved it with this dazzling new build dubbed the “New Jack.”

Cutting a decidedly futuristic profile, New Jack makes its first impression (if it’s coming at you) with its uniquely arranged LED headlights, along with the Honda front end and Suzuki rear. The engine was taken from a newer Suzuki Bandit, and the ride promises to be as supple or stiff as you need it, as the two shock absorbers are mounted in the same way as if there were only one. Add in plenty of carbon fiber and nice touches like hand-stitched seats and you’ve got a truly unique ride.
