Default Its my therapy!!! Well thats what I tell my wife!!

Hi all, I am new to this streetfighter obsession but not new to changing the look of my Bike.. I am a long term sufferer of Combat PTSD and started sparaying my bike twice a year just to take my mind off things.. Here are my last 2 paint jobs..




Now I have had many a good time in the head down position taing her to the limit where ever I go but due to getting older and having a back injury from when I served in the forces I need to sit up a bit...
So as she runs so good and the money I have spent keeping her in tip top condition on the outside and inside so the only answer is Streetfighter.

I changed the 99 tail for the 2003 as I liked the look..

Then I started polishing every thing as I like the polished alluminum look so here are my wheels

and swingarm + frame





Since those pictures I have polished the reat sets and added oh amd I have polished the side covers as well..and added these..





So as for what next...Relocation the Ohlins steering damper which I have no idea as of yet how to do this Below the headlight (which is on its way..MT-03) I am thinking..Anyone got any tips...

Paint on its way..I am lucky to have a big garage so I have my own spray booth.. Going for Silver metalic course with either Candy apple red over the top or a deeper red Candy..I have plans to do some Ghost graphics under the red as well..

I shall add things here as I go along..

I know I will be back asking for really daft advice so I will apologise now in advance..Some days/weeks my brain just does not work how it should...

Oh by the way I am in the UK so if you dont understand the shit we speak over here Just let me know and I will translate.. Cheers for now..

It was not that dificult , I have teken my Medication so am a bit stoned so will reply with what you need and how to do it tomorrow.. Hardest part was fitting the passenger seat cowl and it did not line up. If you use a singer race pattern seat you would not have the hole fore the rear light so you weould either have to buy after market rear light to fit on undertail. or cut your own hole for the light assemply.

You will also require a 02-03
battery box and do some cutting..The end battery box for the light needs cutting about 9 or 10 inches and you then need to join the new bit to your the old plastick weld small nuts and bolts or rivits... You need it the correct length so the rear light sits correctly. Bit of a trial and error on that one but finally joined them..used cable ties to get it right first then in with the rivets.

I will post pics tomorrow for you, Just to give you an idea.

X2. That's the whole reason I started building bikes. I found that the busier my hands were the more I could relax
