If you do find who can re-create them, post it up here. I thought about changing from a Motoxxx to this, maybe i can do both!

I hoping someone out there still has a set that we can send to a place like EVO MX for reproduction, even a used set would be a great starting place.

What year Suzuki are you looking to put these on ? I think I can help

Im talking with Throttle Jockey now, I think they can do them, but if they if something comes up and they can't, I really appreciate the offer to help. I want to do a replica build, so it would be a 1997 RM 250.

K-Rae said A full kit is $199, + $50 to recreate that kit from scratch, but they dont do seat covers. Throttle Jockey said their design fee is $75 an hour or $1.25 a minute, again no seat cover, and are checking if they have issues doing the Troy dragon.

I think before I go ahead and get anything printed, I need to find a seat cover to get them to match. This is not going to be easy to find.

Definitely going to be tough to find. McGrath used a black seat cover during the nationals that year, so if you can't find the cover, you can always make it look like the outdoor bike.

I actually have a set of plastic from MC's bike when he was on a Suzuki, I believe i have both shrouds, side number plates, and the front fender. I don't remember about the rear fender and I know I don't have the front plate

Hi Hugh,
Do you still have these Suzuki plastics from MC's bike for sale ?

I have these I don't really want to just sell them outright but I might consider a trade for some jerseys or something along those lines

Im still looking for a seat cover to then match the graphics to. When I decide to give up on that hunt, then it seems there are several good places to get them remade made at but I haven't chosen one yet.

N-Style owns the rights to the "Dragon Logo", might want to give them a call and get a quote.

They also make their own seat covers in house, they might be able to help you.

A few updates on this project. The build is almost done. I have had a lot of work done to get reproduction graphics made, and after quite a few notes back and forth, they should be complete in the next few weeks. Thank you to Matt and Wes at Throttle Jockey.

Frame


Motor. Case and covers powder coated


Progress. It took awhile but I got both top and bottom applied clamps.


I got the yellow front plate thanks to harescrambled and quicken.


I cut the front fender like the Suzuki teams did back then. Matthes talked to RT to confirm they did it to help stop the bikes from overheating.


The biggest update is that I was super lucky to have a fellow SoT bike builder help me get a seat cover for the bike. So thank you again to jerry atrick moto! Still can't fully believe this really happened.

I thought they cut the fenders to clear the brace they used, that I think had a small black carbon fibre fender on???? It was bolted on the top of the lower fork legs to prevent the right side up forks flexing ( I think it can be seen in the above side shot of the bike ) McGrath soon reverted back to USD forks if memory serves, as per the out door photo.
Bike looks awesome though, far better looking bike than the 1st gen alloy frame CR that he could have ended up on that year, can't wait to see it finished.

Brace and small black fender can clearly be seen on these shots of Greg Albertys bike and is present on the McGrath bike above.

That brace was to lessen the flex of the forks, so yeah they might have had to cut it for that as well, but this is what I was told. RT was a test rider for Suzuki then so I believe him too.

Hope you don't mind I cut in Bman. Here is the start of my Mc RM build with original PC graphics and Guts cover . But I couldn't find all the rest of the body graphics. Now thanks to all Bmans work I will have the replica trim decals to finish the body kit.

Thanks Bman, I always thought it was kinda stange that Mc's team Suzuki bike had PC graphics and Greg Albertyns bike had N style. If you look at this cover pic from Cycle News Jan 1997 of MC it clearly shows him and his Suzuki with the same N style graphics as Gregs.. I personally like the Suzuki of Troy graphics better. So why the change in Graphics? Was it SOT or Mc who wanted a little different look?
