Default gs1175, "time slip" retro build

as all my posts for this build were done in the winter build off i thought that any work done after that had closed should have a new thread in the build forum

so here we go with the continuing evolution

last night i fitted the new BLACK levers and bandit mirrors & R&G bar ends.
its the little things that make the difference

SHIT HAPPENS!!!!!

I never dropped a comment on the build off thread, but this bike, from the beginning, has been one of my personal list of top 10 best builds on CF. It is difficult to believe that thing started life in a dealership as a thin tire, spindly fork monstrosity with too much superbike DNA to ever deny it being the moto equivalent to King feckin' Kong. Then something like two decades pass and it ends up in the shed of a guy with a vision, gets torn down to the very core of what makes it a bike, and rebuilt with all the modern amenities that make it what it is now... and I'm unsure there is even a label to use for these updated superbikes.... they are just all alone in what they are. Every single one of these sorts of builds are totally hand crafted masterpieces of ingenuity and refinement.

Every update the build off thread got I was clicking furiously to open the link and see where it went next, how far it would go before it was "done". You didn't disappoint at all. I'm actually quite jealous that I haven't even finished the engine mounts on my GS1000 "Superbike" build and you've already completed an entire bike!



Looks stunning, and probably rides just as good as she looks on the side stand!

Thanks Ratfighter, that is a very kind write up, the finished item has far surpassed anything that i could have dreamed of at the start of the build, she is a dream that i have had an itch to accomplish for a very long time, I am very glad that i got round to assembling her.
if all the positive comments that i have received from this and other Forums, are anything to go by, then i think i got it just as it should be.

Steve

As i had changed the clutch, i had her up and down the street (private road honest officer) for a quick try out, all seems to be good
steering lock still to sort, just need to finish the bracket, get it welded and then its in for MSVA.
have filled in all the application paperwork, just need to post it when i have the date for a free day to get it done.
should have it sorted within the next two weeks!

Totally agree.. the term Restomod comes to mind, but it hardly does this gorgeous beast justice. Amazing job
