Project Time
 
So let's start the story here.

all of my friends are rebuilding or putting money into their cars.
One friend is currently doing 3 BMWs anywhere between 1980-1994.

Other friend is doing his MX-6 up. Not like the ricers who stick a Canadian exhaust on it with a cold air intake and think it's awesome. We are talking love of the car.

So I always wanted a Motorcycle, not a real fan of cars beside Stingrays and old classics.

So I decided on getting a bike and I did, now with this comes with project.

I put over 5km on my bike in the summer, and if you know Canada that's a fair amount. and I love biking and decided to go a head and do a project bike before I get a new bike.

Sadly, I have to start rebuilding soon due to...











So this is my bike.
98 ZX-6R
Guess what, 102XXX. And she runs so damn amazing. No clutch issues, nothing at all. She runs like she has 30KM on her.

Now with that being said, also never seen rain unless gets caught in it :[.
which she did in these pictures. Kinda dirty from the pickup from rain but enjoy.

So it's getting colder up here in Nova Scotia. And it sucks to ride in. But unluckily this happened.

Yeah I lowsided, bummer it happened! But these gives me a excuse to get her ready for the project. Throwing these fairings in the garbage as soon as they are off, and can't for that.

current progress.

I`ll keep updating as she gets build and everything starts getting rebuilt/polished and if I get new parts! I'll make a actually post later and keep you guys with updates.

Wait till you guys see the paint and design!

(also, any haters say I shouldn't do this to an old bike or blah blah blah, please ignore my post, thank you)

Enjoy :]

Old bike eh? I just chopped two inches out of a 1974 Honda, 1998 isn't old =]

Good luck with it, looks like your off to a good start, wait till you start buying all the fun tools to start doing what you want. Plasma cutter is next on my list lol.

Well for me to start it's a little old haha!

Well I don't have money for the tools, my friends currently have the tools I need and dad ha s a few I will be using !

I wont have much equipment till I have a set career! Until then !

Slipknot666 10-02-2012 06:58 AM

Worst part is, friend ordered me 1200$ parts and only telling me about 500$ what has been ordered. Unfair!


*EDIT* Does anyone know where I can get custom fairings made? Not paint wise or look wise, but completely different molding to match fit other parts of fairings?

Slipknot666 10-06-2012 02:13 PM

Well Don't know who is interested. But did some more work today with a friend.

Stupid dear whistle ... Took forever to take off.

New fan will coming in, and just like this one, will be powder coated to match the bike.

Things you find out about other owners. Never trust em. the damage I've been finding on the fairings... I don't wanna see what else I have to look forward too.

I'm assuming you missed a few zeros there? That's a good milk run with a swing down a back road for everyone who I know that rides.

Good luck with the project. What kind of work are you looking for on the custom parts? Have you considered putting the time into research and fabricating them yourself?

Well you live in PEI. The runs I could do would be amazing out there!

Well I wouldn't do it myself, I'd mess up some wheres along the line or I wouldn't be able to make it look right on my bike.
Also with the idea I have I wouldn't even know where to start.

Luckless 10-06-2012 09:47 PM

Fair warning should you visit PEI on your bike: Pot holes, idiot drivers. (Like pulling U turns in traffic on a bypass or the main drag in the city, during rush hour, kind of idiot.)
