The first time I saw a picture of Kaname Suzuki's "Foggy" BROS special I knew I had to see more. Thankfully, Kaname granted my request and sent me these images to post here for all of us to enjoy. I think it's pretty safe to say this isn't just the most unique and original BROS specials in Japan, but probably the whole world. Nice one Kaname Suzuki!

This relatively standard (for now anyway) 1988 650 BROS belongs to Phil Totty in North Yorkshire, England. You can see his village and the Dales in the background . . . nice countryside. Phil, drink a pint for me at the local!

Not long after buying his Hawk GT from Kirk Roy, Don Burger began his own modifications. So far they include - a modified CBR900 RR rear shock, CBR600 F2 clip-ons, stainless steel brake lines, TBR RC31 upper fairing, Beasley RC31 tail section with a modified stock Hawk Seat (final seat yet to be determined), and shortened rear turn signals.

This purple 650 BROS belongs to Linda Maude. Linda couldn't resist the temptation and had "When Will I Be Famous" painted on the tank . . .it was only a matter of time.

Shane W. Edwards says his gray '88 Hawk GT is stock except for the TBR left exit exhaust pipe, but expect more to come as soon as the "money rolls in".

Richard Holt coaxed an employee from Rolls Royce out of this 650 BROS, but not before he had made the smooth looking end can you see above and added a K&N air filter and Dynojet jet kit. Dynotesting indicates 53 bhp at the rear wheel and Richard says he's delighted with the bike, apart from its Japanese BROS title! Sounds funny, but I've heard that from quite a few BROS owners. Please e-mail me if you can explain why Honda chose the "BROS" name and I'll pass it on.

Here are a couple of pictures of Barry Glading's red '89 Hawk GT. Mods include TBR left exit pipe with oval can, topless airbox, rejetting to suit, TBR clip-ons, and white powder coated wheels. Barry's from Flordia where he says "the only decent corners are highway ramps". What a shame!

Probably one of the first things you'll notice about Barrie Ibbotson's BROS is the slightly nonstandard looking fuel tank. Having seen it in person, I have to say pictures don't do it justice. The tank is really an alloy work of art which gives Barrie's BROS an approximate range of 270kms (168 miles) between fill-ups. Cool!

After high-siding his 1988 Hawk GT at a Watkins Glen trackday, Ron Magin began work on the bike you now see above. Let me just say he's been busy and I'll list some of the things he's done - Fox Twin Clicker rear shock, Gold Valve Cartridge Emulators with straight-rate springs, stainless steel brakelines - rear line routed through the swing-arm, upside-down rear brake caliper mod, M4 high exit exhaust pipe, Factory Stage 1.0 jet kit, modified Unifoam air filter in original air box with snorkel removed and lid drilled, Powerbronze Venom fairing, and Triumph's Roulette Green paint with a black '70's style race stripe. Ron says the engine's next . . .

Olivier sent me these pictures from Bangkok, Thailand. I think that's reason enough for me to post these pictures, but as you can see this isn't just a bike from from an exotic location . . . it's a very clean looking BROS.

Tony Seranti is a motorcycle mechanic in Kent, England and this is, or was, his 400 BROS. I say was because it's no longer a 400cc machine. It now has a 1998 XRV 750 motor with a Stage 3 Dynojet jet kit, TBR exhaust with carbon race can, and 58.2bhp & 45 ft-lb of torque at the rear wheel. To sort the suspension, Tony installed RVF400 forks with WP springs up front & a modified CBR 900 rear shock at the back. His bike also sports a nice set of Japanese aftermarket rearsets. What did it all cost? A mere £1,500! Tony, do you have any more spare RVF400 front-ends lying about?
