Based in Stockholm, Sweden, Marcus Carlsson always wanted to build his own motorcycle – a ‘caf√©-racer-going-on-superbike’ as he puts it. So he’s put together the machine you see here, which is based on a Suzuki TL1000S and is inspired by a Husqvarna roadracer from the 1930s.

The V1000 GT concept uses the stock, 125bhp Suzuki TL1000 v-twin engine, with a custom-built exhaust system. The original TL1000 fork is retained, while the rear shock is an Ohlins item. Marcus reckons it took about 1,200 hours of work to put the bike together.
