    But I just bought a r1 front end and rear swingarm, plus some new oversized white wall tyres, I was going to rattle can it black and add some silver and red chequered stikers on the tank and some clubman bars , then to finish the bike , I am going to get a seat hoop installed and add a brown cafe seat to complete the look. I have started growing a beard and even some bought some beard oil

    Gonna be killer , am talking to Netflix about doing it doco style to inspire others to create something custom, we are in discussions about how much grinder time I will have to have, they say sparks are cool and it will draw in the viewers , plus a healthy dose of craft beer and barista made coffee. Apparently I have to buy a blue healer so they can do random cuts from the grinder sparks to the dog watching the build in progress , I have to make some gaffe about asking the dogs thoughts on flat bars or clubmans then when the dog barks, he gives me the go ahead for the clubmans

    Also looking for some extras to help out with the rattle can paint job, must have a brushed flanny shirt and have some roll your own smokes. Do a good job and you can have a craft beer or 3

    He won’t ship to Australia , me and the blue heeler are off to Bunnings , might make some 3 into 6 chambers out of copper pipe and weld some empty bullet shells on it for that steam punk look

    Just realised that I don’t have a welder because I spent most of bike money on South American coffee beans and tribal tattoos taken from a long lost Brazilian man eating tribe , lucky Bunnings has a tube of liquid nails that is within budget

    I am excited to announce that I have decided on fitting a suicide shifter , I don’t want to mark my sandles on the shift pedal , thinking of using a golf putter and wrapping it in exhaust heat shield

    Is this sort of junk what happens when you have generations of 'participation award' recipients?

    I think you're ready for stand up comedy. Plenty of good material there.

    motor blew- some mechanical failure and will micro exam later. spoke to an old mechanic a while ago and he called them grenade motors and they had little end/gudgeon pin problems like the rod breaking or the gudgeon pulling out of the piston. will get to the bottom of it but not a high priority.

    You don't know how close to the truth that is (except for the tea bit). :lolsign:

    when a motor rattles at the drags it is gone. blown enough grey engines to know. will check the engine when i pull it out. i believe kiffsta once said he did have 3 fzr,s fail and moved on to other brands for reliability.will this motor be revved to the redline- not likely.

    I think Linkin ran 9.7 on his FZR at Gunnedah and then ran 8.8 on his ZXR at the same strip. Even taking into account different weather conditions and rider experience, I think the ZXR is a quicker bike on the drag strip. CBR seems quicker too. Never run a GSXR down the strip, so unknown. From riding my wife's GSXR (early twin carb version) on the street, I would say it might be the slowest of the lot. Good thing about handicap racing is you don't have to destroy your bike or run the fastest in order to win. Looking forward to seeing @risky and the FZR back at the strip.

    Anyone know much about the gb400, I picked this one up yesterday. Has a broken fairing which can be fixed, thinking this might serve for my cafe racer fix and the gt380 Can go back to stock

    A good thing, light, reliable and fairly swift if ridden well. Uses the Honda XL/XR RFVC dry sump engine so parts no problem. The seat and fairing are not original. If you don't want it a bloke here is looking for one.
