A lot of people call this one of the best motorcycles ever made, and I tend to agree.

I guess Honda was being nice to the other brands on the market by not offering a naked version... would have stolen all their sales So instead, we have to build our own!

I'm starting with a reasonably clean '99 model:



I did strip the fairings and a couple other parts before the 1st:













Proof of start date:





The (rough) design brief... CBR1000RR tail, F4i RSU fork swap, handlebar and riser conversion, round headlight, front mount radiator, custom exhaust header with low/underbelly muffler and exit, powdercoat lots of parts. Overall, the usual crisp, clean, loaded-with-details build with a hint of modern cafe style.

Just a little done today, but a little is always better than nothing.

Coolant drained, rads off, brakes (mostly) bled out, rear axle nut cracked loose. On track for fork swap by weeks end

Washer fluid bottle makes a good drain catch for coolant streaming from the drain at the pump





Not much, but at least it looks a bit lighter with the side rads gone.



Then I loaded the CB for a trip to the ethanol-free pump

More disassembly.



Removed hand controls, linked brake system, clutch slave, pair system, other misc stuff.



She's pretty grungy, got my work cut out for me to make it clean and shiny again.





Always gets worse before it gets better...



Found a broken airbox lid



Fitted the F4i forks and triples, and a set of brake calipers. The VFR wheel fits almost perfectly.

I did have to cut off the F4i steering lock stops to fit the lower, will make new ones later.







Then I offered up the CBR tail



I'm happy with how the shapes will blend. With the right blend panels and paint, it will look factory.
