he's got another project going on as well...

Oh, and in case you thought this bike was a little crazy, I'm build a parts bin CBR 600 F3 into a dirt bike. No cush drive, WP 48 forks and shock, underseat aluminum gas tank, YZ 450 subframe and seat. It's going to be sweet. I might even supermoto it. I'm at the beginning stages on this one and basically waiting for parts.





Awesome!!!  :thumleft:

Now wait for the Wilddog prophets of doom to come and shout about how stupid this idea is also  :lamer:

For those of you who's ever ridden a GSX-R 1000 or R1, you will know that those engines do have a lot of low-down grunt already, they're big enough for it. Now the Fazer is a R1 tuned for even more midrange. They are serious armstretchers. These are 950SE's on steroids.

Probably not geared for slow tecnical riding.
