We all love motorcycles through and through, but typically our passions wane as we get on in years. That isn't the case with 60-year-old Peter Jones though, and judging by his 2004 Suzuki GSX-R1000, his zest for tuned sportbikes is stronger than ever.

When he's not breaking for tea time Peter's hard on the trick AP Racing brakes, and the high-end performance parts list only starts there. From Marchesini wheels to the adjustable tripe trees this Suzuki is a velocity junky's dream ride.
Inspiration for the build came from Crescent Suzuki-a well-respected tuning firm based in Britain. Considering it's fielded both WSB and MotoGP teams it's safe to say it knows its stuff. Jones modeled his GSX-R on Crescent's good-looking WSB racer, and the result is one of the sharpest bikes on the road.
