Hi Leon.....good to see you here too! Chris...thanks again mate, as for the compliments from the others! Yep, I did end up taking the bike with me to Australia in a 20ft container (along with my other personal effects). I'm happy that I didn't sell it....it's a rather unique machine.
As you pointed out Chris, those pics are quite old. The tail section is g-o-n-e. As you might have gathered from another thread on TWF, I am putting on a 2004 Gixxer 1K tail section with a Hot Bodies undertail. Also, I have a VFR750 single sided swingarm to fit.
Little front wheel? Ha! Fat chance! The pics show a 17" F3 front wheel, but that is long gone too. The bike now has 2002 CBR954 upside down forks fitted with a 6 spoke RC51 'SP1' 17" front wheel, and a BST carbon fiber front fender. Also, I have another special (new) addition to the bike that I am going to keep secret (for now).
I have some parts at the powdercoater and when I get them back, I can put the bike back together. I'll post pics (including pics of the secret addition) when I am done - within 2 weeks.
