1960 Jensen 541R in paint

Our beautiful 1960 Jensen 541R paint is currently setting in our paint booth. As the shall is made of fibreglass, the paint cannot be cured at regular ‘baking’ temperatures. Instead, it’s cured at a less intense 20 degrees. This will mean the car won’t be able to be perfected and polished until next week, but we’re sure the perfect finish will be worth the wait.

1984 Suzuki GSX 400T Cafe Racer Project

Here at Bridge Classic Cars, we’ve just acquired this 1984 Suzuki GSX 400T motorcycle. This air cooled 400c Suzuki is in dire need some attention. As part of this vehicles restoration, we will be modifying the vehicle in cafe racer style. The current plan is to paint the bodywork cream with a tan leather cafe racer seat. The handlebars will also be lowered to create a sleeker profile to this motorcycle. We can’t wait to see where this project will lead but we’re proud to bring this tired Suzuki back to life.
