Hayabusa 10th Anniversary
As Alexander Hamilton wrote nearly 235 years ago in The Farmer Refuted, "A fondness for power is implanted, in most men, and it is natural to abuse it, when acquired." While the first Secretary of the Treasury could not possibly have had the Suzuki Hayabusa motorcycle on his mind, even with access to the most prescient of performance prognosticators of the period, Gregg’s Customs Suzuki-commissioned 10th Anniversary edition of the Peregrine Falcon undoubtedly pays homage to Hamilton’s words.

Suzuki’s legendary Hayabusa enjoys its 10th Anniversary, and receives special treatment from Gregg’s Customs. His treatment of the pavement ripper is highly functional from both performance and appearance standpoints. Gregg DesJardins sits for an exclusive interview with editor Don Williams.
American Suzuki Motor Corporation (ASMC) announced today that it will unveil two brand-new custom Suzuki motorcycles at the Suzuki display during the MotoGP and AMA Superbike weekend at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca in Monterey, California, on Saturday, July 4, 2009, at 11:-00 a.m.
First to debut is an innovative Gregg’s Customs and Sportchrome collaboration. Commemorating the groundbreaking Hayabusa is a new customized 10-year anniversary iteration of the fastest production Suzuki available.
Gregg DesJardins’ life-long passion for the welder’s art was initially sparked out of frustration. As a 15-year-old boy building a hot rod with his father in the family’s garage, DesJardins’ vision for the project was thwarted by the duo’s lack of welding ability. That hindrance catalyzed within the teenager a profound determination to master the discipline. DesJardins received a wire-feed arc welder as his high school graduation present and embarked upon an autodidactic apprenticeship.
From an early age, Gregg DesJardins was inadvertently spoon-fed a unique customization and chrome awareness. He grew up around the creative environs of the family’s garage, in close proximity to his father’s passion for building hot rods. A wonderful metallurgical playground of rolling cut-and-chopped Detroit iron fueled young DesJardins’ fertile imagination and set the developmental gears in motion.
