i see the front wheel fairing and the tank are still the old style, are you gonna end up painting this bad boy?

how much did all those parts cost, especailly the seat. I dont mind my single headlight on my 98f3 but i'd love to get get a dif seat, i dont like the single.

its definently getting paint LOL. I originaly planned to make a repsol replica but now im leaning toward custom paint.

i have 100 bux in the tail, seat, taillight. still need to get the rear seat or cowl ( probably a cowl since the woman has her own bike now) and 200 for the sides and upper fairings, 75 for the headlight and 50 for the fairing stays. all i need still is the f4i guages probably around 80

If i were just changing the tail then i would use a f4i tail as it looks right with the f3 fairings. here are some pics of me test fitting the 600rr tail on the f3

cant wait to see the final result, nice idea. any fitment issues or just straight bolt on?


nice bunch of stangs, i kinda sold my 89 but the guy never came back to pay so it looks like i am going to keep it now. i dont care to much for the 4 eye but damn i love the 87-93. do i see some type of forced induction on the black one?

well as far as fitment goes, nothing "fits" but its all pretty close.you have to make an adapter to bolt the upper fairing stay to the bike which offsets it about 1 1/2" out. the rear most bolt holes almost line up but i am making new tabs and welding them on to make it line up better like factory. Most have used them anyway and they look good. as for the tail it will take some work to figure out mounts.

THanks for the comment on the stangs. the black one is all motor right now but looking to do either a blower or single turbo. The 86 is a rare car. It is a t-top coupe which there were only a handful ever made and less than 10 were 86's and from what i have gathered this is the only one with the 4cyl 4spd

what year is that white CBR I see in there? the F4i bodywork looks great on your bike btw. I like the look. that white CBR looks like an earlier model from the 600F series.

Not sure rear wheel HP but the motor was dynoed before install and it made 390hp/425tq runs 12.2 @ 110 in the quarter. did i mention its a 347 DSS short block?? It is NOT a drag car at all!!! I built it to handle well to look perty too LOL. I threw the maximum motorsports catalog at it. only thing left is a 5lug conversion with bear brakes and a 6point cage. I did some open practice runs with the local SCCA guys and had a ton of fun. that torque kinda hurts in the turns but damn does she fly out of em

well, seeing as its already a customization, why not do a custom paintjob to go with it? just let your imagination run wild and create something on paper, and put it to metal.
